FunniestLine

It’s our second-to-last day of Watchers on the Wall Awards final round polling, and we’ve saved the silliest for the end!

There were dozens of nominees in our preliminary round, from a diverse range of characters. But only five can make the final cut, and there were five clear winners in our poll.

Game of Thrones will be visiting several exciting locations later this fall, and today we have new details about one of them and their role in season 7, courtesy of Los Siete Reinos.

We know from the casting announcement and process that HBO was hunting for Unsullied soldiers, and we also learned then the show was searching for a large amount of horses to use in a sequence for filming there.

Alexander Siddig on his exit from Game of Thrones

Ellaira killes Prince Doran Martell

When Alexander Siddig was announced as a new addition to the Game of Thrones cast at San Diego Comic Con in 2014, fans could not have been more hyped. He was a long-time favorite for the role of Prince Doran Martell; him joining the show in the part for season five was a dream come true for viewers who love to fancast the story in advance. Siddig delivered in his performance as the wise and cautious older brother of the beloved Oberyn Martell, but his character was seemingly shunted off to the side. Then Prince Doran was bumped off in an inglorious manner in the season six premiere by Ellaria Sand, furthering the agenda of the Sand Snakes and diverging wildly from the A Song of Ice and Fire version of the character’s plot. Fans were left annoyed and largely baffled by the move.

Speaking to StarTrek.com in a new interview, Alexander Siddig addresses his time on Game of Thrones and what happened there- as much as he knows. He admits he’s “not really sure what happened there,” and says he was actually contracted to do at least four episodes in season six. But something changed, and he received a phone call one day from the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss:
