Lena Headey has dealt with super fans of "Game of Thrones" for years, but the fandom recently turned a bit awkward at one of the most inopportune times: while she was breastfeeding her newborn baby girl.
The actress spoke about the less-than-tasteful encounter while appearing on the James Corden show on Wednesday night.
Her daughter, she said, had jaundice so they had to keep her on a BiliBed.
"I was trying to breast feed [my daughter] to calm her down," she said. "And…this is a lot of info, everyone. So when you're in the early stages of breastfeeding…it takes a little bit of hand milking."
Lena's man, she does on to say, couldn't do the trick, so a nurse, who had previously told Lena that she was a big fan of GOT, asked if she need to help out.
"And I said yeah, because I was about to punch him, because it was like milking a goat," Lena joked. "I was like 'no, no: not a cow.'"
It seems that the "lovely nurse" couldn't separate the Lena from her character, Cersei Lannister, who was last seen on the show being paraded naked through town while villagers pelted her with filth, all while Septa Unella shouted "Shame! Shame! Shame!"
"[The nurse] came around and sat next to me, squeezed my nipple and went, 'Shame,'" Lena said, adding that she couldn't really react since the nurse was holding her nipple. "And then she said it again and then I saw her go, 'I'm sorry, I can't believe I said that!'"
The actress also told the "Late Late Show" host that people have been "good and slightly judgmental" about her infamous walk of shame at the end of the show's fifth season.
"There have been people who have criticized me for not being the naked body, which was a choice of many choices," she said.
James, though, seemingly can't wait for the newest season, showing a sketch that inserts his face into the Hall of Faces. In the skit, James humorously riles the feathers of the GOT stars in the Hall of Faces by trying to get them to play a game and order pizza.
And, just to keep the intrigue alive, Jon Snow doesn't speak in the skit… So, maybe he is dead after all?
