John Bradley, also known as maester-in-training Samwell Tarly, is the latest Game of Thrones cast member to fall victim to a borderline cruel prank at the hands of HBO's showrunners. Sandwiched between Hodor and Davos during a roundtable on Conan, Bradley told a story about one unfortunate costume.

Apparently, Bradley received a script from Weiss and Benioff that described Sam's first on-screen trip to his home in Horn Hill. His script read:

We see Sam dressed for dinner. Sam is now resplendent in a bright purple frock coat, pink tights, pink slip-on shoes, and a pink box hat.
