In a show full of shocking bloody deaths, the demise of Myrcella Baratheon’s Game of Thrones is an unlikely one.
Beauty, the daughter of incestuous brothers and sisters Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)falls victim to Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma)’s poisoned kiss as he seeks revenge for the death of Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal).
Blood gushed from her mouth in the season five finale when she collapsed on the boat next to her biological father.
The death deprived them of any chance of a diplomatic settlement with House Martell of Dorne, with Myrcella due to her marriage to Prince Trystane.
However, it turned out that the show boss had planned the death to happen sooner rather than later.
Nell told MYM Buzz: “I don’t know if I should say this, but what happened initially was they gave me mashed bananas with blood, fake blood, and my brain was supposed to be everywhere on the ship and stuff.
“I was so excited. I don’t like gore but I know they’re like bananas, so I’m fine,” she continued.
She explained that in the end the host David Benioff and DB Weiss chose a more dignified death, adding: “They wanted Myrcella’s death to reflect her life and wanted it to be sweet — which is rare. [Game of] Thrones. “
Nell is currently starring in the Apple TV hit Servant, written by musical king M Night Shyamalan.
She plays Leanne Grayson, a mysterious nanny tasked with taking care of a baby doll named Jericho, whom her mentally ill owner believes is a real child after her death her son.
The suspense series, which also stars Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint, is currently in its fourth season.
Nell recently told Empire: “I don’t know what’s going to happen in season four, nothing, I can’t tell you. We’re going to be filming soon and I don’t know what’s going on. Sometimes, depending on the schedule where we’re going to have episodes at different times, we’re literally going into seasons shooting blindly.”
The film is primarily set inside a single home, with the cast splitting filming time outside of Philadelphia’s real estate and then on four sound stages for interior scenes.
Nell added: “I spend more time in those sound stages than anywhere else on planet earth.”
