The Mother of Dragons can bust a move! Well, sort of.

While stopping by The Tonight Show to promote season 4 of Game of Thrones on Wednesday, actress Emilia Clarke told Jimmy Fallon that GOT co-creator David Benioff “suggested [she] do a little dance” during her audition for the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

Unfortunately, she decided to show off her Funky Chicken moves. Luckily, she still got the part.

Check out the full interview here:

Game of Thrones season 4 premieres April 6 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
