Emilia Clarke, who plays Queen Daenerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show “Game of Thrones,” has a way of dealing with nerdy fans who insist on fighting for her honor. She let them fight in a hilarious skit on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night.

Clark’s Queen Dany is one of the few redeeming characters left on the show, and the British actress has a huge fan following.

During a discussion of the medieval fantasy show last night, a fan popped up in the audience, wearing a “Game of Thrones” tee-shirt and challenged anyone in the audience to to fight him for the “queen’s honor.”

The skit was a take off story arc where Khaleesi is forced to reopen the fighting pits in Mereene to placate the city’s elite. Jorah, a former confidant and adviser who was banished for spying, tries to get back in her favor by fighting for her honor in the pits.

So, of course, every nerd fan dreams of doing the same.

In any event, the challenge did not go unmet. Another nerdy fan takes up the challenge. “Yes, you can fight for my honor. Thank you. Go for it,” said Clarke, bemoaning the fact that this sort of thing “happens quite a lot.”

With that, the two men paid their respects to the “queen,” stripped to the waist and engaged what can only generously be called a “fight.”

After one vanquished the other, Clarke called out their charade: “Will you kill him now?” she asked.

But that was a little further than either wanted to go. “I now command you to kill him!” Clarke decreed.

Kimmel salvaged the moment by advising them to take it outside.
