Sometimes, the actors just need to say something. Anything. That's a lot of pressure, especially when you're under stress. So from time to time you say weird things.
Jacob Anderson, for example. Recently, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, appeared in Jimmy Kimmel live to discuss the completion of the final season of game of Thrones, and revealed that Anderson, who plays Gray Worm, had a particular stranger during the Battle of Winterfell.
"At any given moment," said Weiss, "Miguel [Sapochnik], the director, starts shouting at Jacob to improvise something in valyrio, shout to your troops in valyrio. And Jacob was so tired and so delirious and so agitated that all he could think about shouting was: "Mike Pence! Mike Pence! Mike Pence!" So in one of those scenes in which Jacob shouts and points out, What he was saying was doubled, but what he was really saying was: "Mike Pence! Mike Pence! "
For a series that once featured a George W. Bush support chief in a compromising situation, this is not the most ridiculously political program that has been seen on the margins. My question, however: how do you say Mike Pence in Valyrian?
I mean, we already know how to say: "Free Snyder's cut!" What else do you need to know?[h/t Comic Book Resources]
