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.”
