Alexander Siddig is a Sudanese-born English actor. He is best known for his role of Dr. Julian Bashir in the hit television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, as well as Prince Nasir Al-Subaai in Syriana, and as Imad ad-Din al-Isfahani in Kingdom of Heaven.

Game of Thrones wins mtvU award for ‘OMG Moment of the Year’ at SDCC

By Lightbringer on

Last night at San Diego Comic-Con, mtvU gave out their first ever Fandom Awards during a special event at Petco Park.

The awards were entirely fan voted, and Game of Thrones walked away with the award for “OMG Moment of the Year.” Season 4 was full of shocking moments, but the one to beat them all was King Joffrey’s early demise. Beating out the Breaking Bad and How I Met Your Mother series finales, the release of the new Star Wars cast photo, and Ben Affleck being cast as Batman, the Purple Wedding turned out to be the biggest ‘OMG’ moment of all.

Pedro Pascal surprises guests at Ommegang’s “Valar Morghulis” tasting event

By Lightbringer on

Tonight at the Wired Lounge in San Diego Comic-Con, Brewery Ommegang held a special tasting event for their latest fan-voted Game of Thrones beer, Valar Morghulis. Guests were not only among the first to taste the new Dubbel Ale, but they were treated to a surprise appearance by Pedro Pascal!

Pedro did the honors of pouring the very first glass, and took the first sip of the evening to much fanfare. He then acted as bartender for a number of guests, happily posed for pictures with fans, and spoke with the press.

Pedro tells Access Hollywood, “I just got here, I’m starting to feel a little bit like a rock star. I was pouring some new beer, Valar Morghulis, from the tap and people were cheering, so it really doesn’t get much better than that. I’m pouring beer, people are cheering.”

James Cosmo and Ross Mullan talk Game of Thrones and White Walkers at MCM Manchester

By Lightbringer on

The SDCC storm is about to roll in, but first let’s take a look back to last weekend’s MCM Comic Con in Manchester.

James Cosmo, who portrayed the dearly departed Jeor Mormont, and Ross Mullan, our resident White Walker, were in attendance and participated in a Game of Thrones panel to talk about their work on the series.

MCM Buzz has a great writeup and pictures from the panel, with highlights including:

Both James and Ross enjoy watching the show as much as they enjoyed being a part of it, and James is especially a fan of Peter Dinklage’s work. “Peter has done such an astonishingly good job of that (character) that I can only stand back in admiration.”

Ross discussed his background in working with prosthetics. He took part in ‘mask theatre’ for four years, where he had to wear still masks and learned to use only his body movements to convey the story. “I’ve always been working in the area of animating the in-animate.”

Kristian Nairn shares details about his Australian national tour

By Lightbringer on

Kristian Nairn will take his DJ skills on the road later this year, as he embarks on a six stop Australian national tour. Aptly titled Rave of Thrones, the tour will showcase his deep house mixes while fans enjoy Game of Thrones themed dance parties.

Kristian recently spoke with News.Com.Au about what fans can expect from the shows, and shares some inspirational words about one of his more memorable Game of Thrones scenes.

Although the shows will be Game of Thrones themed, Kristian insists that he won’t be doing any Game of Thrones remixes.

Oh my God — I get a few requests. I’ve tried to do a bootleg and it sounds all right — I don’t feel comfortable crossing the two over. I think the theme is good — I don’t think I could improve it. But I’ve heard a dub-step version of it and it’s terrible.”

Hundreds audition for Game of Thrones Season 5 in Šibenik

By Lightbringer on

On Monday, over 500 Šibenik locals lined up to audition to be an extra in Game of Thrones Season 5. According to the latest report from Šibenik.In, the steps of City Hall were filled for over 21 hours with locals both young and old, hoping to get a chance to appear in the popular series.

The application forms were filled with the standard information (contact, height, weight, etc), but also included some questions more suited to Game of Thrones, including if the applicants would be willing to appear naked, and would agree to a haircut and a shave.

Among the locals were a few familiar faces to Šibenik, including Mayor Željko Burić. When asked by Šibenik.In which role he thought would be perfect for him, he joked, “What do you think I signed up for? The role of the King!” He also commented that the filming of Game of Thrones in Šibenik is extremely important, and he hopes that the city will take advantage of the situation.

All signs point to Game of Thrones Season 5 filming being underway

By Lightbringer on

“The end of July” has been the only answer given as to when Game of Thrones Season 5 would begin filming this year. The end of July has arrived, and as of this week, all signs are pointing to filming already being underway in Northern Ireland.

Downtown Radio shared a picture of a familiar pink ‘GOT’ sign spotted at Scrabo Tower near Newtownards in County Down, which garnered a few comments claiming that signs were also up in Toome and Carryduff. A Twitter user also reported spotting signs in the shadow of the tower as early as the 19th.

Scrabo Tower stands 125 feet (38 meters) high and is topped by a number of turrets. In April of this year the tower was deemed unsafe for visitors due to heavy water damage to its electrical supply and lighting, and has remained closed to the public since. This could mean that the tower was or will be used for exterior shots only.
