Emilia Clarke has dyed her hair peroxide blonde for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game Of Thrones after years of wearing a wig.

The British actress, who usually wears a white-blonde hair piece for her part in the hit fantasy series, unveiled her new look to her 13.4 million Instagram followers.

Pulling a stunned face and showing off her bleached mane, natural brunette Clarke wrote: “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.”

“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 8 glorious years) for at long last making this magical moment a reality.”

She added hashtags including “#khaleesikicksoff” and “#cominghomeneverfeltsogood” in her message.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss commented: “Yessss girl, welcome to the platinum club!!!”
