Stephen Dillane never really understood what was happening in Game of Thrones

Stannis Baratheon, the worst father (I hope Shireen rests in peace) on the planet was nicely put to death by Brienne of Tarth at the end of season 5 and everyone felt that Stannis deserved it. But what did Stannis think about his character? Only Stannis can tell. Stephen Dillane, the actor who played Stannis Baratheon never really understood what was happening on the show or in fact why this show was so popular. Dillane recently admitted that he was kind of clueless about what was happening the entire time and is sort of glad that its over for him.

According to Dillane, the entire show seemed to be sort of blur and confusing. He revealed all these details in an interview with a French Magazine Liberation and said that, “I do not regret having done Game of Thrones, but I have nothing to say. I understood neither the series nor its success when I was attending. The experience was very strange, it passed under my nose. For a role like it to me, I must get interested could, which was not really the case. I was a bit overwhelmed.

This kind of honesty is rarely seen and is much appreciated. You need to be capable of holding your own to admit such kind of things about a show as massive as Game of Thrones. Moreover, Stannis will always be remembered for a lot of things, Battle of Blackwater being one of them.

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

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!
