Most of the filming for Game of Thrones season 8 has already been wrapped up and the team is now going into its post-production. The final season of this epic fantasy series, which began in 2011, will be aired in 2019 with its final six episodes and will finally end for good.

But, the World of Ice and Fire is vast, has a long history, and numerous backstories, which deserves a television adaptation. It hasn’t been long since it was announced that five distinct prequel series to the current events were under development. One of those, being developed by Jane Goldman and George R. R. Martin was rumoured to go under production by HBO.

Eventually, it was recently confirmed by the Belfast Telegraph that the filming for the Game of Thrones prequel series will begin in Belfast in October, 2018. According to them:

Staff at the Paint Hall studios in the city’s Titanic Quarter have been briefed that their next major project will be a series set 1,000 years before the events of the fantasy drama.”

With this news, we can accurately guess that the prequel series will be about the Long Night. This also means that the pilot for the series will be filmed sooner than previously expected and the series will definitely air by 2020, as per the longings of the HBO team.

The name for ‘the successor shows’, as George RR Martin likes to call them, hasn’t been announced yet,. As suggested by George, the series has a working title of ‘The Long Night’.

George was a part of the production of Game of Thrones until 2014 and is expected to return for this prequel series too. However, it will be really interesting to see how well the series will compete with the original series of Game of Thrones, with David Benioff and D. B. Weiss going off-board.

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
