Tommen's beloved cat 'Ser Pounce' from Game of Thrones is still alive and well

Game of Thrones ended back in May 2019, leaving some fans contended while most were not satisfied with the much-expected bittersweet ending. We once loved many characters and hated others – that perception of ours was changed manifold after watching Daenerys Targaryen torching the entire King’s Landing. However, some characters in the series went missing too in the series over the years especially Tommen Baratheon’s beloved cat ‘Ser Pounce’.

Ahead of the final season’s airing, we updated you with the fact that the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had revealed to Entertainment Weekly about the cat’s fate in the series. According to them, it was executed by Cersei Lannister. They had told EW,

“Cersei hated the name ‘Ser Pounce’ so much she could not allow him to survive…So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]. Ser Pounce’s death was so horrible we couldn’t even put it on the air.”

However, disturbing this news was once to all cat lovers and Cersei-haters, it has now been revealed that the cat who played Ser Pounce in the show is alive and well.

The adorable cat in the series was played by a Maine coon cat named Womble. This was revealed to the Huffington Post by Jo Vaughan, animal training specialists Birds and Animals U.K. He told them,

“He is owned by us still and is retired with one of our trainers.”

Vaughan has also trained the Inuit dogs that played the direwolves in the first season of Game of Thrones along with Ramsey Bolton’s hounds in the fifth and sixth season. He told HuffPost,

“They are all pet animals and many are now enjoying their days of retirement!”

Additionally, he also revealed that Womble also was one of the cats who portrayed the character of Mrs Norris in the Harry Potter franchise.

Sophie Turner wears daughter Willa's Birthdate on a new necklace

Even though the year 2020 has been a Long Night for humanity, a few good news did light up the dark skies. For example, all the Game of Thrones babies we had (and are expecting) this year! Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) welcomed daughter Willa with husband Joe Jonas this summer.

The 24-year-old actress is quite busy these days taking care of her new-born baby. Jonas and Turner have kept many of the details about life with their new baby under wraps. They do go out occasionally on strolls with a baby cart. Yesterday, in a new photo on her Instagram story, Turner shared a photo of her necklace that reads, ‘22.07.20’ vertically. “Thank you, @jenniferfisherjewelry,” she wrote.

The date is very significant for the new parents as it is the birth-date of baby Willa. This means that next Sunday, Willa will turn four months old. Unfortunately for her, she hasn’t been on the usual friends-and-family tour that infants typically do during their first year. Even Game of Thrones alum and Sophie’s BFF Maisie Williams hasn’t gotten to meet her. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible.

Parents express their love for their kids in their own ways. What do you think of Sophie’s gesture? Talk to us in the comments below!
