The story goes that Emilia Clarke landed the role of Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones fresh out of acting school. Well, not quite. More like fresh off the Syfy original movie Triassic Attack, where she fended off a fiendish onslaught of reanimated dinosaur fossils!
First things first. I tooootally remember this behind-the-scenes video. I even wrote up a piece about it for IGN back and IGN and Syfy were working on making a monster movie together.
The movie starred Colin Ferguson (Eureka) as a small town Sheriff and the adorable Ms. Clarke played his daughter. The two butt heads naturally, that is until an invasion of giant dino-skeletons ravages their town.
