Naomi Watts says Game of Thrones prequel is ‘exciting’ but refuses to spill any beans

Published

Game of Thrones Season 8 is underway with less than 80 days left in its premiere. While we await more updates on the new season, the prequel or the ‘unnamed’ spin-off show is expected to begin filming the next month.

A couple of weeks ago, we’ve had a number of updates regarding the same – new names added to the cast list like Sheila Atim, Jaime Campbell Bower, and more – apart from Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse who were announced to play the lead. Latest from Naomi Watts is that she recently had an interview with the Variety where she talked about the prequel without revealing much.

Upon being asked to reveal a small detail about the prequel series, Naomi replied:

“Do you really think I’m going to tell you that? Are you trying to catch me off guard?”    

Well, of course, we do understand that all Game of Thrones cast members are supposed to keep mum on any detail on the series and are made to sign a non-disclosure document prior to coming aboard. And, Naomi is one of such cast members now. Upon being asked how excited she was for getting a role in Game of Thrones franchise, she replied:

“It’s a fantastic world, isn’t it? I think there are so many brilliant elements to that series that make it very exciting, very appealing…I don’t want to dig myself into a big hole here… All I want to say is it’s very exciting…I’ll say that again and again and again — and nothing else.”

The prequel begins filming in February, and we will surely keep you updated with the same. So, how excited are you for Season 8 and the new spin-off series? Tell us in the comments section down below.

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!
