The biggest show of the 21st century, Game of Thrones, was in danger of being cancelled in its preliminary stage. The original pilot episode filmed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss was botched beyond imagination, costing HBO a fortune. However, due to constant nagging by the delirious duo, and while also seeing the huge potential of the story of the show, the then HBO head Michael Lombardo greenlit the TV adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s famed novel series. Lombardo has now joined hands with Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage to work on future showbiz projects.

Peter Dinklage will soon collaborate with his Game of Thrones executive to develop some new projects. He has been signed on a multiple-year overall TV deal with Entertainment One which will reunite him with Michael Lombardo, the former HBO head of originals who greenlit Game of Thrones. Michael Lombardo joined eOne as global television president in June 2020. Peter Dinklage’s Estauray Films (that he co-founded alongside David Ginsberg) will create and develop new projects for multiple platforms for the indie studio.

“I am delighted to be reunited with Peter and Brad as well as their partner David,” Lombardo said on Wednesday. “The team at Estuary has both wonderful creative taste as well as outstanding relationships with the industry, and we look forward to bringing many exciting projects to life together.”

Peter Dinklage is the second Game of Thrones alum to head to eOne with an overall deal under Lombardo and joins Emmy-winning director Bryan Cogman, who already has multiple projects in the works for the studio. Dinklage will also be starring in the upcoming R-rated superhero film The Toxic Avenger.

Game of Thrones was one of the most popular shows of all time, and as with any show or film the actors have to stay in their best shape to breathe life into their portrayal. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on the show, is definitely one of the fittest actors in Hollywood currently. His fitness regime consists of a lot of heavy lifting (he absolutely hates yoga) and his favourite outdoor sport rock-climbing. That’s why he was very happy when he announced his next project, which deals extensively with this adrenaline-filled activity. The actor has announced his latest project, the HBO Max reality competition show The Climb. And he describes the project as his ‘dream come true’.

According to Digital Spy, The Climb will follow a group of amateur rock climbers as they travel around the world, taking up challenges along the way. The show will contain eight episodes, so there will be plenty of gruelling tasks for viewers to enjoy. Each contestant will compete for the title of World’s Best Amateur Rock Climber but news of a cash prize is currently unknown. Momoa will be executive producing the series alongside professional rock climber Chris Sharma.

Momoa said, “It’s a dream come true to create a show with one of my idols, my good friend and legendary climber Chris Sharma. I’m thrilled to be partnering with HBO Max and to produce alongside IPC to bring you this incredible show about my favourite sport, rock climbing.”

We are living in the 21st century, and with all the technological advancements humanity has witnessed we still can’t guarantee the safety of the other half of the human race. Crimes against women don’t seem to stop, be it on the streets or within the four walls of a room. These blood-boiling incidents show the lack of morality and a genuine sense of respect in the minds of such animalistic ‘gentlemen’. Game of Thrones star Hannah Waddingham, famous for playing Septa Unella on the show, recently revealed she was groped on set while filming the ITV show Benidorm.

Waddingham played Tonya Dyke in the sixth season of the show, which aired back in 2014. “I’d never been groped in my life, but I was groped three times in one week in Benidorm,” she told The Mirror.

Without naming any cast or crew member specifically, Waddingham said, “To get on set, I had to walk through the hotel dressed as Tonya in some non-existent bikini and high heels with blokes gawping at me… or rather groping me.”

“I had to stop myself doing what I’d instinctively do – knock their blocks off – because I was working. A little angel on my shoulder was going, ‘Leave it, Hannah’. But I really wanted to take off my five-inch wedges and whack them.”

A few months ago, Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco accused Marilyn Manson of sexual assault. It seems women are not safe anywhere. How can we curb such instances of violence against women? Tell us in the comments below!

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”- A Shakespearean phrase perfectly sums up the world as a theatre. Two veteran actors from two hugely popular series recently got together to show the world the beauty of theatre. Game of Thrones’ Oliver Ford Davies and The Crown’s Stephen Boxer teamed up on stage at Cambridge Arts Theatre in A Splinter of Ice. Oliver played Maester Cressen in the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones.

He played novelist Graham Greene, while Stephen Boxer played the notorious Soviet spy Kim Philby on stage. The show ran from 20th to 24th July at the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

It is a fascinating historical drama exploring the truth and real friendship between Graham Greene and Kim Philby. Moscow, 1987. As the Cold War begins to thaw, an extraordinary reunion takes place.

As Graham Greene and Kim Philby raise their vodka glasses after 30 years have passed, Brown’s compelling play asks whether Philby betrayed his friend as well as his country, and how much the writer of The Third Man knew about Philby’s secret life.

Oliver Ford Davies won ‘Best Actor’ at the 1990 Olivier Awards for his performance in David Hare’s Racing Demon at the National Theatre.

Last year, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill presented the theatre drama, Sadie. Are you interested in theatre? Talk to us in the comments below!
