    Emilia Clarke Reveals Embarrassing Game of Thrones Audition: "I Did the Funky Chicken"

    We definitely won't see Daenerys Targaryen showing off her dance moves anytime soon, because let's face it, the Mother of Dragons is focused on the Iron Throne. But Emilia Clarke, that's another story.

    The Game of Thrones star stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night and opened up about her somewhat embarrassing and unique audition for the HBO hit series.

    "There was a lot of adrenaline, I was very nervous," the 26-year-old told Jimmy Fallon. "It was a big deal. Audition, obviously. There were lots of people from HBO there. And I was kind of anxious and did all of the scenes."

    The British brunette beauty then asked the somewhat intimidating group if there was anything else she could do, even "make them some tea or something."

    "[Co-creator and showrunner] David Benioff suggested I do a dance...and so I did," Clarke admitted.

    "Oh no," the late night host quipped.

    "I don't know how to do it, but I did the funky chicken," Clarke coyly shared. "And I kind of morphed into the robot."

    Daenerys grooving with her army and dragons, that would be quite a sight.

    Game of Thrones, and Daenerys, will return for its fourth season on HBO on April 6.
