On the first day of filming things did not go as planned for Emilia as she recalls in the HBO commentary on the show
`Yeah, I remember my first day on set," Clarke said. "Oh my God, I fell off a f---ing horse. Jesus, this was my first job. This is like the first thing I ever did, and they stuck me on a horse in a bamboo field in Belfast, and it`s raining. I was falling off the horse trying to act still.`
During filming Emilia Clarke`s horse bolted and had to be calmed down by co star Iain Glen.
"You ask someone, `Can you ride?`...as an actor you`re trained to say yes. But it`s one thing doing some riding on a Welsh holiday with your family...Luckily, Iain managed to calm me and the horse down at the same time,"
