What do Tim Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Gillian Anderson, Priyanka Chopra, and your friend from high school who still plays GoldenEye on a daily basis have in common? They’re all interested in being James (Jane) Bond. So is fiery Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, but she has something they don’t: dragons.

Clarke recently said that she has “a lot of unrealized dreams,” like that she “would love to play Jane Bond.” And who would her Bond boy be? “My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it.” Now, this doesn’t mean Clarke, who showed off her action movie chops in Terminator Genisys, is about to retire her Thrones blonde wig with a black-and-white tuxedo — if someone were to ask if you wanted to play James Bond, you’d say “of course,” too — but it’s still fun to imagine Daenerys as 007.

“My name is Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.” Actually, that sounds tedious. Never mind.
