HBO’s smash hit series Game of Thrones might have come to an end, but main actress Emilia Clarke is still seething over the design of the costumes female actors had to wear.
Clarke is not so much against the skimpy outfits, but rather the inequality between male and female actors in terms of costume design and comfort.
“When we were shooting things in a hot country when they had all of those things on, they had this pump that had its own little generator attached into the costumes. They used it to pump cold water into these pipes and cool them all down so underneath they had this weird kind of cooling system,” she explained during an interview at the Edinburgh TV Festival.
But for female cast members, the only thing that they got to cool down was quick wig lift.
“But girls weren’t allowed that. All I could get was the back of my wig to be lifted up. It’s too hard, I’ve got a wig on, they don’t make cold packs you know, you put ice packs on yourself,” she explained.
But the conditions couldn’t have been all that bad, as Clarke has been romantically linked to GoT assistant director Tom Turner.
“Emilia and Tom have really hit it off. He’s already pretty smitten with her and sees a long-term future between them,” a source revealed.
The star recently admitted that they have bonded over their mutual love for dogs.
