Gasping for breath, drowning in water is one of the most common nightmares people experience in their dreams. One Game of Thrones actress had to go through that in real, on set, for an excruciating 10 hours. Hannah Waddingham, who played Septa Unella on the show, was strapped to a table, to be tortured by Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister. She described her harrowing experience in a recent episode of Collider’s Ladies Night.

She described filming the scene as her second most dreadful experience, right after childbirth. However, she’d gladly do it again, she validated her point speaking to The Talk in a recent interview.

What I said at the end of it that wasn’t picked up on, as I would 100% do it again,” she shared on the program. “Because being given the chance to be on something like Game Of Thrones, you have to go there.”

Hannah added, “That’s why the show is so magnificent, because it brings everybody out, it takes everyone to the nth degree of their emotions. And that’s why it was so successful because you believe it, you believe the gore and you believe the tragedy and the drama.”

She also talked about how her character, Septa Unella’s fate on the show was different from the original script. What do you think of the waterboarding scene? Talk to us in the comments below!
