Latest Movie Hotties Headlines

Face Off: Emilia Clarke vs. Lauren Cohan

Oct. 21, 2013by: Droz

More folks were interested in petting pretty kitty Kat Dennings over her competition Elizabeth Gillies in last week's Face Off. I agree that Kat is ripe for petting, but I'd hate to leave Elizabeth neglected. As with most anything that pertains to multiple hotties, the more the better.

Just like seasons in the real world have changed, we're also experiencing that recurring cycle of endings and beginnings on TV. The last few months have seen a ton of shows end their run, some for just a season and some forever. Still, we can always take comfort in the fact that there's new stuff coming around. We've got a new season of The Walking Dead happening now, staring the lovely Lauren Cohan. Pretty soon that will be done and we'll be looking forward to a new season of Game of Thrones starring the also beautiful Emilia Clarke. These hotties star in incredibly popular cable shows where cinematic qualities, ample bloodshed and armies of the undead threatening to take over the world are the norm. They are also both unbelievably hot brunettes who also just happen to be British actresses playing killer bad-asses on American shows. It's no wonder they're as popular as they are, but which cable drama babe is hotter? Set your DVRs and vote below.

Beauty

Emilia has herself a kind of dual beauty. In her normal life she's a charming, outgoing, peach of a girl with a beautiful smile, a lovely head of brown hair and a sweet personality. Then she puts on the wig to play Daenerys Targaryen and becomes a different person. I don't know what it is about that blonde hair, but you'd hardly recognize her when she puts that thing on. That combined with Daenery's aloof intensity transforms Emilia completely. It's the best parts of cosmetics and performance producing a totally different person. I'm fascinated with them both.

There's little doubt Lauren is beautiful. She manages to look beautiful on a show that doesn't put a lot of emphasis on beautiful things. She looks beautiful covered in the blood of the undead and also when it looks like her character has been wearing the same clothes for days and probably doesn't smell too great. We know she's beautiful all cleaned up in a magazine spread. All that being said, I'm still just a little bit more keen on Emilia here. It's a narrow margin though.

Body

I think it was the first scene in the pilot episode of GoT when Emilia steps out of that giant tub, totally in the buff. It was instant proof of what a great show this was going to be and how big a star she and her fine ass were going to become. 3 years on and the promise of that moment has delivered and then some. I can't speak for you, but for me things just aren't complete in any new GoT season until Emilia takes it off. Considering all the things going in this show, that's saying something.

There's a surprising lack of skin on TWD. Skin that's not putrid and peeling from the bones of walkers anyway. Granted, it's basic cable so they can't get naked, but there's still some wiggle room there. I assume they're shooting their standards and practices wad with violence and sacrificing the sex part in the bargain. That means what we know of Lauren's body comes mostly from other shows and photo spreads she's done. That's okay though, because what we have is sufficient to show that Lauren has a fantastic body. Makes me hope they can clear out those zombies long enough to let Maggie get in some bikini sun bathing without fear of being devoured alive.

Hotness

Again, it comes down to Emilia and her GoT alter ego. In real life Emilia's hotness sources from how much of a cutie pie she is. With that sweet as honey personality and English charm, she's one of the sexiest women I can think of. I'd probably do just about anything for her. Then you got her on GoT - powerful, principled, determined, ruthless. That also comes across as pretty damn hot. I'd do just about anything for the Mother of Dragons as well. Two different personalities, same result. Funny how that works.

Maggie on TWD ain't no pushover either. She's proved herself more than capable of putting blunt objects through the skulls of undead, which brings a certain degree of hotness all its own. Plus, like Daenerys, she stands by her man. Gotta appreciate that. In real life, Lauren is a sweetie like Emilia, with the same charm and soothing British accent. She can also make love to the camera, as you can see above. That's something she doesn't get to do very often on TWD, which adds even more significance to her photo spreads.

Shows

What's GoT got? Sword fights, medieval times, castles, beheadings, plot twists, naked women, lots of sex with naked women, explosions, war, fire-breathing dragons, zombies, dwarves. I mean honestly, what the hell else could you ask for?

