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.

You could practically cut the sexual tension between Yara (Gemma Whelan) and Ellaria (Indira Varma) on this week's episode of Game of Thrones, "Stormborn", with a knife, but apparently it was never meant to be quite as hot as it was.

Just before the climactic naval battle that left Daenerys's fleet in tatters, Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand were on the verge of joining the sea-level club.

"It wasn't directed that we would kiss", Whelan told EW.

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. She just got done calling you her protector, dude! "I mean, come on!" "Gemma had hurt her back so there were some stunts she couldn't do", Varma told the publication.

Well, according to Varma there was one person who wasn't so keen - Whelan's stunt double, who had to stand in as the ship they were in was rocked by Euron Greyjoy's (Pilou Asbæk) attack. That was quite amusing, bless her.

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 said she loves the tone of the moment.

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. "Like that look from Yara to Theon (Alfie Allen) that says 'a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do'".
