Before the SAG Awards ceremony last night, cast members of Game of Thrones hit the Red Carpet for some entertaining (though not exactly spoiler-heavy) interviews.

Sophie Turner and Hannah Murray answered some #SmartGirlsAsk questions tweeted from fans. Turner spoke of the impact her mum has had on her life.

Murray discussed the best advice she’s ever received and how that’s shaped her outlook on her career.

Character mortality was a reoccurring theme in interviews.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau discussed the possibility of a gradual Monty Python-esque dismemberment for Jaime.

Michiel Huisman also addressed the high-turn over rate for cast members, saying, “You’re always worried you’re going to die because that’s, you know, kind of what happens on our show.” He also promised a “bigger and better” show next season.

Gwendoline Christie discussed fashion, the award-worthiness of Game of Thrones and confirmed that Captain Phasma will appear in the next Star Wars film.

Emilia Clarke spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the persistence of questions concerning Jon Snow’s fate. Her response: “Tune in, in April.”

    1. I love the GoT ladies so much. Sophie, Emilia, Hannah & Gwen looked stunning.

      Ugh at being asked about Rose and Kit, Emilia must’ve felt so uncomfortable. I saw a bunch of headlines on my TL about them and Sophie

    2. Lysarra,

      There were rumours from time to time about Kit/Emilia. So they asked her, but it’s a ridiculous question to begin with. Even more so on the red carpet of SAG Awards. Their only luck was that Emilia is so polite to answer. Lovely dress much like Sophie.

      Nooooooooooooooo…………………………

      Tim:
      Emilia handled the stupid question so damn well. They are lucky she is such a polite woman

      Horrible question, but Emilia is a pro at interviews by now.

    5. I am with Gwendoline on that,I think GOT should have won the award based on the sheer number of cast members alone. Coordinating multiple locations with 350 plus actors,spread across 3-4 countries is no small feat. Happy about the stunt award win though,much deserved.

    6. Looking forward to seeing interviews from the rest of the attending cast members Carice Van houten,John Bradley,Kit Harington,Alfie Allen etc.

      And points to Emilia for not walking out of that ridiculousness.
      Shame Nancy O’ Dell Shame! *ding ding*

    7. Emilia is definitely the actor with the most beautiful smile and she really answered this stupid question very well and very professional.

      Sophie has too much make-up on her eyes, but the dress is very beautiful.

      Maisie Williams also looks very beautiful. And Hannah Murray looks so cute. Kit is yummie;-) But Nikolaj and Pedro Pascal are also very attractive. And even Liam Cunningham has something special.

      I just love everyone on Game of Thrones. All of them are such a good actors and always so nice and humble in interviews (except the Dothraki one a few days ago).

      The Kit/Emilia stuff was always fan wishful thinking. It’s like people who won’t let go that DiCaprio and Winslet have never and will never be a couple. As far as anyone knows, Kit’s been on/off/on again with Rose Leslie.

    9. Chilli: Sophie has too much make-up on her eyes, but the dress is very beautiful.

      Far be it from me to critique a woman’s make up, but I find this to be a problem with Sophie (or, whoever’s doing her makeup for events). They absolutely don’t need to put all that on her (Yes, I know some of it is because of the lights). It’s too intense and unnecessary. Sophie Instagrammed a picture of herself the other day with seemingly little to no make up and she actually looks like who she is: a 19 year old.

    10. Rich tyrell, That explains why it didn’t win. I don’t watch the other shows, but it makes sense that a smaller cast probably has a lot more scenes together and probably work very well together.

    11. SPAK,

      Interesting. Sooo… is Nikolaj just making this up because he didn’t know what to answer or does the season really open with a dead Jon Snow? I certainly think it could. Take right off where we left off last season.

      I don’t know if either of you are women, or have spent any time being photographed under camera or stage lighting. Your makeup, in order to show up properly on camera and not make you look like a melted ghost, needs to be bolder and more liberally applied. Also, she is a 19 year old girl – I was also wearing heavy eye makeup when I was 19 and I was just going to a house party. I’m 31 and I sometimes I still wear heavy eye makeup. It’s not an unreasonable idea for a grown woman to wear as much goddamn eye makeup as she wants. Just my two cents….

    16. I don’t think the quantity of makeup Sophie is wearing is a problem. And I am a woman. I think it’s the application which makes her look like a three pack per day smoker.

      I don’t dispute her right to wear as much makeup as she chooses. She can set her makeup gun to circus clown if she wants. Her choice. But that doesn’t change the fact that she looks old and tired in these photos.

      So I keep having doubts

      The very fact you use make-up in the first place indicates that you’re not “grown”. Face-painting is for children. You put on make-up to mask your insecurities about your appearance or to call attention to it. There’s nothing admirable or respectable about that. You’re also failing to accept the natural state of things, ie your face as it is, and aging. That’s the last thing a “grown” woman would be interested in. Sophie shows that she is still an immature teenager by flaunting herself visually to attract attention. It’s neither good nor bad, but it’s certainly not a mark of maturity.

    20. So we know that Sansa has a good vibe season. And however it is GoT and everything is ‘bittersweet’ I assume Rickon survives season 6. The Starks will not have major loses, but I think we will see Rickon die at the beginning of season 6 (hope, hope, hope)

      Also we will Jon Snow quickly to be alive. I think ep 2.

      And Daario…he will be dead this season I think. His storyline is over when he finds the Mother of Dragons. Maybe he will rule Mareen in name of Daenerys and we see him late in season 7 or 8. But I don’t think so.

      And now, I want a trailer/picture/x-seconds of video or audio: I don’t care HBO!

      Ok not talking spoiler detail but there was one sighting which, logically, would have meant he would have had to have filmed other scenes for it to make sense. So I’m not worried.

      Ugh. Spare me your old-fashioned hippy philosophy on “womyn.” Western culture values youth. Imo, it’s immature to follow your advice and deliberately NOT portray yourself in the best light (no pun intended).

      I think Sophie looks better than she has on occasion in the past. Her makeup is tasteful and appropriate and her dress nicely shows off her very fair skin. All the GoT women looked great!

      (Did anyone else think that was a really, unnecessarily aggressive reply to Lyanna_Targaryen?)

      What? You mean by being extraordinarily judgmental, going so far as to call someone immature and insecure simply because she stated she enjoys wearing makeup, even, *gasp* heavy eye make up from time to time? Um, yeah, and I’m someone who rarely wears any makeup, at all. Then again, the person who made those rather absurd statements probably feels as though women should run about in big ol’ baggy burlap sacks, lest they demonstrate their insecurities by drawing attention to their figure, by wearing something, well, other than big ol’ baggy burlap sacks.

      So, Sophie, if you happen to be reading this, you may only step out of the house completely make up free and in unflattering clothing, lest ye be judged by random person on the internet. (you, too, Lyanna) 😉

      But the other actors pictured don’t look like melted ghosts. They look fine. Sophie looks fine too. I don’t know if it’s the way her eyebrows are sculpted, but she seems to have a lot of real estate between her eyes and her brows – wearing bold make up there has the effect of making her eyes look smaller than they actually are.

      Sophie is 19 years old. She’s having fun and experimenting with makeup and fashion, and there is nothing wrong with that. And any woman, at any age, has the right to wear and look however she damn well pleases without being verbally dismantled piece by piece, or facing accusations of insecurity and immaturity.

      Can someone get Retrocade to write up a list of rules about what women are allowed to wear and not allowed to wear to effectively express our maturity? Not to mention our autonomy. And free will.

      I so need someone to make my decisions for me.

      In other news, I hear the cast is doing a photo shoot today for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Beverly Hills today.

      I wonder if any of them will wear makeup.

      And on top of that, I remember whoever that was saying something like, “Season 6 starts off right where season 5 ends”.

      Keyword there being “right”.

