Indira Varma performed on stage with Emilia Clarke days before she tested positive for Coronavirus

The Coronavirus has been spreading rapidly around the world and at the time of writing this article, there are an estimated 435,383  confirmed cases and that include some big names like Prince Charles, Idris Elba, Kevin Durant, and more. Even Game Of Thrones cast members were affected as Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) and Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand) tested positive for the virus last week. So far we haven’t received updates from both of them and we hope that they recover soon.

Indira Varma had shared the news by sharing a post on her Instagram account on 18th March and she asked everyone to take care and stay safe, while also being sad about her play, The Seagull being suspended due to Coronavirus.

So sad our and so many other shows around the world have gone dark affected by the COVID-19 pandemic”. However, she was hopeful that the shows would return and further asked for everyone’s support. “We hope to be back soon and urge you all (and the govt) to support us when we do.

In the post, she shared photos of her co-stars and that included Emilia Clarke as well and it turns out that on 12th of March, there was a preview of The Seagull and Emilia Clarke and rest of the cast performed with Indira Varma. That’s just 6 days days before Indira announced that she tested positive. Now we don’t know when she contracted the virus and I hope that Emilia and rest of the cast members are safe.

Here’s a photo that was shared on 12th March by Twitter user The Seagull (Unofficial).

In this photo shared by a user named Amy (who also clicked the image that we have displayed at the start of the article), we can see Clarke standing next to Varma.

So far there is no news about Emilia Clarke or other cast members testing positive for Coronavirus and I hope that it stays the same. Emilia hasn’t been active on Instagram and her last post was shared in February, where she shared some photos from the rehearsal of the play.

 

Here are some of the tweets by people who attended the play on 12th March.

New £24m Game of Thrones attraction to open in Northern Ireland featuring sets from King’s Landing and Winterfell

Winterfell set

A new chance for Game of Thrones’ fans to relive their fantasies is about to open in Northern Ireland. A £24m Game of Thrones attraction center in Co Down is being set up by Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge. It will be developed under license with Warner Brothers Consumer Products.

The tour will be another stop for fans of the fantasy TV series who, pre-COVID, loved to visit spots like Ballintoy Harbour, Castle Ward, and the Dark Hedges to follow in the footsteps of characters. The tourist attraction will feature sets from King’s Landing and Winterfell.

GoT sets

The Linen Mill Studios have now received planning permission. The tour is expected to pull in 600,000 visitors and generate £400m in revenue per year. It will help in the recovery of the tourism industry post-COVID-19, as tourism is estimated to have lost 50% of its 2019 £1bn revenues.

The show was filmed here between 2009 and 2018 by HBO. It was adapted from George R.R. Martin’s famous novel A Song of Ice and Fire. Linen Mill Studios want the venue to embody the entertainment, drama, and quality which made Game of Thrones the most pirated TV show in history.

Some of the most iconic scenes of the show were shot at the studio. The fans will have an opportunity to visit and see the work of the show’s incredible crew in a museum setting. Apart from the set, the tour will also feature a make-up and prosthetics shop for the guests. There will also be a restaurant to relive the studio catering experience.

Are you excited about the brand new opening of the tour stop? Let us know in the comments below!

Diana Rigg, who played Lady Olenna Tyrell on Game of Thrones, passes away at 82

Olenna Tyrell

The year 2020 has been the Red Wedding of years. As if the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t enough, tragedy has struck yet once again. This time, the wretched year has taken away another gem of the entertainment industry. Diana Rigg, who played the cunning Lady Olenna Tyrell on the series Game of Thrones, has passed away at the age of 82.

Diana was a decorated and esteemed performer. She was a venerable figure in Britain’s entertainment industry and was the recipient of the famed Tony and Emmy awards. Rigg was also famous for her role as intelligence agent Emma Peel on ‘The Avengers’ in the 1960s.

Diana Rigg played the role of Lady Olenna Tyrell, also known as The Queen of Thorns on HBO’s The Game of Thrones. She began in the third season in 2013. She was nominated for the esteemed Emmy awards for the category ‘Best Guest Actor’ for her work on the show, consecutively from 2013 to 2015.

Diana was a beautiful kind and generous human being that enhanced the lives of all that knew her as well as a great actress. She leaves a great void in my heart,” said Lionel Larner, who was Rigg’s long time friend and talent agent.

Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg was born in Doncaster, Yorkshire, England. She spent her early childhood in India. Diana did her training as an actress at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art from 1955-57 and made her professional stage debut in Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle in 1957. She died from cancer which was diagnosed back in March.

Her loss will be deeply felt and she will be missed all over the world. Our condolences are with her family and friends.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss working on adapting “Three-Body Problem” at Netflix

Benioff and Weiss

Game of Thrones was a memorable experience for both the fans and the show’s crew. Rarely do we see a TV show achieve massive popularity as Game of Thrones did in the last decade. Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Game of Thrones directors David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with Alexander Woo are working together to adapt Liu Cixin’s bestseller “Three-Body Problem” for Netflix. The series will be covering all three books of the trilogy, namely, “The Three-Body Problem,” “The Dark Forest,” and “Death’s End.” The story revolves around the idea of humanity’s first contact with aliens. Netflix struck a deal with Yoozoo group for the rights to make an English adaptation of the trilogy.

Benioff and Weiss were highly impressed by the books. They said, “Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe. We look forward to spending the next years of our lives bringing this to life for audiences around the world.

The Three-Body Problem is going to be the first project Benioff and Weiss will work on, since the completion of Game of Thrones. They have already proved their mettle with the amazing success of Game of Thrones. The new show is the type of fantasy genre that is right up their sleeves. Benioff and Weiss are also associated with another Netflix series, “The Chair” as executive producers.

The Netflix series does not have a release date yet. What are your expectations for the show? Let us know in the comments below.
