Lena Headey talks about her emotional goodbye to Game of Thrones on Jimmy Kimmel Live

The much-anticipated and awaited final season of Game of Thrones is coming soon and each week brings in some or the other new update about it. We’ve had a number of interviews of the cast members like Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie, and others and more are expected as we cover another milestone towards April 14. And, this time it’s Lena Headey – Cersei Lannister from the show who had an exclusive interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Cersei Lannister – one of the most critically acclaimed human-villains in Game of Thrones has a lot ahead in the final season. While fans believe she is going to die this season, the Valonqar prophecy, and much more regarding her story arc, Lena totally roots for her character.

At first, when Jimmy asked her about her long hair instead of Cersei Lannister’s blonde short hair (“Turnip” in Lena’s words), Lena replied:

“It’s a wig…It’s the itchy ‘turnip’…I wish I had burned it…Oh, I would burn it but they [David and Dan] would sue me but I’d like to…”

Lena then talked about finishing the filming of the series in October 2018 and being the twelfth one out of it but trying not to give away anything. Then, talking about receiving the scripts every season and the table-reads, she said:

“They usually give us all of them and if anyone says they don’t flick to the end, they’re lying…And then we had a big read-through. We didn’t do one until this final season when we were all in Belfast. It was really emotional.”

Lena also talked about being one of the culprits and screwing up during the table-reads the cast and crew had for Season 8. Like every cast member talking about being emotional in the end and what it was being on Game of Thrones for the last time, she revealed:

“I was like, ‘It’s been nine years, it’s been amazing, and I’m happy to go and find new things’, and then I knew David and Dan – our creators, were doing speeches and giving everybody these drawings of the storyboards, and I suddenly got really emotional at the end, trying to head down the stairs, and they all rushed up and trapped me. And then they gave the speech; it was really moving!”

What the new season would bring for her and other characters would be worth watching! Watch the full interview here:

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!
