'Game of Thrones' Star Emilia Clarke Sings 'MMMbop' in Dothraki: Video

Emilia Clarke has been the press tour MVP for this season of Game of Thrones. From fun, charming anecdotes to hyping the #freethepenis campaign, every new chat's been a winner.

On Tuesday night, the British actress hit Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote her upcoming drama Me Before You. By the end, though, they were firmly in the Throne Zone, talking about Clarke having to dust off her Dothraki skills for the first time in several seasons.

At one point in her Season 6 run as Khaleesi, Clarke needed a little levity between takes—at her co-star's expense. While he was filming close-ups, Clarke says, "I thought it'd be funny if I did 'MMMbop' in Dothraki. And that didn't help him at all, at all."

Hit the 2:50 mark in the clip above to see what the Hanson classic sounds like when Daenerys Targaryen sends it ringing out across the Dothraki Sea. (“I can’t stress enough how much less catchy that is," Meyers decides.) 

Next, listen to the Back of the Class podcast's spoilery Game of Thrones conversation at the 20:30 mark in the episode below:
