Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 4 “The Last of the Starks” gave us quite a few big moments, which made the smaller moments easy to miss. In a recent interview with Huffington Post, director of the episode, David Nutter, discussed the small and big moments. Read on!

During the episode, we saw Daenerys beg Jon to keep his parentage a secret. Jon however, refuses to listen to her, and reveals the information to his sisters via Bran, on the condition that they don’t reveal it to anybody else. However, moments later, we see Sansa reveal the information to Tyrion. Nutter discussed Sansa not keeping the secret of Jon’s parentage, saying that she didn’t flat out spill the beans:

“Well, she doesn’t say it blatantly, of course, basically inferred it, so I think that that’s a moment that Tyrion has to put two and two together.”

He also noted that her loyalty lies with the North:

“That’s her No. 1 thing, I think. Keep her family safe and her kingdom whole.”

In the previous episode, we saw Cersei reveal to Euron that she is pregnant, with his child. We have seen Cersei tell Jaime that he is the father before, and in episode 4, we saw Tyrion try and convince Cersei to think about her unborn child. Fans were speculating that this scene would make Euron realize that Cersei was lying to him. Nutter discussed what Euron was thinking during this scene:

“I think Euron, he’s not paying that much attention.”

Nutter said the scene was more about Cersei and Tyrion:

“Tyrion wanted Cersei to realize that she wasn’t a monster at all, that she was really, truly a mother. That was an intense scene. I think any type of Euron intrusion there would’ve weakened the intent of what we were trying to tell.”

When a well-known celebrity makes an appearance in your favourite TV show, it is always a pleasant surprise. The biggest TV show of the past decade, Game of Thrones, witnessed a lot of celebrity cameos. We can’t blame them, the series got so popular and addictive, every single fan wanted to be a part of it.

In an interview with Stereogum, The National frontman Matt Berninger revealed he’s “f***ing p****d” that he and his bandmates were not given a cameo on Game of Thrones.

Berninger revealed his band was on set during the filming of some of the episodes. He said, “The National’s been to the top of the Wall. We were in Belfast. We’ve been to Castle Black. We couldn’t post anything but there are all these great pictures of us at the top of the Wall at Castle Black.”

The indie rock band had recorded songs for the hit HBO series. In 2013, they released a version of the classic Game of Thrones song The Rains of Castamere. They also wrote Turn On Me for an album featuring music inspired by the show.

The frontman couldn’t hold back his frustration when other singers made cameos on the series, including Ed Sheeran, Sigur Ros and members of Coldplay. The singer vented, “You’re right. I’m p****d. I’m f***ing p****d, I’m p****d I never got to be in it. I mean, there are were well-known there and we all have beards and s***.”

Matt also revealed showrunner Dan Weiss was a huge fan of the band. His bandmate, Bryce Dessner, was close friends with Weiss. No wonder the musician is so disappointed. Would you have liked his cameo? Talk to us in the comments below!

The prequel to the Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon, has already brought fans to their toes. HBO has already added to the hype by announcing Paddy Considine as the first confirmed casting for the series. He will play the noble Targaryen King Viserys on the screen. Showrunner Ryan Condal is further causing a stir by explaining how the prequel series will be different from Game of Thrones, yet similar in some aspects.

Fansided’s Corey Smith had an opportunity to talk to Condal and David Mendel over a podcast on 28th October. Being a Game of Thrones fan, he couldn’t resist the urge to ask Ryan about the upcoming prequel series.

Ryan replied, “Without saying anything, because they have a device inside my head that they can just detonate remotely and replace me with someone else. If I say anything, I think any writer, any time you approach a project. You ask,Why are we telling this story?’ And that’s usually a theme question. So the original series has certain themes, and I think Miguel (Sapochnik) and I found together this thematic that runs very much through the Targaryen dynasty that we are very excited about.”

That to me, gives you the sort of all the familiarity of the original series that people love so much while having a very different thing to say about the show,” Condal continued.

We’re really trying to approach this show, and honour all of the things that were great about the original, while not just doing a cover of the song you’ve heard before. It’s trying to be original without completely trying to break the box.”

Hand of the Queen Daenerys, Tyrion Lannister, is one of the most beloved characters on Game of Thrones. Played by the veteran actor Peter Dinklage, the character was famous for his wise and romantic nature, unlike the typical dwarves of fantasy movies. James Hibberd explained how Dinklage avoided being stereotyped as a typical dwarf in his book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon.

The Entertainment Weekly editor revealed Peter had refused to grow a bread for the show initially. Tyrion had a long, thick beard according to George R.R. Martin’s book. However, Peter believed it would earn him a stereotype. He had just played a fantastical dwarf with a long, flowing white beard, in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

This is why Tyrion is clean-shaven in the first few seasons,” Hibberd explained in his book. “After the character was established, he does end up growing his kind of cool, rockstar beard.”

Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff had earlier said Peter was the perfect choice for Tyrion in a New York Times interview. He described Dinklage as ‘being the core of humanity, covered by a shell of sardonic dry wit, is pretty well in keeping with the character.’ He had earlier praised Pedro Pascal for his role as Oberyn Martell.
