Game of Thrones has been a success story for HBO, taking George R. R. Martin‘s epic fantasy and making a stellar TV series out of it. The six seasons until now have been great, with every season topping off the last when it comes to popularity. HBO has said that the last two seasons of the show, Season 7 and 8, will have lesser number of episodes, with Season 7 confirmed to have 7 episodes, instead of the regular 10. However, despite this, season 7 filming is taking the same time. Actor Iain Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont in the series, revealed this, and some more, in an interview with RadioTimes.com. Read on!
Talking about how the filming time hasn’t changed, Glen said :
“They are taking the length of time it takes to shoot ten episodes to shoot just seven this year and six next year. There are fifteen more hours left in Thrones as we understand it, but that may change, but that’s as far as we know.
I think the scale and size of the set pieces, the world that is being created it’s just getting more and more extraordinary and they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten.”
Game of Thrones is set to return to television with the seventh season in the summer of 2017, with filming expected to finish mid-February.
Iain Glen says he doesn’t know if Jorah will make it till the end. Talking about the same, he said :
“I don’t know of course if I am going to make the last one. I am sort of doing a head count, but I think it’s certainly under ten people who were in the original pilot and have been in every season since. I have grown very attached to it. I love the people involved. Dan and David are very benign showrunners and very good people.”
Well, if you remember, Daenerys Targaryen sent Jorah Mormont on a quest to find cure for his Greyscale. She told him she wants him by her side when she takes the seven kingdoms, so let’s hope that Jorah succeeds in not turning into a stone!
Talking about the progression in Season 7, Glen said :
“This season you feel that the drama is moving towards its end game, more characters are overlapping so we are seeing a lot more of each other, than perhaps in the past. In the same scenes and we are going to the same places.”
You can read the full interview, over here. While in Game of Thrones, Iain Glen’s character Jorah remains fully loyal to Daenerys, in an alternate universe in the TV drama Delicious, Iain plays hotelier Leo Vincent, who is shown to have an affair with his ex-wife while still being in a loving marriage with his wife.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Even though the year 2020 has been full of tragedies and losses, there is some good news. Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are getting ready to welcome their first child.
The couple officially announced it back in September this year. It seems like they are getting ready to welcome the new family member. They were spotted on Thursday in England while loading some stuff into their Land Rover Defender.
Leslie stood to the side with the couple’s sweet dog. Kit did the heavy lifting, placing carrier bags and black bags into the back of the car.
Rose sported a casual outfit and a stylish hat. She looked amazing with her baby bump on view. She held the pair’s pet Whippet’s lead in one hand and handed bags to Kit with the other.
Rose first showed off her baby bump earlier this year in stunning photos for Make Magazine. She explained that the pair of them have moved home to England ahead of having their baby.
“What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup,” she said. “It’s a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It’s so peaceful.”
Kit and Rose are setting some serious relationship goals. Shower the cute family with your best wishes in the comments below!
Failures are the stepping stones to success. Game of Thrones became the huge and thriving franchise it is today after repeated efforts of the cast and crew despite facing huge setbacks. The popular TV show hit a major roadblock at the beginning of its filming. The original pilot episode of the series turned out to be a $10 million disaster and had to be re-filmed with a lot of changes. One of those changes also removed George R.R. Martin’s cameo scene.
Martin was supposed to appear as a Pentoshi magister at Khal Drogo and Daenerys’ wedding scene. He shared a picture of him in costume, along with co-star Ian McNeice. McNeice is dressed as Illyrio Mopatis, another magister of Pentos. They were shooting in Morocco.
Here’s another peek at the past, and the original pilot for GoT. We shot the wedding of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo in Morocco. Ian McNeice played Illyrio Mopatis, and I played one of the wedding guests, presumably another magister. #TBT https://t.co/2BiGflKIIO pic.twitter.com/ItkUw75uvV

The Game of Thrones writer shared the picture on his Twitter and personal website, Not a Blog. Fans loved the snap, some even described them as medieval Santas.
More can be found out about the show’s unaired pilot in Entertainment Weekly editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon. The book contains detailed information about various interviews with the show’s cast and crew. It delves into the secret behind-the-scene mysteries and brings them to the limelight.
Though the original pilot was absolutely bonkers and had to be re-shot, it lost a few fun elements. Like George R.R. Martin’s cameo, and even Ian McNeice was replaced. What do you think about the unaired pilot? Tell us in the comments below!
