Sophie Turner reveals the Game of Thrones connection with her upcoming series

Game of Thrones made many of its actors’ household names. Some of those actors literally grew up with the show. By the end of the series, two girls from House of Stark, Maisie Williams a.k.a. Arya Stark and Sophie Turner a.k.a. Sansa Stark grew up to be immensely popular stars. Now as we see likes of Turner branch out to different projects it’s natural that they become nostalgic and remember the show that made them so popular. Read on!

Turner is going to be soon seen in an upcoming Quibi series Survive. The trailer for Survive was released a week ago and it was received very well by the fans around the world. Turner recently spoke with Conan O’Brien and talked about her upcoming project. She talked candidly about everything but perhaps the most interesting revelation was the wolves connection with her former show!

Now, we all know that wolves were an important part of Thrones. In fact, when Jon Snow was not shown petting his wolf in the final season all hell broke loose! After exactly a year later, in Survive, Turner has now got yet another chance to be with wolves but there is a twist. In the interview, Turner revealed that it was the same team that had worked on wolves in Thrones.

“Actually, yeah. We were working with the people who provided the wolves for Game of Thrones… so it was actually quite horrible because, you know, in Game of Thrones, the wolves are our pets — are like our soulmates, kind of. And on this, I have to basically, like, fight a wolf and try to kill the thing. And so I found it to be quite symbolic, actually. You know? Like, Game of Thrones had just ended. So I was, you know, figuratively killing the wolf and ending my career.”

Life really does some strange things, doesn’t it? Speaking of which, Turner has been really vocal recently about the social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak. She had, in fact, blasted the fellow actress Evangeline Lilly, who had said that she will continue to do business as usual and that she won’t self-quarantine.

Turner had then taken to her Instagram and urged people to stay inside.

“Here’s the tea. Stay inside. Don’t be fucking stupid! Even if you count your ‘freedom’ over…I don’t know, what is it…like your health! I don’t give a ffffff… about your freedom. You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you by doing this. So, stay inside guys. It’s not cool, and it’s not big, and it’s not clever. And that’s the tea!”

Well, good folks, stay inside and listen to her!

Survive will be releasing on April 6 only on Quibi App. Don’t forget to tune in!

Natalie Dormer talks about her journey from a bullied student to a confident actress

Life throws many challenges at us. Sometimes they can be too much to bear at one time but it is those challenges that make us who we become later in life. Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones too has had a life full of challenges and she recently talked about in an interview. Read on to find out more!

Buoyed by her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels where she plays a demon, Dormer recently spoke to The Mirror. She reflected on her journey all the way from her school life where she was bullied to becoming a confident actress. She also spoke about why she craves for strong roles and their impact on her.

“I’m fascinated by powerful women who transform their strength into sensuality. I’m very shy in real life and I think there’s a side of me that hopes that by taking on these roles, I can become a great seductress. But I also want to be part of stories that show how women can lead interesting, engaging lives apart from their romantic relationships.”

She made it a point to not back down ever since she was bullied in the school. She said:

“I suffered a lot of bullying in school and, ever since, I’ve made it a point not to back down and to rise up to every situation and become a stronger person. That’s a key aspect of my personality and how I try to live. I needed to work on my confidence level in my 20s until I became more forceful.”

She also made a parallel between the world of 1930’s Los Angeles shown in her latest series to the current world.

“There’s been an incredible political polarization that has been going on in recent years – the demonization of the other, the resurgence of nationalism, pointing the finger at others, and this nasty brand of identity politics. There are very uncomfortable parallels between the state of things today and the kind of things happening in the mid-to-late 1930s and the lead-up to the Second World War.”

She also revealed that she almost made it to the Cambridge university but enrolled herself into a drama school instead. She was also pretty close to her grandfather who in some ways defined her future by supporting her creative juices.

From being bullied to being part of an epic saga like Game of Thrones and Hunger Games, Dormer has truly come a long way. We truly admire her for that.

Actor Josh Whitehouse talks about his canceled Game of Thrones prequel

Josh Whitehouse talks about the cancelled Game of Thrones prequel

They say it’s for the best if certain things don’t work out. But if you ask us, Game of Thrones prequel not happening was just too sad. The prequel, unofficially called The Long Night was going to showcase the history of Westeros dating back 1000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and it was going to be such a fascinating watch but when the cancellation was announced, let’s be honest — it sucked. Turns out we are not the only one thinking of it. Josh Whitehouse, one of the stars of the doomed prequel has recently talked about the show and what it meant for him. Read on!

While we know that the likes of Naomi Watts had already shot the pilot for the show, we still don’t know the exact reason why the show didn’t take off. Whitehouse was also going to be a part of the show and while he wasn’t going to feature until the second episode, he was still very excited about it. He caught up with TooFab and said that he had not shot for the pilot but was very proud to have got the auditions right.

“It was mind-blowing, just such an honor to even be considered for something like that. I got the audition, I got the job and then I spent a year and a half waiting for it to actually happen, pre-prod stuff.”

 

After waiting for so long he was obviously disappointed but he still looked at the bright side.

“Then it ended up getting canceled and I was like, ‘Oh, alright,'” he continued, “I was just honored to be involved, even to be able to say that is a huge thing for my career, it was such a big show.”

He also thought that because the show got canceled he didn’t have to deal with the pressure of being part of the Game of Thrones world. He said:

“In a sense, like, Game of Thrones was such a huge thing already, it’s kind of nice to not have that pressure, the potential to not live up to expectations and bring something new to the world,” he added. “But either way I would have been happy.”

Well, maybe things do happen for the best. While we would have really liked to see the Bloodmoon world, we have other prequels to look forward to!

Lena Headey says she would love to play Deadpool

Our universe badly needs a superhero right now. With the Coronavirus spreading its wings we could have done with an actual superhero or two. However, as doctors around the world do their best as our actual saviors, let’s shift our focus briefly to our virtual superheroes. Speaking of, we can all agree that Deadpool is unarguably the most different of them all and as a result, it has piqued the interest of a certain Queen. Read on to find out more!

Its been a year since Game of Thrones ended its run and with that came the end of the reign of a decade for Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister. The manner in which it came to halt is still being discussed in the aisles of various forums, with Headey herself making her displeasure known to the world.

She had then said:

“I invested as a viewer and I have my favorite characters. And I’ve got a few of my own gripes. But I haven’t sat down drunkenly with David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] yet.” 

Before signing off with:

“I will say I wanted a better death.”

Well, be that as it may, Headey seems to have moved on and even has her eyes set on her dream role!

Speaking with HeroicHollywood recently, she said she loves the character of Deadpool and would love to play it. She also realizes that it has been taken but come on that shouldn’t stop her from dreaming. Universe has acted in stranger ways before. She said:

“Well, I’d love to play Deadpool. Obvs. Anyway, that’s been taken.”

While we absolutely love Ryan Reynolds’ version of Deadpool, that franchise can definitely accommodate Headey in some way or the other. Right?

Can you imagine Headey as Deadpool? Let us know in the comments below!
