Emilia Clarke has ruled not only the Seven Kingdoms, but the actor is also conquering pop culture franchises with roles in Star Wars and, most recently, the MCU's Secret Invasion. But that isn’t all she has on her plate.

Clarke rose to become a household name after playing Daenerys Targaryen for eight seasons on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, for which she also received a Primetime Emmy nomination.

She then bolstered her career by taking roles in major franchises. Clarke appeared as a young Sarah Connor alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2015’s Terminator Genisys before taking on other sci-fi universes, picking up the role of Qi’ra in the Han Solo origin movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

With such an impressive career to date, many eyes are on Clarke and what she does next.

The project that is currently taking up Emilia Clarke’s attention is Marvel’s Secret Invasion, where she stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn.

Clarke’s debut role in the MCU has her playing the character of G’iah, the daughter of Mendelsohn’s Skrull Talos, who was previously introduced as a young child in Captain Marvel.
