In episode 3 of the show’s second season, Rhaenyra Targaryen, played by Emma D’Arcy, sneaks into King’s Landing, dressed as a Septa. Waddingham took to the show’s official Instagram handle and commented:

That’s MY outfit!!! Get it off!!!!

Waddingham referenced how Rhaenyra’s disguise was a rehash of her character’s outfit from the original series. The Ted Lasso actress’ comment is endearing particularly because Waddingham had an unpleasant experience working on the original series.

During a talk show appearance, Waddingham admitted to being waterboarded for almost 10 hours while filming the series. As a result, the actress admitted that she experienced chronic claustrophobia for some time. Hence, it is pleasant to learn that Waddingham sees the funny side of things despite her unpleasant experience.
