Game of Thrones fans spot major blunder as Daenerys’ hair dramatically changes as she arrives at Winterfell


GAME of Thrones fans have spotted a major blunder as Daenerys Targaryen’s hair dramatically changed in the first episode of season 8.

The Mother of Dragons made her grand arrival at Winterfell on Monday night’s show and had her platinum locks intricately entwined for the occasion.

But eagle-eyed viewers noticed that her elaborate plaits at the back of her head changed within moments.

The continuity error was likely to be caused by the wrong wig being put on actress Emilia Clarke‘s head between takes.

In the first shot Dany‘s hair is braided back in her traditional style with a braid for every victory in battle – something she has picked up from Dothraki culture.

In a second shot, her hair is braided into a bun – a very regal and southern Westeros style that looks like something Sansa Stark would have worn when she lived in King’s Landing.

But then it changed to a bun in the blink of an eye

“Dany is wearing different wigs during her arrival in Winterfell,” one disappointed fan tweeted.

“Doesn’t everybody pack multiple wigs when meeting your SO’s family?” another fan joked.

Meanwhile, Game Of Thrones’ star Kit Harington pretended to gag after kissing Emilia Clarke as he joked about on set.

Kit, 32, plays reluctant hero Jon Snow in the show, with Emilia, 32, taking on the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

One of the first episode’s most talked about scenes being  Jon and Dany’s romantic kiss in front of a waterfall after going on a dragon ride together.

HBO have since released a behind-the-scenes video for the episode, where show runners admitted the kiss had to be filmed in front of a green screen – despite the cast and crew flying out to Iceland for the country’s scenic beauty.

One clip shows the two actors filming the kiss, with Kit gagging, groaning and  joking around as he shares a smooch with his co-star.

Kit previously admitted that kissing ‘best friend’ Emilia was ‘odd’


The actor recently admitted that he found kissing Emilia “odd” as he considers her one of his “best friends”.

He told The Mirror at the time: “Emilia and I had been best friends over a seven-year period and by the time we had to kiss it seemed really odd.”

Addressing his wife, Rose Leslie, the star continued: “Emilia, Rose and I are good friends, so even though you’re actors and it’s your job there’s an element of weirdness when the three of us are having dinner and we had a kissing scene that day.”
