HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

We have seen Maisie Williams grow up over the years while watching Game Of Thrones, and the journey of her character from the cute little Arya Stark to one of the most ruthless killers has been nothing but riveting. But, ‘A Night of The Seven Kingdoms’ was one of those most unexpected (which is very much expected from GoT) episodes when all of us discovered perhaps the wildest side of Arya Stark. And when you are probably going to die soon, why not do the things that you have never done before?

In an interview with EW, Masie Williams spoke about the much talked about Arya-Gendry scene. “At first, I thought it was a prank,” the former Emmy nominee says. “I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And the showrunners were like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.’ Oh f—k!

Turns out Gendry is a Lucky bastard indeed!

The scene plays out with Arya interrogating Robert Baratheon’s illegitimate son, about his past relationships. Turns out Arya was 4th for him (FYI).

Well, the internet might love it or hate it, it did happen and probably for good. As a character, Arya has always been on a mission to survive, take revenge and kill. Being with Gendry it didn’t just mean one night of pleasure but way more than that. For once we saw Arya get her touch back with humanity.

This is something she’s stayed away from, an emotion we’ve never really seen her engage with”, said showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss. “It’s interesting to see Arya be a bit more human, speak more normally about things people are scared of”.

Masie Williams shared more details about “the scene”:

In the beginning, everyone was really respectful,” she says. “No one wants to make you feel uncomfortable which kind of makes you feel more uncomfortable, because no one wants to look at anything that they shouldn’t look at, which in turn makes you feel like you look awful because everyone is kind of like—“ [Williams averts her eyes]. “You want people to act more normal.

To the ones who are wondering if Maisie and her character are too young — in the show, Arya is now 18 years old and Gendry, between 23 to 27 (Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, is 22 and Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, is 31.)

Tell us in the comment below if you ship the new love birds in Winterfell. And even if you didn’t, we are still thrilled about what’s next on the Jon and Danny front. What about you?

Kit Harington looks back at his fondest memory from Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has been over for a while now, but we’re still obsessing over it.

Read on!

Kit was recently at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards where he was the only Game of Thrones actor nominated for one. Ryan Seacrest of E! Caught up with them for a short interview bit on the red carpet. Check the video out:

Seacrest noted he was the only Game of Thrones member present at the awards (except Jason Momoa). Kit said:

“I haven’t got my gang. It’s odd. I haven’t been to these things without the rest of us around. So I’m a little jealous of the Succession dudes.”

Kit was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) category but did not win. Seacrest then asked him if he still thought about Jon Snow:

“I think about him all the time. It was always just getting into costume the first day back, getting into that outfit and just sort of being back on set, back with him on character. I loved it. It’s in retrospect that you start loving it. It does go by fast. Ten years, like that.”

Well, we hope Kit knows that we miss Jon Snow just as much as he does.  what do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Games of Thrones' cast dissects the success of the show

On asked about why the show became such a global cultural phenomenon, Maisie Williams gestured towards herself!

Sophie Turner on the other hand said:

“Fantastical elements that gave the escapism, the very human interaction and emotions” was what she believed was the perfect combination.

Kristofer Hivju a.k.a. Tormund Giantsbane on the show thought:

“It is so much that is unexpected, it doesn’t follow any rules of storytelling.” He also added the sheer amount of hard work that about 2000 people put in on the show had also something to do about making the show a giant success.

Jerome Flynn that played the character of Bronn on the show said:

“The richness of character that George originally created had so much wide array of emotions. The job the makers did of translating the characters from book to the screen and also the epic nature that HBO brought to the show”

Flynn believed are all part of the reasons why the show was such a massive success. Isaac Hempstead on the other hand believed:

“The attention to detail on the show was unparalleled. Literally, the books on the show were handwritten by the props department and you might only see it for 2 minutes..”

He also credited writer George R. R. Martin for creating such a vast universe through his books.

Wasn’t it nice to see the whole cast talking about the show so fondly? Let us know why you thought the show became such a big success?
