Game of Thrones with Gemma Whelan

It’s not long now before it’s time to return to Westeros… winter is coming! As excitement mounts for the return of Game of Thrones to our small screens, I caught up with Gemma Whelan, who stars as Yara Greyjoy in the series.

Check out the video to see Gemma chat about her first impressions of the series, playing a strong female character, working with on-screen brother and father Alfie Allen and Patrick Malahide, shooting on location, what it’s like wearing Yara’s costumes, and her favourite moments from Seasons 1 and 2.

Gemma also talks about her stand-up comedy including her next gigs on 7 & 8 February at the Leicester Square Theatre in her show Chastity Butterworth And The Spanish Hamster.

Season 2 of Game of Thrones is on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Download from 4 March. Season 3 of Game of Thrones is on HBO from 31 March and Sky Atlantic from 1 April.
