Emilia Clarke’s advice to her 18-year-old self will inspire others, no matter what your age.

Most of us know British actress Emilia Clarke as the iconic queen Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s hugely popular ‘Game of Thrones’.

The actress who plays the steely yet good-hearted ruler landed the role right out of drama school, but she wasn’t always confident and successful.

Emilia didn’t always fit in at school, and she also didn’t get into drama school the first time she applied, which felt like a crushing defeat at the time.

She shared some advice to her 18-year-old self that anyone of any age can learn from. She talks about following a different crowd, and persevering despite failure. She also talks about appearance, body positivity and loving yourself no matter what you look like.

See Emilia’s advice and compassion below, and learn how a young woman became strong enough to embody a powerful ‘khaleesi’, both on screen and within…
