Game of Thrones Interview Roundup: Four Days Until the Premiere!

19

Only 4 days and counting as the cast mercilessly teases us with high expectations for the newest season of Game of Thrones. Petra and Nate have rounded up the best interview highlights from the last few days, as the cast and crew of the show make the press rounds!

Writer/producer Bryan Cogman talks to Entertainment Weekly about season 6 being a “next act” and what we can expect in general this year.

There are a lot of thematic and explicit callbacks to season 1, and the seasons that preceded this one, and even to events that preceded them — in terms of the mythology. There’s also a trend that began in season 5 and continues even more so in this season of worlds colliding, with characters meeting in hopefully very unexpected ways.

Cogman talks about the challenges of this year, being the producer who interacts with the online community and so much more, so check out the complete interview at EW.


Yahoo! talks to the cast and crew, with Isaac Hempstead Wright discussing the Three-Eyed Raven helping Bran this season:

He’s trying to teach Bran what he can use his powers for. There’s also a slight sense every now and again that Bran might be able to interact with these past figures and characters through his visions — we’re not quite sure.

Alfie Allen teases what’s next for Theon and the Greyjoys:

He needs to go back to the Iron Islands and confront his family. He needs to go and clear things up with his sister. Apologize to her for not going with her when she went to try and save him as Reek.

Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, Bryan Cogman, and more talk about the new season’s stories so check out Yahoo!‘s complete piece.


In The Hollywood Reporter, the cast predicts audience reactions to the Season 6 premiere: “The Red Woman.”

Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth): “You’re joking. You’re joking!”

DeObia Oparei (Areo Hotah): “Oh my god!”

Joseph Naufahu (Khal Moro): “Damn! Oh damn!”

Kristian Nairn (Hodor): “Hodor!”

Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton): “I can’t believe they …”

The Hollywood Reporter had to cut off the end of McElhatton’s quote for spoilers which leaves our minds racing for the conclusion.

Head on over to The Hollywood Reporter to read more predictions and to further whet your Season 6 appetites!


Iwan Rheon, Alfie Allen, Liam Cunningham, John Bradley, Isaac Hempstead Wright and Kristofer Hivju took to ABC’s Good Morning America for a humorous interview, to further prepare us for Sunday night.


John Bradley discussed his need, as an actor, to focus on his character’s “tiny moments” rather than the larger “puzzle” of the Game of Thrones narrative and Hannah Murray explained her reluctance to read about Game of Thrones online. “I think if I started to read that stuff I’d probably quickly end up reading something about how someone didn’t like my face and get upset.”

Liam Cunningham and Carice van Houten talked about the dreary circumstances Davos and Melisandre find themselves in at the beginning of season 6 and their character’s evolution moving forward.

Iwan Rheon and Michael McElhatton hinted at unexpected character crossovers next season, the Bolton’s knack for maintaining power and Roose’s full-time job, “keeping the reins tight on [his] son and stuff like that.”


Be sure to stay tuned to Watchers as we keep you posted on all things Game of Thrones as the on-season officially begins!

    1. I really love every interview with Carice. Melisandre is one of the most interesting characters, I’m really curious about her story.

    3. I have a big question about the Iron Islands storyline this season. I’d love to hear people’s thoughts on this:

      If Yara is in the Iron Islands in episode two (as confirmed by her promotional picture) and Theon decides to go by himself instead of being convinced by Yara, may that mean that the Kingsmoot actually happens in episode two without Theon, which is what we have believed for months? Was that ever properly confirmed (Theon’s actor and the mid-season director spotted in the Kingsmoot scene), or was it just that Allen and Bender were on the area when the Kingsmoot was filmed? Maybe they filmed several scenes…

      If that’s not the case, what is Yara doing in episode two, exactly? Fleeing, maybe? If she tries and fails to take Balon’s crown but Euron bests her, isn’t that basically the Kingmsoot? Then Yara and Theon reunite and… what, another one?

      I’m quite confused about how this will play out.

