This is perhaps the most beautiful image of Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Stormborn that we’ve seen yet. It’s true that her eyes really don’t seem tinted towards purple, but the wig really works here. She’s quite lovely, isn’t she? As you watch these brief clips, you can get the sense of the early Daenerys in Clarke’s portrayal: cowed and fearful and very young. No wonder Illyrio will later say that he did not really think much of her.
