Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn thanks key workers for their service during the coronavirus pandemic

All of us are aware that these are difficult times, such as we have never known in our lives. The coronavirus crisis is a threat to humanity, a bit similar to the danger of White Walkers in Game of Thrones. And much like the show, the people in power and in the community have tried to gather all available forces to ward off COVID-19. But our health workers have been frontline soldiers everywhere. It’s their duty, yes! But they’re playing their part with utmost sincerity to protect us from this illness while putting their own lives on the line. Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn (Bronn) has shared a video message to thank key workers of the Pembrokeshire county and across mid and west Wales, who are working each day to save the lives of fellow citizens.

Jerome’s message appeared on the Facebook page of the Hywel Dda Health Board. “Hello, I am Jerome Flynn. I am wanting to send you, all the key workers in Pembrokeshire and across mid and west Wales a short message,” began Jerome. He continued, “It’s hard to express the amount of gratitude myself and all of the community here in Pembrokeshire are feeling for the work you’re doing. It’s hard for us to fully connect with the experiences you are having each day. But we’re getting blasts of them, and I have friends who do work in that sector, so I’m getting some understanding of the sort of days you’re walking into.”

The actor drew a parallel to his own character in Game of Thrones for his current situation. Bronn worked his way up from being a cutthroat to one of the chief knights in Westeros. But owing to his cunning, selfish nature, he did not participate in the great war against the Night King and his army of the dead.

“I feel in a way a little bit like how my character in Game of Thrones felt; when everybody went off to fight the White Walkers and I just hung around, being lazy in King’s Landing. As an actor, I really wanted to be there in the action with everybody, you know, kind of saving the world. And in truth, right now, it certainly feels like you’re playing that role for all of us. And I can’t honestly say that I want to be there with you, because it feels so intense,” he said.

The loss of lives in this battle has been immense for real. Something that many a time, could be demoralizing for the health workers. But Jerome tried to see the positive side of their work.

“I imagine it could be easy to judge yourself, as perhaps at the end of the day, not having succeeded, if another life is lost. But from where we’re standing and from where I’m standing, I wanted to let you know that you succeed every day. Your success is full every day; just turning up and being present for each individual soul, for letting them know that their lives are significant…Especially at a time when their loved ones can’t be present for them…That’s the success for me.

That’s where the true value of your work is being felt. Because otherwise, it’s clear you’re doing everything you can to save their lives. But it’s your presence there with them, that I really, really value; and your courage to go in every day is deeply touching. So, thank you everyone, and keep up the amazing work. It’s so appreciated. God bless you, bye.”

Jerome also shared a message for the workers at the Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust recently. They are serving people in South-Eastern England across Kent, East Sussex, and London. He termed the service of health workers as “extraordinary days of your lives, something that you would never forget.” Kent is Jerome’s home county and apparently, his parents, mother, and step-father live there; both of whom are in the vulnerable age group. Jerome, thus, extended his thanks, “I am truly grateful to know that you guys are there, doing what you’re doing.”

Many of the other Game of Thrones actors have done their share to aid the health workers. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and her husband, Joe Jonas had donated meals to the staff of a Los Angeles hospital. Isaac Hempstead Wright’s (Bran Stark) step-father helped key workers by providing them PPEs.

We appreciate everyone’s contributions. Whatever they may be, they are building us into a coherent unit during these grim, isolating times.

What are your thoughts? We hope you’re still practicing social distancing and washing your hands regularly. The virus is here to stay, and it’s important you don’t lower your guard anytime soon. Talk to us in the comments below.

Leaked set picture from House of The Dragon reveals the interior design of the Red Keep

Published

on

Warner Bros erected a new castle set at Watford, possibly the new Red Keep for House of The Dragon

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The shooting is moving forward at a really fast pace, and HBO has managed to stay rather secretive about it. However, there are some pictures from the shoot that are leaked into the public from time to time, that provide a glimpse of the progress they are making every day. Recently, one of the pictures that was posted accidentally by one of the crew members revealed the interior design of the famed Red Keep, as reported by Watchers on the Wall.

