Game of Thrones was a story of Kings and Lords, Wars and castles, and most importantly a power struggle. Of the numerous Houses and their Lords, Lord Ramsay of House Bolton was the most sadistic one. Actor Iwan Rheon was relieved when his character died on the show (It was really satisfying as well!). He will once again play a dreadful Lord but in a different franchise. Rheon will play the Dark Elf beastmaster Rakarth of Karond Kar in the Game Total War: Warhammer 2.
Creative Assembly recently revealed the next free Legendary Lord coming to Total War: Warhammer 2, and it’s the Dark Elf beastmaster. In a teaser video, the studio has revealed that the character will be voiced by the Welsh actor.
There could hardly be a better audition for a Dark Elf role than playing Ramsay Bolton, and Rheon’s performance as the cruel and calculating bastard son of Roose Bolton was bone-chilling in the series. In the clip posted to the Total War YouTube account, you can hear every bit of the sociopathy Rheon oozed as Ramsay.
“We have a visitor, Bracchus,” he says, addressing Rakarth’s black dragon companion and battle steed. “Shall we hear them? Or flay them alive?” This is well within normal etiquette for Warhammer’s Druchii, as they call themselves – the Dark Elves are legendary for their cruelty and malevolence.

Check out this interview of a young George R. R. Martin shared by the author himself
Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin is one of the most celebrated authors of the present generation. Several of his novels are best selling books all over the world, and of course, the TV adaptation of his A Song of Ice and Fire broke all records in TV history. He recently shared a video of himself on his blog Not A Blog, where a younger version of him is seen criticizing the sci-fi genre for being too predictive.
The interview was with the University of Calgary’s campus TV station NUTV. “I don’t think anybody reads science fiction in order to find out what the future is going to be like,” he said. “If they did, they’d go crazy. For every right prediction in a science fiction story, there are a thousand terribly wrong predictions.”
“Any literature is written for the contemporary audience…It’s meant for the audience here and now and it’s only to the extent that it speaks to that contemporary audience that it is successful or it is a failure.”
“I don’t remember that hair,” he writes on his Not a Blog. “My hair was dark brown when I was young. When I got older, it went to gray and then white. Judging from this clip, I guess 1991 was when it changed, but I don’t ever recall it being half-and-half like that, or having a dark beard with white hair. But I guess I did.”

Jason Momoa dedicates his Dune fight scene to Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke
Game of Thrones was a beautiful journey for the cast and the fans alike. It was a show like no other, breaking records and gaining unprecedented popularity. The cast made lifelong relationships with each other. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke may have played a couple on-screen for a little time on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, they have been great friends behind the screens in real life. Momoa recently shared a behind-the-scene training video from Dune, and he dedicated one of his badass fight scenes to Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi.
Momoa shared a new behind-the-scenes video today about his role as a loyal soldier of House Atreides, Duncan Idaho, in the upcoming Denis Villeneuve movie. It’s short, but sweet, focusing less on Idaho’s character and more on how Momoa prepared for the character’s major fight sequences in the film—where Duncan single-handedly goes up against swaths of men, carving a path through their shields and armour with his twin daggers.
But perhaps the cutest aside is that just as Momoa prepares to go in for filming on one of his big fight scenes in the first movie—battling the forces of House Harkonnen hand to hand in a scene glimpsed throughout the trailers—Momoa casually dates the footage, by saying that he’d just watched the Game of Thrones series finale the night before. We’re not left to wonder what exactly the former Khal thought of the series’ end, but he does offer an inkling that he was perhaps not too pleased that Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen didn’t avoid Momoa’s own grim Thrones fate in the end—going into filming the battle with a simple “This one’s for you, Khaleesi!”

Game of Thrones fan creates real-life version of Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword
Game of Thrones had some of the most iconic weaponry in television history. They have been turned into props and merchandise and are quite sought after. But there are some weapons that have seemed quite impossible to make, that is, until now. Remember when the character Beric Dondarrion used a flaming sword as his trademark weapon and wielded it against the Hound in season 3? He used it against the army of the dead in season 8 as well. A fan has managed to bring fantasy to life, after making a real-life replica of the sword, along with the flames.
YouTube channel Faraway Forge posted a video of the full construction of the sword step by step. In the video below, the man takes you through each and every step of the process all the way to the big flaming final product.
The video shows the full process of making the sword, from start to finish. It appears to have been coated with some kind of material film that supports combustion for longer periods of time. It is truly amazing to watch such a beautiful creation come to life.
