For filming the final season of Game of Thrones, star Emilia Clarke is embracing her inner Targaryen.
The English actress, who normally has dark brown hair, has played Daenerys under a carefully manicured “Khaleesi Wig” on the series for seven seasons (a wig expertly maintained by GoT‘s six-time Emmy-nominated hairstyling team). But while preparing to shoot the HBO sensation’s final episodes, Clarke has finally opted for a full blonde dye job.
Unless the Mother of Dragons gets a much shorter haircut in the season 8 premiere to ready for her climactic face off against the Night King, however, we suspect the actresses will still sport a wig (or at least plenty of extensions) on the show itself.
