LOOK: ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke proves she’s Queen of Instagram

[Editor’s note: Spoilers ahead!]

For the past six years, Emilia Clarke has successfully portrayed Daenerys Targaryen as both a kind and fearless leader who will do anything to stake her claim to the Iron Throne.

But the dragon queen truly wins behind the camera—particularly, her phone camera.

Here’s proof Emilia Clarke owns Instagram with her “Game of Thrones” co-stars:


1. She always celebrates her castmates.

Prior to shooting together, Clarke was already good friends with Kit Harington, even if their characters were still miles away and barely knew of each other’s existence.

It didn’t stop her from calling the Jon Snow actor “Kitten” and cheered him on for his intense performance:

During Emmys season, she was pumped about girl power. She featured two wonderful photos of Lena Headey who plays Cersei, and Maisie Williams who plays Arya.


And there she is in costume, looking less than regal by a port-a-potty:

She also fulfilled badass women fantasies with Lady Brienne of Tarth, portrayed by actress Gwendoline Christie:

2. She revealed spoilers.

Although we now know about HBO’s disaster with hacks and leaks, the cast and crew had to do their best to keep spoilers under wraps. But not Clarke: here she is with some important new characters:

3. She knows how to have fun.

She revealed some true squad goals with “Kitten” and her righthand woman Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei on the show) who she funked out with at a concert.

She also threw in some witty hashtags with show references:

When she’s not trying to conquer seven kingdoms, she watches football matches with her political advisers, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill):

She also may have been slightly excited to wrap up shooting for the grueling penultimate season, and showed us some strong lip-synch game:

4. She’s still the queen at the end of the day.

For all the fun she has, she doesn’t forget her true allegiance, which is to the people outside Westeros whom she emancipated and have stood by her side.

Here she is ready to win season seven with Emmanuel and Raleigh Ritchie (Grey Worm):

Just before the seventh season premiered, she reminded fans what was hers:

And she wasn’t taking no for an answer:

She’ll do anything—she’s not beyond humiliating enemies. Jon Snow may not bend the knee, but she got him to pretend to be a dragon:

With or without her dragons, Clarke has truly conquered social media. JB
