Birthday: May 1
Where She’s From: London, England
Where You’ve Seen Her: This brilliant brunette made her sensational debut as the very blonde dragon wrangler/displaced queen Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones. Her work on GoT also helped her land the role of a lifetime: she's baring it all on stage in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, now on Broadway. Catch her starring opposite Jude Law in the dark comedy Dom Hemingway, in theaters later this year.
