Interview

Iain Glen reveals why no one will ever know what Daenerys whispered to Jorah during the funeral scene

Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks”, began with the living laying the dead to rest one final time. We saw respects being paid to some of our favourite characters – Ser Jorah Mormont, Lady Lyanna Mormont, Edd, Beric Dondarrion.

Iain Glen, the actor who plays the character of Ser Jorah was cast in the pilot episode and stayed on till the last season. During these seasons he went through a lot – betraying Dany, saving her, helping her, fighting Greyscale, and surviving capture by the slavers. He breathed his last fighting for his queen, someone he loved with all his heart and soul.

Among all the other deaths, the moment of Jorah’s death was probably the most heart-wrenching because of the sort of mourning he received from Daenerys. As a character, Dany has been stoic and mostly unmoving even during major deaths of people in her life. This could be because her sole goal has been the Iron Throne. But with Ser Jorah she lost her confidante, her most trusted friend, someone who stayed with her since her very first day with the Dothrakis. Which is probably why we saw her bowing down close to him and whispering something before finally lighting the pyre.

EW spoke to Iain about this scene and he had some interesting things to say. In this scene neither actor wore microphones. In this scene, as per the makers, ““Daenerys whispers something to him that he’ll never hear and we’ll never know…”. So, Emilia Clarke who plays Dany was left to write something intimate and warm that only she would know and Jorah would never hear. But Iain Glen did.

Since the viewers are to never know whatever it was, Iain obviously did not tell EW the exact words. But when asked “Did Clarke say something sincere? Was it in character? Was it funny?”, Glen said, “It’s something entirely sincere and true to the moment and something that I’ll never forget”. He also added, “I’ll always cherish it because it’s something no one will ever know but the two of us. And that’s a memory to hold onto.

Now that is certainly something to hold on to, isn’t it?

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!
