“She is a drag queen not dragon queen”: Fans aren’t impressed with this new ‘Game of Thrones’ waxwork

The Dublin Waxworks Museum revealed the new addition yesterday

With Game of Thrones fever well underway, a new waxwork based on the hit TV series has been revealed – and fans can’t stop laughing about it.

Much of Game of Thrones, which is currently in its final season, was filmed in Ireland. To celebrate the popular series and its connections with the country, the Dublin Waxworks Museum has now revealed a new addition to its collection of figures.

The museum has added a waxwork of dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen (who is played by Emilia Clarke), and the museum’s Laois Keaveney said they were “delighted to add an extra woman to the museum.”


Speaking to FM104, Keaveney added: “Game of Thrones obviously is huge in Ireland and it’s filmed in Ireland, and we thought the best thing is to add a woman from Game of Thrones to the museum. She stands in our grand hall of fame now.”

While the museum are very proud of the new addition, fans are not quite as impressed – expressing that the new waxwork looked more like Legolas from Lord of the Rings than Daenerys Targaryen. David Bowie and Annie Lennox were just a couple of the other comparisons made on social media.

“I am absolutely screaming SCREAMING SCREAMING at the Daenerys Targaryen waxwork in the Dublin Waxworks Museums,” said one Twitter user (see above).

Comments on the museum’s Facebook post included: “Madame Tussauds must be bricking themselves,” “Looks like something from white chicks,” and “Penny’s rang they want their mannequin back.”

One Instagram comment read: “She is a drag queen not dragon queen.”


Yesterday (April 24), Game Of Thrones star Daniel Portman slammed female fans for allegedly groping him.

Portman, who plays Podrick Payne in the fantasy drama, claims he encountered a number of uncomfortable situations, and said people should be able to “separate reality from fiction” and “it’s certainly not cool”.

Meanwhile, Maisie Williams has shared her response to her character’s sex scene in the latest episode of Game Of Thrones. Fans had a lot to say about the scene, with some finding it uncomfortable, having watched Arya grow up in the show.
