Emilia Clarke doesn't just command three fire-breathing dragons — she also commands attention on the red carpet. Radiant in a rose-gold gown by Calvin Klein Collection designed by Francisco Costa and Pomellato gold jewelry at the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18, the Game of Thrones beauty turned lots of heads — one of which belonged to Dallas Buyers Club nominee Jared Leto.

The two were introduced by Giuliana Rancic after Clarke's red carpet interview. "I haven't seen your show, but I know people are obsessed with it and say it's absolutely amazing," he said, wrapping her in a big hug like they were old friends. 

"See, I know your band, and I've seen your movie," she replied. Then, as she turned to say goodbye, Leto pulled her closer and said he wasn't quite done with her yet.

"I haven't finished here. There's work yet to be done," he quipped, fixing a sexy gaze on the gorgeous HBO actress. "Have you looked into her eyes? I mean, they're absolutely insane."

Sensing chemistry between the two, Rancic got the camera crew to zoom in on Clarke's face. "I'm blushing!" the GOT standout said, laughing.

Prior to the cute exchange, Clarke chatted with Rancic about her dark chestnut hair — a marked contrast from the white-blonde locks she sports on Game of Thrones. "I've never been blonde [in real life]," she confessed, citing a bad experience with highlights when she was 12.

Asked whether she has more fun as a blonde or as a brunette, Clarke laughed. "Well, I don't think my character is the best example of blondes having fun, so I think I have more fun," she quipped.
