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!

Every cloud has a silver lining. Even though the year 2020 has been full of tragedies and losses, there is some good news. Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are getting ready to welcome their first child.

The couple officially announced it back in September this year. It seems like they are getting ready to welcome the new family member. They were spotted on Thursday in England while loading some stuff into their Land Rover Defender.

Leslie stood to the side with the couple’s sweet dog. Kit did the heavy lifting, placing carrier bags and black bags into the back of the car.

Rose sported a casual outfit and a stylish hat. She looked amazing with her baby bump on view. She held the pair’s pet Whippet’s lead in one hand and handed bags to Kit with the other.

Rose first showed off her baby bump earlier this year in stunning photos for Make Magazine. She explained that the pair of them have moved home to England ahead of having their baby.

What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup,” she said. “It’s a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It’s so peaceful.”

Kit and Rose are setting some serious relationship goals. Shower the cute family with your best wishes in the comments below!

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Failures are the stepping stones to success. Game of Thrones became the huge and thriving franchise it is today after repeated efforts of the cast and crew despite facing huge setbacks. The popular TV show hit a major roadblock at the beginning of its filming. The original pilot episode of the series turned out to be a $10 million disaster and had to be re-filmed with a lot of changes. One of those changes also removed George R.R. Martin’s cameo scene.

Martin was supposed to appear as a Pentoshi magister at Khal Drogo and Daenerys’ wedding scene. He shared a picture of him in costume, along with co-star Ian McNeice. McNeice is dressed as Illyrio Mopatis, another magister of Pentos. They were shooting in Morocco.

The Game of Thrones writer shared the picture on his Twitter and personal website, Not a Blog. Fans loved the snap, some even described them as medieval Santas.

More can be found out about the show’s unaired pilot in Entertainment Weekly editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon. The book contains detailed information about various interviews with the show’s cast and crew. It delves into the secret behind-the-scene mysteries and brings them to the limelight.

Though the original pilot was absolutely bonkers and had to be re-shot, it lost a few fun elements. Like George R.R. Martin’s cameo, and even Ian McNeice was replaced. What do you think about the unaired pilot? Tell us in the comments below!
