Samwell Tarly thinks Daenerys Targaryen is a psychopath, says John Bradley

Game of Thrones Season 8 premiered recently, to an overwhelmingly positive response. After almost a 600-day wait, we finally got to see our favourite characters. While there were some great unions/reunions in there, Samwell Tarly and Daenerys Targaryen‘s first meeting, was particularly messy. Now, actor Jon Bradley, who plays Sam, has revealed that his character thinks Daenerys to be a psychopath. Beware, spoilers follow!

The pair met for the first time in the Season 8 premiere, and it did not go well. Daenerys revealed to Sam that she executed his father and brother, after which Sam seems to be very agitated.

John Bradley recently revealed to The Wrap that Samwell now thinks that Daenerys is a psychopath:

“Sam is now very, very aware that Dany is very imbalanced and very volatile and in quite a dangerous state with people. He sees with his own eyes, and is kind of connecting this to his own set of emotions, just how cold she is and how sacrificial she is in other people’s lives. And he learns the lengths that she’ll go to if somebody decides to disobey her and how her quest for power seems to know no moral code when it comes to that.”

John said that the way Daenerys revealed the news to Sam added insult to injury:

“When she’s talking to him and she’s telling him about his own family, she’s telling him kind of without any sense of compassion at all. She comes at it in a very clinical way, and a very cold and a very detached way. And it feels psychopathic, really, that she didn’t offer him any kind of comfort at all. She says, you know, ‘They refused to bend the knee.’ And that’s a very pragmatic way of dealing with it, ‘They disobeyed me, and so I killed them.’ And in that moment he sees what a dangerous figure she is and that’s what motivates him to tell Jon.”

John also said that the best for Jon and the safety of Gilly and baby Sam motivates Sam. He argued that this is precisely why he does not trust Daenerys. Being Jon’s best friend, it’s likely that Sam’s opinion will carry some weight. We already saw Jon waver a bit when Sam told him the truth. Moving forward, it will be interesting to see how things go.

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!

Rory McCann reveals he was homeless and had to steal food before Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has made the careers of many, but for some, it has been a pure blessing. Case in point, one of our favourite actors on the show, Rory McCann, who played the Hound on the show, revealed that he had quite the struggle with homelessness before landing a role on Game of Thrones. Read on!

Independent reports that Rory discussed his struggles before Thrones during an appearance on the Game of Thrones Reunion Special, hosted by Conan O’ Brien. Talking about living in Iceland before he landed the part of the Hound on Game of Thrones, he said:

“I was in a tent – literally in a tent – stealing food occasionally. Eventually I got a job and sorted myself out, but then suddenly I’m getting driven around in a nice car in the biggest and best show in the world – just shows how your fortunes can change. Amazing.”

He continued:

“I managed to go back [to Iceland] and pay my library fines.”

He had previously talked about how he had landed up in Iceland, in an interview with the Daily Record:

“I had made a Viking film with Gerard Butler and after filming I just went, ‘I’m staying,’ and was there for 11 months.

There wasn’t any acting work at the time. I had said to my agent to phone if anything was happening but it wasn’t, so I just stayed.”

It was coming into winter and some locals told me I was the only man on the whole island living in a tent, so they helped me get into a house and I found work as a carpenter.”

Well, we’re glad Rory landed that audition, because we cannot imagine another actor being the Hound. What about you guys? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
