All of Hollywood's most violent, scary, and shocking moments were still created by people. People who make little inside jokes, who goof off at work, and who occasionally screw around with puppets (depending on the accessibility of puppets in the workplace). That's why some of the most serious moments in film and television history have shockingly cute behind-the-scenes stories. For instance ...
5 Sansa Stark's Actress Adopted Her Direwolf
Sansa Stark's role in Game Of Thrones has been a grim death march of murdered pets, murdered parents, murdered siblings, murdered idealism, brutal torture, and horrible rape. Fortunately, the stories behind the scenes read less like the Marquis de Sade and more like Randy Newman lyrics. When one of the direwolves found itself out of a job, actress Sophie Turner's mom convinced HBO to let them adopt her. And so, just like in your fanfiction, Sansa and Lady are living happily together forever.
Meanwhile, when the cast members aren't killing and raping each other on-screen, they're enjoying more production vacation time than Adam Sandler.
We're going to naturally assume that Oberyn's not wearing a suit.
Seriously, they look like they have the best time together ...
A Lannister always poses with duckface.
It gets harder and harder to take all of these people seriously as they're butchering and knife-raping each other after you see that their off-screen lives are basically a '60s beach comedy.
4 The Muppets Crash On Dagobah
The Empire Strikes Back wasn't exactly a breeze to film, especially the scenes on Dagobah. It took up to four hours to shoot two lines of dialogue in the hot, humid muck. Sometimes, they would even have to wear masks to stave off the nausea caused by the foggy, gassy confines of Yoda's backyard. Plus, getting the Yoda puppet to work properly was a technical nightmare.
With frustrations running high, Yoda operator Frank Oz decided that a surprise was in order. Hamill had just delivered the line "I followed my feelings," when Miss Piggy popped up next to him from out of nowhere and declared "Feelings? Ya wanna know about feelings? Get behind this couch and I'll show ya feelings, ya little runt."
"I've got a bad feeling in my pants."
Oz happened to also be the puppeteer responsible for numerous Muppets and Sesame Street characters, and he decided to have a few of his co-workers visit him on set. While it was rather scandalous to have Miss Piggy shamelessly flirt with Luke Skywalker right in front of her green beau, Hamill got over the awkwardness and sang a duet of "Feelings" with Miss Piggy. Sadly, their musical number wasn't filmed -- after all, it was simply a semi-spontaneous moment to perk up the folks on set. Though we do have some photos ...
It's cool that Yoda got to work with his human cousin.
And every picture from the visit looks like one of your weird childhood fever dreams come true. Look at Yoda with his thousand-yard stare, trying to tolerate those uppity young puppets. They're like his hyperactive grandkids, and that explains so much.
"My swamp these kids need to get off."
