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!

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Game of Thrones deleted scenes have been pouring out on the internet, now that the full series disc sets are here. We have reported about a couple of them, including one that showed Daenerys get the northern hate. The one we have today, comes from IGN, and it shows a death scene that was skipped from the episode, likely because the character isn’t considered that important. Read on!

Now, the character we’re talking about here is Alys Karstark, and the episode in question is Season 8, Episode 3, “The Long Night”. This deleted scene shows Alys meet her end while trying to protect Bran Stark in the Godswood. Check it out:

Well, it looks like Theon Greyjoy wasn’t the only guy that lost his life trying to look out for Bran Stark, and Alys deserves at least some credit for being one of the many to buy enough time for Arya Stark to swoop in and save the day.

This could’ve easily been kept in the episode. I mean, it’s game of Thrones, and it’s the most important big battle of the show. Surely one more death couldn’t have hurt.

Sophie Turner discusses her final Game of Thrones scene as Sansa Stark

Game of Thrones deleted scenes and special feature types are flying all over the Internet, now that HBO has released the full series disc sets of the show. We have been reporting about many of these, and this one involves Sophie Turner discuss her final scene on the show as Sansa Stark. Read on!

The video was posted to Twitter, and it shows Sophie, dressed as Sansa, discuss her final scene on the show. Take a gander:

Sophie said:

“I think it was just so overwhelming, and I kind of kept reading and re-reading, and I felt a bit numb afterwards because I never thought I would be reading the final scene.”

Now, knowing Game of Thrones, there was always a risk that a major character could just drop dead, and Sophie feared this for Sansa as well. However, as we now know, she made it to the end, and she did really well. Speaking of that, Sophie said:

“It’s very gratifying. It’s great that she ends up being Queen in the North, and I think it’s the place where she really feels like she belongs. And I think it’s a really just, happy, good ending for her, which I was never expecting.”

Well, we know that was one character ending that we absolutely loved. What about you guys? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Daenerys gets the northern hate in deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones series disc sets are here, and we have seen deleted scenes from the show flood the internet as a result of that. Among these, was one showed Daenerys and Jon walk through Winterfell. Read on!

This scene fits into the timeline at the point when Winterfell is preparing for the battle. Jon and Daenerys take a walk through, looking at the preparations, and Daenerys gets some hateful looks from the Northeners. Check it out:

This actually would have fit well in the preparation sequence, and added to the overall unwelcomeness that we saw Daenerys get in the north in Season 8. It wasn’t necessary though, and probably why it was left out. We also saw Daenerys’ unsullied stop for her, but we didn’t really need to be reminded of their loyalty, making the scene even less required.

That being said, they could have just left it in. Not like we would complain about too much of Game of Thrones, right?
