Spoilers driving you mad? A UK insurer will pay you £100 for spoiled Game of Thrones episodes.

With just one episode left before Game of Thrones concludes forever, spoilers are raining left and right, and unless you are okay with knowing all the twists beforehand, its a very dangerous time for fans. But if you live in the United Kingdom and have had your viewing experience ruined by errant Game of Thrones spoilers, a UK insurer has your back.

Endsleigh Insurance Services has announced a first of its kind ‘Spoiler Package’ exclusively for Game of Thrones fans who have received spoilers about the show from social media, news outlets, or friends and family. Though cheekily marketed as a ‘spoiler insurance’, this is in effect a fun contest of sort, where 10 lucky winners will be awarded NOW TV streaming passes (for an uninterrupted GoT marathon whenever they feel like) and a ‘reimbursement’ of £100 (about $127).

Because of the time zone differences between the US and the UK, the HBO show airs at 2 am in the UK, and a lot of time passes before fans are able to get up in the morning and catch the show. By that time the world wide web is already filled with spoilers.

Endsleigh is seeking to address this scenario. Endsleigh’s Head of Marketing Julia Alpan said:

“Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows of the last decade and the finale promises to bring in some of the largest audiences on record. With the show historically airing on US screens ahead of the UK, spoilers have always been an issue – so we wanted to address that head on with the first ever spoiler insurance policy, that will offer financial compensation for anyone whose day is ruined by an unwanted plot reveal.”

The package can be claimed retroactively, as in you can claim ‘spoiler damage’ for any episode previously aired, as well as the one slated for May 19th. The catch? You have to provide evidence of the spoiling offence to back up your claim. A description of the worst spoiler you have heard/experienced and any images, screenshots, tweets, Facebook posts, or news articles can be added as verifiable evidence.

The claim period closes on 26th May and the results will be announced on 31st May. You can apply for the ‘spoiler package here.

Digital Spy shortlisted 150 shows for their readers, and they voted for their favourite shows. The shows were curated from viewing figures, popularity ratings, newsworthiness and online presence. As expected the cream rose to the top. Game of Thrones was favourited by the most number of voters, showing off its popularity even after it ended more than a year ago.

The list also included other famous shows like Breaking Bad and Peaky Blinders from the past two decades. Despite the controversial final season, the series seems to have maintained its fan base. It’s a big win for Game of Thrones fans from all over the world!

The New Year brings with it new hopes and opportunities for everyone around the world. People all over the world are trying to get back on their feet after everything that happened in the Red Wedding year. Many are trying to get a fresh start, including some of Game of Thrones stars. Emilia Clarke, famous for playing Daenerys Targaryen, recently sold off her lavish California home at $4.4 million.

The modern home in Los Angeles’ artsy beachside Venice neighbourhood was truly a fit for the Queen of Dragons. The 2,817-square-foot home was built in 2009. It includes two bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The gated property features a courtyard with a 30-foot pool and multiple areas for lounging, including a covered space. The front patio has 80-year-old olive trees. The 0.12-acre property offers privacy behind its walls and mature greenery. It is also conveniently close to the beach and hip shopping and dining around the corner on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Clarke paid $4.6 million for the property in 2016, records show. She put it on the market for just under $5 million in August. It sold just before the end of the year after a price cut in November.

This might indicate Emilia plans to stay in England permanently. Earlier in 2020, Maisie Williams expressed her desire to move to France with her boyfriend. Do you have any such plans? Talk to us in the comments below!

The year 2020 was tough for people all around the world. In times like these, they need a distraction for momentary relief. That’s where the entertainment industry steps in. The artists work really hard on and off-screen to manage their job as well as their family. Some put up a smile even when they face grave problems in real life, like Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa. Entertainment Weekly recently honoured Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal for his performance on The Mandalorian.

Pascal is one of the actors who was titled Entertainer of The Year, 2020 by Entertainment Weekly. The show Mandalorian kept the audience hooked all through the year, pretty much like how Game of Thrones did for a decade. Moreover, Pedro was a part of both.

It is why I wanted to do this show. Selfishly, I knew [the Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda] was likely to make people fall in love with the show,” Pedro explained to Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation.”

Keeping viewers interested in an act for such a long time is not an easy job. Talk to us and congratulate Pedro over his achievement in the comments below!
