Generally the notion that goes around (and the show has done quite a bit to prove it true) is that game of thrones is different in the show than in the book. This is the reason why everyone who has read the books and who hasn’t, keep making speculations about what will happen next, because in the show things never go as planned. The showrunners keep everyone hooked to their chairs and keep throwing surprises at them.
But this time, thankfully, it’s the showrunners who themselves have said that there is nothing to be worried about since the people who have read the books will not be disappointed. David Benioff recently told EW that, “People are talking about whether the books are going to be spoiled – and it’s really not true. So much of what we’re doing diverges from the books at this point. And while there are certain key elements that will be the same, we’re not going to talk so much about that – and I don’t think George is either. People are going to be very surprised when they read the books after the show. They’re quite divergent in so many respects for the remainder of the show.”
It is also believed that though in the beginning show was supposed to keep a pace with the book but now both the shows and the books are on different paths which can submerge or not.
Weiss recently said that, “What makes the books so great is that George doesn’t make meticulous blueprints for every beat of this story and then fill in the blanks dutifully going from A to B to C, fleshing out an outline. At a certain point, we realized we were going to outpace the books and we kind of chose to see it as a great thing on both sides – there’s this amazing world George has created and now there are two different versions, and there’s no reason we can see why you can’t be thrilled and surprised and dismayed by both of these different versions of this world.”
Mixed signals, but for season 6, book readers will have an advantage over the non-readers
Game of Thrones reached it’s conclusion more than a year ago. Many of the show’s stars have moved on to new projects. Some are trying their hands in theatre, like Emilia Clarke and Indira Varma. Some are busy filming, like Iain Glenn and Kit Harington. While there are others who have their own production houses to deal with. Like Lena Headey, who played the Lion Queen Cersei Lannister on the show.
Peephole Production has struck a deal with Platform One Media. The production company is run by Game of Thrones star Lena Headey. The Boat Rocker company will work with the actor to develop scripted and unscripted TV and digital projects. Headey will executive produce on all projects under the deal with Platform One Media.
Peephole Productions co-produced Headey’s BAFTA-nominated short The Trap. They will produce the feature-length version in 2021.
Headey has also recently joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming animated show New-Gen. She will voice Thea, the wife of Dr Gabriel (Luke Wilson). The show is a futuristic sci-fi fantasy involving kids being infected with nanotechnology, superhuman powers, robotic insects, and time travel.

The year 2020 has been the year of Game of Thrones babies. Even though the year has been the Red Wedding for people around the world, these babies bring hope. Some like Sophie Turner and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has already welcomed their babies. While some like Kit Harington are expecting theirs.
Sophie welcomed daughter Willa with husband Joe Jonas back in July. The actress who played Queen in the North Sansa Stark got a tattoo as a tribute to her daughter. Turner posted a picture of her T-shirt on Instagram. Fans spotted a new tattoo on her wrist which said ‘W’, Willa’s initial. Sophie already had a ‘J’ etched on her wrist for her husband. She got it in February 2018, with Joe getting an ‘S’ in the same spot.
The 24-year-old actress has various Game of Thrones related tattoos as well. She has an etching of the Direwolf sigil of House Stark on her arm, with the writing ‘The pack survives’. Turner and her best friend Maisie Williams have a matching ‘07.08.09’ inking on their arms. The date marks the day they found out they’d been cast on the show.

Life is a strange journey. No one knows what might happen in near future. We often see people throw away their precious lives over trivial matters. While there are others who are struggling to stay alive, fighting back no matter what. Such people are an inspiration. Jason Momoa, famous for his amazing roles as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones and the hero Aquaman, acknowledged one such young warrior.

A post shared by Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies)
A little boy named Danny Sheehan from Marshfield came to Momoa’s notice after a video of him went viral. Danny is battling cancer who is a big fan of the superhero Aquaman. The video showed him yell in excitement after being gifted an action figure of Aquaman. Jason surprised the young fan with a video call.
The clip was also shared by Momoa along with his adorable chat with the kid. Danny told Momoa that he loved dolphins but that he has never seen one. “That needed to be rectified,” replied Momoa.
Jason said, “I’ve been riding on dolphins and it’s super fun, we should try that sometime.” The actor burst into laughter when the kid showed him the Aquaman action figure. He thanked the people for bringing the little boy’s story to his notice. He also tagged Warner Bros. Pictures to get the boy the Aquaman’s Trident. Momoa also urged his followers to help raise funds for the kid through a GoFundMe page set up by his family.
Jason is one of the most down-to-earth celebrity. He recently revealed how he went broke after his Game of Thrones exit. How do you feel about Jason Momoa’s gesture? Tell us in the comments below!
