I'm enjoying 'Sex Education' on Netflix. A gem of a show, funny, touching and with a terrific soundtrack.
Spotted in minor roles:

DeObia Oparei (Areo Hotah)
Samantha Spiro (Melessa Tarly)
Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella)

I tried to find a clip of N or M where Hannah Waddingham played "blonde assassin" but no luck. I'm posting a link to an episode from a BBC radio series The Pillow Book. There was a real lady Shonegun (sp) who did write a Pillow Book though the drama series was of course fiction. The first series dates back to 2008 and a pre-GoT Richard Madden played The Emperor. If anyone clicks through and clicks on "show more" they will see that Benedict Cumbabatch was also in the play. https://youtu.be/WLjn2KemSyk

This isn't actually an actor from GoT but I had never realised there was a film about Ice Spiders. The film came out in the 'noughties' so before GoT the series but after GoT the book. Whether or not the makers of the science-fiction film took inspiration from GRRM I have no idea - or how good (or bad) the film was. https://youtu.be/LM25VV_Aq5E (don't worry not the whole film - just a 2 and a bit minute clip). I did a bit of searching on the internet for Sara Dylan (Irish actress who plays Cersie's - as far as I know - unnamed servant). She has been in other things beside GoT but it didn't help that she has the same name as Bob Dylan's (I think ex-) wife so nothing to post about GoT Sara unfortunately.

The character's name is Bernadette, but I don't think we've ever heard her addressed by name on the show.
I am guessing that she is named after Bernadette Caulfield, one of the producers. Several characters seem to share names with people associated with the show.

Here's Sara Dylan's IMDB entry https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2407387/?re ... f_=nv_sr_1

Charles Dance in an interview on ITV (British channel) promoting a series called The Widow. https://youtu.be/c6QfsGcwpow He also discusses the gossip from the GoT premiere.
