He says of his creative process : "I remember there was this one scene where a dude was talking to himself and I was like, why don't we add two naked ladies Let's just say, the scene started working. In an interview with the Empire podcast, Marshall described the surreal experience of "one of the exec producers leaning over your shoulder going 'You can go full front, you know'.
I represent the pervert side of the audience, and I'm saying I want full frontal nudity in this scene, so you go ahead and do it.

We'd like to say "and the executive producer's name? Adam Friedberg," but since Marshall wants to continue working in the industry, he didn't deign to name names. Still, you can't prove us wrong. One of the unavoidable issues with so much nudity in the series is the logistics of nudity behind the scenes.
Though everyone involved is a professional, sometimes it's just unavoidably funny. Pedro "Oberyn" Pascal discussed how, during one of the orgy scenes, one of the actresses stayed disrobed between takes. This makes a lot of psychological sense, as repeatedly robing and disrobing in front of everyone could be more uncomfortable and lewd than just staying nude while waiting for the crew to sort their stuff out.
Pascal described his amusement at having a naked person wandering around the green room during long breaks, where she spent the time waiting by playing Words With Friends with show creator David Benioff, and sitting next to a visibly uncomfortable Charles Dance while he tried to concentrate on his script. If only we all had Charles Dance's problems. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has a similar philosophy on nudity as part of the job. I've seen Mark Addy. And Lena We do that at the read-through. We just strip naked and read the script. Meanwhile, Kit Harington had to spend a lot of time lying naked on a slab as the recently deceased Jon Snow, being washed by Melisandre in preparation for his resurrection.
Carice van Houten, who plays Melisandre, didn't make things any less awkward for him. This was the period of filming when the return of Jon Snow was supposed to be a massive secret and he was referred to as "LC" on set. It technically meant "Lord Commander," but Houten decided to turn it into an acronym for something much more amusing and rude.
Entertainment Weekly couldn't print it, but Jezebel could. We can't say what it is, but you know what it is. One of the great things about A Song of Ice and Fire is the detail in which Martin describes the food of his imaginary world, from the Mediterranean-influenced haute cuisine of King's Landing to the spiced locusts of Slaver's Bay. Don't read his books when hungry is what we're saying. But portraying this in the show often means the actors have to eat a lot in certain scenes, which is difficult with multiple takes.
Sansa Stark is famous for her love of lemon cakes, but it took a bit out of poor Sophie Turner. According to actress Kate Dickie, who played Aunt Lysa, during the filming of a Season 4 scene featuring the two, the emotional shifts were so sudden and complex, the scene had to be shot many times, and Turner had to eat an unreasonable number of lemon cakes in the process. In that season's DVD commentary, Turner revealed her disgust with fans sending her lemon cakes because, "I hate lemon cakes. I can't hate a cake more than lemon cakes, and I had to eat like 50 of [them].
Rory McCann, meanwhile, suffered with fake ale.
It took between takes to nail the scene where Hound takes Polliver's drink, with McCann downing a flagon of food coloring-spiked water each time. Immediately after they accepted the last take, McCann ran outside and threw up , which makes you wonder why he didn't just drink real ale the whole time, if he was going to do that. In one scene, they're required to eat some gruel in the Castle Black mess hall, so evil production designer Gemma Jackson made it as disgusting as possible, and didn't tell them. Altin refused to eat it entirely, and Stanley made a great effort but couldn't bring himself to swallow.
Exactly what Jackson did to make it so disgusting is unknown, but considering they were filming in Iceland, home of urine-fermented shark and sour lamb testicles , we can certainly speculate. As bad as the above experiences were, they don't compare with the suffering endured by Emilia Clarke, during the scene when Daenerys eats a stallion's heart to prove her worthiness as a Dothraki. Clarke was actually eating an edible prop heart she had been assured would taste like Gummi Bears.
Clarke described it instead as "sort of a congealed jam kind of thing.

On the outtakes, there will be me heaving into a bucket. It's such a reflex, when you taste something that's just so revolting, you kind of instantly just want to get rid of it. It's safe to say that I didn't eat lunch that day. Propmaster Gordon Fitzgerald designed the fake heart to have just the right look and consistency.
We settled on the same mature of gelatin gummy bears are made of and it worked wonderfully — right up until the moment Emilia almost threw up. What's worse was, the heart had to be given regular injections to stay moist, involving fake blood with the vague taste of bleach. In the end, Clarke was covered in the sticky stuff from head to toe, and kept adhering to everything she touched for a long time after the scene was shot. In fact, she disappeared from the set for a while due to it — she was stuck to her toilet seat. After all that, it makes us wonder if it wouldn't have been easier and less disgusting to just have Emilia Clarke eat a real horse's heart.
As far as we know, there are no bananas in Westeros. Maybe in some weird corner of Dorne or something, but we really haven't seen a whole lot of our favorite characters dining on banana cream pie after they're done tucking into those spiced locusts, so we're going to say bananas are a rare commodity.

