Emilia Clarke doesn’t need a Dothraki dress and a trio of dragons to get sexy. The “Game of Thrones” star doffed her blonde Daenerys Targaryen wig — and her clothes — to talk about how often fans don’t recognize her as one of the lead characters in the HBO fantasy series with GQ.
“It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me. These HBO events, where I’ll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they’re like, Oh s**t! That’s what you do! — they think I’m some crazy Brit who snuck her way into a Hollywood party,” she says.
Clarke filmed Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” filming in Morocco, and she says she’s begged the producers of the show to let her wear Daenerys’ wig out at night. “They insist there’s no way. They won’t let me go partying with it on! I would be killed on the spot,” she says. “It’s silly to say, but when I take the wig off at the end of the day, I’m rather disappointed when I look in the mirror.”
Fortunately that would allow her to covertly infiltrate her favorite shows on television without being noticed. “I’d give my right arm to be, like, a random extra on ‘Girls,’ just to walk past one of the scenarios,” Clarke says. “I’d love that more than anything. Or, like, a meth head on ‘Breaking Bad.’ It’d be like Where’s Wally?! Only, again, without the wig, they wouldn’t recognize me.” We totally would pay money to see that.
