Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 had several awe-inspiring moments to be sure. But the one that hogged all the limelight was a Starbucks cup sitting pretty in front of Daenerys Targaryen on the Winterfell high table. Fans have been pointing to Emilia Clarke as the Mother of the Starbucks Gaffe. After nearly two years, her Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in the series, opened up about the infamous incident.

In a recent interview with Uproxx, Harington talked about his debut film in the MCU, the Eternals. He explained how good he was at keeping secrets (he did it for eight years, thanks to Game of Thrones), and he has always been proud of that skill. He said:

“[Laughs] Yeah. Yeah. I was pretty good. I think I prided myself. I got blamed for leaving a coffee cup on a shot once, which wasn’t me.”

Here he is talking about the infamous coffee cup incident that we mentioned above. He continued:

Yeah… Well, she [Sophie Turner] blamed me for that. And I swear it wasn’t! Other than that, as far as spoilers, no, I didn’t. I’m pretty good! I’m pretty sure I didn’t mess anything up.”

Dune is one of the most promising sci-fi movies of this year, and if successful we might be looking at one of the best fantasy-based movie series of the decade. It has already garnered a lot of attention due to its amazing star cast, which includes Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa. Momoa is known for his great bonding with co-stars, he has maintained a great friendship with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke. Recently in an interview with Stephen Colbert, his Dune co-star Rebecca Ferguson revealed an interesting fact about the actor.

In the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Ferguson talks about her time filming for Dune, her relationship with her castmates and also compares the film with Game of Thrones.  She explained, “It’s a war. It is kind of the story of everything, isn’t it? I refer to it as things I’ve done back in the day. Like the White Queen. It’s the war of the throne, the war of the roses, the Game of Thrones. Not comparing a show with show, but it’s one second you are powerful and with the flip of a coin, you’re doomed.”

Talking about her co-stars Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Jason Momoa, she said, “I have their numbers. And Jason Momoa owes me money. Yeah! What is this about?”

Game of Thrones has a long list of memorable characters, and since we know how infamous George R. R. Martin is for killing off fan favourites, some lucky ones did manage to get away with their lives at the end of the series. One of them was Jon Snow’s wildling buddy Tormund Giantsbane, played by Kristofer Hivju. It seems like Hivju’s new adventures into the wild have drastically altered his appearance, at least that’s what Henry Cavill says.

Netflix recently released The Witcher season 2 trailer, and we get a brief look at Hivju, who will play Nivellen in the show. It’s all prosthetics and CGI magic but Henry Cavill insists that this is Hivju’s true appearance.

The amazing, the wonderful, the electric and the enigmatic Kristofer Hivju. Kristofer was extraordinarily brave for season 2 of The Witcher and decided to play his character of Nivellen with zero make-up or visual effects, as you can see above. Kristofer, we are all so proud,” Cavill wrote.

Nivellen is an important character in The Witcher lore as he appears in Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth, He is the first “monster” Geralt of Rivia encounters who isn’t really a monster. Interestingly, the character is based on the Beast in, you guessed it, Beauty and the Beast.

The Witcher Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on December 17, 2021.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington rose to fame with his role Jon Snow, and has become a household name ever since. Though Jon Snow was admired for his bravery and heroism on the show, he was often ridiculed and later became a meme template for the internet for not knowing a lot of things. And it seems like Harington has absorbed that part of his character a bit too much.

In a recent interview with Total Film, Kit Harington talked about his character, Dane Whitman, from Marvel’s Eternals. And eventually the discussion turned to Game of Thrones. He said:

I’ve got no idea whether my character goes on or not. I had read up on who he could be, or might be. So there’s the possibility for a longer trajectory. And hopefully, I think this is the tip of the iceberg for my character. I hope. But I just don’t know, you know? I’m as in the dark as anyone else. And I try not to live too far ahead in the future with anything. Even when I was in Game of Thrones, even on the sixth season, I presumed the seventh season wasn’t going to happen!”

Whether it is defending the earth from cosmic entities, or holding the ground for Castle Black, Harington seems to be clueless (or acting coy) about a lot of stuff. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments below!

Warriors coach Steve Kerr compares himself to Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark

Warriors coach Steve Kerr compares himself to Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark

The success of Game of Thrones over the past decade has turned it into a pop culture icon. It always finds its way being referenced in several other spheres. For example, we often find politicians comparing the affairs of the state with HBO’s highly acclaimed TV show. However, recently the show was mentioned in a completely different area of work, in the world of sports. The Warriors basketball team’s head coach, Steve Kerr, is pretty impressed with the performance of his players. And he compared himself to Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark.

In a post-match press conference, Steve Kerr quoted, “I’m like Arya from Game of Thrones. I have all the names of the media members who picked us to be outside the playoffs, and I’m just checking off the box.”

The Warriors are off to a 10-1 start — the best record in the league. They have the best net rating (by a couple of points), the top-ranked defense, and Stephen Curry playing like an MVP. That’s faster than even Warriors’ optimists had them coming out of the gate — and most pundits had the Warriors lower than that (for the record, I picked them fifth in the West). Some had the Warriors out of the playoffs altogether. Steve Kerr said he noticed and made an Arya Stark from Game of Thrones list of media members who underestimated the Warriors.

Do you agree with Kerr’s comparison? Talk to us in the comments below!

Matt Smith says House of The Dragon isn't aiming to re-create Game of Thrones' success

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The production hit a little snag recently after a positive COVID-19 case was detected, but since then it has been back to normal. Fans are highly excited about the upcoming series but they do have concerns if it will be as good as the original series, especially after the controversial final season.

Actor Matt Smith, who is set to play the Rogue Prince Daemon Targaryen in the prequel show, thinks it won’t be possible for House of The Dragon to reach the same heights of popularity and fame as Game of Thrones, as the latter was one of a kind and a decade-defining phenomenon.

During an interview with CNET promoting his new film Last Night in Soho, Smith talked about the aspect of the show they always have to keep in mind, that is, the comparison with its predecessor, Game of Thrones. He said:

“I suppose that paint is your sort of attitude you bring in and see what sticks. We’re trying to make a show that’s entertaining on lots of different levels and has a similar scope and ambition to the previous show, in many respects. But obviously, you’re never going to be able to re-create the success of Game of Thrones, because that was a very particular point in time. It was its own unique entity.

What do you think about House of The Dragon? Will it be as good as Game of Thrones? Talk to us in the comments below!

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is in full swing. We’re receiving updates about the filming currently going on in the Portuguese city of stone, Monsanto, via leaks that are reported every other day. Former Doctor Who Matt Smith is playing the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen on the show, one of the key players in the story of House of The Dragon. And his dragon, Caraxes, is going to be one of the meanest, biggest, and baddest beasts in the series.

Smith, in his recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, talked about various aspects of the Game of Thrones prequel, including Daemon’s dragon Caraxes. This is how he described him:

“Caraxes is pretty good, y’know? He’s big and red and angry. He’s a really angry dragon. Mine’s the angriest of all the dragons. There is no angrier dragon than Caraxes. He’s a real moody bastard.”
