Yup. That’s how Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, met Jason Momoa, aka Khal Drogo, aka her spouse on the show. According to Clarke, Momoa yelled from across a hotel lobby, approached her, and tackled her. Not hug, tackle. Six-foot tall Momoa tackling five-foot tall Clarke. That’s the first time they ever met.
The whole thing is much more adorable when told from Clarke’s perspective though, so go ahead and watch her tell the story in this Rolling Stone interview. Besides, that laugh is just too infectious.
Emilia Clarke shared this story and more in a recent interview she did for Rolling Stone. Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on HBO on July 16th, and we. can’t. wait.
