It’s been over a year since we were forced to say “goodbye” to Missandei of Naath, but we certainly haven’t seen the last of Nathalie Emmanuel. In a recent interview, Emmanuel took a break from discussing her many upcoming projects to talk about Missandei, her on-set rapport with Emilia Clarke and why it’s important for shows to feature diverse casts.
This has been a long year, with a lot of strange things happening in the world. Not a lot of fun, for obvious reasons, and unfortunately no Con of Thrones this summer. As it happens, the con is when we usually unload a good amount of the Game of Thrones merch that comes our way, as trivia prizes and rewards for “Find Sue in the dining area and win a mug!”-type games. Reorganizing for my recent move reminded me I needed to find something to do with some of this goodness, so as promised, here it is, your super summer Game of Thrones worldwide giveaway! It won’t make up for the murder hornets but hopefully it will put a smile on your face.
We have FIVE prize packages, loaded with fun. Leave a comment to enter and you will be entered to win all, with winners chosen randomly. (Complete rules listed below the prizes, with additional ways to enter!)
Well, this is unexpected! It’s also technically still just a rumor, but we’ll take what we can get at this point: there could be some big news happening with regard to the Game of Thrones spinoff show The House of the Dragon (which will delve into some of the history of House Targaryen) and it has to do with casting.
Starved Game of Thrones fans: I, too, have been suffering from EDOGOTN (Extreme Drought of Game of Thrones News). To cure this, I’d been hard at work these last few months wondering what our favorite characters have been up to all this time. However, it turned out the task was too mighty to undertake on my own, and so reinforcements needed to be called in. Enter fellow Watchers on the Wall writers Petra, Akash, and Samantha, who ably stepped in to help complete this vitally important work. So, what exactly has EVERY CHARACTER who has ever appeared on GOT think of quarantine? Dive in, and let’s find out.
Calling all Game of Thrones fans and A Song of Ice and Fire fans: He’s done it! The Maestro has done it! George R. R. Martin has completed(!!!)…a blog post detailing his latest updates on the definitely-not-yet-complete but hopefully-further-along-than-it-was-prior-to-quarantine The Winds of Winter. Its predecessor A Dance with Dragons came out NINE years ago next month. Yes, readers, that is correct. Understandably, fans have been getting a little antsy for good news, what with the state of the world in constant flux and all. Hopefully, George’s latest post is a welcome relief of stress. Rest assured that he is, as ever, working, on it. How much so? Let’s check out what he says.
Perhaps you thought it was inevitable, perhaps you thought it could never happen, but two of the biggest franchises in fantasy are coming together: the Game of Thrones cast is going to play Dungeons & Dragons. (For charity).
During a recent webinar with other television directors, David Nutter discussed his sense of professional pride for the Red Wedding and his “amazing” experience watching fans react to it.
This won’t come as a huge shock but it’s a disappointment nonetheless for Game of Thrones fans: due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mischief Management has made the decision to postpone Con of Thrones this year. The annual convention celebrating GoT, A Song of Ice and Fire and the worlds of George R.R. Martin was set to take place July 17–19, 2020. Along with the postponement until 2021 comes an exciting change-up.
In addition to Con of Thrones, Mischief has secured new dates for all its 2020 events — Con of Thrones, LeakyCon Orlando, PodcastCon, and LeakyCon Denver — while keeping the events in the same host cities as previously announced.
Each event’s rescheduled dates are as follows…

It’s been one year since the end of Game of Thrones (exactly- today is the anniversary!) and Emmy-nominated star Carice van Houten is still full of opinions about her time on the show, and the controversial final season. She shared her thoughts with Insider this week, in a new interview.
We’ve all read plenty of interviews from actors on what it was like to be a part of the global phenomenon that was Game of Thrones. But what was it like to *almost* have the world of Westeros on your acting resume?
