Jason Momoa went broke after his Game of Thrones exit

Very often we idolize celebrities from our favourite shows and movies. When we think of them, their lifestyle, their riches and wardrobe glistens in front of our eyes. We as fans want to be like them, but sometimes forget the struggles they’ve been through to get there. Game of Thrones macho man, Jason Momoa, is one of the most down-to-earth actors one has ever seen. In an interview with InStyle, the actor talked about his struggles in real life.

I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones,” he said. “I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.” Things got better for him after being cast as the Aquaman in Justice League. His solo movie Aquaman solidified his position as a great actor.

The 41-year-old actor also talked about being bullied when young. “I got beat up a lot,” he said. “Just for being slightly different—it was gnarly. I mean, I wore Birkenstocks in middle school, and it was like, ‘You are a freak!’”

It is tough to imagine, someone who played the fierce Khal Drogo had to face bullying at school. Also, the interview proves the fact that celebrities have real-life problems too. You can be broke even if you’re famous.

Jason Momoa is set to appear in the highly awaited movie Dune. What do you think of Momoa’s rise to success? Talk to 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!
