It’s a matter of few hours and Game of Thrones will be on our screens and in our lives, again. Its an established fact by now that the world cannot wait for game of thrones and is doing everything possible meanwhile to get a little inside information from the series. Because, well, we cannot wait!
Michael Lombardo, HBO programming President and David Benioff, the showrunner recently spoke about some of the extreme measures they have taken to keep the fans away from getting any spoilers. They talked to Entertainment weekly and in the Game of Thrones cover story, they said, “Fewer people received scripts this season. Press won’t get advanced screeners. HBO’s affiliates worldwide can expect to get content much closer to airtime.” This was reported by James Hibberd of Entertainment weekly. He further reported, “Even internally on the show, the ‘circle of trust’ was tightened – code words were routinely used to describe certain scenes or characters, even by the showrunners themselves.”
That’s some crazy security to prevent letting the cat out of the bag. But since they are making a show that has the credit of being known as the most pirated show in last three consecutive years, any level of security must seem less to them. Besides, last year four major episodes got leaked and keeping that in mind, these new security measures are not difficult to comprehend.

David Benioff, the showunner, even described the way he looks at this entire security thing. He said, “It’s like protecting your house. You make it as hard as possible for burglars in the hopes they look for some other to burgle, but it’s impossible to ever completely secure your house.”
Now as we all know, one character which definitely must have needed a code word would have been Jon snow. Going by the guesses (and prayers) of people all around the world, Jon Snow will definitely be resurrected at some point during the upcoming season, but when, that we don’t know.
Though the showrunners still denie anything related to Jon’s comeback on the show, we still have our hopes high.
Just. Cannot. Wait.
Real-life is often different from reel life. The celebrities we idolize often face regular problems like normal people. We might want a life like theirs, but ignore the struggles they had to face. For example, Game of Thrones macho man Jason Momoa. Though he appears fearsome as Khal Drogo and majestic as Aquaman on-screen, he’s completely different in real life. The 41-year-old actor recently opened up about his life off-screen in an interview with Men’s Health magazine.
The Game of Thrones star revealed, “I may look big and tough, but I’m not. I’m nothing like Khal Drogo. I’m not even the king of my own house! I’m absolutely terrified of my wife.”
Momoa loves his family. He said, “We’ve all gotten so much closer. My wife is very sophisticated and smart and our kids and I are kind of like animals that need to be trained a little better. I’m constantly a work in progress, and I’ve just been trying to get better as a father and a husband.”
Jason has been through a lot, without letting anyone know about his troubles. He recently revealed in an interview how his family was facing financial troubles after Game of Thrones. It is tough to imagine someone as popular as he went broke. Things got better for him after the Justice League.

It is no secret to Game of Thrones’ lovers that majority of the show’s filming took place in Ireland. The show led to a boost in tourism sector in the country. No wonder Ireland has a host of Game of Thrones attractions all over the place, new ones opening up soon. The Game of Thrones cast is no stranger to Irish lands. Kit Harington, who filmed a lot of scenes for the fantasy series as Jon Snow, is back in Ireland filming for another show.
The 33-year-old actor was spotted in Dublin filming for the upcoming series of Modern Love. The series tells the stories of couples published in the New York Times.
He was seen cycling through the streets of Dublin for the second season of the Amazon Prime TV show. He looked quite different from his Game of Thrones character. Kit was wrapped up warm in a knit jumper, navy coat and scarf.
The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg is the only other actor officially confirmed for season two of the show. Little to no details are known about which columns have been chosen for the second season.
The Game of Thrones alum is expecting his first child with wife Rose Leslie. What are your expectations with Modern Love’s second season? Tell us in the comments below!
Animated movies are a doorway to relive our childhood. Adults and children enjoy them equally. Some of them have such an engaging story they turn out to be a huge success. Sean Bean starrer Wolfwalkers checks off all the markers of a great animated movie. (Another cool animation Hitpig is on the way!). The movie was released on 13th November in The US and has been received really well by critics worldwide.
Directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, Wolfwalkers is rooted in Irish folklore and art. It follows the tale of a young girl, Robyn (Honor Kneafsey), and her father, Bill (Sean Bean). They have been called from their homeland (England) to take out a pack of wolves in the town of Kilkenny, Ireland, in the 17th century. Robyn longs for the freedom she once had in England and wants to follow in her father’s footsteps as a hunter.
On the other side of the forest are wolfwalkers. They are a small breed of unique humans with the ability to turn into wolves when they sleep. They have control over wild wolves living in the surrounding forests. The wolfwalkers are forced to lash out as the townsfolk destroy their home, hunting them. Robyn must act as a mediator for her Irish town and the wolfwalkers of the forest.
The film features Celtic art and beautifully designed hand-drawn animation. From being the Dad Wolf in Game of Thrones to hunting wolves in Wolfwalkers, Sean Bean has come a long way. Give it a watch and tell us how you felt about it in the comments below!
