Nathalie Emmanuel is excited for people to watch Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones filming has wrapped up. It is expected to air in the first half of 2019. For the fans, it may be the most epic fantasy TV series ever produced. But, the cast members find a strange nostalgia in it, especially the ones who’ve grown as the series progressed.

We recently shared a post where Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) discussed her experience while working on the show. In this article, we’re sharing Nathalie Emmanuel’s interview with the Ians Agency via the Indian Express.

Nathalie plays one of Daenerys Targaryen’s most trusted advisors – Missandei on the show. She has been playing her in the series since the third season. Missandei’s character has undergone tremendous development from Master Krazneys mo-Nakloz’s translator to the Dragon Queen’s confidant and hand-maiden.

“I think what we can expect from the final season of GoT is just a real push. Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher. There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense,”  said Nathalie speaking about what to expect in the final season.

Praising the final season, she said that it is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking. Absolutely, we all can understand that we won’t be getting a bittersweet ending, as the author of the book series George RR Martin had promised. Speaking on the same, she said:

“All of the things that you expect from ‘Game of Thrones’, but at the same time, since it is the last one, the emotions will be so much more intense. I am very excited for people to see it. We have been working so hard on it. The production is finished now.”

Praising the team-effort Game of Thrones cast and crew is putting up for a fantastic Season 8, she also said, “It took us longer to shoot this season than any of the seasons…I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one.”

Apart from Game of Thrones, Nathalie has been playing an eminent role in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise. Speaking about the same she said, “The reason why these films continue to be so popular today is because they are very inclusive of people from all kinds of backgrounds. They look very different from one another, they travel with each movie all over the world and show different cultures, different language, different landscape and they take people outside of what they know and represent them too.

How excited are you for the epic final season of Game of Thrones and what do you think would be the bittersweet part of it? 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.
