"Not to sound too much like an obnoxious actor, but the character never really leaves me. I’ve read all the "Game of Thrones" books many times over, so I sometimes find it easier being on set, because it can be hard to get out of character."
— Emilia Clarke
Daenerys Targaryen (book version) from A Song of Ice and Fire
“I'm really old-fashioned. An Epsom salt bath, that's genuinely better than any massage.”
"I do like a guy being chivalrous. I’m slightly old fashioned at heart when it comes to that kind of thing. My idea of an ideal first date would probably be old school, old fashioned dancing. Daenerys’ idea of an ideal first date I think would probably be somewhere in the desert with a hoard of Dothraki."— Emilia Clarke // How to Date Me (And Khaleesi)

"Where television is fantastic, and is way ahead of film, is it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women so much. Male writers often wanna make a woman either the angel or the whore. Make her the witch or put her on a pedestal. They’re not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to be practical, politically savvy, and not be a good person. You can be a good human being and be shrewd. They’re not two separate things. We are as complex and contradictory as the men." - Natalie Dormer
