Rock band Bastille to make an appearance in Game of Thrones season 7

Game of Thrones has had a spectacular cast over its lifetime, and it doesn’t just include actors who are by profession, but a lot of other celebrities who have had cameos in the series. Now, we know that a lot of these cameos have come from celebrities from the music industry, and from what we’re hearing now, we are getting another one. The famous rock band, Bastille, will be seen in Season 7 of Game of Thrones.

According to a report by Game of Thrones fan site Watchers on the Wall, Bastille has filmed a cameo, where they dressed as wildlings. The most important bit in this news is that the filming took place at the Wolf Hall Quarry set – the icy set for an important winter scene which involves a few stars, and about 300 extras playing wights. We are assuming that Bastille will be a part of this scene. However, there is one small mystery. The filming on this set had finished a while ago, and the report says that Bastille just filmed their cameo, so it is unknown whether this is another scene entirely, or the same one.

A few other bits make this story convincing, like the fact that Dan Smith, the lead singer of the band, said that they will “get to check out the set of Game of Thrones soon, which will be wicked,” which might sound like not as big a deal as we’re making it sound, but we like to speculate. Also, the band has been known to be fans of the series, which means that they probably will be really into the idea of doing a cameo, like many others have, before.

To name a few others who have had cameos in the series, Will Champion of Coldplay was at the Red Wedding, playing a drummer, Snow Patrol‘s Gary Lightbody, was a part of the Bolton crew, singing The Bear and the Maiden Fair, Sigur Rós was at the Purple Wedding, playing The Rains of Castamere, Mastodon took the roles of wildlings made by the Night King at Hardhome, and Of Monsters and Men played musicians at Braavos. Phew, that’s a lot of cameos!

Let’s see if we do get to see Bastille on Game of Thrones. It doesn’t look like they will officially confirm this information before Season 7 drops this summer, so all we can do it wait. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, below!

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!
