Game of Thrones has had a lot of on-screen awkward moments, but some stick more to the stars than others. We have heard the stars discuss their most loved and most hated scenes from the show from time to time, but in a recent video interview bit, Sophie Turner, who played Sansa, discussed the most embarrassing moment of her career, which occurred on the sets of Game of Thrones. Read on!

The video in question is from Vogue Paris featuring a cross-interview over dinner, with between Sophie and Jessica Chastain, for the promotion of their movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Check the video out, below:

Sophie discussed her most embarrassing on-screen moment, which was a scene from Season 2, episode 7 of Game of Thrones, titled “A Man Without Honor” :

“When I was 13 or 14, I had to get my period onscreen. It was so embarrassing. I had to keep pulling up my dress and the director would [say] ‘Blood, blood,’ and like keep chucking blood on me. They had a camera right there in my crotch.”

Chastain asked her if the director was a man or a woman, but Sophie revealed that girls from the costume department did the job of smearing blood on her:

“So we were good”

Chastain also discussed her own embarrassing moment, which involved calling an actor by their name instead of their character’s name, during a sex scene. Still, seemed like a better bet than a young Sophie having to get blood smeared on herself repeatedly.

Game of Thrones was brutal towards a lot of brave character, but the character that was introduced to us as the wimp — John Bradley‘s Samwell Tarly, somehow survived everything. Not only that, he ended up becoming the Grand Maester of the new realm of men, under King Bran. In a recent interview with Esquire, John Bradley discussed Sam’s ending, and how he ended up the Grand Maester. Read on!

Bradley had been uncertain about whether Sam would survive any of it, and said the ending was what he always wanted for Sam:

“Now he’s the Grand Maester on the small council and he’s using his knowledge and using his unique set of skills, in terms of his academic mind and curiosity, he’s using all of those tools that he has at his disposal to affect the common good and he’s making change. He’s making a difference. That’s the best ending that I could have ever hoped for Sam or even that Sam could have ever hoped for himself. It was beautiful and I hate getting rid of it, it’s just strange to say that because you do feel so firmly connected to the character, you’ve embedded the character. Sometimes, it’s hard to look from the outside in.”

He then talked about how Samwell ended up becoming the Grand Maester:

“There were enough people in Winterfell during the battle planning that Sam’s insight and Sam’s wisdom and Sam’s intellectual capacity was noted by the rest of the people around that table. So they know, that in Episode Six, they have a decision to make. Part of my pride in Sam and part of my hope for Sam would like to believe that they all got together and decided that he would be of use and his input would be valuable in that environment.”

He continued:

“I’d like to think that when they were assembling that team he was seen as somebody that was going to be a very valuable person in that arsenal and a great head to have around that table. And I think that that says a lot about his journey. He was ridiculed and he was worthless and he was cast aside by his family. He was a target of abuse for the rest of the Night’s Watch and everybody else at Castle Black. He’s now in a position where his opinion is being sought. His presence is required to make these big decisions.”

He also said that Bran and Sam’s bond could have also helped him climb the ranks, although deservedly:

“I think Bran and Sam have developed such a close bond by this stage because they went through the whole process of finding out Jon’s parentage. They’re such a formidable team because they’re the only two people in the world who can do what they do because Bran can see things and Sam can interpret them. As soon as Bran became King, Sam—who has never been slow when it came to seeing how he could work a situation to his advantage—he could have gone to see Bran and say “Bran now that we are mates and now that you’re King, remember that time when we found out about Jen’s parents? Well how about you do your old mate a favor and maybe see if the Grand Maester position is available.”

Bradley also commented on Samwell’s idea of democracy, and how he had always been too progressive for the world he was in.

Game of Thrones was everybody and their mother’s favourite show for a decade, so it’s no surprise that when it ended in a less than ideal way, fans were upset. The entangled storylines and the showrunners hurrying up the end by cutting down the episode count resulted in a poorly received Season 8, and at least one member of the cast — Joe Dempsie, a.k.a. Gendry, expected it. Read on!

Dempsie was recently on BBC Radio 5 Live, where he discussed the end of Game of Thrones, and the backlash it faced, which he saw coming. Take a look at the video clip, below:

“I remember saying at the time, I don’t know how well this is going to go down.”@joedempsie who played Gendry in @GameOfThrones, told @TherealNihal how he felt about the #GOT Season 8 finale.

He said:

“When I read the finale, I remember saying at the time, ‘I don’t know how well this is going to go down. It might be the kind of ending that might need to percolate and that maybe, with the passing of time, people might appreciate it a little more.”

Joe also said that he was thrown off by the fact that the fight between the Army of the Dead and the living folk wasn’t the big climax of the show. He then discussed how it was to work on Game of Thrones, and how it was different for him than most others:

“One of the things that struck me when I returned in season seven, was how life had profoundly changed for quite a few people in that cast, in terms of fame and recognition. And it made me really thankful that I wasn’t one of the core group of actors, that really has to carry the weight of this show on their shoulders, and whose faces sell it because it is a hell of a lot of pressure.”

Well, we’re just glad we got to see Gendry return from his voyage. What about you guys? Talk to us in the comments, down below!


Game of Thrones has never really gone for fairness. We saw the most honourable man on the show, Ned Stark, die a traitor’s death after all. However, with the Game of Thrones finale, many fans complained that the deaths could have been better, and Lena Headey agrees. In a recent interview, he said she wanted a better death for her character, Cersei Lannister. Read on!

Talking to The Guardian recently, Headey talked about the finale and her character’s death. Starting off, she was asked if the universal praise for her character made her doubt her acting abilities less. Headey replied:

“No, it makes me doubt myself more. Because you think they must be fucking lying.”

She continued:

“You have to push away the voice that goes, ‘You’re fucking shit, mate’, which is really hard some days.”

Talking about the negative reception of the final season, Headey said:

“I invested as a viewer and I have my favourite characters. And I’ve got a few of my own gripes. But I haven’t sat down drunkly with David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] yet.”

Headey was then asked what she would say to the showrunners when that does happen, to which she replied:

“I will say I wanted a better death.”


Talking about Cersei and Jaime’s death that occurs, quite anti-climatically with a bunch of bricks falling on them, Headey said:

“Obviously you dream of your death. You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn’t have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb.”

Headey also revealed that while she used to get emotional after wrapping on a project earlier in her career, Game of Thrones didn’t hit her that hard and that she is in a group chat with the rest of the cast:

“We’re all on a giant WhatsApp group which is a daily pile-on. It’s hilarious. You can tell who’s been drinking on that one.”
