Cape Town - Emilia Clarke has finally taken the plunge and permanently adopted Daenerys Targaryen’s platinum-blonde locks – and Game of Thrones (GOT) fans couldn’t be happier.
The bubbly 30-year-old actress, who plays the Khaleesi on the hit HBO series, recently bleached her hair, emulating her character’s famous blonde tresses.
She documented her striking transformation on Instagram, joking about how she’s changed since becoming GOT’s Mother of Dragons.
“My IQ has stayed around average and my need to be near fire breathing creatures and uncomfortable seats made of iron has trebled,” she captioned the post.
In another Instagram post of her hair reveal, she thanked the GOT costume team for not only providing her with the wig she has worn for her character for the past eight years, but for aiding her in her full dark to icy blonde transformation.
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
For the past seven seasons of the show, Emilia has kept her natural dark locks and worn a blond wig when taking on her character.
The final season will only premiere late 2018 or 2019, which devoted fans of the series, based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy book series, have lamented as far too long to wait.
In the last episode of season 7, we saw Emilia’s character get hot and steamy with Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington.
For now, here’s a video of ‘Daenarys Targaryen’ rapping.
