Game of Thrones ended with a winner, but this winner was someone that never even competed. With Bran Stark crowned the king, many a fans were disgruntled that their favourites didn’t make it to the big metal chair, one of whom was Tyrion Lannister, the very character that advocated for Bran to be the king. Now, actor Peter Dinklage has revealed why Tyrion always wanted Bran to get the Throne. Read on!
As we recently reported, HBO is bringing the full Game of Thrones disc set in time for the holidays, and it will come loaded with a lot of special features, including cast commentaries and behind the scenes interviews. One of the bits had Peter Dinklage explain why Tyrion chose Bran to rule Westeros.
Entertainment Weekly reported Dinklage’s thoughts on Tyrion’s pick:
“Bran is the only probably pure person in there.
And the fact he cannot father children is key because they’ve repeated the cycle in this Westerosi history of heirs being really bad.”
This would definitely have been a better explanation than the “who has the best story” bit that we got from Tyrion on the show, which has been mocked by the fans of the show for not making sense. Maybe we can all appreciate the decision more now that we’ve got some more context, although that won’t help all fans.
The bit also revealed that the Game of Thrones showrunners confirmed that Bran will be King in George R. R. Martin’s ending as well.

Game of Thrones finished months ago but Emilia Clarke‘s career has continued to scale new heights. While promoting her latest movie “Last Christmas“, Clarke recently spoke to AceShowbiz. She spoke about the holiday season and her modus operandi of celebrations. Read on!
Everybody loves the holiday season and so does the Games of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. She revealed how her mode of celebration varies according to the company:
“We celebrate every year at home in London. I’ll also meet up with my friends around Christmas time and we’ll get drunk together”
Clarke then added:
“But that’s a different kind of celebrating – that doesn’t happen with the family. My mother would never allow it.”
Well, wasn’t that a remarkable revelation from an actress who arguably played the most powerful character on the show! Emilia Clarke’s portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen A.K.A. Khaleesi on Game of Thrones received critical acclaim and lots of popularity all over.
What do you think about this revelation from our Khaleesi? Let us know in the comments below!
Games of Thrones changed the lives of many of its actors. In one case, it even turned a homeless man into a household name! There were others who literally grew up in front of us, Maisie Williams who played the role of Arya Stark, Sophie Turner who brought Sansa Stark to life and Issac Hempstead Wright who portrayed the role of Bran Stark.
The three youngest members of the cast recently spoke about the show to Complex. Read on!
Issac recalling the first day of the shoot said:
“I can remember my first day of shooting because it just rained non-stop and I was like, ‘I don’t think I can do this. What have I gotten myself into?”
Speaking about his character Bran Stark Issac said:
“I just think he has the most extraordinary story, as a disabled ten-year-old, in one of the most brutal universes ever created, who loses his home and his family… and yet, despite all of that, or maybe in fact because of it, he is able to remove himself and dedicate himself to the strange mystical power he has, and actually ends up becoming one of the most powerful characters there is.”
Sophie Turner may be one be the most famous faces on earth now but back when the show began, she was just trying to find her feet. Speaking about her character of Sansa Stark, she said:
“I think [Sansa] is not power-hungry, which automatically makes her a better leader than most people in Game of Thrones, because they get blinded by that power. I think she’s very diplomatic and fair, politically minded, honest, and she’s been through the worst and has come out of it on top.”
Sophie also regretted not being able to do too many stunts on the show:
“I would have loved to do proper stunts, because I never really got to work with the stunt team unless it was [when I was] getting beaten. They are an Emmy-award winning stunt team, and I never got to work with them!”
Maisie Williams portrayal of Arya Stark was arguably one of the most appreciated aspects of the show. She also spoke about the tale behind one of the best lines of the last season!
“You know [series writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] stole that line from an interview I gave. I said Arya would never survive what Sansa survived, and Sansa would never have survived what Arya survived, and then [the characters] said the lines!”
Speaking about the final day of shooting the trio recalled being really emotional.
“I did [cry], I didn’t think I was going to,”
“It was really nostalgic, and very emotional… It was just a season of heartbreak. After so many years, it is impossible to say goodbye in the right way,” Turner recalled.
“It’s impossible to be able to, one, feel all of that in one moment, and two, be able to thank anyone enough. We knew it was going to take a lot of time to set in. Still is.”
Wasn’t it fascinating to hear from three of the youngest but most important characters of the show. Which of these three stars did you like the most on the show? Let us know in the comments below!
A successful show has the power to change the lives of those involved with it. Game of Thrones did the same as well, it changed the fortune of its entire team. Emilia Clarke was one of those, her life changed completely over a decade. Clarke played the character of Daenerys Targaryen on the show which turned out to be one of the most famous characters of all time. She recently spoke to The Guardian about what she went through during the show and her life post it. Read on!
When asked about if her illness changed her life, Clarke responded:
“I’m at the point where I definitely think of the brain hemorrhage as a good thing, because I was never destined to be the ‘young actor goes off the rails’ type, up and down the gossip columns. And having a brain hemorrhage that coincided precisely with the beginning of my career and the beginning of a show that became something quite meaty, it gave me a perspective that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.”
Clarke had lost her father in 2016, spoke about its impact as well “I’m quite a resilient human being, so a parent dying and brain hemorrhages coinciding with success and people following you in the street and getting stalkers – you’re just, like, ‘Well let’s try and make something sensible of it.’”
Clarke had shocked the fans of Game of Thrones a few months ago when she revealed that she was suffering from a life-threatening illness during the early stages of the show. On being asked about it she said she didn’t want anyone to think of her as a sick person.
“Well, you know, then. You know the worries. That people will think your soul, your movement, your voice, who you were,” was damaged. “It was nerve-racking to share it, to be honest. It always is, when you make yourself vulnerable.” She waited so long to talk about it, because, “I didn’t want people to think of me as… sick.”
Emilia Clarke was recently seen in the movie “Last Christmas” which turned out to be a Box Office hit. She spoke about how exhausted she felt after Thrones’ run had ended. She said:
“So, bloated and exhausted I went away for two weeks with my best girlfriend, [The Good Fight star] Rose Leslie, and it was in this retreat in India that I suddenly got it. This is what stopping feels like. And I was able to finally… be kind to myself.”
After all that she had to go through, the kind of performance that Emilia Clarke gave for Game of Thrones seems unbelievable. Let us know your views in the comments section!
