Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) joins the cast of the Crown on Netflix

It’s a harsh truth that Game of Thrones is coming to an end within the next six months. All cast members are moving ahead in their careers some getting a haircut, some joining the cast of new TV series, and others busy attending a family wedding. And, so is Charles Dance – the 72-year-old actor who once played the role of Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones.

Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) says he would love to return for a Game of Thrones prequel

The latest we’ve heard about him is that he has joined the cast of the much-anticipated TV series on Netflix ‘The Crown’. He will be joining the series from the third season and playing the role of Lord Louis Mountbatten – the favourite great-uncle of Prince Charles, played by Josh O’Connor. Some pictures of him on the sets surfaced on the internet fueling up the news a bit more and prove that the duo will be sharing a lot of screentime together this season.

As revealed by the Telegraph, Dance will be involved a lot not only with the storyline of Prince Charles but also his arc of affection towards young Camilla. The third season will mainly focus on Queen Elizabeth II’s reign in the 60s and 70s and how these youngsters became close and later a couple.

Their relationship eventually ends with the Prince travelling overseas to join the Royal Army. But, some speculate that Lord Mountbatten had a huge role to play in ending their relationship so that the Prince could ultimately wed his granddaughter. Will the new season touch this major plot point?

The last we saw of Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones was in Season 4 during Tyrion Lannister’s escape from the black cells. Tyrion after his escape goes to confront Shae – whom he sees, much to surprise lying in his father’s bed. After killing her, he goes to confront his father with a crossbow in his hand. He finds Tywin in the privy and angrily fires two bolts, thus killing him.

The new season of Game of Thrones airs in 2019 and so does the Crown and like the former much is expected from the new season of the Crown too! Will Charles Dance be able to prove ‘the Lion’s Legacy’ in the Crown too? Tell us in the comments.

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!
