Game of Thrones Actors Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Memories Dearest to Their Hearts

Well, there’s no need to say
anything about the final season of Game of Thrones. Perhaps some of you have
already managed to see the first series and are impatiently waiting for the new
one. Do not worry, there will be no spoilers. On the contrary, instead of
theorizing and attempting to predict the future of this series, we will plunge
into the past. More precisely into the actors’ memories.
We at Bright Side adore Game
of Thrones and were thrilled to find out the actors’ favorite scenes, memories
of their days on set, moments that shocked them the most, and some other
interesting facts. And we can’t wait to tell you so you can share our emotions.
1. Kit Harington (Jon Snow)

Kit’s favorite day on set was
in Iceland. He was surprised by the beauty of the area. In addition, they
filmed a scene with Rose Leslie, when Jon Show couldn’t kill Ygritte. She is
the actress that he was most comfortable acting with. And who, as we all know,
became his wife later.

His death became, for Kit, the
most shocking moment in the series. But he knew that everything was going to be
ok since he hasn’t gotten a call from producers confirming the death. We
weren’t so lucky when we were trying to figure out if Jon Snow would be alive.
We were shocked and nervous.
2. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys
Targaryen)

Emilia fell off a horse on her
first day on set. Being a real actress, she tried to act while falling. Now she
can look back and laugh when she remembers this moment, but at the time, she
cried and asked them to stop filming.

Emilia likes the moment when
her character was getting the Unsullied. She was able to be a bad girl for the
first time and to be honest, we also like her for being so cool.
3. Lena Headey (Cersei
Lannister)

Lena’s favorite scene is the
one in which Cersei and Robert Baratheon talk about their marriage. She
believes that this moment turned out to be touching and showed these heroes
from another side. Really, who could expect that these 2 people would be so
outspoken?
4. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
(Jaime Lannister)

The scene where Jaime and Brienne
are sitting in the bathtub is one Nikolaj’s favorites. He liked to shoot it,
but not because they were sitting in the bath naked, as some might think. This
scene showed a new side of his character’s personality.

The most fun scene for Nikolaj
was the one with the loot train attack. He liked being on the horse all day and
was amazed with the beauty of the location where the filming took place. He felt
lucky to be able to participate in such a grandiose shooting.
5. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion
Lannister)

Peter never really wanted to
star in a fantasy series. He prefers to portray real life. However, his opinion
has changed. Peter believes that this show is one of the most realistic because
of the relationship between the heroes, even if dragons live alongside them.

6. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark)

Sophie’s favorite day on set
was the reunion day of Sansa and Arya. She remembers it as the funniest day.
The girls constantly laughed and were glad that they were together again. Just
like us when we saw it on screen.

The most shocking moment for
Sophie was the death of Ned Stark. Remember how unexpected it was? And until
the last moment we didn’t believe that it would even happen. At that moment,
Sophie realized that all the characters were in jeopardy and that even the life
of a favorite character could end.
7. Maisie Williams (Arya
Stark)

When talking about the first
day on set Maisie remembers throwing a pie at Sophie’s face. She was asked to
get the pie right on the cheek. These memories make her laugh. And we totally
understand. Food fights always bring fun.

We’re hardly telling you a
secret when we reveal that Maisie and Sophie are the best of friends off set.
Therefore, it’s not surprising that her most fun day on the set was a reunion
with her serial sister. The girls had a lot of fun that day and rode on Bran’s
wheelchair.

8. Isaac Hempstead Wright
(Bran Stark)

For Isaac, one of the coolest
scenes is the moment when he stood next to the Night King and the army of the
dead. There were a lot of walk-ons with zombie makeup and a fan was spraying
snow the whole time.

The moment with Hodor was
shocking to Isaac. It was hard for him to believe it was happening. This scene
was very emotional and revealed the meaning of Hodor’s stay with Bran.

9. Gwendoline Christie
(Brienne of Tarth)

Gwendoline was very nervous
before the first meeting with Nikolaj. She entered the truck to meet him and
saw him sitting in a chair. He just looked at her from head to toe and asked
dryly, “Yes?” Looking at their relationship now, it’s become clear that
Gwendoline wasn’t offended. The actors constantly laugh together and tease each
other.

10. Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont)

Iain’s favorite day was when
they shot the gladiator contest. His little girl was there and announced the
beginning and the end of the shooting. He was also impressed by the scale of
the set decoration and how real it looked.

11. Rory McCann (Sandor “The
Hound” Clegane)


Game of Thrones Actors Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Memories Dearest to Their Hearts
Rory’s favorite day was
shooting the fight between the Hound and Brienne. The actors had prepared for
this for a long time and we can’t deny that it was totally worth it. The fight
was impressive.

Rory was shocked by the Red
Wedding. He only read his part in that episode, and did not know what was
happening to the others. He was very upset when he saw that mind-blowing
moment. It even made him cry.

12. John Bradley (Samwell
Tarly)


Game of Thrones Actors Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Memories Dearest to Their Hearts
The Fist of the First Men
scene is John’s favorite shooting day. They filmed it in Iceland, in an
incredibly beautiful location. Both the landscape and the friends made that day
special.

On the first day, John had to
shoot a fight scene. Or rather, his poor fighting skills. And this was only his
fourth hour in front of the camera in his entire life. The first 3 hours were
in drama school.

13. Liam Cunningham (Davos
Seaworth)


Game of Thrones Actors Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Memories Dearest to Their Hearts
The strangest scene in which
Liam has ever taken part was the moment with the shadow birth. They filmed it
in a cold cave. It was weird, but Liam liked what he saw on the monitor.
According to him, it looked like a painting.
Game of Thrones Actors Reveal Behind-the-Scenes Memories Dearest to Their Hearts
Liam likes the battle of the
Blackwater, especially its visual aspect. And we completely agree with him. The
scene was spectacular and tense.

Bonus: What GoT actors will
miss?


The actors say they will miss
each other and the whole team after the show ends. They have become more than
just a crew. They are like family. All together they claim that they were lucky
enough to work with wonderful people and they made us feel lucky to see one of
the greatest shows ever on TV. So with tears in our eyes, we can say that we
will miss this family too.
