In the wake of playing Daenerys Targaryen for seven seasons, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has started her genuine change into the Mother of Dragons. On Tuesday (September 19), she flaunted her new blonde hair on Instagram. Dany’s bleach blonde locks are practically as popular as her three — heartbroken, two — fire-breathing mythical beasts.
“AAAAHHHHHHH SHHHHIIIII******,” Clarke, a natural brunette, wrote. “I done did it. Mother of dragons meet Emilia. Emilia meet mother of dragons. If you squint just so you might never know.”
Can you tell she’s really, really stoked about her new ‘do? She also thanked her stylists for “making this magical moment a reality.”
AAAAHHHHHHH SHHHHIIIII****** 🤢 I done did it. Mother of dragons meet Emilia. Emilia meet mother of dragons. If you squint just so you might never know. 🐉⚡️ All hail to the magnificence of @kevalexanderhair and @candicebanks74 the genius creators of ‘KHALEESI WIG’ (and not forgetting all the hair on game of thrones for 8 glorious years) for at long last making this magical moment a reality. 🙌🔥❤️🏆💃😎👌 #khaleesikicksoff #gameofthrones #cominghomeneverfeltsogood
Game of Thrones Season 8 reportedly begins filming in October, which could explain Clarke’s timing. But her natural hair is shorter than Dany’s, so even with the new color, she’d still need to wear a wig — unless an unexpected haircut is in the works for her character. Vanity Fair pointed out that in the books, Drogon burns Dany’s hair. Talk about a bad hair day.1 of 1
