Game of Thrones made many of its actors’ household names. Some of those actors literally grew up with the show. By the end of the series, two girls from House of Stark, Maisie Williams a.k.a. Arya Stark and Sophie Turner a.k.a. Sansa Stark grew up to be immensely popular stars. Now as we see likes of Turner branch out to different projects it’s natural that they become nostalgic and remember the show that made them so popular. Read on!

Turner is going to be soon seen in an upcoming Quibi series Survive. The trailer for Survive was released a week ago and it was received very well by the fans around the world. Turner recently spoke with Conan O’Brien and talked about her upcoming project. She talked candidly about everything but perhaps the most interesting revelation was the wolves connection with her former show!

Now, we all know that wolves were an important part of Thrones. In fact, when Jon Snow was not shown petting his wolf in the final season all hell broke loose! After exactly a year later, in Survive, Turner has now got yet another chance to be with wolves but there is a twist. In the interview, Turner revealed that it was the same team that had worked on wolves in Thrones.

“Actually, yeah. We were working with the people who provided the wolves for Game of Thrones… so it was actually quite horrible because, you know, in Game of Thrones, the wolves are our pets — are like our soulmates, kind of. And on this, I have to basically, like, fight a wolf and try to kill the thing. And so I found it to be quite symbolic, actually. You know? Like, Game of Thrones had just ended. So I was, you know, figuratively killing the wolf and ending my career.”

Life really does some strange things, doesn’t it? Speaking of which, Turner has been really vocal recently about the social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak. She had, in fact, blasted the fellow actress Evangeline Lilly, who had said that she will continue to do business as usual and that she won’t self-quarantine.

Turner had then taken to her Instagram and urged people to stay inside.

“Here’s the tea. Stay inside. Don’t be fucking stupid! Even if you count your ‘freedom’ over…I don’t know, what is it…like your health! I don’t give a ffffff… about your freedom. You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you by doing this. So, stay inside guys. It’s not cool, and it’s not big, and it’s not clever. And that’s the tea!”

Well, good folks, stay inside and listen to her!

Survive will be releasing on April 6 only on Quibi App. Don’t forget to tune in!

Game of Thrones was a blissful escape from the real world for a great number of fantasy lovers. The show still holds the record for most Emmy wins, which speaks volumes of its success. The cast of the show was interviewed by Digital Spy recently. They had a lot of great things to say about the show.

Charles Dance (Tywin): “The writing is really, really good. The production values are phenomenal. It’s a very classy piece of work.”

Michelle Fairley (Catelyn): “I think it’s the humane satires, it’s intrigue, it’s deception, it’s honour. I think if you take away the setting it’s the stuff that everybody deals with in their life. It’s about family, it’s about honour, trust, it’s about betrayal.”

Liam Cunningham (Davos): “A lot of people have gone, ‘I’m not into fantasy’ – it’s not about that. There are extraordinary characters in extreme situations with their lives, their loves, their hate, their betrayals, their jealousies and set against this backdrop of fantasy.”

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys): “You can take the magic away and it stands alone as a compelling drama with complex characters. And it’s got themes running through it that people can relate to. Family and jealousy and rivalry… but then you put the magic on top of it and it makes it something even more special.”

The first episode of a show determines it’s success in a big way. It helps to create a sort of mystery amongst the audience that keeps them hooked for the entirety of the series. Game of Thrones raised the bar for TV shows to unprecedented levels. Filming such a great show is no easy task, it required dedicated efforts from both the cast and the crew. The showrunners failed with the original pilot episode, but they didn’t stop there. With a lot of hard work and planning, they turned the show into a grand success. All the viewers still have in mind the picture of the first episode. Game of Thrones’ Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor, loved it as well. He talked to Digital Spy in an interview reminiscing the event.

Nairn said, “There was one mass influx at the start – we filmed the Lannisters arriving in Winterfell. That for many years was the biggest on-screen gathering of the cast. There were people there who didn’t survive for very much longer, and there were people there who you would never meet again. “

“I got to meet everybody over the years at fan events, conventions and table reads. We were filming in so many different locations, it took a long time. I only met Charles Dance for the first time I think about two years ago.”

Every popular franchise has a little story behind its road to success. They face many challenges, but with great efforts, they finally take off to reach great heights. Game of Thrones had a pretty rocky start – the original pilot episode itself was scrapped. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran) relive the humble beginnings of the show with Digital Spy.

Nairn recalls, “There was a huge sense of anticipation. No-one really knew how the show would be received, but one thing that was clear was how much effort HBO was putting into it. When you walk onto these sets, the sort of level of detail they have gone to, all the research they had done, you just knew this was going to be something special. “

“People were working so hard. As I said it was my first acting job, but I would see other actors saying, ‘Oh my God, I haven’t seen anything like this, this is going to be something different’.”

Isaac Hempstead-Wright talked about growing up with the show. He said, “It’s been a pretty great place to grow up. I mean, the advice, and the people, and the wealth of experienced, interesting, clever people that I’ve had access to as a teenager growing up.”
