George R.R. Martin signed a Game of Thrones copy to be auctioned for a fan's cancer treatment

Game of Thrones has been infamous for killing off characters that the audience grows to love, on a regular basis. So, naturally when one hears that it could potentially save someone’s life for real, the change is refreshing. Sean Shepard, a fan of A Song of Ice And Fire, is suffering from an aggressive cancer called Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It appeared in his tongue and then spread to his neck lymph nodes. He has undergone treatment, both radiation and chemotherapy, but it hasn’t killed the cancer.

He made a friend at the San Diego Comic Con 2011 in Shawn Speakman, Publisher and Editorial Director at Grim Oak Press, who has suffered from two different types of cancer himself. Speakman was ironically going through treatment at the time he met Sean. As a cancer survivor, he is now helping Sean to raise money for his further treatment so as to save or at least extend his life.

Grim Oak Press is auctioning a George R.R. Martin signed ARC copy of  A Game of Thrones  (the first book in the series), owned by Sean Shepard, on eBay. The auction winner will also get an additional George R.R. Martin goodie from Speakman’s personal collection; and a signed Publisher’s Copy of  A  Knight of the Seven Kingdoms  donated by Subterranean PressGeorge R.R. Martin signed A Game of Thrones on auction for a fan's cancer treatment

An ARC is an Advanced Reading Copy given to booksellers, librarians, journalists, or as a contest prize before a book or novel is printed for mass distribution. This ARC of A Game of Thrones, signed by George R.R. Martin, was given away at the American Booksellers Association’s 1996 Expo, a month before its actual publish date. George R.R.

Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar) shows up in first teaser trailer for Stranger Things Season 4

Game of Thrones stars are all over the place these days, and we’re sure that the fans are going to love this new development that we have today. Tom Wlaschiha, who played one of the most mysterious characters from Game of Thrones, Jaqen H’ghar, has now appeared in the first teaser trailer for Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 4. Read on!

Before you proceed, SPOILER ALERT! Beware of spoilers if you aren’t caught up with Stranger Things.

Now, as we know, Stranger Things has a year return to Netflix, and we got an official confirmation from Netflix for the fourth season a few months ago. The first teaser trailer for Season 4 of Stranger Things just dropped, and it looks like Tom Wlaschiha has a part to play. Take a look:

Well, there’s two big reveals here. We hadn’t heard any casting rumours or reports about Tom Wlaschiha for Stranger Things Season 4, but he seems to be playing a badass looking Russian officer of some sorts. Secondly, Chief Hopper, played by David Harbour, who actually was shown to die at the end of the last season, is making an appearance, with lesser hair this time.

So exciting! There’s no release date for Stranger Things Season 4 yet, or details about Tom’s role, but we expect these bits to be revealed in the coming weeks as Netflix starts teasing the season more.

Watch a brooding Maisie Williams in latest images from The New Mutants

Maisie Williams a.k.a. Arya Stark from Game of Thrones has emerged as a very popular figure around the globe. In fact, post the show’s run, most of the star cast has moved on to do different and exciting stuff. Williams too has begun to create her own niche. She was recently seen singing “Let it Go” in the new Audi Super Bowl Commercial. Now we have some fresh news on Williams’ next assignment. Read on!

It is not a secret anymore that Maisie Williams will be seen playing a mutant in her next film, The New Mutants. The trailer was released a while ago and Williams impressed everyone with her presence. She is going to play the role of Rahne Sinclair a.k.a. Wolfsbane in the film and we now have some fresh looks out from the film.

Have a look:

Aren’t you impressed? We sure are!

As per Collider, In the comics, Rahne is a devout Catholic who must contend with her seemingly extraordinary mutation. Rahne is able to shape-shift and, true to her codename, frequently transforms into what we recognize as a werewolf. These new images hint at Rahne’s strict religious upbringing, giving us new insight into the character’s psyche.

Isn’t it great to see our beloved Arya Stark doing great in her upcoming projects? We sure hope she goes on to replicate her success of Thrones in whatever she chooses to do next.

The New Mutant is going to release on April 3, 2020, and we can’t keep calm!

How did you like Maisie’s look from the film? Let us know your views in the comments below!

Game of Thrones ended last year leaving fans divided. Some even complained that the entire last season was rushed. But, we can’t evade the fact that the series has now ended for good. Most of the cast members have now moved on. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) has joined the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals and Maisie Williams will be playing Wolfsbane in the upcoming The New Mutants film. Similar is the case of Ian McElhinney, who played Baristan Selmy in Game of Thrones.

Ian McElhinney will be appearing in the two-part finale of Season 12 of Doctor Who airing on BBC One. He reportedly will be encountering the TARDIS Fam in the two-parter, called ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Timeless Children’. 

Ian revealed to Digital Spy:

“I very much enjoyed my time on Doctor Who…The team were a delight to work with and everyone was very supportive and welcoming. All in all, it was a blast.”

Though at this point of time, it isn’t clear which character will he be portraying he reportedly will be joined by Steve Toussaint, known for Deep Water, Mutant Chronicles and The Knock. Ian McElhinney’s character Barristan Selmy – a loyal trustee of Daenerys Targaryen was killed off in Season 5 of Game of Thrones, being ambushed by the Sons of the Harpy in the episode “Sons of the Harpy”.

Ian McElhinney apart from his badass portrayal of Barristan Selmy in Game of Thrones has also starred in The Fall and Krypton.
