Conan O’Brien nearly got laid out by Sansa Stark! Sophie Turner was a guest on Wednesday’s Conan, and showed a drinking game she played with her X-Men: Dark Phoenix co-stars when they weren’t shooting.
“We played this brilliant game called Tequila Slaps,” the Game of Thrones star told O’Brien and his co-host, Andy Richter, before pulling out a bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila. “I really want to play this game with you.“
The 23-year-old actress poured herself and the guys each a shot of alcohol and then instructed O’Brien to stand with his drink.
“You’re nice and tall, I like that,” the 6-foot-4 host praised Turner, before questioning how much time he had before she would slap him.
Just as the glass batter his lips, Turner hauled off and slapped O’Brien across the face! Pointless to say, he was in surprise, and Sophie was instantly remorseful.
“I’m so sorry!” she said while hugging the 56-year-old host. After coming to terms with what had just happened, O’Brien shouted, “Wow! That was a fantastic slap! …Man, you don’t screw around.“
Turner said her and her Dark Phoenix co-stars go “really, really hard” when they play the game, noting that she once had a “purple hand mark” after being slapped.
“Now, are men slapping you in this game?” Richter questioned. Turner confessed, “I mean, you can give them permission, yeah.” Richter joked, “Wow, that’s quite a workplace.“
When Turner tried again to say sorry to O’Brien, he persisted, “No, don’t be sorry. That was fantastic. I can dine in on that for years. …That’s the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in a long time.“