      So I am guessing we start off season 6 with the scene of Jon Snow bleeding out…

      Abyss,

      Well, do you wear your Monday Morning War Paint You to mask your insecurities about your appearance or to call attention to it? Does your desire to wear it stem from a failure to accept the natural state of things, ie your face as it is, and aging. Is it an attempt to flaunt yourself visually? If the answer to any of these questions is, “yes,” I’m sorry to inform you it qualifies as makeup.

    38. Retrocade,

      Oh spare me. You’re a guy right?

      Ever heard of the double bind? Women have two choices in life: wear makeup and be judged or don’t wear makeup and be judged. And you have to look at each situation in your life and decide if the additional judgement and, yes, the real consequences that go with that (such as, for example, not getting a job, or no one listening to your opinions) are worth it just to show ’em.

      Personally I care very little about fashion or makeup. But, I wear it and dress for the occasion when it’s socially correct to do so. When it’s not I don’t bother.

      You know what would be nice? If everyone just stopped freaking out about what other people choose to wear or don’t wear. Ther will be the fastest way to the goal of people actually starting to be judged on their merits instead of this kind of crap.

      I think the lesson we should all take from this is that Khal Drogo was insecure as hell. – I mean, look at all that eyeshadow!

The Writers starting out with jon bleeding is very interesting, what’s going to happen ? What can happen to Jon is the opening ? Edd or someone from the Nights watch finds him Dead ? Jon wargs into ghost ? Bran was watching the event taking place ? what do you guys think ?

    43. Now I’m not a fan of all the Jon/Dany theories out there. I’d rather it not go in that direction. But if Daario dies this season, to me it’s a give away or at the very least a real solid piece of evidence that the Jon/Dany theories may in fact turn out accurate. With perhaps as little as only 2 seasons left, they’re running out of time for each of these characters to get a new lover that isn’t the other. Dany is probably on her way to Westeros by seasons end, and with Val already omitted, is Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen really going to end this story never meeting? Are both of the two major male/female protagonists going to end the final 2 seasons and perhaps the final 2 books as single? I’d say I find that difficult to believe.

      Agree. I was expecting Daario to die last season on the show for that reason. That was before the 8 seasons information came out. Now Dany would have enough time to appear to get over Daario.

      Well, I do think that the season will perhaps start with a “cold opening” pre-credits sequence at Castle Black, but as to what exactly is going to happen there…I’m not sure. Heck, for all I know Ghost might be the opening sequence, after his notable absence during Jon’s stabbing. Another guess for a cold opening sequence pre-credits might be Bran and Bloodraven…

      Hope everything’s ok 🙂 Not sure why you got upset. It’s a trivial thing imo. Well, I’m 32 and actually need makeup at this point lol but I do think back and wonder why I spent the time on it from aged 13 up till my twenties when a girl doesn’t even need much at that age. Good mascara, colored lip gloss and blotting powder would have been all I needed instead of messing with the heavy eyeliner, shadows, blush, etc. because looking back at old pics, my friends and I looked fresher and prettier in the ones where we weren’t wearing all the paint 🙂

Personally I’d end up being more like Nickolaj who came off a bit quiet and nervous lol. He seems like such a nice guy though 🙂 Wish we’d heard something from Kit and even John Bradley. They spoke of Star Wars with Gwendolyn I thought maybe Kit would get asked about his coming project.

      Yes ofcourse. Don’t get me wrong: I hope it too. But the storyline of Jorah and Daario is to find Daenerys. After that, there is a gab. They can find a new storyline. Jorah will leave, send on a mission and because of his grey scale.

      Daario will go with her to Mareen, to bring her home. And that is it. Maybe he is one of the Harpies, but why he didn’t killed he earlier? So I think that is off the taStuart McCall, die in het verleden Glasgow Rangers onder zijn hoede had als eindverantwoordelijke, begint welhaast een polonaise bij het horen van de naam Kazim. Hij vertelt aan het medium HITC Sport: “Kazim heeft natuurlijk wel een eigen karakter, dat is waar. Maar hé, hij heeft wel al een doelpunt gescoord tijdens de derby van Istanbul hè, en dan moet je wel wat in je mars hebben hoor. ble. Maybe he will rule over Mareen in het name and we will see him back end season 7 or 8 when the big war is comming.

      I actually think Sophie’s make up looks amazing (especially her eyes). As for why you did that as a 13 year old – because it was fun! Hey look, I’m not consistent in my own habits (some days I just can’t be assed) but I love makeup. So many pretty colours, so little time.

      I also used to wear a lot of make-up when I was 19 (and some years after). I remember my father, God rest his soul, once asking me: “Is the circus back in town?” He was a good father, but never knew how to talk to me. It’s interesting how our tastes change when we grow up/ older. I smile when I remember myself with long blonde hair, too much make-up, high heels, long skirts. Now, in my 40s, I wear pants, boots, no make-up, I have short chesnut hair. Only the choice of jewellery – absent or big, hippy style, depending on the occasion – is the same.
      But I do like beautiful make-up, the one skillfully done, which enhances beauty – Seven Hells, I like make-up also on rockers and Khal Drogo! I love how make-up suits the beautiful ladies in GOT, it’s a pleasure to see pictures from events.

    55. Emilia Clarke is such a pro. She handles the irrelevant questions superbly. Just gives them a joke and a bit of fluff, along with a winning, sincere smile. Gwendolene, too, has such a great sense of humour – though i would love to see a proper interview with her because you just know she has got heaps to say about her art.
      NikCW looks incredibly tired of the whole charade and who can blame him?

      I guess they all realise that this part of their job is necessary and the only way to get through it is to laugh and not expect any question to be particularly deep or pertinent!

      Look, everyone’s entitled to their opinion. Thing is, and someone said it I previous comments, we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t. She should be able to wear all makeup or none and not be judged for it but that’s not the reality were living in, I suppose. Calling it immature to wear makeup makes me wonder if I’m being trolled, or if the poster is a guy or a really angry woman.

      Either way, I have to go out on my war paint and face the day! Kisses all! Fingers crossed for a trailer this week!

He wouldn’t let me out with a skirt more than 2 inches above the knees etc. so of course I’d change into a mini dress and do makeup at a friend’s house 🙂 I too rocked the bleached blonde hair for awhile. Toned it once with strawberry blonde shade and loved it. But for some reason after I became pregnant blonde looked terrible on me, and also my eye color changed from blue/gray to green. Weird! As for the women of GOT and makeup, one can look at Hannah, for instance. There are many on social media commenting they didn’t recognize her and didn’t know she was so pretty lol. Probably some of those guys are the same ones who tell us women we don’t need to paint our faces Lol.

      But Lyanna, many of us judge what they wore, their hair, and how well they did with the interview questions, so if someone gives an opinion on the makeup I just don’t see how that’s any different? Just trying to understand 🙂 Maybe I missed a posting or two up thread.

      There are like 600+ wildlings to only 50 men at castle black right? I’m thinking the treasonous NW men aren’t apt to be very forthcoming with the truth on how the lord commander died. However Mel might figure it out (or see a vision of it) and call their bluff.

      Always a possibility, but it would be totally out of blue if R+L=J is not true. Ned being his dad is fishy to many people considering his reputation. His mom is someone of great importance.

      Masterofthrones,

      Daario gave her good advices and told her things as they are. Daario could’ve betrayed Daeny thousand times, but no Harpy connection. I want Tyrion, Jorah and Daario to make it to Westeros, but Daario is one of the expendable.

      Max,

      Not fan of this relationship at all, but sadly it is going that direction either way. Daario dead or alive. But let’s hope this is not the ending to this amazing series. Before that Melisandre is in the picture and for all we know she might be his lover for some time. Martells might offer Daeny alliance with Daeny/Trystane as duo on the iron throne.

      This stuff takes time!

      Vinyl starts February 14th and we all know HBO likes to use GoT trailers to add to other shows ratings and excitement.

      So we got 13 more days, relax, it will be here before you know it.

      And like always this site will frame by frame screen shot the trailer and everyone will tare it apart trying to figure out what is going on.

