HARPER’S BAZAAR – Emilia Clarke has gorgeous hair. Long, dark, just the right amount of body and wave.
She’s a walking L’Oréal campaign. The irony, of course, is that few of us have actually seen Clarke’s hair, hidden as it is under Daenerys Targaryen’s regal waist-length blonde locks in Game of Thrones.
Well, regal blonde wig. There are a few wigs, in fact, housed in the show’s mythical “wig room” at its studio base in Northern Ireland, Clarke explains over tea at Los Angeles’s Sunset Marquis hotel. “The wig room is incredible,” she says. “Every character has a wig almost, because we’ve all got bonkers hair. I have named mine. Seasons 1 and 2, she was just Dany. And then Diva came along [following Daenerys’s Mother of Dragons moment], she’s completely huge. She didn’t behave herself.”
The joy of Clarke is that she doesn’t behave herself either. While Game of Thrones is bloody and sexy, Clarke is saucy. Plonking down in a fuzzy Coach sweater (featuring a creature that looks like the love child of Karl Lagerfeld and a rabbit), faded Levi’s, and punky white Dior pumps, she has a quick wit and a ribald humor. She admits to trying to “blag” one of Khaleesi’s dragon eggs (which birthed three now poorly behaved teenage dragons), to no avail. “Apparently Jay Z bought one for Beyoncé, or something,” she laughs. “I don’t know.” No eggs reside in the Clarke residence because “they are really, really, really expensive and they are really fucking heavy and serious works of art.” Like Fabergé? “Eggs-actly! Eggs-cellent!”
The past four years, since Game of Thrones first aired, have been a game changer for the British-born Clarke, 28, who jobbed around in random television gigs before winning her role in 2010. “I was literally so over the moon to have an audition, just an audition, let alone for HBO,” she recalls. “I was doing a million jobs and thinking it would never happen. Not a chance. Not. A. Chance.”
That was then. Now Clarke still gets a kick out of the spectacle of it all. “That’s my face; it’s on that television. ‘It’s not TV, it’s HBO.’ But every time I see it and every time I hear it, I wait for [sings] the Sex and the City song … every time!” And Game of Thrones is a monolith, averaging more than 19 million viewers an episode, besting HBO’s previous cultural capstone The Sopranos. There are Daenerys Targaryen dolls and key rings, and scores of fans who chant “Khaleesi!” (Clarke’s queenly moniker) like a mantra. (Read the rest of the article at the source)
I’ve been finally able to add to the gallery HQ digital scans from the May issue of Vogue UK featuring Emilia, and HQ outtakes from her photoshoot. She looks SO SO great! Be sure to check them out in our gallery:
VOGUE UK – EMILIA CLARKE covers the May issue of British Vogue, marking the 28-year-old’s debut on home turf. Inside the issue, the Game of Thrones actress reveals all, including her parents’ reaction to her becoming an actress, and what it’s like returning for season five as one of TV’s most famous heroines.
“I went back to Game of Thrones and it was like coming home. Just the smell of the hotel in Belfast made me feel safe,” she revealed. “I told myself, forget the big game plan; all I want is to do jobs that make me happy.”
She has, however had to be careful what her parents see of her most famous role – Game of Thrones isn’t exactly known for being tame.
“When I first read the scripts, I was on holiday with my family. I told my dad, you’re not going to be able to watch the first five episodes.” (source)
Digital scans from the May issue of Empire UK have been added to the gallery. Sadly they’re not in the best of quality but hopefully I’ll be able to replace them with better versions soon or later. Enjoy! Emilia is featured for both Terminator Genisys and Game of Thrones!
