‘My need to be near fire-breathing creatures has trebled’: Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke Posts A Selfie On Instagram


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.

Anatomy of The Frozen Lake Battle- Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 featured ‘The Frozen Lake Battle’ where a group of twelve people go for a hunt of a dead wight far north beyond the wall.



The crew discusses the making of this amazing sequence.

Says D. B. Weiss, “It was a real back and forth about who would be on this mission, who wouldn’t be on this missionThe Dirty Dozen obviously came to mind. Everybody has a good reason to hate everybody else.” We see Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont, Gendry, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, The Hound and five other wildings go on this suicide mission to rescue a dead wight to show to Cersei that the threat is real.

Some of the sequence was shot in Iceland. The crew worked in cold conditions as hell. Most of the heavy-lifting of the sequence, was in Wolf Hill Quarry in Belfast. The crew had a very hard time trying to work out what a frozen lake looks like, and how they can achieve that. And that went from compacted quarry floor to putting concrete down, to nice, flat finish, and then there had to be hues of color that were added to that. Then they had to work out how the ice would look, trying to make that look three-dimensional, and as if it was transparent ice. They worked hard to make the frozen lake look real.

Says Kit Harrington, “I think there’s a sort of kick-bollocks scrambleness to filming out here where you, you have such limited daylight. And you have conditions which are like this or worse. It just gives it a sense of reality, you know.”

Remarks Emilia Clarke, “You know, the harder the challenge, the more I relish it. But this really, you’re like, “Can I just even maybe have, like, a screen with, like, clouds or something?” I’ve never flown on a dragon! And to just harness that power. I mean, can you even imagine?

In this sequence we got to see a wight polar bear, a dragon dying, hundreds and thousands of wights fighting with the Suicide Squad. I would say that the crew did an amazing job in filming this sequence.
