The stars of Game of Thrones head to Los Angeles for the season 6 red carpet premiere

poster1The Game of Thrones season 6 premiere is almost here! And it’s a lot closer for a group of people- the stars of the show and the lucky others who will be joining them for the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on April 10th.

This coming Sunday, the first episode of the season will be screened, with many of the Game of Thrones cast members in attendance, as promised by the charitable campaign for the International Rescue Committee. One winning fan is joining the cast at the premiere and the after-party.

Many of the stars have already been spotted in Los Angeles or on their way!

Kristofer Hivju has joined Instagram for the occasion, sharing a video and a photo today of his journey to Los Angeles:

First post ever! LA next! #tormundgiantsbane #gameofthrones #kristoferhivju

Alfie Allen‘s in town this week so we can expect to see him at the premiere as well:

Liam Cunningham shared a photo of the view in LA:



Lena Headey
, who actually lives in Los Angeles, posted Wednesday that she was “back:”

I’m BACK people … Riding in my fancy Uber … I went select not X … Stepping up my game ?

We have something else to look forward this afternoon. Canal+, the European network who broadcasts Game of Thrones in Spain, will be airing a three-minute video today, at 10:15 PM Spanish time. (That’s six hours ahead of Eastern US time.) The video is a teaser of a longer special that will be airing later, closer to the season premiere in Spain. The video is focused on the filming of Game of Thrones in Spanish locations.

As soon as this newest material becomes available online this afternoon, we’ll share it here, so keep your eyes peeled!
Thanks to Javi of Los Siete Reinos for his help with the Spanish news translation.

    1. I can’t help thinking that some of these people are getting flown out to LA because their character is about to kick the bucket!

    2. Are there usually leaks after the red carpet premiere? It seems likely, so by Monday morning, we may know for sure what happens with Jon Snow? (or at least, whatever happens in Episode 1).

    3. The episode will screen in three days and we still don’t have a title or episode summary. D&D sure aren’t playing around with the lockdown.

      HBO should have released a full press release by now, right? Only one episode will air in April, so it would only include one synopsis which would probably be as non-specific as possible. “Jaime returns; Sansa and Theon run; Jon rots.”

      Are they holding back on the press release because they contractually have to list Harington as a regular? (See the cast list on the HBO Schedule page.)

    4. Tormund is the funniest character in the book(in my opinion) and his conversations with Jon always make me laugh. Kristofer is awesome as Tormund. He is the MAN! So i follow…

    5. It is exciting seeing all the stars starting to filter in for the red carpet premiere. I wonder if some of the American shows will be there…like ET on the red carpet, sort of thing. Mostly I am hoping that someone, will “secretly” let loose with a few spoilers after, like the title.

      I haven’t seen any winner announced. I would love to go and I did enter, but at this point….if I did win, I would have nothing to wear, need to get hair done and oh yeah, get out to LA. From where I live it actually isn’t that far via plane…2.5 hours I guess. Good luck to everyone who entered. It would be such a hoot if one of “us” from WotW actually won it. We could ply them with all sorts of goodies when they return to SPILL THE BEANS. 🙂

      I guess for me, this Sunday really marks the countdown….makes it much more real. 17 days!! That is just over two weeks, we can do it.

    7. Can’t wait for Monday spoilers, I just want an answer damnit. enough with the “I’m dead” – “he’s dead”.

      And if he is dead, well then Kit you’re the only actor on the show who died and didn’t get a farewell tour.

    8. JCDavis,

      I entered the contest…cost me $100…and all I got was a lousy T-shirt, lol.

      Anyway, it would be cool for one of us to get to go!

      I dont think that he is coming back in episode 1… they might drag it out a little bit.

    10. About the car picture. I read an interview with Nikolaj in a Danish paper a few years ago and he said that the salary was much less than what people expect and that he certainly hadn’t become rich. It might have changed as the show became huge of course but I doubt they are getting paid movie stars amounts. Alfie takes random pics of cars he thinks are cool. And he has a flat mate. Doesn’t sound filthy rich to me.

      taim,

      My money is on episode 2 or the last sequence of 1.

