Auditions can be stressful, especially if it’s for an HBO fantasy show. In a featurette for Variety, Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones revealed that she ended up doing a ‘Funky Chicken’ dance during her audition for the show.
“David Benioff was like ‘you can do a dance’ — like, as a joke, And I took him so seriously, because I was just so — I might as well have brought in a little apple, like, a teacher’s pet; I just wanted it so bad.”
So will we see Mother of Dragons’ dance moves on Thrones? Clarke doesn’t think so:
“I don’t think you’re going to see it. I tried to make her funny, and it doesn’t work. Khaleesi isn’t funny.”