That makes "banana" the perfect code word to use on the set of Game of Thrones because it's not likely to be the sort of word that might randomly show up in a script. Stunt coordinator Rowley Irlam told Entertainment Weekly that everyone involved in a major battle sequence or potentially dangerous stunts knows to use "banana" as a safe word.

And based on the way he pulls off the whole smoldering thing, Kit Harington is very aware of his status as the handsomest guy on the show. Now, if you were a showrunner for a series that featured a smolderingly handsome dude who is acutely aware of how smolderingly handsome he is, would you knock him down a couple pegs if you got the opportunity?
Of course you would. In Season 1, Entertainment Weekly says Harington got a fake script for the episode where he uses fire to protect Lord Commander Mormont from a wight. In the fake script, it isn't just the wight that burns, Jon gets caught in the flames, too, and the scene ends like this: "When the fire is finally out, we see by torchlight that all of Jon's hair has burnt down to the scalp. The skin on the top half of his face has been melted in the extreme heat, blistered and pustulant. Jon smiles, his teeth shining brightly in his destroyed face. Mormont, sickened, has to look away.
Harington, ever the professional, arrived for the shoot, and Dan Weiss explained that HBO wanted to do something about the fact that his character was "too Harry Potter. Poor Theon. No other Game of Thrones character has suffered quite the same horrors and humiliations, and no other actor has faced quite the same challenges in bringing a character to life.

Alfie Allen had to transition from arrogant to broken to redeemed, and that takes some real acting chops, mental gymnastics, and possibly even some actual emotional distress. Even so, when producers were trying to decide who to torment with a stupid prank, for some reason they picked Alfie Allen because he hadn't already been through enough, apparently. Granted, this was before Reek so most of the character torment was in the future. Perhaps they were just warming him up?
Anyway, according to Entertainment Weekly , producers sent Allen a fake Season 2 finale script. In the script, Bran Stark stabs Theon in the heart and reclaims Winterfell. We're not sure what producers expected, but it probably wasn't this: "I thought it was cool," Allen told Entertainment Weekly. Then they had to make it clear to me later on it was all a joke. Sansa and Arya are sisters, but they mostly dislike each other. We've seen them come together in recent episodes, but that contentious relationship goes back a long way. So how do Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams feel about each other in real life?
Well, they don't dislike each other, that's for sure. And when they're on set, they aren't above pranking everyone with some pretend romance. Williams told Glamour that she doesn't expect she and Turner will ever be reunited on screen. We'll call that more of an odd-funny than a haha-funny.
Embark on a journey through the city of the Iron Throne
We're glad you love each other in real life, though. Is there a single person in the whole world who wouldn't sit on the Iron Throne, you know, if it were right there and Cersei Lannister wasn't already sitting on it? Because even if you don't watch Game of Thrones , even if you have no idea what the Iron Throne is or what it represents, the thing is cool. In fact it's more than just cool. It's awesome, it's badass, and it's a freaking work of art. Anyone who sits on it is going to look like a king.
You could put a chihuahua on the Iron Throne and it would look like the enemy-smiting army-commanding king of all dogs. And cats, why not? According to NBC , though, yes. Yes, there actually is one person who turned down the opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne, and it was actual royalty: Elizabeth II, Queen of England.
Elizabeth, are you saying you're too good for the Iron Throne? Maybe it doesn't sparkle enough?
Millions of people would give anything to sit on that thing and you were all, "No thanks, where's my tea. Well, there are some photos of the Queen standing next to the Iron Throne, anyway. But who are we kidding? No one wants to see the Queen standing next to the Iron Throne. It was like the world's most amazing photo op, and we got nothing.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones has been pretty over the top in terms of security, but the show's secrets have always been closely guarded. In recent years there haven't been any paper scripts, for example, because it's too easy for scripts to get lost, stolen, or otherwise leaked. Sophie Turner told DigitalSpy that the actors would get their pages on an app the day before shooting.
It's tighter than the White House security.
