Game of Thrones’ story involved a lot of political issues besides the breath-taking scenery and gruesome battles. The seemingly innocent Sansa had to grow up because of being continuously manhandled by monsters dressed as men. She became an efficient ruler as the Queen in the North.
Just as the meek and pleasing Sansa learned to stand up for herself, Sophie Turner, the actress who portrayed the character, doesn’t feel shy to express her political opinions in public. The 24-year old actress called out the US President Donald Trump for his schoolboy error during the final presidential debate.
Sophie, who recently embraced motherhood, posted a smiling Instagram selfie with the caption, “He called Europe a country!” Earlier, the Game of Thrones actress called Donald Trump a moron for encouraging citizens to drink bleach as a COVID-19 cure.
Twitter did not fall behind in following the Queen in the North in mocking the US President.
Hi, Trump. Just reminding you that Europe is a continent, not a country.

The US President has often been compared with villainous Game of Thrones characters like Joffery and Euron. The Game of Thrones cast has often expressed their dislike for Donald Trump, even openly calling him out for his statements and behaviour.

Ian McShane and Rory McCann once clashed on Game of Thrones’ set over a burger
Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to film in the past decade both in terms of budget and viewership. Managing such a huge franchise is no joke. Even though the showrunners and the crew were careful and worked really hard to make the show near perfect, little accidents and goofs slipped through their clutches. Like the one time, a Starbucks cup was left on Winterfell set during filming. Sometimes things got more serious and resulted in clashes between the actors.
Entertainment Weekly Editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon delves into such behind-the-set mysteries. Game of Thrones director Mark Mylod revealed one such fight in the book. The clash between Ian McShane (Brother Ray) and Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane) over a distasteful burger.
Mylod described Ian as a force of nature. He said, “He’s gone down in Game of Thrones crew folklore as being the person who most improved the catering. His lunch was brought up to him and he disliked his burger.”
“So he kicked it and it went flying, and had a few choice words of what he thought of the burger. The burger whacked into Rory, who was enjoying his burger and had no complaints.”
There is no mention of how Rory reacted over the flying burger. Although according to the co-creator, it was his ‘inner rage’ that landed him his role in the series in the first place. Mark went on to thank Ian, however, because after that incident the show got a new caterer.

Emilia Clarke and the infamous coffee cup – The saga continues…
Fans have always been a bit nosy when it comes to the personal lives of Game of Thrones cast. When you’re that famous, it is hard to escape the curious eyes of your admirers. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, famous for her bold character Daenerys Targaryen, was spotted with a coffee cup on a cold Sunday morning in London.
The gorgeous actress, who turned 34 last week on 23rd of October, was donning a puffer coat and a brown beanie. She also kept a trusty orange umbrella tucked under her arm to avoid getting wet in case it rained.
Emilia’s snap with the coffee cup is reminiscent of the infamous Game of Thrones’ scene where a Starbucks cup was left on the table. Fans were quick to spot it and were going crazy as it was too silly a mistake to commit for a show that big on budget.
In Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4, ‘The Last of Starks‘, we see Tormund, very drunk, praising Jon Snow for all of his accomplishments. Daenerys is sitting on the table, spiralling into paranoia about Jon’s natural charisma and how much he is loved in the North. When the shot pans out, a Starbucks cup can be neatly spotted right next to Emilia Clarke.
The fans were in a fit over the little goof, and it became an instant meme. Let’s hope Clarke doesn’t have to face any such situation in future. Tell us how you felt about the infamous scene in the comments below!
Ryan Reynolds trolled Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke on their shared birthday
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!
