Exclusive new photos of the gigantic Game of Thrones castle set and siege engine in Belfast




Over the last week, we have come across photos of a new Game Of Thrones set that is being built next to the Painthall Studios in Belfast and everyone is curious to know more about the humongous set for season 8. Looking at the photos, it seems like a giant castle set is being erected in Belfast and it’s interesting to note that there’s also a massive Trebuchet near the set!


For now, we have no idea which scenes are going to be filmed over here but we are certain that it will be a big action scene, taking into consideration the massive castle set and the giant Trebuchet.

Now, one of our readers has sent us latest pictures from the sets and it also contains closeup pictures of the giant trebuchet!

In addition to this, our source has also mentioned that filming has been going on at Wolf Hill Quarry, which was used to film the epic Ice Lake Battle in season 7. The filming has been going on since last week and apparently the crew has been filming even at night but we don’t have much information about what’s happening over there as people are not allowed to go near it.

We will keep on sharing more information and as when we come across it.

Game of Thrones’ star attraction is the Mother of Dragons, also known as Daenerys Targaryen, and Emilia Clarke, in our realm. As the show draws to an end, the very one that made her name, every fan is looking forward to how it ends for Emilia, and what’s beyond it. She recently gave a nice big interview as the covergirl for the December/January issue of Harper’s BAZAAR magazine, where she discussed quite a lot of things. Let’s get into it!

The issue will hit the stands November 28th. Check out the cover, below :

Speaking of where she comes from, Emilia said :

“It’s this epic story: My grandmother was colonial Indian, and it was a big old family secret because her mum had an affair with someone in India. She would wear makeup to make her skin look white. She loved India more than she loved England. Fuck, yeah. I love that part of me—I’m like one-eighth Indian.”

Apparently Esquire’s sexiest woman alive doesn’t quite believe in the concept of ‘the one’ :

“There is ‘the one’ for particular parts of your life—you change as you get older. So when I was in my teens, there was ‘the one’ for my teens, for sure, and then, you know, there’s ‘the one’ for the next time of your life. There’s this Buddhist philosophy that says you can only really understand yourself through your interactions with other people

I think in the early days I second-guessed everyone. I mean, I do that in life anyway, but especially with fame and becoming successful, and strangers knowing you more than your circle of friends, I would worry about what people thought of me. Then you get to a point where you’re like, ‘You know what? I’m okay.’”

She also spoke about how the talk about nudity on Game of Thrones annoys her :

“I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah, all the porn sites went down when Game of Thrones came back on.’ I’m like, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale?’ I fucking love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn’t handle not seeing it. That is all sex and nudity. There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce.

People fuck for pleasure—it’s part of life.”

Here are some of the pictures from Harper’s Bazaar interview.


Of the many characters that make Game of Thrones what it is, there is one that is held to be the key to the whole thing by many a fans, and that is because the character has an air of mystery to it. We are of course speaking of Bran Stark, who is now the Three-Eyed Raven, and all deep. We have seen the character undergo transformation like no other on the show, and the character is at a point right now where he could be holding the key to defeating the Army of the Dead. In a recent interview, Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark, revealed his thoughts on how the Bran Stark character arc could come full circle. Read on!

Issac recently spoke to TIME, and it seems he has a new theory, and it’s not that same old theory which says that Bran Stark is actually the Night King, although we won’t be giving up on it just yet. Issac explained his alternate theory :

“I like the idea that it’s actually a full circle and Bran becomes the Three-Eyed Raven that was in his dreams when he was younger. I like the idea that it’s a deterministic, destiny driven thing where the old wise man went back in time as the Three-Eyed Raven to tell the young Bran to go north to the cave and it’s a paradox.”

Now, this isn’t really that far fetched, definitely lesser than the Night King theory. There have been things said that can be taken as clues. For example, this famous dialogue : “The past is already written. The ink is dry.” This is an indicator that Bran can’t really change anything, but can just become what he is supposed to become. There is a good chance he actually goes back to help himself become the Three-Eyed Raven. The Three-Eyed Raven even says to him as a farewell : “The time has come…for you to become me.” Could be yet another clue.

Issac also expressed his love for fan theories :

“My favorite fan interactions are always when someone has something to say about the show or some kind of theory, because I’m a big fan of the show as well. I think I speak for the whole cast when I say that we all love this television series as much as everyone else does. So when someone comes up to me and gives me a theory or asks me my opinion on something, I love being able to talk about that.