      I think its more and more likely it will be later this season , between episode 3-6. They have been talking a lot of Jon being a corpse and Mel having doubts. I think she wont be able to do her thing at first and it will take some time.

        Quote  Reply

    12. I’d be willing to bet Theon’s lost penis that Jon Snow won’t be resurrected in E1. My prediction is that Melandrise will try in E1 but fail, and that’s where the episode will end. With Jon Snow seemingly dead for good. The words “And now his watch is ended” will probably be the last line of E1, to signify for once and for all that Jon Snow is truly dead.

      Jon will be resurrected in E2/3. My guess is Bran Stark and possibly the Night King will be involved in bringing back Jon. He is, after all, the “ice” in the song and ice is what will bring him back. I have a feeling Bran & NK will be entering an uneasy alliance through the Wiernet, and that scene of the NK grabbing Bran’s arm is not an attack but a way to show us that they can communicate via the green sight. This will probably happen in E2 or E3.

      That’s my speculation. We’ll see if I’m right.

        Quote  Reply

    13. taim,

      I agree. Jon Snow coming back is just too big a spoiler for it to be revealed in a screener. (And you KNOW it would be revealed as soon as the premier ends.) That’s why I think it won’t happen in E1.

        Quote  Reply

    14. taim,

      Who said it had to be Mel? It might be Bran working his magic through Ghost? His visions will highlight the importance of Jon. You get the feeling that Bran & also Sansa are about to become serious players in the game.

    15. We ought to prepare for the onslaught of foilers from trolls after the LA premiere. Many attention-seekers will post their fanfiction claiming they are spoilers of the first episode.

    16. Queenofthrones,

      There’s too much shit for him to do and things to set up before the Bastardbowl. Also there’s no point in dragging out the mystery within the season too, we’ve already waited nearly a year for the resolution. No need to keep the audience distracted, there are bigger things on the plate for Jon than just resurrecting.

      Episode 2 or 3 at the latest seem like reasonable choices.

        Quote  Reply

    17. phantomstrife,

      I remember Davos and Mel actors though saying a huge scene takes place in Ep 1…we’ll see what that is. I’m guessing its Davos’ scene where he says “Apologies for what you’re about to see..”

    18. Cast members are starting to pop up on the US late night schedule.

      Apr. 7th (tonight): Liam Cunningham on Conan O’Brien
      Apr. 11th: Sophie Turner on Conan
      Apr. 12th: John Bradley on Conan
      Apr. 13th: Maisie Williams on Late Night with Seth Meyers
      Apr. 14th: Emilia Clarke on Conan

      I don’t see anyone on with Fallon or Kimmel yet but I’m going to assume there will be before the 24th. Colbert is in reruns all next week. Seth had Carice recently but I wouldn’t be surprised if he has more.

        Quote  Reply

    19. phantomstrife,

      Indeed. Let’s see what Jon would need to do before BastardBowl.

      -Take care of the coup de etat at Castle Black
      -Accept that his death released him from his vows
      -Realize that if Westeros is to survive Long Night 2, he will need to free the North from the Boltons
      -Rally the wildings to his side
      -Attempt to rally Stark loyalists to his side before BastardBowl

      That’s a lot to do.

      Any of those things (except the first) could be done by other characters, with Jon appearing at a Triumphant moment to rally others together.

      And as for the first, Jon is not going to use a lawyer-speak technicality to get himself out of his vows “LOL I technically died and the vow said ‘until my death’ so screw ya’ll!!!” He’s more mature and honorable than that. He’ll go elsewhere because he thinks it’s the right thing to do regardless of his vows, and/or because The Watch won’t take him back / doesn’t exist anymore.

      Whatever the reason, they are definitely holding back. Silicon Valley and Veep both have episode titles and summaries and they premiere right after GoT.

    24. The fact that they did not send out any advance copies of the 1st couple of episodes to critics(usually 3/4) suggest that JS will be back earlier rather than later.

