It’s very hard to tell Emilia Clarke and her Game of Thrones body double apart

Separated at birth?

That is the whole point of a body double after all, but this is still uncanny…

Game of Thrones fans will know that the fatality rate in the show is quite high, so it helps your chances of increasing your life expectancy if there are two of you around.

There is (unfortunately) no clone of Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) in Game of Thrones.

But you’d be forgiven for thinking there is when setting eyes upon her body double, played by 18-year old model Rosie Mac.

Rosie, who’s been brought on board for Season Five of the wildly popular show, has been taking some pictures from the set and one in particular illustrates the striking resemblance she bears to the Mother of Dragons.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Rosie throughout this season; no more than Emilia herself, she’s pretty Khal-eesi on the eye.

Okay, we’ll get our coats…
