Game of Thrones

Emilia Clarke
GOT Character
Famously known on the show as ‘The Mother of Dragons’, Daenerys is determined to unseat Cersei Lannister by winning the Iron Throne. After finally reaching Westeros by ship, Daenerys most recently wiped out Lannister soldiers at Highgarden before journeying north and facing the White Walkers atop her most fierce dragon. The loss of one of her dragon children has ignited a fire in Daenerys which will no doubt serve her well against the undead and the formidable Lannisters.
