Naomi Watts confirmed to play a lead role in the Game Of Thrones ‘Long Night’ prequel

Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming in the first half of 2019 but what happens once the series ends once and for all? Next-in-line will be a Game of Thrones spinoff show whose pilot has already been ordered to be filmed in February next year. And, the great news is that we’ve just got an update on who will play the lead in the same. And, she will be none other than the very talented Naomi Watts! Read on.

A rumor at first, the news was in the air around the second week of October and now has been confirmed by the Variety. According to them, much isn’t known about the character being played by Watts but that it is of “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.” And, this is the same prequel series being developed by George RR Martin and Jane Goldman.

The synopsis of the new series reads:

“Taking place thousands of years before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ the series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend … it’s not the story we think we know.”

Moreover, George also shared this update on his blog and wrote:

Jane Goldman scripted the LONG NIGHT pilot and will be running the show.   She and her team are busy in London right now, neck deep in casting, and I expect some more names will be announced soon.”

You may know Naomi Watts for portraying the role of Ann Darrow in the movie King Kong (2005) or Maria in the Impossible (2012). I would love to watch her play a noble lady of House Targaryen from Valyria – from the times before the rise of ‘Aegon the Conqueror’.

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn't burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones series finale was hated by the fandom to a degree where it triggered millions of people into signing a petition to remake the final season of the show. However, if there was one thing that everybody liked, it was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. Most of the fandom agreed that this was a great choice, but now it seems as though that might not have been intentional like we had thought. Read on!

Now, as you might know, Emmy nominated scripts are made available online, and with the series finale of Game of Thrones, titled “The Iron Throne” getting nominated, the script followed soon. What we saw in the show was Drogon burning the throne down, and the general interpretation was that Drogon was mad at the throne for being the real reason behind Daenerys’ death, and that Drogon wanted to break the wheel like his mother always wanted. However, the script has a different version of how it went down:

“Drogon wants to burn the world, but he will not kill Jon. He breathes fire on the back wall, blasting down what remains of the great red blocks of stone. We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration.”

Well, that’s awkward. The very reason why everybody liked the melting was that they assumed it was because Drogon was smart enough to see that it was the throne’s fault. Now, this looks like just another reason for the fans to hate the showrunners and writers/directors of the finale, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the meantime, the PDF of the script has been locked down on the Emmy website, requiring a login to be able to access.

What do you guys think about this reason? Would you have preferred it to be intentional? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa celebrated his 40th birthday with a 168-pound Guinness and whiskey cake

If there’s one Game of Thrones star that knows how to party, it’s Jason Momoa. The actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, recently celebrated his 40th birthday at a surprise party thrown for him by his friends. Apparently, the party involved a giant 168-pound cake made out of Guinness and whiskey! Read on.

We had reported about the mini-reunion that Momoa had with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke, who was present at the party. Now, further details have been revealed, and it looks like the cake was the star of the party, reports INSIDER.

Made by UK-based baker Aggy Dadan of Edible By Aggy, the cake was infused with Guinness and whiskey and took a week to make. It was served on a giant sugar surfboard, with a wave on one side and a mountain on the other, two things Momoa is known to love. It also featured mini-figurines of Momoa, shown climbing the mountain and playing the guitar while surfing on the wave. Check out the pictures:

Dagan said:

“I was thinking, what could be better than putting the whole thing on a sugar surfboard. We incorporated a little mini pint of Guinness, because he loves Guinness, and a little box of donuts for his best friend [Mada Abdelhamid], who calls himself ‘Donut Man.’

Jason is a big family man, so [Abdelhamid] wanted to include things that represented that in the cake. They left it pretty much up to me, which I love. I love when people let me use my creativity.”

Dagan had previously made a 3/4 scale Aquaman bust cake for Momoa for the premiere of the film, and Momoa seems to have stuck with her.
