After contributing to ‘Long Night’ prequel George R.R. Martin has a new spin-off idea

Published

on


Whether it’s the Game of Thrones TV series or the upcoming prequel series – George R.R. Martin is the one who rules all. Whether you credit his creative mind or the fantastic character building ability, it’s all because of him that we never get over with Game of Thrones. Moreover, it is because of him Game of Thrones is a big success and on the peak amongst the popular on-demand TV series of 2018.

Well, George’s new work ‘Fire and Blood’ was released in November and he has also dropped many clues for the end-game of Game of Thrones TV series in the same. He also confirmed that he is on his way to finishing the much awaited and anticipated next instalment to ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ – ‘The Winds of Winterin a secret hideaway.

After contributing to ‘Long Night’ prequel George R.R. Martin has a new spin-off ideaAfter the main TV series of ‘Game of Thrones’, fans await the spinoff show based on the legend of the Long Night whose casting has already begun and the pilot episode is planned to be filmed in February. George recently answered a few related questions on the New York Times, and also shared a new spin-off series idea. About the progress of the prequel, he said,

“That’s the show I’m calling ‘The Long Night.’ HBO said, ‘Don’t call it ‘The Long Night,’ so that’s not the official title. But I still think of it as “The Long Night.” That’s the one Jane Goldman wrote, and they’re gearing up for preproduction. Naomi Watts has been cast, so that’s very exciting.”

When asked if his concept for the prequel varied from Jane Goldman, George replied:

“Well, she had to add something. If you look at the published books so far, there’s really very little material about that — a sentence here, a sentence there. Old Nan tells a tale that takes up a paragraph. So Jane had to create the characters, the settings and some of the events, and we had to look at everything that was said and say, “O.K., here’s what was said at this point, we need to make it consistent to that.”

We kicked around some ideas and I made some suggestions. But mostly it’s been Jane running with it. It’s set thousands of years before “Game of Thrones.” King’s Landing does not exist. The Iron Throne does not exist. There are no dragons there.”

After contributing to ‘Long Night’ prequel George R.R. Martin has a new spin-off ideaTalking about the possibility of Ice Spiders in the prequel – the ones we’ve heard in the stories of Old Nan – George laughed and said,

“There might be! I will say nothing about that. Maybe the ice spiders were just a legend! Have you read the new book.”

This really gives us chills for the same in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones – if the showrunners really wish to do that in their budget! Finally sharing his idea for a new spinoff, George said:

“I wanted to do a show called “Spear Carriers,” which would actually be set during the events of “Game of Thrones,” but it wouldn’t be following Dany, Tyrion and Jaime. They would all be there in the background like Hamlet, and it would be more like, “Here’s a story about a guy in the City Watch; here’s a story about a prostitute at one of Littlefinger’s brothels; here’s a story about a mummer who’s in town to do juggling and tricks.” And they all get caught up in the events. I think that kind of show would be a lot of fun to do. Maybe I’ll be able to convince them to do it!”

Lena Headey congratulates shame nun Hannah Waddingham on her first Emmy win

Hannah Waddingham was scared she would start “lactating” while filming ‘Walk of Shame’ on hearing her baby cry

Game of Thrones was like a huge family, consisting of varied personalities coming together to make a great show. No matter how adverse their roles were on-screen, they were quite friendly in real life. Take for example, the case of Cersei’s torturer Septa Unella. The two characters couldn’t see eye to eye in the fantasy series. However, in real life, Hannah Waddingham (Unella) and Lena Headey are close friends. Headey recently congratulated her friend on Instagram when she won her first Emmy Award.

Hannah Waddingham was named outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series during the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night for her role as Rebecca Welton on the beloved Apple+ series Ted Lasso. Headey posted a heartwarming congratulatory message to Waddingham on her Instagram, complete with a picture of Waddingham looking stunning in an asymmetrical peach-colored gown:

Though Lena never won an Emmy for her performance in Game of Thrones, no matter how deserving it was, we can understand her excitement when she found out her best friend had recently won her first Emmy. We just wish Lena had won her share as well, because she was exceptional on Game of Thrones as Cersei Lannister.

Let’s join Lena Headey in congratulating Hannah Waddingham on her Emmy win. Leave your well wishes in the comments below!

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

George R. R. Martin is one of the most famous fantasy writers of present times. If not for him, we wouldn’t be having the amazing world of Game of Thrones, HBO’s fantasy epic based on his A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Though much of his fanbase has grown weary of him, for making them wait for the next book in the series ‘Winds of Winter’, he is still a coveted literary figure, and no one can deny his importance in the entertainment industry.

Martin turned 73 on Monday, September 20, 2021, and birthday wishes have been pouring in for the veteran writer. He shared a nice poem about getting old on his blog Not a Blog:

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

I grow old… I grow old…

I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

((with thanks to T.S. Eliot))”

It is true that Martin is getting old, and many fans are worried if he’ll ever get to finish his novels. However, it is also true that he has been promising fans he will deliver the much-awaited books, while he is still working on other projects. We can only hope he is true to his word. What do you think about it? Talk to us in the comments below!

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

When you watch Game of Thrones, you always swear allegiance to a particular House or two, be it Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, or Greyjoy. But when it comes to ice creams, it becomes a really tough choice. And one particular shop in Cornwall is not making it easy for Game of Thrones fans at all. A Game of Thrones ice cream shop, Game of Cones, located in Fowey, Cornwall, UK, is making your dreams come true, in the form of your favourite sweet and icy dessert.

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

The dessert shop in Cornwall sells your favourite ice creams and milkshakes with a Game of Thrones twist. Over 33 flavours are available on their menu for you to choose from, each sharing name with a character on HBO’s epic fantasy. There’s also a House of Dragons cabinet for people to sit and enjoy their delicacy. It sounds awfully similar to the name of HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel!

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

We know that Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is being filmed at various locations in Cornwall, as many pictures have been leaked online with the cast in costume. Game of Cones will surely make a huge profit if the prequel lifts off.
