Madonna recently donned the Daenerys Targaryen look from “Game of Thrones” to celebrate Purim, posting the results on Instagram over the weekend, and the Mother of Dragons, or rather, the woman who plays her – Emilia Clarke – was impressed.
“Oh my goodness. It’s insane. I thought I was asleep, I thought I was dreaming,” Emilia told Access Hollywood at Tuesday night’s “Game of Thrones” premiere at Lincoln Center in New York City of seeing Madonna dressed as her character.
“It’s a huge moment,” Emilia added. “And, damn! She looks good.”
For Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, a character that challenges female stereotypes in HBO’s fantasy drama, it was a big deal.
“I got really, really excited. Madonna’s always been a favorite of mine. I love her strength and her transformative nature and the idea that she might be dressing up as a brilliant character in the TV show I’m in is pretty exciting,” Gwen told Access.
