Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will never be able to audition for a musical because she's still scarred by her first try-out when she was 10.
The actress, who was recently voted 2014's Most Desirable Woman in an online poll, recalls fighting for a role in a London play as a child.
She says, "I was learning a folk song in school about a donkey, so I decided to sing that. They said, 'Do you know anything more current?' I then gave them my best rendition of the Spice Girls, complete with dance moves. "That's where my musical career ended."
"It made me realise that I wasn't quite ready."
"I think my parents were trying to give me a healthy dose of realism early on".
Game of Thrones Season 4 starts in the US on April 6th.
