Emilia Clarke – ‘Game of Thrones’

Emilia Clarke is probably always going to be remembered for playing the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen, even if the final season of Game Of Thrones turns out to be rubbish (please don’t let it be rubbish). So, it’s fitting that she’s marked the role by marking herself – with a permanent tattoo of the three dragons that her character raised from eggs. (HBO/Instagram)
