Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving steadily with its production, and we can expect the series to be here not too far into 2022. The filming for the show has been taking place in Cornwall for the past couple of weeks, as the recent leaks have shown. We captured a glimpse of several details previously unknown, and received an official statement about new characters joining the show. So far everything about the series seems to be promising, and the production will now move to Spain for further filming.

HBO is close to wrapping up its filming in Cornwall, and as previously reported, will be moving to Spain for further shooting. One of the prime locations for the filming of House of The Dragon will be the Spanish castle of La Calahorra, which is being readied at the moment as the production is expected to begin in October.

According to Ideal (via Los Siete Reinos), the show will shoot in the castle of La Calahorra in the province of Granada, Spain for just over a week starting on October 1. According to Hoy, extras have already been called in for costume fittings, and Los Siete Reinos reports that some might have lines of English dialogue.

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as a “rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.

George R.R. Martin is working on 317 new ideas for Game of Thrones spinoffs with HBO, and Winds of Winter

Published

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is a pretty busy man, contrary to what most of the A Song of Ice And Fire fans believe. It has been a decade since the last book in the series came out, and we can understand why a lot of fans are fuming at the delay despite him reassuring them again and again that yes, he is still working on the next book ‘Winds of Winter‘. He has yet once again promised that he is still writing the novel, but along with that, we have some other news for you.

There’s another reason why Martin is so busy nowadays. Apart from working on the Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon, his Wild Cards series, and The Winds of Winter (as he says), he has just revealed that he is working with HBO execs on 317 ideas to develop new Game of Thrones’ successors. Here’s what he wrote on his blog Not A Blog:

George-R.-R.-Martin-shares-a-poem-with-fans-on-his-73rd-birthday-

“I almost titled this post “I’ve been working on the railroad,” but my readers would have taken that the wrong way… and, anyway, it isn’t true. I am one of the owners. Mostly what I have been doing is throwing out ideas and writing checks. Sky’s employees, an energetic and enthusiastic crew, have been doing the work, all those things I mentioned up above and lots more besides. I have not driven a single spike, laid a single rail, reupholstered a seat, crawled under a coach to check the wheels, and I won’t be selling tickets or driving the trains either… though I do reserve the right to blow the whistle now and again. Nor have I been in the kitchen with Dinah. I have working, yes, yes… but not on the railroad.”

“I have been writing WINDS OF WINTER, editing three new Wild Cards books, sitting down with some amazing screenwriters and showrunners to create three hundred and seventeen new GAME OF THRONES successor shows for HBO and HBO Max, and serving as executive producer on various other television and film projects in various stages of development, including DARK WINDS for AMC, JOKERTOWN for Peacock, ROADMARKS and WHO FEARS DEATH for HBO. Oh, and I was the executive producer on our (recently wrapped) short film of Howard Waldrop’s NIGHT OF THE COOTERS. So I have been working. Maybe too bloody hard, but that’s another tale for another blog post… though these days even finding the time to blog is hard”

'Pride and Prejudice' star Jennifer Ehle was originally up for the role of Catelyn Stark on Game of Thrones

When Game of Thrones first started filming, it was a jumbling mess. The original pilot was so bad, it had to be refilmed. Back then, no one would have guessed it would turn out to be the Emmy-winning juggernaut we all know today. The record viewership, budget, and the fame that followed later turned the show into a pop culture icon. The casting of the show went through a number of changes, and a number of actors who had a chance to be on the highly acclaimed series but refused now regret not going through with it. Pride and Prejudice fame Jennifer Ehle is up on that list, but according to her she doesn’t regret missing out on the Game of Thrones role she was offered.

stark-8924348

Talking to the Daily Beast, Ehle revealed she was originally up for the role of Lady Catelyn Stark, and had even filmed the pilot. She said, “Well, it was entirely personal. My daughter was seven months old when we did the pilot. It was too soon for me to be working, emotionally and bonding-wise, but I needed to do it and I was also passionate about the books. I loved the idea of telling that story. I finished the first book when I was in the hospital getting ready to have my daughter. My husband actually went out and got the second book for me. I handed the first book to the midwife and started the second one. When I went back for my six-week checkup with the midwife, she had started the second book.”

“I love Game of Thrones, but it was too soon, and I did The King’s Speech immediately after. Then did a play immediately after that. I found out that the series was then picked up at the end of working through six months when I really just wanted to hold my baby, even though I was aware of the incredible privilege of having done the three pieces of work that I got to do in a row. I think everything worked out beautifully, because clearly, the show is what it was meant to be.”

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high-priority projects at HBO currently underway. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. A few weeks ago, the House of The Dragon team had to take a temporary break from filming in the Spanish city of Caceres as an important crew member fell ill due to coronavirus. The filming in Spain however has been completed and the production is in full swing. And the showrunners seem quite excited about the progress.

In a recent interview with Newsweek, co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik said, “I’ve been involved in the franchise for a while. And I think it’s really important that the franchise evolve. It’s not the same story, it’s not the same characters, and therefore, it needs visually, evolution. But at the same time, you know, people want to see Game of Thrones, and we shouldn’t short change them of that.”

“I think most of the people coming into the show have seen the show and so they have in their mind, already a version of what they believe to be Game of Thrones.” Sapochnik thinks each of the actors have adapted to their roles quite quickly as a result, “They were all quite adept at finding their feet — [but] at the same time it’s also nice to hear some fresh opinions, because otherwise we get a bit stuck in our ways, and I become the curmudgeon, which I’d hate to be.”

Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows of the 21st century, and even though the show’s ending didn’t please all its fans, the cast and the amazing cinematography stand tall as one of the best to have ever been on a TV show. There’s a reason why so many great actors wanted to be a part of the show, the list includes MCU’s Elizabeth Olsen, Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown, and quite surprisingly, Succession star Brian Cox.

