Jimmy Fallon interviews Kristen Wiig as Khaleesi on The Tonight Show

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon’s interview with Game of Thrones‘ Khaleesi taught us that the Mother of Dragons is just like everyone else—she has hobbies, likes to vacation by the shore, and has to deal with the logistical horrors of plane travel.

It helps that, during the interview, Khaleesi was played by Kristen Wiig.

Wiig stopped by The Tonight Show ahead of the premiere of her film Welcome to Me—which you can read more about in EW’s Summer Movie Preview. But she came dressed as Daenerys Targaryen, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, with her favorite dragon, Carl, accompanying her.

The result is a much more casual Khaleesi than Game of Thrones fans might be used to. But they’ll also learn plenty of surprising facts about their favorite Breaker of Chains. After all, this interview may be our only chance to hear Daenerys talk about her stand up routine or sing along to one of her biggest musical hits in the Seven Kingdoms—even if she’s unaware the song exists.

For more on Welcome to Me, be sure to read EW’s interview with Wiig about the film, which releases May 1.
