‘Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke Had Butterflies About Her Scene With Peter Peter Dinklage

"I'm like, 'Oh my goodness, I'm talking to that dude on my telly'," Clarke said.

It has been building for going on four and half years, but  this past week the epic meeting of two of ‘Game Of Thrones’ most popular characters happened and it was as epic for the actors than it was for the viewers.

In a recent interview with EW Emilia Clarke talked about her shock upon discovering that two of ‘Game of Thrones‘ most-loved characters would cross paths in season five.

After four and a half years apart, Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister met for the first time in the current run of the HBO fantasy drama – surprising Clarke as much as anyone.

“I was just flipping along reading, reading – ‘WHAT?!’

“And then at the end of the episode, there was a break and I was like, ‘Why don’t you send me the next script? I want to know what happens!'”

Clarke also spoke about shooting a scene with Peter Dinklage as Tyrion for the first time.

“I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m talking to that dude on my telly’,” Clarke said. “I’m nervous. Butterflies. This is huge!”

As to what we can expect from the epic meeting of Tyrion and Daenerys, Clarke said: “I think Dany could learn how to get what she wants from Tyrion. Also I think Dany could learn how to crack a joke, maybe. She could learn to stop taking things so seriously and stop just gazing into the distance at some point.”

Game of Thrones concludes its fifth season on HBO in the US and on Sky Atlantic in the UK this week.
