Game of Thrones cast members are up to stuff. But what stuff? Let’s look into it. Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) has been named the Grand Marshall for the 2018 Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland, according to Joe. Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha congratulated Cunningham, calling him “a fantastic ambassador for Irish acting.” Cunningham himself was pretty jazzed, too:
I have always been a proud Irishman and Dubliner and do my best to represent my country and city when I am abroad working. It’s a huge honour to be invited back to lead the parade on our national holiday. I’m really looking forward to being a part of it.
St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner. This year, party with Davos.
Next, Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) can be seen below trading in his Game of Thrones outfit for something that looks a lot like his Game of Thrones outfit on the set of Robert the Bruce, an upcoming film about the famed Scottish king.
Above, Portman takes a shot next to Angus Macfadyen, who played Robert the Bruce in Braveheart. And here Portman is striking a regal pose:
Moving on, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) was at the Dublin premiere of his film 3 Things, where he plays a bank robber who demands three things of the police before entering the witness protection program. Check out the trailer:
While in the are, Coster-Waldau spoke to the spoke to the Belfast Telegraph about filming the final season of Game of Thrones. “I’m excited,” he said. “I’m going to miss everyone involved with it. I’m going to miss going up to Belfast, but it’s time that we wrap up. Pretty s***ty weather today but … it’s an amazing place to shoot.”
Belfast and the surrounding areas are where the bulk of Game of Thrones is filmed — there’s a King’s Landing set in the city itself, Riverrun is at the nearby Linen Mill Studios, Castle Black’s at Magheramorne Quarry and Winterfell is at Moneyglass. For the actors on the show, leaving this area must be like leaving Westeros.
Finally, you’ll soon be able to catch Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) opposite Ender’s Game star Asa Butterfield in Time Freak, is romantic comedy about a lovelorn physics prodigy (Butterfield) who invents a time machine after his girlfriend (Turner) dumps him. Here are Turner and Butterfield in promotional photos. Check out the first promotional photos:
