You've seen her fly dragons and lead armies on Game of Thrones. Is there anything Emilia Clarke can't do? Probably not. And with Daniel Craig officially retiring his license to kill, the golden girl of Westeros and Essos wants her chance to play the woman with the golden gun. That's right, she wants to be Bond. Jane Bond.
The 29-year-old actress first brought up her dream on Sunday in an interview with the Daily Star:
“I have a lot of unrealized dreams. I would love to play Jane Bond."
Clarke didn't stop there. She's got just the man in mind who could make history as the first ever Bond Boy:
"My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it.”
Solid choice, Emilia. Solid choice.
I can see it now...
But Emilia Clarke isn't the only badass female that wants to be #JaneBond. The Twitterverse is exploding with suggestions, and X-Files star Gillian Anderson admits she'd like to take a crack at playing the iconic secret agent.
