Here are your Game of Thrones news highlights this Monday morning!
- In her new interview with The Daily Beast, Natalie Dormer discusses her role as Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1, her present-day basis for Margaery Tyrell, which scene she asked the show writers to change in season 4, and why Game of Thrones needs more male nudity.
Well, during the first season Alfie, Richard, and several of the men got naked—although not all the way. I suppose it’s just the rules of broadcast television, isn’t it? I think Thrones has been better than your average show with the equality, but they could definitely ramp it up! Absolutely.
- Telltale’s Game of Thrones game is now available for pre-purchase! Head on over to Steam and order in advance for $26.99- that’s 10% off the original price. The game, featuring the story of the northern House Forrester, is due to be released this December.
- Jerome Flynn muses on his trip back to stardom in the Independent, being part of a spiritual community, his current role on Ripper Street, and offered his thoughts on becoming Bronn.
I was going up for this killer mercenary, and I was staying at my brother’s and I pulled out his kitchen cupboard on to my face and I had this big bruise over my eye. I put my hair back and suddenly I started to feel the character, although I had no idea what it was.
Flynn also noted, “I was brought up on double acts and I love them,” and that he’s “had a lot of good leading men, funny men, like Robson and Peter.”
- While playing a game of ‘Kiss, Marry, Sleep With,’ with the German edition of Glamour magazine, Academy Award-winning actress and Thrones fan Jennifer Lawrence reportedly gave this enlightening response:
Good question! I’d marry Tyrion Lannister because he’s so good to his wife. […] Kiss: Jaime Lannister. You definitely wouldn’t want to be married to him. Sex: with Jon Snow, although he was still a virgin not that long ago. In those circumstances, I wouldn’t mind if Jaime Lannister burst in on the Jon Snow situation!
