Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) says he would love to return for a Game of Thrones prequel

One of the most iconic Game of Thrones characters ever, who was known to run the very game for quite a while, is Tywin Lannister. Sadly, he got murdered by his own son while on the pot, and we lost him like many others. Charles Dance, who played the role, is a fan favorite, and ranks highly among popularity among fans. In a recent interview with Metro, he talked about how he hates the age of selfies, and how he would love to return to play Tywin for a Game of Thrones prequel. Read on!

Speaking of how big Game of Thrones is, and why he doesn’t like selfies, he said :

“It’s a phenomenon and it’s shown all over the world. You travel a lot in this job, and here I am in Belgium – a whole load of troops came into this hotel I was staying in Brussels before, and they said: “Oh! Game Of Thrones!” ‘I had a selfie with about ten Belgian soldiers. I’ve become the forces sweetheart.

Because of the show’s success and the power of television, it’s much more powerful than film, it doesn’t matter where I go whether it’s here, Spain or Italy, there’s bound to be people who are fans of Game Of Thrones.

‘It’s the age of the selfies so out comes the mobile phone: “Can I have a picture?” Most of the time, yes, and then there are times when I think, “Oh fuck it no, this is so boring.” ‘They pay the wages though, so it’s better to be charming.”

He continued :

“It’s incredibly boring and so predictable. It really is. That’s what people do now [though], so as long as I’m in the right mood. If I’m standing in the checkout at Waitrose and somebody wants a bloody selfie, I’ll politely tell them to fuck off. ‘There are times when you get people who are really offended if you say no, as if it’s obligatory. “What do you mean no, I’m your greatest fan!” Well, that’s very kind of you, I appreciate that, but I’d rather you didn’t take a selfie!”

He also talked about how he would like to return to his role for a Game of Thrones prequel :

“If it was in the same calibre, yes. Because Game Of Thrones really was as good as it gets. It’s a fantastic series. I look back on it fondly. Occasionally you have long days in the cold, the horse doesn’t behave properly, or the armour sticks in the back of your neck, but we’re not down in the mines digging for coal, we’re actors.

We’re pretending for everything, and we’re very lucky to be able to do that.”

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

George R. R. Martin praises HBO's Chernobyl, says it's worthy of Emmys

Game of Thrones is over, but HBO has no plans of slowing down. Immediately after Game of Thrones ended, HBO aired a limited series called Chernobyl, which became an instant hit. Now, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe, George R. R. Martin has praised Chernobyl and expressed his approval for the show to win at the Emmy awards. Read on!

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
