Game of Thrones’ Secret UCB Connection

Sometimes it seems like everyone in Hollywood comes from UCB. Aziz Ansari! Donald Glover! Er, Jason Momoa! Yep, Khal Drogo himself from Game of Thrones was a UCB intern once upon a time. "He used to be in my Level 3 class, and I used to be like, 'Jason, Jason, just relax. Try not to play so high-status,'" Amy Poehler jokes. "And he’d be like, 'But I’m 6’5 and I’m a giant.' And I’d be like, 'I want to see your sweeter side, I guess.'" Between that and improvisers' inclination toward nerdiness, how has there not been an improvised Game of Thrones performance yet?
