Barack Obama tries to name every character who's died on Game of Thrones so far

Barack Obama is a fan of Game of Thrones and in the past he has talked about the characters from the show and he had also revealed the character he most identifies with on the show and the character is “the dwarf, what’s his name?” It turns out that even though Obama is a fan of the show, he has a tough time remembering the names of the characters. Few months back he let everyone know that Tyrion Lannister was his favourite character and when he met one of the directors of the show, David Nutter, the first question that he asked was, “You didn’t kill Jon Snow, did you?

It’s good to know that Obama is a fan of Game of Thrones and being the president of USA, he sure enjoys some benefits as Obama received the episodes of Game of Thrones season 6 before the season aired. Obama continued to display his liking for the show when he sat down with BuzzFeed to encourage the youth to vote. In the typical BuzzFeed style, the video was titled, “5 Things That Are Harder Than Registering To Vote.”

The list included playing the game Operation, untangling iPhone headphones, making a friendship bracelet for the Vice President,  stacking Cheerios and *drumrolls please* naming the characters who have died on Game of Thrones so far. Obama had around one and half minute to name as many characters as he could and this is how he fared.

Ned, Rob, Khal Drogo, Jon, but maybe that doesn’t really count. Renley, Summer, Shaggydog, and then Hodor. That was… sad.

Well this list is pretty short considering the actual number of characters who have died in Game of Thrones so far but it was still impressive. Take a look at the video below.

Henry Cavill calls Kristofer Hivju ‘brave’ for showing his ‘true’ appearance in The Witcher season 2 teaser

Henry Cavill calls Kristofer Hivju ‘brave' for showing his ‘true' appearance in The Witcher season 2 teaser

Game of Thrones has a long list of memorable characters, and since we know how infamous George R. R. Martin is for killing off fan favourites, some lucky ones did manage to get away with their lives at the end of the series. One of them was Jon Snow’s wildling buddy Tormund Giantsbane, played by Kristofer Hivju. It seems like Hivju’s new adventures into the wild have drastically altered his appearance, at least that’s what Henry Cavill says.

Netflix recently released The Witcher season 2 trailer, and we get a brief look at Hivju, who will play Nivellen in the show. It’s all prosthetics and CGI magic but Henry Cavill insists that this is Hivju’s true appearance.

The amazing, the wonderful, the electric and the enigmatic Kristofer Hivju. Kristofer was extraordinarily brave for season 2 of The Witcher and decided to play his character of Nivellen with zero make-up or visual effects, as you can see above. Kristofer, we are all so proud,” Cavill wrote.

Nivellen is an important character in The Witcher lore as he appears in Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth, He is the first “monster” Geralt of Rivia encounters who isn’t really a monster. Interestingly, the character is based on the Beast in, you guessed it, Beauty and the Beast.

The Witcher Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on December 17, 2021.

Kit Harington presumed Game of Thrones was going to end after Season 6

Kit Harington presumed Game of Thrones was going to end after Season 6

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington rose to fame with his role Jon Snow, and has become a household name ever since. Though Jon Snow was admired for his bravery and heroism on the show, he was often ridiculed and later became a meme template for the internet for not knowing a lot of things. And it seems like Harington has absorbed that part of his character a bit too much.

Kit Harington presumed Game of Thrones was going to end after Season 6

In a recent interview with Total Film, Kit Harington talked about his character, Dane Whitman, from Marvel’s Eternals. And eventually the discussion turned to Game of Thrones. He said:

I’ve got no idea whether my character goes on or not. I had read up on who he could be, or might be. So there’s the possibility for a longer trajectory. And hopefully, I think this is the tip of the iceberg for my character. I hope. But I just don’t know, you know? I’m as in the dark as anyone else. And I try not to live too far ahead in the future with anything. Even when I was in Game of Thrones, even on the sixth season, I presumed the seventh season wasn’t going to happen!”

Whether it is defending the earth from cosmic entities, or holding the ground for Castle Black, Harington seems to be clueless (or acting coy) about a lot of stuff. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Robin Arryn is all grown up now, and fans are going crazy over his ‘Sex Education’ role!

Game of Thrones’ Robin Arryn is all grown up now, and fans are going crazy over his ‘Sex Education’ role!

Game of Thrones had several characters who started off as little kids and later blossomed into the bold personas we know and love so much. The child actors who were part of the show also grew up with it as the seasons progressed, and many of them have successful careers now. British-Brazilian actor Lino Facioli became famous after his role ‘Robin Arryn‘ in Game of Thrones. But recently, he’s in the limelight for his new character in the Netflix series ‘Sex Education’, and fans don’t seem to get enough of him.

Now much older, Facioli is on our screens again, this time as Moordale High student Dex Thompson – a nerdy teen who competes in the high school quiz team alongside Maeve Wiley.

He’s also whipped his kit off in the latest season, and a lot of viewers are finding it difficult to process that it’s the same person who played little Robin Arryn in Game of Thrones. Here’s what they have to say:
