Some of these tales are funny, while others are bound to drop your jaw. Without further ado, here’s a look at five interesting anecdotes shared by the cast of GoT.
Emilia Clarke CRIED on her first day:
She might be the Khaleesi aka Daenerys Targaryen we all adore, but did you know that Emilia had an embarrassing first day on the sets of Game of Thrones. The actress began her shoot by filming scenes on a horse, for one of the many travel sequences from the first season. During one shot, Emilia almost fell from her horse in Belfast, after which she begged them to stop filming. While she quickly managed to calm herself down, the actress turned around to see the entire crew looking at her and she just broke down. Hear the entire story right from the horse’s mouth:
Maisie Williams flicked Pigeon Pie on her first day:
Who could forget that hilarious scene where Arya Stark threw Pigeon Pie at Sansa Stark when Lannister visited Winterfell? Turns out, that was the very first scene Maisie shot for the show. What a fun way to start her journey! Sorry, Sophie.
Sophie Turner and Maisie William’s favourite scene:
We loved watching Sophie and Maisie together. Turns out, they too enjoyed each other’s company the most. As a result, the duo’s favourite scene from the entire premiere season was when Arya and Sansa reunited.
Sophie Turner’s most shocking day on sets:
While we know her favourite day, Sophie has also revealed her most shocking day on sets of GoT and it dates back to season one. The actress revealed that the episode where Ned Stark was beheaded stunned her the most.
Kit Harington’s love story – on and off camera:
The Jon Snow actor married his Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie last year. The two met on the sets of this epic show and fell in love. Turns out, Kit’s most memorable scene was his first shot with Rose. Awww!
While everyone has their own memories of this legendary show, the cast remembers one thing in common: singing and playing music between takes.
