Emilia Clarke is one of the televisions most known actresses for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi, on HBO’s original series Game of Thrones. The English actress has taken over with her character’s signature platinum hair and three dragons. In 2013, her characters name was the 1,021 most popular baby name for girls, according to the SSA.
The actress has worked in other productions outside of Game of Thrones such as Me Before You, Triassic Attack, Terminator Genisys, Voice from the stone, Dom Hemingway and will appear in the next Star Wars franchise Solo: A Star Wars Story.
With such a successful career and being named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” in 2015 by Esquire, Emilia Clarke has had a fair share of past relationships. Even though every Game of Thrones fan was hoping for a Relationship to spark with her co-star Kit Harrington, that seems impossible now as Harrington is engaged to their other co-star Rose Leslie. Here is a brief list of Emilia Clarke’s past relationships.
Seth Mcfarland 2012
Emilia and Seth were reportedly dating back in 2012 and split a year later due to long distance. McFarland is best known for being the creator of the comedic cartoon Family Guy and currently stars in The Orville. In Glamour’s May 2016 issue, Emilia opened up about dating while being in the spotlight saying, “Well, a con is you have strangers giving you love-life advice like, ‘I’m a big fan of the show, and I’m not sure what you’re doing with that guy,’ which I didn’t react well to. That happened in New York when Seth and I were together. This guy started to give me advice: ‘Can I get a selfie? And by the way… ‘ Unh-unh, bro.”
James Franco 2013

Rumors sparked a relationship between both actors after being spotted together at an art fair in NYC, back in May 2013. James had apparently even cast her on a project he was working on called The Garden of Last Days but canceled it two weeks before filming began. After that, rumors died down as they both were not seen together romantically again.
Cory Michael Smith 2014
Emilia and Cory both worked on the Broadway show Breakfast At Tiffany’s, in March of 2014. The two were spotted during a Vanity Fair Oscars party, holding hands and slow dancing. Sounds pretty romantic! the couple didn’t continue for much after that, especially after a close friend of Clarke’s had said that the pair was “just friends.”
Jai Courtney 2014

Yo! Grab some thing with two wheels, climb aboard it, get someone cute, have them climb aboard you and get out to support the #distinguishedgentlemansride this September 24. It's GLOBAL. Hit their website for more details on how to get involved, or better yet hit the link in my bio and chuck in a couple bucks to support! The #DGR raises money and awareness in the name of prostate cancer and mental health. Get amongst it. Love ya. @gentlemansride
Emilia began to date Australian actor Jai Courtney after starring in Terminator Genisys in 2014. They dated for a short amount of time, and it was entirely unclear why the couple ended things. In June 2015 Courtney had admitted that he was single.
Even though the actress is currently single, she spoke with Elle Magazine saying ” I kind of set myself with a little rule this year: NMA. No More Actors. And yet it’s almost the only bloody choice; they’re practically the only people I know!” she continued saying she wants a family one day “Yes, I want babies. I don’t know about marriage. That’s probably quite a painfully millennial thing to say. But I do want to find a human that you’d want to create a family with”. Maybe when Game of Thrones comes to an end in 2019, the actress will have more time to settle down.
Emilia Clarke was single, after her breakup with Jai Courtney she created a NMA (no more actor) rule and currently trying to stick by it.
Emilia Clarke has made it no secret anymore that she is dating writer/director Charlie McDowell, their Insta post gave it away.
