Interview

Game of Thrones’ Joe Dempsie was uncomfortable over Arya-Gendry romance

Arya Gendry

Game of Thrones had a lot of memorable flings, some lasted for a while, others didn’t. Some of them were adorned by viewers, and there were others that disgusted them. Amongst all the couples on the series, Arya and Gendry stand out as being the pair who are loved and disliked at the same time.

Arya and Gendry’s relationship started as a friendship that developed over time into sweet love. (Though it ended with an unexpected sex scene). In season 8, we see them parting ways after the explicit love-making scene.

In an interview with the Independent, Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry on the show, revealed he was uncomfortable over Arya-Gendry romance. He said,

“It was an odd transition purely because I’d seen Maisie grow up. I’d met her when she was a child and, during the course of the first three seasons, it was something I was asked regularly because [the Game of Thrones] books suggest there’s a possible romance. It always made me slightly uncomfortable.”

He added, “They were asking me to comment on whether I – at the time, a 25-year-old man – would like my character to hook up with a 14-year-old. I always avoided answering the questions. But it was something I then had to think about.”

Joe went on to say that the scenes were ‘absolutely fine’. He said that he ‘didn’t want to patronise’ Maisie by refusing to film them.

What do you think of the pair? Let’s us know in the comments below!

Emilia Clarke accepts fans were ‘really upset' by Game of Thrones finale

Game of Thrones Season 8 wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The season finale divided the fan base into two. One was satisfied with the ending, the other demanded a season remake. Some blamed the absence of George R. R. Martin’s next instalment of books. While some blamed the showrunners’ piqued interest to launch a Star Wars feature film trilogy with Disney’s Lucasfilm. Even the show’s alum Emilia Clarke gets why fans were f**king p***ed about the final episode. After all, she cared deeply about her character, Daenerys, who wasn’t treated well by the showrunners. She once again accepted the fact that the finale disappointed a lot of fans who were expecting a lot more in a recent interview.

Emilia was asked about the fan reaction to the ending during a recent appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan. She replied, “Whatever ending we were ever gonna come up with — like, let’s say that made us all hairdressers — everyone still would’ve been really upset, because people joyfully didn’t want it to end at all. So I think any ending would have upset everybody. But our ending really, really did seem to really upset [people].”

The Mother of Dragons makes it pretty clear that she understands that people are deeply hurt, and so is she. But she seems to have come to terms with it. Have you? Tell us in the comments below!

Hannah Waddingham does not regret doing Game of Thrones’ Waterboarding scene

Gasping for breath, drowning in water is one of the most common nightmares people experience in their dreams. One Game of Thrones actress had to go through that in real, on set, for an excruciating 10 hours. Hannah Waddingham, who played Septa Unella on the show, was strapped to a table, to be tortured by Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister. She described her harrowing experience in a recent episode of Collider’s Ladies Night.

She described filming the scene as her second most dreadful experience, right after childbirth. However, she’d gladly do it again, she validated her point speaking to The Talk in a recent interview.

What I said at the end of it that wasn’t picked up on, as I would 100% do it again,” she shared on the program. “Because being given the chance to be on something like Game Of Thrones, you have to go there.”

Hannah added, “That’s why the show is so magnificent, because it brings everybody out, it takes everyone to the nth degree of their emotions. And that’s why it was so successful because you believe it, you believe the gore and you believe the tragedy and the drama.”

She also talked about how her character, Septa Unella’s fate on the show was different from the original script. What do you think of the waterboarding scene? Talk to us in the comments below!

She said, “The crew is a hundred strong. The artistry involved is mind-blowing. The sets that have been created are fucking gorgeous, and the costumes. Down to the tiny prop that you hold in your hands, there’s just so much thought that goes into it and so much history as well. It’s amazing to work on a film, a TV show, or anything where everyone is just so passionate about it.”

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the crew members who are working hard to present another cinematic masterpiece for us. What are your expectations from House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!
