Mastering a musical instrument is not just a skill, but a great way to calm your nerves. Game of Thrones has always had a deep connection with music with its amazing scores. The tunes were so great that Ramin Djawadi, the music composer for the show, has been called once again to score for House of The Dragon. The members of the cast are also passionate about music, like Jason Momoa.
Momoa was really excited when Guitar World reached out to him for an interview. He mentioned all his childhood heroes, “Pantera, Rage Against The Machine, Primus, Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers. I love John Frusciante and Flea, they’re really huge in my life. Tool, too. I listen to pretty much all of it. A lot of the music I search for is a lot more off the beaten path nowadays. I respect everyone out there doing it, because it’s so hard and so challenging, and I just try not to judge.”
He continued, “I’m really rooted, like one of my gods in music is Tom Waits, but having said that, my goddess is probably Ani DiFranco. I was raised with Miles Davis and Janis Joplin, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor is one of my all-time favourites, too.”
“I always knew I wanted to play bass. After that I wanted to play standup, so I bought one and now it’s a passion for me, with how it makes me feel and how it sounds. I studied and studied and studied bass, and I was like ‘My God, I wish I would have done this when I was young.’ I wish that I had that opportunity –but I’m making up for the lost time.”

There are times when people working with you become special to you. When someone is close to you, their birth date holds a special value. Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities in the acting industry. The humble and handsome hunk is known for his habit of lighting up the lives of those around him. He once gifted a little Aquaman fan battling cancer his Trident from the movie Aquaman. He recalled one such incident in an interview with Guitar World.
It was his assistant’s birthday, and he wanted to make it special. Momoa recalled, “We were on the set of Aquaman. I always have instruments on the set, so my son was playing the drums and my daughter was playing the guitar. It was my assistant’s birthday, and she really loves Tool, so I borrowed a bass from my buddy and we all played Sober for her. Right then, my passion for bass really exploded. The moment I put it on, I could just feel the connection – and it was all over.”
He continued, “I always knew I wanted to play bass. After that I wanted to play standup, so I bought one and now it’s a passion for me, with how it makes me feel and how it sounds. I studied and studied and studied bass, and I was like ‘My God, I wish I would have done this when I was young.’ I wish that I had that opportunity –but I’m making up for the lost time.”

The Red Wedding year 2020 took a toll on our everyday life. It diminished our outgoing activities to a bare minimum. The COVID-19 pandemic forced people to stay behind closed doors and avoid any physical interaction. No wonder, the dating scenario under the lockdown period changed dramatically. Tim Landers, the Irish actor who played a brother of the Night’s Watch on Game of Thrones, recalled one such incident with Sunday World.
The 54-year-old actor participated in a reality TV show named First Dates. He reminisced, “It was the Gibson Hotel as usual and I had my mask on when I arrived up and was met by the production staff, who also had masks on. They explained what was going to happen. But they want to maintain I was just arriving on the date, so that was filmed later.”
“When I met Matteo (the maître d’) he was behind a screen when I met him when I came in. Then when the date started I was waiting at the bar at a seat two metres from him. When we were brought over to the table we were amazed to find there was a huge distance between us on a very long table, maybe four or five metres away from each other.”
“They had to do what they had to do under the precautions,” Tim points out. “I feel I was told everything. It wasn’t like I didn’t know, it was fine. And he was lovely, a very funny guy. We had a lot in common.”

Game of Thrones was an astonishing tale that amassed record viewership in the past decade. The fantastical drama was an indispensable part of life for both the show’s crew and the audience. Many of the show’s cast members have admitted that the show influenced their life and career in a big way. (Like Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei)). Irish actor Tim Landers recently opened up about his time on Game of Thrones in an interview with Sunday World.
Landers landed the role of Kegs, one of the brothers at Night’s Watch. “I got the part of Kegs, I was one of the Night’s Watch,” he notes. “I had one line in episode eight, the Mountain and the Viper. It’s a very important line from the book, ‘the rains of Castamere’. The way I was treated was fantastic. They put me in a trailer and said ‘hang on there’ and it turned out the actor sharing it with me was Jason Barry, who is from Dublin and was in Titanic, which blew my mind.”
“I remember arriving on set and I said ‘I’m in Lord of the Rings’, which I was a huge fan of, it was the closest I could put it down to.”
He added, “I didn’t get to meet to any of the big names but my buddy who plays my wench, we were in a brothel, my buddy was Lois Winstone, who is Ray Winstone’s daughter. We both get killed in the scene. I was killed off camera by a guy with a hatchet and she was killed by an arrow fired by Rose, the girl who’s married to Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) in real life.”
