The mother of dragons has a doppelgänger.

Rosie Mac, an actress, model and dancer, has been serving as Emilia Clarke's stand-in on this season of Game of Thrones, and the resemblance is truly striking.

Based in Marbella, Spain, 18-year-old Mac hails from Cornwall, England. Recently, she was featured in Irish TV personality Virginia Macari's debut bikini collection.

Game of Thrones: Watch Daenerys Trash Talk Everybody in the Kingdom

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes in a wheel."

So speaks Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in the latest promo for the return of Game on Thrones to HBO next month.

Along with Daenerys's vow to "break the wheel," the latest trailer promises lots of swordplay and a very scary, fire-breathing dragon. We also catch a glimpse of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) trying to rally the Wildlings.

Oh, and then there are those ominous warning signs that winter is most definitely coming.

Game of Thrones's Khaleesi vs. Singer Kelis: How to Tell Them Apart

Originally posted 05/30/2014 04:05PM

Thanks to the popularity of Game of Thrones, more people are naming their babies after Daenerys Targaryen than ever before. In 2013, more than twice as many parents chose to name their baby girls "Khaleesi" than chose its soundalike "Kelis," according to data from the Social Security Administration.

Which got us thinking: In ten years or so, parents are going to have a very hard time determining whether their children's new friends are named after a dragon queen from a fantasy series or a female rapper who was once married to Nas. So, future parents, here's a refresher on Kelis vs. Khaleesi. (And yes, we know "Khaleesi" is only a title. We'll have no complaining from book readers on this point.)

Game of Thrones: 5 Things We Love (Slash Are Obsessed With)

Originally posted 04/07/2013 04:20PM

HBO's Game of Thrones, now at the start of its third season, seems to have been weighted into a catapult and sent soaring through the air: What was already a massive hit has become a buzzed-about, addictive phenomenon.

The show is – as one says, of such epic productions – teeming with characters. It swarms with plots, subplots and side-plots. If you missed the first two seasons, you might be afraid to just jump in. Don't be.

Just remember that everyone's motive is essentially the same: Win the Iron Throne and control all the kingdoms. (Think of Jerry Seinfeld chasing down the marble rye, but there are hundred of Jerrys and only one loaf.)

Oh, and everyone wants to avoid being brutally slaughtered.

You'll be hooked fast enough, and you'll develop your own set of obsessions to anticipate each week. These are mine:
