Jason Momoa hangs out with the Game of Thrones showrunners in Belfast, and other cast member news


The cast and crew of Game of Thrones were out and about this week, sometimes keeping unexpected company. Case in point: former cast member Jaon Momoa (Khal Drogo) posted a picture to his Instagram showing himself sharing a beer with showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The trio were in Belfast, the nerve center of Game of Thrones filming.

He also posted a video of himself on a plane with the pair to his Instagram Stories:

“If you don’t know, now you know.” Know what, Jason Momoa? Tell us!

Now, clearly Momoa is leaning in to the “Am I in Game of Thrones season 8?” angle…probably a bit too much. This is hardly the first time Momoa has been spotted conspicuously hanging out with members of the cast and crew, and there’s no reason to think it means anything other than visiting with old work buds. But if you’d like to speculate about a season 8 dream sequence featuring Khal Drogo and Daenerys, go ahead.

Speaking of Daenerys, Emilia Clarke recently attended the American Songbook Gala honoring HBO CEO Richard Plepler and got up on stage to sing “The Way You Look Tonight,” originally performed by Fred Astaire in the 1936 film Swing Time. Twitter’s own @shalxna edited some of the clips floating out there together, so we can get a good feel for her performance:

Clarke’s voice is actually pretty good! That shouldn’t come as that big of a surprise; she sang during her stint on a stage version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s

…and of course, there’s her song on Coldplay’s Game of Thrones musical:

Anyway, we can now add “Singer of Songs” to Dany’s lengthy list of titles.

Moving on, Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) all hung out at the Monaco Grand Prix this past weekend, dressed for success:

According to the Daily Mail, Harington even drove one of the cars around the track.

Not to be outdone, John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and David Benioff attended the UFC Fight Night in Liverpool on Sunday. Game of Thrones stars everywhere, man.

Pivoting to the Iron Islands, Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) appeared as a guest on Eat Your Heart Out With Nick Helm, a show about the comic sampling different foods from across Europe. In this clip, Whelan and Helm visit the Berlin Wall and Whelan makes fun of Helm’s love life. A grand time is had by all:

Finally, in celebrities who don’t have anything to do with the production of Game of ThronesThe Good Place star Kristen Bell watched the Red Wedding and broke down. And it’s on tape, thanks to husband Dax Shepard:

We recommend Bell listen to this week’s episode of Take the Black Podcast with House Razor, where we recap “The Rains of Castamere,” for therapeutic purposes. It’s okay, Kristen. We’ve all been there.

Next: Take the Black Podcast: Our rewatch continues with “The Rains of Castamere”
