Game of Thrones News Roundup: 3 days Until the Premiere!

5

Rally the realm, grab some ale, sit back and relax. “The Red Woman” takes the stage Sunday night and we’ve got you covered for everything Game of Thrones until then.

With Variety, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss discuss who’s actually winning this game of thrones, what characters they identify with, underestimated characters and much more. Isaac Hempstead Wright revels in a super-powered Bran this season at TV Line. Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey joke superfans, male nudity, and so much more on The Late Late Show with James Corden. New York City hosted a Game of Thrones themed art exhibit last night where Tech Insider was in attendance and Maisie Williams pranked some fans at Nylon.

Writing such dark and serious show, it’s nice to see these guys bring a sense of humor to set even if they did kill Tyrion this season.

Viewers were stunned to see footage of Bran’s visions in the Season 6 trailers notably with The Night’s King and standing after he was paralyzed in Season 1. With TV Line, Isaac Hempstead Wright shines some light on Bran’s gift:

“Odds are, it’s a vision. When they released the still of that, I think they wrote underneath, ‘This is Bran in a vision.’ And everybody just looked at the picture and said, ‘Oh, he’s standing!’”

He teases some “some really cool visions” as the Greenseer’s powers grow.

In the previous seasons, there have been vague little glimpses of some of the powers Bran might possess. But this season, we see them come into their own.

Isaac reviews the young Stark’s growth over the series and teases his “biggest season” at TV Line.


James Corden proves to be the luckiest late night host by having two of Game of Thrones loveliest ladies on his show in just one week. Last night, Lena Headey (Cersei) jokes about the superfan nurse she had after her Walk of Shame. On Monday night, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) discuss male nudity (#FreeTheP!) and equality with the cast of Broad City.

Check out the clips below and head on over to CBS for the full episodes!


The immersive art experience is a one of a kind exhibit that brings even more hype for Season 6 and also everyone’s favorite Unsullied Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) and wildling Hannah Murray (Gilly) were in attendance.

    3. When i hear or read (on twitter ) the three of the people who produce and write GoT i see why we get Tyrion the saint on the show, while all his villainous thoughts (to rape Cersei and kill Jaime) and other ones got transferred to Jaime (he said he will kill Tyrion when he find him).
      Same with Sansa, they love Sophie so much, they may write scenes just for the actress, but i am ok with that because i love Sansa too. I can’t wait for the new season.

    4. “The showrunners also discuss this season’s newcomer: Samwell and Gilly’s baby (played by twins).”

      Oh so the baby finally grew up??

    5. “That’s what [Tyrion] says right before he dies.”

      Well, I suppose this confirms that

      Weiss was indeed joking in that one video where he said “Season 6” after Kit said he wanted to warg into a wolf.

      Haha, fooled ya with that tag didn’t I?

      Haha, was that D was laying down some unsubtle hype for S7? Can’t wait for it!

      D&D seem like nice guys. I personally think they do well with Tyrion and his lines.

    8. I wonder if the landslide posted earlier has anything to do with the actor in a real, dangerous situation they talked about in the video. Or, could it be the flamethrower used for dragon fire in the Dothraki scene? Didn’t someone catch on fire in that?

      Took me a while to figure out how to delete the browsing history on my droid. (Hey, I am old). But it appears to have done the trick. Got to take care of the laptop after work.

      I think when I tried it before on my laptop I did not delete all of it. Chrome has it set to 30 days, I believe.

    16. I am still having issues with the site loading as well, and I have deleted cookies, caches, and bookmarks. This goes for three browser types as well (Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari on my iPhone).

      When I delete my cache the site is up to date, but it will not update again until I go back and delete them again.

      For now I’ve just been following the Twitter feed to stay up to speed…

      The interviews were very funny, but that Maisie stunt was hilarious. Soon, my friends. Soon.

      Am I getting confused with dates/timezones or weren’t we supposed to get GOT actresses on GMA today?

      You’re not confused. Apparently they were pre-empted by an hour-long interview with Hilary Clinton. Maybe they’ll air it tomorrow.

