No character killed off in "Game of Thrones" is more beloved than season one's Khal Drogo, played by real-life badass Jason Momoa. In a new video interview for Rolling Stone, Emilia Clarke (whose character Daenerys was married to the impressive Khal Drogo on season one) tells the story of meeting her new co-star and on-screen husband for the first time.
"I walked in and from the other side of this enormous lobby I hear 'WIFEY!'" Clarke said. "And this huge Hawaiian man comes bounding over to me, picks me up, and genuinely gets me in a rugby tackle to the floor. It was only when he picked me back up and kind of dusted me off that I was like, 'Who are you?'"
