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 Although her role on the HBO hit, which kicked off in 2011, is inarguably what made her a star, she originally made her screen debut back in 2009.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.

Pottery Barn Is Launching a Friends-Inspired Furniture Line That Includes Rachel’s Iconic Apothecary Table

To celebrate this fall’s 25th anniversary of the premiere of Friends in 1994, Pottery Barn is releasing a line of furniture inspired by the beloved NBC sitcom, Deadline reports.

The collection will feature accessories, furniture, and tabletop items, including Central Perk mugs. One highlight is a replica of the apothecary table that made a name for apothecary tables everywhere with its spotlight-stealing performance in the season 6 episode “The One with the Apothecary Table.” In it, Rachel purchases an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and, when she finds out Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, tells her the table is an antique from the “days of yore.” It gets more complicated (and hilarious) from there.

According to BuzzFeed, the episode was actually part of a product placement deal with Pottery Barn, and Entertainment Weekly even ranked it first on their “Best Product Placement” list for Friends.

You can shop the collection beginning on July 30, with prices starting at $12.50. If you’re a diehard Friends fanatic looking to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a way that Rachel Green would be proud of, you can also enter Pottery Barn’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with a $1000 shopping spree to Pottery Barn and a Warner Bros. Studio Deluxe Tour which includes, of course, a visit to the Central Perk set.

And, if you haven’t seen “The One with the Apothecary Table,” you can watch it on Netflix before Friends leaves for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max in 2020.
