Even the smallest of details can reveal a lot about a character when it comes to Game of Thrones, particularly when it comes to their hair. In an Instagram post on Monday, star Emilia Clarke shared a photo of herself behind the scenes, with one very important part of her costume was missing: her Daenerys wig. Even though she was still getting ready, Clarke was almost unrecognizable without the Mother of Dragons’s signature platinum blond braids.
“This is what it took not only to shoot ep 5 . . . but to watch it too! #🤯,” Clarke captioned the photo of herself wearing a bald cap and holding up a large bottle of Dom Perignon in celebration of the show’s penultimate episode. While Clarke is a true Khaleesi with or without her wig, we can definitely see now what a huge role Daenerys’s hair plays in defining her character.
