“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke can sing Hanson’s “MMMBop” in Dothraki, and it sounds a lot scarier than the real version.
“I can’t stress enough how less catchy that is,” Meyers said after Clarke’s rendition, which she apparently began singing on set for fun.
The pop song came up in conversation on Tuesday’s episode of “Late Night” while the actress was discussing the language created for the popular HBO fantasy series.
“It’s a language,” Clarke told Seth Meyers on Tuesday’s episode of “Late Night. “It’s a full language, you can study it … David Peterson wrote it for the TV show.”
She added that the language, spoken by the nomadic horse-mounted warriors in the fictional land of Essos, has won awards. Or at least, that’s what someone told her once and it sounded so cool she just kept telling people that.
Clarke also told Meyers about how she gets to learn her lines in Dothraki, having her scenes in both English and Dothraki on her script. And after playing Queen Daenerys Targaryen for six seasons, no one really knows when she makes a mistake.
