Emilia Clarke broke the internet yesterday by dying her platinum blonde – going full Khaleesi for Game of Thrones Season 8. She revealed today by posting another selfie that she feels closer to her character of Daenerys Targaryen by dying her hair platinum blonde.
Alluding to her role as ‘mother of dragons’, the 30-year-old actress joked that her image overhaul had ‘trebled’ her desire to be ‘near fire-breathing creatures’.
Showcasing her golden chop in a smiling Instagram selfie on Wednesday, Emilia looked chic in a simple red sweater. She captioned the photo: ‘The experiment continues. My IQ has stayed around average and my need to be near fire breathing creatures and uncomfortable seats made of iron has trebled.’
It seems like Clarke wants to go all in for Game of Thrones Season 8, the filming of which begins in October. We all saw Emilia and Kit Harington get all hot and heavy in Game of Thrones Season Finale.
Jon sneaked into her quarters on a Targaryen boat and his lovestruck queen was too quick to invite him inside, resulting in the pair making love while at sea (the famous boatsex)- to the delight of fans.
Speaking in a special behind-the-scenes commentary for the show, Emilia said ‘gagging‘ was her first reaction to the Jon Snow and Daenerys having sex – while Kit acknowledged the ‘weird’ encounter had been inevitable after weeks of building romance.
Kit said: ‘I think they both know it’s wrong. I think they both know it’s going to cause problems. But it’s that thing, when you suddenly feel that deeply about someone and you go through these events together, it’s like a runaway train.’
‘I think it’s an inevitability from about halfway through the season that Jon and Daenerys will fall into bed together. You can’t stop it from happening.‘
