You'll feel "conflicted" about all characters in Game of Thrones Season 8, says Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm)

Game of Thrones has been a solid show because of one great quality: it’s not black and white. Every character in the show is painted in a shade of grey. This is to say that they all have their good and bad. Whether we love or hate them is up to us. Speaking of grey, Jacob Anderson, who plays the role of Grey Worm on the show, recently hinted that we’ll be seeing more of this moral grey area in the final season of the show. Read on!

INSIDER asked Anderson how fans will feel about Grey Worm at the end of the show, and he gave an answer that hinted at some tough testing coming at all our loved heroes:

“Oh, that’s a very difficult question to answer.

Grey Worm goes on a journey this year. He’s in unknown territory, and I think people are going to feel very conflicted about every character in this season. And Grey Worm is no exception. That’s what I’ll say.”

He then talked about what it was like to film the gigantic Battle of Winterfell sequence:

“The whole [experience] of this season has been super bittersweet. It’s been amazing, but it’s also been slightly miserable. There were moments when you’re freezing cold, you’ve got this weird chemical fake snow in your face, and there’s real snow, and you’re wearing armor and trying to fight in all this s—– weather, but then occasionally you look around and you’re like ‘Look how amazing this is.'”

He continued:

“There was one point where I honestly couldn’t see any technical equipment and I was like, ‘I’m just here. This is real.’ It was completely immersive – the full set with mist and snow and all these extras fighting and running past. You couldn’t see any of the crew, so you just felt like you were really in ‘Game of Thrones.'”

He also revealed that he was yet to get around and take a proper look at his wrap gift: framed storyboard of a key scene for his character.

We would love to see which scene David and Dan, the showrunners, picked for Anderson. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

John Bradley says playing Samwell Tarly gave him a stammer

John Bradley says Samwell role gave him a stammer

John Bradley played the character of Samwell Tarly in Game of Thrones for eight seasons, nearly a decade. In a show full of mavericks, geniuses, warriors and dragons, Samwell’s character was perhaps one of the sanest on the show.

Recently while speaking with Giles Paley-Phillips and comedian Jim Daly on the Blank Podcast, he shed some light about his portrayal of Samwell. Bradley said:

“I got into this trap with Sam, I set myself traps, because he had a traumatic childhood and suffered a lot – and it manifested through a stammer and a twitch sometimes”.

Bradley also spoke about how the character of Samwell began affecting his performances outside of Thrones. He added:

Towards the end of that journey, that stammer would turn up in non-Sam acting and I’d do auditions when I’d stammer because it just seemed like the default place that I went to when I acted”.

Bradley found himself so much into the character that, at times his co-stars had to politely push him to speak quicker. He recalled an incident with Kit Harington:

In one scene I came in first with Kit Harington and in the nicest way he said to me “can you come in a bit quicker?” so I can react a bit quicker and I was like “I can’t, I just can’t.

As lovely as the crew were, they assumed it was because I had forgotten my lines. It took me a while to get out of it and it went away over time.” 

Well, John Bradley sure seems like a perfectionist doesn’t he? It almost seems fitting that he played the most studious character of them all in a show full of larger than life characters.

Emilia Clarke reveals she had a hard time with Daenerys’ final Dothraki speech

Game of Thrones behind the scenes bits have been floating around on the Internet these days, since the disc sets for the full series hit the shelves. A new bit now has Emilia Clarke discussing how her final speech in Dothraki was “hell”. Read on!

Entertainment Tonight recently reported about the “Duty is the Death of Love” featurette from disc sets, and Emilia discussed her last speech as Daenerys:

“I knew that speech was going to be really important, and I spent a huge amount of time learning it. And for the first time in my whole Game of Thrones career, I got that word perfect.”

She continued to talk about how it was difficult to remember the language:

“I’m being so brutally honest here — I was in hell learning that speech. This pretend language was literally eating me up. I couldn’t do it. And then, magic happened. I woke up in the morning, went on, and it all came out. I was probably fighting not what I was fighting, but what Dany was doing.”

Well, it definitely must have been hard, watching her character give everything up that quick. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Kristofer Hivju wants a Tormund and Brienne spin-off

Game of Thrones has had a lot good on screen pairings through the run of the show, but there have also been a few ships that never became pairs. One of them was Tormund and Brienne, the subject of many a memes, but sadly we didn’t see enough of it on the show. Kristofer Hivju, however, is all for a Tormund-Brienne spin-off. Read on!

Hivju, who played Tormund, was recently at the UK disc set release event in London, and did a Q&A session, reports Fandom. When asked what he thinks about a Tormund-Brienne spin-off, he replied:

“I’m up for it.”

He added that he would like it to be a rom-com set at Castle Black, with the pair:

“…trying to run it together; it’s 19 minutes per episode.”

He’s clearly thought it through. Now that he’s said it, it honestly wouldn’t be the worst thing to follow up the timeline of the show. He then talked about how Khal Drogo was his favourite character:

“[My favourite scene] was Jason Momoa’s speech in the tent before he kills Daenerys’s brother. He’s just ranting and he’s going all the way.”

Well, we would definitely love that spin-off, and we bet it would fly well with the fans. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
