Izzy Meikle-Small

  1. Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones, TV, 2011-2014.    So close and yet so far for the girl from Sussex.  After the auditions, Izzy was in the final two for the dainty Sansa Stark…in HBO’s smash-hit medieval series stemming from George RR Martin’s books on nine noble families battling for control of Westeros.   Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones, TV, 2011-2013.   Recruited after the pilot, Clarke became an immediate superstar as Daenerys Targaryens, milady of the dragons –  one named after Viserys, “cruel and weak and frightened, yet he was my brother still. My dragon will do what he could not”… in HBO’s colossus based  on George R R Martin’s fantasy novel series,  A Song of Ice and Fire, following the bloodthirsty family  battles for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. Shakespeare without the words.
