'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke is one of the most well-known names in the industry, most popular for her role as 'Daenerys Targaryen' on the hit HBO drama.

Speaking of her dating life, the actress said, “I am single right now ... Dating in this industry is interesting. I have a lot of funny anecdotes, a lot of stuff I can say at a fun dinner. I was (dating actors), but I’m not now.”
Clarke continued, “I mean, I wouldn’t say I’ve completely sworn off them, but I do think actor relationships that are successful are few and far between, and you have to have a ton of trust.”
The 33-year-old recently revealed she underwent two life-threatening brain aneurysms during the first two seasons of Game of Thrones. Emilia, in fact, was hesitant to share stories of her brain surgeries while she was younger as she did not want to labeled as another “celebrity sob story.”
During an interview with The Times, Clarke stated, “I didn’t want to turn it into this celebrity sob story. I didn’t want people’s pity or ‘Oh, poor little rich girl, your successful life ain’t good enough?’ It’s done a huge amount of healing for me, being able to open up about it. I was match-fit six weeks after the second surgery (in 2013).”
