With the fourth season of her hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" slated to premiere April 6th, Emilia Clarke pitched in on promotions by covering the April 2014 issue of Flare magazine.

The 26-year-old actress looked picture perfect in designer garbs from Burberry Prorsum and Dior for the Nino Muñoz-shot spread while opening up about everything from the show's new season to her embarrassing audition.

Highlights from Miss Clarke's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Flare!

On "Game of Thrones'" fourth season:
"The whole of season four is dark and really emotional. If you asked any of the actors about this season, they’d say, 'Oh no, my character’s got the best arc.'"

On her infamous casting call:
"I get there, and I’m all dressed up to the nines, wearing a nice outfit with heels. I walk into an auditorium that’s got 50 people from HBO. I’m nervous like you wouldn’t believe. I had a Diet Coke right before I walked in, so I was buzzing. I said hello to each of the 50 people individually and walked down the steps, then fell over walking down."

On her role in "Game of Thrones":
"After my last audition for Game of Thrones, they said, ‘Congratulations, princess.’ I was like, ‘Bye-bye, call centre.' [The] attention equals pressure, but everything, everything is still so new to me that I’m enjoying jumping on this bandwagon early and seeing how I respond to it. If you spend too much time wondering what you’re going to feel like in year five, you’re not going to feel anything in year one.”

On her approach to nude scenes :
"The aftermath was the thing that was harder to deal with. Going in to do my first press junket, that’s a hell of a lot scarier than being naked up on TV!"
