15 Things You Didn't Know About Emilia Clarke

Arguably one of the most popular Game of Thrones characters, we decided to look past our beloved Khaleesi and find out more about the actress, Emilia Clarke. She plays the part of one of the most prominent female characters in the entire series. Daenerys Targaryen is also a very powerful personage, and as most of the fans of the series have been divided in supporting the different families, a very large part is strongly rooting for the Mother of Dragons.

Emilia, however, as opposed to her character, is a little bit more of a mystery, which is why we decided to learn more about her and simply get an idea of what the real person is like. We think this list will leave you pretty surprised with all of the interesting facts we were able to discover. Read on and find out what else Emilia Clarke has been up to over the years, other than her acting career; you will also learn about her special and unusual skills, as well as some pretty unbelievable things from her childhood.

Remember that scene, where Daenerys had to eat a stallion's heart in the first season of Game of Thrones as part of a pregnancy ritual? Of course you remember it, it was one of the most unforgettable scenes throughout the entire series! Anyway, in real life the heart was made of several pounds of gummy bears and the scene was probably the most challenging of the series - for the actress and the producers alike. Clarke mentioned on several occasions that the heart tasted like "congealed jam, with a hint of bleach".