Yeah, TWD is missing some of the stuff over in Emilia's column, but they more than make up for it in gore and style. And just like with GoT, you never know who's going to buy it from season to season. I sure hope they don't go the normal horror route and off the people who've had sex, like Maggie and Glenn have. Now that they're a solid couple, I suspect one or both of them is ripe for a fall. The show is already hinting that something nasty is coming down the pipe for this group. It's really going to suck if Maggie is included in that.

Emilia

Two hotties with so many attributes in common produce yet another tough choice for me. Gotta go with Emilia though. Something about her is always going to stand out in my eyes.

Just one man's opinion. What are your thoughts?

Emilia Clarke

Less ties IMO. Emilia takes hotness and show for me. I love TWD and both shows are ratings juggernauts but no other show even comes close for me next to GoT. That and Emilia's first pic under Beauty alone crushes all of Lauren's. I do think Lauren is great though just not next to Emilia.

Lauren Cohan is very hot, but to me she wouldn't have come close to anything with Emilia. I'm surprised she even tied on anything, especially between shows.

I'd go for either one. Or both. So I can't complain here. They're both winners to me. Two of the hottest women on TV right now.

This ones a hard one but I think I'll go with Cohan. Also Walking dead is a good show but it comes to the Game of Thrones its not even in the same leauge.

Definitely disagreed. Cohan landslides everything...... except show. Cohan's individual performance is miles better than Clarke's, but the rest of Clarke's show is million times better than the rest of Cohan's

@Soloist, Clarke's character is fucking terrible. She either does nothing or does the yell-cry sound that is like nails on a chalk board. She disappears in every scene and is only perceived as special in the narrative because of the way all the characters talk about and act toward her. It's like they are acting alongside one of those tennis balls on a string so they can CGI something more interesting later. Cohan on the other hand was one of the only reasons I even finished season 3 of The

Cohan on the other hand was one of the only reasons I even finished season 3 of The Walking Dead. She brings some nuance and restraint to a show that too often wears its heart on its sleeve. Her restraint-crying through gritted teeth after the death of Lori was SO much more compelling than Rick's stupid looking freakout.

Agreed. Clarke overracts so badly and her character is kind of a whiny bitch. Lauren/Maggie >>>>>>

Cohan's individual performance is not miles better than Clarke. It's the other way around. Plus, Clarke's character is soooo much better than Cohan's.

Emilia Clarke is hands down the winner here, she is ridiculously sexy and so very beautiful, not to mention we have seen her naked multiple times, so with all that in mind, Emilia definitely wins. Lauren is hot, there is no doubting that, but Emilia is on a whole different level of hot, and without seeing Lauren naked, we really can't be sure how hot she really is. When it comes to Emilia, we have seen those amazing boobs, and her perfect ass, as well as her flawless body. So yeah again, Emilia

Emilia is very pretty, but she is like the only woman who is a natural brunette that I prefer as blonde. Ger GOT hair gives her this added ethereal beauty for sure. Cohen is just a natural beauty all around. I go with Cohen.

No way

Lauren should have had a check in each box, making her AT LEAST tie. Although I think she's best overall.

Emilia

Agreed on Emilia in the final outcome, but I think you have way too many ties overall. It doesn't seem like you're comparing the girls against each other, but rather deciding individually on whether they are hot or not. For example: Shows. Yes, both GoT and TWD are great shows. But if you could only ever watch one (and never see the other one ever again) which would you choose?

Both are very attractive, I honestly would give it a tie between both. Emilia has a mix of sweetness and sex appeal; Lauren Cohan is more straight-up hot. Then again, Emilia has done more nudity. Don't make us choose dammit! Also, either woman would make a great Lara Croft at different points in her career.

Emilia Clarke

Khaleesi takes it by a landslide. And it pains me to say it because I think that Lauren Cohan is one of the best things about that show and is super hot too. But Emilia is a real beauty that has a terrific body as well. She wins easily in beauty and just a bit in hotness, it's a tie in body and she dominates Cohan in terms of show quality. Game of Thrones is artistically in a whole other league than Walking Dead, there's no cpmparison here.
