When it comes to Game Of Thrones, we all have our favorite characters that we hope will reign supreme on the Iron Throne.
And with the body count steadily rising — specifically for the ill-fated male characters — it's looking like one of the fantasy series' powerful female characters has the best chance of ruling Westeros!
The upcoming Season 6 of the HBO hit continues to focus on its surviving ladies with new stunning character portraits featured in Entertainment Weekly!
Sure, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) has the biggest claim to the throne, but is it really her destiny to take the throne?

What about Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) or Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), who are separately learning the art of combat and politics.
Or let's not forget about Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), who has her own seductive skillset that has proven to be very advantageous!
One thing's for sure, Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) needs to GTFO — that's where hopefully Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) comes in!
Ch-ch-check out the beautiful and powerful character portraits (below) and see what the actresses have to say about their characters for the upcoming season!
Maisie on Arya Stark:
"Last season people asked: 'Is she dead?' I'm all, 'No, she's blind.' It's too easy to kill her. If there's one thing we've learned from Game of Thrones it's that death is the easy way out."
Natalie on Margaery Tyrell:
"We've seen Margaery in a lot of sticky situations, but she's never been out of her depth before."
Sophie on Sansa Stark:
"This is the season I'm most excited for. Sansa's coming into her own and standing up for herself."
Gwendoline on Brienne of Tarth:
"Brienne is so unique and unconventional and so strong, and I love the writing hasn't allowed her to just rest there."
Lena on Cersei Lannister:
"She really has nothing to lose and she has everything to gain from the horrible position she finds herself in."
Emilia on Daenerys Targaryen:
"She's learning the last lesson she needs to learn. There's just few remnants of being a human being she's shaking off."
