Interestingly, she didn’t share the whole face of her child and continued to share photos where the child was not looking into the camera. Perhaps it was a conscious decision to protect the privacy of her daughter.

Talking about her favorite part of Game of Thrones, Gemma said,

“Probably the ones with very beautiful, majestic coastlines, because it’s just so extraordinary to behold. The Antrim coast is phenomenally beautiful. To think you’re at work and then be on this beautiful coastline is quite pinch-worthy sometimes – it’s a real privilege. I think we all realise how lucky we are when we’re doing it. Every day is enjoyable on Game of Thrones for me, but when you get a nice view as well it’s a bonus!

She also spoke of the character she played as Yara,

“She’s just a glorious character to play. She’s strong, and front-footed, and knows her mind, is apologetic but sensitive, family-oriented but not saccharine. She’s just brilliant! I think she speaks for herself really. She’s very, very likeable for all sorts of good feminist reasons.”

The other roles such as Hannah Murray, Ellie Kendrick, Kit Harington also played a great and significant role in Game of Thrones.
