The final season of Game of Thrones was a controversial one. It divided the fanbase into two – one who loved it and the other who hated it passionately. Time after time we see fans and celebrities debating over the issue alike. Even the show’s cast has their own opinion about it. Some, like Nathalie Emmanuel, defended the controversial ending. While others, like her co-star and friend Emilia Clarke, were a bit annoyed. This is evident from her recent interview segment with theSkimm.
Emilia got candid in the interview. She was asked if there was one scene she would like to go back and change on Game of Thrones. She replied, “Right, the bit where I died!”
It seems like Emilia absolutely hated her death scene. Not just her, lots of fans all over the world were highly dissatisfied with the treatment Cersei and Daenerys received. Some didn’t like how Bran ended up on the Iron Throne instead of Jon. There were many who were petitioning for a remake of the final season. Clarke’s statement shows how divided the fanbase and crew was about the show’s finale.
Emilia also rekindled the controversy regarding who put the mysterious coffee cup next to her in the final season of the show. She pointed her fingers at Dan Weiss, one of the showrunners, quite inconspicuously. How would you have changed the final season of Game of Thrones? Talk to us in the comments below!
Dune is one of the most promising sci-fi movies of this year, and if successful we might be looking at one of the best fantasy-based movie series of the decade. It has already garnered a lot of attention due to its amazing star cast, which includes Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa. Momoa is known for his great bonding with co-stars, he has maintained a great friendship with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke. Recently in an interview with Gamesradar, Momoa talked about sharing amicable moments with Dune co-star Timothee Chalamet.
Momoa plays Duncan Idaho – the handsome swordsman from Dune who trains the leading character Paul Atreides, portrayed by Timothée Chalamet in the upcoming movie. He told Gamesradar, “It was exactly like in the film – he’s like a little brother. He’s so intelligent. He’s something else to watch. Tim is such a beautiful actor and considerate. He cares about his craft way more than I do. It’s just impressive to be around people like that.”
“That joke [about muscles in the trailer] came from me. There are these outtakes where I went up to Timmy, and I go, “Look at you, dick and ribs.” Denis comes up and says, “What is this talk about the ribs and his dick? I don’t understand.” I’m like, “Well, it’s funny, because Timmy’s so skinny.” He’s like, “OK. Maybe you can do it in another way?” But Timothée [got me back]. When I hug him he kneed me in the balls so hard! You can see it if you watch in slo-mo.”

Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to ever grace the television screens. The series is easily recognizable as a pop culture icon, whose fandom transcends geological boundaries. The TV show was based on George R. R. Martin’s famous novel series A Song of Fire and Ice, which in turn was heavily inspired by medieval history. This often leads some people into believing that Game of Thrones wasn’t a fantasy story, rather real history itself. And Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington has met a few of them himself.
The conversation arose in an interview with PTI, where Harington was present for the promotion of Amazon’s Modern Love Season 2. He mentioned a Game of Thrones joke in the script that attracted his attention towards the show.
In a scene, Harington’s Michael is seen discussing his love life with his brother Declan, played by a moustachioed Jack Reynor.
During their conversation, Declan asks Michael about Paula and what she does. He replies that she is studying Medievalism to which Declan quips, “Like ‘Game of Thrones’?’, leaving his brother with a puzzled look on his face.
In reality, Harington said he has come across people who believe that Game of Thrones, based on author George R. R. Martin’s book series, is actually history.
“I’ve met people who have said to me, ‘You know, I don’t know much about that ‘Game of Thrones’ stuff. I’ve never been much of a history buff.’
“And I was like, ‘Really? I’m not sure you have to be’,” the actor said.

It is a well-known fact that teenage is the wildest period of everyone’s life. The mood swings, hormonal spikes, crazy attitude often leads one to do stuff they wouldn’t dare as an adult or a child. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke had her ludicrous time too, and she was as adventurous as an average teenager of her time. During one of her drunken activities, she was chased out of Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born.
“When I was 16, me and my friends were a bit drunk and broke into the grounds of Blenheim Palace,” the 34-year-old actress admitted according to a report by The Daily Mail. “And then we found ourselves kind of wandering into the Palace itself. The security guy with the big lights came, and we all ran back to a friend’s house.”
“Next day, we woke up and my friend’s mum was having a cup of tea with a police officer who was like: “What f***ing idiot decided to break into Blenheim Palace?”’
Clarke might have been more welcome at the Palace if she had repeated the stunt today. After all, who doesn’t want to click a picture with Khaleesi herself?
