While announcing the news a few days ago, Amber wrote: “I’m so excited to share this news with you,” she began her note, sharing a photo of her and her baby daughter. “Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child. I wanted to do it on my own terms. Now appreciate how radical it is for us as women to think about one of the most fundamental parts of our destinies in this way.”

She continued. “I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib,” she went on to say. “A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business. I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.”

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has been a topic of chit chat amongst the lovers of the hit fantasy series. The show has displayed huge potential so far, and promises to improve on some of the key aspects that made the original show a blockbuster. The fans are already looking forward to meeting the new dragons, and also have a look at the legendary Valyrian steel swords. Though not many were left by the time Game of Thrones sets in, the prequel series will showcase quite many of them. This is because many Valyrian steel swords were lost during the Dance of the Dragons, a civil war that would be the prime focus of House of The Dragon.

In his recent podcast, The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, House of The Dragon’s executive producer Ryan J. Condal talked about developing props for the show. He invited the head of armoury Tim Lewis for the show, and they discussed adding special details to the weapons to be used in the prequel show.

Condal revealed that he had just “liberated” his first prop from the production. He hides its precise nature, but he indicates that it is “pointy and bladed”, and it is used in a very specific and important scene that he wanted to get particularly right. He notes it was used in a stunt and had to look a certain way. Condal goes on to mention, in the course of discussing other movie swords, how important worldbuilding is and making everything feel like it fits together.

Lewis mentions that no writer has ever spent so much time in his workshop before as Condal has. The showrunner is always eager to come down to the shop to look at new things or discuss issues. Condal again emphasizes the importance he placed on attempting a specific approach to make things all fit together while also hoping to have weapons that will be iconic.

On being asked whether the Valyrian steel swords on the show will draw from the designs in Game of Thrones, Condal confirms that he and Lewis had discussed the idea that the furniture of a sword—the hilt, the pommel, the guard—might be changed over time, due to damage or changing fashion. He reveals that the first season features three Valyrian steel swords, while keeping mum about the name of the swords.

The actress then thanked her fans, friends and family on Instagram for supporting her and congratulating her for getting the part. She spoke to her followers on Instagram Live.

My brain is fried. It’s just insane,” Carey said to her followers. “I auditioned. It was a fairly long audition process and I didn’t know what the project was or the character was until I got it. I can’t answer any questions or who I’ll be in scenes with but stay tuned for more and I love you and have a great Tuesday!”
