Those of you who appreciate the impeccable combination of blood and boobs on television are probably down in the dumps about the season finale of GAME OF THRONES this Sunday, June 15h, 2014. Some fans have expressed a little grief over the fact that the show has squeezed so much of the story into 10 episodes, while others probably just can't wait to see who will be violently murdered in this weekend's finale. As someone who has hardly seen an episode of the series, those fans may not deem me worthy of stating any sort of comment about it whatsoever. So, instead of pretending to have something to say about THRONES that isn't mindless gibberish, let's just direct our attention to the program's primary source of eye-candy (or at least second to Peter Dinklage), Emilia Clarke!
Call me crazy, as most of you already (perhaps rightfully) have, but I didn't get what all the fuss was about when Emilia first came on the scene. She sort of resembled a grown up, English Miley Cyrus, and I thought there were plenty of other rising babes to be celebrated and praised in the world of television, or even just HBO at the time. Then I saw her naked... Now I'm a believer. And aside from her willingness to "drop trou" faster than a severed head, I've seen enough to be on board the bandwagon of dedicated followers who want to see Emilia in more motion pictures.
I'm aware that this subject is of great importance to most of our schmoes, but in all honesty, I just don't have much to say about it in regards to Emilia. Sure, her backside is nice, but it's in no way one of her stand-out features. And even though we've gotten more than we could grasp of Emilia's naked rear-end, I still feel as though she needs some work on her presentation skills. That said, it's not big enough of an issue to effect her overall grade.
Believe it, or don't believe it, but there's a lot that goes into analyzing my student bodies, especially when it comes to this department. On the one hand, if the student is obviously well-endowed, it isn't very hard to determine whether or not they'd be fun to snuggle with John & Yoko style. On the other, if a student is less top-heavy but still knows how to flaunt what she's got, that's a major turn-on, as well. One thing I will not tolerate as a professor, however, is shyness. I don't need to tell you that Clarke is many things, but shy isn't one of them. And on top of all that, her little Emilias in the flesh are straight-up heavenly.
I get what the casting directors are trying to do when it comes to selecting naked ladies to be featured on THRONES, hiring girls with more au naturale body types over practically flawless supermodels who've spent half their lives at the gym. It's a smart way to go on their part, but of course, this means Emilia has one of those body types, as well. Luckily for her, I dig that kind of thing, but every schmoe has his/her different tastes. Personally, she gets 3 thumbs up from this professor.
It goes without saying, GAME OF THRONES has done wonders for Emilia as an actress over the past four years. She got started with a couple made-for-tv-movie gigs, and soon enough, we'll be seeing even more of her face once TERMINATOR: GENESIS comes around, in which she will be playing Sarah Connor. Of course, she's still got a ways to go before general movie fans quit viewing her as the silver-headed Daenerys Targaryen, but I'd imagine Emilia will be on the fast track to superstardom once her career in film takes off.
Before I put Clarke to the test, I knew virtually nothing about her, so I had to do some research. If the info I'm picking up is correct, Emilia's a very intelligent woman. Not only can she sing, play piano, flute and guitar, but she's also fluent in French. She sometimes labels herself as a bit of an outcast, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The dumbest moment you could say Emilia's had is when she (supposedly) dated Seth MacFarlane, the man who's almost single-handedly destroying the artform of comedy. That aside, I have faith that Clarke's charm will turn non-believers around before you know it.
