Worldwide renowned for what may be the main role of her acting career so far, the Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke recently scores a new luxury home in Los Angeles. The $4.6 million mansion is 2,800-sq-ft of radiant sunniness, counting also with 19ft ceilings adorned with books, a swimming pool, and a giant walk-in closet. Today, The Most Expensive Homes will show you why the Emilia Clarke’s new home rules the luxury real estate market!
When she is not with her unbeatable dragons, fighting — and winning! — her battles, freeing slaves around the world, or ruling Dragonstone, Emilia Clarke may be at her new Venice Beach pad. According to Trulia, the British actress spent $4.64 million on approximately 2,800 square feet of space in the trendy, Silicon Beach luxury neighborhood.
Counting with an open kitchen with custom wood cabinets and a marble backsplash, and a large island, the 2,800-sq-ft of radiant sunniness mansion has also a floor-to-almost-ceiling bookcase — characteristic that would be approved by GoT author George R. R. Martin for sure!
The master bedroom has a wall of windows that look out on the pool and garden, as well as a giant walk-in closet and a very serene master bath. Plus the two-bedroom, three-bathroom house has patios and a 30-foot swimming pool in the landscaped outdoor space that runs along the side of the house.
In case you have been out of this planet in recent times and are completely unaware of the cultural phenomenon worldwide known as Game of Thrones, a quick Google search on it might answer almost all the question. But since TMEH‘s editors love making our readers’ lives easier, here is a quick review of the GoT universe.
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss based on George R.R. Martin‘s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts, and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’
Based on the storylines of A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones is set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm’s noble families for the Iron Throne, while other families fight for independence from it. It opens with additional threats in the icy North and Essos in the east. It is filmed in Belfast and elsewhere in the United Kingdom, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, Spain, and the United States.
The series is generally praised for what is perceived as a sort of medieval realism. George R.R. Martin set out to make the story feel more like historical fiction than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters, believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre. Martin has stated that “the true horrors of human history derive not from orcs and Dark Lords, but from ourselves.” Main characters are regularly killed off, and this has been credited with developing tension among viewers. The series also reflects the substantial death rates in war.
Although the first season is a faithful adaptation of the novel, later seasons have significant changes. According to David Benioff, the show is “about adapting the series as a whole and following the map, George laid out for us and hitting the major milestones, but not necessarily each of the stops along the way”.
