Sophie Turner shows off her bold side in new thriller movie Heavy

Game of Thrones was the most celebrated show of the 21st century. The fantastical drama set the bar for quality TV shows really high. The series was famous for its beautiful scenery, gruesome battles and on-point casting. However, it was also famous for various controversial scenes. Quite a number of viewers were shocked by the amount of nudity and sex scenes on the HBO epic. The cast tried to explain to the public why they were important to the story. Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner doesn’t feel shy went it comes to expressing herself on the screen. She plays a bold girlfriend of a drug dealer in her new movie Heavy.

The 24-year-old actress plays Maddie, the girlfriend of high-end drug dealer Seven ‘Sev’ Max (Daniel Zovatto). The couple is living it up in New York City. Sev knows exactly where to sell his gear; to trust-fund clients, at model parties and crazed drug-fuelled escapades.

Sev has a painful past as well as many vices of his own, which leads him to find comfort in all the wrong places. While Maddie is equally broken, she is Sev’s true love, but he realises this all too late.

Maddie says at the end of the trailer: “This is the kind of story where everyone is to blame and no one is spared. Then again they do say that love conquers all.”

House of The Dragon Costume Designer provides a sneak-peek at the show’s set

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. It was a mystical journey that covered the lives of both the viewers and the performers for a decade. Fans of the series miss the show terribly (so does HBO as their money-making mine!). As a result, HBO is trying hard to woo back its audience with the help of one of their most famous franchise. They have already got the viewers on their toes by including the prequel to the show House of The Dragon in their programming line-up for 2021-22. The show is fast on track for release in 2022. A little peek into the set, here and there, always piques our interest.

Jany Temime, a costume designer who’s worked on famous movies like the Harry Potter series, Bruges, Skyfall and Gravity is a crew member for the prequel series. She posted a photo of Leavesden Studios in Watford, England, tagging it with #GameofThrones.

Leavesden Studios is the production headquarters for House of the Dragon in its first season. Although, like its mother show, it will also film in other areas. Temime posting this image can only mean that pre-production is rolling on, which means that filming will soon begin.

The sight of the rainbow over the show’s set might be a good omen by the Gods of Westeros. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
