Game of Thrones had some of the best graphic sceneries in all of television history, shot at a variety of locations. Though the scenes may look beautiful on camera, they were not at all easy to shoot, often having filmed at the most arduous of places. It is common for actors to have a favourite moment from their projects they have worked on, Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington’s memorable scene is a bit peculiar. But we cannot blame him, everyone feels less stressed when they are relieved!
In a recent interview with Sirius XM, the actor famous for playing Jon Snow talked about his sweet memories from the show. He revealed, “I remember shooting up on this incredible glacier in Iceland, and I went off to take a pee, just in… somewhere in the wilds of Iceland. And I just looked out over this glacier and I thought, ‘God, I got the best job in the world.’ And that always sticks out to me because if I’m ever feeling grumpy about my lot, which, believe me, I can do amazingly, I think of that. And I think, ‘Now you’ve got a pretty special job.’”
He continued, “Part of the journey since it finished was just becoming proud of that show, you know, not running away from it and not running away from what it was and who I played in it, but just owning it and being proud of everything about it really.”
Though Harington went through a lot of stress while filming, he did seem to enjoy these moments. What is your favourite scene from Game of Thrones? Tell us in the comments below!
The huge popularity of Game of Thrones turned it into a pop culture icon. There’s hardly anyone who doesn’t know of the fantasy series, and we find it being referenced by many famous people occasionally. From politics to sports, Game of Thrones has made its impact. Recently, Junior Firpo, an Ex-Barcelona footballer, delivered a hilarious comparison between Leeds United teammate Pascal Struijk and a famous Game of Thrones character.
Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister on the show, is a recognised Leeds supporter. However, Firpo believes he’s found another connection between the club and the HBO series.
Firpo compared 21-year-old Leeds defender Struijk to fictional character Khal Drogo from the popular TV show Game of Thrones. American actor Jason Momoa is the supposed lookalike.
Firpo is certainly getting straight into the dressing room banter after his summer transfer. He responded to Struijk on Instagram, who scored in a pre-season 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday.
It looks like 24-year-old Firpo is integrating into the Leeds group very quickly. One of the greatest strengths in the last few years at Elland Road is the togetherness of Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.
A few weeks ago, MMA fighter Kayla Harrison compared the fight ring to the Game of Thrones. Have you heard of similar comparisons? Tell us in the comments below!
Humility is a virtue possessed by few. Even though Game of Thrones reached great heights, the show’s cast was always humble to their roots. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on the show, has to be one of the most down-to-earth celebrities among them. His family went broke after his exit in season 1, but he never lost his cool. The actor is putting a smile across millions of faces once again as the superhero Aquaman. He recently shared a story from his early Hollywood days in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
After admitting most of his stories from that period of his life are not ones he could share on television, Momoa landed on an anecdote involving Northern Irish actor, Liam Neeson.
“I went to my first nice restaurant and I saw Liam Neeson,” Momoa recalled. “And fangirled out. I had not met anyone famous yet. I watched Rob Roy growing up, and I was really excited. And I just kind of stared at him and I would just smile. I creeped him out. He got up, left and moved to a few tables over.”
Then he recalled a similar experience about his chance meeting with Al Pacino.
“I was on Melrose [Avenue] and I look in a window, me and my buddy, and sure enough, I see Al Pacino,” he said. “And I just stopped dead in my tracks and I spent the next half-hour just walking in front of the window — to the point where he is just looking at us — and Al Pacino just flips us off and starts laughing. I felt really silly, but I get starstruck really easily.”
