Matt Smith, who plays Prince Daemon Targaryen on HBO's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, is well-known for his role as the Doctor on BBC's Doctor Who, as Prince Philip in Netflix's The Crown. He has starred in films including Last Night in Soho and Morbius.
After playing Prince Philip in The Crown and executing an epic battle without dialogue in House of the Dragon, Fallon introduces Jimmy to a few phrases in the High Valyrian language. By the most recent episode, the actor highlights his long hairstyle.
'I'm excellent from the sides,' Matt Smith says, adding that the blonde-silverish hair wig takes a lot of time to put on, and he prefers the short one more, saying, 'It's when I'm at my best, actually, when I don't speak,' he adds. In episode 3, the host praises his intense acting with the Crab feeder.
As he demonstrates his language abilities to the host and the audience, he demonstrates that the Valyrian phrases have strange English phrases when reversed.
While the actor has been a pleasure throughout the episode, he seems to forget that you can't swear on national television, and we hear the beeps in every few sentences. The host expected him to realize it after a few times but he seemed to be really unaware of it as the entire 7 minutes go through his head.
