Laura Elphinstone to play a new character in Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones has had a cast that has been one of the biggest reasons for the show being such a hit, and while the original cast was great, the actors that have joined the cast over the years, have been equally good, which we know isn’t always the case for TV series. As Season 8 draws closer, we’re looking forward to all the new cast members we have heard we will be seeing on the show, and a new actress, Laura Elphinstone, has just been confirmed for a role in Game of Thrones Season 8. Read on!

The news comes from a report from Game of Thrones fan site, Watchers on the Wall, which says that English actor Laura Elphinstone will play a new character set to be brought into season 8. The information comes from her agency page, which lists her role in Game of Thrones Season 8 under the character name Nora, and she is said to have worked with “various” directors.

Now we know that Game of Thrones Season 8 will have 6 episodes, so multiple directors means multiple episodes. That makes this Nora character a seemingly important one. Watchers also notes that the “various directors” tag might be a filler, and Laura might feature in a short role in a single episode. Anything could happen.

Speaking of the character, there hasn’t been anybody by the name Nora in the books, but we have seen numerous cases of characters with new names or wrong names, based off of characters from the book, sometimes even mashups of multiple characters. Of course, again, chances are it could be a small role that doesn’t matter to the storyline. The actress herself has been seen on stage in a number of projects, and also has a few screen credits. However, to be sure about anything, looks like we’re gonna have to wait till the next year to find out.

Got any guesses as to what this role could be? Hit us up in the comments, down below!

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!
