Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in Canada

There’s lots in store for Westeros in Season 8, but how would the story change if it was based in Canada? A new website Game of Canada has decided to answer that very question.Replacing 10 characters and film locations with Canadian alternatives, the website provides fans with some chibi-style fan art, animated dragons and a fun twist on the characters and film sets.. We’ve taken a look at some of the character replacements to see if the Canadian cast is a patch on the actors and actresses we’ve grown to love.

DAENERYS TARGARYEN

Based on her fierce portrayal of Silk Spectre in Watchmen, it’s not totally out of the question to imagine her mothering dragons and going head to head with Cersei in their quest for the Iron Throne. Do you think she’d pull off the white wig?

JON SNOW

Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in CanadaFinding a replacement for Kit Harington was never going to be easy but Ryan Reynolds could be a close match. He earned a solid fanbase by performing as Wade Wilson in Deadpool and would certainly bring more humour to the role of Jon Snow. As the heartthrob of the show, only he could be considered iconic enough to play the Ex-Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and Daenerys’ lover and relative.

CERSEI LANNISTER

Admittedly, Cersei doesn’t have the nicest of personalities but she has mental strength unlike any other character. Anita Sarkeesian is an interesting suggestion for Cersei. She is passionate, powerful and political – all traits present in the current ruler of Westeros.

JAIME LANNISTER

Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in CanadaPerhaps the most bizarre choice is Justin Bieber. In fact, the suggestion of Justin Bieber as Jaime Lannister has drawn criticism. In truth, it’s near enough impossible to replace Nikolaj Coster-Waldau however, a key part of Jaime is his loveable rogue persona which could be mirrored by Justin Bieber who seems to have an all-or-nothing personality. If we had to choose an alternative though, we think that Prince Charming from Shrek could possibly be a match based on looks alone.

TYRION LANNISTER

Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in CanadaWho could possibly portray the witty and intelligent Tyrion Lannister other than Peter Dinklage? Jordan Prentice could apparently! Both Tyrion and Jordan possess an excellent sense of humour and a memorable personality. Aside from Jordan’s acting ability serving him in the political Game of Thrones, he’s actually been confused with Peter Dinklage before so clearly they very similar in appearance.

SANSA STARK

Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in CanadaAge difference aside, Rachel McAdams could perform fantastically well as Sansa Stark. Her experience has already proven her ability as a dramatic actress and both Sansa and Rachel  learn that hardship forces you to develop a thicker skin. Rachel emerged triumphant from a rumoured tempestuous relationship with Ryan Gosling behind the scenes of The Notebook, with both actors successfully performing in the blockbuster. Her ability to survive in emotionally challenging situations means she’d have no problem in retaining Winterfell.

ARYA STARK

Website imagines Game of Thrones if it was completely made in CanadaThere are height and age differences between Arya Stark and Shannon Szabados however, the athleticism of both Arya and Shannon are too similar to ignore. Both Arya and Shannon pursue a path of their own making, ignoring societal conventions. As an ice hockey player, Shannon’s speed, skill, and tight focus match her to the young assassin – she is more than capable of handling herself in the field.

The tiny footage is part of the video titled “It All Starts Here,” and it gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect from HBO in 2019. For us the center of attention is the Game Of Thrones footage in the video and we can see the Unsullied and Dothraki marching into Winterfell, with Drogon flying above and the Northerners are really scared to see a dragon for the first time in their life, but not Arya.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere cast revealed. Two surprising cast members return

"The Dragon and the Wolf" becomes the most watched Game of Thrones episode ever jon_snow_and_dany

Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming to our television sets in less than two months. While Jason Momoa might have hinted at the red carpet premiere date on April 3, 2019, which is eleven days before the actual airing date of the new season, a new announcement has been made by HBO which reveals the cast of the premiere. Taking into account what actually has been announced by HBO we have two cast members who – much to our surprise may return back for the Final Season of Game of Thrones.

The list announced on the website of HBO gives us detail about which characters will be back during the first episode of season 8 and these include main cast members like Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Gwendoline Christie, and more!

Other stars included in the list are Ben Crompton (Edd Tollett), Kristopher Hivju (Tormund), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), and others.

This tells that the first episode of this season will be in fact exactly 60-minutes-long as revealed earlier. But, before we give away the names of those cast members – please proceed with caution in case you want to be spoiler-free for Game of Thrones Season 8.

Peter Dinklage says Game Of Thrones Season 8 battles will be better than ‘the Battle of the Bastards’Talking about the two cast members who will be back in the season 8 premiere episode, pretty much confirming that they are reprising their roles in season include:

Tobias Menzies: The actor who plays the role of the long- lost uncle of the Starks – Edmure Tully who was last seen being used as a bait by the Lannisters and the Freys in Season 6 to win back Riverrun.

Lino Facioli: Lino Francioli – the actor who plays the role of the last heir of House Arryn – Robin Arryn. He was last seen practising archery in Season 6 with Ser Yohn Royce at Vale. He appeared briefly in the scene where the deceased Littlefinger had Vale align with Starks and had gifted him a Gyrfalcon.

This gives us some hope for two major houses surviving the events in Game of Thrones Season 8 unless the showrunners have decided to bring them only to kill them later. Here’s a full list of the cast members who will be a part of Game Of Thrones season 8 premiere:

Sophie Turner reveals Sansa is getting an armour in Game of Thrones Season 8

With us being in the mid of February, Game of Thrones Season 8 seems to be arriving sooner than ever. While we wait for the official trailer which we expect to drop soon, more and more cast interviews have started surfacing. And this time it is Sophie Turner – who has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that her attire is getting a new upgrade in Season 8 with added armour. Read on.

Sophie Turner to be the lead star of the next X-Men movie

Sansa Stark – the true lady of Winterfell has undergone a rather darker change in her as compared to the other characters we’ve known over the seasons. Of course, the kind of trauma she has suffered especially witnessing the assassination of her father – she has undergone is the biggest propelling factor.

Additionally, this drastic change has also been contributed by her experiences with antagonists and power played like Joffrey, Cersei, Ramsay, and Littlefinger who’ve used and abused her over the last seven seasons. Without diving much deeper in her character arc, now let’s discuss in detail what Sophie told Entertainment Weekly.

“This is the first time I’ve had armour,” she revealed.

This armour according to EW, isn’t a regular armour worn by Knights and Kings but ‘a jet-black ensemble made of thick leather or similar material’. Sophie also said:

“We [had] the idea of it being very protective and she buttons herself up…I wanted her to have a bit of armour and be a bit more warrior like. She’s like the warrior of Winterfell.”

What the second official teaser – Crypts of Winterfell showed us has already created a lot of hype in the fandom – talks about Sansa doing her hair like Daenerys and much more. Yet, we can’t ignore that Sansa has drawn her personality from the women she has learnt a great deal like Cersei Lannister.

Where, she once did her hair in a style similar to Cersei and wore more bright colours, after returning to Winterfell – she now dresses in a darker colour like several other characters. Maybe, we’re up for an armoured Sansa much like Cersei who too has got an attire upgrade in the new season.

We haven’t got any teaser or behind-the-scenes photos that reveal Sansa’s new costume yet if Entertainment Weekly has brought us this news – the smoke obviously comes from some fire around. So, what were your thoughts on Sansa’s costume change in Season 8? Tell us in the comments.
