Game of Thrones had some of the best soundtracks in television history, thanks to the creative genius of music composer Ramin Djawadi. He is back with his amazing scores for House of The Dragon, Game of Thrones’ prequel series, and just the teaser trailer was enough to remind the fans why we love his work so much. Djawadi has also composed tunes for the video game The New World, and you can listen to it right below!
Ahead of New World launching on September 28, Amazon Game Studios has revealed that Game of Thrones composers Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell have collaborated to create music for the MMO.
Speaking to NME, Djawadi said the duo agreed to soundtrack New World because it “immediately it caught our attention” and offered the chance to work on a “blank slate”
Djawadi said it was “clearly a challenge to come up with a world” that had no existing material. Adding on, Campbell said, “that’s the pro and the con – you get to come up with something completely new, but coming up with something completely new is really hard sometimes”.
Campbell also shared that “One of the hardest things about this was that the world is so vast…how do you use harmonica in one track and then…fiddle and banjo, or just a choir, and still sound like New World?”

Game of Thrones was the biggest TV show of the 21st century, and it has inspired a lot of shows, games and movies. There’s a reason why every TV show that shines a bit brighter than the others and shows promise is being compared with HBO’s epic fantasy. It set the bar for quality TV series really high. The Office is one of the most popular sitcoms that was produced in the last decade. And Game of Thrones had an important role to play in many of its storylines.
Brian Baumgartner played Kevin Malone in the NBC comedy series The Office. During one interview, the actor uncovered how the Game of Thrones series inspired The Office.
During a chat with Baumgartner on The Office Deep Dive, writer, director, and producer Brent Forrester explains how Game of Thrones played a role in the story arcs The Office features. “I remember Greg [Daniels] figured out TV shows should have arcs before anybody did,” says Forrester. He explains how, historically, television shows would tell a singular story in an episode. “You could tune in whenever a show came on, especially in syndication, and know what was happening.”
“Greg recognized that arcing out was the new way of doing things — he was reading Game of Thrones,” Forrester adds. “When Daniels saw Game of Thrones on HBO and realized the production benefitted from know where the story would go long term, he started applying that methodology to The Office.”

Actress Hannah Waddingham is gathering heaps of applauds and praise recently for her first-ever Emmy Awards win, for her role in Ted Lasso. She certainly deserves it, however, most Game of Thrones fans remember her from a role she played way before Ted Lasso became famous. She played the famous ‘shame‘ nun on Game of Thrones, accompanying Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) on her ‘Walk of Shame’. What’s surprising is the fact she was actually a wild card candidate for the role.
She revealed in a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment, “Apparently I’d been put in as the wild card, I went in for the meeting, and met [showrunners] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], and I was a bit like: ‘Hello. I don’t really know why I’m here and I know nothing about Game of Thrones. And I’m so pregnant, I might have an accident right here!”
The key moment came during the audition when Waddingham accidentally hit a casting assistant on the leg with a wooden ladle. “In the middle of the tape, when I’m meant to be really nasty, I went: ‘Oh my god, darling. Are you all right?’ And when I came back for my recall, David Benioff and Dan Weiss just went: ‘That made us laugh so much. It was like this menacing person who’s going to kill someone, and then you turned into Joanna Lumley!’”
And after that, casting director Nina Gold “came chasing out after me” and offered her the job.

Game of Thrones was one of the biggest shows of the past decade. Due to its ginormous success, the show is getting a prequel series, House of The Dragon. While a spinoff show is good, a movie based on the epic fantasy would be even better, don’t you think? Well, Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor doesn’t share that opinion.
Director Alan Taylor was behind some of the biggest and best episodes of Game of Thrones during the show’s run. His latest big project is a prequel film to HBO’s other blockbuster series The Sopranos, and is called The Many Saints of Newark. In an interview with JOE, he revealed why he thinks making a Game of Thrones movie is not such a great idea.
“I almost did the Deadwood movie and it was heartbreaking to not do it. I had to drop out of the Deadwood movie to do the Sopranos movie!”
“Certainly, there could be a Game of Thrones movie, but in a way there was already a Game Of Thrones movie because the show was so big, so I’m not sure the jump to the big screen would be that different.”
“I’ll have to think of something more off-kilter, like a Bored To Death movie. I did the pilot to Bored To Death and that was a very unique tone and I just loved everything about it. So it would be hilarious to see that done as a movie.”
