Comic books own a massive fandom today, thanks to the various TV and movie adaptations we’ve seen in the past few decades. The superhero genre practically rules the entertainment industry right now, prime examples being MCU and DCEU. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has recently signed up for a role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion series. The actress is keen on exploring more comic book universes. She will now co-write a comic herself.

Clarke will write her first superhero comic book series M.O.M.: Mother of Madness from Image Comics this July. The former Mother of Dragons will now write about a mother who is also a superhero.

M.O.M.: Mother of Madness centres around Maya, who is described as an “under-the-weather scientist by day, over-the-top superhero by night, and badass single mom 24/7.” Each issue of the series will be extra-length. The series depicts Maya using her superpowers to take on a secret sect of human traffickers.

We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes?” the Game of Thrones star tells Entertainment Weekly. “Maya has had a very hard life, and she finds herself in a place where everything that makes her unique, she hates and is ashamed about. It’s only in the discovery of her powers that she finds her true acceptance of who she is.”

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella) was groped on ‘Benidorm’ set

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella) was groped on ‘Benidorm' set

We are living in the 21st century, and with all the technological advancements humanity has witnessed we still can’t guarantee the safety of the other half of the human race. Crimes against women don’t seem to stop, be it on the streets or within the four walls of a room. These blood-boiling incidents show the lack of morality and a genuine sense of respect in the minds of such animalistic ‘gentlemen’. Game of Thrones star Hannah Waddingham, famous for playing Septa Unella on the show, recently revealed she was groped on set while filming the ITV show Benidorm.

Waddingham played Tonya Dyke in the sixth season of the show, which aired back in 2014. “I’d never been groped in my life, but I was groped three times in one week in Benidorm,” she told The Mirror.

Without naming any cast or crew member specifically, Waddingham said, “To get on set, I had to walk through the hotel dressed as Tonya in some non-existent bikini and high heels with blokes gawping at me… or rather groping me.”

“I had to stop myself doing what I’d instinctively do – knock their blocks off – because I was working. A little angel on my shoulder was going, ‘Leave it, Hannah’. But I really wanted to take off my five-inch wedges and whack them.”

A few months ago, Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco accused Marilyn Manson of sexual assault. It seems women are not safe anywhere. How can we curb such instances of violence against women? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones and The Crown actors teamed up for A Splinter of Ice drama at Cambridge Arts Theatre

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”- A Shakespearean phrase perfectly sums up the world as a theatre. Two veteran actors from two hugely popular series recently got together to show the world the beauty of theatre. Game of Thrones’ Oliver Ford Davies and The Crown’s Stephen Boxer teamed up on stage at Cambridge Arts Theatre in A Splinter of Ice. Oliver played Maester Cressen in the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones.

He played novelist Graham Greene, while Stephen Boxer played the notorious Soviet spy Kim Philby on stage. The show ran from 20th to 24th July at the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

It is a fascinating historical drama exploring the truth and real friendship between Graham Greene and Kim Philby. Moscow, 1987. As the Cold War begins to thaw, an extraordinary reunion takes place.

As Graham Greene and Kim Philby raise their vodka glasses after 30 years have passed, Brown’s compelling play asks whether Philby betrayed his friend as well as his country, and how much the writer of The Third Man knew about Philby’s secret life.

Oliver Ford Davies won ‘Best Actor’ at the 1990 Olivier Awards for his performance in David Hare’s Racing Demon at the National Theatre.

Last year, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill presented the theatre drama, Sadie. Are you interested in theatre? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones exhibit ‘Unknown Worlds’ held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany

Game of Thrones exhibit held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany

Art makes you see the world in a different view. However, one artist has dedicated his talent to show the world the hidden landscapes of popular novels. A few years ago, artist Sven Sauer curated Unseen Westeros, an exhibit where accomplished artists took a close look at the fictional world created by George R.R. Martin and painted their own versions of places we didn’t get to see in on HBO’s Game of Thrones, or even in Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books. Some of them include the Shadow Lands, the far country of Yi Ti and dragons over the Shivering Sea. This year the Unseen Worlds exhibit was held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany, which featured 60 new images created by 40 international artists who worked on Game of Thrones, Avatar, Star Trek, X-Men, The Avengers and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Los Siete Reinos has shared some images from the event, and they look spectacular.
