Joe Dempsie thinks the Game of Thrones finale might divide opinions

Everybody’s eyes are now turned to the final battle with Cersei, now that the Night King and his army of the dead are safely out of the way. It might not have elephants but it can hardly be anything short of epic. Game of Thrones has long established itself as one TV show that has the nards to kill off important characters without batting an eyelid. We can only imagine the bloodbath that the final battle will hold if this tradition is to be carried forward. Theories are flying every which way about the possible ending to the series. Gendry actor Joe Dempsie has weighed in on the topic too.

Speaking to Digital Spy, he said, “It’s so hard to end anything – to bring anything to a conclusion that you feel is broadly satisfying, and without compromising, and being surprising as well.” From the sound of this, the ending to the series might be the second big thing after the Night King’s death that might lead to divided opinions in the Game of Thrones fandom.

He went on to say, “I’ve been talking about that a lot with Game of Thrones. I don’t envy David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss, showrunners] with the task of bringing this thing to an end. There are millions of people waiting with bated breath, and they’ve all got their own idea about how to do it. You can’t possibly please everyone.

Joe Dempsie seems to have kept a tight hold on his tongue when it comes to the ending, saying, “I’ve not told anyone [how it ends], because I genuinely don’t want to spoil it.” I know some people who’d do well to take a leaf or two from Dempsie’s book.

As far for his theory about the ending dividing the fan base, I guess we’ll just have to wait for the Game Of Thrones finale to drop on 19th May.

“No one even knew I spoke English,” says Jason Momoa about struggling after Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is the kind of show that is an up and coming actor’s dream job. Many of the actors on the show have validated this opinion, and here is no doubt that all of them have benefited from their time on the show. However, there have been certain struggles attached to it, as well. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, and is arguably the most loved star from the cast of Thrones, recently revealed his struggles after leaving the show. Read on!

In a recent interview with Esquire, Momoa discussed how things were like for him after he left Game of Thrones. Apparently he was put in a corner because of the kind of character that Drogo was:

“I mean, where do you put Drogo? He’s not going in a rom-com. No one even knew I spoke English.”

While Momoa had been acting for a while, Game of Thrones was his big break. He said:

“I’m not known for my acting. I’m known for action. I don’t say a lot of things or use big sentences.”

He reflected on his earlier days in the industry, working on Baywatch:

“I fell in love with the art of acting. But no one took me seriously. Baywatch isn’t known for its . . . quality of acting. I couldn’t get an agent to save my life.”

Momoa’s latest project was Dune, on which he worked alongside Timothée Chalamet, who he thinks is very talented:

“He’s so fucking talented, man. I don’t know. I’m a little dumber, needed some time. Which is probably the best for me, because it would have been bad if it happened when I was younger. I just would have fucked it all up.”

Well, we’re grateful that Jason is doing well now, and there’s no doubt he’s one of the most loved and in-demand actors in the industry. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Alfie Allen has the best reaction to everybody asking him about the Game of Thrones ending

Game of Thrones ended after a decade long run, and being everybody’s favourite show, we haven’t stopped talking about the ending, ever since. Many of the recent cast interviews have also had them having to answer questions about the end of the show, and the routine is getting old at this point. Obviously the stars must be tired of it by now, and Alfie Allen (Theon) had the best answer to one such questions. Read on!

Alfie was recently on the red carpet of the premiere of his new film, Jojo Rabbit, where ET asked him what he felt about the ending of Game of Thrones, now that some time has passed. Alfie’s reaction was priceless:

Alfie wrapped it up with only three words:

“I’m over it.”

Well, you heard it folks. Theon is over it, and you should be too.

It’s a given that Alfie is not alone in feeling this way. The stars have moved on to other projects, and are busy promoting those. So it’s a given that being asked about Game of Thrones’ ending while in the middle of these promos has to be at least somewhat annoying.

Kit Harington says he would love to play Severus Snape in a Harry Potter prequel

Now that Game of Thrones is over, the stars of the show are open to doing new projects. While the person that was arguably the lead star of Thrones, Kit Harington (Jon Snow) already has a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he says he would still be down to play Severus Snape in a Harry Potter prequel. Read on!

Kit was recently at the ACE Comic Con, and like we reported, he discussed his entry into the MCU. However, Kit also talked about another big fandom he loves, and that is Harry Potter. Speaking of houses, he said he believed Jon Snow was a Hufflepuff, but has a different choice for his own self:

“I am a Gryffindor. I’ve thought very deeply about it.”

He also revealed that his favourite from the series was either Prisoner or Azkaban, or Goblet of Fire. The conversation then moved to whether Kit would be open to starring in a prequel film surrounding the Marauders, James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew, to which Kit had an answer ready:

“Snape is the best character, ever. The storyline of Snape. Severus Snape is the most tragic, wonderful, brilliant…He’s a character you hate, and then end up loving. He’s just phenomenal. I don’t think I’m right for him, so I’ll play Sirius. But, whoever gets to play Snape, that’s a great character.”

Well, you can expect fan casting rosters to spring back into action now. What role do you think Kit would be fit for? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
