Our world needs a lot of goodness and kindness right now. Speaking of, Game of Thrones actors have been especially very kind since the pandemic outbreak. While somebody like Isaac Hempstead Wright has helped his stepdad distribute the PPE to the health workers, the likes of Sophie Turner has been vocal about the need for social distancing. They haven’t been behind in giving charities as well. Maisie Williams generously gave £50000 to her animal shelter, Emilia Clarke too, has been doing her bit in spreading happiness as well. Read on to know more about it.

Mid-“my batter looks like its thrown up on itself, how about yours?!” Chat… THIS is how I throw a cook-along party, (in Covid time that IS a thing I swear) full of mess and big arm gestures in lieu of actual cooking knowledge. Ted @gommie_poem and I were joined in my messy kitchen by 12 beautiful souls as we all made and ate…pancakes! 🥳 (a soufflé seemed a bridge too far) Quote of the meal “mine look like chicken fillets” (to be fair I found a recipe that didn’t need flour so things got a little… DENSE. 😋) This roaring good time we all had was a thank you for the incredible donations these wonders made towards @sameyouorg Covid Relief fund. We have created an online clinic for brain injury recovery which is growing into something truly magic. LIKE OUR PANCAKES! #newcookingshowanyone? #illbrushuponmywhiskingskills #👩‍🍳 #❤️ #👌

Clarke had launched her charity SameYou in 2019 which looks after the adults who have suffered strokes and brain injuries. She especially wanted to help the individuals during the pandemic and wanted to raise £250,000 for the same.

We have absolutely loved how active our favorite stars have been in these trying times. Clarke has been especially associated with multiple charity events which just goes on to show what a golden heart she is.

George R.R. Martin’s original plans for Jaime Lannister revealed

Jaime Lannister

Game of Thrones refined the way we view TV shows. One of the many reasons why the show reached great heights was its character development. When it comes to that category, no character has gone through greater change than the Kingslayer Jaime Lannister.

Played by Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jaime started out as a villain. He was responsible for crippling Brandon Stark after he accidentally discovered his incestuous relationship with his sister, Cersei. Jaime was the one who captured Ned Stark leading him to his execution at King’s Landing.

George r r martin

The author of the Game of Thrones books George R.R. Martin originally had different plans for Jaime Lannister. Fans got a glimpse of a 3-page reveal when Harper Collins, publisher of A Song of Ice and Fire, accidentally leaked it on Twitter. The tweet was later removed.

According to the script, Jaime Lannister was supposed to be one of the main antagonists. He was originally written to be a cruel-sadistic villain, who desired power over everything else. His lust for control over the realms even led him to sit on the Iron Throne for a while. The showrunners changed the script for the show.

The Kingslayer goes through a change of heart throughout the TV series. He protected Brienne of Tarth’s honor and saved her from the attack of a bear. The two eventually got close and shared a mutual respect. Jaime joined forces with the Starks and Daenerys to fight off the White Walkers.

His character was shown to be regretful of his past actions. He died trying to protect his sister when Daenerys attacked King’s Landing. He could never let go of his love for Cersei, which led to his downfall. To think that could have ended another way!

Game of Thrones fans react to lead casting for prequel series House of the Dragon

House of the dragon

Ever since its announcement, fans all around the world are going crazy over the rumors of casting for the Game of Thrones’ prequel House of the Dragon. Fans have been debating about the best choice for The Rogue Prince, Daemon Targaryen, over the last few weeks.

The House of the Dragon series is based on George R. R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood. The book covers the first 150 years of House Targaryen’s rule in Westeros. The show will be allegedly centered around The Dance of the Dragons, a civil war that happened about 170 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

The casting call for Daemon was recently published. It said that HBO seeks an actor between the ages of 40 and 50 years old. It solidifies the theory because Daemon was middle-aged when the civil war began.

The character description for Daemon is as follows:

The younger brother to King Viserys, Daemon wasn’t born with ‘naked ambition’ for the throne despite being in line for it. He’s less methodical and more impetuous. Not to mention easily bored… stumbling from one distraction to the next with the subconscious yet singular obsession with earning the love and acceptance of his brother the king. Most of Daemon’s joy is found at sword-point. But even as the most experienced warrior of his time, he vacillates between vile and heroic, making him the true rogue of the series.”

Some of the fans are expressing their trust issues online, saying the casting can either make or break the show. Some common fan choices for the role are Patrick Wilson, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, and Ian Somerhalder.

Who do you think would be the perfect choice? Let us know in the comments below.

Olenna Tyrell

Last week the world was deprived of another jewel that once shined bright over the big screen. The entertainment industry is mourning the loss of multi-talented actress, Diana Rigg. She passed away at her home on Thursday at the age of 82.

Diana was an important part of the Game of Thrones family. She played the role of wise and cunning ‘Queen of Thrones’ Lady Olenna Tyrell. Her journey began in 2013 with the introduction of the character in the series, and she made the character likeable in the common households.

Rigg’s presence is being deeply missed by her Game of Throne’s co-stars. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister on the show expressed his sentiments on Twitter.

John Bradley, who played Samwell Tarly on the show tweeted:

Another Game of Thrones star, Liam Cunningham, who played Sir Davos Seaworth, said on Twitter,

The official Game of Thrones Twitter account posted, “Be a dragon. The realm will always remember Diana Rigg.”

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin also paid his respects :

Writer for the show Bryan Cogman tweeted:

Diana was a dazzling actress and a compassionate and kind human being. Her presence was comforting and inspiring for her co-stars, so was the beauty with which she executed her roles. Other than Game of Thrones, she starred in the 1960’s The Avengers, the Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and many more.

We as fans pray that her soul rests in peace. Please feel free to share your feelings with us in the comments below.
