‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke named Esquire’s 2015 ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’


Emilia Clarke is the Mother of All Dragons on “Game of Thrones,” and now she has a new title: Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive.

“Half pal, half dominatrix. Half kid sister, half sexy queen,” the magazine’s cover story gushed about the star.

“I was a keen bean,” she described her studious younger self.
