Most people know Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, the badass Mother of Dragons on Game of Thrones. Although her role on the HBO hit, which kicked off in 2011, is inarguably what made her a star, she originally made her screen debut back in 2009.

Since then, Clarke has acted in various TV shows and movies (not to mention one memorable commercial for the Samaritans charity), signed endorsement deals, and more. So how much is she actually worth?

According to CheatSheet, the 32-year-old actress has an impressive net worth of $13 million.

Her biggest payday, of course, comes from Game of Thrones, for which she'll earn a salary of $500,000 per episode for the upcoming final season. Although there are only six episodes in the season, she's still making off with a pretty $3 million. Clarke and fellow GOT star Lena Headey (who plays Cersei Lannister) reportedly make the same amount as their male co-stars: Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau—making them HBO's highest-paid actors.

Clarke's acting career began in the theater during school, and she landed her first TV role in 2009 with one episode of the British series Doctors. She also starred in the 2009 SYFY film Triassic Attack. By 2010, she was cast as Daenerys Targaryen, a role that would eventually earn her three Emmy nominations (and counting).

During her time on Game of Thrones, Clarke has also built up an exciting resume with other projects. In 2015, she played Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys, and in 2016, she starred in the film Me Before You. Most impressively, she joined the Star Wars franchise, playing Qi'ra in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story. In 2019, she'll team up with Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding for Paul Feig's upcoming comedy, Last Christmas.

In addition to leading roles, Clarke has also voiced characters on Futurama and Robot Chicken. She is also currently the face of Dolce & Gabbana's "The One" fragrance.

Netflix's Stranger Things Season 3 Video Is Full of Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Stranger Things's third season was full of many surprising twists and turns, not to mention some awkward teen romances. While the gruesome Mind Flayer and the evil Russians were no doubt terrifying, the show kept its sweet touch of nostalgia due mainly to the fact that the Hawkins gang is now smack-dab in the middle of the 1980s.

It doesn’t take a keen eye to see many of the series's '80s references, particularly in the latest season. With scenes taking place at the new mall, references from the decade—including Hot Dog on a Stick, Sam Goody, and Back to the Future—are all part of the setting. However, creators Ross and Matt Duffer wanted to pay true homage to the decade, and thus left Easter eggs throughout the season that you likely missed.

Luckily for us, as BGR reports, Netflix has just released a video explaining the hidden references (with the New Coke debate, Mrs. Wheeler’s erotica novel, and Hopper’s Tom Selleck-inspired Hawaiian shirt among some of our favorites).

Check out the full video above and see what you missed!

Disney's Lady and the Tramp Remake Will Star a Mixed-Breed Rescue Dog Named Monte

Following the success of The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp will be the next classic Disney movie to be revamped in 2019. And while most of Disney's live-action remakes boast star-studded casts, the lead in this upcoming film is totally unknown. That's because Monte, a mixed-breed dog from Phoenix, Arizona, spent his pre-Hollywood days living in animal shelters.

As AZ Central reports, Monte will make his film debut as Tramp when Lady and the Tramp releases alongside the launch of Disney+, the company's upcoming streaming service, on November 12. In the original 1955 animated movie, Tramp was portrayed as a mutt who lived on the streets, so instead of looking for a purebred dog to portray the character, producers stayed faithful to the source material.

Monte lived in a New Mexico animal shelter before transferring to HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix. When the filmmakers went there in search of a star for their movie, he instantly won them over. Like Tramp, Monte is a mixed-breed dog, but the shelter doesn't know exactly what his background is, other than being part terrier. Despite his scrappy appearance, Monte is very well-behaved. He knows how to sit, walk on a leash, and he's friendly with everyone he meets, according to the shelter.

The Lady and the Tramp crew adopted Monte in April 2018, and earlier this month, Disney released the first promotional image of him for the film. It features Monte snuggling up with his co-star, Rose, who plays Lady. True to the original, Lady is portrayed by a purebred cocker spaniel. Though you likely don't recognize the dogs on the poster, you may have heard of the voice actors who will bring them to life: Justin Theroux is playing Tramp and Tessa Thompson is Lady.
