All hail the Mother of Dragons.
Unexpectedly, Game of Thrones and the NBA collided last night during the basketball game between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors. In the audience of the Western Conference Semifinals at the Houston Toyota Center was none other than Emilia Clarke, a.k.a. Daenerys Targaryen, kicking back and enjoying a night out. But no one could ignore the fact that she was there--not even a mascot named Clutch.
An adorably hilarious video shows the Rockets' mascot Clutch walking by Emilia and being startled by her presence. He then drops his coffee cup (no doubt a nod to the accidental coffee in her scene from last episode) and bows to her. The 32-year-old actress bursts out into laughter, as do the people around her. And of course, Clutch then bends the knee to his queen. Watch below.
We love to see everyday people paying their respects to the actors behind their favorite Game of Thrones characters. And we know Emilia is hardly the first star from the hit series to have been spotted at a sports game. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, even chugged a whole cup of wine when she was shown on the Jumbotron at a recent New York Rangers hockey game.
The ladies of Game of Thrones know how it's done! We hope to see them out and about more often, especially when the series is all over.
