    Emilia Clarke does portray a mother to three feisty dragons on Game of Thrones, but does she have any plans to have some children of her own in the not-so-distant future?

    The British actress, along with Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen appear on their own covers for Marie Clarie's Hollywood's "Fresh Faces" May issue.

    Clarke, who looks radiant in a gold sequinned frock on the glossy magazine, opens up about her future plans and goals.

    "Personally, I'd like as many children as I can pop out, I reckon," the actress, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO hit series, reveals. "You come from a happy family; you want to create a happy family."

    But Clarke also has some career ambitions, being "on stage at England's National Theatre, doing Miller and Chekhov," to name a few.

    "Give me a Sam Mendes/Tennessee Williams combination—that would be glorious," the 26-year-old admitted. "And to be making some Oscar-worthy movies with [Martin] Scorsese. I'm always looking for the hard road. That way, you remain interested and interesting. Hopefully."

    Fellow cover girl Fanning shared her personal style and how she likes to dress her age.

    "You don't want to look too old when you're not, or too young when you're not," the 16-year-old blond beauty revealed.

    A newly blond Mara dished about ditching her red locks and the feeling of relief after changing up her hair color.

    "I felt relieved getting rid of red—people in my family were saying, ‘Red hair is your identity—you'll ruin it!' the House of Cards actress explains. "But I'm an actor. I'd shave my head if the part called for it. I love morphing into someone different; it makes you wear makeup differently."

    The issue hits newsstands on April 22.
