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.)

Emilia Clarke understands why fans were p***ed over Daenerys’ fate in Season 8 finale

It has been 2 years, and it is still the hot topic of several online debates amongst fan communities across the internet. The controversial final season of Game of Thrones. Some of the fans were so disappointed that they petitioned for a rewrite of the final season. Some actors, like Charles Dance, even agreed to sign it. Even the mother of dragons understands and agrees with the viewers. Actress Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the show, was especially sad about the downfall of her character.

Clarke told Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, “I get it. I get why people were p***ed. I totally get it. But me being the actor, you can’t do justice to the character that you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into for a decade without getting on the same page. Do you know what I mean? So like, I’m not going to be there being like, “Fine, I’ll do the scene, whatever. So p***ed.”

Emilia explained that as an actor, regardless of where the story leads, ‘you have to turn up’.

“You have to turn up and you have to… because why? Because you’re doing it for you and you’re doing it for her and you’re doing it for the show and you’re doing it for the storytelling. So, I’m an actor. I get given a story and I need to tell that story,” she said.

Emilia is currently writing her own comics, and hopefully, she’ll give an ending to this character she had hoped for Dany. Do you agree with Emilia? Talk to us in the comments below!

Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa gets candid about Justice League Snyder Cut

Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa gets candid about Justice League Snyder Cut

Jason Momoa’s movie the Aquaman was a huge success for the DCEU (DC Extended Universe). The movie made huge profits and was applauded by fans all over the world. Aquaman was earlier regarded as a lame, fish-talking hero with little to no use. The character was made fun of by many comic book fans across the world. However, with the introduction of Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa as the titular hero, everything changed. Aquaman is now one of the coolest heroes in the DC roster, thanks to Momoa.

Momoa has always been an ardent supporter of Zack Snyder and his vision for the DCEU. He talked to Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show about how happy he was when Snyder’s dream came to life. He said:

I love Zack, and that’s kinda what I signed up for eight years ago, is to have his vision. The cool thing about that four-hour piece is that I didn’t reshoot anything. That was all there. It’s so interesting when people come up to me and they’re like ‘Oh, I really love this, and it’s so detailed, and it explains so much,’ and I’m like ‘Yeah, that’s what we went and shot, I didn’t have to redo anything.”

He continued, “So because of the tragedy, I’m happy we made one, but I’m really happy that we got to release his art, and a lot of fans are happy. The truth of it is I like the four hours, it’s just a four-part series. So I like the extended and spending time with the characters.”

Momoa also lost a friendly match of Water War against the host recently. What do you think of the Snyder Cut? Tell us in the comments below!

Outlander's Sam Heughan tried out for several roles on Game of Thrones 7 times

Sam Heughan might be a familiar name to the fans of the popular show Outlander, but there’s another TV series he wished to be a part of. Not just him, quite a lot of famous actors tried to get a role on Game of Thrones, and sadly, they didn’t get the chance. Sam revealed how badly he wanted to be on HBO’s hugely successful epic.

Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, the Scottish hero of Starz’s Outlander, revealed he auditioned for various roles on Game of Thrones. In an interview with Vulture, he said, “I auditioned for Game of Thrones seven times! Loads of times. I auditioned for Renly, Loras, some of the members of the Night’s Watch. And I’d always get so close! I’d be like, “Guys, just give me a sword!” [Laughs.] Everyone was going in for those parts. But you know, it’s funny about those things.”

You’re up for so many things, and coming from those auditions, and testing on other shows, I had more experience, more experience with the process. And maybe I was more confident. And I don’t know, something about this one just felt right. This part felt different. I knew this character. And felt a connection with him. I knew where he had come from.”
