Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for release in 2022. It is a well-known fact it wasn’t the only series HBO was planning to develop back in 2019. There were a number of prequel series, of which House of The Dragon got the chance to move forward to production. Another prequel, rumoured to have been named Blood Moon, was scrapped. The fans were disheartened, and so was the cast. The show’s lead, Naomi Watts, was in tears. One of the crew members, Tom Canton recently posted an image of cast member Naomi Watts in full costume working on the show from back in 2019.

Blood Moon, which was to be set well over one thousand years before the mother series. There is no Iron Throne. There are no dragons. Westeros is a very different place.

Unfortunately, HBO cancelled Blood Moon after showrunner Jane Goldman and her team made a pilot, but we’re still getting little bits and pieces of what we missed here and there.

We never learned the name Watts’ character, but we knew she was “a charismatic socialite with a dark secret.” The show had a full ensemble cast that included Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Jamie Campbell Bower, Denise Gough and many more. We also know that the Children of the Forest would have played a big part on the show.

The Red Wedding year 2020 was a difficult year for everyone across the globe. The world is still battling the consequences of the aftermath. The COVID-19 pandemic was one of the worst scares of the Long Night we faced last year. Health workers all over the world are keeping their life on the line trying to keep people safe. These COVID-warriors are working day and night to prevent the further spread of the virus. Game of Thrones stars like Kristofer Hivju beat the infection with the help of these warriors. The Duchess of Cambridge and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke have come together to thank the nurses for their incredible services.

The Nursing Now campaign was launched three years ago. Emilia Clarke is an ambassador and the Duchess of Cambridge a patron of the campaign. It was launched to better connect nurses from different countries in the first-ever global social movement of its kind for nursing.

Clarke said on the campaign’s website that she was “looking forward to the Nursing Now Global Footprints event”.

I can’t wait to hear from the many Nursing Now groups and Nightingale Challenge programmes,” she said.

In a video released by Kensington Palace, the duchess said, “Although we cannot be together at this closing of this Nursing Now campaign, I wanted to say a huge congratulations for the incredible work you have done over the last three years.”

“COVID-19 has highlight the vital role that nurses provide. We all rely on and it’s made all the more extraordinary when we consider the huge sacrifices and personal demands that have been placed on all of you by the pandemic.”

Let’s take a moment to thank these COVID warriors and send your well wishes in the comments below!
