Kit Harington passed on a superhero role while filming Game of Thrones: ‘I don’t want it'

The year 2020 was a Red Wedding year for most people around the world. Many near and dear ones were taken away from us, including Game of ThronesDiana Rigg. The flow of tragedies did not stop with the wretched year, as the world was still battling the pandemic, the second wave of coronavirus 2021. We lost an important source of Game of Thrones news source in April this year. Sarah Hughes, who wrote for The Guardian and Observer, was a big A Song of Ice and Fire fan from long before the TV series premiered on HBO. She passed away in April this year at the age of 48 due to stage 4 cancer. Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington memorialized the late journalist with a small video message.

Harington appears in a reel of people memorizing Hughes on a website celebrating her life. The whole video is nearly two hours long and very heart-touching, but the Twitter account @KitHarington10 excerpted Harington’s section for Game of Thrones fans. Harington can be seen reading an article Hughes wrote for The Guardian in 2019 about Game of Thrones and her cancer diagnosis, shortly before the final season was about to release.

Let us remember Sarah Hughes, as her watch has now ended, and keep her in our thoughts and prayers for her great service to the Game of Thrones community. Amen!

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day.

Recently, a few more pictures from the production set were leaked. And we finally have a first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled Valyrian Steel sword the Dark Sister.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his belt buckle while carrying his sword behind him.

Another image shows him in what looks like a melancholy state, kneeling in the sea with his shoulders hunched and his head bowed down as his sword stands upright in the sand.

The last of the photos show him lying on the sand, while Dark Sister is still stuck in the sand while Matt talks to a crew member.

This might be a soul-searching moment for Daemon Targaryen, since no other cast members are seen around him as he takes a stroll along the beach.

Theo Nate to play Laenor Velaryon in Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Fans have been wondering for a while about some of the key characters that have not been announced yet. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, depicting a scene being filmed involving a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon.

We already know actress Milly Alcock is playing the younger version of Rhaenyra, as it was announced officially a while ago. However, this is the first time anyone has ever seen Laenor Velaryon in action, played by actor Theo Nate. Nate is a budding actor whose acting credits include Time (2021), a show starring Sean Bean.

Rhaenyra and Laenor were married at a young age, so the leaked pictures that have been circulating on the internet must be from around that time. Also, Laenor dies young in the books, after the couple have their children. So maybe Rhaenyra is seeing him off for the last time at the beach?

Holiday park says ‘House of The Dragon’ filming is driving guests away

More leaks from the set of House of The Dragon hint at a major battle scene being filmed at Cornwall

It has recently been confirmed that the production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has returned to Cornwall. Several photos of the shoot were leaked recently, which included what looked like a huge huge battle sequence as well as the first look at Rhaenys Velaryon, Laenor Velaryon and a young Rhaenyra Targaryen. Fans of the fantasy epic might be psyched, but the neighbours to the show’s production site not so much.

A holiday park in Cornwall has complained that nearby filming for the Game Of Thrones spin-off House Of The Dragon has driven away their guests. The owners of The Meadow Holiday Park, who are neighbours to the show’s production site, have now said that they have lost business on account of the noise from production, which took place between 5 am and 10 pm.

Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed,” owner Krys Humphrey explained to Cornwall Live. “The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.”

She continued, “They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes. We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.”

Humphrey added that the House of The Dragon production team has offered to distribute gift baskets to those impacted by the noise, but that this will not suffice. “We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks,” she said, “I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.”
