Game of Thrones star attempts an Irish accent for Jimmy Kimmel

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke appeared on the Jimmy Fallon show and attempted to impress the audience with her Irish accent.

The English actress has become a familiar face to millions of fans around the world thanks to her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series.

Clarke joined chat king Kimmel on his show via video link and the pair discussed her new comic book M.O.M. (Mother of Madness).

Kimmel then challenged the star to recite the lyrics to the one of the big songs of the summer, good 4 u by Olivia Rodrigo, only in a variety of accents – a regular bit on his show.

Clarke was happy to oblige and performed the song impressively in numerous accents starting with New York and California.

She was then prompted to switch to Russian, French and Australian and excelled with all.

The last accent Clarke was asked to do was the Irish one, and she had a can of Guinness at the ready to crack open and set the scene.

The star only spoke a couple of words in her Irish accent but it was a good effort and enough to get a round of applause from Kimmel and his studio audience.

You can take a look at the video below.

The Irish accent is something that is notoriously hard to master for actors. Every time one is attempted it is put under incredible scrutiny, meaning the task comes with plenty of pressure.

Some of the top names in Hollywood have been slammed for their attempts at an Irish accent in movies.

In fact, there was even a list compiled by the Independent newspaper of the worst Irish accents in the history of film.

Cork-born Cillian Murphy has become a star of Hollywood himself thanks to his performances in blockbusters including 28 Days Later and Inception.
