GAME OF THRONES’ Emilia Clarke Talks “First Times” (No, Not That!)

GAME OF THRONES’ Emilia Clarke Talks “First Times” (No, Not That!)

We all remember our first time, how new and special it was, and how it seemed to change the entire story of our lives. And who can forget the HBO crew that was there to video tape it?

What? You’ve never had to act with a dragon before?

Okay, neither have we, but the Mother of Dragons, Game of ThronesEmilia Clarke, certainly has, and that experience was one of the many “first times” she discussed in this video from Rolling Stone.

Besides some of the very fun personal stories she shared, like about the first–and last–time she Googled herself, the first super fan she ever met (we would definitely whisper “Khaleesi” if we ever met her), the story of her first time getting drunk at way too young an age, and how The Simpsons showed her she had become really famous, we really loved hearing about her first encounter with Khal Drogo, actor Jason Momoa.

Game of Thrones‘ creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have often talked about how fond they are of Momoa, and how sad they were to have to say goodbye to him in season one. Clarke’s story dwells on how, when she met “the huge Hawaiian man” for the first time, he grabbed her in a giant bear hug and pulled her to the ground while yelling “wifey”… even though she had no idea who he was. (Yes, she does seem to remember this fondly, which makes it much more pleasant than Daenerys’ first meeting with Khal Drogo.)

So even though we might never have a chance to film a scene with a dragon, thanks to Clarke we’ll at least be a little prepared if we do: strategically hold the dragon to cover ourselves up, and preferably try not to be butt naked when we film.

What other–appropriate–first time questions would you like to ask her about? Tell us in the comments below.