    5. Flayed Potatoes,

      My point is…

      Is she just going to let Euron take the crown without putting up a fight first? I’m sure Theon and Yara will have to flee after the mid-season, but right there at the beginning, when Euron arrives and kills Balon to supplant him… Does Yara just stand by? If she doesn’t… well, doesn’t this mean we get the kingsmoot around episode two after all?

        Quote  Reply

    6. Luka Nieto,

      Yeah that’s true. I assume the show might take some liberties with the timeline, if that’s the case (like how Mel arrived at CB in one episode).

      Or we don’t see the Ironborn in episodes 3 and 4 (or something), so the show will give Theon enough time to return. We don’t know if Winterfell is ahead of the Iron Islands when it comes to the timeline. It’s all very confusing and now that you mention it, some things don’t add up.

      Maybe there’s a twist we won’t be anticipating! I’m actually very curious about show Euron now, especially since we haven’t heard him speak at all in the trailer.

    9. Kamali,

      Yes. Well, not exactly. Jack Bender was around the set in the days the scene was filmed, and he directed episodes five and six. I don’t remember whether or not there was any other reason for us to think it happens in the mid-season.

    10. Luka Nieto,

      If I remember the decision of a Kingsmoot, per The Reader, does not bind someone who is not at the Kingsmoot. What impact, if any, that this might have on his storyline, given his “condition” is unclear

        Quote  Reply

    11. Bran might be able to interact with these past figures and characters through his visions

      I know in the books Bran can make “sounds” that someone in the past, such as Ned, can “hear” as the rustling of leaves or wind, and perhaps the “Theon” that Reek heard was from the future, or it could have been from the present, but interacting with the past, and thus presumably influencing events, which would influence the future, is a slippery slope that could, taken to the extreme, result in re-writing the whole narrative. I mean what’s to stop Bran from going back and interacting with Jon and indicating who his parents are or to Ned or Robb, etc.

    12. Luka Nieto,

      My guess about the Iron Islands:

      Euron shows up in E2 and tosses Balon off the rope bridge. He then declares himself the new king.

      Yara fumes, and starts plotting, but no one listens to her because she’s a woman. They might’ve picked her over Theon, but they’ll pick Euron over her.

      Theon then shows up at II at the end of E2.

      E3/4 will have Yara and Theon reconnecting. Yara decides to call for a Kingsmoot, claiming that Theon is the true king because he is Balon’s son.

      E5 will have the actual Kingsmoot itself. Euron wins easily. Euron then sends Yara and Theon on a suicide mission to Volantris.

        Quote  Reply

    13. Luka Nieto,

      I’m not sure they are going to flee, seeing as they seem to have inherited Victarion’s plot, and that plot would seem to hinge on them having been sent to Slaver’s Bay by Euron. Plus, why would they decide to up and run to Daenerys on their own? That would seem kind of left-field to me.

    14. Darkrobin,

      Rebooting the entire storyline as of Season 6 Episode 1, with Bran able to provide wise advice this time round – “Dad, when Littlefinger says not to trust him, you really, really shouldn’t trust him” … now that would be an interesting narrative choice!

      They were persuaded by his ideas to build a new $25 billion wall to keep out the WW, and to deport the Wildlings (even though they were helping). His pointless and circular rhetoric also sat well with the simpletons who man the Wall.

    20. Luka Nieto, I would bet that you have the gist of it. I expect the left-over Crows material will be pretty succinctly covered, letting them dive into the Winter stuff: whatever that is! That would free them up to flee to Essos: after all, if they’ve heard anything about Daeny (and given that they are a sea-faring people, that is not implausible), then she would seem like the best ally to gain in order to reclaim the Iron Islands. It probably would wind up merging Yara/Asha’s amorphous storyline from the books with her uncles extraneous plotline: and perhaps so edited it would be worthwhile.

      Same here. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt and say HBO is only allowing certain questions, but then I remember one interview where the actor who plays Euron got asked the same question (even though he has nothing to do with Jon), and I think that some people are just bad at their job. I feel bad for the cast, who have interesting things to say as well.

      He said something like ” I have no comment” and then the rest of the cast laughed. TBH, i don’t really get on why this is so funny though. maybe it’s their inside joke or I just simply don’t have any of humour sense.

