Emilia Clarke is known as the 'dragon lady'

Emilia Clarke is known as the "dragon lady" at her local newsagents in north London.

The 28-year-old actress is always recognised when she goes into her local shop for some groceries by the staff who are fans of 'Game of Thrones' - in which she plays Daenerys Targaryen - and they affectionately refer to her as the blonde queen who controls three dragons.

Emilia said: "(When I can go in) they will say, 'Oh, hello, dragon lady.' " She added: "It's like, 'Oh, that's my face on a magazine... OK, morning, could I just have the milk, please?' "

Although she's very popular in her local shop, Emilia - who is believed to dating her 'Terminator Genisys' co-star Jai Courtney - doesn't get any attention when she out with her 'GoT' co-star Kit Harington who plays Jon Snow.

She said: "I'll be in the loo and hear these girls saying, 'I don't know who she is but that's Jon Snow!' You can't go anywhere without him being mobbed."
