Peter Dinklage’s thoughts on his final day on the sets of Game Of Thrones

Fans react to Peter Dinklage's Avengers: Infinity War role

The filming of Game of Thrones Season 8 officially wrapped up back in July and we’ve been waiting for the announcement of the airing date. It’s hard for us as fans to digest that an epic series that lasted for around nine years is finally coming to an end. And, it’s even harder for the cast members for whom Game of Thrones has lately become a family. Peter Dinklage – the actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the show, recently discussed the same with the Indie Wire. Read on.

Peter Dinklage says Tyrion has feelings for Daenerys Targaryen

Previously, we brought you an update where Kit Harington (Jon Snow) shared his views on the series finally coming to an end. Peter Dinklage too discussed what it felt like leaving Game of Thrones and moving on. He said,

“It was very sad…This is not only a great TV show to be a part of, but it was an enormous family to be a part of.”

“I was far from home…I live in New York and we shot the show in Europe, so many times I had to stay there and couldn’t go home on the weekends and really developed deep roots in the community of Ireland and some of the other countries we shot in.”

Speculation on Tyrion’s concerned look on Jon and Dany’s pivotal scene in Game of Thrones season 7 finale

Like Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and others, Peter too had wrapped up filming months ago. We imagine it would have been an emotional day for him like his other co-stars to work on the last day and biding everyone a goodbye. Talking about his last day of filming on the set of Game of Thrones, the actor ended by saying:

“[It was] definitely hard to say goodbye to because it wasn’t just saying goodbye to the show, [I] was saying goodbye to a life over there.”

Peter has started his role in Game of Thrones back in Season 1 with the episode ‘Winter is Coming’. His character was shown to be a clever but an unavowed son of Tywin Lannister, who took pride in repeating the motto ‘a Lannister always pays his debts’. But, his character took a sudden drift in the Fourth Season when he was sentenced to death for Joffrey’s murder, which he didn’t commit. Eventually, now he serves as the Hand of Queen Daenerys Targaryen. The 2018 Emmy winner has much left in his character’s arc – the final season shall reveal!

What do you think will be the role of Tyrion Lannister in the final season? Tell us in the comments.

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.
