On May 20th 2019, on the day of the Game of Thrones series finale, George R R Martin took to his “Not a Blog” to express his feelings about the show. In this post, he decided to tell us about the future journeys of the cast and the rest of the team of Game of Thrones.

We already knew that David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are making the next Star Wars films. What we did not know was that Bryan Cogman, the third writer/showrunner for Game of Thrones, who Martin very fondly calls “the third head of the dragon”, is going to start his work on a “big Tolkien project” with Amazon.

Martin’s exact words were:

“David and Dan are going on to STAR WARS and other projects beyond that. Amazon scooped up Bryan Cogman, and put him to work on developing shows of his own, as well as helping out on their big Tolkien project.”

Reportedly, Amazon is spending an insane amount of money (approximately $1 billion to make five seasons as per its deal struck with Tolkien estate) to make it. Bryan Cogman is the writer of some brilliantly made Game of Thrones’ episodes like “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, “The Rains of Castamere”, “The Mountain and the Viper” and the very recent fan favourite, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”.

After this, Variety also confirmed that Cogman was on board, alongside the writing team of JD Payne and Patrick McKay, for the show.

The details about the Lord of the Rings show are still hazy except the fact it will explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring”. However, recently Amazon confirmed that it might be set during the “Second Age of Middle-earth”.

The 21st century has witnessed an unprecedented rise in science and technology. These advances have helped bring fantasy to life. The last decade saw the bar for quality TV shows getting raised to never-before-seen heights. Game of Thrones played a major role in raising that bar even higher. Scientists have researched the show’s incredible success, relating it to real life. The fantasy epic still holds the record for most Emmy awards won. Once again the series proved that it still rules the heart of the audience. Game of Thrones was voted as the Greatest TV Show of 21st century by Digital Spy readers.

Digital Spy shortlisted 150 shows for their readers, and they voted for their favourite shows. The shows were curated from viewing figures, popularity ratings, newsworthiness and online presence. As expected the cream rose to the top. Game of Thrones was favourited by the most number of voters, showing off its popularity even after it ended more than a year ago.

The list also included other famous shows like Breaking Bad and Peaky Blinders from the past two decades. Despite the controversial final season, the series seems to have maintained its fan base. It’s a big win for Game of Thrones fans from all over the world!

The New Year brings with it new hopes and opportunities for everyone around the world. People all over the world are trying to get back on their feet after everything that happened in the Red Wedding year. Many are trying to get a fresh start, including some of Game of Thrones stars. Emilia Clarke, famous for playing Daenerys Targaryen, recently sold off her lavish California home at $4.4 million.

The modern home in Los Angeles’ artsy beachside Venice neighbourhood was truly a fit for the Queen of Dragons. The 2,817-square-foot home was built in 2009. It includes two bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The gated property features a courtyard with a 30-foot pool and multiple areas for lounging, including a covered space. The front patio has 80-year-old olive trees. The 0.12-acre property offers privacy behind its walls and mature greenery. It is also conveniently close to the beach and hip shopping and dining around the corner on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Clarke paid $4.6 million for the property in 2016, records show. She put it on the market for just under $5 million in August. It sold just before the end of the year after a price cut in November.

This might indicate Emilia plans to stay in England permanently. Earlier in 2020, Maisie Williams expressed her desire to move to France with her boyfriend. Do you have any such plans? Talk to us in the comments below!

The year 2020 was tough for people all around the world. In times like these, they need a distraction for momentary relief. That’s where the entertainment industry steps in. The artists work really hard on and off-screen to manage their job as well as their family. Some put up a smile even when they face grave problems in real life, like Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa. Entertainment Weekly recently honoured Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal for his performance on The Mandalorian.

Pascal is one of the actors who was titled Entertainer of The Year, 2020 by Entertainment Weekly. The show Mandalorian kept the audience hooked all through the year, pretty much like how Game of Thrones did for a decade. Moreover, Pedro was a part of both.

It is why I wanted to do this show. Selfishly, I knew [the Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda] was likely to make people fall in love with the show,” Pedro explained to Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation.”

Keeping viewers interested in an act for such a long time is not an easy job. Talk to us and congratulate Pedro over his achievement in the comments below!