      Well, I like Alfie’s taste in cars. Pretty sure that’s an MGA which were built in the UK in the late 1950’s. I drove an MG in the late 1960’s, but sadly it wasn’t that model 😉

    30. I’m with the fan theory that Jon will be re-born i.e. NOT resurrected once they burn his body. We had smoke coming from the castle black set that seems to have been forgotten.
      In which case Kit would be correct, Jon Snow is dead and not coming back as it will be a new character who may or may not (I suspect will) have Jon’s old memories.
      This would tie in to Danny & her walk in the fire with the birth of the dragons.

    31. I fear this event, truly, I do. I know I don’t want the entire episode spoiled for me, but there is no way I can just resist when all that information is out there, waiting for me to absorb it.

    32. Maybe I’m overthinking, but this makes me think Jon won’t be resurrected in episode 1 (if he is brought back) because they wouldn’t want that to leak…

        Quote  Reply

    33. My guess is that Jon Snow won’t be resurrected, and that if we see Kit Harington again it will be in a Bran vision, either in a flashback or as a spirit of some kind. I’m glad to see people start to slowly ease away from this idea.

      Jon Snow is the bridge between Danny(Fire) and Bran/Sansa(Ice). As he is both fire and Ice! He is too important to kill off at this point in the story.

      It is pretty well known that Conan is a GoT’s super fan. Since he has the actors on one day after the other, he will probably do what he did last year and make it a GoT’s themed week. Fun to watch.

    44. Rick,

      That doesn’t explain that the photo is from a set that has appeared multiple times in at least 1 BTS video and is the central location of an entire massive battle episode. Don’t tell me it’s a flashback because Jon never fought a day in his life before he joined the Night’s Watch. He’s clearly wearing battle gear, as well as LONGCLAW in that picture. All the inside sources say it’s happening. His resurrection would make perfect narrative sense.

      There is no way they George or the showrunners will blow past that simply for the sake of unpredictability.

    47. “This season’s cool because it resets the chess board and people get partnered with new people,” Cunningham says. “Last year it was ‘worlds colliding.’ This year, it’s almost like you’re in a different drama series. There are new plans – and they’re enormous plans. There are new loyalties. There are new tensions. There are tensions between people where there were not tensions before. The words on the page are as delicious as what we’ve had in the past. And it’s culminating in some of the most remarkable television that’s ever been made. It’s astonishing.”

    54. Jon won’t be raised in episode 1. The rez will most probably happen in episode 2 or 3. Episode 1 will likely feature mourning lannisters, confused Mel, distraught Davos, running Sansa and Theon, hopeless Arya, reintroduction of Rickon n Osha and AWESOME BRAN STARK.

      The top 5 actors (Harrington, Heady, Dinklage, NCW, Clarke) make 300K per episode. I’d imagine the rest make various lesser amounts, depending on their positions and screen time.

    56. It boggles my mind the amount of people who still allow themselves that littlest bit of doubt that Jon will be back. What more do you need?!

      The lack of episode titles is bumming me out. They’re so fun to chew on before the start of the season. If you (HBO, D&D, whoever) don’t want us superfans guessing things about storylines, then name your episodes ambiguously!

      I hope to god that this season doesn’t end on a cliffhanger again. For the most part, the endings haven’t really been cliffhangers (Dany’s dragons are born, Sam sees the white walkers, Mhysa, Mhysa! Pizza! Pizza! and Arya sets sail for Braavos) they’ve just set up the next phase of the story. It’s crazy to think that the cast will have their hands on S7 scripts in about 3 months and filming spoilers will start in 4. For those who think 17 days is torturous, it’s really not. It will fly by 🙂

      It’s nutty that those Big Bang Theory people make about 5x that per episode. Even nuttier that no one in the UK makes even close to that kind of money per episode, which is why they all want to hit it big in the U.S. Matt Smith was only paid 1 million pounds for his whole tenure on Doctor Who. When David Tennant announced he was leaving, they offered him 1.5 million pounds to stay on for an additional year, which is astronomical in Britain.

    58. Jon Snow will rise again when his body is finally cremated with his sword as he is a targaryan. (His father being not Ned but Rhaegar Targaryen). Hurrah!!! He will then form an allegance with the wildlings initially but long term – it will be with Danerys and Tyrion Lannister for the ice and fire conclusion battle of dragons v white walkers. Just guessing as I haven’t read the books.
