With the fourth season of her hit series "Game of Thrones" already underway, Emilia Clarke covers the May 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine.

The 26-year-old actress looked beautiful in designer duds from Louis Vuitton for the Cedric Buchet photo shoot while opening up about everything from auditioning for the HBO role to her future career and family plans.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Clarke's interview. For more, be sure to visit Marie Claire!

On her audition:
"I called in sick to my catering job and Wikipedia-ed the crap out of it. To be employed by HBO, I was like, 'I can die now.'"

On her Most Desirable Woman title:
"I'm sure it was some member of my family clicking a thousand times. Maybe one of those men could ask me out on a date."

On her time away from the set:
"I get to go home and walk the dog and no one really cares in the most glorious way. They're more intrigued about whether people are picking up the dog muck from the path."

On her goals:
"Personally, I’d like as many children as I can pop out, I reckon. You come from a happy family; you want to create a happy family. And in the same breath, I’d like to be on stage at England’s National Theatre, doing Miller and Chekhov. Give me a Sam Mendes/Tennessee Williams combination - that would be glorious. And to be making some Oscar-worthy movies with Scorsese. I’m always looking for the hard road. That way, you remain interested and interesting. Hopefully."
