By Lightbringer on

As we know, filming of Game of Thrones Season 5 is well underway. We’ve already seen a few teases from the set at The Wall courtesy of Carice van Houten, and now, thanks to Fireandblood10 on Reddit, we have our first glimpses of the filming happening at Sallagh Braes.

Yesterday, the fan witnessed two scenes being filmed, one of which included Brienne and Pod, who seem to have recovered their horses, and were seen riding down a hill together.

Amazing makeup inspired by Game of Thrones houses

By Lightbringer on

Makeup Artist Allison Chase has created an amazing set of makeup looks inspired by Game of Thrones.

Chase is no stranger to using makeup and body paint to bring fantasy to life. Her previous creations include an impressive Smaug, an incredibly creepy blue monster for Crypticon, and a Daenerys that will never lose her dragons.

Obviously a fan of Game of Thrones, when Season 4 came to an end she threw herself into this new project as a distraction from the long wait. Chase created unique makeup looks for 9 prominent houses from the series for this recently released photo shoot, and while the makeup alone is stunning, it’s the added details that make these shots even cooler. With a winter rose for the Starks, a golden hand for the Lannisters, an eyepatch for the Greyjoys, and a flayed man that’s a little too convincing, it’s hard to pick a favorite.

By Lightbringer on

Monday was the first day back at work for some of our Game of Thrones cast members, and over the past few days they’ve been joined by many of their counterparts! The cast have continued to announce their arrivals and share their excitement about being back to work on social media, and have been spotted around Belfast together.

Carice van Houten has proved again to be the best source if you want some peeks into production. She shared a picture of herself today sporting Melisandre’s lovely red locks, as well as the lacing up of some appropriately badass red boots today.


Maisie Williams promises more revenge for Arya in Season 5, hopes to keep surprising book readers

By Lightbringer on

Season 4 of Game of Thrones brought about a number of surprises for not only fans of the television series, but book readers alike. Additional scenes, and diversions from the written story were plentiful, sometimes to great delight, and sometimes to dismay. Looking ahead to Season 5, it’s safe to say we’re in for some more surprises.

In a new interview with TV Line, Maisie Williams says that even the actors are left in the dark about some of the finer details of their story until the last minute, and that she hopes the show continues to shock all of its viewers.

Maisie reveals that although she’s been filled in on an interesting development for Arya, she doesn’t know how it’s going to happen, and that’s usually how it is.

“I know a couple of really cool things happen in the books with Arya, and I just had a meeting about about a certain thing that happens to Arya, but I still don’t know how it happens. And that’s what it was like last year; I was learning fight scenes, even though I didn’t know who I’d be fighting or why I’d be fighting them. People think the cast members know all the ins and outs, but we really don’t.”

Curtain Call: Aimee Richardson

By Thoros on

Some of us had a feeling it was coming, others wished it wouldn’t, and now it’s become reality. Our sweet Aimee Richardson will no longer portray the role of Myrcella Baratheon in Game of Thrones. We can now all say that we share something in common with Cersei Lannister, as the last time we will have seen our familiar Myrcella, was when she sailed away to Dorne.

Game of Thrones cast members arrive in Belfast to film Season 5

By Lightbringer on

We learned during the Game of Thrones panel at San Deigo Comic-Con this weekend that Kit Harington would return to the set of Game of Thrones today to film a “great scene” for Season 5. It seems Kit wasn’t the only one heading back to work today, as many of the actors took to social media to announce that they were en route to Belfast, or had already arrived.

Carice Van Houten gave us the biggest tease of the day, tweeting a picture of what appears to be a solider of Stannis Baratheon’s army on set, which may very well mean that Kit and Team Dragonstone shared their first day back together.

Sophie Turner says Sansa Stark will use her sexuality to manipulate in Season 5

By Lightbringer on

A lot of interviews have come out of the Game of Thrones cast’s trip to San Diego for Comic-Con, and until now they’ve done their best to keep any details about Season 5 close to their chests. Having just received the scripts for the upcoming season, in a new interview with The Wrap, Sophie Turner drops some hints about what we can expect from Sansa Stark.

When asked what position Sansa will find herself in during Season 5 after lying for Petyr Baelish, Sophie said, “Well now she’s kind of in the position where Baelish isn’t overly sure what Sansa’s about, he doesn’t really know why she stuck up for him. But he’s kind of realizing that she’s a great manipulator, and she’s not this vulnerable young girl anymore. And she’s also realized that she can manipulate him though other means, because now she realizes his weakness is kind of her, and her mother. She’s gonna try to play out her sexuality as much as she can to manipulate him. So that’s what she’s gonna do.”

She adds that the past three seasons have been leading up to this, and Sansa will finally be able to put what’s she learnt into use.

Sophie reveals that she starts filming Season 5 on Wednesday, and she will be shooting exclusively in Belfast this year.

By Lightbringer on

Gwendoline Christie was featured on TV Guide’s Fan Favorites panel yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con. Gwendoline was joined by, Misha Collins (Supernatural), Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black), Sam Heughan (Outlander), John Noble (Sleepy Hollow), Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon a Time), Retta (Parks and Recreation) and Aisha Tyler (Archer) to talk about working on some of television’s most popular series.

In the panel full of laughs, Gwendoline recalls a particularly odd fan encounter while she was in the dentist chair, and the draw of taking on the iconic character of Brienne of Tarth. She says that although Game of Thrones is based on a book series, changes can be made, and the showrunners like to joke around about the fate of their characters.

She reveals what her favorite televisions series are, saying she loves True Detective, and is late to the party, but is currently addicted to Breaking Bad. Near the end of the panel Gwendoline speaks at length about how much she loves Brienne, and how happy she is that the character is celebrated amongst fans despite being different than the norm.
