After facing backlash Sophie Turner clarifies she did not spoil Game of Thrones for all her friends

Chill out folks, not all of Sophie Turner’s friends know what happens in the Game of Thrones finale. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Sansa Stark actor has cleared the air about reports that she spoiled the finale for several of her friends. Turner assures that’s it’s just two people, including her fiance Joe Jonas, and both of them are quite capable of keeping the secret.

Around January reports started circulating that she has revealed the top-secret finale to multiple people. Turner was quoted as saying,

“I’m so bad at keeping secrets, I don’t think people tell me things anymore because they know that I can’t keep them. I’ve already told the ending of Game of Thrones to a few people.”

This statement did not sit well with a section of Game Of Thrones fans. People accused her of sloppiness, particularly when the show makers are going to such lengths to keep it all secret. Turner says she found out about the backlash from news headlines on Twitter. She told EW,

 “The truth is I’ve only told two people. It’s not that many. To be honest, I don’t read many of the mentions on Twitter because there’s normally quite a bit of hate. Everything I say will always have some negative reactions so I’m not surprised.”

Turner with fiance Joe Jonas in a recent game. Jonas is one of the people who Turner has told about the finale.

Turner is likely referring to the negative sentiments associated with her character Sansa, and her on-screen disagreements with fan-favourite Jon Snow in Season 7 may have fueled that. While she shrugs off the negativity, she is aware of the unfairness of it.

Jon Snow actor Kit Harington has also admitted to revealing spoilers to his wife Rose Leslie in the recent past, but received no backlash for it (even that story was misinterpreted at first). The irony is not lost on Turner, who observes,

“The people love Kit Harington, he can do no wrong. He’s the people’s prince!”

Not fair, fans!

Looking for a few more spoilers on how Game of Thrones Season 8 finally plays out? Well, now you have a sturdy chance to know at least one character’s final arc. All you have to do is, somehow get access to Sophie Turner’s flat. That’s it, easy-peasy!

In a recent interview with Rolling Stones, the actor revealed that she has the storyboard of her last scene as Sansa Stark framed onto the wall of her new flat that she now shares with her fiance Joe Jonas. The storyboard was a present from showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss on her last day of filming Game of Thrones.

Turner says it was their favourite Sansa scene in the show, and also the very last scene of Sansa’s story in it. Already emotional because she was about to leave for good, Turner says this sweet gesture on their part moved her to tears.

Turner has been in the news before for being open-handed with Game Of Thrones secrets. Given the amount of insane security that the makers have ensured for the final season, is it wise to hang something as significant as Sansa’s final scene up on the wall? Turner is not perturbed, however. She says nobody has yet realized its significance.

This likely means the storyboard does not give away anything major. But what’s the harm in speculating? For one thing, it does not seem too disturbing or violent, because that surely have attracted attention, right? We know its Sansa’s last scene, we know it’s not violent – does that mean Sansa survives?

It does seem like a strong possibility. But who knows? This is Game of Thrones after all. For now, our best bet seems just to wait for April 14.

Game of Thrones is the world’s most popular fantasy TV series. We have seen the show pioneer the genre, as well as drive the television medium to what it is today. Needless to say, everybody else is running around, trying to replicate HBO‘s success. Just take Amazon’s upcoming Lord of The Rings series. However, there’s some bad news for Game of Thrones in all of this – there’s a possibility that we might not get to see our favourite Game Of Thrones stars in some of the upcoming fantasy shows.

Speaking at MCM Comic-Con Birmingham, Game of Thrones actor Ian Beattie (Ser Meryn Trant) said that Game of Thrones actors are banned from auditioning for a certain upcoming fantasy show, which is based on a video game. You might remember Beattie, who had quite a remarkable exit from Game of Thrones:

Beattie said:

“It’s quite unusual because there was another show, that I’d rather not name if you don’t mind, which was auditioning. It’s based on a video game and I can’t remember if Amazon or Netflix were doing it. But at the bottom of the casting call: ‘No Game of Thrones actors’.”

There are rumors that say that Beattie is speaking about the upcoming The Witcher TV series, which is set to star Henry Cavill.

He continued:

“And that’s not the first time that’s happened. And I’m thinking, there’s some pretty bloody good actors in Game of Thrones. What the heck? But they did not want any form of brand recognition. That’s to do with the identity of the show. This is obviously a show that sees itself as a Game of Thrones-type show.”

Beattie makes a good point. If you’re a big production house that wants to create a competitor to such a big franchise, you obviously don’t want to make it too similar. With Game of Thrones, the actors are very recognizable by the fan base, and as a series in the same domain with chances of sharing the fan base, this kind of a decision seems smart. Not so good for Game of Thrones actors looking for their next break, though. Beattie threw some shade on the project on his way out:

“It isn’t out yet, it’s being made I think as we speak. So they obviously don’t want any crossover whatsoever, which is fair enough. I won’t be watching it, but OK.”

What do you think about the whole thing? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones has been HBO’s poster child for nearly a decade now. Game of Thrones came in at a time when the television medium was at a decline. HBO managed to make the bold decision of bringing it to TV, and boy did it pay off. As we move towards the end of the show, HBO is already gearing up for a follow up, with multiple prequels for the show already in development. Former HBO CEO Richard Plepler recently said that these are “something special.”

Plepler was the one who greenlit Game of Thrones. After the recent buyout of HBO by AT&T, Plepler decided it was time to leave the company, and is no longer at HBO. On his way out, however, Plepler is still proud of Game of Thrones and the direction it is taking, moving forward.

A recent piece that Variety did on Kit Harington mentions Plepler’s comments on the prequels. Plepler said that the idea behind the prequels is:

“…something special. We weren’t just trying to re-engineer the genes of what ‘Game of Thrones’ was, but we had a fresh, exciting perspective that didn’t let the franchise go away.”

Plepler also discussed the show’s high point, where the public curiosity surrounding Jon Snow‘s death was at a record high. even the then President of the United States, Barack Obama, a well known fan of the show, asked Plepler about whether Jon was really dead. Plepler apparently replied with:

“Mr. President, even your security clearance isn’t high enough to give you the answer to that.”

Well, we hope Plepler has a fruitful future outside of HBO. As someone who made the decision to give us this beautiful show, he totally deserves it. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Turns out The Simpsons predicted the fate of King's Landing two years ago

Published

By

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5, “The Bells” embraced a big character arc for one of its biggest characters. Daenerys Targaryen became the Mad Queen, and unleashed fury on Cersei Lannister and her capital, King’s Landing. It turns out that The Simpsons actually predicted it a while ago. Read on.

In “The Bells” we saw Daenerys spare no mercy for the arguably morally dirty city of King’s Landing. Even after the city surrendered, and the bells were rung, Daenerys went on a rampage to burn them all. Turns out, the loved animated sitcom, which is also famous for predicting just all kinds of events, also predicted the fate of King’s Landing, back in 2017.

In the first episode of The Simpsons Season 29, which was titled The Serfsons, we saw The Simpsons set in an alternate reality that was pretty much a parody of Game of Thrones. There are White Walkers, magic necklaces, and of course, dragons. The trope is that in the end, we see the Simpsons look, as the dragon burns the city to the ground. Very much like Drogon razed King’s Landing to the ground.

Check out the clips in this video montage:

The teaser trailer to Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is finally here! As we reported earlier, the teaser trailer was supposed to drop within the next two weeks, and hence the prediction checks out. The full trailer might be here right before Christmas, but for the moment let’s enjoy the epicness of the teaser trailer launched by HBO Max earlier this week.

The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch!

It’s amazing how fans are so excited about the upcoming prequel, despite being divided over the controversial ending to Game of Thrones. Hopefully, House of The Dragon will live up to the hype, and fans will get to watch an amazing series that’ll be even better than the original one.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew were spotted in Aldershot, and locals are leaking out quite a few details about the set.

In the most recent leaks from the set in Aldershot, fans have spotted a carriage bearing the sigil of House Strong. House Strong was already confirmed by HBO earlier last month when HBO released information about new additions to the cast, which included Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong played by Ryan Corr, Larys Strong played by Matthew Needham, and Lord Lyonel Strong played by Gavin Spokes.

A few months ago, Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco filed a federal lawsuit against Marilyn Manson accusing him of rape and other acts of sexual violence. Marilyn Manson’s lawyers have denied all claims and said all the stories were forged by the actress. Recently, the court has denied the dismissal request put forward by Manson’s lawyers, meaning Bianco can move forward with the case.

Judge Fernando L. Aenlle-Rocha of the U.S. District Court of California denied Manson’s attempt to have Bianco’s claims dismissed based on the statute of limitations, court documents revealed Thursday. Manson has 14 days to respond to each of Bianco’s claims.

esme-bianco-8305862

A reasonable jury could find that the effects of Warner’s alleged unconscionable acts, including the perceived threat to Plaintiff’s safety, immigration status, and career, persisted years after her last contact with Warner,” Aenlle-Rocha wrote in his court address.

