Hannah Waddingham is Clarifying What She Said About The 'Game of Thrones' Waterboarding Scene

Hannah Waddingham made major headlines earlier this year while speaking about the waterboarding scene that she was put through on Game of Thrones.

Now, in a new interview with The Talk, the 46-year-old Ted Lasso star is revealing the detail that not many fans or outlets picked up on.

In the original interview, Hannah had described the scene as the worst day of her life.

“I was strapped to a wooden table with proper big straps for 10 hours,” Hannah told Collider. “And definitely, other than childbirth, it was the worst day of my life. Because Lena was uncomfortable pouring liquid in my face for that long, and I was beside myself.”

“But in those moments you have to think, do you serve the piece and get on with it or do you chicken out and go, ‘No, this isn’t what I signed up for, blah, blah, blah?’”

Now, Hannah is explaining what she shared again.

“What I said at the end of it that wasn’t picked up on, was I would 100% do it again,” she shared on the program. “Because being given the chance to be on something like Game Of Thrones, you have to go there.”

Hannah added, “That’s why the show is so magnificent, because it brings everybody out, it takes everyone to the nth degree of their emotions. And that’s why it was so successful because you believe it, you believe the gore and you believe the tragedy and the drama.”

Here’s what Lena had to share about that particular scene.
