If you were a bit grossed out a couple of weeks ago when Daenerys ate a horse’s heart during a Dothraki ritual, you aren’t alone. Actress Emilia Clarke says she was a bit grossed out as well.
“That was one of those amazing scenes that you get as an actor that there’s just no acting required – at all,” Clarke told New York Magazine. “It was disgusting!”
Clarke explained that the fake heart was a “congealed jam kind of thing”, saying: “They promised me that it would taste similar to a gummy bear and it definitely didn’t.
“On the outtakes, there will be me heaving into a bucket. It’s such a reflex, when you taste something that’s just so revolting, you kind of instantly just want to get rid of it. It’s safe to say that I didn’t eat lunch that day.”
