Natalie Dormer says she got the perfect length of time in Game of Thrones

Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones is on a roll these days. After getting the rave reviews for her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels she is riding high on success. After the premiere of her new show, she got some time to reflect on her journey so far and we are excited to bring those reflections to you. Read on to find out more!

Dormer recently spoke to Variety and talked candidly about her journey in Game of Thrones. In many ways, Game of Thrones was the gamechanger for Dormer and she was aware of it. She was in the series for five seasons and showcased her talent. Speaking about her infamous death she said:

“I was ever so grateful that I was with Jonathan [Pryce who played the High Sparrow]. To have such a partner for my last scene was really a gift.”

She was also very understanding of the kind of challenge the showrunners had on their hands. She said:

“But I think Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] had an almost impossible task in wrapping up the show. And by the very nature of the sheer quantity of storylines and characters, they had to start wrapping up around Season 6, which they did with the Tyrells and other beloved characters. It was almost going to be the impossible task, I think, regardless of what they had done, to satisfy the third act for everyone in the time that they had.”

She also reflected fondly on her journey and had no complaints at all from the makers. She believed that she was in the show for the perfect duration and it was her golden ticket.

“I got the golden ticket, the perfect length of time. I watched Season 1 as a fan, came in the second season, did a good solid five years just as the show had this incredible explosion, and then I got out in time to watch the end and sit on the couch again.” 

Well, Dormer didn’t let her guard down at all after the success of Thrones. Recently she took her fans through behind the scenes video of Penny Dreadful and it was amazing to see the effort.

Well, if you have watched the show, let us know your reviews in the comments below!

Emilia Clarke understands why fans were p***ed over Daenerys’ fate in Season 8 finale

It has been 2 years, and it is still the hot topic of several online debates amongst fan communities across the internet. The controversial final season of Game of Thrones. Some of the fans were so disappointed that they petitioned for a rewrite of the final season. Some actors, like Charles Dance, even agreed to sign it. Even the mother of dragons understands and agrees with the viewers. Actress Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the show, was especially sad about the downfall of her character.

Clarke told Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, “I get it. I get why people were p***ed. I totally get it. But me being the actor, you can’t do justice to the character that you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into for a decade without getting on the same page. Do you know what I mean? So like, I’m not going to be there being like, “Fine, I’ll do the scene, whatever. So p***ed.”

Emilia explained that as an actor, regardless of where the story leads, ‘you have to turn up’.

“You have to turn up and you have to… because why? Because you’re doing it for you and you’re doing it for her and you’re doing it for the show and you’re doing it for the storytelling. So, I’m an actor. I get given a story and I need to tell that story,” she said.

Emilia is currently writing her own comics, and hopefully, she’ll give an ending to this character she had hoped for Dany. Do you agree with Emilia? Talk to us in the comments below!

Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa gets candid about Justice League Snyder Cut

Jason Momoa’s movie the Aquaman was a huge success for the DCEU (DC Extended Universe). The movie made huge profits and was applauded by fans all over the world. Aquaman was earlier regarded as a lame, fish-talking hero with little to no use. The character was made fun of by many comic book fans across the world. However, with the introduction of Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa as the titular hero, everything changed. Aquaman is now one of the coolest heroes in the DC roster, thanks to Momoa.

Momoa has always been an ardent supporter of Zack Snyder and his vision for the DCEU. He talked to Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show about how happy he was when Snyder’s dream came to life. He said:

I love Zack, and that’s kinda what I signed up for eight years ago, is to have his vision. The cool thing about that four-hour piece is that I didn’t reshoot anything. That was all there. It’s so interesting when people come up to me and they’re like ‘Oh, I really love this, and it’s so detailed, and it explains so much,’ and I’m like ‘Yeah, that’s what we went and shot, I didn’t have to redo anything.”

He continued, “So because of the tragedy, I’m happy we made one, but I’m really happy that we got to release his art, and a lot of fans are happy. The truth of it is I like the four hours, it’s just a four-part series. So I like the extended and spending time with the characters.”

Momoa also lost a friendly match of Water War against the host recently. What do you think of the Snyder Cut? Tell us in the comments below!

You’re up for so many things, and coming from those auditions, and testing on other shows, I had more experience, more experience with the process. And maybe I was more confident. And I don’t know, something about this one just felt right. This part felt different. I knew this character. And felt a connection with him. I knew where he had come from.”
