Emilia Clarke discussed the first time she met Jason Momoa, and it's hilarious
While we’re anticipating the upcoming new season of Game of Thrones, we might as well learn a little more about the queen of dragons. In a video for Rolling Stone, Emilia Clarke revealed a few of her “firsts” — including the first time she met Jason Momoa, who’d end up being her television husband, Khal Drogo.
But, her first question was all about the dragons — specifically, the first scene she ever had to act with them. As it turns out, it was during a moment when she was “butt naked” on a cliff. She actually used the dragons a bit as wardrobe, saying that “I had to strategically carry them to cover my lady parts.”
The moment she met Momoa was similarly memorable.
The two first met in a hotel lobby in Belfast. Clarke, exhausted and with her bags, was greeted a bit aggressively by the Hawaiian actor.
From there, Momoa picked up Clarke and put her in — as she recalls — a rugby tackle. So, from the sounds of it, Momoa felt comfortable with Clarke from the very first moment they met.
From the video, we also learned that Clarke’s first drunken moment was…perhaps a bit too young. While the actress failed to give a specific age, she did claim that she honestly didn’t know any better at the time.
While we definitely miss seeing her on-screen with Momoa, perhaps the two can someday reunite. We have a feeling they’ll be able to pick up right where they left off.
