Emilia Clarke is Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, and gets candid with the magazine in their latest issue. Alongside a steamy black and white photoshoot, Game of Thrones’ Mother of Dragons reveals that she “Wikipedia’d the living crap” out of her HBO audition and shares how she really felt about filming the early, nudity-filled episodes.

After meeting her at home in London, Esquire calls her “Half pal, half dominatrix. Half kid sister, half sexy queen.” Texture subscribers can read the full interview now, complete with a video from the cover shoot, and make up their own minds.
