Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke created a profile on celebrity dating app ‘Raya'

Game of Thrones had plenty of social messages hidden in plain sight. Though it may not be too obvious, it was a representation of our own society. According to recent research, the fantasy show is very similar to real-world human interactions. That’s the reason why the show was such a big hit, people could relate to the characters. The series was a big platform to showcase the Domestic Abuse women face behind closed doors. Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), has come forward in support of them.

Emilia posted a picture on her Instagram with a heart symbol drawn on her hand. She captioned, “This is something I care deeply about, and a problem that is everywhere, but behind closed doors.

For far too many home isn’t a safe place for those living with domestic abuse. I want to reach out and connect to anyone reading this who may feel scared in their own homes during this time.

At home should not mean at risk – we support you. #YouAreNotAlone.

If you or anyone you know is at risk of, or experiencing domestic abuse, you can leave your home to seek refuge. The police will respond to your calls and support services remain available.

Call 999 if you are in immediate danger. If you can’t speak and are calling from a mobile, listen to the operator and, when prompted, dial 55 to be connected to the police who will help.

If you suspect a neighbour or someone you know is currently experiencing domestic abuse please do call 999 and let them take the situation forward.”

It’s time to raise our voices against the issue. Tell us how we can curb the violence in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Hafthor Björnsson looks ripped before boxing debut

Game of Thrones showcased some of the finest warriors in fantastical television history. Out of all the warriors on the show, Ser Gregor Clegane (The Mountain) was the most feared. Why wouldn’t he be fearsome? The Mountain was played by the world’s strongest man Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson himself!

Björnsson showed off his great strength by breaking the world’s deadlift record- he lifted 501 kg. After setting up the milestone, he challenged long time rival Eddie Hall to a boxing match. The match has been dubbed the heaviest boxing match in history.

Bjornsson is showing off his incredible new figure as he prepares for his highly anticipated boxing debut. And he looks incredibly terrifying, even more than how he was on Game of Thrones as the Mountain.

The 6-foot-7 monster dropped 40 pounds in one month after the official announcement of the boxing match. In May, Bjornsson beat Hall’s world record deadlift to set a new mark at 1,104 pounds. The pair have long been engaged in a war of words with each previously accusing the other of cheating.

Björnsson’s recent Instagram posts clearly show that he has continued his weight cut and is looking fierce ahead of the fight, still five months away. Who do you think will win the bout? Talk to us in the comments below!

Icelandic Volcanic eruption reminds Netizens of Game of Thrones

Icelandic Volcanic eruption reminds Netizens of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones first premiered on HBO ten years ago on April 17, 2011. The show is dubbed the greatest TV show of the 21st century. The series won a total of 59 Primetime Emmy Awards. The record still stands to this day. No wonder HBO is so invested in exploring the Game of Thrones universe, with several prequels in development. HBO will celebrate a decade of Game Of Thrones with its month-long event, The Iron Anniversary. And it seems like nature has joined the celebrations as well.

Last week, Mount Fagradalsfjall erupted after 900 years of slumber 40 kilometres from the capital Reykjavik. The area has become a tourist hot spot for the weekend hikers. Thousands occasionally gather admiring the hot red glowing lava that streams into a river. Recent pictures of the visitors from the scene have now sparked jokes and humour across social media. The internet compared the breath-taking volcanic spurts and incandescent lava with a scene from the HBO drama.

The photos of eruption scenes were captured by an aerial videographer, Brian Emfinger. Many compared its visual appeal with R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series’ Game of Thrones’ symbology that revolves around ice vs. fire. The image of the 300,000 cubic meters (10.5 million cubic feet) of lava streaming in the ice-cold region and Icelanders. Collectively reminded the internet of HBO’s screenplay, as the scenes bore resemblance with the fantasy drama.

What do you think of the graphic scenery? How are you celebrating the Iron anniversary? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman lists his favourite episodes celebrating the Iron Anniversary

HBO’s Iron Anniversary celebrations are currently underway on account of a decade of Game of Thrones. The month-long celebrations will include various events and specials related to the epic on HBO and HBO Max. The Marathrone, which began on 10th April, is already at its peak. Bryan Cogman, the writer for the acclaimed series, is busy reliving his favourite moments from the Marathrone.

He listed his favourite episodes, character-wise, on Twitter. “Okay, as promised, I’m starting my own #GoT watchlist thread after taking a look at some of the, let’s just say… interesting selections for this Iron Anniversary thing,” Cogman tweeted on Monday. “Will add to this thread throughout the week.”

The characters that were on his list were Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister and Brienne. Jon was first on his list, and of course, Battle of the Bastards had to be there.

Next came the Dragon Queen which started with the Golden Crown.

Tyrion’s list included the Battle of Blackwater that made him famous, in a good way, at King’s Landing.

Next comes Sansa’s list.

Arya’s list was complicated for Cogman, but he did it anyway.

Bryan had heaps of praises for Lena Headey’s performance as Cersei.

Jaime’s walk to redemption can be seen on Cogman’s list.

He ended the list with Brienne of Tarth, as of today.

Well, the Iron Anniversary celebrations have just begun, and there’s plenty more in store. Do you agree with Bryan’s list? Or do you have your own? Tell us in the comments below!
