Auditions can be nerve-wracking affairs for actors. Imagine how daunting one is for a hit show like "Game of Thrones"!

Even more so since the HBO drama features some, uh, suggestive scenes. Gemma Whelan had to perform one such scene — pleasuring somebody while riding a horse — in her audition for Yara Greyjoy.

"It was weird, but the casting director makes you feel ... so comfortable," the actress said while appearing on Yahoo! UK's "Fringe in Five" chat show to promote her two shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

"I just had to pretend I was on a horse and I was 'seeing to' somebody behind me as I rode my horse and [the casting director] said, 'Look straight down the barrel of the camera and just go for it.' So there I was."

If Whelan could get through that awkward experience, playing the tough and formidable Yara should be a cakewalk.
