We are living in the 21st century, and with all the technological advancements humanity has witnessed we still can’t guarantee the safety of the other half of the human race. Crimes against women don’t seem to stop, be it on the streets or within the four walls of a room. These blood-boiling incidents show the lack of morality and a genuine sense of respect in the minds of such animalistic ‘gentlemen’. Game of Thrones star Hannah Waddingham, famous for playing Septa Unella on the show, recently revealed she was groped on set while filming the ITV show Benidorm.

Waddingham played Tonya Dyke in the sixth season of the show, which aired back in 2014. “I’d never been groped in my life, but I was groped three times in one week in Benidorm,” she told The Mirror.

Without naming any cast or crew member specifically, Waddingham said, “To get on set, I had to walk through the hotel dressed as Tonya in some non-existent bikini and high heels with blokes gawping at me… or rather groping me.”

“I had to stop myself doing what I’d instinctively do – knock their blocks off – because I was working. A little angel on my shoulder was going, ‘Leave it, Hannah’. But I really wanted to take off my five-inch wedges and whack them.”

A few months ago, Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco accused Marilyn Manson of sexual assault. It seems women are not safe anywhere. How can we curb such instances of violence against women? Tell us in the comments below!

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”- A Shakespearean phrase perfectly sums up the world as a theatre. Two veteran actors from two hugely popular series recently got together to show the world the beauty of theatre. Game of Thrones’ Oliver Ford Davies and The Crown’s Stephen Boxer teamed up on stage at Cambridge Arts Theatre in A Splinter of Ice. Oliver played Maester Cressen in the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones.

He played novelist Graham Greene, while Stephen Boxer played the notorious Soviet spy Kim Philby on stage. The show ran from 20th to 24th July at the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

It is a fascinating historical drama exploring the truth and real friendship between Graham Greene and Kim Philby. Moscow, 1987. As the Cold War begins to thaw, an extraordinary reunion takes place.

As Graham Greene and Kim Philby raise their vodka glasses after 30 years have passed, Brown’s compelling play asks whether Philby betrayed his friend as well as his country, and how much the writer of The Third Man knew about Philby’s secret life.

Oliver Ford Davies won ‘Best Actor’ at the 1990 Olivier Awards for his performance in David Hare’s Racing Demon at the National Theatre.

Last year, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill presented the theatre drama, Sadie. Are you interested in theatre? Talk to us in the comments below!

Art makes you see the world in a different view. However, one artist has dedicated his talent to show the world the hidden landscapes of popular novels. A few years ago, artist Sven Sauer curated Unseen Westeros, an exhibit where accomplished artists took a close look at the fictional world created by George R.R. Martin and painted their own versions of places we didn’t get to see in on HBO’s Game of Thrones, or even in Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books. Some of them include the Shadow Lands, the far country of Yi Ti and dragons over the Shivering Sea. This year the Unseen Worlds exhibit was held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany, which featured 60 new images created by 40 international artists who worked on Game of Thrones, Avatar, Star Trek, X-Men, The Avengers and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Los Siete Reinos has shared some images from the event, and they look spectacular.

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is once again back on track, as promised by HBO after the recent positive coronavirus case. The production was hit with a jolt on Monday when a crew and a cast member tested positive for the contagious virus. According to Deadline, the UK shoot was paused for two days after a positive case in zone A was reported, which includes cast and crew. Now Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that filming on HBO’s upcoming fantasy series House of the Dragon resumed on Wednesday as expected after a brief production shutdown.

The production member and the actor have been isolated and close contacts are required to quarantine. Production began according to the schedule on Wednesday. It is not known yet as to who were the ones who were tested positive for the virus.

The news dealt a minor blow to the expectations of the fans who were expecting the show to arrive early in 2022. The progress on the Game of Thrones prequel was going on smoothly until now, and was progressing really quick. Leaked pictures from all over the internet hinted HBO is taking great strides in this direction, and they are leaving no stones unturned to make this show a great hit. Hopefully, they’ll be able to make the dragons fly again and get the production up to speed in no time.

We wish a speedy recovery to the cast and the crew and hopefully, they’ll be back on track and make up for the lost time. Send your good wishes in the comments below!
