Last week the world was deprived of another jewel that once shined bright over the big screen. The entertainment industry is mourning the loss of multi-talented actress, Diana Rigg. She passed away at her home on Thursday at the age of 82.

Diana was an important part of the Game of Thrones family. She played the role of wise and cunning ‘Queen of Thrones’ Lady Olenna Tyrell. Her journey began in 2013 with the introduction of the character in the series, and she made the character likeable in the common households.

Rigg’s presence is being deeply missed by her Game of Throne’s co-stars. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister on the show expressed his sentiments on Twitter.

Dame Diana Rigg . She always raised the bar with her incredible talent, intelligence and wit. An absolute joy and honor to work with. May her soul Rest In Peace https://t.co/BC4annah1H

John Bradley, who played Samwell Tarly on the show tweeted:

Diana Rigg was just wonderful. But you all knew that already. Everybody did. Very sad news. #dianarigg

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin also paid his respects :

I am late to post about this, but I was very saddened by the news of a couple recent deaths. The world of television and film lost a titan with the passing of Dame Diana Rigg. Such an amazing talent.   It was such an honor to have her on GAME OF THRONES as the Queen of Thorns… pic.twitter.com/kD3R3Fl7V9

Writer for the show Bryan Cogman tweeted:

Diana. Words in a tweet can’t possibly express what an incredible honor it was to write for her, work with her on set, and get to know her. Got lots of juicy showbiz stories out of her – everything from Sondheim to George Lazenby to Kermit the Frog… (thread) pic.twitter.com/IiQ5rA1Odi

Mark Gatiss, who played Iron Banker Tycho Nestoris, said,

It was my great joy and privilege to have known Diana Rigg. From three slightly hysterical months at the Old Vic in ‘All About Mother’ to writing The Crimson Horror for Diana and her wonderful daughter Rachael. Flinty, fearless, fabulous. There will never be another. RIP pic.twitter.com/2EGc4MVx0S

Actor Flinn Jones, who played her on-screen grandson Loras Tyrell posted on his story :

Diana was a dazzling actress and a compassionate and kind human being. Her presence was comforting and inspiring for her co-stars, so was the beauty with which she executed her roles. Other than Game of Thrones, she starred in the 1960’s The Avengers, the Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and many more.

We as fans pray that her soul rests in peace. Please feel free to share your feelings with us in the comments below.

Game of Thrones had plenty of social messages hidden in plain sight. Though it may not be too obvious, it was a representation of our own society. According to recent research, the fantasy show is very similar to real-world human interactions. That’s the reason why the show was such a big hit, people could relate to the characters. The series was a big platform to showcase the Domestic Abuse women face behind closed doors. Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), has come forward in support of them.

Emilia posted a picture on her Instagram with a heart symbol drawn on her hand. She captioned, “This is something I care deeply about, and a problem that is everywhere, but behind closed doors.

For far too many home isn’t a safe place for those living with domestic abuse. I want to reach out and connect to anyone reading this who may feel scared in their own homes during this time.

At home should not mean at risk – we support you. #YouAreNotAlone.

If you or anyone you know is at risk of, or experiencing domestic abuse, you can leave your home to seek refuge. The police will respond to your calls and support services remain available.

Call 999 if you are in immediate danger. If you can’t speak and are calling from a mobile, listen to the operator and, when prompted, dial 55 to be connected to the police who will help.

If you suspect a neighbour or someone you know is currently experiencing domestic abuse please do call 999 and let them take the situation forward.”

Even though the year 2020 has ruined so many holidays for us, we can’t let go of the festive mood. Christmas is around the corner, and it’s time for cakes, cookies and presents! Festivals are one of the few occasions that strengthen the bonds of a family. It seems like singer Joe Jonas is already a step ahead, gifting his wife Sophie Turner an early Christmas present. The Game of Thrones star was really happy about it and proudly showed it off on Instagram.

Joe gifted her a T-shirt covered in throwback photos of singer and actress Miley Cyrus. The top is emblazoned with the words ‘Hannah Montana’. It features photos of Cyrus both in character as the Disney icon Hannah, who she played between 2006 and 2011, and as herself after she had shed her Disney image.

“Thanks to the Hubbs of the year for my early Christmas gift,” Turner wrote alongside a photo of herself posing in her new item of clothing.

They welcomed their baby daughter Willa in July this year. Sophie has got a tattoo tribute to her daughter. She has the letter W inked on her wrist below the J she already had for her husband.

Send your best wishes to Sophie and her cute little family in the comments below! Merry Christmas to all of you!