      And on top of that many fans that come here will be making gifs lol…

      If I remember the scene at Hardhome properly, Jon and Tormund were standing on the shores, loading the boats and Jon said 5000 people, we’re not saving enough. It was always my understanding that he brought 5000 wildings back. I know someone will clear it up if I’m wrong, but that’s my take on it. So, more than enough to make paste out of all 50 of the remaining NW.

      I love these pictures of the cast members, I think they all looked wonderful – but where’s a pic of Maisie on this thread? I thought she looked great as well.

      I taped & watched both the red carpet and the whole rewards show, and was disappointed to see only a brief showing of the table where the cast members sat just before the “Best Ensemble” award was given. Downton Abbey?! Arrrggh, I mean I watch the show, and it’s good, but I think the cast of GoT show their merit in such a wide scope of scenes, situations and emotions. Situations far more dramatic than many on Downton.) I was glad to get a glimpse of Kit, but it was fleeting. Maybe I fast- forwarded too much.

      And to the guy upthread who said some shit about wearing makeup – are you kidding? I mean, really.

      A lot of those 5000 people are women,old men or children who can’t fight though . I know the wildlings have female warriors too but i’m willing to bet most of them died at Hardhome like Karsi .

      Given your status as Maester of Gifs, I’d long pictured you in some sort of Maester’s robes. Now, I’m kinda picturing you as some kind of cross between Drogo and Adam Ant. 🙂

      Speaking of Maesters, one of the children I teach is named Aemon (spelled differently, but pronounced like Aemon). We had a huge tournament over the weekend, and in preparation, I kind of recreated what happens at the tournaments, so those who hadn’t competed before knew what to expect. Part of it is how to respond when they hear their name called, so I was calling everyone up by their first and last names. I was particularly tired one day, so, instead of calling him by his real last name, I said, very loudly, “Aemon Targaryen.” Of course, none of the kids got it, but a couple of the parents heard me and had a great laugh. 🙂

      They’ll probably use a bit of artistic licence to wangle a couple of extra thousand Wildlings when Jon actually comes to rally them to his cause.

      Jon said about 5000 when on the docks at Hardhome and Tormund said he wasn’t good at counting, so they might massage the number that actually made it onto the boats, as if Jon underestimated.

      Plus, do we know how many Wildlings Stannis captured when he defeated Mance’s army? In Episode 10 of Season 4 Stannis tells Mance “I’ll have thousands of your men in chains by nightfall…” and in Episode 3 of Season 5 Jon tells Stannis that the Night’s Watch can’t continue to feed Stannis’s men and the Wildling prisoners indefinitely, so Stannis leaves the Wildling prisoners’ fate to Jon.

      Presumably then, there are a couple of thousand Wildling fighters already at Castle Black (as impractical and unrealistic as that sounds), so the number of Wildlings capable of fighting for Jon might end up at about 5000 once the writers have exploited all the wiggle room they’ve created for themselves.

    76. Ramsay’s 20th Good Man,

      5,000 sounds like a good estimate for Wildling numbers in the books…In the show, I’m not quite sure…

      I’m a bit surprised that some of the most “spoilery” comments from the cast haven’t quite made it here yet?

      Nicolaj: “The opening scene for the season will reveal that Jon Snow is…dead, but that is not a big surprise, really.” (Video is up “at that other site”, WIC)

      Liam Cunningham: “This season will be tough to watch…to hell and back, this season” (video is at “that other place”)

      Carice is supposed to have commented to the Italian media that “She’s really in her element this season, Winter brings out the best in her” when talking about Mel…haven’t been able to find confirmation for this…(presumably maybe ’cause Carice may have been speaking Italian when she say it? Not sure…)

      The interview with Nikolaj was posted here late yesterday morning (up thread). I saw something about what you mentioned Carice said, as well, and this is the only site I read, so it’s somewhere around here, too. Liam’s may be around here, but I didn’t watch every video on every link, so I’m not sure.

      I’m surprised they’ll go straight into that storyline. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I am, for some reason. Then again, I expected the resurrection to be the cliffhanger for the episode, but a lot of stuff will probably happen before that, so it makes sense if we see the aftermath of the assassination in the very first scene.

