Emilia Clarke is best known for her role of Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's hit series, "Game of Thrones." More recently, she's been in the news for being reality TV celebrity Lauren Conrad's "girl crush." With her goofy Instagram pics that usually catch Emilia Clarke joking around, this under the cover cutie grabbed our attention and got us wondering who's actually been a part of her love life.

Emilia Clarke and Seth MacFarlane

Small wonder that Emilia Clarke favors funny men. Emilia Clarke and Seth McFarlane were reported to have started dating in 2012. They were spotted hanging out together in their daily lives but also seen at Hollywood shindigs such as the 2013 Golden Globes after party.

Emilia Clarke told UsMagazine that one of the perils of dating a celebrity was the general public offering her unsolicited opinions of who she should be dating.

In particular, this happened to her when she was dating Seth MacFarlane. However, Emilia Clarke and Seth MacFarlane soon parted ways.

Emilia Clarke and Cory Michael Smith

Emilia Clarke and Cory Michael Smith co-starred together on a broadway version of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and it seems that after working together, rumors of a relationship began to dog them. The two were spotted at a Vanity Fair Oscar party, chatting up co-celebrities and widely photographed at fashion shows and other glamorous events.

Still, considering the coverage of these two was minimal, we don't know what broke them up, but do know Emilia Clarke was soon seen solo again at promo events for Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington

Considering Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington have never gone public about having had a relationship, part of us thinks that this coupling could potentially be wishful thinking on the part of fans. However, the internet has always swirled with rumors about Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington dating.

It certainly doesn't help that they look particularly cute together in promotional photo shoots. Then again, there was this shot of them on one particular Rolling Stone shoot:

Me thinks fire and ice belong together.
