Filmed by Francesco Roversi on his father Paolo Roversi’s cover shoot for the May 2015 issue of Vogue, Emilia Clarke morphs beautifully and effortlessly between her character Daenerys Targaryen and a couture-clad cover star. Through the famous Roversi lens we are gradually introduced to the woman behind the character, the beautiful Emilia Clarke.
Inside the issue, the Game of Thrones actress reveals all, including her parents’ reaction to her becoming an actress, and what it’s like returning for season five as one of TV’s most famous heroines.
“I went back to Game of Thrones and it was like coming home. Just the smell of the hotel in Belfast made me feel safe,” she revealed. “I told myself, forget the big game plan; all I want is to do jobs that make me happy.”
The May issue of British Vogue is on newsstands. Game of Thrones season 5 premieres this Sunday on HBO.