      I’ll try, but a lot of it is sort of muttered nonsense: “Pfft. I’m not …. No comment!” The “no comment” part was the clearest of everything he said, and I think that’s what made the others laugh: not touching that one. I also think they were giggly from before, too, and it seems like some of the banter may have been cut.

      I really really wish that we can pretend that scene is never existed, but since Alfie said that Theon will feel sorry for it, well, we cannot leave it behind

    27. I will say you’ll see character versions and interpretations that are in some of the previous books that we hadn’t gotten to yet.

      New characters or existing characters?

      it was our darkest and most troubling season, but I believe very strongly that that’s drama.

      DorD said Sansa replacing Jeyne was done for drama to make us care/be invested.

      It’s a very easy, and frankly very lazy thing to say, “Oh, they’re just doing this for shock value.”

      Luka Nieto,

      I’m a bit confused. Was it leaked that the Kingsmoot was supposed to happen mid Season?

      I think spy reports connected the director with the scene. Since we know what order the director’s episodes are coming in, that might be what’s informing the guesses. But is that when Euron is introduced? That seems kinda late, unless he’s really not a major character (has the actor done any publicity at all???)

    33. I wish everyone would quit complaining about the travel time. First, Ned and company go from Winterfell to Kingslanding in the space of less than two episodes. In a slow moving entourage. And second, we are all aware of how hard it is for them to fit everything they need into one season. They can’t take two episodes off for Littlefinger to get from point A to point B. Traveling is only fun if it’s w Tyrion. Well, it can still be dramatic but this isn’t Lord of the Rings.

    37. Wild guess here of the missing story link in show Theon’s story thread:

      Could it possibly be an element that has clearly been used in the books, and might possibly have been delayed until this season?

      (Like alot of things!)

      Bran through the Weir trees is connecting with Theon in “Dance”. He’s guiding him. He’s taking a personal interest in him. It’s more than just haunting him in Winterfell for obvious reaons – as might have originally been thought. Because based on the preview chapter from “Winds”, it’s looking like Bran will obviously save him somehow from execution by Stannis. So he is following him and taking an interest. He’s important to Bran who we all know is focused on the upcoming battle with the Whitewalkers.

      To me this could be foreshadowing that Theon has a part to play in the endgame and Bran knows it and is guiding him. God knows what Theon’s purpose is, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the threat of Euron.

      Isaac has said in many interviews that it’s like he knows how the “Westeros movie” ends. He’s ahead of the players. What does he know about Theon’s purpose?

      Maybe in the show (for some reason)…

      Bran tells Theon his destiny is the Iron Islands.

      Or maybe not!

    44. Ben J,

      Yes, this is my guess too.

      I think Melisandre uses some kind of glamour spell, to make everyone think that Jon is cremated (it might be the body of someone like Thorne, if he’s defeated by Davos, Edd, Wun Wun and the wildlings, which I think will happen). Anyway, this is my guess at the moment: (1) we won’t see Jon resurrected in Episode 1, (2) Melisandre will do something bizarre, like glamour (which they haven’t used yet in the show, so it would be a big shock to non-book readers, (3) other characters are deceived into thinking that Jon has been burned. Whether the audience is also deceived, or whether we would get to see Melisandre’s trickery, I’m not sure, but some quotes from people who attended the premiere make me think the latter (there were quotes which said that an amazing act of magic in the last scene will basically ‘set the scene’ for more sorcery in the next episode). I might have it totally wrong, and the ‘sorcery’ will actually be something related to Bran or the Night King or Bloodraven or Kinvara, but my money is on Melisandre at the moment.

    45. Sean C.,

      They’re fleeing, that much I know for sure. I’m also pretty convinced they have some ironborn on their side, as the original rumor (long before we saw Yara with a Volantene courtesan) mentioned Yara and Theon were with an ironborn army. So, they may want to meet Dany and make an alliance before Euron can… which is what Victarion wants in the books, by the way. Yes, he is sent by Euron, but Victarion has his own plans. I imagine they’ll avoid the silliness of the books in which Euron trusts Victarion (in this case it would be Yara and Theon) to do his bidding… only for Victarion to decide he’ll make an alliance with Dany all by himself and screw Euron (this stupidity could be redeemed if in TWOW it is revealed that Euron predicted Victarion’s betrayal and planned for it, perhaps even following him to Slaver’s Bay). Anwyay, I think they’ll avoid that and make Yara and Theon have their own agency from the moment they leave, instead of Euron sending them and either trusting them for no reason or having a convoluted plan to double-cross the double-crossers.

