Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Bolton) recites a scary maritime story

Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Bolton) reads a scary maritime story

Game of Thrones gave some of the finest actors to the industry. It was a show that ran for a decade and had many memorable characters. Some of those characters turned out to be the most iconic villains of all time. And amongst those villains perhaps the character of Ramsey Bolton will forever remain the most gruesome one. Iwan Rheon who played the character of Bolton is once again back in the news. Read on!

As per Metro, Rheon has recently got associated with Krakenory, a series where some of the best on-screen baddies will read terrifying sea-faring tales in order to entertain the audience. As a part of that series, Rheon recently read a passage from the story of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Check out the video!

The actor told the Metro that he is not really bothered about playing any characters. He just wants the character to be written well.

“I guess I’m not really that bothered [whether I play a good guy or a villain]. I just sort of look for characters that I think are interesting, and obviously, if the writing is good, then it’s going to be fun.”

He understands that people now see him in certain characters and he doesn’t mind it.

“And you know, and I don’t know, I just seem to have got a couple of villains, so I guess people sort of see me like that. But until I played Ramsay I never considered myself as that kind of actor but then obviously everything changed. I like to play a variety of kinds of characters, but they have to be interesting, really.”

Rheon to his credit has tried to break the mould by signing for a completely different kind of role in American Gods. However, like many other iconic villains in the past, it is going to take something significant for Rheon to break away from the stereotype.

HBO releases House of the Dragon teaser trailer

HBO releases House of the Dragon teaser trailer

We finally have the first footage from the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon. The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen.

“Gods. Kings. Fire and Blood. Dreams didn’t make us kings … Dragons did.” *GOOSEBUMPS*

 

One of the best parts of the trailer was the scene that featured the Great Hall in the Red Keep. In the Game of Thrones prequel, we will get to see a new Iron Throne, one that is kind of close to what George R.R. Martin imagined it to look like when he wrote the books. Here’s the most accurate depiction of the Iron Throne according to George R.R. Martin. Also, looking at the scene, it does feel that the Iron Throne is made of the thousand blades of Aegon’s fallen enemies.

We get to see the Iron Throne in another scene from the teaser trailer but we had to zoom in to get a proper look at the Iron Throne.

In Game of Thrones TV series, the Iron Throne didn’t actually have 1000 swords and during the famous “Chaos is a ladder” scene Littlefinger tells Lord Varys that there aren’t even 200 swords in the Iron Throne.

The day before yesterday we had reported that we could expect the House of the Dragon teaser trailer to arrive in 2 weeks and that the full trailer will be released 1 week before Christmas.

Here’s the new description for House of the Dragon that was updated a few days ago:

“Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.”

Charles Dance kidnaps Dream in Netflix’s Sandman Teaser Trailer

Charles Dance kidnaps Dream in Netflix’s Sandman Teaser Trailer

There were several memorable villainous characters in Game of Thrones, but few were as influential and admirable as Charles Dance’s Tywin Lannister. His mere presence on the screen dictated seriousness, and the audience knew he meant business. Dance will be once again seen in a villainous role, in Netflix’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s DC comic Sandman. And he looks quite menacing in the trailer itself, have a look:

In the teaser trailer released recently by Netflix, Dance cunningly lures and kidnaps Morpheus, the cosmic being who is an embodiment of all the dreams in the universe. Dance plays Roderick Burgess who is a charlatan, blackmailer and magician, and the show’s protagonist Dream is portrayed by Tom Sturridge.

Dance’s Game of Thrones co-star is also playing an important role in the series. Gwendoline Christie will play a female version of Lucifer, Queen of Hell.

Netflix’s official synopsis for The Sandman reads: “A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven, ‘The Sandman’ follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”
