Following the huge success of the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, a lot of relatively unknown stars have gone on to become household names all over the world. One such star, who has enjoyed huge success thanks to Game of Thrones, is the British actress Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen in the show.
As most of you may well know, Emilia Clarke is a natural brunette and has to wear the platinum blonde wig for the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. Well, while Emilia has admitted that there are certainly some challenges that come with wearing the wig, she has also admitted that it does give her a sense of power and energy.
Clarke was being interviewed by the Los Angeles Times when she told them, "The challenges are namely the physical aspects of being under the baking sun in a desert in Morocco with a wig on feeling very hot," she said before then going on to add, "Every night the wig comes off, you’re like, 'Aww.' I can feel my energy going."
Game of Thrones season four continues to air on HBO on Sunday evenings in the US, while the show then airs on Monday nights on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
As for her movie career, Emilia Clarke will be seen in the role of Sarah Connor for the planned film Terminator: Genesis, which also co-stars Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and, of course Arnold Schwarzenegger. Terminator: Genesis will be directed by Alan Taylor and will open on June 26, 2015 in the UK, before then hitting the big screen in the US on July 1, 2015.
