Game of Thrones stars talk about that intense Sansa and Littlefinger look in the season 6 finale

The Game of Thrones season 6 finale had a lot of epic moments, and some of them overshadowed the more important details that we didn’t pay much mind to. Looking back, during the scene in which Jon is declared as King in the North, we see Sansa share an intense and meaningful look with Petyr Baelish, and how much ever we try to avoid it, there was something in that scene that struck our senses. Sansa’s previous conversation with Littlefinger in the Godswood told us that she didn’t trust him anymore, and wasn’t silly enough to let him get into his head, but brilliant as Littlefinger is, he managed to create a conflict in Sansa’s mind. She was obviously bothered about the fact that she was given next to no credit for having saved Jon and his army during the battle in the north, by bringing in the Knights of the Vale, and if not for her, Jon would hardly be standing there alive.

Fans have speculated what Sansa was thinking during that scene, and to make it a little clearer, Sophie Turner and Aiden Gillen, who play Sansa and Littlefinger on the show respectively, talked about the particular moment when Sansa looked at him.

Sophie Turner, when asked by The Hollywood Reporter about what Sansa was feeling after her conversation with Littlefinger in the Godswood when she rejected him, said, “As you say, she rejects him in the beginning, but there’s definitely something in her that’s … it’s kind of a jealousy toward Jon. He’s getting all of the credit for basically Sansa saving his ass. Obviously he played a huge part in the Battle of the Bastards, but Sansa really saved him. There’s a bit of jealousy there. She looks at Littlefinger knowing that he would have put her as Queen in the North, and given her the credit she deserves. I don’t think she’s gunning for the Iron Throne anytime soon, but she realizes that Littlefinger might be a better ally than she thought, a more trustworthy ally than she thought. […] I think she’ll forever be wary of Littlefinger. But I think she realizes now that he’s more loyal to her than she initially thought. He’s tried to prove that. If he truly is loyal to her, then he’s a wonderful, wonderful ally to have. But she’ll forever be skeptical and wary of his motives. She’s not stupid enough to follow him blindly.”

During an interview with Vulture, Aiden Gillen was asked about that look Sansa and Littlefinger exchange, and he said, “We only had a few scenes with Littlefinger in season six. But one thing he was trying to do consistently was sow some kind of seed of disquiet with Sansa in terms of Jon, and how closely related they really are, and how valid he really is as a king, or a leader, or a brother, while at the same time encouraging what might be her own position. There’s a certain amount of, ‘I told you so. Is this what you want? Can you trust him?’ And all of that has been said anyway, in the previous scene. But there’s also a degree of excitement, because the lords are pledging their allegiance to Jon Snow, and we didn’t necessarily know it would go that way.”

The scene was certainly ambiguous and we can’t be sure of what it meant until the next season, but it surely left people with something to think about. Do you think Sansa would trust Littlefinger again? Tell us in the comments.

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
