Maisie Williams Is Going to be Sophie Turner's Bridesmaid

They went from childhood to adulthood together on the Game of Thrones sets. Now, on Sophie Turner’s upcoming Big Day, Maisie Williams will be by her side, as always.

Sophie is tying the knot with fiance Joe Jonas this summer. During the Red Carpet New York Premiere of Game of Throne’s Eighth and final season, she confirmed what we have guessed for long – Maisie is going to be one of her bridesmaids. This has been in the speculations since January 2018, but this is the first time Sophie or anyone said it on record.

While talking to Sophie on the Red Carpet, ET Online’s interviewer informed her that Maisie has spoken about choosing a dress for her wedding. To this Sophie promptly replied:

“I don’t know why she’s thinking of that, I’m giving her the bridesmaid’s dress … Yes, she’s my maid of honour… one of two.”

While Sansa and Arya of House Stark do not see eye to eye most of the time, Sophie and Maisie have been fast friends since the first season. Sophie was 13 years old when she joined the GoT cast, Maisie 11. They grew extremely fond of each other because of their closeness in age, and also a shared lack of prior acting experience.

Maisie and Sophie again showed off their camaraderie in the New York Premiere of Game of Thrones Season 8.

Fast forward ten years, their bond has continued to grow. Sophie had earlier revealed that she would like Maisie to be her bridesmaid, and now it seems like Maisie has said “aye” to that!

Sophie also spoke candidly about her mixed feelings about the series ending and the support she receives from her fiance.

“I put on waterproof mascara tonight because I knew it was going to be a laugh-cry. I’m ready for it … It means so much to have [Jonas] here, it’s just like, the best support, the best person to calm me down and keep me calm, and if I end up crying, I have a shoulder to cry on.”

Well, with a supportive groom-to-be and a loving Maid of Honour in place, Sophie Turner looks like a lucky bride!

Kit Harington spotted in London after checking out of rehab

Kit Harington spotted in London after checking out of rehab

Game of Thrones had one of the most intense filming processes ever, to a degree where each episode was shot like a film. To add to that, many of the stars of the show started their careers with the show and were at it for a whole decade. So it’s obvious that the end of the show was a bit of a shake-up for these stars. One of such stars was Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow. He had checked himself into rehab after the end of the show. He has now been spotted in London after finishing up his time in rehab. Read on!

We had recently reported that Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow had checked into a ‘luxury rehab’ in Connecticut to deal with stress and alcoholism. It was actually more of a “wellness retreat” rather than a typical rehab, as his reps had explained. It looks like Kit is out of rehab now, and looking good, as he was spotted in London recently, reports PopSugar. Take a look:

That’s all we have seen of him. Kit is yet to do any post-rehab interviews or talk about his recovery, but we expect him to be fully back on track. We can’t wait to see the role he takes up next. What about you? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones fans raise more than $55000 for Kit Harington’s charity, Mencap

Game of Thrones fans might have hated the final season of the show, but they aren’t holding off their love for the stars of the show. Only recently, we had reported that fans of the show from Reddit had helped raise over $30,000 for Emilia Clarke’s charity, a figure that has hit $137,000 by now. Looks like the fans didn’t stop there. They have now raised over $55,000 for Kit Harington’s charity, Mencap. Read on!

The campaign was started by Redditor u/AlpineJ0e, and is hosted on JustGiving.com. It’s dedicated to Mencap, a charity Kit Harington has supported for years, which works for equal rights and opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

At the time of writing this article, the campaign has collected over $55,682 (£43,686) for Mencap, and is still going strong. Mencap themselves responded to the effort on Twitter, and even sent a letter to the campaign creator, along with a signed photo of Kit:

Maisie Williams’ X-Men movie “The New Mutants” gets its release date delayed again

Maisie Williams' X-Men movie "The New Mutants" gets its release date delayed again

Game of Thrones might be over, but the careers of its stars are far from it. The stars have moved on with other big projects already. Notably, the Stark sisters, i.e, Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams (Arya) both landed roles in the X-Men Universe. Sophie’s film, Dark Phoenix, recently released in theatres, but Maisie’s The New Mutants has been delayed, for the third time now. Read on!

Now, some of you might be aware that Disney bought Fox out, bringing the rights to the X-Men films back into the family. This means that the fate of ongoing projects hangs in the balance, and The New Mutants is one of them. The movie, which stars Maisie Williams, was initially set to release on April 13, 2018, which was then pushed to February 22, 2019, and once more to August 2, 2019. A new press release by Disney reveals the film has been pushed one more time, to April 3, 2020.

The New Mutants producer Simon Kinberg told Digital Spy the reason behind the latest rescheduling:

“What’s happening is we’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film and it has a new release date from Disney. That’s really it.

Part of it was figuring out what the reshoots were gonna be, the pick-ups, and the other part of it was getting that cast back together.”

Well, let’s just hope that it’s good when it does get released. Disney is surely bound to pick up feedback from Dark Phoenix, which bombed at the box office, with the worst reception for an X-Men movie, ever.

What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
