Winterfell Festival 2018: Get a chance to meet King Robert Baratheon

While Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie as told by Bran Stark in Game of Thrones Season Seven, but this news isn’t! It is officially happening at the 2018 Winterfell Festival to be held on September 16 at Castle Ward in Northern Ireland. And, it will be hosted by Mark Addy who played Robert Baratheon in Game of Thrones. Read on.

The National Trust, which organizes this event every year, has announced this on its official site. Mark will appear as a special guest at the event and will host a Q&A session with the fans. The official announcement said:

“King Robert, played by Mark who has a central role in series one, will be making a special guest appearance at Castle Ward for Winterfell Festival.

Mark, an award-winning actor and BAFTA nominee will host two intimate Q&A sessions at the Winterfell Festival where an audience of fans will have the opportunity to ask questions and get an insight on what it is like to be part of one of the biggest televisions shows in the world.”

So, “Come, bow before your king” at the Winterfell Festival. The other details of the festival in the announcement include:

  • Visitors will get to see a Winterfell where tensions are high as tales of ancient peoples, once thought extinct, who can kill with a mere touch of their flesh, rattle the residents.
  • A King’s Tournament Games where full contact jousting and enthralling film-set stunts & tricks will make a spectacle fit for entertaining royalty. Sword fighting displays and falconry will add to the atmosphere, creating an unforgettable event.Winterfell Festival 2018: Get a chance to meet King Robert Baratheon

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones might be over, but the franchise is alive and kicking. We still have at least two books left to come, and HBO has just announced he first prequel to the series, named House of the Dragon. The key factor is that both the books, and this show, require George R. R. Martin to write, and the prequel announcement was concerning fans about the fate of The Winds of Winter. George however has cleared those doubts by revealing he’ll be finishing The Winds of Winter before staring with the prequel. Read on!

George took to his Not a Blog to discuss the prequel, knowing fully well fans were concerned that it might lead to a further delay in The Winds of Winter coming out. George wrote, giving an insight into the development of the prequel:

“Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of writing on House of the Dragon, but a lot of work remains ahead of us. There’s a writer’s room to be assembled, episodes to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be assembled, budgets and production details to be worked out. As yet, we don’t even know where we will be shooting… though I expect we will revisit at least some of the countries David & Dan used for GAME OF THRONES (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain).”

He continued:

“I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent… and, who knows, if things work out, I may even be able to script a few episodes, as I did for the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.”

George made sure to give a little disclaimer, however:

“But… let me make this perfectly clear… I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished and delivered Winds of Winter. Winter is still coming, and Winds remains my priority, as much as I’d love to write episodes of House.”

He also discussed the sad fate of the other Game of Thrones prequel, The Long Night, which was cancelled, and noted that he didn’t think that the cancellation had anything to do with House of the Dragon, saying HBO had enough room for multiple Game of Thrones successor shows. He also expressed his sympathies towards Jane Goldman and others who worked on the show.

In any case, it looks like we might get The Winds of Winter in 2020, at least. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke poses with Jason Momoa and Kit Harington in the best birthday snap ever

Game of Thrones stars have the best get together, but the latest one is definitely our new favourite. The mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke turned 33 recently, and had a birthday bash fitting for a Khaleesi. The best part of the birthday for us fans is a picture that she posted a picture that is by all means iconic, featuring both her onscreen love interests from Game of Thrones. Read on!

Emilia took to Instagram to share moments from what seems like the best birthday party ever, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of the birthday snaps is Emilia’s picture with Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, and Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, calling it a “Momoa sandwich” in the hashtags. Check it out:

Well, if only we had gotten this moment on Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa left an adorable comment on the picture, saying “Happy birthday love. So stoked I got to see you 😍”. The picture comes right after Emilia and Jason’s recent reunion on The Graham Norton Show.

Emilia also posted more pictures from her birthday party. Take a look:

The Khaleesi sure knows how to party. There’s a good chance more Game of Thrones stars were present, but we do not have any pictures at the moment.

What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
