Game of Thrones is not a show where characters go for a peaceful death.

Even Myrcella Baratheon innocent teen Myrcella, whose worst offense was to have an actual crush on a prince died by poison, but her suffering was minimal compared to many other characters. Originally, however, the show planned a much more gruesome end.

Originally what happened is they gave me those mashed up bananas with like blood, fake blood,” actress Nell Tiger Free told MCM Buzz. “And my brains were supposed to be all over the ship.

I was so excited,” Free said in the same interview. “I dont like gore but, I knew they were just like bananas, so I was okay with it.

Before departing Dorne with her uncle-slash-father Jaime Lannister, Myrcella receives a kiss from Ellaria Sand, a kiss coated in the deadly poison that doesn’t kill Myrcella until she’s helpless at sea.

“They cut it out because they wanted Myrcella’s death to reflect her life and wanted it to be sweet, which is rare for Thrones,” Free added. “Unlike my husband [Trystane Martell], who got a spear like straight through his face.”
