Rory McCann talks about the Hound's evolution and teases Cleganebowl

Game of Thrones is a great show, and there is so much subject matter, that there are smaller fandoms within the Game of Thrones fandom, dedicated to specific events, forever waiting in anticipation of them, one of which, is Cleganebowl. The idea is that the Clegane brothers will fight to death. In Season 7 we saw The Hound come at his brother, The Mountain, in a way that suggests that we will see Cleganebowl next season. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Rory McCann, who plays the role of the Hound, talked about the evolution of his character, and teased Cleganebowl. Read on!

Talking about that Dragonpit scene last season where the Hound walked up to the Mountain and issued a bit of a threat, Rory said :

“He puts it all aside just to go and have a word with his brother. It just shows you it’s still very important to him. It’s still burning away at him, and he hates him.”

Game of Thrones fan theory almost confirms Cleganebowl, but from a new perspective

Moving on, he spoke about Cleganebowl :

“If it happens, fantastic. Listen, I’ve started training already. There’s absolutely no chance he’ll win. It’s 100 percent that I will win. The Hound will win.”

Speaking of how Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain) says that his character will win, Rory said :

“That’s ring talk. I’ve seen that all before. He knows I can still move pretty fast and I’ll be the little Jack Russell around his feet, kicking him in the balls and slapping him on the head. Don’t you worry, I’ve got my ways.”

Rory also had an injury on the sets of Season 7, and he revealed how it happened :

“In reality, it was because of a bloody dragon. I was at the back of that dragon riding it, and I’m no Jean-Claude Van Damme. I can’t do the splits and it’s got one big ass … at least I can tell the truth about that now.”

He spoke about how the Hound has grown over the years :

“I still can hardly believe it. I remember the first series or second series I was meant to do a big speech about how I got my face burned and we decided to not do it, and David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] ended up coming in my trailer and said, “Don’t worry. We’re still gonna use this speech. We’re still gonna tell your story, but we’ve got so much going on. We’re just going to bring it in slowly.” I didn’t realize they were going to bring me slowly [in] for the next six years, but it’s just been a wonderful thing. I feel my first job, my first two days on “Game of Thrones,” was “spear carrier with a bit of history potentially,” “spear carrier looking after the king or the king’s son.” And going from that to one of the major characters and delving into his history and who he’s clashing with, it’s just been such a privilege with this. I’ve been going on this arc, this character development. He’s a different character from when he first started, and I don’t think I’ll ever get a job like this again.

There are many more interesting bits in the interview, so go check out the full piece, here. Do you think Cleganebowl will happen next season? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

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.”
