Game of Thrones Season 6 Red Carpet Premiere, livestreaming!

The #GOTPremiereLA has begun, with the stars of Game of Thrones hitting the carpet at LA’s famed Chinese Theater.

Cast members expected to attend tonight include Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, John Bradley, Michiel Huisman, Kristian Nairn, Alfie Allen, Iwan Rheon, Daniel Portman, Finn Jones, Eugene Simon, Kristofer Hivju, Liam Cunningham, Dean-Charles Chapman, and more. (See the embedded tweet-list below for a full accounting!)

We’ll be keeping an eye on the interviews and fashions all night long so stay tuned for reports.

Veronica Belmont is hosting on the red carpet, asking questions put forth by fans over the past few days.

After a considerable delay with the broadcast, here’s the link to the Game of Thrones Season 6 Red Carpet livestream!

Last year, the San Francisco red carpet event was about an hour long. Shortly before the stream ended, HBO unveiled a new behind the scenes video. I wonder if HBO will have a special Game of Thrones treat for us this year as well?

The season 5 red carpet premiere did bring a few leaks, so be prepared for that possibility. (If any fans hear of them, please be courteous to your fellow fans and cover those spoilers!)  HBO has only released one episode title and synopsis in advance of this premiere, however, whereas last year they had released officially the first three episode titles and synopses. Suffice to say, HBO is playing things very close to the vest this year and that will apply to this event as well.

Jesse B. Gill of the Nerdist shared his cast list handout on Twitter:

We can see that Joe Naufahu’s character name has been switched back to Khal Moro.

All night, we’ll be retweeting and sharing the fashions on our Twitter, so follow us there. We’ll be recapping the red carpet looks and interview highlights after the show as well since tonight was a bit chaotic!

    1. Michael McElhatton just said he filmed everything in the spring, almost a year ago. Make of that what you will for Roose.

    2. They are doing all they cam to hide Jon Snow. They still have to come with an explanation for the Stark armor photos

    3. The feed is working for me now. But it’s glitchy and skips, the traffic on it is really heavy and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still not working that well for people.

      It’s also a little annoying we can’t embed the video.

    5. Won’t work on my smartphone either. It says there’s some error with the video. Oh well, I’ll just happily listen now and watch it later if I can.

    6. The stream hasn’t cut off or lagged once for me. Smooth both on the PC, and when I go out for a smoke on my phone. And I’m all the way across the world in Australia.

      I guess it depends on the internet quality.

    7. Girl Who’s Not Really a Fan: Night’s Guard or the King’s Watch?

      Sansa: Wait, you just said it again!

      Girl Who’s Not Really a Fan: No, I didn’t.

      She totally did.

    8. Ravyn,

      Did you mean the mention of “Would you rather fight a White Walker or The Mountain”? I am not one to jump on the Cleganebowl hype train but the “she is friend’s with his brother…loosely…”, I couldn’t help but think a certain GD will be introduced.

    9. Did anyone else hear Maisie say that she and another “lady” that was just there were doing a lot of fight training – the only “lady” that was just there was Sansa’s actress.

      Is it too much to hope that Sansa really gets tough this season?

      I forget. There was just a moment where you could tell she was caught in the middle of a thought, like she went off the HBO script, and then quickly recovered. I might be reading too much into it.

      EDIT: Listening to Aiden talk in an interview is uncomfortable.

      He won’t be, as he is currently performing previews for Dr. Faustus in London, plus doing two shows a day over the weekend. He’s already getting good reviews too. However, I will eat my hat if he shows up later as a surpise. 🙂

      Looking at Aiden makes me happy. Listening to him in interviews, not so much. 🙂

      And I read into everything. To mention Sandor in passing, just got me giddy. Miss The Hound. And yes…I am all SanSan but understand book and show are different. Don’t expect the show to “go there” but still think (if he returns) he will be in her service.

    15. Hmmmm sounds like Cersei makes it through the season. Dinklage said it’s “pre-determined” Tyrion and her will meet again.

      Unless somehow they meet THIS season O.o

    16. Dinklage hung on that question about Tyrion seeing Cersei again for a real long time, like he was searching for a way to answer without answering. Hmmm….

      Now that’s it’s over… was very fun, but not feeling any ACTUAL slip-up or revelations. The Peter Dinklage comment… meh, just felt like his personal opinion. Night!

      Flayed Potatoes,

      Here is one that was referred to on a Harington tumblr:
      https://monstagigz.com/2016/04/09/theatre-review-dr-faustus-starring-kit-harington/#more-2738

      He is a little patronzing, but still gives Kit the thumbs up. Hope the link works, otherwise I’ll post it again.
      The others are fan reviews, which may or may not be reliable.

      From the linked review: If you’re a fan of Harrington’s the material might be a little challenging

      Wow, what an arse! Like no Game of Thrones fan could possibly have read Marlowe. Oh well, at least he’s complimentary. And yeah, twitter reviews are not a great resource,but all of the ones I’ve seen aren’t merely positive, they’re absolutely gushing about the whole production. Sounds like it’s pretty spectacular, and Jenna Russell is a bit of a legend so it has a lot going for it. I studied Dr Faustus in my first year of uni but will have to reread it. I have tickets for the 25th of June (the last night) so am looking forward to it!

    27. Flayed Potatoes,

      I know right? And he’s kind of missing the point. It’s my understanding that bringing this kind of material to a new audience was the reason the director (who, as you may know, has a great rep for innovative productions) chose Kit in the first place. Theatre isn’t some gentlemen’s club for intellectual snobs. Or at least it shouldn’t be.

      Ravyn,

      Just saw that. Roose is done for.

      Normally i’d think that but…

      Roose is a bolt-on Vampire so can’t die!

