Nathalie Emmanuel defends the show's finale and slams the petition signed by fans

Game of Thrones continues to receive the support from its cast members amidst the relentless criticism of the show’s final season. From Emilia Clarke to Gemma Whelan everyone has expressed their displeasure at fans’ reactions towards the show. Now, we have a new addition to the list. Read on to find out more!

As per TV Line, Nathalie Emmanuel a.k.a. Missandei on the show has now backed the show’s ending and also defended the fate of her character on the show. Speaking about her character she said:

“I was very grateful for the strength that she had when she left. That was a performance choice for me,” she added “I was like, ‘She’s not going to be crying. She’s not going to be stereotypically scared. She’s scared, but she owns it.”

Emmanuel praised the strength of her character and said:

“This woman survived slavery. She knew that she might go to war and die. And she’s owning it like a badass bitch, And I felt like that’s what I did. I was very proud of it.”

Emmanuel, however, wasn’t exactly pleased with the way the show has been criticized from all quarters, especially by the fans. She was especially critical of the petition signed by the fans demanding the Season 8 to be made by competent writers. She said:

“Listen, I think it’s totally fine if you don’t like something. That’s perfectly acceptable. What I didn’t like was that people were signing a petition,” She explained, “You can’t ask for receipts on art. You just can’t. The art has been created for you, and you can either choose to like it or not.”

She went on to add that she was “blown away” by the show’s ending. According to her, the finale was “a hard plane to land. I don’t think people quite realize the undertaking and the amount of manpower it took to do that.”

Well, we feel the cast and crew members will continue to defend the show till eternity. It is, after all, a show that made their lives.

What do you guys reckon? Did you like Missandei’s character and ultimately her fate on the show? Let us know in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Michael McElhatton was scared to watch season 8 amidst bad reviews

Game of Thrones wrapped up filming nearly two years ago. The final season of the show met with a lot of controversies. Even though the show is dubbed the greatest TV show of the 21st century, many fans disliked the rushed ending. Some even petitioned to get it remade. HBO recently released a trailer for season 8 of the show, which doesn’t contain any previously unused footage but is new in the sense that it’s a re-edited version. However, actor Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton) was scared to watch the final season due to the backlash it received.

Roose Bolton died in season 6, but McElhatton continued to watch into season 7 because he was a fan of the show. He was reluctant to watch the final season as the bad reviews kept flowing in. He told the Express, “I always watched them a little bit later, I absolutely loved them, but I wasn’t kind of chomping at the bit to see (the final episodes). And then I guess – I will watch them one day, but it got such negative press, didn’t it? I mean, I just, I was really disappointed.”

He continued, “How can you be that big and that original and that new for eight seasons? Eventually, something’s got to give. And in a way, maybe it might have been better to finish at seven seasons. But I understand the pressure HBO probably put them under to say, ‘look, this thing is just a cash cow, it’s delivering and you’ve got to keep it going.’ Some series really do suffer from that, you know. They go on way too long and pass their story. But that’s where I guess art and commerce meet.”

“Acting is probably the last thing on my mind when I’m gardening”: says Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean

Hobbies are a great way of calming the mind while keeping one’s passion alive. Some of us slip into reading books or watching TV, while some others take more creative approaches like gardening. Game of Thrones star Sean Bean recently talked to the Financial Times about his childhood hobbies. He also talked about his love for gardening.

Sean said, “Acting is probably the last thing on my mind when I’m gardening: it’s nice to get away from all that. I think it helps my work in the end because it frees the mind from everyday stress, the nitty-gritty. And you realise that things are not quite as important as you think they are.”

“Acting is probably the last thing on my mind when I’m gardening”: says Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean

“I find I just focus on the moment. It’s a kind of mindful process: you know where you are, you know you’re in the present. But at the same time, your mind is wandering and visualising and imaging colours and structures and shapes. It’s precise, in the sense that you know exactly what you’re doing, but other ideas are also formulating – you’re planning for the future without really recognising that. It’s an interesting state of mind.”

Sean Bean recently talked about the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel play at Broadway. What do you think about gardening as a hobby? Talk to us in the comments below!

Sean Bean was worried about getting killed off again in Snowpiercer

Many of us cherish the memories of our childhood. Those were the times when we could be carefree and play without any real-life worries. As we grew up, the times we left behind became a sweet world of fantasy. Game of Thrones star Sean Bean attempted to relive those moments in an interview with The Financial Times.

He said, “As a kid, I was interested in nature. When I grew up in Sheffield in the ’60s and ’70s it was a big industrial city. It also had a lot of trees, countryside and wildlife – there are huge pockets of woodland and fields. We couldn’t wait to get out, especially in the long summer holiday, and go and make dens. We loved farms, derelict farms – there was a fascination in that. Or just an old scrapheap with cars on it that we’d climb in and out of. It was lethal. There were still bomb craters, big, deep things from the second world war. Everybody used to meet there for a fight and stuff after school.”

Sean continued, “Anyway, I couldn’t wait to get out to play and kick around a football, and we’d only come in when it started getting dark. I also got into birdwatching, so I used to go with my mates to Flamborough Head, Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park, places like that. My granddad did a lot of vegetable and fruit gardening. And there was my next-door neighbour, a guy called Ron Howard, who was our neighbour for about 40 or 50 years. I learnt a lot from both of them. I gradually grew into gardening as well.”

Several Game of Thrones stars recently shared their memories of the show on account of the Iron anniversary. Share with us some of your memories in the comments below!
