Emilia Clarke still insists Game of Thrones is filming multiple endings

Game of Thrones is a big show, and we have seen the leaks come from the show which quite match the size of the show itself. For Season 7, we had about the entire plot leaked months before the season premiered, and when it did premiere, we started getting leaks in the form of entire episodes, before they aired. HBO has been extra careful with Season 8, and we haven’t had any substantial leaks yet. However, what we’ve had is rumours that the production is filming multiple endings to the show to ensure stuff doesn’t get spoiled, and now we have a fresh reminder of the same. Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen on the show, recently talked about filming multiple endings for Game of Thrones. Read on!

Take a closer look at the costumes and props from 'Beyond the Wall'!

Now, if you don’t know, HBO’s President of Original Programming, Casey Bloys first revealed that the production was filming multiple endings. This was confirmed by Emilia Clarke in an interview shortly thereafter, but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, had dismissed this on the grounds that there wasn’t enough room for wastefulness in the budget. However in a recent appearance on her press tour on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Awards Chatter”, Emilia Clarke talked about the multiple endings:

“I don’t know that I even [know the ending] now. I’m being serious. I think they’re filming a bunch of stuff and they’re not telling us. I’m being serious. I’m being deadly serious. I think that they don’t even trust us. There’s lots of different endings that could happen; I think we’re doing all of them and we aren’t being told which is actually what’s going to happen.”

This confirms the season 8 filming information that we had shared earlier. Emilia also discussed how she used to be very nervous in her first year on the show, and would carry a copy of the first ASOIAF book like a lucky charm:

“I literally would just wake up and try and survive the day. Like, literally, ‘don’t let them know that they shouldn’t have hired you, cause they shouldn’t have hired you.’”

She also talked about the nudity on the show, and how she felt about doing it playing Daenerys:

“Was it daunting for me, as a 23-year-old, to do it? Yes, 100 percent. Hell, it’s daunting anyway. But I must admit, having done it, I believe people care more for her as a character, because they’ve seen her suffer, so there’s that. But the volume of interest in the fact that I took my clothes off is astonishing to me. Emilia Clarke didn’t go up on stage and go, ‘What up guys? Check out these guys [her breasts]!’ That didn’t happen. I took on a character, and the character had things happen to her.”

Speaking of how it was to have the show end, Emilia said:

“It’s incredibly emotional, this final season that we’re in the middle of right now…I truly get really emotional just even thinking about the end of the show [because] what you’re leaving behind is…everything that has happened to me in my 20s — 10 years of my life was woven within the show. You know, there’s so much that’s happened to all of us, and you’re walking away from all of that…Daenerys is so much a part of who I am, and I am so much a part of who she is, so it’s this incredibly frightening thing to walk away from — but at the same time, unbelievably exciting.”

Well, we’re certainly excited to see how the show ends. What about you? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Blu-ray has exclusive clips from “The Long Night”

Game of Thrones Blu-Ray contains "The Long Night" Exclusive Clips!

It has been nearly seven months since the last episode of Game of Thrones aired. Now that the dust seems to be settling down on the show, the Blu-rays are out with some very exclusive content for its fans.

As reported earlier, Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection box set and Game of Thrones: The Complete Series Blu-ray and DVD sets, were released on December 3. Ever since the Blu-rays have been out, the deleted scenes have begun to hit the internet.

It turns out, if you have bought all the goodies of the show, you would have hit the jackpot with some never seen before footage from the show. As per Syfy, there is an exclusive clip from the mammoth battle sequence of “the long night” episode of season 8. The video is titled When Winter Falls.

In the video, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) talk about their experiences shooting the episode.

Christie in the videos says “Oh my goodness, it was overwhelming, You’re on this huge set, it’s filled with smoke. It feels like maybe a 1,000 people on the set with extras, crew, and cast.”

Whether we liked the episode or not, even the most ardent critic of the show have been appreciative of the effort that went behind shooting it. Directed by Miguel Sapochnik, “The Long Night” required 55 days of grueling night shoots across 11 weeks.

Entire cast and crew have gone on record talking about their emotional and sometimes even exhaustive experiences of shooting for the show. The behind the scenes footage gives us a slight peek into that experience.

Kristian Nairn (Hodor) says Game of Thrones Season 8 criticism was undeserved

Kristian Nairn feels the Game of Thrones criticism was undeserved

If you’re someone that defends Game of Thrones’ ending, you might not be alone. Kristian Nairn a.k.a. Hodor feels that the criticism of Games of Thrones final season was undeserved. Speaking recently at Northern Michigan University, Nairn joined the rest of the cast in the defense of the show. The popular HBO show ended its run earlier this year and received some extreme reactions from fans and critics alike.

He was quoted saying:

We’re all immensely proud of it, I know it was life-changing for all of us. I’m just sad that it’s over, I really am. And not just because I’m dead. […] I was very happy with the series ending, I understand why people were mad. But again I think deep down if people look into the motivation behind it I think they’re more just mad that it’s over.”

Nairn however, went on to add that because the show had stringent timeline for the final season, the makers had to let go off certain subtleties that they had shown in earlier seasons.

He said:

“I don’t think the criticism the show received was deserved.

I think the last season was excellent. My only qualm was that I felt that it could’ve been a little longer — I missed the Game of Thrones of old that paid such attention to small details — like a ten-minute dialogue scene. But, because the clock was ticking and they’re heading towards a conclusion, it lost a bit of subtlety and that was something people loved about the show, it was a show where even the small characters had a role to play.”

Every one who saw the show is always going to remember the Hodor character played by Nairn. He was one of the many actors on the show who had small but an influential character.

Do you agree with Kristian Nairn’s view? Let us know in the comments below!
