Game of Thrones is casting 8 new characters for Season 8!

Game of Thrones Season 8 is nearing and we are still getting some casting updates, and today we have one that involves 8 characters! Minor spoilers ahead, consider yourself warned. Read on!

The Army of the Dead: What else is the Night King bringing in

Now, the new information comes from an exclusive report from Game of Thrones fan site, Watchers on the Wall. Now, to start off, we have a bunch of five characters, all set to be a part of a scene described as an “improv-heavy scene all about haggling over land.” Now that doesn’t sound like a scene involving lead cast, and there’s no mention of the same. It will likely be a filler scene, to lighten up the mood in the midst of all the fighting we’re going to be seeing.

Next up, we have three separate characters. First off, is the role of a strong soldier, male, aged 30-40. The description apparently requires a “physically intense performance from a strapping squaddie type.” It also asks for an “imposing presence and actual combat skills,” so we know that the said character will be present in one of the action scenes. Rehearsals for this character will begin from April 30, and the character will be filmed with in Belfast in the week starting May 23.

Next up, is the role of a young village girl, who will have a typical part. The scene will involve the girl getting “attacked by a man in a physically intense scene for which the actress will have to go naked above-the-waist“. Age requirements are 18-25, and filming schedule is the same as the previous character, which might mean the two share a scene.

Lastly, is the character of a grieving man, clean shaven, and aged 30-40. This character will be in a highly emotional scene, but the actor requirements state that the production is looking for “someone who won’t go over-the-top.” Filming will be in Belfast, in the week starting on June 18.

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!
