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.”

  • 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

Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) to produce series on Female World War Aviators

Game of Thrones stars have continued on their merry ways and have continued to do some great stuff. While some have gone on to do award-winning roles like Richard Madden, some have gone on to portray roles on the big screen like Emilia Clarke. Another popular cast member who has quietly gone on to open her production house is Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Thrones. Read on to find out more!

Natalie Dormer has recently launched a production house called Dog Rose Productions. As per The Wrap, Dormer has decided to produce a series on female aviators in World War 2 and it has been titled as Spitfire Sisters.  The show will be written by playwright and screenwriter Morgan Lloyd Malcolm.

Regarding the story Dormer said:

“This is a barely known story, a thrilling story; an important story ready to be told by such a passionate voice as Morgan’s.” 

This is going to be the second series under Dormer’s newly launched production house. The first announced project was the drama Vivling based on the life of British actress Vivien Leigh.

Natalie Dormer really got the limelight through her portrayal of Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones. Although her character was killed off in Season 6, fans still remember her character. In fact, the treatment given to her on-screen family had pissed her off!

Isn’t it great to see former Game of Thrones stars doing their own things and making some great stuff of their own? We hope Spitfire Sisters goes to achieve great things for Dormer and her production house.
