Game of Thrones actor Richard E. Grant will appear in Marvel's Disney+ series Loki

Game of Thrones cast grew to be so huge over the eight seasons, that one has to really wreck their brains sometimes to remember when a particular character came on to the big stage of the drama. Many acclaimed actors graced the screen for small parts in the thread of ice and fire, yet left impact nonetheless. When these stars make a move anywhere in the world, our eyes follow. Richard E. Grant, a giant of an actor, who appeared on GoT as a part of the traveling drama company in Braavos in season 6 has made a move. Richard will appear in Loki, one of the upcoming limited series by Marvel to premiere on Disney+.

Discussing Film has reported that Richard E. Grant has joined the cast of Loki. But Richard’s role in the series is not yet known. The British actor has been in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) before as Dr. Zander Rice in ‘Logan’. As for the Disney+ Loki series, however, he might only appear in a single episode, the sources close to Variety reported.

His presence has been vast though with recent roles in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, and ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ for which he got a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars 2019. He has also starred in TV shows like Doctor Who, The Fear, The Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and more. He is currently starring in Jason Segal’s anthology series Dispatches From Elsewhere.

In Game of Thrones, he played a character called Izembaro. We saw him in the sixth season during Arya Stark’s training with the Faceless Men. While Arya watched a play called ‘The Bloody Hand’ based on The War of the Five Kings, Izembaro was on stage. He was playing Robert Baratheon first, and then Tywin Lannister. He was the writer and director of the play as well. So, it was a brief cameo-of-sorts for Grant.

The Disney+ series will see Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as the ever-playful, God of mischief, Loki. Although his death in Avengers: Infinity War could make it quite difficult to be alive, fantasy and Endgame have its perks. The last film in the first phase of MCU gave Loki a chance to survive, while being dead, in an alternate universe where he went after stealing the space stone. So, now in the series, Loki will pop out at different points in time and influence historical events. Loki, as a central character of a show, is intriguing for sure!

Michael Waldron, who wrote for Rick & Morty will serve as writer, executive producer and show-runner for the Loki series; while Kate Herron (who directed a few episodes in the series Sex Education) will direct all six episodes of the series and be an executive producer too. The cast includes Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, and Cailey Fleming. Loki is slated to release in early 2021 on the streaming service, Disney+.

The phase two of MCU will have many new developments. There’s a line-up of Marvel miniseries on Disney+ including Loki, Wandavision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier that will play a big role in this new setup.

We hope for Richard E. Grant to play a short-but-memorable part in this universe. What are your thoughts? Tell us in the comments.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his belt buckle while carrying his sword behind him.

Another image shows him in what looks like a melancholy state, kneeling in the sea with his shoulders hunched and his head bowed down as his sword stands upright in the sand.

The last of the photos show him lying on the sand, while Dark Sister is still stuck in the sand while Matt talks to a crew member.

This might be a soul-searching moment for Daemon Targaryen, since no other cast members are seen around him as he takes a stroll along the beach.

Theo Nate to play Laenor Velaryon in Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Fans have been wondering for a while about some of the key characters that have not been announced yet. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, depicting a scene being filmed involving a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon.

We already know actress Milly Alcock is playing the younger version of Rhaenyra, as it was announced officially a while ago. However, this is the first time anyone has ever seen Laenor Velaryon in action, played by actor Theo Nate. Nate is a budding actor whose acting credits include Time (2021), a show starring Sean Bean.

Rhaenyra and Laenor were married at a young age, so the leaked pictures that have been circulating on the internet must be from around that time. Also, Laenor dies young in the books, after the couple have their children. So maybe Rhaenyra is seeing him off for the last time at the beach?

Holiday park says ‘House of The Dragon’ filming is driving guests away

More leaks from the set of House of The Dragon hint at a major battle scene being filmed at Cornwall

It has recently been confirmed that the production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has returned to Cornwall. Several photos of the shoot were leaked recently, which included what looked like a huge huge battle sequence as well as the first look at Rhaenys Velaryon, Laenor Velaryon and a young Rhaenyra Targaryen. Fans of the fantasy epic might be psyched, but the neighbours to the show’s production site not so much.

A holiday park in Cornwall has complained that nearby filming for the Game Of Thrones spin-off House Of The Dragon has driven away their guests. The owners of The Meadow Holiday Park, who are neighbours to the show’s production site, have now said that they have lost business on account of the noise from production, which took place between 5 am and 10 pm.

Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed,” owner Krys Humphrey explained to Cornwall Live. “The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.”

She continued, “They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes. We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.”

Humphrey added that the House of The Dragon production team has offered to distribute gift baskets to those impacted by the noise, but that this will not suffice. “We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks,” she said, “I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.”
