Emilia Clarke returns for Season 4 of ‘Game of Thrones.’ See why she was recently named the most desirable woman of 2014.

Emilia Clarke may be the mother of dragons as Danaerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show “Game of Thrones,” but she lights a few fires on her own in a sultry new photo spread for VS magazine.

The 26-year-old English actress was recently named the most desirable woman of the year in a poll by AskMen that drew more than 1 million responses.

She topped such beauties as “Community” star Alison Brie, “Blurred Lines” model Emily Ratajkowski and actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson.

Apparently those who responded to the unscientific poll favored women with strength and character, or at least actresses who played women with those attributes.

The usual suspects, mostly actresses and models, rounded out the list, from “Scandal” Star Kerry Washington, “American Hustle” star Amy Adams and “The Wolf of Wall Street’s” Margot Robbie to Kate Upton, Kate Moss and Alyssa Miller.

Clarke is a classically trained actress who worked mostly in theater and small films before landing the part on “Game of Thrones.” Because she appears as a blonde on the show, she’s rarely recognized in public.

She’s a dark-haired brunette. But there’s no mistaking her sultry allure in her latest photo spread.

“Game of Thrones” Season 4 debuts on Apr. 6; in the meantime, check out Emilia’s stunning photos and be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for more news like this.
