Game of Thrones was a remarkable show, with tonnes of memorable scenes. From the breath-taking scenery to the vicious dragons, the show proved to be the wonderland of fantasy lovers. However, there were a few scenes that were disturbing to the fans and cast alike. For example, the rape scene of young Daenerys. And the show’s star Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, doesn’t seem to like recalling the scene.
Momoa was asked by The New York Times if he regrets performing the scene on Game of Thrones. He seemed visibly uncomfortable, and replied, “Well, it was important to depict Drogo and his style. You’re playing someone that’s like Genghis Khan. It was a really, really, really hard thing to do. But my job was to play something like that, and it’s not a nice thing, and it’s what that character was. It’s not my job to go, ‘Would I not do it?’ I’ve never really been questioned about ‘Do you regret playing a role?’ We’ll put it this way: I already did it. Not doing it again.”
After the interview, Momoa circled back to the “Thrones” question and told the reporter that it “left a bad feeling in my stomach.”
“When you brought up ‘Game of Thrones,’ you brought up stuff about what’s happening with my character and would I do it again. I was bummed when you asked me that,” Momoa said. “It just feels icky — putting it upon me to remove something. As if an actor even had the choice to do that. We’re not really allowed to do anything. There are producers, there are writers, there are directors, and you don’t get to come in and be like, ‘I’m not going do that because this isn’t kosher right now and not right in the political climate.’ That never happens. So it’s a question that feels icky. I just wanted you to know that.”

A live-action remake of sci-fi fantasy Dune is on the rise, and fans all over the world are highly excited about it. The cast and the crew are equally thrilled about its release, especially Jason Momoa. Having played big roles in famous franchises such as Game of Thrones and DCEU, Momoa has some useful advice for director Denis Villeneuve: “Do not trim it!” It looks like Momoa has learned that lesson from the Justice League’s Snyder Cut Edition.
Momoa told The New York Times, “It was a cool movie. You know what they need to do? They need to make the four-to-six hour version of the first half. It’s like, ‘Let’s watch the four-to-five-hour movie like a TV show; I can choose when I want to watch the whole thing.’ I want to see Denis’s whole vision. I don’t want it to be trimmed.”
Momoa has always been an ardent supporter of Zack Snyder and his vision for the DCEU. And it seems like he wants the same for the Dune movie universe (if it is successful, we are talking about sequels here). He was really happy when Zack Snyder’s dream was realized and congratulated him on the film’s release.
Dune is set to release in theatres and on HBO Max on October 22. Are you excited about the movie? Talk to us in the comments below!
In today’s fast pacing world, we rarely make time for our family, let alone save some time for ourselves. Humanity is slowly losing touch with its emotions. This often leads to mental illnesses of one form another. Filming a show as big as Game of Thrones can be quite intense for its cast and crew. And it took a severe toll on the show’s star Kit Harington’s mental health. He recently opened up about how he dealt with them on The Jess Cagle Show.
Harington said, “I went through, kind of, some mental health difficulties after Thrones and during the end of Thrones, to be honest. And I think it was directly to do with the nature of the show and what I’ve been doing for years.”
“I think I took, sort of, a break after Thrones where, so, I don’t want to work for a year [and] I want to really kind of concentrate on myself. I think I’m really happy I did that.”
While Kit didn’t open up about his time in treatment, he did say that his break from acting helped him be more considerate about the roles he takes, like his upcoming appearance on Modern Love. He said, “Coming back to work and deciding what to take, what to choose…doing this Modern Love episode was a bit like, ‘You don’t have to live in that intense place all the time. Why don’t you do something that takes the weight off? Why don’t you do something fun?’ And that was part of my thinking on this one.”

If we take a look around, there are a lot of people with inspirational stories we can learn from. One Game of Thrones extra, Daniel Wiffen, has turned his life around, thanks to a sibling rivalry, and is taking part in the Tokyo Olympics as a part of Ireland’s national swimming team. Daniel and his brother Nathan took part in Game of Thrones as extras while filming the infamous Red Wedding scene.
Daniel and Nathan Wiffen were introduced to swimming after their older brother Ben took up the sport. It’s worked out well. Daniel will swim for Ireland in the 800m and 1,500m freestyle here in Tokyo while Nathan sliced five seconds off his PB in the 200m backstroke at the Swim Ireland at the National Aquatic Centre last month.
The twins were really excited when they joined as an extra in Game of Thrones. Wiffen said, “When I was younger, yeah. I’ve been in Game of Thrones, an extra in the background of the Red Wedding. Jon Snow, all the main actors, were there and they were all so nice as well. Acting is big for twins when they’re younger. I was loving every minute of it.”
