Sandra Oh is living out her rock star fantasy. 

The Killing Eve star jumps in the backseat—while Duran Duran bassist John Taylor takes the wheel and lead vocalist Simon Le Bon rides shotgun—for a musical ride in this exclusive clip from Apple TV+'s Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

"This is beyond a dream come true," Sandra gushes to John and Simon. "I don't think I ever would even have dared to dream this."

Sandra, however, is determined to take her dream to the next level—and outside the confines of the vehicle.

"Can I ask you a big favor?" she asks. "Is it possible that we could possibly perform on stage together?"

Without hesitation, Simon responds, "I think that could be arranged." John agrees, saying, "We can do that, Sandra."

So, the trio high-tails it to the Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles, where they enthusiastically sing Duran Duran's 1982 smash hit "Rio."

"Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand," Sandra sings while jumping around in a black jacket adorned with diamonds, "just like that river twisting through a dusty land."

Not a bad way to turn a dream into a reality.

Sandra's love for Duran Duran—the English new wave band who rose to prominence in the '80s with songs like "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Girls on Film"—is well-documented. 

During her press tour for Pixar's Turning Red—which involves a young girl's obsessive boy band fandom—she was asked who tickled her musical fancy when she was the same age.

"During that exact time in my life, my band was Duran Duran," Sandra told Screen Rant in March. "A lot of Britpop. That happened. That was probably my fangirl-dom."
