Pedro Pascal – who played the role of ‘The Red Viper’ – Oberyn Martell in Season 4 of Game of Thrones has become the newest face of the Star Wars TV series. He has been chosen for the Star Wars Series “The Mandalorian,” which will premiere on Disney+.

The actor had been previously rumoured for playing a role in the series and now sources have confirmed this to the Variety. The much-anticipated series has been written for television by Jon Favreau and will feature the events that took place between the fall of the Empire and the emergence of the first order.

All Star Wars fans must excitedly wait for this as the TV series will follow the story of a lone gunfighter in the outer galaxy away from the rule of the New Republic.

The name of famous directors like Dave Filoni from “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels,” Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope’s), and Deborah Chow (“Jessica Jones”) have also been linked with the series.

Disney had also announced the name of Favreau as the executive producer, along with Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is another name in the list who will be the co-executive producer.

Pascal along with starring as a much-loved character in Game of Thrones and has done fantastic roles in “Narcos”  “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” “The Equalizer 2,” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.” Moreover, he has also finished filming the next movie in line in the DC Extended Universe after “Shazam” – “Wonder Woman 1984.”

The last we saw of Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones was when he had given a tough fight to the Mountain. If not for his act of provoking Gregor by asking him to confess, he would still be a major player in the series. Also we fans wouldn’t have hated the Dorne plot and the Sand Snakes so much!

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
