Amanda Peet revealed some startling news this week–she was not originally a fan of Game of Thrones, the show her husband co-created.

Peet, who is married to GoT power player David Benioff, thought the idea for the show was “silly” when she first heard of it.

“It’s just silly…it’s like Dungeons and Dragons but real with real people,” the actress told Conan O’Brien, to boos from the audience.

Peet did go on to admit that now she is a major fan of the Emmy-winning HBO drama, saying she purposefully avoids getting spoilers from her husband.

“Now I’m obsessed.”

J-Connection: Amanda Peet is Jewish through her mother, and David Benioff’s parents are of German and Russian Jewish descent. The pair married in 2006 and they have three children together.
