Yes, Emilia Clarke has watched that episode of Game of Thrones with the unknown bidder who laid down a whopping $160,000 for the honor at a January auction.

“It was a bit of a surreal evening,” Clarke told Yahoo Entertainment (watch above) at the Los Angeles press day for her new film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. (She co-stars as Qi’ra, long-lost love interest to Alden Ehrenreich’s young smuggler.)

Clarke clearly did not want to get into details  perhaps because the bidder from Sean Penn’s fundraiser for relief in Haiti chose to remain anonymous.

But she did speak a little more about the runner-up, Brad Pitt. The actor fell short in his attempt to spend some QT with the GoT star who plays Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen. Pitt bid only $120K at the Sotheby’s event.

“It was the weirdest experience of my entire life,” Clarke, 31, said of the auction. “I thought my head was going to explode. I went bright red and couldn’t stop smiling. It was amazing. I texted everyone I knew.”

Clarke could hardly contain herself while gleefully reliving the moment.

“After it happened I pretty much called my entire phone book and was like, ‘I just need everyone to know this happened to me.’”

Solo: A Star Wars Story opens May 25. Watch the trailer:
