GoT Laughs: Westeros gets Frozen, the worst wedding planner ever, and Mad Men meets Thrones

By Lightbringer on

Game of Thrones is back, and the laughs machine is in full swing!

Disney’s “Frozen” and its smash hit “Let It Go” has been the inspiration for many parodies recently, so it was only a matter of time before Game of Thrones got its very own. Loot Crate turns “Let It Go” into “Westeros” as Daenerys, Jon Snow, and Joffrey sing about their burning desires to rule, protect, and kill.

Today we have a new segment of AxeyFabulous! ready for you, featuring WinterIsComing.net’s own Fire and Blood. The man himself is currently traveling, but sends his regards (without the sword through the heart). If you should happen to cross paths with him in the vicinity of Utah, avoid interacting with him at all costs as extended road trips make him grumpy.

So without further ado, here is this week’s review of the latest Game of Thrones episode, “The Lion and the Rose.”

Game of Thrones cast reacts to the Purple Wedding, and imagine how they would have done it

By Lightbringer on

We’ve seen the massive Purple Wedding reaction on Twitter, Youtube, and in many reviews of Sunday’s episode (both written and video), now let’s hear from the Game of Thrones cast.

A number of press outlets have shared quotes from the cast about the loss of their longtime co-star Jack Gleeson, the gruesome death scene, how their characters will react, and entertainingly, how they would have killed the King.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop from the cast on their character’s reactions to Joffrey’s death.

Sophie Turner’s insight on Sansa’s reaction to watching Joffrey die: “It says in the script that obviously it’s horror, but she’s seen this kind of stuff before and it’s kind of more a sigh of relief than anything — finally it’s happened. Finally, after all these years. You don’t want to see anyone die, but it’s like this massive weight off her shoulders.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) on what Jaime secretly felt (or didn’t) for his son: “I don’t think he has any love for Joffrey. He’s never been close to him. But he has huge love and affection for his mother, and he sees that effect.”

Charlies Dance (Tywin Lannister) on how Joffrey’s death impacts Tywin’s plans: “Well, it hasn’t come a moment too soon, really. It does help Tywin, because I’ve sorted out who I want to marry who. It’s all about maintaining the status quo really — making sure the Lannisters stay up there. Whether it’s getting help from the Dornish or the Tyrells, the most prominent house in the seven kingdoms is the house of Lannister, so I have to do whatever it takes to make sure that that situation stays. And way over in the east there’s these continuous rumors about this Targaryan girl with her dragons that I’m trying not to think about — let’s cross that bridge when we come to it. But now that we’ve got Joffrey out of the way, the young man that I want to put on the throne I can put on the throne … the death of Joffrey is fortuitous because he was kind of like a little mosquito anyway — annoying, that you’re swatting all the time.”

Natalie Dormer on Margaery Tyrell starting from scratch after a politically disastrous Purple Wedding

By Lightbringer on

If Margaery Tyrell was hoping for an unforgettable wedding day, her wish was certainly granted. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Natalie Dormer talks about what’s next for her character in the wake of the Purple Wedding, her unique Game of Thrones strategy, and more.

Margaery plays the game of thrones quite different from some of the other characters, who often resort to manipulation or violence. Natalie explains, “She brings a very sort of modern PR angle to it, sort of canvassing the common people’s hearts and minds type of thing. I think of her as like a hybrid sorts — Michelle Obama, with a Kate Middleton or a Princess Di. That’s what she’s aiming for.”

She also believes that it isn’t all for show, “I think she definitely cares. The Tyrells are not the Lannisters, and it’s more interesting if she’s sincere.”

Westeros has proved to have a poor track record for weddings, but so has Margaery Tyrell, losing her first husband to a shadow assassin, and her second to poison. So where does she go from here?

Director Alex Graves on the complex Season 4 finale, his absence for Season 5, and more

By Lightbringer on

Director Alex Graves has been giving some great interviews this week in response to his work on The Lion and the Rose. We’ll be seeing more of his work on Sunday, as well as in the eighth, and tenth episode, which we’ve heard is going to be quite a finale.

In a new interview with Collider, Graves reveals even more about that final episode, saying “there’s a battle in the tenth episode that is so VFX heavy and so complex, even on a feature level, that won’t be done until June right before it airs.”

The interview is quite lengthy and worth the read, covering the more technical side of production, and his other projects. Here are a few Thrones related questions about how the show is different from others, how he put together the final wedding sequence, and why we’ll be missing his work on Season 5.

I’m so anticipating the rest of the season.  Talk a little bit about how making Game of Thrones is different than the other shows you’ve been involved with.  Whether it be in terms of getting revisions the night before of the script or just in general, like the pre-production schedule.

GRAVES: Yeah, it’s very different.  For starters, it’s really like making a ten-hour movie, and I don’t mean that in terms of scale or coolness.  It’s a ten-hour story that is very specific.  Most TV shows are writing the next episode while you’re directing the one you’re doing, and they’re trying to figure out what they’re going to do and they’re putting it all together.  On Game of Thrones they write all ten episodes in advance, and if you’ve done your homework, you’ve read all ten episodes, so you know where you are in the movie.  The task is to make sure that you’re delivering on the subjects, the pre-story and the story to come, which are known, and on many other TV shows they’re not. 

George R.R. Martin releases sample from ‘The World of Ice and Fire’

By Lightbringer on

Today, George R.R. Martin published a new sample on his official website. Not quite as exciting as the previous sample from The Winds of Winter, but possibly the next best thing- a sample from the long awaited digest, The World of Ice and Fire, an official history of Westeros and the world of A Game of Thrones.

The new sample focuses on Aegon I Targaryen, the founder of the once ruling Targaryen dynasty of Westeros. Providing historical information on House Targaryen, and details on how Aegon conquered the Seven Kingdoms to be the one true king of a divided realm, this excerpt proves an interesting read for show and book lovers alike.
