Sansa Stark meets Daenerys Targaryen in the latest Game Of Thrones Season 8 teaser

Game of Thrones Season 8 seems just over the horizon with less than 4 months left for it to air. We’ve already been treated with a teaser named Dragonstone and two actual footages from the season released by HBO. And, it’s not a surprise when one or the other team member teases the new season for you. This time it’s HBO’s Chief Richard Plepler who feels Game of Thrones Season 8 will be monumental with movie-length episodes.

Plepler while talking to the Variety post the Golden Globes on Sunday that he has seen the rough cut of the final six episodes i.e. without any special effects.  He said:

“It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie.”

“They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”

21st Webby Awards winners announced, Game of Thrones wins two!

This exactly matches with the kind of hype the cast members like Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Sophie Turner(Sansa Stark), and Gwendoline Christie(Brienne of Tarth) have made for the final season of Game of Thrones. Especially, Gwen who had teased the season by saying the fans would have to get therapy after the series ends.

Also, showrunner David Benioff had revealed at the Emmys this year why the season is taking such a long time to air. He had revealed to Digital Spy,

“The final season is taking a long time because it’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done…Even though it’s six episodes, it was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or shooting it…It’s quite extraordinary what the crew and the actors created, and I think when people see it they’ll understand why it took so long.”

“No-one’s going on vacation or slacking off, it’s just that last season is far beyond what we’ve ever attempted before, and it is taking a really f**king long time – and I hope it will be worth it.”

This truly leads us to believe that though Game of Thrones didn’t air for more than a year and took so long for filming and special effects, it will be worth it! What do you guys think? 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!
