Nell Tiger Free revealed that she’s never watched an episode of the smash-hit HBO show featuring her breakout role: “Game of Thrones.”

Free, 24, who stars in the new horror film “The First Omen,” shared the shocking news during her appearance on “The Jess Cagle Show with Julia Cunningham” on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy (channel 102). Check out her full interview on the SiriusXM app and web player.

“I’ll be honest with you – confession time, conventional booth: I have never seen the show,” the “Servant” star told a gobsmacked Jess and Julia. “I have never see ‘Game of Thrones.’ You look so shocked.”

Free was only 14 when she played Myrcella Baratheon during the fifth and sixth season of the legendary eight-season fantasy series. While she might’ve been too young to watch the show during its initial airing, she revealed that she at least did know the important details about her character – including how (spoiler alert) her character’s uncle, Jaime Lannister, was also her father.

“I filmed that bit, so I did know that,” Free said.

Additionally, during her interview, the British actress also reflected on acting in the HBO series and, of course, talked about “The First Omen” and its potential for a sequel.

“I didn’t really understand what i was doing, like, I didn’t really understand what was going on,” Free said of her experience on the “GoT” set. “I just thought that this is what every situation was like. That there’s like 200 day players at all times and eight cameras. I was like, ‘This is normal. This is what it will be like.’”

“The First Omen” is a prequel to the 1976 horror classic “The Omen” and is due out on April 5.
