In case you didn’t already know, Emilia Clarke has got her Instagram game down pat. [This post has been updated with Emilia’s account — not her fan account!] Pretty much her entire account is filled with pictures of her radiant smile as well as behind-the-scenes pics from Game of Thrones. Sometimes we just look at it and sigh dreamily. But we’re not the only ones — Nick Jonas adores looking at her Instagram, too.

Emilia Clarke was a scheduled guest to promote her new movie, Me Before You, on Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1 show. . . and she wasn’t expecting Nick to make a surprise appearance. This wasn’t the first time Emilia and Nick had met face-to-face, though — they had spoken at an Oscars afterparty, and Nick said he still remembers the encounter as one of his most embarrassing moments.

“It wasn’t like ‘I’m a fan of your show,’ actually that was a part of it, but I was like, ‘I’m also a fan of your Instagram,’ which I don’t know if that’s a weird thing to say,” Nick said about the time he nervously introduced himself to Emilia (d’aww!). “That was maybe after one or two cocktails that I said that. I was highly embarrassed.”

However, it turned out that Nick needn’t be embarrassed, because Emilia was charmed: “I found it very flattering. I’m proud of that Instagram.”

So why does Nick love Emilia’s Instagram so much? He said on the radio show that she “posts great stuff, insight into the show, behind-the-scenes pictures and stuff.”

We couldn’t agree more, Nick!
