Game of Thrones was a memorable experience for both the fans and the show’s crew. Rarely do we see a TV show achieve massive popularity as Game of Thrones did in the last decade. Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They are working on a new sci-fi Netflix fantasy the Three-Body Problem, and the show has cast two notable Game of Thrones alums.

Netflix’s 3 Body Problem, a series adaptation of Liu Cixin’s sci-fi trilogy, has set a cast of 12 actors including Benedict Wong (Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), Tsai Chin (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), and Game of Thrones alums John Bradley and Liam Cunningham. Also joining the cast are Jovan Adepo (When They See Us), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Jess Hong (Inked: The Brokenwood Mysteries), Marlo Kelly (Dare Me), Alex Sharp (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Sea Shimooka (Arrow), Zine Tseng and Saamer Usmani (The Mauritanian).

3 Body Problem is a sci-fi fantasy series inspired by Liu’s epic science fiction trilogy, which tells the story of what happens when humanity discovers that we are not alone in the universe. The first book tells the story of Ye Wenjie, who, following her father’s death at the hands of the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution, attempts to help aliens invade Earth, while different factions on Earth plan different ways of welcoming the extra-terrestrials. It originally was serialized in Science Fiction World in 2006 before being published in 2008.

Videos games have been a part of pop culture ever since they were introduced about half-a-century ago. Many of them have become so popular, they have been converted into films and TV shows, the most recent example being HBO’s TV adaptation, The Last of Us. It is one of the most ambitious shows being filmed currently by the streaming giant, whose budget even exceeds that of the Emmy-winning juggernaut Game of Thrones. And fans are getting really excited about the series, as pictures from the set are leaking all over the internet.

For the first time since the production began, we have a full costumed look at Joel, played by none other than Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal.

Ramsey plays the young survivor Ellie whose blood could be the cure to the said pandemic, while Pascal is the hardened survivor Joel tasked with smuggling Ellie across the US.

Game of Thrones stars have spread their wings and made their mark in the filming industry with their amazing talent. We can find them regularly appearing on other popular shows and films, providing the fans with a nostalgic and warm feeling from their time on Game of Thrones. Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternals. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Clarke has landed another important role recently, in the biopic McCarthy.

The film will take a look at demagogic US senator Joseph McCarthy, who drove the anti-communist doctrine known as McCarthyism, in the US in the 1950s. It will also explore what drove the lawyer and decorated former US Marine down a path that led to show-trials and venomous populism.

Clarke will take on the role of McCarthy’s politically ambitious wife Jean Kerr opposite Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon, who plays the titular role.

The saga of Joe McCarthy is timeless and the drama behind his rise to power, sobering,” producer Zach Studin said (via Deadline). “It is a powerful reminder to us all that truth and facts are the lifeblood of a free and open society.”
