sansa

The more we learn about life on a Game of Thrones set, the more we can appreciate everything that went into creating that on-screen grittiness.

Sophie Turner, Emilia Clarke and Liam Cunningham recently talked about their experiences on Game of Thrones, with Clarke discussing the complex emotions she feels to be leaving the show behind, Cunningham hyping the new season, and Turner dishing on the not-so-stellar hygiene she had to adopt. A maid with purple serpents in her hair, indeed!

A New Game of Thrones Promo from HBO Asia – “Tapestry”

Tapestry

Tapestry by Bubug

An interesting new Game of Thrones promo has surfaced over the last few days, never before seen by fans. While the entirely animated video holds no season 8 material (all quotes are from earlier seasons) and we’ve not been able to confirm its official status, the beautifully crafted promo was made by Mirari, a company who has worked with HBO Asia on previous teasers. The video features the animated creation of a tapestry, using artwork by artist Bubug. It’s noted on Bubug’s Deviantart page that the illustration was made by them “for Mirari + Co for the Tapestry – Game of Thrones 2019 promotion.”

What better way to remember your time on Game of Thrones than a life-sized statue of yourself?

We know from previous news stories that actors from Game of Thrones have taken home various mementos from the show — Maisie Williams took home the Ned Stark-esque brown leather jacket from Season 7, for example. Kit Harington has expressed a desire to keep Longclaw once the series ends, although the showrunners have become less than willing to part with it. So maybe a life-sized statue will fill the void instead?

704 - Winterfell - Arya, Sansa 1

We have been waiting more than a year for season eight and we still have to wait a tiny bit more… but how much more, exactly? I, for one, cannot take this excruciating limbo for any second longer than necessary. Though we do know the final season is coming back to our screens on April, a return to the classic Game of Thrones premiere month, beyond that we have no clue, and we won’t… until this Sunday, that is! What a twist!

Kit Harington reflects on eight seasons of Game of Thrones, Richard Madden chooses sides, and HBO CEO “in awe” of Season 8

Jon Snow Winterfell Battle of the Bastards 609

In the final days of filming Game of ThronesKit Harington (Jon Snow) received a visit from GQ, to discuss and reflect on his time over the show’s soon to be historic 8 season run. “The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us,” says Kit. And it’s a fitting start to the interview – no one in the cast has wielded a sword more often, or spent more days on and off set preparing for battle after battle than Kit (Don’t @ me, fact-checkers). “Everyone was broken at the end. I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so fucking tiring. We were sleep deprived.
