Ryan Condal, co-showrunner of the streaming series House of the Dragon, recently opened up on the struggle behind getting the hair right for each character in the Game of Thrones prequel.

"I think we bought up all of the white hair that existed in Europe. We needed multiple wigs for each actor. For example, Matt Smith, as Daemon, had five different wigs because he has different haircuts as time passes in the story."
