Emma Thompson sat down on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss playing Miss Trunchbull in Matilda the Musical.

During the interview, a clip of Thompson singing "Smell of Rebellion" from the film was revealed.

"That last note, my legs were shaking because I was on top of that 80 foot structure with really nothing but a small wire holding me to the thing and I thought, 'Please don't.' But there's nothing you can do. You just hit the note and go for it," Thompson said to Fallon.
