Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail talks about how much he loved Game of Thrones season 6

Game of Thrones is in the latter half of it’s runtime, and as seekers of fandoms, we have already started to latch our souls onto some of the newer shows which we can rely on to make us feel miserable for the next few years. One of such shows, without doubt, is Mr. Robot. The creator of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail, talked about how much he loved Season 6 of Game of Thrones, and more, in an interview.

Esmail was on The Watch podcast when he discussed Season 6, and boy, did he sound like a total fanboy. Read on!

Talking about how Season 6 held a contrast against Season 5 :

“The music — everything was on point. And you know, the one thing that I will say, because this is the thing about Game of Thrones that’s amazing to me … is it’s one story that they’re telling over these several different chapters, or however you want to describe them. So for example … [Season] 5 got a lot of shit, right? … [It was] too slow, what the hell is going on, blah blah blah. But then it all pays off in this season. You couldn’t have gotten away with Cersei [taking] down the Sparrows and the “Battle of the Bastards” [without Season 5]. That emotional impact wouldn’t have worked without Season 5. You need that season of buildup to get to this season.”

Talking about how HBO isn’t afraid to experiment with Game of Thrones :

“The weird thing about Game of Thrones is that they don’t have to experiment with filmmaking. They don’t have to come up with that crazy musical score in the season finale when they blow up that building. They’ve got me [hooked] already and then they do that on top of it. Then they have crazy filmmaking. [Miguel Sapochnik], who I think did “Battle of the Bastards” and the finale, [was great]. And that one great long take in the middle of “Battle of the Bastards,” I mean, that shit’s better than anything I watch in the movie theater.”

We could not agree more.

Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa set to reunite on The Graham Norton Show

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

Emilia is currently in the middle of promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, while Momoa is promoting his upcoming Apple TV+ series See. The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion. The show will also have Regina King, there to promote her upcoming HBO series Watchmen, and comedian Ross Noble, with Camila Cabello slated to be the performer.

The episode will air on Friday, October at 10.35pm on BBC One, for the British fans of the show. Are you excited to watch the two unite on screen after this long? We sure are. Talk to us in the comments, below!

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Maisie Williams says it was “horrible” to look like a boy to play Arya Stark

Game of Thrones has had a lot of strong female characters, but it would be inaccurate to say that it celebrates femininity. One example is Arya Stark, who is seen as a boyish character for most of the show, and as an extension, we all ended up seeing Maisie Williams the same way. In a recent interview, she discussed what it was like to have to hide her feminine side for the role, calling the experience “horrible.” Read on!

In a recent interview with Vogue, Maisie discussed coming of age in the spotlight, and more. Starting off, she talked about “maturing” about two seasons into the production of the show:

“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly.”

She continued:

“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”

The only glimpse we got of Arya Stark’s femininity came in the last season of the show, with her and Gendry sharing what was the first and only romantic moment for Arya throughout the show. Maisie also said that she felt ashamed to be a girl for a while, and is enjoying her feminine side a lot more now.

Well, it’s safe to say that the fans love this side of Maisie as well. What do you feel? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn’t on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

Fans wonder why Isaac Hempstead Wright wasn't on stage during Game of Thrones tribute at the Emmys

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards were recently held, and while Game of Thrones didn’t do as well as usual, it was the last Emmy appearance for the show. The show walked away with the Outstanding Drama Emmy, and also had a heartfelt tribute with some of the cast members.

What was surprising, however, was that the winner of the Game of Thrones (or the closest we got to it), Issac Hempstead-Wright, who played Bran Stark, was surprisingly absent from the tribute, but rather in the audience. This perplexed many of the fans:

Well, the logic seems to be that only the nominated actors were on the stage for the tribute, which isn’t a bad thing. However, being that it was the show’s last year at the site, it would’ve been better to have the entire cast on the stage.

What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, blow down below!
