The Game of Thrones news is flowing this week! Here are a few more tidbits to enjoy:
- Sophie Turner is featured in the newest edition of Town & Country. In the in-depth profile, Sophie discusses what it was like growing up on GoT.
Sansa and I have grown up together for the past five years and so when I’m reading the script and something happens to her, I cry all the time. There is a real connection between us – I feel everything she feels. I’d come on set and see something like Ned’s beheading, a heavy, heavy scene to shoot. Having my mum on set for the first three years was really important back then. Because if you get too wrapped up in that darkness, it can really damage you.
Sophie also addressed the show’s infamous nudity and whether she would ever take part in it. “I know that if they took me in that direction, it would only be because it was very necessary. David and Dan are like big brothers to me. I think if a scene like that was filmed with Sansa, it would make them feel very uncomfortable because they still see me as a 13-year-old girl.”
- In non-ASOIAF George R.R. Martin news, Variety reports that Milla Jovovich is starring in In The Lost Lands, an adaptation of some Martin short stories. Jovovich is said to be a fan of Game of Thrones, and GRRM is very excited about the project.
- The Season 4 DVD release party at the Hôtel de Glace in Quebec City, Canada was celebrated with its very own icy throne. WotW reader Lavignac visited the hotel and snapped a few pics of the throne at the event.
The artisans took time-lapse video footage of the making of the ice throne. The throne looks even better under lights at night. Check it out!
- Another creative Season 4 DVD/Blu-ray release party is happening across the ocean in London, at the hotel Andaz. The Evening Standard reports that HBO has created The All Men Must Dine restaurant, open from February 13th to February 15th. The menu will offer meals and cocktails inspired by Westeros. Fans have until tonight at 11:59PM (GMT) to enter for a chance to attend the special event, at HBO UK.
