While most Game of Thrones fans would be quick to recognize the name, Gemma Whelan, as the actress who plays Yara Greyjoy, the tough as nails heiress to the Iron Islands, we might not be so quick to pick her out as a posh aristocrat from “Butterworth Hall.” Taking a break from commanding ships and laying waste to her enemies in Westeros, Ms. Whelan shows off her comedic side, slaying the audience with “a series of classic one-liners” as chat show host, Chastity Butterworth, a stereotypical upper-class English woman with little to no filter.

Joined by her loyal butler, Roger, the first episode invites Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) along for the ride as we’re treated to a little shameless flirting, Chastity’s brand of sarcasm and self-deprecating humor, as well as some tongue-in-cheek references to their own Game of Thrones characters (which is obviously a lot of fun for us).

 

Please note: the episode seems to be on a limited timer for listening, so get in on the episode with Charles Dance while you can, and be sure to follow @WhelanGemma to check out more Chastity Butterworth as new episodes roll out.
