Game of Thrones is a long show, and while we might have all the time in the world to watch it over and over again, not everybody does. Especially the stars of the show, many of whom have admitted to not having watched the show in full. The latest star to make this confession is Gemma Whelan, who played the role of Yara Greyjoy on the show. Read on!
Speaking on the UK TV program Sunday Brunch, Gemma revealed she was yet to watch most of the show, including the ending:
“I haven’t watched the end yet, no.
I do know what happens I came home and my husband was watching it and I saw the final bit but I haven’t seen most of the series yet, because we didn’t have internet in our house.”
Whelan also commented on how it was to have worked on Game of Thrones:
“It was such a fun thing to do. It’s hard to quantify – having that on your CV definitely changes things, but in terms of actually that being a tangible thing in your life, it’s hard to know. But of course, it really does help.”
Well, let’s hope she catches up on the show soon. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
They say it’s for the best if certain things don’t work out. But if you ask us, Game of Thrones prequel not happening was just too sad. The prequel, unofficially called The Long Night was going to showcase the history of Westeros dating back 1000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and it was going to be such a fascinating watch but when the cancellation was announced, let’s be honest — it sucked. Turns out we are not the only one thinking of it. Josh Whitehouse, one of the stars of the doomed prequel has recently talked about the show and what it meant for him. Read on!
While we know that the likes of Naomi Watts had already shot the pilot for the show, we still don’t know the exact reason why the show didn’t take off. Whitehouse was also going to be a part of the show and while he wasn’t going to feature until the second episode, he was still very excited about it. He caught up with TooFab and said that he had not shot for the pilot but was very proud to have got the auditions right.
“It was mind-blowing, just such an honor to even be considered for something like that. I got the audition, I got the job and then I spent a year and a half waiting for it to actually happen, pre-prod stuff.”
After waiting for so long he was obviously disappointed but he still looked at the bright side.
“Then it ended up getting canceled and I was like, ‘Oh, alright,’” he continued, “I was just honored to be involved, even to be able to say that is a huge thing for my career, it was such a big show.”
He also thought that because the show got canceled he didn’t have to deal with the pressure of being part of the Game of Thrones world. He said:
“In a sense, like, Game of Thrones was such a huge thing already, it’s kind of nice to not have that pressure, the potential to not live up to expectations and bring something new to the world,” he added. “But either way I would have been happy.”
Well, maybe things do happen for the best. While we would have really liked to see the Bloodmoon world, we have other prequels to look forward to!

Our universe badly needs a superhero right now. With the Coronavirus spreading its wings we could have done with an actual superhero or two. However, as doctors around the world do their best as our actual saviors, let’s shift our focus briefly to our virtual superheroes. Speaking of, we can all agree that Deadpool is unarguably the most different of them all and as a result, it has piqued the interest of a certain Queen. Read on to find out more!
Its been a year since Game of Thrones ended its run and with that came the end of the reign of a decade for Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister. The manner in which it came to halt is still being discussed in the aisles of various forums, with Headey herself making her displeasure known to the world.
She had then said:
“I invested as a viewer and I have my favorite characters. And I’ve got a few of my own gripes. But I haven’t sat down drunkenly with David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] yet.”
Before signing off with:
“I will say I wanted a better death.”
Well, be that as it may, Headey seems to have moved on and even has her eyes set on her dream role!
Speaking with HeroicHollywood recently, she said she loves the character of Deadpool and would love to play it. She also realizes that it has been taken but come on that shouldn’t stop her from dreaming. Universe has acted in stranger ways before. She said:
“Well, I’d love to play Deadpool. Obvs. Anyway, that’s been taken.”
While we absolutely love Ryan Reynolds’ version of Deadpool, that franchise can definitely accommodate Headey in some way or the other. Right?
Can you imagine Headey as Deadpool? Let us know in the comments below!
Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones is on a roll these days. After getting the rave reviews for her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels she is riding high on success. After the premiere of her new show, she got some time to reflect on her journey so far and we are excited to bring those reflections to you. Read on to find out more!
Dormer recently spoke to Variety and talked candidly about her journey in Game of Thrones. In many ways, Game of Thrones was the gamechanger for Dormer and she was aware of it. She was in the series for five seasons and showcased her talent. Speaking about her infamous death she said:
“I was ever so grateful that I was with Jonathan [Pryce who played the High Sparrow]. To have such a partner for my last scene was really a gift.”
She was also very understanding of the kind of challenge the showrunners had on their hands. She said:
“But I think Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] had an almost impossible task in wrapping up the show. And by the very nature of the sheer quantity of storylines and characters, they had to start wrapping up around Season 6, which they did with the Tyrells and other beloved characters. It was almost going to be the impossible task, I think, regardless of what they had done, to satisfy the third act for everyone in the time that they had.”
She also reflected fondly on her journey and had no complaints at all from the makers. She believed that she was in the show for the perfect duration and it was her golden ticket.
“I got the golden ticket, the perfect length of time. I watched Season 1 as a fan, came in the second season, did a good solid five years just as the show had this incredible explosion, and then I got out in time to watch the end and sit on the couch again.”
Well, Dormer didn’t let her guard down at all after the success of Thrones. Recently she took her fans through behind the scenes video of Penny Dreadful and it was amazing to see the effort.
