Owning a house is always on the list of dreams one wants to accomplish during their lifetime. But what if that house has a secret theatre that looks like something straight out of Westeros? Priced at $799,000, a house in Tennessee may look like your average high-end listing, but a closer look at the photos will reveal a whole other world — more specifically, a basement made to look like Westeros.
The owners took one room in the spacious home and used it to recreate the fictional continent from the popular book and television series “Game of Thrones” down to the last detail.
“The theatre room will steal the show for most,” reads the listing description. “Top notch sound-proofing, theatre system and Game of Thrones design will make you feel like you just stepped into Universal Studios.”
The mansion quickly caught the eye of Zillow Gone Wild, a popular Instagram page posting strange or unusual mansions. Instagram users quickly poked fun at the fact that, while “Game of Thrones” ran on HBO from 2011 to 2019, the fanbase takes the worlds first imagined by George R. R. Martin extremely seriously, as evidenced by the detail put into this theatre room.
“Imagine how nervous you’d feel being shown up those stairs,” wrote proper_posh_properties. “Then the relief when it’s just an awesome cinema room. They thought Game of Thrones was just gonna be on forever,” Missirlou wrote.
Last year, Game of Thrones and real-life couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie bought a medieval farmhouse reminiscent of the popular show. Would you like to own the mansion? Tell us in the comments below!
Jimmy Fallon is perhaps one of the most famous celebrity talk-show hosts of current times. The list of celebs he has interviewed till now is ginormous, no wonder every famous show or film uses the talk show as a means to advertise. The beloved host completed 1500 episodes of The Tonight Show, which is a great achievement in itself. And Game of Thrones star Kit Harington congratulated him in the sweetest way.
“Guys, tonight is our 1,500th show and, in honour of that, something special is about to happen,” explained Fallon. He went on sharing, “Years ago we had an idea for a bit called ‘Straight Up Goes For It.’ It was a simple idea. We wanted somebody to come out and straight-up sing ‘Drops of Jupiter’ by the band Train. That’s it. That’s the whole idea.”
“The sketch has been our white whale,” Fallon added. “We’ve been pitching it for years. Dozens of people. Famous people that you know and love, both singers, they sing in movies, they dance and they sing, and they actually have music out. They all passed on it. But not tonight. Tonight that changes, because we finally have someone who has the guts to do it.”
That person was Kit Harington and, well, he straight up went for it. Harington admitted to Fallon, “I had a lot of thoughts when you sent me that. Like, a lot. And the sensible part of my brain, the bit that said, ‘You’re not a singer, you have no connection to this song, it’s of no relevance to anything you’re talking about on the show,’ said don’t do it. But there was another little part of my brain, right? The bit that gets me in trouble, that was like, ‘But what if you’re brilliant?’”
However, he also admitted that in the ten seconds before he started the performance, “that same little part of my brain said, ‘you shouldn’t have done this.’”

It has been over a decade since the last Game of Thrones book was released. Fans have been waiting impatiently for George R. R. Martin to finish the next book in the series, The Winds of Winter. Meanwhile, they’re still trying to uncover what they can about where the novels are going, in some cases unearthing new evidence from sources years old.
Novelist and A Song of Ice and Fire fan BryndenBFish recently posted a new find on the series subreddit: “Back in the day, George RR Martin read part of Victarion’s first chapter from TWOW at tiff bell lightbox [in 2012],” he wrote. “But he only read part of the chapter. I was re-watching George read this chapter, and then I noticed something at the end of the reading.”
“At the very end, George flipped to the next page of the Victarion chapter for a brief moment, didn’t read any further and then set the manuscript aside. But for a moment, a whole page, previously unseen was visible.”
A Song of Ice and Fire fans have miraculously deciphered the code from the extremely blurry image. The first paragraph reads:
“When the priest was gone, the dusky woman [illegible] the [illegible] [illegible] and [longer word but has to be a verb] and [illegible] it in the smile from hell
His left arm, the [illegible] and dressing from his arm.
[First underlined portion], he thought.”
And the second:
