A Look Back at Emilia Clarke’s Low-Key Dating History Over the Years
No matter how you feel about the ending of “Game of Thrones,” one thing is for sure: Emilia Clarke definitely gave an unforgettable performance as Daenerys Targaryen. In addition to breaking millions of hearts in the show’s conclusion, Daenerys’s love life sparked countless theories and debates – and of course, fans wound up shipping Clarke with many of her onscreen love interests, including Jason Momoa and Kit Harington (who happens to be married to his “Game of Thrones” costar Rose Leslie).
Clarke has had several real-life relationships of her own, and she’s also experienced heartbreak. In 2020, when asked what advice she’d give her 18-year-old self, Clarke had some genuine wisdom to offer. “You’re going to feel some serious heartbreak,” she said, per People. “You’re going to feel some proper things, and the reason why it’s going to hurt so much it’s because, that heartbreak is going to make you doubt yourself. You put yourself out on a plate, and you bare everything, and someone says that they don’t really like that, so that makes you feel like you’re not worth it. But you are, and there are lots of people who are going to tell you that you’re worth it. The people in your life when all the lights are off, the real people you really love, just hug them like everyday.”
Over the years, Clarke has remained fairly quiet about her relationship status. Back in 2016, though, the London native admitted that her past movie roles and hectic schedule made it difficult for her to date, though she said she certainly hadn’t lost hope. “I’m soppy, and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work,” she told Marie Claire in 2015, per E! News. “Everyone else seems to manage it.” Take a look back at all the men she’s dated.
