The Mother of Dragons stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday March 19 to discuss the upcoming Season 4 of "Game of Thrones" and look back on her audition.

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen (aka Mother of Dragons, aka Khaleesi, aka Protector of the Realm) on the HBO series, told Jimmy Fallon of her embarrassing experience auditioning for the part. After reading her scenes, series co-creator David Benioff asked her to do a dance and so Clarke decided to break into the dance any nervous person would do -- the Funky Chicken, with a touch of the Robot.

Sadly for us, Fallon didn't make Clarke re-enact the dance, but he does share a new clip of her from "Game of Thrones" season 4. Check out the video above and enjoy her adorableness.

Meanwhile in the late night world, "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headey chatted with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night to talk about her character Cersei in the upcoming season and how weird it is to see other "GoT" actors she doesn't know. Watch the video below, where her sales pitch for potential new "Game of Thrones" viewers is "Come to the incest and dragons" (pretty spot on).

"Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 6.

CORRECTION: A previous version article of stated that Season 4 of "Game Of Thrones" premieres on April 4. It premieres on April 6.
