Septa Unella probably wouldn’t approve of this.
During her Sept. 29 physical appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Ted Lasso star (and recent Emmy winner) Hannah Waddingham reflected on her time enjoying the viciously devout nun on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Waddingham’s position on the cultural phenomenon arrived up after host Kelly Clarkson declared her like for the actress, and the tyrannical character she played.
“I also beloved you in Video game of Thrones,” the American Idol winner observed. “Very first of all, I listened to that you saved the bell from ‘Shame, Shame.'”
“Sure,” Waddingham verified.
Clarkson was, of training course, referring to the popular scene involving Waddingham’s alter ego, Septa Unella, in which she paraded a bare Cersei (Lena Headey) by way of the streets of King’s Landing. So, it isn’t stunning that Clarkson identified as that prop “variety of messed up” to have.
As for Waddingham? It was the ideal send-off present.
“That is when you know your character is actually dead,” she quipped, “when they give you the hero point. ‘And thank you quite significantly and goodbye.'”
