Emilia Clarke has taken all fans by surprise with a sudden change in her looks. This seems a bit suspicious, so all Game of Thrones enthusiasts have started making speculations on what this could mean for the fate of her character. They suspect the show will display a sudden twist of events, requiring Daenerys to switch from a long mane to shorter locks.
Emilia Clarke made a drastic change of looks
Emilia Clarke is a natural brunette and, for the portrayal of her beloved character Daenerys Targaryen, she had to wear a platinum blonde wig. This week, she surprised everybody with an Instagram photo, showing her freshly dyed hair in a shade suspiciously close to the one worn by her character.
Until now, the producers of the show didn’t ask Clarke to dye her hair, and the wig worked just fine. Suddenly, they seem to have allowed the actress to change her hair color and fit her character. However, all the chances are that they were the ones who asked her to do it. This might mean Daenerys will give up her braided locks and, instead, will display a much shorter hair.
What does this mean for the fate of Daenerys?
As the show progressed, Daenerys evolved from the long flowing hair to the intricate braids which appeared after her triumph over the Lannisters. This seems to be in accordance with the Dothraki tradition, which allowed warriors to display their victories through the length of their hair.
However, Emilia Clarke is sporting a pixie hairstyle, with no signs of luxurious locks. Could this mean Daenerys will be defeated in Season 8? This might also be a reference to Cersei Lannister, who became a true Mad Queen shortly after she had her hair cut, and had to go on the embarrassing Walk of Atonement.
Others say the short hair might come after Daenerys finds out about the true origin of Jon Snow, and his legitimate claim to the Iron Throne. However, these are only speculations, which makes the suspense even bigger, and the wait until the last season harder to bear.
