Emilia Clarke: Game Of Thrones Fans Don't Recognize Me Without The Wig!

Emilia Clarke told a crowd of thousands at Comic-Con 2012 that - without her blond wig -- she rarely gets recognized, and it appears nothing has changed.

"It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me," the actress told GQ magazine. "These HBO events, where I'll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they're like, 'Oh sh**! That's what you do!' They think I'm some crazy Brit who snuck her way into a Hollywood party."

Perhaps it's the lack of attention, or just her love for those long white-blond tresses, but Emilia told the mag she actually has made attempts to get permission to party in Dany's wig.

"I keep asking to go out with the wig at night, but they insist there's no way," Emilia said. "They won't let me go partying with it on! I would be killed on the spot. It's silly to say, but when I take the wig off at the end of the day, I'm rather disappointed when I look in the mirror."

Currently, Emilia is busy on Broadway with "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (now that the filming of Season 3 of "Game of Thrones" is under her belt), but she'd love to turn up in another HBO show - "Girls" - or hang with meth cooker Walter White in AMC's "Breaking Bad."

"I'd give my right arm to be, like, a random extra on 'Girls,' just to walk past one of the scenarios. I'd love that more than anything. Or, like, a meth head on 'Breaking Bad.' It'd be like, 'Where's Wally?!' Only, again, without the wig, they wouldn't recognize me."
