It may surprise Game of Thrones fans to know that Emilia Clarke is actually a brunette, and her seven-season stint as the iconic Daenarys Targaryen is actually aided by a blonde wig. This won’t be true for the eighth and final season, as Emilia has made the dramatic transition to blonde.
Sharing the new look, created on set, with her 13.5 million Instagram followers, Emilia praised the show’s styling team for creating the new bold colour change and for their amazing work on her wigs over the past seven years. It’s safe to say her followers were all in on the new look, with almost two million favourites at the time of writing.
Based on her seven year transformation to platinum and it’s role in making her feel like the Mother of Dragons, it’s no wonder Emilia was looking for a more permanent blonde change. “It’s silly to say, but when I take the wig off at the end of the day, I’m rather disappointed when I look in the mirror,” she remarked to GQ in 2013.
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
There’ll be no more disappointment and maybe even more clients jumping on the platinum trend now that Emilia’s Khaleesi hair is here to stay.
