Game of Thrones stars step out at the Oscars, reveal who from the cast they still talk to


The 92nd Academy Awards went down last night, and there were more than a few surprises in store! Parasite wins Best Picture! And Best Director! And Best Original Screenplay (okay, I expected that last one)! This was probably the lowest-profile movie going into the show, but it was really good, so I was happy to see it take home so much hardware.

Unfortunately, Game of Thrones star Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow) didn’t win for Best Actor for his role in The Two Popes, but that was always Joaquin Phoenix’s award to lose, right? There was really no arguing with his performance in Joker.

I wonder what powerful religious figure Pryce will play next. He’s got a niche now.

Also present was Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), who was there with the rest of the cast of Jojo Rabbit, which won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Had Jojo Rabbit won Best Picture, Allen probably would have gotten to go up on the Oscars stage, but this will have to do:

Also in the mix was Dean-Charles Chapman (King Tommen Baratheon), who played Lance Corporal Thomas Blake in Sam Mendes’ World War I drama 1917:

Chapman didn’t get a chance to get on stage, either, but he talk to Entertainment Weekly about the Game of Thrones cast member he still talks to “on a daily basis”:

"I speak to Isaac Hempstead Wright a lot. He’s one of my best mates. I speak to him every day."

Wright, of course, played Bran Stark. These two never shared screentime together on the show, but it warms our hearts to hear they’ve kept up their friendship.

Weirdly enough, Chapman costarred with another of the Stark children in 1917; they even played brothers, although again, they never actually got to share the screen together. “I remember [Mendes] telling me, at a table read, I asked who’s going to be playing my brother, and he said Richard Madden (Robb Stark),” Chapman remembered. “My first reaction is, I don’t look anything like Richard Madden, so I can’t see that. But in the film, Richard did a really good job of trying to sound like Blake as well. So that worked.”

Oh, and also Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell) was at the Oscars. I’m not exactly sure why, but I also don’t particularly care and he looks great in a suit, so…

Congrats to all the winners! We’ll have a Game of Thrones star up there accepting an acting award sooner or later…
