Thanks to her starring role on Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke is undoubtedly a household name.

But, did you know that she could have been even bigger had she not turned down the role of Ana in 50 Shades of Grey?

That's right!

Daenerys herself was up for Dakota Johnson's part in the S&M franchise, but ultimately decided against it. Her reason why?

She had already bared it all on TV and on stage in Breakfast at Tiffany's on Broadway, so she didn't want to add the silver screen to the list of mediums in which she'd been completely naked.

The 28-year-old says she's not against nude scenes, she just didn't want to get typecast as that kind of actress.

Makes sense to us!

Plus, it's not like she needs the career boost. In addition to starring on the HBO drama, Emilia is about to be in Terminator: Genisys opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger… so that's kind of a big deal.

What do U think?

Would U have preferred to see Emilia with Jamie Dornan over Dakota?
