‘Hoping they hadn’t,’ says the Game of Thrones star of Ted Lasso’s character.
Hannah Waddingham of GAME OF THRONES stunned viewers when she joined the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso last year. However, with the comedy series now in its second season, the star has expressed concerns over her character’s safety ahead of the season’s launch.
Ted Lasso was an unexpected smash series in 2020, and fans were eagerly anticipating its comeback on Apple TV+. As the touching series continues to steal people’ hearts around the world, former Game of Thrones actor Hannah Waddingham discussed her concerns about her character Rebecca’s representation in season two, as well as why she saw potential in the series from the start.
Waddingham’s portrayal of Septa Unella in HBO’s Game of Thrones scared many.
Unella was a member of the Most Devout, the Faith of the Seven’s ruling council, and is most known for punishing Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) for her misdeeds.
Waddingham, on the other hand, decided to try her hand at comedy in 2020 when she joined up for Ted Lasso.
The actress recently opened out about her time on the show, as well as her concerns over her character Rebecca’s portrayal in season two.
She admitted that she was “very anxious” that Rebecca’s story arc had ended in season one and that her character had nowhere to go in season two, but that she was “hoping they [the authors]hadn’t” made the abrupt adjustment.
Rebecca was now a “fully together” person, according to the celebrity, who told Town and Country magazine that she had potential to improve.
Despite substantial shifts in Rebecca’s relationship with Ted (Jason Sudeikis), Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt), and the rest of the Diamond Dogs in season one, the actress was overjoyed that Rebecca was still “a hit mess with guys.”
Ted Lasso’s writers have chosen to emphasize on Rebecca’s problems at work and in her personal life in season two.
“I love how you can look at her and say, ‘Oh, she’s a boss bitch.’
Waddingham continued, “But from the other angle, you’d be like, ‘Oh, Rebecca.'”
This season, Rebecca’s relationship with the players will be a major priority, especially because the team is dealing with a number of ties and changes within the group.
Rebecca has grown a lot from the beginning of the story, when she was Ted’s unknown. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
