Dax Shepard Talks About Game of Thrones With Seth Meyers

Dax Shepard Jokes Game of Thrones Is the "Foundation" of His Marriage With Kristen Bell

It's been nearly two months since the Game of Thrones series finale aired, and Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are still mourning the loss of their favourite show, much like the rest of us. Dax reflected on his Westeros withdrawals on Late Night With Seth Meyers Tuesday night, admitting that the HBO show was "the second-longest relationship" he's maintained behind the one he shares with Kristen, whom he first met in 2007 and married in 2013.

"I gotta say, I think it was the foundation of our friendship and marriage because we're struggling now," Dax joked. "We're watching anything and everything." Seth Meyers added, "It really makes you reassess exactly how good your marriage was without a show," to which Dax responded, "It can really get you through a couple hours together." Hah!

Dax and Kristen were certainly not shy about showing off their Game of Thrones obsession throughout the HBO show's eight-season run. The megafans attended the season six premiere in Hollywood (wearing matching shirts, no less), they teamed up to make a hysterical music video set to the show's dramatic theme song, and Kristen shed actual tears over the Red Wedding episode. Oh, and let's not forget how all-out they went for the last season premiere — Kristen suited up in a shimmery dragon costume, Dax went into full-on Bran Stark mode, and they ate "Hodouritos" all night long. I mean, does it get much more dedicated than that?

Watch Dax's full late-night interview above to see what other show he and Kristen have been watching to fill the giant dragon-shaped void left by Game of Thrones.
