Emilia Clarke for Marie Claire (May 2014)

Emilia Clarke for InStyle UK (April 2014)

“The aftermath was the thing that was harder to deal with. Going in to do my first press junket, that’s a hell of a lot scarier than being naked up on TV!” – on the one thing that’s scarier than nudity 

So your role as a mother of these dragons is really being challenged this year? Yes, exactly.

"My father always says, ‘Never trust anyone who has a TV bigger than their bookshelf.’ So I make sure I read. Back at home, I just put up a massive bookcase and asked everyone I know and love to help me fill it with their favorite books. It’s been quite nice because I’ve learned a lot about my friends and family from what they’ve been giving me. A book says a lot about a person." — Emilia Clarke for InStyle UK (April 2014)

"There are no captions on red-carpet photos that say, ‘This girl trained for two weeks, she went on a juice diet, she has a professional hair and makeup person, and this dress was made for her.’ I just wish they’d say, ‘It ain’t the truth.’" — Emilia Clarke for Flare Magazine (April 2014)
