Game of Thrones features the most gruesome, unpredictable, and intense deaths of any show in history. Whether death comes as a result of a character’s survival, ignorance, or retribution, it’s not pretty. Throw in a little bondage, and death becomes downright hideous.
The third episode of season seven, titled “The Queen’s Justice”, found Ellaria Sand in the cusps of death, after she was chained to a wall on the orders of Cersei Lannister. As if awaiting a long and excrutiating death could be any worse, watching your last surviving daughter wither away right in front of you, unable to offer her comfort in any way, might be a smidge worse.
Actresses Lena Headey (Cersei) and Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand) discuss the intense scene in a behind-the-scenes look into the episode. Joined by episode director Mark Mylod, they talk about the atmosphere in the first day filming, prop malfunctions, character insights, and more!
