Emilia Clarke's Brother Is A Camera Assistant On Game Of Thrones, Which Is Awkward
It's possible to look at anything from a glass half full or a glass half empty perspective.
If you shrink your favourite t-shirt in the washing machine, you'll never have to wash it again - but you have also lost your favourite t-shirt. If you have the best day of your life that's bloody great, but it also means things can only really get worse from there.
The glass half full/half empty contrast must be particularly stark for Emilia Clarke's brother when he assesses his professional accomplishments.
Glass half empty - he gets paid to film his sister having sex.
... On paper the latter doesn't sound great, but I'd go as far as to say this is probably the very best way in which you could make a living by filming your sister having sex.
However, this is undoubtedly a very awkward situation for both him and Emilia. Fortunately, it seems as though the crew for the show is big enough that they can sort of work around each other, as it were.

Discussing the fittingly incestuous arrangement on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Clarke (the on camera one, not the behind camera one) said: "Yeah, there's some days when he's like 'Oh I'll swing by', 'cos he's literally like in the next unit that's filming next door, and I'm like 'No it's good! You can stay there.'"
It would be interesting to know what the arrangement is though when it comes to watching the show itself. Surely, if you've been a part of the camera crew for a project as massive as Game of Thrones, you're gonna want to see the end result? But also surely, you don't want to watch your sister shagging?
The 32-year-old actor's depiction of Daenerys Targaryen has been mimicked to varying degrees of quality across the globe.
At the poor end of the scale is a statue at a museum in Dublin, which basically looks nothing like her... Seriously, it's almost as bad as that Cristiano Ronaldo one. By contrast, an Italian student is an actual real-life lookalike who will make you look twice... if you happen to walk past her, and she happens to be dressed like the Mother of Dragons.
