Daenerys compares the fictional language to that of the 1997 hit
Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke appeared on US TV on Tuesday night (May 24) when she attempted to explain the show’s fictional language of Dothraki by reciting the lyrics to Hanson‘s 1997 hit ‘MMMBop’.
Clarke was speaking to host Seth Meyers on The Late Show when she was asked about the HBO show’s constructed language, which is the mother tongue of the Dothraki people. In the show’s first season, Clarke’s character Daenerys is betrothed to Dothraki horse lord Khal Drogo.
Clarke explained to Meyers that Dothraki is a made-up language like how Hanson sing in their song and that Dothraki dialogue is actually included in their scripts, along with a translation. She begins to sing ‘MMBop’ at the 2:50 mark. Watch below.
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin has told the show’s producers that there will be a “holy shit moment” right at the very end of the series.