      I had completely forgotten about the prisoners captured by Stannis in the S4 finale. You’re right, they should be a great asset to Jon if the writers remember them. Those wildlings should all be able-bodied warriors and not women & children unable to fight. Though, I seem to recall only about a dozen of these prisoners were in the courtyard to watch Mance burn.

      As for Jon bringing 5000 from Hardhome, I don’t think they all made it onto the ships since they got attacked in the middle of boarding. When they came marching up to the Wall, it looked like he had a lot less than the 5000 who initially agreed to go with him.

      If I had to guess how many wildlings will

      form Jon’s army that marches to Winterfell, I’d say between 2K-3K. May not be enough to defeat Twenty Goodmen.

      Would NCW even be privy to what the opening scene will be? Have they even edited yet? Wouldn’t D&D/HBO warn the cast to not reveal something so major? I’m taking his comment with a huge grain of salt.

      Well hell, nothing wrong with discussing make-up on a thread dedicated to the fashion at an awards show, especially beautifully applied eyeliner – and on this note, I need to ask the overseas fans if it has ever been revealed what kind of eyeliner the singer Adele wears. Her voice is magnificent, her face beautiful, but that eye makeup is effing spectacular. No smudges, no empty spots, looks like it would last through a storm. I’d love to know what it is.

      Considering that the season is in 11 weeks and the trailer should be soon I would think that the first scene is edited already. Screeners go out a few weeks before the premiere as well, so they have about 8 more weeks of editing.

      I know how difficult it is to work with so different age groups. Before being a researcher I used to teach highschool students (14-18) and university students in their first three years (18-mid 20ies, some of them started university later). In my country it’s possible for a school teacher to work with 6-18 years old students (in different groups, of course), but I chose not to work with children, imo it’s more difficult than with teenagers, one must have another approach.

So many characters paths intertwine this season…You really get a sense that the story is coming together and rounding up this time.”

      It’s not “obvious” to many of us. Anyway, if it’s not in the first episode it could be in the next one or the third, depending on how the whole thing is structured. I simply believe it has to happen early in the season —by episode nine he will be leading an army against Ramsay, presumably in what is the climax for his arc of the season. He has to be alive to have an arc.

      I don’t think we know enough about the detailed structure of the season to make any definitive statement on the matter. Maybe there’s a lot of Castle Black in the first episode; if so, he could be resurrected as a cliffhanger for the premiere. Or maybe they want to draw it out. The point is, we don’t know yet. When the early episode titles are released in a month or two we’ll hopefully have a better idea.

      I don’t know if he is filming something else, but he could go full wizard beard by the time S7 starts shooting.

      On the makeup discussion, some faces can’t handle those pounds of makeup. A winged eye makes me look ridiculous. Of course, as an oldie, I stopped wearing black makeup about a decade ago. Black eyeliner is so aging once you hit 35. Give me the soft dark browns and greys.

      Nickolaj seems like such a genuinely nice guy, very humble. He is handsome. I just go for the dark, brooding type more so. As for the black liner being aging, it’s what I normally use but recently decided I probably need a softer brown or something too so I got an Almay one called espresso which appears as slight purplish brown but it looks just so obvious on. Black seems to blend in and somehow look natural. Think I’ll try grey, as you mentioned. I used to use Clinique. A dark forest green or something which was very nice shade but noticed it wore off after a few hours so not worth the higher price.

      The episode titles don’t come all at once. If I remember correctly, we don’t even know all the titles by the time the show premieres. As for the early titles, I think they’re usually released on March, not that long before the episodes themselves.

      Sorry to drag up a post from a few weeks ago, but I totally agree with your sentiment. Like Sophie, I’m a 19-year-old girl. I think that it is very common for girls in their late teens to experiment with makeup. Yes, sometimes it is easy to go overboard on the foundation or mascara, but it is a bit of harmless fun really. As you said, can’t a teenage girl get dolled up for a party without her appearance being commented upon?
