Game of Thrones had some of the best graphic sceneries in all of television history, shot at a variety of locations. Though the scenes may look beautiful on camera, they were not at all easy to shoot, often having filmed at the most arduous of places. It is common for actors to have a favourite moment from their projects they have worked on, Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington’s memorable scene is a bit peculiar. But we cannot blame him, everyone feels less stressed when they are relieved!
In a recent interview with Sirius XM, the actor famous for playing Jon Snow talked about his sweet memories from the show. He revealed, “I remember shooting up on this incredible glacier in Iceland, and I went off to take a pee, just in… somewhere in the wilds of Iceland. And I just looked out over this glacier and I thought, ‘God, I got the best job in the world.’ And that always sticks out to me because if I’m ever feeling grumpy about my lot, which, believe me, I can do amazingly, I think of that. And I think, ‘Now you’ve got a pretty special job.’”
He continued, “Part of the journey since it finished was just becoming proud of that show, you know, not running away from it and not running away from what it was and who I played in it, but just owning it and being proud of everything about it really.”
Though Harington went through a lot of stress while filming, he did seem to enjoy these moments. What is your favourite scene from Game of Thrones? Tell us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill was very depressed over shaving his head for playing Lord Varys
Game of Thrones had some of the most amazing actors in its cast, and the casting was so on-point that many of the stars became synonymous with the characters they played on-screen. Conleth Hill was so fabulous in his role as Lord Varys, today we can’t even imagine anyone else playing the role of Master of Whispers so perfectly. Even though Hill gained widespread recognition for his character on Game of Thrones, he was forever unhappy about a specific feature of his role. Showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss wanted Varys to be bald, and that made Hill feel really depressed.
In James Hibberd’s novel, Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon, Conleth gave a candid interview in which he revealed shaving his head made him “very depressed.” He confessed to having some initial reluctance about playing Varys, and thought the show would be about “Dungeons and Dragons.” Although originally taping for the role as King Robert, he revealed the producers called him back to read for Lord Varys.
The actor admitted he thought it was “nice bull***t” when the producers said they would come back to him about playing King Robert. When Conleth read for the role of the Master of Whispers, they asked if he could shave his head, to which he revealed he’d never shaved his head before and stated: ”I was very depressed.”
James Hibberd’s novel has revealed various secrets about HBO’s famous fantasy epic previously, such as the show’s botched pilot episode. Do you think Varys would have looked better with silver locks? Tell us in the comments below!
Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke celebrated their Game of Thrones reunion by getting “as drunk as humanly possible”
Game of Thrones was a beautiful journey for the cast and the fans alike. It was a show like no other, breaking records and gaining unprecedented popularity. The cast made lifelong relationships with each other. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke may have played a couple on-screen for a little time on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, they have been great friends behind-the-screens in real life. So we can understand their over-the-top celebration when they finally reunited after a long and busy schedule.
Both Emilia and Jason have been quite busy recently, Emilia with writing her new comic book, and Jason with his new projects such as See Season 2 and the upcoming Aquaman sequel. They were delighted to see each other when they met at Game of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff’s birthday bash, as evident from the picture below.
The 34-year-old actress told PEOPLE Magazine that Momoa, 42, got attendees “as drunk as humanly possible” — and she savoured every single drop. “I mean, I’ve never tried so many different whiskeys in my entire life. There were a couple that was really nice, and there were a couple that was paint stripper, and I literally was like, ‘Yeah I’m gonna down you, get hair on your chest.’ It was funny.”
“When Jay’s in town, you know it’s going down,” she remembered. “He walks into the room and you’re just like, ‘My man.’ It’s almost like a test, every time he sees [me] he’s like, ‘Can I still throw you around the room? Yeah I can.'”

Hannah Waddingham was scared she would start “lactating” while filming ‘Walk of Shame’ on hearing her baby cry
Pregnancy is one of the toughest periods for women. It changes their lives in a way men can’t understand. Especially for single working moms, it gets extremely horrendous. Game of Thrones and Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham juggled both her work and parenting quite perfectly, but even she had her embarrassing moments. While filming the famous ‘Walk of Shame‘ scene on Game of Thrones, she could hear her 8-week old daughter cry from behind the set, and she feared she might lactate during the shoot.
Waddingham told The White Wine podcast, “So my daughter was eight weeks old when I went out there with my friend and had the really embarrassing moment of being in my wimple and nun’s habit. And I could hear my daughter crying, like, offstage, behind the building for that first part of the walk of shame.”
“And I thought, oh my god, I’m going to start lactating through my [clothes]… but thankfully not!”
Waddingham also opened up about the experience of being waterboarded as part of the role on Game of Thrones.
She said, “I was at David Benioff’s birthday, and we were all discussing that because recently, it’s been spoken about in the press that I said that I was waterboarded for 10 hours and it was the worst day of my life other than childbirth.
“What I actually said was, it was next to childbirth, but I would 100% do it again. Because you know that they’re not actually going to kill you.”
