Melisandre, the red priestess on the show have been a crucial part of the show and has been a devout follower of the Lord of Light. She has been an advisor to Stannis for the longest time but now when Stannis is dead even after she made him sacrifice his own daughter for the lord of Light, she is struggling with her faith in the Lord of Light and whether what she sees in the flames is actually something and not only a thing in her mind.

Recently in an interview with Telegraph UK, Carice van Houten spoke about her character as Melisandre and said that, “It’s the moment I have been waiting for as an actor because I have built up this stern, in control, fanatical character, who had this really clear mission. All of a sudden, by sacrificing this poor girl, we now see that her methods didn’t work. This has thrown her completely. It’s the first time that we get a little bit of a look inside the kitchen, as we say in Holland. It’s the first time we see her really shaken and her decorum is dropping a little bit.”

“For me as an actor, that was a really nice moment because so far I haven’t been able to show any emotions. So I really liked seeing the cracks starting to appear in the character. And we start off with that in season six and – this is only “spoiler” I can give away – all of a sudden Melisandre is cold. She’s never cold! But at the beginning of season six, she has this bear skin around her to keep her warm. She is completely confused. She’s messy, she does not look as contained as she always does.”

She further spoke about her role as a strong focused woman and now audience will probably be able to sympathize with her. She said, “To win the audience over, to be charming, that’s going to take a while… But it was nice for me to play something different. The only thing is that this is such a big show and now a lot of people see me as this strong, stern, focused woman, when the roles that I think I am better at are the crazy, damaged, f***ed-up people. So, it’s nice to see a little bit of that in Melisandre, as we do in season six.”

Still hoping that Melisandre will save Snow.

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is known for her liveliness and adventurous behaviour. The actress started a new chapter in life as she turned 34 on Friday, 23rd October. She celebrated her birthday in her own ‘Khaleesi’ way.

The Dragon Queen ruled the skies till now riding on her Dragons on the acclaimed TV show Game of Thrones. Though it was not real and was the result of amazing CGI and VFX work done by the crew, she looked majestic in each of the scenes.

Clarke, who played Queen of the Andals and Breaker of Chains Khaleesi Daenerys, took to the sky once again, this time for real. She jumped off an aeroplane to celebrate her 34th birthday in a spine-chilling way.

Emilia wrote her caption as, “What could match the profound existential terror of another birthday? Jumping out of a goddamn plane is what. #whosaysyoucanonlyflydragons? #freeeeeeeeeefaaaalllliiiinnnggggg #myfacialexpressionstellyouallyouneedtoknow #mymothermyhero #birthdaybluestakeapunch Thank you Hinton Sky Diving for the most exhilarating experience of my life!”

Clarke looked terrified and exhilarated in her post. The mother of the dragons proved once again just how brave she is even off the screen. The bold actress battled the after-effects of her brain surgery in secrecy, way back in 2012 while still shooting for the show. She felt exhausted throughout the second season, but she never gave up.

Feel free to send your best wishes to the highly talented actress in the comments below. Happy birthday Emilia!


The year 2020 has been the Red Wedding for everyone around the world. Looking at the current scenario, stepping out of quarantine seems to be a big risk. People are cautious and suspicious of each other, scared of contamination. Under such dire conditions, normal life sounds like a fantasy. Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and husband Joe Jonas are trying hard to give their new-born daughter a normal life.

The young couple went out for a walk with their daughter Willa in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Turner was seen in a T-shirt and black leggings, while Jonas was rocking the buzzcut he dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month while. They were pushing Willa in a black baby carriage.


Both the high-profile parents were keeping it low-key and were wearing properly secured black face masks. Since becoming parents in July 2020, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been focusing more on their baby and less on sharing details of their private life.

Sophie earlier made headlines with an Instagram post, when she brought a prop from Game of Thrones set back home. She welcomed the wooden Throne of Winterfell at her home, which had an intricately carved dire-wolf on it.

Turner and Jonas are trying their best to be good parents for little Willa. Feel free to express your good wishes for their cute family in the comments below!
