Emilia Clarke can now eliminate meeting Matt LeBlanc as one of her bucket list items.
The “Game of Thrones” actress couldn’t contain her admiration for LeBlanc during a May 28 appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” along with Kate Beckinsale, and Dominic Cooper.
“Emilia Clarke, did you get to chat with everyone backstage? Did you get to talk to him?” Norton asks Clarke, pointing to LeBlanc.
“Yeah, kind of,” says a blushing Clarke, who bursts into a fit of laughter. “I just think you’re wicked.”
Clarke admits she is a big fan of the NBC sitcom,”Friends” but LeBlanc can’t say he’s a fan of her award winning HBO series.
“I watched it the first season, and then I kind of fell out of it,” the actor admitted when asked if he tunes into the popular series. “And then I tried to watch it this season, and I don’t know what’s going on.”
“It’s OK!” Clarke says with a wide smile on her face. “You’ve seen the good bits—you’ve seen the first season.”
When LeBlanc promises he will resume watching, Clarke doesn’t seem too interested in his promise, but does have a request for the “Top Gear” actor.
“I do have one slight request from you though,” Clarke says. “Would you be able to ask me how I’m doing?”
LeBlanc played Italian womanizer Joey Tribbiani on the NBC sitcom, whose catchphrase pickup line “How you doin’?”
The 48-year-old actor obliges with the request as a favor in not keeping up with the Brit’s show.
There was more interaction between the two Hollywood stars. Backstage, the pair posed for a photo, which Clarke uploaded onto her Instagram page.
“How YOU doin??! Downright GIDDY now!!” Clarke captioned the smiling photo. “Bucket list accomplishment already underway with this gem (both in Joey and Matt form)”
Clarke’s new film, “Me Before You” is scheduled for nationwide release on June 3.
