Who is Emilia Clarke and Where’s She From?

The gorgeous actress was born Emilia Clarke on October 23, 1986. She is the daughter of Jennifer Clarke and her husband, who is a Wolverhampton native. Her mother worked as a top executive for a world-renowned management consultancy company, while her father is a theatre sound engineer. Although Emilia was born in London, it was in Oxfordshire County, South East England, that she was raised along with her older brother.

Emilia’s passion for acting was kindled after watching the musically acclaimed film, Snow Boat at the age of 3. This prompted her to take part in her school’s theatre productions. She first enrolled at Rye St. Antony School, Oxford, before moving over to St Edward’s School, where she completed her high school education. While at St Edward, she featured in the productions of West Side Story and Twelfth Night.

After leaving high school in 2005, Clarke applied to study drama at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the London Academy of Music, but her applications were rejected. However, she was later admitted into Drama Centre London from where she graduated in 2009. While there, Clarke featured in various stage productions, including Sense, a play that was produced by her school in collaboration with the Company of Angels.

Details of Her Acting Career

Soon after she left the Drama Centre London in 2009, Emilia Clarke did various odd jobs while auditioning for film roles. She appeared in two Charity Samaritans commercials, playing the role of a domestic abuse victim. Clarke also featured in Drop the Dog, a short film by the University of London. She eventually landed her TV role in the 2009 British Soap Opera, Doctors.

The following year, she made her film debut, portraying the role of Savannah in Triassic Attack. However, Emilia’s breakthrough role is unarguably her role as Daenerys Targaryen, otherwise known as the dragon queen, in the action thriller series, Game of Thrones. The award-winning television show, which ran successfully for 8 seasons, earned the star actress high praise from moviegoers both locally and internationally.

Before landing the role of Daenerys in the GOT franchise, actress Tamzin Merchant was the original cast for the role. However, after the pilot episode, Tamzin was replaced by Emilia. Clarke starred in the complete eight seasons of the show, which ran from April 2011 to May 2019. For her outstanding performance, Emilia won several awards, including the 2011 EWwy Awards for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and much more.

Asides Game of Thrones, the English actress has starred in several top-grossing films and television shows. Notable among them are Terminator Genisys, where she played the role of Sarah Connor, Me Before You, Last Christmas, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Spike Island, Last Christmas, Voice from the Stone, and Above Suspicion, among others.
