As the sweet wildling girl Gilly, Game of Thrones actress Hannah Murray plays the woman who captures Samwell Tarly's heart.

And now she's revealed she and the actor who plays him have a laugh at other actors'  self-absorbed tweets to develop their onscreen bond.

''John likes to read me funny tweets in the car on the way home,''  Murray told Vulture.

''Like pretentious actor-y things.'' I think it's good to laugh at them, because then you can deflate their egos a bit.''

Murray and Bradley share a tender moment in the most recent  episode, where Sam finally plants a kiss on his crush.

''Sam takes charge and it's all very manly and romantic and  lovely,'' Murray laughed.

Also known for her work on British teen show Skins, Murray said she relished the opportunity to share the screen with Rose Leslie, who played wildling warrior Ygritte.

In a scene that doesn't appear in George R.R Martin's novels,  Jon Snow's ill-fated ex spares Gilly and her newborn during a violent raid.

''It's really exciting (when) you're like, I've gone off-book!  I'm off-book!'' Murray said.

''It's like this uncharted territory where anything could  happen.

''The final episode of this season of the hugely popular fantasy  show will air next week.
