Watch Kristen Wiig Portray Daenerys Targaryen, aka ‘Karen’by Maggie Malach | PopCrush
Everyone’s really excited about Game of Thrones Season 5, and Kristen Wiig knows it. The actress stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and did an entire interview in the character of Daenerys Targaryen!
Of course, leave it to Jimmy to ask the hard-hitting questions, like Dany’s real name (“Karen”) and where she’s originally from (“… the forest?”). Kristen’s years on Saturday Night Live weren’t enough training to stop her from breaking nearly every time she spoke (Jimmy never stood a chance).
Even though Kristen’s Game of Thrones knowledge is, well, lacking, the interview is still mildly informative. For instance, Daenerys sometimes goes by “Khaleesi” — which Jimmy explains means “queen.” Yay, accuracy! Less accurate, however, was Kristen’s accent, which she periodically dropped, as the late-night host pointed out.
Things got super heated when Jimmy launched a Rapid Fire Round of questioning. Kristen — err, Daenerys — named her favorite food, her favorite article of clothing, her favorite vacation spot and more.
Kristen was actually visiting Tonight to promote her new movie, Welcome to Me. (And, in case you’re wondering, “Daenerys” claims she’s a huge Kristen Wiig fan.) The movie hits select theaters on May 1 and goes nationwide on May 9.
