While we all know HBO's Game of Thrones has lots of nudity, it still comes as a surprise to hear the rather shocking (if somewhat funny) NSFW thing actress Gemma Whelan had to do for her audition.

Whelan, a British comedic actress, plays Theon Greyjoy’s (Alfie Allen) sister Yara on the hit fantasy series.

In a recent video interview with Fringe in 5 with Russell Kane, the actress explained what she had to do for her Game of Thrones audition. Hint: A chair was used, and it's a bit raunchy. 

Have a look at the interview (it's all very interesting, but the really good bit starts at about 3 minutes 55 seconds in):

Are you at all shocked about what Gemma Whelan had to do for her Game of Thrones audition?
