Meet Emilia Clarke — or as you might know her Game of Thrones' "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen.
The 26-year-old actress has taken a break from raising an army on HBO's hit medieval-fantasy series to play Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Here TV host Josh Rosenzweig sat down with Ms. Clarke to discuss what her small screen and stage roles have in common — turns out that Daenerys and Holly aren't so different: they're both callow young women who dream of being much greater than they are amid a world that preys on innocence.
But Clarke also dishes on how stage differs from her screen work and what it's like playing a role famously brought to life by iconic actress Audrey Hepburn.