      Coukd be a difference from books to show though, i see book Roose outlasting book Ramsay, show may be the other way

      An easy explanation is Roose goes back to Dreadfort, baby with Fat Walda is heir to Dreadfort, while Ramsay is lord of winterfell and obviously an heir supposedly produced with fArya or rSansa woukd be quasi-Stark from that point on

      Show could do this and have Roose in S7

    31. Thank you WotW for the link. I could not watch it live, but now the link is working and we can watch the full video on FB.
      It was annoying that an interviewer would not know what the kingsguard is. Ironically, I enjoyed her other factually correct questions better than most other interviewers’ on these kind of shows. Less pretentious, I think. (Apart from the fact that she seems to only have watched/remembers season 5).

      I thought that some of them – at least Sophie and Aidan sounded drunk. I don’t know what drove Peter to say ‘it’s pre-determined that Cersei and Tyrion will meet again’ – he is not a book reader and does not care much about the plot (according to what D&D said in interviews) – so he would not know about valonqar, Unless someone told him. Like GRRM or D&D told him that ‘this is why Cersei hates Tyrion so much’. Or they told Lena and Lena told Peter since they are buddies. That way, Tyrion may not be valonqar, but Peter knows about the prophecy.

      I loved Sophie’s dress and hairstyle – She looked ‘queenly’, hopefully a good sign for the S6.

      Davos is the new fan-favorite – YAY! He is not the hero that Westeros deserves, but the one that is needs right now. The Onion Knight.

    33. I’ll be sad if Roose dies this season – Michael McElhatton seems to understand Roose as well as any bookfan – there was a full-length interview he did one or two years back which was absolutely wonderful. As much as I love these great actors at GoT and their portrayal of the ASOIAF characters, their views about the characters are often misguided (As an ardent fan of book-Sam, it is always a pain to hear John Bradley speak. Even Emilia who has read the books sounds so naive about her characters arc). But this guy gets Roose so completely, that it is a pleasure to see him talk about Roose.

        Quote  Reply

    34. aabe,

      I’ve never found fault with how John Bradley or Emilia speak about their characters. They both seem to know their book counterparts pretty well. Emilia has even acknowledged Dany’s darker tendencies and knows her book character is polarizing and is both loved and hated.

      Also, regarding Peter. He has said several times that he knows Tyrions arc and where his character is supposed to go. He was told when he got the part. So if he think Tyrion and Cersei are fated to meet again, then I’d say it’s legit.

      I was looking for reviews myself but I had only found the one a Watcher already gave a link to, and that was through Tumblr. Google search doesn’t pull up anything except for the initial announcements for the production. Odd. On a side note, judging from stage door photos he looks pretty happy to be doing theater, the angsty face is gone lol.

      Dinklage hasn’t read the books, so unless that element is brought up this season somehow (which seems unlikely), I doubt he’s referring to that.

      Sure he still hasn’t? And nobody told him about that detail of his character?

      I am not buying he doesn’t know about the “valanquor”.

      Sorry for elbowing in here, but I *think* (could be getting it mixed up) this week is a preview week for friends, family, theatre patrons and special guests, with the rest of the seats made available to general audience members. I believe the reviewers are invited next week, and, as I know from a friend who is a reviewer, those guys wouldn’t go earlier without a freebie!

      OK well that makes sense then! Don’t really know how these things work at big playhouses. All I know is if London wasn’t so far away I wouldn’t mind going, just to see if he’s as magnetic in person as I find him to be on screen. I’m not really into theater, judging by the couple of plays I’ve been to (long ago) I find them awkward somehow lol. Of course, they were smaller venues.

      Oh it’s not anywhere near me either – I’m only going because it fits in with a trip I’m already making to the UK to visit friends. I’m seeing a couple of other shows as well. Part of the fun of being in London! I enjoy theatre in general, but I have been to a couple of absolute shockers, and awkward barely covers it! It’s super uncomfortable being in a live audience for something that truly sucks. You just sit there contemplating faking a seizure or setting something on fire.

      Kit is the main actor of a stage play of Dr. Faustus in London. He has to play every weekend now. He would have needed Littlefinger’s jetpack to do the trip.

      +after all the denying they wouldn’t spoil it for the last two weeks, would they?

      YgiTTe,

      I saw Doctor Faustus on Saturday and while I can’t speak for what critics will say, the audience loved it! The play itself was riveting, at once moving, upsetting, absurd, and delightfully tongue-in-cheek. Kit did a really fantastic job and I don’t just say that as a fan of his. There were some lovely bits for the supporting cast, but the play was carried by Faustus, so if Kit couldn’t hold his own, it wouldn’t have worked. We gave them a standing ovation almost immediately, so I think it worked ?

      FYI–in addition to standard stuff like haze effects and strobe lighting, there’s some disturbing content. It’s about selling your soul to the devil and they don’t shy away from depicting that as a mental, emotional and physical violation. There’s rape. There’s spitting. There’s quite a bit of blood. For me the spitting was the only thing that felt gratuitous, but if these are triggers, be advised. If they aren’t, enjoy! It’s really good stuff, well worth the trip to London.

      Thank you! It’s a long way away for me so I don’t get to visit very often either. Just quietly, I’m sneaking it on the back of a work conference. No way in hell would I travel 30+ hours for a damn conference without having a bit of a holiday or seeing mates (shh, don’t tell anyone that). You’ll get there someday! When you do head over that way, don’t forget to visit Scotland and Ireland. Gorgeous countryside and fantastic people 🙂

      Isabelle,

      I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it 🙂 Sounds amazing. And that’s truly thoughtful of you to give trigger warnings! I’ll be ok. I’m an indelicate sort and am familiar with the play so I expect nothing less. Bring on the blood and bodily fluids!
