Clarke named sexiest woman alive

NEW YORK: Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has bagged the title of the sexiest woman alive in a poll by a men’s magazine.

Esquire made the announcement on October 13 after teasing readers with a clip featuring shots of the 28-year-old actress, reported Huffington Post.

In an accompanying article about Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi on the HBO series Game of Thrones, the magazine described the “gorgeous balance of Emilia Clarke.”

“She manages to bring together a number of opposites, to make them natural: sweetness and toughness, emotionalism with a kind of cold-blooded determination.

“Something in these contrasts explains her sex appeal, too. She can play queen and kid sister, dominatrix and pal,” writes the magazine.