Bianco first came forward on Feb. 10, as more than a dozen other women also made allegations against Manson. The lawsuit lays out Bianco’s allegations in similarly shocking detail. She alleges that Manson — whose legal name is Brian Warner — raped her in May 2011. Bianco also alleges that he repeatedly used drugs, force and threats to coerce her into other sexual acts. She accuses him of spanking, biting, cutting and whipping her without her consent during sex acts.

New House of The Dragon leaks might be showing the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s first wife

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, another rather unknown member of the House of The Dragon cast came into the limelight, via a leaked picture from the Aldershot set posted by Portal House of The Dragon Brasil.

One of the most common theories about the cast member in question is that she’s playing Prince Daemon Targaryen’s first wife Rhea Royce. This is how the character’s wiki describes her:

In 97 AC, Queen Alysanne Targaryen wed her grandson, Prince Daemon Targaryen, to Lady Rhea Royce, the heir to Runestone. Although the marriage was a fine, rich match, the marriage was not a success. Daemon found the Vale of Arryn little to his liking and grew bored. He soon developed a dislike for his wife, holding no love or affection toward Rhea, referring to her as his bronze bitch, a mocking reference to the ancient armour of the Royces. Rhea likewise had no love for Daemon, and they were soon estranged.”

Well, the armour certainly checks out, but other details about the character are currently under wraps. Who do you think the character from the recent leaks is? Tell us in the comments below!

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans. Recently, a few more pictures from the production set were leaked. And we finally have a first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled Valyrian Steel sword the Dark Sister.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his belt buckle while carrying his sword behind him.

Another image shows him in what looks like a melancholy state, kneeling in the sea with his shoulders hunched and his head bowed down as his sword stands upright in the sand.

The last of the photos show him lying on the sand, while Dark Sister is still stuck in the sand while Matt talks to a crew member.

This might be a soul-searching moment for Daemon Targaryen, since no other cast members are seen around him as he takes a stroll along the beach.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Fans have been wondering for a while about some of the key characters that have not been announced yet. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, depicting a scene being filmed involving a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon.

leanor-rhaenyra-7596856

We already know actress Milly Alcock is playing the younger version of Rhaenyra, as it was announced officially a while ago. However, this is the first time anyone has ever seen Laenor Velaryon in action, played by actor Theo Nate. Nate is a budding actor whose acting credits include Time (2021), a show starring Sean Bean.

laenor-rhaenyra-1-714x1024-6645642

Rhaenyra and Laenor were married at a young age, so the leaked pictures that have been circulating on the internet must be from around that time. Also, Laenor dies young in the books, after the couple have their children. So maybe Rhaenyra is seeing him off for the last time at the beach?

It has recently been confirmed that the production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has returned to Cornwall. Several photos of the shoot were leaked recently, which included what looked like a huge huge battle sequence as well as the first look at Rhaenys Velaryon, Laenor Velaryon and a young Rhaenyra Targaryen. Fans of the fantasy epic might be psyched, but the neighbours to the show’s production site not so much.

A holiday park in Cornwall has complained that nearby filming for the Game Of Thrones spin-off House Of The Dragon has driven away their guests. The owners of The Meadow Holiday Park, who are neighbours to the show’s production site, have now said that they have lost business on account of the noise from production, which took place between 5 am and 10 pm.

Every time the National Trust rent out their car park for a lot of money we get disturbed,” owner Krys Humphrey explained to Cornwall Live. “The car park is quite big and they could easily put the generators and lorries on the far side of the car park which would make things better.”

She continued, “They are located next to the riverbank which is just a couple of metres from our holiday homes. We have asked them to move the generators but they say they can’t. The National Trust won’t reply to anything.”

Humphrey added that the House of The Dragon production team has offered to distribute gift baskets to those impacted by the noise, but that this will not suffice. “We have been told that it could continue for another three weeks,” she said, “I have some guests booked in who have a baby and others with a lady who is 94. It’s not fair.”

Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive, covering a lot more ground than previous leaks, as reported by Cornwall Live.

The large scale filming and the shots that were being prepared looked as if they were preparing for a big battle sequence. Two boats followed by lines of smoke set the backdrop at Holywell Bay near Newquay. Well, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and fans can hope it is from the dragons we are so excited to see in the Game of Thrones prequel.

Marshals wearing high-vis jackets and facemasks lead cast members across the desert-like sands at Holywell Bay. Not much can be seen considering the distance, but the actors wearing turbans and yellowish attire seem to be from Dorne. There are also some Targaryen soldiers on the set, possibly from Rhaenyra’s section.

An unidentified Targaryen soldier was also seen gazing at the sea in a scene being shot on what appears to be a hilltop, possibly trying to encompass the scale of destruction of the battle. There are also some props resembling shipwrecks, that also point towards the theory.
