Acting takes a lot of guts, skill and hard work, especially if it’s for a show as big as Game of Thrones. Hannah Waddingham, who has recently earned an Emmy nomination for her role on Ted Lasso, was really brave when auditioning for Game of Thrones. She was extra worried when she tried out for the role of Septa Unella because she was pregnant at the time, and thought that she was at the wrong place.

She spoke to Kate Thornton on White Wine Question Time podcast about juggling her career as a single mum. Waddingham said, “[The show] was so established. But I had been so busy doing theatre, eight shows a week. And so I knew of it of course, but it was season five when I went to the audition for it.”

I was nearly eight and a half months pregnant, like pregnant from the cheekbones out, you know, when your face joins in, in the last month! I walked in, and honestly, I genuinely thought I was in the wrong place.”

“Because all the women were like, 70-odd, about five foot two and about 20 foot wide. I was like: ‘Right. I appreciate that I’m pregnant at the moment but I’m definitely in the wrong casting.”

Apparently I’d been put in as the wild card. So when I went in for the meeting, and met [producers] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], and I was a bit like: ‘Hello. I don’t really know why I’m here and I know nothing about Game of Thrones. And I’m so pregnant, I might have an accident right here!”

She explained that in the middle of the audition she accidentally hit a casting assistant on the leg with a wooden ladle. She said: “In the middle of the tape, when I’m meant to be really nasty, I went: ‘Oh my god, darling. Are you all right?”

MCU’s latest movie Eternals is closing in, and fans all over the world are looking forward to witness a little Game of Thrones union onscreen. Game of Thrones alums Richard Madden and Kit Harington are playing important roles in the movie, and we can’t wait for them to face each other once again. However, there’s one more celebrity fans have been speculating about being in the movie. And that is One Direction vocalist Harry Styles.

Jimmy Fallon tried getting more information out of the Game of Thrones star on an episode of The Tonight Show, but he failed miserably.

He asked about the rumour to which Harington replied, “No idea. Unless I’ve been recast and he’s playing my part, not a clue.” That’s a gamely response, but the host wasn’t going to let him off the hook that easily. Fallon asked if he ran into Styles or if they filmed separately, to which the Black Knight actor replied, “No,” and then, “Ooh! No comment,” with a laugh.

Kit Harington was present on the show to celebrate Fallon’s completion of 1500 episodes of The Tonight Show. He appeased the fans with a graceful cover of “Drops of Jupiter “ on the occasion.

Do you think Harry Styles is secretly playing a role in Eternals? Does Jon Snow really doesn’t know or is he acting coy? Talk to us in the comments below!

It is quite common to see successful people often pushing their children to follow in their own footsteps in the name of legacy. Well, that’s not the case with Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa, who loves to break stereotypes. Momoa doesn’t want his children to follow in his footsteps.

In an interview with ETonline, Jason, who is a father of two children, shared that he doesn’t want his kids to pursue acting. The 42-year-old actor said, “Aw man, one of them wants to do it and I’m not a fan,” Momoa said. “I don’t want them to.”

I don’t know. I’ll try my damnedest to keep ‘em out of it,” he added. “I love storytelling, I love theatrical things, I like directing and filmmaking, but I just want them to, you know, really to go for other things.”

“If they (really) want to, maybe,” adding, “But I don’t want them to get into acting. It’s very hard on people and I don’t want them to have that pressure. I’m tough, I can handle it, but I wouldn’t want to put someone I love (through) that.”

The ‘Aquaman’ actor shares daughter Lola, 14, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 12½, with wife Lisa Bonet. The couple is married since 2017.

Momoa was recently seen on Sweet Girl, where he plays a father of a young girl. Do you agree with Momoa? Talk to us in the comments below!

George R. R. Martin is one of the most celebrated writers in the world today. The TV adaptation of his work, Game of Thrones, has been dubbed the greatest TV show of the 21st century. Fans of the highly popular TV series are familiar with his work, especially how he writes intrinsically complicated political drama alongside the most tragic deaths. He has teamed up with Hidetaka Miyazaki, the influential creator of the video game series Dark Souls, to create Elden Ring. Miyazaki told Entertainment Weekly why Game of Thrones fans will recognize Martin’s magic touch while exploring the game’s lore.

George R.R. Martin wrote the original mythos for this game,” Kitao said through a translator. “He created a backstory or a history that takes place many, many years before the events of the game itself, and he wrote this in collaboration with Miyazaki. They consulted and they discussed and they exchanged ideas, but George Martin was the spearhead of that writing process initially.”

Kitao continued, “Once that original mythos was complete, George R.R. Martin was kind enough to leave that in our hands, so to speak, and to do with that what we will.”

“George provided this lineage or these character bloodlines and, in true George fashion, he created a lot of political intrigue and a lot of these familial ties that shaped a lot of our characters in the game world currently as it stands. It was a really interesting process, and it felt unrestricted despite him having written this key piece.”
