Emilia Clarke is a star on one of the biggest shows on TV these days, but she's too busy fangirling over Matt LeBlanc to notice.

Both LeBlanc and Clarke appeared on The Graham Norton Show where the Game of Thrones actress couldn't help but blush and gush over the Friends alum. The Me Before You actress, 29, has a massive crush on the 48-year-old actor, so she couldn't contain herself while sitting next to him on the couch. Even when he confessed he stopped watching her HBO show after the first season, she overlooked it.

"I watched it the first season, and then I kind of fell out of it, and then I tried to watch it this season and I don't know what's going on," LeBlanc explained.

"It's OK," Clarke responded. "You've seen the good bits."

Despite everything that has happened since season one—goodbye, Hodor—Clarke continued to assure him that he didn't miss much. Given his faux pas, however, Clarke was in the perfect position to ask him a "slight request" before the show ended.

"Would you be able to ask me how I'm doing?" she requested.

LeBlanc laughed and acknowledged that he would do it, but not before host Graham Norton warned, "You can say no, but everyone would hate you."

The pressure! Of course, he happily obliged. LeBlanc suavely asked Clarke, "How you doin'?" and made the Mother of Dragons blush a deep shade of red. She admitted the pick-up line still worked its magic all these years later, and Kate Beckinsale, who was also a guest on the episode, agreed.

Clarke also snapped a selfie with LeBlanc and shared it on Instagram, where she once again fangirled over her celebrity crush. "How YOU doin??! Downright GIDDY now!! Bucket list accomplishment already underway with this gem (both in Joey and Matt form)," she wrote.
