Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham reveals the original and more disturbing fate of Cersei’s Torturer




True horrors reside in the deepest corners of the twisted human mind. Game of Thrones gave 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. In a recent episode of Collider’s Ladies Night, she revealed the original fate of her character on Game of Thrones.

She revealed, “She was meant to be raped by The Mountain. I think they’d had so many complaints about the rape of Sansa that they chose not to go with it.”

I think they possibly changed it when I was mid-air flying to Belfast because suddenly I got sent these new sides that said that I would need a wetsuit top. And I thought they’d sent me the wrong bits. Sure enough, when I got there, I was then put in a wetsuit top and I was like, ‘Because?’ And they went, ‘Oh, it’s waterboarding instead.’”


“And there I was strapped to a wooden table with proper big straps for ten hours. Definitely, other than childbirth, it was the worst day of my life.”
