By the looks of it, a lot many people have been adoring the British comedy drama Sex Education. But only real television fans might have been wondering where they have seen Sofia Marchetti before. Here’s a hint- you might know the famous actress Hannah Waddingham from Game of Thrones. And even if that does not click, here’s a bigger hint- she played Septa Unella in season 5 and 6 of HBO’s fantasy drama. But well, nobody really could spot that it’s the same woman.

Hannah Waddingham Appeared Both on ‘Sex Education’ and ‘Game of Thrones’
For those who are binge-watching Netlix’s latest British comedy drama series Sex Education, they might have noticed one familiar face. Doesn’t Sofia Marchetti, one of Jackson’s (Kedar Williams) two mothers look familiar? Well, she does. The actress who played this role- Hannah Waddingham is also popular for her infamous dialogues in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones. She played Septa Unella on seasons 5 and 6. But even if that does not click, she was the woman who shouted ‘Shame’ at Cersei Lannister.
Her most notable appearances on Game of Thrones includes her forcing Cersei Lannister to admit her crimes after her arrest by the High Sparrow. And then she’s the same Septa who shouted ‘Shame’ during her punishments.
To break this out to us, Netflix UK’s Twitter account made a post sharing two images side by side- one from her role in Sex Education and the other one from Game of Thrones. And well, they even poked some fun using her infamous ‘Shame’ dialogue.
