Even Nick Jonas gets flustered around celebrities.
With host Nick Grimshaw's help, the "Close" singer surprised Emilia Clarke on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show Thursday. Before he entered the room, Grimshaw told the actress, "He loves the show [Game of Thrones] and he was really annoyed that he missed the show when Kit Harington was on. The only reason he's going to come into Radio 1 is to see Emilia Clarke."
Clarke said she was was "beyond flattered."
When Jonas joined Clarke, he called out Grimshaw for making him look like big Game of Thrones nerd. "You really set me up for failure to not look cool at all: 'One of your biggest fans is in the building!' I'm a huge fan," he said. "I've actually already met Emilia and I said just that, at the Oscars after-party. But it wasn't like, 'I'm a fan of the 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 is a weird thing to say."
"That's an amazing thing to say!" Clarke assured him.
Jonas added, "I immediately walked away and was like, 'That sounded stupid.'"
