Emilia Clarke Finally Goes Blonde for 'Game of Thrones' Final Season
It looks like Emilia Clarke has finally embraced her inner Targaryen. She has a natural dark brown hair, but she has gone true blonde just before the production for the right and final season of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones.
She took to her Instagram account on Tuesday to share a pic of her newly-dyed hair.
'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,' Emilia captioned the photo.
Emilia credited Kev Alexander and Candice Banks, who are both working as hairstyling team on Game of Thrones, for the new look.
'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 eight glorious years) for at long last making this magical moment a reality,' Emilia wrote.
She added the hashtags #khaleesikicksoff, #gameofthrones, and #cominghomeneverfeltsogood.
The English actress has been wearing a blonde wig for her role as Daenerys Targaryen since the very first season of the show.
Filming for the final season will begin next month, and it could go on until as late as August 2018.
In other words, we probably will not get to see the final season of Game of Thrones sooner than 2019.
'Our production people are trying to figure out a timeline for the shoot and how much time the special effects take,' HBO's president of programming Casey Bloys recently just told The Hollywood Reporter.
He also confessed that they planned to shoot multiple versions of the ending of season 8 to avoid any leaks.
'I know in 'Game of Thrones,' the ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens,' Bloys said, and The Morning Call quoted him.
He added, 'You have to do that on a long show. Because when you are shooting something, people know. So they are going to shoot multiple versions so that there is no real definitive answer until the end.'
