The Targaryens are right in the heart of a huge storm that is developing in the Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. Even though it ended tragically, the Targaryen wedding ceremony in Season 1 Episode 5 was as grand as one could ever dream. However, it wasn’t as fun to film for the actor who played Joffrey Lonmouth, Solly McLeod.

Solly McLeod was sick while filming Joffrey’s death

In his recent chat with Decider, Mcleod recalled filming the intense scene, “I had a cold when we were filming that scene and I was kind of bunged up — but it wasn’t COVID because we were tested — but I did have a cold and it hurt to move my head too quickly. So I was there being punched, having to move my head. I didn’t have to act very much to be uncomfortable.”

McLeod also went on to praise his co-star, Fabien Frankel, who plays Criston Cole, “Me and [Fabien] had a nice kind of relationship when we were on set. After every time I got up from being punched to death, we have a big hug in front of everyone. Like, ‘it’s all good.’ You just have to do that thing otherwise it starts getting, it’s like, ‘Do you really hate me?’”
