Natalia Tena on the whereabouts and future of Osha and Rickon

By Lightbringer on

Bran Stark, Hodor, Meera and Jojen Reed reached the three-eyed raven in the Season 4 finale, but Osha and Rickon have been nowhere to be seen since the two groups parted ways at the end of Season 3. Many viewers have been left hoping that we haven’t seen the last of them quite yet, and to no surprise, Game of Thrones actress Natalia Tena feels the same way.

Vulture caught up with Natalia Tena recently while she was in New York to promote her new film 10,000 KM, where she shared her hopes for what George R.R. Martin has planned in Osha’s future, her favorite fan theory, and what she thinks Osha’s drink of choice would be.

Apparently, because of the way you’ve portrayed Osha, George R.R. Martin is reconsidering how he’s writing the character in the next book.
I don’t know! I hope so! I hope it bears fruit. Let’s see what happens in the sixth book. I’m hoping he gives us more adventures! Fingers crossed. I don’t know entirely what they’re going to do yet on the show, if they’re going to pick up with us next season. I don’t think they’ve finalized the scripts yet, or who’s doing what, or what they’re picking up from the books, or where they’re going off-book. Where is it going to go? I don’t know.

A Game of Thrones House Sigil for all 50 States

By Lightbringer on

We’ve seen Game of Thrones sigils for everything from sports teams to television shows, but now we can add all 50 American States to the list.

With the help of the HBO’s generator, Reddit user boo-yay has created a sigil for each of the 50 states, as well as the four US territories and the District of Columbia. Drawing obvious inspiration from the state flags for the sigil backgrounds, the state words proved a little trickier, he says he “either used the states motto, “tweaked” the motto, went by the state slogan, or made a play on the states nickname or popular saying.”

Sophie Turner on being Sansa Stark

By Lightbringer on

Sophie Turner graces the cover of the July issue of Nylon Singapore this month, with a feature on being Sansa Stark. We’ve seen a few pictures from the spread recently, but yesterday the full article surfaced online.

In the new interview Sophie talks at length about her portrayal of Sansa Stark and the transformation that her character has gone through, her friendship with Maisie Williams, and her experience working on Game of Thrones.

It isn’t always easy being Sansa Stark, as much of her story has been told through her silence, but Sophie admits that she enjoys the challenge. “I really like the fact that she is quite a silent character. If she had spoken up in court at any point she would have gotten herself killed. She is being compliant with the people she hates just so that she can bide her time and then she can actually get her own back. It’s fun because then a lot of the acting is in the face, and not in the words, which is nice for me to experiment with.”

Directors for Game of Thrones Season 5 announced

By Lightbringer on

Entertainment Weekly has just released a breakdown of directors for Game of Thrones Season 5.

The fifth season of Game of Thrones will have five directors, with each taking charge of two back to back episodes. It looks like we’re in for a batch of newcomers to the show next year, with only one familiar name on the list, David Nutter, who will be closing out the season with the last two episodes.

We’ve already learned that Michael Slovis will be at the helm of the first two episodes, but we can also welcome Mark Mylod, Jeremy Podeswa, and Miguel Sapochnik into the fold. Notably absent are Alex Graves, Neil Marshall, Michelle MacLaren, and Alik Sakharov, as well as our showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are likely focusing on other aspects of the upcoming season.

Here is the full breakdown:

Episodes 501 and 502: Michael Slovis (episodes of AMC’s Breaking Bad, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU)
Episodes 503 and 504: Mark Mylod (episodes of Showtime’s Shameless and HBO’s Entourage)
Episodes 505 and 506: Jeremy Podeswa (episodes of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and Showtime’s The Tudors)
Episodes 507 and 508: Miguel Sapochnik (episodes of Fox’s House and Fringe)
Episodes 509 and 510: David Nutter

Full video of the Game of Thrones panel at London Film and Comic Con

By Lightbringer on

A number of cast members were guests at London Film & Comic Con this weekend, and Flicks And The City has shared a full video of the Game of Thrones panel. Gethin Anthony, Finn Jones, Kristian Nairn, Ellie Kendrick, Sibel Kekilli, and Ian Beattie had a good time talking about their work on Thrones, and answering plenty of hypothetical fan questions. And in case you missed it yesterday, Finn Jones closes the panel by sending Joffrey’s piñata head flying in one sweeping slice.

Rose Leslie says goodbye to Ygritte, lands new action film role

By Lightbringer on

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news this weekend that Rose Leslie has landed one of the lead roles in Summit Entertainment’s upcoming supernatural action film, The Last Witch Hunter. Rose will be going from wildling to witch in the new project, and will play love interest to the film’s lead witch hunter, Vin Diesel.

Very exciting news for Rose, but she won’t be getting away from Game of Thrones quite yet. As we reported yesterday, she’ll be joining the cast later this month at San Diego Comic Con.

She also spoke about her time as Ygritte in a new interview with Radio Times. Rose reveals what she’ll miss about playing the fierce wildling, the best fan delivery of ‘you know nothing’ she’s ever received, and how she celebrated her last scene on Game of Thrones.

You’ve just finished playing Ygritte in Game of Thrones. Was it a relief to take off the pelts?

It was very nice to have styled hair, not just greased up and tied back. But I’ll always miss the furs and the bow and arrow.

Do you get people coming up to you saying your catchphrase, “You know nothing, Jon Snow”?

I do, it’s just an expression of how loved Game of Thrones is. I was having lunch with a girlfriend in London about a year ago and I was debating what I wanted on the menu. The waitress came up and I said, “I just don’t know.” She came out with “You know nothing” – deadpan. Her timing was perfect.

Kristian Nairn set to embark on ‘Rave of Thrones’ Australian national tour

By Lightbringer on

Before we knew Kristian Nairn as our beloved Hodor, he had already made a name for himself traveling the world as a DJ. It was announced yesterday that Nairn’s night and day job will be colliding, as he (or DJ Hodor in this case) will embark on a national Australian tour in August, aptly titled ‘Rave of Thrones.’

According to a press release, Nairn will be “showcasing some of the deepest house from all seven kingdoms” in six capital cities across Australia on August 28 through September 7. The shows will be Game of Thrones themed, with the venues transformed in the fashion of the finest halls in Westeros. Costumes will not only be encouraged, but will be mandatory, and you had better be fancy.

Nairn will be joined by Sydney artist EGO who will perform a Thrones themed visual set, as well as a range of surprise guests.

So grab your wigs, furs, gowns – and tickets, which are available now. Full tour dates and links below:
