We Need To Talk About Theon Greyjoy On "Game Of Thrones"

We Need To Talk About Theon Greyjoy On

Not every moment that happens on Game of Thrones comes straight from the script. However, that is apparently not the case for some moments that make the show, including the kiss that took place between Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand near the end of this past episode.

"It wasn't directed that we would kiss", Gemma told Entertainment Weekly. It just seemed like something we should do. But you can't really blame her.

From the very first season, the Mother of Dragons and the (now) King in the North have been flung to the furthest corners of Westeros, where each have had to overcome huge odds to become leaders of two very different armies. And who wouldn't want to kiss Indira [Varma]? I mean, come on!'

Apparently, Whelan's double ended up having to do a good bit of the kissing given an injury that Gemma had coupled with the rigors of the scene, and that added to the insane experience of it being shot.

'Gemma had hurt her back so there were some stunts she couldn't do, ' Indira explained. "So I had to start kissing this poor stunt double and she was so terrified!"

Think about it - if he had rushed at Euron or begged for Yara's life, the insane man would have taken great pleasure in hurting or killing her before Theon's eyes. She's used to falling over and being attacked and all the stunts, but to be kissed by an actress was a bit beyond her'.

Whelan added: "I think it's a wonderful scene and amusing as well - like that look from Yara to Theon that says a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do..."

This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones, which I guess I spoiled in the headline but I'm not sorry about it because I'm channeling Arya Stark right now and she's never sorry for anything.
