Game of Thrones’ Diana Rigg left out from BAFTA memorial montage

When we stare at a starry night sky, we see the light of the stars that died out thousands of years ago. The earth lost one of its brightest stars, Diana Rigg, not too long ago. Her warm light still shines upon our memories serving as an inspiration. Diana Rigg was left out of BAFTA’s in memoriam tribute on April 11 alongside other stars who died in the last year. The Game Of Thrones and James Bond (1969) actress was omitted along with fellow Bond girl Honor Blackman (1964).

People on social media were baffled by the omissions. One wrote: “Was a disgrace that @BAFTA missed Diana Rigg [and] Honor Blackman from in memoriam. 2 iconic actresses from the 60s and starred in 2 of the most highly thought of Bond films and many others. These were MOVIE stars not only television stars!”

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts explained its decision after the feedback, citing a restricted broadcast duration. “With limited time available for obituaries within the broadcast, it isn’t possible to honour all those who have sadly passed away.

BAFTA’s committee considered Dame Diana Rigg to be better known for her work in TV. So she will be included in BAFTA’s TV Awards broadcast this year. Dame Diana Rigg also features in BAFTA’s online records at www.bafta.org/heritage/in-memory-of.

Outlander star Graham McTavish confirms playing a role on House of The Dragon

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has created a huge hype amongst fantasy lovers. HBO is leaving no stones unturned in the marketing of the fantasy series. In the past few days, they’ve released several photos of some of the key characters in costume. Recently, one more important cast member has come under the attention of the Game of Thrones community. The Hobbit and Outlander star Graham McTavish’s Wikipedia Filmography has been updated to include House of The Dragon. And he himself has confirmed the news today.

In an interview with Stylist, McTavish revealed he has been having fun on the set. He said, “I’m enjoying that, yes. I’m really having a lot of fun. We’ve just started. It’s a very big project, so we’re getting to know each other. They’re lovely people. It’s great, but I can’t tell you too much. I can’t tell you really anything about the story! But it involves a lot dragons.”

Sam Heughan, who was with McTavish during the interview, joked: “Am I in it?”

Laughing, McTavish replied: “So far, no. And I have been waiting… I have to say ‘Where is Sam?’ because it’s always in my contract now.”

However, he didn’t say anything about what character he will be playing. Are you excited about House of The Dragon? Who do you think McTavish will play on the show? Tell us in the comments below!

This Job requires you to stay at a House of The Dragon filming site!

HBO has created a huge hype amongst fantasy lovers with the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. The cast and the crew were spotted filming at various locations in Cornwall. Well, it looks like a great opportunity for Game of Thrones fans has recently come up in the news. You can now live at St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, and get paid for it.

St Michael’s Mount is one of the UK’s most iconic and recognisable landmarks. The island with a castle perched on top is currently being used as a filming location for the Games of Thrones prequel. It’s run by the National Trust and St Aubyn Estates – and they are looking for a new Castle Officer. They have now advertised the full-time position – and it has a ‘live-in’ requirement.

This Job requires you to stay at a House of The Dragon filming site!

On the downside, you’ll have to clean toilets and you can get stranded at high tide. Getting takeaways delivered will prove to be a bit problematic. If that hasn’t put you off, the role will have a focus on providing support to the Castle Steward.

Current Castle steward Duncan Murdoch told the BBC: “The best thing about living here is having a sea view from every window. The worst thing is not being able to get a pizza delivered to your door.”

If you are interested in the role you are asked to send a CV and a short covering statement to [email protected] Tell us what you think about the job in the comments below!
