Emilia Clarke Had a Weird Game of Thrones Audition
Apparently it was kind of a mess.
By Mike Ayers
When watching Game of Thrones, you get the sense that Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi), is as cool as it comes. She never has any hesitations about offing a dude and her baby dragons seem well-disciplined. But that wasn't the case for Clarke's Thrones audition.
The cast are currently in New York for the season-four premiere and last week Clarke stopped by The Tonight Show and told host Jimmy Fallon about the time she tried out for the part. She probably nailed it, but being the nice British woman she is, she asked show creator David Benioff if he needed anything else from her, like say a cup of tea. His response? "Dance." So she did... and from her recollection, it was an awkward mess. Watch as she skirts around the subject below:
Still, Fallon did manage to squeeze a tiny bit out of her regarding the show's return. "It's a dark, dark season," she teased.
