23rd October was an important day for Game of Thrones fans all around the world. It is the birthday of one of the biggest stars of the show, Emilia Clarke. The beloved Khaleesi, Queen of the Dragons turned 34 on Friday. It was also an important day for Deadpool fans as well, as it was actor Ryan Reynolds’ birthday too. The veteran actor turned 44 on the same day.
Ryan Reynolds is known and adored for his fun-loving and comic nature. He took to Twitter to cause a stir amongst the fans when he tried to troll the Game of Thrones actress over their shared birthday. He declared, quite hilariously, that it was his day, not hers.
So sorry. I moved her birthday this year. It was feeling a little crowded for me. https://t.co/Mx5CXPKH4T

Emilia Clarke, however, hasn’t been on Twitter since 2013. So it is highly unlikely she would come out of her Twitter-retirement to respond to his antics.
Canada’s official Twitter account made sure to wish their national treasure a happy birthday to which he responded almost right away. Reynolds adorably responded just one minute later with two heart emojis and one Canadian flag emoji.
“We just wanted to pop into your feed and wish you a happy birthday on behalf of Canadians far and wide! Thanks for being you, eh?,” Canada tweeted.
Clarke and Reynolds are two of the best performers in the entertainment industry. Emilia even continued to work after her secret brain surgery back in 2012. Send your best wishes to them in the comments below!
Marvel’s Miles Morales actually liked Game of Thrones’ controversial ending
Game of Thrones wrapped-up filming more than a year ago. The last season was clouded in controversy, and the fanbase was divided into two factions. One loved the creativity of the showrunners, who completed the show before George R.R. Martin could finish his novels. The other campaigned for a remake of the eighth season. However, Marvel comics were seen poking fun at the show’s controversial ending. It was none other than the modern incarnation of the hero, your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, Miles Morales.
Miles was fighting one of the dragons of Symbiote God Knull, who is trying to conquer the earth in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #23. He not only survives the encounter without getting infected by the symbiote, but his joking ways during the battle do not disappoint. In true Spider-Man fashion, he yells out, “You mad cuz that show you were on keeps ending up on ‘worst TV endings of all time’ lists?”
Surprisingly, he starts to follow up with a hint that he actually liked the controversial ending. He says he doesn’t care what anyone says… but is unfortunately cut off when the dragon’s tail snaps his web. He goes full-on Daenerys when he uses his webbing to ride it.

Game of Thrones’ Richard Brake’s co-stars couldn’t recognize him without the Night King make-up
When it comes to costume design and VFX scenes, no show even comes close to HBO’s Game of Thrones. The on-point casting, gruesome battle scenes and amazing storyline won the show record number of Emmy Awards. The amount of hard work that goes into making prosthetics is evident from the detailing on each character. The show once released a behind-the-scene promo showcasing the hard work of makeup artists. They were so good that Richard Brake’s co-stars didn’t even know it was him under the Night King get-up.
Brake told Digital Spy, “I was covered in prosthetics – massive fingernails; false teeth; literally the biggest contacts you could put in a human eye – they were agonising. So obviously the last thing I really felt like doing was sitting around and having chitchats between takes. I would just stay very quiet.”
He continued, “On one of the first nights we were shooting ‘Hardhome’, everyone was gathering in Belfast to eat, all the actors. I showed up a little late, of course, because it takes two hours to get the make-up off. And then I sat down, and, of course, Kit and everybody went, ‘Who the hell is this guy?’ They thought I was a homeless man on the street that just popped in to have a free meal. I said, ‘No, no. I’m the Night King. I was the guy who was chasing you off the pier all day’.”

George R. R. Martin amused by Harvard Lampoon’s Game of Thrones parody
They say laughter is the best medicine. Looking at the current scenario, it seems quite fit. With the pandemic on the rise again and no viable vaccine, smiles are the only cure we have. Comedians have often used parodies to induce laughs amongst the audience. Even TV shows and movies have their own parodies. Therefore, it’s not possible for a show as big as Game of Thrones to skip the radar as well. Moreover, it seems author George R.R. Martin is heartily amused as well.
On his personal blog Not a Blog, Martin confessed being parodied in a post. He wrote, “Way way back in 1969, when the world and I were young, the Harvard Lampoon did a hilarious send-up of Tolkien and LORD OF THE RINGS, called BORED OF THE RINGS. It is still in print all these years later. Spam and Dildo, Arrowroot son of Arrowshirt, Pepsi and Moxie… a hoot.
And now, I guess, it is my turn.
The Harvard Lampoon has turned its sights on A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and come up with LAME OF THRONES.
Yes, they sent me a copy.
No, I have not looked at it yet. I am working up the courage.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say… but the parody is right up there, so…
Thanks. I guess.”
Martin earlier updated fans about House of The Dragon’s progress. What do you think of the Game of Thrones parody? Tell us in the comments below!