    46. Luka Nieto,

      Tbh Luka, I don’t think Euron in the books (and possibly in the show) cares very much whether Victarion/Yara betrays him or not, as long as they bring Daenerys back. When that’s done, he can easily remove them from the game. At least that’s how I think he thinks.

    53. For what it’s worth, Sky (in the UK) is listing ep 1 as containing “very strong violence”. Usually it’s just “violence” or, more often, “strong violence”. They are repeating S5 at the moment and the only one of those with the extra “very” is ep 4 (Sons of the Harpy). Might be a mistake, but could be a bloodbath, the cast have been stressing action from the get-go rather than waiting until later episodes.

      On a related train of thought, we heard a while ago about a special effect which hasn’t been used yet but could potentially have been in S4, 5 or 6 and there have been quite a few suggestions about what it might be. So I’m gonna add another one: someone recently posted that in the books

      a giant literally rips someone apart. We know Wun Wun is having a smashing time with gates this series and I wondered if it could be him? Giants first appeared in S4 and to combine them with the rest of the live action is difficult at the best of times. I would have thought doing something like that realistically, if it was in close up, would be really difficult. But very satisfying for the viewer if it’s someone we hate on the receiving end!

    55. In case these are still new for you all, here are some nice countdown posters from the facebookpage of HBO Holland:

      https://www.facebook.com/HBOnl/?fref=ts

      First is Daenerys’ hand in front of her army and Meereen.
      Second is Drogon’s claw in front of his mountain peak he dropped Dany off last season.
      Tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday, they will post the last three posters.

      Ooo, I love Khaleesi’s hand with Meereen in the background! Is that Drogon for Day 4? Are there other days? No Day 3 yet, I take it, but I was hoping there might be 6, 7, and so on.

    57. FYI I’m having a weird issue that I have never had before where the page isn’t refreshing, but is setting itself back to when I last looked at the page. Even if I do a “hard” reload. It even resets the countdown timer.

      Only thing that fixed it was to do a history / cache wipe. I’m on chrome btw.

    58. Connor,
      I did think about him at Hardhome, but the wights are at least a little CGI as well and it wasn’t very close up as far as I remember (although I might be wrong)? I was thinking more along the lines of

      when the Mountain is eye gouging Oberyn, that kind of close up where you can see everything in gory detail – bleee! 🙁 but if it had been a real Oberyn and a giant instead of the Mountain. That would be very difficult to do effectively so it looked real.

      It’s probably nothing of the sort but I seem to remember when the special effects guys talked about this it was something that would be a real challenge and a mix of live and CGI might fit the bill 🙂

      Demon Monkey,

      Seriously. If you have a problem with unrealistic travel times, that means you think dragons and whitewalkers actually exist

      The unrealistic travel times don’t bother me at all. However, I did find it strange that, after the near meet up with Jon, Bran & Co walked from there to the Nightfort, met Sam and Gilly, then Sam & Gilly walked to Castle Black, met with Maester Aemon, all before Jon rode back to Castle Black. Either those folks walk really fast or Jon’s horse was really slow, or he got lost along the way.

      Regarding Euron and Victarion, I have no doubt that Euron has some hidden purpose behind sending Victarion. There’s no way he would just hand a man who hates him the Dragonhorn if Victarion could really use it the way he thinks he can. Indeed, Vic’s whole story is watching him be oblivious to how first Euron and then Moqorro are clearly planning to screw him over somehow.

    61. Isabelle,

      Thanks! It’s fun to have the option of different emoticons besides standard happy/sad.

      Ok I guess I don’t have the right windows version on my laptop to use any of them. I believe It has XP. I no longer receive updates/support according to a tab that appears at the top when I open up a browser. It’s been giving that message for months now. And I refuse to shell out 600 bucks on a new computer right now.
