Rebecca Welton, who you may recognize as Unella Septa from Game of Thrones or as Ted Lasso from Apple TV+, is returning to your screens for the holidays with her own Christmas special, Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas. Apple TV+ released the first image of the Prime-Time Emmy winner, who can be seen wearing a gold gown, smiling broadly, holding a microphone, and standing in front of a Christmas tree. On November 22, the streaming service will premiere the Christmas special.
Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas
Home for Christmas, Hannah Waddingham’s Christmas special, is a musical recorded live at the London Coliseum. When it premieres in November, it will be accessible to audiences all around the world. It will be a delight to see Waddingham on stage with a huge band and special guests, singing Christmas classics, especially for those who know her mostly as Rebecca in Ted Lasso or as the dedicated servant of the High Sparrow in Game of Thrones.
Waddingham is well-known for her TV roles in recent years, but she also has experience in the theater. Her first acting role was in the dinner theater production of “Joni and Gina’s Wedding,” where she earned her start. This isn’t the first time the award-winning actress has impressed with a spectacular performance; she did it in Tonight’s the Night, too.

Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas: What to Expect?
The Emmy-winning actress Hannah Weddingham will introduce the Christmas music special Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas, available exclusively on Apple TV+. She’ll be singing some holiday standards, and the special guests she’ll be accompanied by are famous figures in the business, but nobody knows who they are just yet.
In addition to her incredible performance at Eurovision, Hannah also sang “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” on the second season of Ted Lasso. The audience was completely overwhelmed, to put it mildly. Many people can’t wait to see what she has in store for them in her holiday offering. Hannah, now 49 years old, has always considered singing to be her “real” work. She went on to add that she had never given any thought to pursuing a different line of work. Her calling in life was to sing.
