Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey flips Piers Morgan after he quits Good Morning Britain

Mental health is one of the most overlooked aspects of today’s fast-paced life. It is often hard for people to open up about mental issues. Those who open up face judgemental behaviour and are trolled by their peers. Earlier this month, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey. They talked about Meghan’s mistreatment at the hands of the British Royal Family and why they left.

The interview inspired a lot of intense reactions both sympathetic and unsympathetic. Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan was definitely in the latter camp. He said he didn’t believe Markle when she talked about her failing mental health in particular. Although he later clarified that he takes mental health issues and suicide seriously. His words resulted in a huge backlash, with over 41,000 people filing complaints with ITV.

From there, ITV gave Morgan a few options: apologize, get fired, or quit. He chose to quit, which has set off a new round of intense reactions. One of them comes from Game of Thrones veteran Lena Headey.

Headey flipped Morgan in the clip, saying, “Piers Morgan, you’ve been called out, mate, on some true, true colours. Maybe we can pop in and do an episode of your podcast you may be doing from a shed. Not that there’s anything wrong with doing a podcast from a shed but I think you will consider your own fall from grace far worse than any else.”

Earlier, Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner backed Meghan Markle over the controversial interview. What are your views on the Royal Family drama? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones showcased some of the finest warriors in fantastical television history. Out of all the warriors on the show, Ser Gregor Clegane (The Mountain) was the most feared. Why wouldn’t he be fearsome? The Mountain was played by the world’s strongest man Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson himself!

Björnsson showed off his great strength by breaking the world’s deadlift record- he lifted 501 kg. After setting up the milestone, he challenged long time rival Eddie Hall to a boxing match. The match has been dubbed the heaviest boxing match in history.

Bjornsson is showing off his incredible new figure as he prepares for his highly anticipated boxing debut. And he looks incredibly terrifying, even more than how he was on Game of Thrones as the Mountain.

The 6-foot-7 monster dropped 40 pounds in one month after the official announcement of the boxing match. In May, Bjornsson beat Hall’s world record deadlift to set a new mark at 1,104 pounds. The pair have long been engaged in a war of words with each previously accusing the other of cheating.

Björnsson’s recent Instagram posts clearly show that he has continued his weight cut and is looking fierce ahead of the fight, still five months away. Who do you think will win the bout? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones first premiered on HBO ten years ago on April 17, 2011. The show is dubbed the greatest TV show of the 21st century. The series won a total of 59 Primetime Emmy Awards. The record still stands to this day. No wonder HBO is so invested in exploring the Game of Thrones universe, with several prequels in development. HBO will celebrate a decade of Game Of Thrones with its month-long event, The Iron Anniversary. And it seems like nature has joined the celebrations as well.

Last week, Mount Fagradalsfjall erupted after 900 years of slumber 40 kilometres from the capital Reykjavik. The area has become a tourist hot spot for the weekend hikers. Thousands occasionally gather admiring the hot red glowing lava that streams into a river. Recent pictures of the visitors from the scene have now sparked jokes and humour across social media. The internet compared the breath-taking volcanic spurts and incandescent lava with a scene from the HBO drama.

Wow! Iceland knows how to volcano. From tonight! #icelanderuption #icelandvolcano #iceland pic.twitter.com/YdgcCJXdQZ

The photos of eruption scenes were captured by an aerial videographer, Brian Emfinger. Many compared its visual appeal with R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series’ Game of Thrones’ symbology that revolves around ice vs. fire. The image of the 300,000 cubic meters (10.5 million cubic feet) of lava streaming in the ice-cold region and Icelanders. Collectively reminded the internet of HBO’s screenplay, as the scenes bore resemblance with the fantasy drama.

Land of fire and ice.

HBO’s Iron Anniversary celebrations are currently underway on account of a decade of Game of Thrones. The month-long celebrations will include various events and specials related to the epic on HBO and HBO Max. The Marathrone, which began on 10th April, is already at its peak. Bryan Cogman, the writer for the acclaimed series, is busy reliving his favourite moments from the Marathrone.

He listed his favourite episodes, character-wise, on Twitter. “Okay, as promised, I’m starting my own #GoT watchlist thread after taking a look at some of the, let’s just say… interesting selections for this Iron Anniversary thing,” Cogman tweeted on Monday. “Will add to this thread throughout the week.”

I’m limiting replies on this for obvious reasons. Sorry.
