Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke opens the double standards that have appeared in the costume of the hit series. The 33-year-old top actress told at Edinburgh TV festivals how there were amenities in the male actors ’outfits that were not offered to women.
The Daily Mail writes that, according to Clarke, the male actors ’costumes had built-in coolers. Clarke is known for his role in the Hener fantasy series Daenerys Targaryen.
Game of Thrones was filmed in many different climates, shooting locations ranging from cold Iceland to hot Malta. Fur outfits are especially favored by characters like Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington, and other Night Guard role-playing characters. Clarke’s character also appears in the series in furs, although he is often seen in other types of costumes as well.
Emilia Clarke became known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen.
When shooting in hot climates in thick fur outfits, the actors occasionally got embarrassingly hot. A special means of cooling was offered to those who acted as night watch figures.
“When we were shooting in hot countries and they were all wearing them, they had generator-operated pumps attached to their outfits,” Clarke said.
“It was used to pump cold water into pipes to cool the outfits, they had such a special cooling system down there,” Clarke described.
The Game of Thrones was filmed in a variety of climates.
According to Clarke, however, female actors were not offered a similar cooling opportunity. Clarke's only way to cool down was to lift the wig away from sweating his head. It was reportedly too difficult for women to cool by the same method as men, and Clarke was instructed to cool herself with cool bags.
