Hannah Waddingham received an Emmy for her part as Rebecca on Ted Lasso, but she may be better recognized as Septa Unella, the nun who chased a nude Cersei Lannister through King’s Landing while ringing a bell and shouting “shame” on Game of Thrones.
Speaking with The Zoe Report, Waddingham recalled instances when Game of Thrones fans recognized her, such as when she was in an airport with her 18-month-old child, preparing to travel out to film the sixth season of the program.
She stated, “I am only known as Septa Unella when I am not wearing makeup.” “You can imagine how difficult it was to convince her to drink from her bottle. This guy sitting next to me asked, ‘Am I correct in assuming you can ring my doorbell?’ when I was in full-on mother mode. “I thought to myself, “Oh my God, put some lipstick on next time.”
Waddingham enjoys the role, and she occasionally receives bonuses, such as when flight attendants compliment her on it. “You’re all hunkered down, and they don’t say it in a mean way. They say it in a charmingly cheeky manner, then leave you alone and offer you a delicious drink.”
If you can drink from it, it can’t be all bad.
Hafór Jlus Bjornsson leaves the sport of boxing.
Hafór Jlus Bjornsson, the actor who portrayed Gregor “the Mountain” Clegane in Game of Thrones, has announced his retirement from boxing.
Now, you may be thinking, “I thought he was an actor,” which is true. He is a professional strongman as well. In addition, he has competed in exhibition boxing contests against the likes of Eddie Hall during the previous few years. But no more! “I had a successful run of two and a half years. It was good, because when I initially began, many people did not believe in me, Bjornsson wrote on his YouTube account. “By working hard, I proved many people incorrect and made some people proud. In actuality, I never had any affection for the sport; it was always a chore for me. Because I know how much work goes into the sport, I have great regard for it.”
What then will Bjornsson do? He remarked, “I have two new objectives, two new cats, and I want to shatter one of my world records.” “I’m attempting to break the world record for weight over the bar with 25 kg. My current record is 20 feet 2 inches, so I must surpass that to break my own record.”
I’m actually more interested in the two kitties, but I hope he’s happy no matter what he does.
