There is no doubt that Game Of Thrones has hit a new level of popularity, with Emilia Clarke being selected as the most desirable woman. Clarke was picked as the top choice after a rigid electoral process that had over 1 million votes.
The list of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women in the world was just released, and she is also not the only member of the Game Of Thrones cast to make the list. The full list was compiled by Askmen.com users, and also included her co-stars Oona Chaplin and Rose Leslie.
Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show, which is set to begin its 4th season on April 6th.
In addition to being a star on one of the most popular shows on television, Clarke is also set to play Sarah Connor in the upcoming reboot of the Terminator series.
Joining Emilia Clarke in the top five are a couple of young actresses that most people will expect to see like Emma Watson, coming in at No. 5, and Jennifer Lawrence, No. 4. They appeared in two of the biggest film franchises of all time, and have both been looked at as a couple of the hottest actresses around since their roles as Hermione Granger and Katniss Everdeen, respectively.
Surprisingly, the two others who appear in the top five are not movie stars, and the average person probably has no idea who they are. Alison Brie, who has been seen in select television shows such as Mad Men, came in 2nd place, while model/actress Emily Ratajkowski is ranked third. It is also worth noting that Beyonce was left out of the top 10.
To think about Emilia Clarke as the most desirable woman may show that television has now become just as popular as film. Also interesting? The age of many women on the list.

The list will supposedly appeal to men of any age, but this year’s most desirable woman is only 26-years-old, and those that join her in the top five are even younger than her. Other youngsters such as Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus are also included on the list.
Although a select few veteran actresses such as Kate Winslet and Robin Wright are included on the long list of desirable women, many of the women that are included on the list are barely legal or are at least young enough to be the daughters of many of the men who are desiring them.
While the “honor” went to Jennifer Lawrence last year, this year’s most desirable woman has been voted on, and it’s Emilia Clarke’s year.
