Olivia Cooke is one chip off the old block!

The House of the Dragon actress made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live ahead of her Sept. 25 debut on the Game of Thrones prequel series. During the interview, she revealed that her first day on set wasn't as fun as you'd might expect for a relatable reason. 

"I was very hungover," she admitted to Jimmy Kimmel Sept. 20. "Really bad, actually. Really bad." Like so bad, she chipped her tooth. 

As Olivia explained, she had been invited on comedian Alan Carr's podcast Life's a Beach the night before. "My call time the next day wasn't until 11 so I brought a bottle of wine just as a gesture," she noted. "The podcast finished, and we're just chatting, chatting, chatting. He's telling me loads of gossip. More wine, more wine, more wine."

And as The Sound of Metal actress recalled, before she knew it she was drunk. "I don't remember getting home," she admitted. "I remember I tipped my head down to put my hair in a pony, fell over."

While Olivia didn't realize it at the time, she'd actually chipped a tooth when she fell. Granted, it was "very slight," according to the actress, so no one noticed when she turned up at work the next day. 

Alan took full responsibility for the chipped tooth, joking in a Sept. 20 Instagram video, "OMG!!! I've broken America."

But it seems like Olivia has no regrets, commenting on the post, "ahahahahahaha! worth it."

Fans can see if the chipped tooth is noticeable when Olivia makes her debut as Alicent Hightower—taking over for Emily Carey who played the younger version of the character—in episode six of the fantasy epic.

It all goes down when House of the Dragon airs Sundays on HBO.
