Emilia Clarke, better known as Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi and the Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones, has been named the sexiest woman alive by Esquire. The title has been previously held by Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz. She receives this honor after being named "woman of the year" a few months back by GQ. The 28-year old actress has also starred in Breakfast at Tiffany's on Broadway and Terminator Genisys. The magazine noted this wide acting range as a main factor for her sexiness:

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.
