Game of Thrones fans know Emilia Clarke best as mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, but, much like on the show, there’s a lot going on under the surface. Here are five facts about Emilia that even the most ardent GoT fan might not know.
2. She wasn’t the original Daenerys. Say it isn’t so! In the original pilot for GoT, the role of Dany was played by actress Tamzin Merchant, of The Tudors fame. The reasons for the recast have never been disclosed, but whatever the reason, we think HBO made the right decision (no offense, Tamzin)!
4. She’s very animated Or, at least she will be in an upcoming episode of Futurama. Emilia has recorded a role for the sci-fi cartoon where she voices the love interest of Zoidberg. Hey, she dated Khal Drogo, why not Zoidberg?
