Two years after having bowed out, Game Of Thrones continues to reveal its secrets. So we discover, for example, that George RR Martin had planned a much more heroic end for Jaime Lannister. Fans of the medieval program had indeed found the fate of Tyrion’s brother to be lukewarm compared to the relief of the character. One of the many criticisms received by hbo fiction which continues, in spite of everything, to be talked about. So, Hannah Waddingham, the interpreter of Septa Unella – the character behind the infamous “Shame” addressed to Cersei – has revealed that her television counterpart must also have another end.
In an interview with Collider, the English actress said: “At the beginning my character was to be raped by La Montagne. But after the many criticisms received following Sansa’s rape, the writers changed their minds”. She will have finally been drowned. A scene that didn’t bother viewers – the character wasn’t quite in the hearts of GoT fans – but which was very unpleasant to shoot. Waddingham admits, in fact, to having spent more than ten hours tied to a table and declares: “With the exception of my childbirth, this is arguably the worst time of my life.” While filming for House of The Dragon has officially started, these confessions keep alive the universe of Game Of Thrones.
