Lena Headey describes shooting Septa Unella’s ‘waterboarding’ scene on ‘Game of Thrones’ as a ‘really tough day’

Hannah Waddingham was scared she would start “lactating” while filming ‘Walk of Shame’ on hearing her baby cry

True horrors reside within the deepest corners of the twisted human mind. Game of Thrones gave us a glimpse of what torture meant in the medieval period. Fans of the show still get flooded by the memories of Cersei’s torture whenever they hear the word ‘Shame’. And how can anyone forget the dreadful character behind that voice, Septa Unella, played by Hannah Waddingham. About a month ago, Waddingham confessed her waterboarding scene was the second-worst experience of her life. Recently, in an interview with Insider, Lena Headey (Cersei) shared her thoughts about the scene.

Lena explained, “She had a really s—t time doing that scene. I adore Hannah, she’s one of my favourite humans.”

Headey chalks up shooting that specific scene to the need of the production to be “authentic,” but admits it was a “really, really tough day. ”

“People have different limits,” she said. “People will go to different places. And some people will be like, ‘I don’t want to f—ing put myself in that position.’ I totally respect whatever your boundaries are, but Hannah was a trooper. That was a long day of prune juice in your face.”

Headey admitted to Insider that at a certain point while shooting the scene she purposely stopped aiming towards Waddingham’s mouth when she poured the wine.

“I was like, I’m just going to do a light salad dressing drizzle around her nun’s wimple,” she said.

Lena and Hannah are really good friends in real life. What do you think of the waterboarding scene? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Hafthor Björnsson (The Mountain) and Eddie Hall have been long-time rivals now, ever since they faced each other in the World’s Strongest Man championship. Their upcoming fight has been dubbed ‘The Heaviest Boxing Match in History’. Every competitive sportsman is involved in taunting their opponent to generate hype for their big event. And the Mountain is full of them for his rival, Hall.

Thor Bjornsson has promised to stop Eddie Hall just like he did Devon Larratt recently when the pair finally fight next year, unless the Brit begins training harder. Bjornsson confirmed during an exclusive chat with Mirror Fighting that the bout will take place in March 2022, with an exact date and venue to be confirmed in the coming months.

Hall, a fellow World’s Strongest Man winner, is still nursing a severe bicep injury that forced him to pull out of the scheduled fight that was supposed to happen in September this year. Instead, Bjornsson took on former arm-wrestling champion Larratt, who despite looking good for a fighter with five weeks of training, was easily defeated within minutes.

Bjornsson, speaking to Mirror Fighting in his role as a Reign Body Fuel ambassador, says he has set his sights solely on his old rival Hall.

“March is the plan as of today,” he said. “Let’s just hope his bicep heals up well as it should and we can do the fight. From what I’ve seen, it doesn’t look promising for him, he has a hard time holding his hands in the right position. He fights with his hands down and leaves his head open and if he does that then it’s going to be a rough night for him, my reach and my jab are going to hurt him. But what he is posting doesn’t mean that he’s going to use that style, maybe he’ll come in with a completely different style, we don’t know, so we just have to wait and see.”

Who will win, Thor Bjornsson or Eddie Hall? Let us know in the comments below!

Kit Harington passed on a superhero role while filming Game of Thrones: ‘I don’t want it'

Kit Harington is a household name today, thanks to his success as Game of ThronesJon Snow. Jon Snow was a selfless, righteousness and brave hero in the series, with a tone of seriousness in his voice. He would almost always relinquish any honours or titles he received in the series, saying, “I don’t want it.” It seems like Kit Harington has said his famous line quite often, off-screen as well.

The former Game of Thrones star told Total Film magazine he passed up on an unknown superhero role while filming for Game of Thrones. He said, “You know, the comic-book and superhero world has called once before, and I didn’t like the role and the part and the time to do it.”

Harington revealed. “So I turned it down. And then this one [in Eternals] felt right to me. I liked that the character they were offering was not necessarily an Eternal. He was human. I did like that. I felt that I could do something with that, that he came with all these human faults. So it was the character that drew me to it, as well as it being the MCU, and how exciting.”

“I won’t mention what it was, but yeah, there was one other [superhero movie] that I did turn down a while ago,” Harington said. “It was a while ago, as well – just because it didn’t feel like the right thing at the right time. And I think I was right to. My head was very in the Jon Snow world then.”
