Published

Game of Thrones stars are exceptional at acting, and they are slowly spreading their roots in other directions as well. Though most of them can be seen starring in new shows and movies, there are some who have chosen to try their hands at fresh career paths. Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has recently shown an interest in the production of animated films, as reported by Deadline. Williams and her production company Rapt are partnering with UK indie Delaval Film on a short stop motion animation from The Sparks Brothers animation director Joseph Wallace.

The film, Salvation Has No Name, began production in 2020 at Aardman in Bristol and has since moved to Media City in Manchester to continue the shoot safely during COVID. The film will explore themes of xenophobia and the refugee crisis and is depicted through a dynamic mixture of colour and black with a dramatic narrative and international all-female voice cast, including Money Heist star Itziar Ituño.

In the film, a troupe of clowns gather to perform a story about a priest and a refugee but as their misguided tale unfolds, the boundaries between fiction and reality begin to fray. The film is scheduled to finish filming in September.

Actress Lena Headey is also preparing to produce new films and movies with her company Peephole production. Are you excited about Maisie Williams’ new endeavour? Let us know in the comments below!

The image depicts the ravens being sent out from Dragonstone, with one of the best depictions we’ve seen of the citadel’s many terrifying gargolyes and the stone shaped by Valyrian magic.

As with previous calendars in the series, there will be thirteen pieces in total, one for each month and a bonus image. Will be exciting to see what else Sestayo has come up with!

We might even get to see some artworks for Fire and Blood, especially from the Dance of the Dragons period as House of The Dragon is closing in.

Game of Thrones had a lot of complex relationships, and most of them didn’t end well. However, the cast has managed to share a healthy relationship off-screen, some of them are even best buddies. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke shared a season together as on-screen couple Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, but their friendship behind-the-screens is exemplary.

The duo met at a birthday party last week, and they couldn’t help reminiscing their time spent together on Game of Thrones. They took to Instagram to show their affection, with photos capturing them in each other’s arms and lots of heart emojis. Clarke posted a photo on Saturday of Momoa literally sweeping her off her feet at a party for Game of Thrones co-creator David Benioff. She captioned it, “When your sun and stars rolls into town you check that he can still bench press a Khaleesi.”

George R. R. Martin is one of the most famous novelists in the world today, and his stories are loved far and wide. The TV adaptation of his A Song of Ice and Fire was adapted as Game of Thrones, the biggest show of the 21st century. However, he hasn’t been able to complete the novel series, the last book having been published a decade ago. Fans are desperately waiting for the next installment of the series the Winds of Winter. Though he keeps assuring us he is working on the project, the fans are convinced otherwise. Recently he announced his new graphic novel project, titled Voyaging, that he dreamed of ‘long before’ Game Of Thrones’ Westeros.

Martin wrote on his blog Not A Blog, “The Thousand Worlds stories spanned centuries and light-years and had their own cast of heroes, villains, legends, and colourful characters… none of them more colourful than the trader (and ecological engineer) Haviland Tuf, the protagonist of a long series of stories I collected together in the fix-up Tuf Voyaging.”

“I always meant to write more Tuf stories. At one point, back in the 80s, I planned a second collection of stories (Twice As Tuf) and a full-length Tuf novel (Tuf Landing)… but, alas, other novels and television and Ice & Fire came along, and what with one thing and another I never got around to writing them.”

“From time to time, I’ve even played with the idea of a television series about Tuf and his adventures… the stories are presently under option, as it happens, but… well, that hasn’t come to pass yet either. But I am thrilled to be able to say that Haviland Tuf and his cats (he likes cats, y’see) are coming back… in a graphic novel.”

Here is the official description:

George R.R. Martin and Raya Golden’s VOYAGING, VOLUME ONE: THE PLAGUE STAR, the first volume of a graphic novel adaptation of TUF VOYAGING, Martin’s short story collection set in his science fiction universe the Thousand Worlds, to be adapted and illustrated by Golden, which follows a group of unlikely spacefaring rogues on a mysterious mission involving unfathomable galactic fame and fortune (but only if they can survive), to Kaitlin Ketchum at Ten Speed Press, in an exclusive submission.

Martin also shared an artwork by RAYA GOLDEN, with the following comment:

“….these are rough color tests and they may or may not end up looking like this in the end, but I think they’re pretty close to the final versions which I’ll be working from once I finish up the script…”
