'Game of Thrones': Emilia Clarke Weighs in on Big Jon Snow Fan Theory

Is it finally time for The Dragon to meet the Lion?

As Game of Thrones returns with season five Sunday, among the big questions fans are asking themselves: Are Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) going to meet?

Clarke says she was not aware of the rumor that Jon is actually family, but joked that perhaps Daenerys and Jon would "get together" in a romantic way, as that's what Targaryens tend to do to "keep the bloodline pure."

"If me and Jon Snow did meet, it would be interesting," said Clarke. "It would be funny, but I think Daenerys would ultimately kick his ass."