A picture that was posted on the private Instagram account of Stephen Weightman, a key grip, and later reposted by camerarevolution showed various shooting equipment lined up inside a hall that appeared to be similar to Red Keep from Game of Thrones.

At first glance, the picture looks like the inside of the Red Keep. It may be the throne room where King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine) sits on the Iron Throne. It is hard to tell for sure since the camera angle doesn’t show us much of anything.

The most interesting detail is definitely the dragon-themed torch affixed to the wall. It can also be a sea horse, the emblem of House Velaryon, if the picture is from Driftmark. When the Targaryens were ruling the place, they had dragon-related stuff everywhere. They lined the throne room with the skulls of the dead dragons who had served their family before. When Robert Baratheon took over, he got rid of many Targaryen relics, since he had a deep hatred for the family. But way back then, things were different.

Kit Harington looks compelling in Netflix’s Criminal season 2 trailer

Published

Jon Snow

Watching our favorite stars play out a radically different character has always been a matter of interest. One of the most likable characters on our favorite show Game of Thrones was Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. Unlike Jon, Kit seems to know something in Criminals season 2 trailer.

Kit plays the role of a smug estate agent, who is accused of rape. He gets frustrated about being questioned about the same in the trailer. The show’s setting gives you chills as he establishes himself as a self-entitled rich guy who gets what he wants. His angry outbursts only make it worse for him. But is he guilty?

Harington’s new character is a far cry from his bumbling, humble, and heroic character of Jon Snow. Jon Snow was a life-changing role for Kit (Check out his farewell speech for Game of Thrones), but the new edgy role will solidify his versatility. Not to mention his new haircut for the show, sure to gather some attention.

The Netflix series turned in heads after the introduction of its cast for season two. Other than Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, the show has cast 3 more extremely talented artists. Kunal Nayyar from The Big Bang Theory, Sophie Okonedo, an Oscar nominee, and Sharon Horgan from the comedy Catastrophe will also be seen in the series.

From not knowing anything as Jon Snow, to a cunning, perverted estate agent, Kit Harington has come a long way. Being a fan favorite on one of the biggest TV shows ever made, his job will not be easy as a different character. We can be sure he can pull it off with his amazing acting skills.

What do you think about his role in Criminals season 2? Tell us in the comments below.

Jason Momoa looks badass in the new ‘Dune’ movie trailer

Jason Momoa describes Dune as A Very Adult but Beautiful movie

Some actors in Hollywood are famous for their macho style. Jason Momoa has made a name for himself in that category, in each of his roles. Be it Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones, or Arthur Curry of Aquaman, the actor reeks of badassery. He has done it yet again as Duncan Idaho in the latest movie adaptation of the sci-fi novel Dune.

Jason Momoa sports an unbearded look as Duncan Idaho in the Dune movie trailer. He looks menacing even without his beard. His character, Duncan, is a total badass in House Atreides. Jason compared his character to Han Solo of Star Wars in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Khal Drogo

Momoa received widespread praise for his work as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. His character as a powerful warlord, who was the leader of a huge Dothraki army created an impactful image in the audience’s mind. It was so impressive people used to get confused if he knew English at all! Jason played the role for 10 episodes in season 1.

Dune is an award-winning novel written by author Frank Herbert in 1965. Dune was first adapted for the big screen by David Lynch in 1984. It was a success on the box-office and the film is still revered by its fans. The new adaptation of the movie holds great promise and the fans are expecting it to be much better than the previous version.

The director of the new Dune movie is Denis Villeneuve. The movie is set to release on 18th December 2020. It is predicted to be one of the major films of this year. The presence of Jason Momoa makes it all the more exciting to watch.

What do you expect from the movie? Let us know in the comments below.
