Emilia Clarke, you’ve got some competition girl. 18 year old newbie Rosie Mac looks just like the Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. When in the costume for Daenerys Targaryen, the two look exceptionally alike.
The resemblance is so uncanny that if the creators ever think of replacing Clarke, fans might not be able to catch the difference. Not that we want that, Emilia is doing just fine doing her thing as the mother of dragons.
Rosie Mac, an actress and a model is from Cornwall, England however, she moved to Marbella, Spain eight years back. Just like Clarke, Mac is also naturally a brunette. But the character allows her to have the same platinum blonde wig and piercing blue eyes.
Most of the sites say that Mac is a double and stand-in for Clarke though Business Insider says that she is just a stand-in.
You might be confused about the difference right? So a Stand-in is only used when the actor is not available, to set the lighting and camera. While a double is used for scenes that the actor won’t do or cannot do such as fighting sequels, showing skin or other.
The resemblance became the talk of the town when Mac uploaded her picture in makeup on Instagram, it went viral and people loved it.
Reportedly, the creators of game of Thrones are super impressed with Mac’s performance on set that they have written an entire scene for her. Although some sources claim that a role was discussed but it never came through.
