Most of us know him by his psychopathy and the fact that he’s an evil, cold-hearted murderer and rapist, and Ramsay Bolton really doesn’t leave much scope for us to admire him for anything. He’s the most hated character on Game of Thrones, even more than the wretched Joffrey Baratheon(or Lannister), and since he’s been introduced he has done nothing but prove how ridiculously psychopathic he can get. And no one can really forget how he tortured Sansa Stark. But Iwan Rheon, the actor who plays the Bolton Bastard is hardly anything like the character he portrays. We know that had his acting not been convincing enough, we wouldn’t have hated Ramsay as much as we do now, and hope that Jon Snow does manage to slit his throat and be done with it.
In an interview with The Independent, Iwan spoke about his character and how he felt quite uncomfortable during Sansa’s rape scene and also when he killed his father’s son. Talking about Sansa, he said, “I understand why the reaction’s there because people have watched this girl grow up and they love her. But at the same time there was such an intense backlash about it, and it isn’t the worst thing that’s happened on Game of Thrones. You know, burning a child… nobody seems to go mad about that.”
He also said that it left an impact on him after filming the scene, “It was horrible. I didn’t sleep a wink the night before, when usually I’m quite good at detaching from Ramsay. Also Sophie (Sophie Turner who plays Sansa) is young herself and such a lovely girl… it just felt like nobody wanted to be there and nobody wanted to be doing it and it just filtered all the way through the crew. But you’ve just got to get on with it, and Sophie dealt with it very well.”
He also talked about how he’s very different from Ramsay in real-life, and whom he based his character on. (“I hope people appreciate that I’m not a marauding psychopath.”
“Initially Heath Ledger’s Joker. And then I kind of thought Dennis the Menace… it’s great to have that childlike glee in doing all these horrible things, and then Liam Gallagher’s attitude and walk. But you forget all that stuff after a while.”
Later Iwan also revealed that he wouldn’t want Ramsay to die(if that happens) in a very disappointing way based on how intensely his character has been depicted on the show. “It would be a shame if he just fell down some stairs or something,” he said.
We don’t know for sure whether Ramsay will die (hopefully he does) but Iwan Rheon will surely be missed on Game of Thrones as an actor if that were to happen.
It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all
About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.
Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.
In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.
And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.
“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”
She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.
“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.
Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost’s reunion in the series finale
Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!
Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream
Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.
This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).
“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.
She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.
Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.
Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
