We’ve got a grab-bag of Game of Thrones-themed goodies for you on this Friday, starting with a short film from Rebel Park Productions called Leading Lady Parts, the first in a series of films “aimed at shining a light on the portrayal of women in the media and the challenges women face in the workplace across all industries.” Also, it’s pretty damn funny, and features not one but two queens of Westeros:
You heard them, Emilia. Cry in a sensual sexy way, and smile.
Clarke and Headey aren’t the only ones working the short film circuit. Years ago, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) filmed a horror short that will finally debut at the FrightFest Film Festival in London this month. It’s called Corvidae, and she’s excited for people to see it:

When she sees a group of local boys shooting birds and nests, she scares them off and takes home a wounded crow. Later, the boys try and get revenge.
So that’s a wild swing from light to dark. Back on the happy side of things, Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) pulls back the curtain on the Game of Thrones set. What’s behind it? Emilia Clarke spitting mad rhymes, apparently:
The good times roll on the latest episode of the YouTuber steve’s viewing of Game of Thrones, which he’s watching for the first time and completely out of order. Today, we come to “Kissed by Fire,” from the middle of season 3:

Let’s go out on a song. YouTube channel Soundtrack Mixes, which tells you everything you need to know about it, has taking the scene from the end of “Dragonstone” — where Daenerys arrives in Westeros for the first time — and underscored it with a sweeping track from Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi. It works beautifully:
It takes something like this to make me sit up and appreciate how huge a role backing tracks play in setting the mood of a scene. All hail Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi.
