Emilia Clarke says meeting Snoop Dogg was ‘greatest night' of her life
By Charlie Herbert
"I got high by proxy just being in his presence and it was beautiful."
Emilia Clarke has described the time she met Snoop Dogg as the “greatest night of my life.”
Back in March, Snoop Dogg came face-to-face with the Game of Thrones star after she came to one of his concerts at London’s O2.
Speaking to Etalk, Clarke was asked to rank the interaction on the “surreal moment scale" and emphatically answered: “10! 10 out of 10 out of 10!”
Unable to hide her joy recalling the meeting, the actor continued:
“My guy Snoop Dogg in the house with me. He said he would protect my dragons.
“I was cooking up. I mean hell, I got high by proxy just being in his presence and it was beautiful."
And Clarke revealed that the duo have big plans for the future.

“He wants to do an acting thing with me,” she explained. “We came up with this idea. We’re going to do a movie together. We’re going to take over the world.”
“It was the greatest night of my life... It was amazing. Love me some Snoop Dogg!”
When they met backstage, the 51-year-old rapper lavished praise on Clarke, saying: “You’re an amazing actress, beautiful spirit. You’re so believable. I would protect your eggs any day.”
Of course, Snoop is referring to the dragon eggs that Daenerys must protect in the first season of Game of Thrones, putting a much more innocent spin on that sentence.
Clarke replied: “Yes! Can I get that in writing?'”

She later uploaded a clip of them meeting to her Instagram, with the caption: “SNOOP. DOGGY. DOGG. The man, the myth, the legend. When he calls, you (I) come running.”
