Queen in the North

There are times when we move on with life, carrying memories of our experiences with us. Some memories dig deep into our hearts, and we want to keep a piece of them alive. The same thing goes for actors and actresses. Each role becomes a new memoir for them. And how can one resist when they have been part of a series as amazing as Game of Thrones for 8 seasons?

Sophie Turner did an amazing job as Sansa Stark, Daughter of Lord Ned Stark, King in the North. The character she played portrayed the dire problems faced by women in medieval times. Some of them can be applied to modern times as well. Her rise to success facing off every obstacle she encountered is an inspiring story for everyone going through a rough patch in life.

Sansa ascended to throne as the “Queen in the North” on her return to Winterfell in the season finale “The Iron Throne”. The character shared deep sentiments with the dire-wolf-carved wooden chair, which once belonged to her father, and so did Sophie. After 8 long seasons, a journey that spanned a period of 9 years of hard work, the show became a part of her.

Turner was just 14 when she joined the show. Being that young, the memories of the set are sure to leave a lifelong impact on her life. It is natural that she wanted to keep a prop from the set as a reminder of an amazing epic she was a part of.

The actress welcomed the prop used as the “Throne of Winterfell” to her home. She posted about it on her Instagram with a photo of the throne at her home with the caption “Welcome”. Sophie recently also welcomed her daughter Willa, along with husband Joe Jonas to their lives, completing the happy family.

The antique-looking crafted wooden throne is sure to turn up heads as a prized collection. What do you think of it? Please tell us in the comments below.

Pedro Pascal becomes a superhero in Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes

The year 2020 was a Red Wedding for humanity. In times like these, we often wish for a superhero to have existed in reality. Even though we don’t have superheroes in real life, we do have superhero movies to help us get through tough times. What’s better than seeing our favourite stars donning the cape? Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal joins the superhero squad of We Can Be Heroes.

The Spy Kids filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is back with another action-hero-family genre movie. Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook and Christian Slater are members of a superhero squad called Heroics. Priyanka Chopra is the Director of the Heroics. The movie begins with the group kidnapped and their kids left to try to save them. The film will also have a cameo by Sharkboy and Lavagirl, superhero avatars created by Rodriguez in 2005.

Rodriguez has often expressed the desire to work with Pedro. The new movie will follow the same light-hearted comedy and sci-fi fantasy theme as his earlier works. Looks like the year 2020 is finally ending with a good note. (So many Game of Thrones stars appearing on other platforms, and of course, Biden’s win!).

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin updates fans about Winds of Winter

Game of Thrones TV series ended more than a year ago. The final season of the show divided the fan-base into two. One loved it, the other wanted something more. Hardcore fans are still waiting for the next book of the series, The Winds of Winter.

Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin recently updated fans about his progress on the upcoming book. He noticed a sudden spike in the number of viewers on his blog Not a Blog, and joked, “Sometimes I do get the feeling that most of you reading my posts here care more about what is happening in Westeros than what is happening in the United States.”

He further wrote, “So let me assure you that, when not sweating out election returns or brooding over other real-world problems, I have continued to work on THE WINDS OF WINTER.

No, sorry, still not done, but I do inch closer. It is a big book. I try not to dwell on that too much. I write a chapter at a time, a page-at-a-time, a sentence at-a-time, a word at-a-time. It is the only way. And sometimes I rewrite.” 

Martin explained he has been spending a lot of time with the Lannisters. Cersei and Tyrion in particular. He has also visited Dorne and the Old Town in his book. He is currently writing new chapters, revisiting and tweaking old ones as well.

George wrote, “None of this is even remotely new. It is how the first five books were written.” 

The Game of Thrones author is slowly picking up speed. He once gave an example of how the books will be different from the show. Are you excited for The Winds of Winter? Talk to us in the comments below!

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The popularity and success of the show have left fans worldwide wanting for more. HBO has already teased the fans with the announcement of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. Moreover, the television network has added to the hype by adding Paddy Considine to the show’s cast as King Viserys. Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is really happy with the show’s progress. Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog :

George R.R. Martin hints at great progress on House of The Dragon production

Well, aside from COVID-19 slowing everything down, we are making great progress on the HBO prequel HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Ryan and Miguel are in London, casting has begun, it is all looking very exciting.”

He also talked about his other projects, “I wish I could say that things are also going great on all the other television and film projects I am involved with, either as a producer or as the author of the original source material (i.e. novels and short stories). I can’t. Very little shooting is taking place, and almost nothing is being greenlit. Of course, development continues… but there’s a reason they call it “development hell.” Sigh. 

So that’s where all that stands. Or at least, that’s as much as I am allowed to tell you right now. Hang in there, friends.” 

The great strides in the progress of the much-awaited series are welcome news for all the fans worldwide. Are you excited for the House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!
