The only “Game of Thrones” cast member who could rival Emilia Clarke in the hair department is Kit Harington ― and we all know he plans to cut his hair short after the fantasy series is done for good. 

But Clarke, a natural brunette whose icy-white locks have been a signature for her character on the HBO juggernaut, has beat him to it, debuting a pixie cut on Instagram on Thursday.

The British actress explained that her new ear-length ’do is inspired by Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow’s famous matching pixie cuts, when the two were an item back in the ’90s. 

“Me: I’m thinking when Gwyneth and Brad had the same hair cut. @jennychohair : I got ’chu,” Clarke wrote in the caption, with the hashtags #nowijustneedanextra2feetoflegs and #fortheloveofthelowmaintenance.”

For a point of reference, this was the style Clarke was going for, and we’re of the opinion that she absolutely nailed it.

A shorter look for Clarke has been in the works for a while now, as dying her hair for “Game of Thrones” season after season has severely damaged her hair. 

The “Solo: A Star Wars” star previously revealed she’s always wanted to go full- pixie, but was worried “my face could take it.”

“Yes, it is quite short ― because my hair was, like, dying!” Clarke told Harper’s Bazaar UK earlier this month. “So I’ve cut it a little bit shorter. It’s almost the shortest it’s been. I’m honestly trying to grow out the blonde, because it’s just killed my hair, and I miss having nice hair!

“I do like the length but I wish my hair was longer. I do bloody love long hair, but then I’m always dreaming of cutting it all off and having a pixie cut – but I don’t know that my face could take it.”

Those already mourning Clarke’s tresses will be happy to know that “Game of Thrones” and her wig returns for a final season in early 2019.
