Is Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke the sexiest woman alive? Esquire magazine sure seems to think so. They've bestowed the actress with this title, and have even convinced her to bare all for their latest issue. This has resulted in a photo shoot that might just be too hot to handle. It's SFW, but barely!

Emilia Clarke wasn't quite able to push the quasi-reboot/sequel Terminator Genisys into blockbuster territory this summer, as the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi thriller crashed and burned on American shores. But it did go onto rack up some impressive numbers in China, where Emilia Clarke is all the rage. She is perhaps best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones. And it's her very presence on this hit HBO series that won her the title of Sexiest Woman Alive 2015.

While some will certainly argue, the title seems to fit Emilia Clarke, a very talented actress who has captured the attention of the world. And she has the role of Daenerys Targaryen to thank for that. About landing the character, she had this to say.

"[My] agent calls me up and says, 'Did you ever go up for Game of Thrones?' My agent told the casting director, 'I know that the breakdown for this character is tall and willowy and blonde. I know she's short and round and brown, but I'd like you to see her.' I had two scenes which told me nothing and not very much time in which to read all those [George R. R. Martin] books. So I did what every good actor does and Wikipedia'd the living crap out of it."

We've included some of the Esquire photos below, which find the actress going nude. Though, a pesky sheet and blanket continuously get in the way. Emilia Clarke hasn't only been bestowed with the title of Sexiest Woman Alive in 2015, she is also accepting the Woman of the Year award from GQ magazine next week.

Terminator Genisys was supposed to get two sequels, but those are currently on hold as Paramount tries to reconfigure the franchise into something fans want. At that, Emilia Clarke will likely return to reprise her iconic role as Sarah Connor at least two more times, but it isn't known when that may happen. She is currently shooting Game of Thrones Season 6, with /game-thrones-season-6-maisie-williams/production taking place in various locations throughout the world.
