Actress Emilia Clarke paid a visit to The Ellen Show for Thursday’s episode (April 14), where she sat down to talk about the massive success of Game of Thrones and play a game of Heads-Up.
When asked about the moment she realized how big Game of Thrones was, Emilia admitted: “I think there’s a huge part of me that still doesn’t quite see that it is.”
However, she revealed: “Me and my brother used to watch a lot of The Simpsons growing up, that’s what we watched all the time. And I remember the day he called me, I think it was season two, and he called me and he was like, ‘Dude! Get on YouTube now because you are The Simpson’s opening!’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god we made it! We did it, that’s it!'”
Emilia also played a fun game of Heads-Up! with Ellen, where she showed off all her different accents – including a Valley Girl accent, French accent, and Italian accent.
You can catch Emilia in the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres on HBO on Sunday April 24th at 9/8c.