Cox specializes in playing grizzled, no-nonsense types with a bit of an edge to them, which is why he’s so compelling as media empire head Logan Roy on Succession.

Stupidly, I turned it down in the early days because they didn’t pay enough money,” Cox told Vodzilla back in 2016, shortly after Game of Thrones had wrapped its sixth season. “Now they have more money. And I was silly. I was silly, it was silly, because I’m a complete addict now. But I don’t know what I could play.”

“I just watched my friend Ian McShane and I thought, ‘Ooh, Ian’s in it,’ so I settled down to watch him,” Cox continued. “And I thought, ‘Ian did that?’ and immediately I thought, ‘God, they must have paid him well,’ because I know Ian! And there was Max von Sydow doing that character that he did. So in a way, it’s attracting certain people who do film and, of course, I’ve got friends like Clive Russell and Liam Cunningham—and Charlie Dance is an old pal—being in it. And they had a great time in it.”

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has caused quite a stir on the internet, especially after the first teaser trailer was released recently. There’s no denying it, the upcoming spin-off is the talk of the town. There are murmurs and whispers as HBO has been tight-lipped about a lot of stuff related to the show, but that doesn’t stop curious fans from taking a peek at the filming sites and forming their own theories about the leaks. Game of Thrones fans recently had a great opportunity, when House of The Dragon star Emily Carey, who is playing a younger version of Queen Alicent Hightower on the show, went live on Instagram. And she was more than happy to answer her excited followers, while still keeping the discussion spoiler-free.

Carey was live on her official Instagram recently, and the fans flocked to her feed loaded with House of The Dragon questions. She seemed really excited about the show and tried to answer as much as she could, without revealing any secrets about the prequel. Though we don’t have the full live recording here, we do have some of the questions that were asked during the session via SuccubusFlynn’s Reddit feed.

Q: How would you describe HOTD’s first season in three words?

A: Intense, fiery, exciting.

Q: Have you read F&B?

A: Yes! It is also signed by GRRM himself.

Q: Do you think seeing younger Alicent in HOTD will make her more sympathetic to the audience?

A: Yes!

Q: Did you have any lines that you consider iconic?

A: “Iconic” is a big word, but I had some amazing lines!

She mentioned Milly Alcock and Olivia Cooke and how cool she thinks they are. She also said that she has watched many videos of TheDragonDemands and said he got some analyses right. Carey prefers HOTD over GOT, but possibly due to her role in it. She is also, obviously #teamGreens!

Game of Thrones official Facebook page declares Jon Snow to be 'The Prince That Was Promised'

Published

Game of Thrones had a massive impact on the fantasy genre, playing into several myths and legends inside its universe. Blood was shed, kings were crowned and prophecies were made, all in the name of the one true king. However, not all of the prophecies came to pass, and fans have been scratching their heads for a long time trying to figure out what they meant (or if they even meant anything at all). HBO has finally decided to put to rest one of such intriguing mysteries about the show, that is, who really was ‘The Prince That Was Promised’.

Recently, the Game of Thrones Official Facebook page posted an image of Jon Snow, ascribing the designations he has held in the series. Lord Snow. 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. King in the North. The Bastard of Winterfell. And… Wait for it… “The Prince That Was Promised”.

Fans have been speculating for long who really was the Prince or Princess who was promised, and this post finally puts to rest all the conspiracy theories about who it was meant to be. It was prophesized in the show that the promised prince/princess would play an important role in the final war, and would be a messianic figure destined to save the world from the coming of the Others.

Do you think the declaration satisfies all the criteria of the prophecy? Talk to us in the comments below!

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is in full swing. We’re receiving updates about the filming currently going on in the Portuguese city of stone, Monsanto, via leaks that are reported every other day. Former Doctor Who Matt Smith is playing the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen on the show, one of the key players in the story of House of The Dragon. And his dragon, Caraxes, is going to be one of the meanest, biggest, and baddest beasts in the series.

Smith, in his recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, talked about various aspects of the Game of Thrones prequel, including the release date of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones prequel. As expected, he was tight-lipped and did not dive much into the details, but he did leave a hint for the fans who are waiting impatiently for the series to finally be here. Smith revealed in the podcast:

“We’ve been doing it since March, and I finish in January. It’s tough, it’s a long shoot.”

What does this mean for House of The Dragon? Matt Smith is playing one of the most important characters in the series. If you’ve been following the leaks for the past few months, you will know there’s one person who has been spotted at almost all the filming locations, and that is Matt Smith. We also know that the prequel is going to be a multi-seasoned show, and if we go by the source material Smith’s Daemon Targaryen isn’t supposed to die this early. So we can make an intelligent guess the filming for the first season won’t go on for long after he finishes in January.

When do you think House of The Dragon will arrive? Will it be by mid-2022 or towards the end? Tell us in the comments below!

Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Last month the show was filming at a number of sites in Spain, and it seems they have finally completed filming in the country.

The Game of Thrones prequel filmed a number of important scenes at various sites in Spain, the prominent ones being Trujillo and Caceres. The production at Caceres was halted till November 3 as one of the important crew members was down with covid, and it looks like the team has managed to successfully wrap up filming after the minor delay.

Here are some snaps of the final day shoot in Caceres, tweeted by Portal House of the Dragon Brasil and House The Dragons fanpages:

Parece que as filmagens de #HouseoftheDragon em Cáceres chegaram ao fim! Algumas das últimas imagens mostram um Manto Dourado, parte do cenário e FOGO usado durante as gravações de ontem.

One of the last scenes to be shot at the site appears to be some kind of fire in King’s Landing. Hopefully, we’ll get more information about it, whether it is the result of an insurgency or dragonfyre.
