Entertainment Weekly reveals the entire cast of Game of Thrones prequel

With the release of the second teaser of Game of Thrones Season 8 and the reveal of the exact airing date, we literally have less than 3 months left in the new season to air. The new season will begin on April 14 and end on May 19, 2019. The question that remains is what then? But, we all know there’s definitely room for more with the prequel series beginning to film in February.

After the announcement of two main cast members – Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse and that the prequel series will be returning to Northern Ireland for filming, we now have a new set of cast members – all thanks to Entertainment Weekly. These include:

Naomi Ackie: Naomi is known for her role in movies like Yardie and Lady Macbeth. She has also played a lead in the series The Bisexual. She will also have a lead role in Star Wars: Episode IX.

  Denise Gough: Denise – an Irish actress – is known for her works like People, Places, and Things and Angels in America.

Jamie Campbell Bower: Jamie was earlier supposed to be playing the role of Ser Waymar Royce in the unaired pilot but has eventually got another contract with the Game of Thrones franchise.

Sheila Atim: Sheila Atim is known for her stage plays like Harlots.

Ivanno Jeremiah: Ivanno is known for Humans and Black Mirror on Netflix.

Georgie Henley: Georgie is a well-known actress who once played the role of Lucy in Disney’s Narnia franchise.

Alex Sharp: Sharp is known for his works like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and How to Talk to Girls in Parties.

Toby Regbo: Toby has starred in Reign, the Last Kingdom, and Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald.

Apart from these cast members, the director for the pilot episode will be SJ Clarkson, who has directed and produced Collateral, airing on Netflix.  Apart from this, she has also directed Orange Is the New BlackDexterBates Motel, and the pilot for Jessica Jones.

Though the official name of the new series hasn’t been announced yet with these fantastic cast members and the director of the pilot episode, the series in my view will be a total gig. Also, we have George R.R. Martin and the writer Jane Goldman who are already hyping up the series a lot. The official description of the 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’s 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.”

More juicy details are expected to drop once the filming of the pilot begins in February. Let’s hope the new series will uphold the Game of Thrones franchise name. What do you think about the new cast details of the prequel revealed by Entertainment Weekly? Tell us in the comments.

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.

What do you think of the Game of Cones ice cream shop? Tell us in the comments below!
