Kristen Wiig Channels Game of Thrones' Khaleesi During Tonight Show Interview

Game of Thrones fans might never look at their beloved Khaleesi the same way ever again — and it’s all thanks to Kristen Wiig.

The former SNL star appeared in character as Thrones‘ Daenerys Targaryen during Wednesday’s Tonight Show, leading to one of the most insane host-guest interactions since Jimmy Fallon took over in 2014.

Wiig/Targaryen was happy to offer surprising new details about her life, as well as introduce Fallon to one of her dragons, which sat politely on her shoulder throughout the duration of the interview.

There’s just one thing Wiig forgot to do: learn anything about the character. Her lack of Thrones knowledge became hilariously evident when she alleged that Khaleesi’s real name is “Karen” and that she grew up “in the forest … on a mountain.”

  1. I get the feeling the lack of knowledge was meant to be a joke about her just trying to be relevant and sucking at it or something. Some kind of performance art thing.

    I love it when she does this. She did it as Michael Jordan and Harry Styles as well. Look it up on youtube! Hilarious!
