Honestly, it did not really come as much of a surprise when Emilia Clarke was declared the Sexiest Woman Alive. When Esquire magazine dropped the announcement, the world knew that the Mother of Dragons is the real deal. But the prize was not just given to Clarke. She proved that she fully deserves it through performance over and over again. Obtaining it was just a matter of time.
According to Esquire, Clarke is most attractive because she manages to portray different characters that are very different from each other. You cannot deny that her acting is good and Clarke could, until now at least, being every character that she had to a level that is very close to reality. Her role as the Targaryen queen, especially, showed how fluently she can emerge as a well-rounded character in a very complex story.
Esquire declared that
“she manages to bring together a number of opposites, to make them natural: sweetness and toughness, emotionalism with a kind of cold-blooded determination.”
What is also most important is that, despite being such a queen on TV, Clarke is a very modest actress who tries to look at life in a positive and funny way. She also likes to keep a low profile. Fame doesn’t get to her easily.
In her cover story, Clarke explained how she became the superstar that she is today and, in case you don’t know yet, it is a very simple story that shows how life can go in the right direction if you do things right. After she got the script for Daenerys Targaryen, she did not have much of a lead to follow and little time to read the books so she “Wikipedia’d the living crap out of it.”
That is how she got the role and everything from then onward just steamrolled in the right angle. Did we mention that this was not the first time she ever got a similar award? Clarke was also nominated as “Woman of the Year” by CQ, a men’s publication that is also widely known. This just serves as proof that she will be around for a while and, with the upcoming Thrones seasons, she might be for a good number of years.
So now that the world knows that the Mother of Dragons is the real deal, what do you think about it? Does Emilia Clarke deserve the spot? Or are there other gorgeous beauties out there who can easily take the number one position?
