Ramsay Bolton actor Iwan Rheon to play Adolf Hitler in a movie

Good villains are as tough to come by as good heroes, and playing either is a difficult task. Heck, playing a villain may even be the tougher job, considering how it involves getting oneself into a mindset that doesn’t come naturally for most. So, when you play a villain well, you might be perceived as an actor who exclusively plays bad guys, and then, get typecast. This is exactly what Iwan Rheon, who played Ramsey Bolton on Game of Thrones, is afraid of, he said, in an interview. Read on!

Iwan stars as Adolf Hitler, in an episode of Urban Myths, which takes a look at historical figures. In an interview with YouTuber Jamie Stangroom, Iwan talked about this, Game of Thrones, and more.

Talking about him having to leave Game of Thrones, he said that he was glad that he was done, and was free after ages. He went on to say :

“…but obviously I’m really sad to leave such an amazing and not be a part of the whole thing anymore…I don’t think the character could have much further. I think it was the right time for him to go.”

Rheon also said that Ramsay’s death was “very just and fitting.” When asked if he could take on Kit Harington in a fight, Rheon replied with a smile, saying “No problem.” While discussing his choice of characters, Iwan also said that his mother can’t really watch his work unless he’s playing a nice character. He talked about his music career, as well. Watch the full interview, below :

Also talking about why he chose to portray Hitler despite being afraid of being typecast, Iwan said :

“You get offered to play Hitler in a half-hour sort of satirical view of him trying to be an artist, you can’t really turn it down.”

Game of Thrones returns with Season 7 in summer, and this time without Ramsey Bolton. We know we’re gonna miss him. Are you? Talk to us in the comments, below!

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

Game of Thrones is over, but HBO has no plans of slowing down. Immediately after Game of Thrones ended, HBO aired a limited series called Chernobyl, which became an instant hit. Now, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe, George R. R. Martin has praised Chernobyl and expressed his approval for the show to win at the Emmy awards. Read on!

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

[NO SPOILERS] Gendry and Tormund playing games in Winterfell after The Battle of Winterfell from gameofthrones

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
