Early career (2000–2010)
Clarke started to act in stage productions while attending school. She appeared in student productions of Twelfth Night and West Side Story while attending St Edward's School. After taking a sabbatical year, she was accepted into Drama Centre London. She also appeared in the 2009 production of Sense, co-produced by the theatre company Company of Angels and Drama Centre London. One of her first film roles was in Drop the Dog, a University of London student short film. She graduated from drama school in 2009. She worked at various non-acting jobs after graduating while auditioning for roles. She starred in two commercials for the charity Samaritans, portraying a domestic abuse victim. Her first credited television role was a bit part in a 2009 episode of the British soap opera Doctors. In early 2010, she was cast in her first professional film role, playing Savannah in the television film Triassic Attack. The film, released in November 2010 on the American network Syfy, received negative reviews. Despite the film reviews, she was named a "UK Star of Tomorrow" by the film magazine Screen International.
Game of Thrones (2011–2019)
Clarke was cast in her third professional role as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, based on the book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin in 2010. Daenerys is one of the last surviving members of House Targaryen who had ruled Westeros from the Iron Throne for nearly three hundred years prior to being ousted. Actress Tamzin Merchant was originally cast for the part of Daenerys. After the pilot episode was re-shot in early 2010, Merchant was replaced by Clarke. In an interview, Clarke stated that she did the funky chicken and robot dance during her audition. Show creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss said they chose Clarke "10 seconds after leaving the room". The show ran from April 2011 until May 2019, with Clarke portraying Daenerys throughout all eight seasons of the show.
She has received widespread praise for her portrayal of Daenerys, which traces an arc from frightened girl to empowered woman. Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe called her scenes "mesmerizing", adding that "Clarke doesn't have a lot of emotional variety to work with as Daenerys, aside from fierce determination, and yet she is riveting." Emily VanDerWerff for The A.V. Club commented on the difficulty of adapting such an evolution from page to screen, but concluded that Clarke "more than seal[s] the deal here." In 2017, she reportedly became one of the highest-paid actors on television, potentially earning £2 million per episode of Game of Thrones. In 2019 she said she had been uncomfortable acting nude in her first experience at age 23 on a large film set but had since become "a lot savvier" about what level of nudity is needed for a scene.
