Game of Thrones was a beautiful and memorable experience for both the crew and the fans alike. For some, it was the best time of their lives. There are many behind-the-screen secrets that fans are unaware of. Some of them are really fun. Game of Thrones extras know a lot about them, however, there’s one who’s basically a Game of Thrones encyclopedia. Andrew McClay’s vast amount of knowledge rivals that of Varys and Littlefinger. And he has some of the most interesting stories to tell.

Andrew revealed lots of secrets to the Irish Mirror in a recent interview. He was thrilled to see Stephen Dillane (Stannis) and Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder) meticulously rehearsing a scene, getting things right to a tee. On one occasion, Iain Glen entertained a bunch of extras at Wolf Hill Quarry by shouting ‘Khaleessssssssi‘ at the top of his lungs.

He also revealed Rory McCann (The Hound) has a history of looking after chickens in real life as well. He was dumbfounded when Bella Ramsay (Lyanna Mormont) was the only actor to never stumble over her lines during the famous ‘King in the North’ scene.

Andrew McClay got to witness his favourite novel come to life, being a part of it. He considers himself one of the luckiest people who had the chance to live their dreams.

The Iron Anniversary month is coming to an end. Fans relived their favourite moments from the fantasy epic during the Marathrone held during the celebrations. A decade of Game of Thrones brought back sweet memories from behind the screen, and several cast members were happy to share. One of the show’s extras, Andrew McClay, played a number of soldiers throughout the series. He shared firsthand accounts of various funny moments that happened on set, one of them involving actor Pilou Asbaek.

Pilou Asbaek is best known for playing Euron Greyjoy on Game of Thrones. McClay recalled a funny incident about him in an interview with the Irish Mirror, “There was another great moment when we arrived at the Linen Mill Studios in Down. We were shooting inside the studio on the boat. It was the big naval battle sequence between Yara, Theon and Euron. I arrive and see Pilou (Euron Greyjoy) standing up at the front of the boat and he’s screaming for about 30 seconds before we even hear the word ‘action!’

We were all watching him and he’s just up there going crazy! Then when you see him walking around the studio in normal clothes, he’s still a wild man but he’s got a handshake and a smile for everyone. He’s just a man that loves having fun and he’s such a lovely guy.”

We’ve all had childhood heroes who we idolized and wanted to be like them. We know that Game of Thrones alum Sophie Turner is a big fan of Miley Cyrus’ TV show, Hannah Montana. She dubbed Joe ‘hubbs of the year’ when he gave her a Hannah Montana T-shirt as an early Christmas present in 2020. Now, her 8-month-old baby girl has been showered with love from none other than Hannah Montana herself.

On Wednesday, March 24, Miley Cyrus sent a bouquet from her pop star alter ego to Joe and his family in honour of the 15th anniversary of her Disney Channel show, Hannah Montana. Hidden in her handwritten card was a sneaky clue that sent fans into a wild frenzy.

Joe posted a picture of the star-shaped flower arrangement, with purple, yellow and pink blooms. He wrote, “HOLY HANNAH MONTANA!!! THANK YOU @mileycyrus WE LOVE IT! THIS IS EPIC!!”

Sophie added, “THANK U HANNAH WE [purple heart] U.”

However, Smilers zoomed in on the note that Miley had written for the couple. It appeared to read, “To: Joe & Sophie! It was so sweet of you to name your daughter after me! Sending all my love to little Miss Hannah Montana! Love, Hannah Montana.”

Do you think Willa’s secret name is somehow related to Hannah Montana? Or it is just an inside joke? Talk to us in the comments below!

Paparazzi are known to be on the lookout for any kind of celebrity news 24×7. They often go to extreme lengths, sometimes even spy on their preferred celebrities to get a snap for their publication. This often leads to an invasion of privacy and ticks the celebrities to the point of lashing out. The Daily Mail is a British publication with a bit of a reputation for slip-shod, inaccurate, scaremongering reporting. It’s not uncommon to hear it referred to as ‘The Daily Fail‘ online, as it tends to rub a lot of people the wrong way.

That includes some of the people profiled in the publication itself, like Game of Thrones star Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). The Daily Mail ran a photo of her riding her electric motorbike in Los Angeles. She shot back at them on her Instagram for “sitting outside our house” for generally being lame.

Lena Headey is famous for playing the role of Cersei Lannister on the fantasy series Game of Thrones. She is currently busy with her new film Nine Bullets.
