Will there be no role of Iron Bank in Game of Thrones season 8?

Braavos – a beautiful free city situated in the continent of Essos, miles away from Westeros – the main setting for Game of Thrones, is home to two important guilds – the faceless men and the Iron Bank. But, according to the latest update, the Iron Bank will have minimal or no role at all in the final season.

Recently, Mark Gatiss, the actor who plays Tycho Nestoris – the representative of the Iron Bank, attended an interview with Shortlist. On being asked if he survives the final season of Game of Thrones, he replied:

“I’m not in it, so I guess I survive. Although they might just mention offhand that I’ve had my head bitten off by a dragon off-screen or something.”

Will there be no role of Iron Bank in Game of Thrones season 8?

The actor last appeared in two episodes of the seventh season namely ‘The Queen’s Justice’ and ‘The Spoils of War’ to discuss how the debts of the crown would be paid back. But, by Mark’s reply in the interview, we can infer with ‘a grain of salt’ that it’s possible that he won’t have much of a role to play in the final season with the main focus on the war between the living and the dead. Also, we can expect that either we’ll get him mentioned in the series once or he may even die off-screen.

The Iron Bank has stayed in the background for most of the seasons only being mentioned by major characters such as Tywin Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, and Olenna Tyrell. And, also Cersei sent Mace Tyrell with Ser Meryn Trant to Braavos back in season five to deal with the bank.

But, the fact that the Iron Bank is richest and the most powerful bank in the whole known world of Ice and Fire can’t be ignored too. Also, we know that on the advice of Tycho Nestoris, Cersei summoned Euron Greyjoy to hire and ship in the army of mercenaries, the Golden Company, to help her win the wars.

So, what role you think the Iron Bank will play in the final season? Or, will it play no role at all? Tell us in the comments section.

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
