The worst thing about the Battle of Winterfell was sitting through it, says Isaac Hempstead-Wright

Bran Stark had it the easiest during Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3, some would argue. He sat through most of it heavily protected and Arya saved him from Night King just in the nick of time. However, Isaac Hempstead-Wright would rather have been up and running with the others. The reason? It’s bloody hard to be sitting exactly in the same place and posture for hours and hours!

In an interview with E! Online, Isaac said that he was pretty jealous of his castmates during the 55 night long crazy shoot schedule. Hear it from him:

“The really annoying thing is the wheelchair had to be set in a very specific way—the furs over it had to be kept between takes for continuity. Whenever the scene cut, everyone else could get up and move around and have a chat and I’d be stuck in my f–king wheelchair being like, guys, can you come and talk to me because I can’t bloody move! I think there was one particular [scene] where I was there for a good hour and a half, stuck in that bloody chair.”

That was not the only challenging part about the battle episode though, the night shoots took their toll.

“It’s really disorientating when you’re working all through the night,” said the 20-year-old, “especially when you finish the day and you’re like, that’s a hard day’s work, [let’s] go for a pint. It’s like, oh no, I can’t. It’s six in the morning.”

Talking about the rest of the season, Isaac says he particularly enjoyed freaking Jaime Lannister out with his “The things we do for love” line in episode 2. In his words:

“Everyone looks at Bran like, it’s that weird kid in the corner again. But Jaime knows exactly what’s up.”

But now all that is over, and his ten years journey with Bran Stark is over too. Like his castmates, Isaac too was very emotional. But his takeaway from the set is somewhat weird, unlike his castmates. Isaac reveals he had forgotten to keep anything for himself so he just grabbed the first things he saw on his last day on set.

“I grabbed a wooden spoon and a straw bowl and a little wooden tub of Vaseline. I don’t know why there was Vaseline in it, I don’t know what it was supposed to be. I don’t think they’ll sell for much on eBay when I’m poor!”

That does sound like the sort of bizarre things the Three-Eyed Raven would do, to be honest! What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa opens up about life with family

Real-life is often different from reel life. The celebrities we idolize often face regular problems like normal people. We might want a life like theirs, but ignore the struggles they had to face. For example, Game of Thrones macho man Jason Momoa. Though he appears fearsome as Khal Drogo and majestic as Aquaman on-screen, he’s completely different in real life. The 41-year-old actor recently opened up about his life off-screen in an interview with Men’s Health magazine.

The Game of Thrones star revealed, “I may look big and tough, but I’m not. I’m nothing like Khal Drogo. I’m not even the king of my own house! I’m absolutely terrified of my wife.”

Momoa loves his family. He said, “We’ve all gotten so much closer. My wife is very sophisticated and smart and our kids and I are kind of like animals that need to be trained a little better. I’m constantly a work in progress, and I’ve just been trying to get better as a father and a husband.” 

Jason has been through a lot, without letting anyone know about his troubles. He recently revealed in an interview how his family was facing financial troubles after Game of Thrones. It is tough to imagine someone as popular as he went broke. Things got better for him after the Justice League.

Jason Momoa describes Yoga as ‘the hardest thing' he’s ever done

Game of Thrones achieved great success and popularity in the past decade. The show set the bar for television series in terms of its story, scenery, CGI and battle scenes. However, it was also famous for another reason, a collection of well-built, tight and ripped bodies on-set. They caused awe amongst the audience, even encouraging them to get their own set of 6-pack-abs. Game of Thrones’ handsome hunk Jason Momoa, shared his secrets to a fit body with Men’s Health magazine.

Jason Momoa describes Yoga as ‘the hardest thing' he’s ever done

The 41-year-old actor revealed his workout regime in an interview with the renowned magazine. However, he was terrified of doing Yoga. He said,  “So I tried yoga the other day, and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I’d rather squat a car. Climbing El Capitan would be easier than doing two hours of yoga. I can’t bend over anymore! My hamstrings are so tight. It’s pathetic.”

Momoa added, “I was in a yoga class with these older ladies in Topanga and everyone was just holding their arms up and I was like, ‘This is so hard!’”.

He also talked about his love for outdoor activities, “I rock climb a lot. Maybe I’m an ape. I love the way it feels. I like being upside down. I always loved climbing trees as a kid and swinging in the breeze.”

Momoa had revealed how his family was facing financial troubles in an interview earlier. What do you think of Momoa’s regime? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Iain Glenn discusses the dark side of cycling as shown in his film ‘The Racer’

Game of Thrones' Iain Glenn turns to cycling's dark side in The Racer

It is always fun to see our favourite actors play out radically different roles. Iain Glenn, who played the honourable and heroic Ser Jorah Mormont, was seen playing a not-so-heroic role in The Racer.

Directed by Kieron J Walsh, the movie circles around a series of scandals that took place at the 1998 Tour de France. The film was the opening film for the Cork International Film Festival. Though fictional, The Racer shows the dangerous lengths teams will go to for a competitive edge. Iain Glen plays the team’s Mr Fixit with the syringes and vials.

Iain Glenn talked to the Irish Examiner about the movie, “I studied documentaries and a couple of films just to get to know the world it occupied. What drew me to the script was it didn’t hold back its punches. I thought it was a very frank and honest, quite a wry, insightful look at a particularly bad period for drug abuse within the sport.”

He continued, “That tour became known as the Tour de Drugs because of the amount of drugs that were going down at the time. The people within the team and my character, certainly within the context of the film, didn’t have any great qualms about it – everyone was doing it and we were doing it as well. That was the norm. It’s ironic to think that (Lance) Armstrong was about to enjoy his great stretch as being the world-leading cyclist and he won so many tours in a row and this was prior to that. During Armstrong’s time, everyone thought the sport had got its act together a bit more.”

Earlier, Kit Harington was seen playing a shady role in Criminals Season 2. What do you think about the movie? Tell us in the comments below!
