    It has been five years since the HBO drama ended. But the show has captured the hearts of many and so has Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen. The actress looks back at her journey as Daenerys in conversation with People

    The more distance I have from ‘Game of Thrones’, the more I can quantify it,” Clarke says. “… When I started, you don’t know what you’re doing, you don’t know what you’re surrounded by and you don’t know what you’re taking part in.” She continues, “Now, as more and more time goes between it and me doing it, the more I’m like, that was incredibly special and that was incredibly rare.”
