Celebrating Good Times on the GoT Set


Filming in Spain is dwindling down to its final days but in recent news, it seems the production team surprised Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) with her very own ‘Mother of Dragons’ themed cake.

According to WiCNet:

A few tweets suggested it was “her name day” but we’re unclear if they mean the name day of the character she plays, or the name day of Clarke herself.

I do not believe they were celebrating the name day of Clarke herself because her actual name day falls on May 1 but as far as the character, I’m not entirely sure when her birthday is. Does anyone else? Are there any clues in the books?

WiCNet speculates:

The Most Precise ASOIAF Timeline In Existence puts it at May 5th. 

Not entirely sure if this is true but WiCNet did provide a source for this assumption so check it out HERE

Whatever the reason, this is absolutely so sweet of the production team and the cake looks fantastic and it’s just amazing! Check out some more photos below!


If you cannot read it, it says, ‘We fight and die for your honor, Oh glorious queen’

How sweet! Also, the Targaryen house sigil is a nice tough as well!

‘Game of Thrones’ Telltale Game in the Works

Maybe you’ve heard of Telltale Games and maybe you haven’t. But, if you happened to have played their ‘Walking Dead’ season games then you most likely know who they are. That is what makes me so excited for this game! I love the ‘Walking Dead’ games and I cannot wait to see how they pull off ‘Game of Thrones’.

The official announcement was released in 2013 but it said to be released by the end of 2014 although no official date has been announced.

According to GameSpot:

Over the past two months, the developer has released various teasers about the game’s setting, but we have not yet heard much in a way of specifics. What Telltale has said, is that its Game of Thrones title will be “taking advantage of all the [series’] fiction.”

Well, this sounds exciting! Telltale does amazing stories and I cannot wait to check this out! What does everyone else think? Wanting to play or do you want to skip this one?

It also seems that the company is currently working on a ‘Borderlands’ spinoff and a third season for ‘The Walking Dead’

Charles Dance Returns to the Small Screen for Syfy Miniseries

Charles Dance returns to the small screen to appear in Syfy’s new mini-series ‘Childhood’s End’. We last saw Dance portraying Tywin Lannister who was killed in last season’s finale episode.

According to IGN:

The series, based on Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel, “follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the mysterious overlords.” Karellen (Dance) is the Overlords’ ambassador, and first makes contact with human Ricky Stormgren. Karellen quickly wins over the human population, but when he refuses to show his physical appearance and only speaks through Ricky, Earth’s people begin to question Karellen’s motives.

Wow. Seems intense. Almost like a mix between ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ and ‘War of the Worlds’. I could probably watch this. Although, with it appearing on Syfy, I have my hesitations about graphics.

‘Childhood’s End’ is set to be a six-hour mini-series that is to be directed by Nick Hurran who has worked on Sherlock and Doctor Who.

So, who is preparing to watch it when it airs? A release date is still unknown but it sounds interesting enough.

GoT Info You Have to Know!

In a recent article, posted on a website called hallels, tons of information about the upcoming season was revealed including news about the release date, some updates on the flashbacks D&D said would appear, and even some changes the creators are making to the show. Beware! This may contain spoilers!

Evidently the photo I mentioned a few days ago picturing Daenerys and Tyrion together for the first time is expected to be a scene from the premiere episode.

The author of the article explains:

The “Game of Thrones” book version showed a long narrative on how Tyrion escaped, after killing his father Tywin – his enslavement, the humiliation he had to endure by becoming a dwarf performer and finally how he joined a group of mercenaries. 

Not going to lie, this seems like an intense narrative that I would have loved to see played out but it seems show-runners are cutting all this together and jumping right into the Tyrion/Daenerys story line. Have they even met up in the books yet? This may be interesting….

Flashbacks are still going to happen for S5 even though D&D started off the show saying they would never use this technique. They also said that about slow-motion but they have used that at least one or two times in the series. Remember Jon cradling Ygritte when she died? Notice how the characters in the back ground were slowed down a bit? If not, go back and check it out! It makes the scene 10x more emotional! Anywho, back to flashbacks. There are still speculations as to who will be featured in them. It was confirmed some time ago that the show-runners had cast a young Cersei so it seems that she will be the forerunner for these flashbacks. However, some other speculate Tywin returning (you can check out my post about Charles Dance not being completely left out of season 5) and others speculate maybe the return of Ned Stark. Hmmmm…does this mean that Sean Bean will be returning?! O.o

The article has no definite release date as of yet but I have heard rumors of a late March, early April premiere. Much like last year but we do know is that the games will continue in 2015!

So, who is excited for the new season!? Anything that you don’t like about what they are doing? Anything you prefer? I’m curious! As a non-book reader, it is hard to really have an opinion on scenes that will be cut but, at the same time, it would be nice to see some of the key scenes people have talked about/talk about appear on screen. Ah well, beggars can’t be choosers right?

Iron Islands to not be Featured in S5




As we know, filming has been well-documented so far giving fans and insight to Dorne, King’s Landing, and Mereen. However, it has now been clarified that season 5 will be omitting the Iron Islands subplot. Why? Well, Watchers on the Wall found this out through EW:

While the Dorne-based subplot will be in season five, producers have previously indicated the Iron Islands subplot has been omitted. [The producers] said they doing one of them [Dorne or Iron Islands]. Later they announced they were doing Dorne. 

This is suggesting that whatever the Iron Islands has in store for fans will have to wait until season 6. So, does this mean we have to wait to find out what happened to Yara after she escaped Dreadfort trying to rescue Theon? Hmmmm….what does everyone else think? Are we happy they are focusing more on Dorne or would some prefer to see the Iron Islands? I, for one, am excited for Dorne so I’ll deal with the omission but I know there are Greyjoy fans out there. Hopefully the decision will be for the best!

GoT Received More Than They Were Bargaining For With Open Casting Call

We, as fans, would know how awesome it would be if we were able to be an extra on Game of Thrones but I don’t think the show-runners know how awesome fans think it would be. In a recent casting call for a pivotal battle scene for the upcoming season, the show-runners asked for 600 extras. However, it seems they received more than they bargained for when 86,000 people applied!


According to The Independent:

Many of the fans hoping to be a part of GoT history needed the money, but one applicant, according to Entertainment Weekly, took holiday from his high-level banking job to feature in the show. 

One, I find that awesome because it just shows how far this show has spread but overall, it really makes me wonder how they narrowed it down. I mean, how do you narrow down 86,000 people to 600 people?

Sophie Turner & Gwendoline Christie filming in N. Ireland

Okay, so I’ve been recently focusing on the excitement coming out of Spain but filming is still happening in Northern Ireland. In recent news, it seems that Gwendoline Christie and Sophie Turner have been spotted filming for the upcoming season. However, there are no photos at this point but hopefully there will be some soon.

According to WiCNet:

Gwendoline Christie has been on and off her horse for the last couple of days. No word how Pod’s doing on his horse.

This is really all the information they could give on Gwendoline at the moment so it sounds as if she is traveling but it does make you wonder what happened to Pod since she was traveling with him at the end of last season. However, a small snippet of the article mentioned Oathkeeper which was the sword Jaime gave to Brienne last season. Hopefully we’ll be seeing her kick ass again this season.

As for Sophie Turner, WiCNet had this to say:

Sophie Turner [has] found a weapon and has become ‘Dark Sansa’.

Just that little bit is enough to satisfy me. After her sudden transformation at the end of last season, I’m excited to know what’s going to happen for her. But, it does also bring up the question that since Gwendoline and her having been filming in nearby locations, is it a possibility they may cross paths this coming season? What does everyone think? What do you want to see?

Sand Snakes to appear in S5

In recent weeks, we have found out that Spain would be the filming location for Dorne and now we have received even more news of characters coming out of that location. After Oberyn Martell’s disturbing death last season, we are now being introduced to at least three of his daughters who are referred to as the Sand Snakes.

These characters are originally introduced in the Dance of Dragons novel and they are the illegitimate daughters of Oberyn. Also, just like the North uses ‘Snow’ to represent illegitimacy, Dorne uses ‘Sand’ for the same purpose.

According to International Business Times:

The Sand Snakes will be arriving on the scene in Season 5 as a result of their father’s death at the hands (very literally) of Gregor Clegane. In the books, the daughter’s urge Dorne to declare war in retribution for their father’s death, carrying out secret missions to advance their cause and agitating the people of Dorne. Some of them are eventually imprisoned for their warmongering. 

As is their right to be angry over the father’s death, but let’s face it, he did monologue a bit too much during that fight. I mean, did anyone else wish he would stop talking and just kill the mountain? I get that he wanted the Mountain to admit the injustice done to his sister but, goodness, I was freaking out.

Anywho, like stated, three of the daughters have already been cast.
Rosabell Laurenti Sellers will play Tyene Sand, Jessica Henwick will play Nymeria Sand, and Keisha Castle-Hughes will play Obara Sand.

So, what does everyone think? Excited for the Sand Snakes? I think three strong and fierce female characters will be fantastic!

Natalie Dormer Takes to the Big Screen



In recent news, it seems the lovely Natalie Dormer who portrays the mischievous Margaery Tyrell will be taking some time away from the small screen to film another movie. But, don’t worry, she’ll be back on Game of Thrones still plotting against Cersei Lannister as we’ve seen these past few seasons.

According to moviefone:

Natalie Dormer has signed on her first starring role, and it sounds awesome. Dormer will star in “The Forest,” which is about a woman who goes searching for her twin in Japan’s infamous Aokigahara Forest.

Sounds interesting enough…if she’s searching for her twin, will she play the twin too? Double the Dormer? Guess we’ll find out but this is where it gets interesting…and creepy. I don’t know much about Japanese culture or the land itself but MovieFone further provided information about the forest and what will make this movie an ultimate thriller:

Aokigahar Forest is also known as the Suicide Forest, and it’s one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. According to Atlas Obscura, “Japanese spirtualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have permeated Aokigahara’s trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest’s depths. 

Now if that doesn’t sound twisted, I don’t know what does. I had never heard of this forest until now but it sounds interesting. Don’t know if I would want to take a trip through that forest or not but, what I do know, is that it sounds like it will make one heck of a thriller film. Makes me wonder if they are going to film there. I doubt it…especially if the superstition is true.

I love a good horror film and I haven’t seen a good one in a long time so I’m super excited about this. As stated, Natalie Dormer takes the starring role, David Goyer who wrote the “Dark Knight” trilogy and “Batman v Superman” will produce, Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca re-wrote the script, and Jason Zada will make his directorial debut. Fun fun!

If you are now putting this on a list of films to see, don’t fret, you can still check out Natalie in GoT season 5 and also in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in November where she takes on the role as Cressida….super excited about that as well!

I really hope you enjoyed this! What does everyone think? Excited about this film? Excited to see Natalie in something other than GoT? Further, you can check out the rest of the article HERE
