The year 2021 has been eventful for Game of Thrones fans all over the world. HBO is celebrating the month of April as the Iron Anniversary on account of a decade of the fantasy series. The streaming giant is busy organizing various events and specials dedicated to Game of Thrones. However, HBO is steadily moving forward with the prequel show House of The Dragon. Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin announced another important role that has been cast for the show. Actor Fabien Frankel will be joining the series as Ser Criston Cole.

Martin wrote on his blog, Not a Blog:

“He is the common-born son of the steward to the Lord of Blackhaven. He has no claim to lands or titles, all he has is his honour and his skill with sword and lance.

A challenger, a champion, cheered by the commons, beloved of the ladies. He is a lover (or is he?), a seducer (or is he?), a betrayer (or is he?), a breaker of hearts and a maker of kings. “

“FIRE & BLOOD readers know him as Ser Criston Cole. HOUSE OF THE DRAGON viewers will know him as FABIEN FRANKEL. In some of his other roles, Frankel has been the son of Dennis Franz (NYPD BLUE) and the lover of Emilia Clarke (LAST CHRISTMAS). And now he is getting tangled up with some more Targaryens. We shall see how that goes.

Welcome to Westeros, Fabien.

And do keep that sword sharp.”

The casting adds to the hype House of The Dragon has already generated. What do you think about Frankel in the role? Tell us in the comments below!

Building a house is always on the list of dreams one wants to accomplish during one’s lifetime. However, it would be awful if your dream slides off into the water. In the case of Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, it might actually happen. Like his character Jon Snow, he’s fighting hard to defend his wall. Well, this time, it’s his garden he is trying to protect. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who starred in the hit fantasy series, win permission to rebuild the moat wall despite Historic England concerns.

Kit Harington, 34, shares the property with his wife and co-star Rose Leslie. His character Jon Snow had to defend a crumbling 700ft-high fortification known as The Wall on Game of Thrones. Now he is facing structural problems closer to home. He is concerned that the moat at his £1.75 million Suffolk farmhouse is in danger of collapsing.

The 34-year-old has applied for permission to carry out repairs to stop the garden from sliding into the water. Plans submitted to the local council say part of the existing 6ft-high moat wall has fallen down and other parts are suffering a ‘significant lean’.

The collapse, which affects two sides of the 15th Century building and has led to part of the earth bank being exposed. It is also putting structural pressure on a small footbridge across the moat.

The couple wants to build a new wall with a concrete core and faced by heritage-style bricks ‘to ensure the long-term stability and safeguard against future problems’. But Historic England fears the plan to replace the retaining wall could lead to the loss of ancient remains and artefacts.

When we stare at a starry night sky, we see the light of the stars that died out thousands of years ago. The earth lost one of its brightest stars, Diana Rigg, not too long ago. Her warm light still shines upon our memories serving as an inspiration. Diana Rigg was left out of BAFTA’s in memoriam tribute on April 11 alongside other stars who died in the last year. The Game Of Thrones and James Bond (1969) actress was omitted along with fellow Bond girl Honor Blackman (1964).

People on social media were baffled by the omissions. One wrote: “Was a disgrace that @BAFTA missed Diana Rigg [and] Honor Blackman from in memoriam. 2 iconic actresses from the 60s and starred in 2 of the most highly thought of Bond films and many others. These were MOVIE stars not only television stars!”

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts explained its decision after the feedback, citing a restricted broadcast duration. “With limited time available for obituaries within the broadcast, it isn’t possible to honour all those who have sadly passed away.

BAFTA’s committee considered Dame Diana Rigg to be better known for her work in TV. So she will be included in BAFTA’s TV Awards broadcast this year. Dame Diana Rigg also features in BAFTA’s online records at www.bafta.org/heritage/in-memory-of.
