The last time we saw Emilia Clarke, she looked like this.
Now, the Game of Thrones actress has taken a huge step closer to fully transforming into Daenerys Targaryen herself, debuting a new shade of Khaleesi blonde on Instagram along with the caption "Emilia, meet Mother of Dragons. If you squint just so, you might never know."
It's a major change for the English beauty, who's kept her dark brown locks throughout the show's seven seasons and donned a wig to play her character. And as expected, her shift to bleached blonde is already sparking theories for the eighth installment that might not air until 2019. (Sigh.) Welcome to Team Platinum, Emilia—and please keep these posts coming during the long off-season.
