Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has opened up about why she believes she is still single. The British actress, who shot to fame as Daeynerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series says it’s her hectic schedule that has prevented her from finding love, reports The Mirror.


Since rising to fame as the ‘Mother of Dragons’, Emilia was voted Esquire’s sexiest woman alive in 2015 and has landed lead roles in movies such as Terminator Genisys and Me Before You. In a new interview, the 29-year-old admitted she had an old-fashioned view of love, telling the Sun on Sunday:

“I kept thinking that for clarity of mind, I had to be in one place. Then I realised that’s not how this life is going to work. It makes romance absolutely impossible.

I’m soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it.”

The moment in question is when Daenerys emerges from a blazing inferno completely naked:

“It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.

I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous.

She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her – how could I say no?”