    23. ysf,

      He was arrested in King’s Landing and voluntold for The Wall, as a member of the Night’s Watch. We don’t know what mission he was on, but I assume it was in King’s Landing and that getting arrested and sent to The Wall wasn’t part of the plan.

    24. There was an interesting little reveal in the video interview with Benioff and Weiss that I hadn’t heard before, though maybe some of you had. Apparently Locke was originally slated to die in Season 3. He was going to get shoved into the Bear Pit and devoured. However, Benioff and Weiss liked Noah Taylor and his performance so much that they kept the character around for another season so that they could use him in another storyline (the hunt for Bran North of the Wall). It’s one of the only times that they’ve deliberately kept a character alive because they liked the actor’s performance so much. Of course, it was easier to do in this case, since Locke was an original character.

      So for those of you who were a little sad that Locke died so abruptly in Season 4 (as I was), just know that we wound up getting more of Noah Taylor’s performance than we were originally supposed to! Your opinions on whether being eaten by a bear or having his neck snapped by Bran-warging-into-Hodor constitutes a better death for the character may vary 😉

    25. ysf,

      That’s a good question. I wonder if he did continue on to the Wall, after all(after Harrenhal). Bronn also mentioned going behind the Wall for what he called “work”. He said this during the drinking game in Tyrion’s tent with Shae present. Everybody knows what kind of work Bronn does.

    26. The Wight creatures are after the missing baby – that is, Craster’s 99th son, little Sam. I’m looking forward to finding out why they need Craster’s baby boys and not any other baby boys, apparently. They clearly are willing to travel to get a hold of that baby, as shown when it followed Sam and Gilly to the hut in the woods. How far will they go?

    27. Rafael: Try incognito window. Works like charm

      Brilliant idea! I’m assuming the incognito would store no cache or cookies to keep all evidence away.

      Doesn’t Craster descend from the First Men? I would assume that was why. I imagine any babies with the blood of the First Men would do, but not many folks are so ready and willing to get rid of their babies. Craster didn’t want competition for being the paterfamilias and husband.

    29. Why was he arrested? Did he assassinate someone prominent coz we are made to believe procuring the services of a faceless man is very expensive… Man i have soo many questions about that scene… But come to think of it mybe he assumed the face of thae criminal who was supposed to go to the wall

      We don’t know why he was arrested, IIRC, and we definitely don’t know whom he assassinated, if anyone. My best guess is that he assumed the face of a random person and got arrested in pursuit of his mission. Since he just looks like a random person, no one would suspect he was a Faceless Man with a high-valued target, and a FM would certainly never reveal that.

    31. What on earth are you talking about? Pandering, as in favoring? Oh yeah her character is so favored, look all the good luck she gets….

      Oh good, Gilly now has a real baby. Should be a toddler, but at least its better than the bundle of laundry she’s carried around for several seasons

      Think thats the best interview I have ever seen D&D in; plus it helped that the questions were actually different and interesting.

    32. BTW is anyone else having problems with the site freezing up during typing Everything is smooth then suddenly it is only showing me like a letter every few seconds. Once I refresh it comes back but its frustrating because I am making typos that I don’t usually make, and a few times I had to completely abandon a post because it was just a mess….is it the new server, or something else?

      Yes! But others have suggested using an incognito or private window (like for surfing porn) to avoid the problems with the browser looking for cached pages. And it works like a charm for me in Chrome on a Mac.

    35. The videos were quite nice – I am really looking forward to the new season. I just have to find a way to skip work from 10 to 11 am every Monday for the next 10 weeks or so…or watch it half a day later and avoid the internet for half a day.

      Concerning the WotW reloading issues, on Firefox shift button + reload page completely renews the page and does not use the cache, so that works as well (but it would of course be better if I got the latest page every time I load the page and not only after one reload).

      This site typically embeds automatically for YouTube. I like it.

      I love the song he was singing (Queen!) – not loving his actually singing here, though we know from Game of Thrones: The Musical that he can do better. We do get to see Jon’s mama soon!!!
