‘Game of Thrones’: the show makes one more big change from the books

28 August 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warning: Full spoilers for “Game of Thrones” season 5 ahead. When “Game of Thrones” completed its fifth season, it left viewers with several questions, some of which were the same cliffhangers that book readers have been living with for years. Jon Snow’s fate has launched a thousand theories, for example. I know, I know – they insist he’s really dead. Well that can mean a lot of different things in Westeros! Guess who’s Not dead (likely because he’s just too mean to die)? Stannis “the baby burner” Baratheon. He lives on in the books, that is. In answer to a fan question on his LiveJournal, author George R.R. Martin recently confirmed that Stannis is indeed “beyond a doubt” still breathing in the world of his novels. Now to be fair, Stannis is not yet a child killer in Martin’s creation, and he may never be one. As fans of the show know, »

Game of Thrones Spoilers: Stannis Is Still Alive…At Least in the Books

27 August 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Game of Thrones‘ Season 5 finale left the futures of many major characters up in the air, from Theon and Sansa’s leap of faith to Arya’s blindness to, of course, the stabbing and apparent death of Jon Snow. Another character whose fate remains unclear is Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who appeared to be facing death at the hands of Brienne (Gwendoline Christie); however, we never saw Brienne’s sword strike the proclaimed king’s neck, as the camera cut away at the last second, leaving many to wonder if Stannis was actually alive. And while the episode’s director, David Nutter, has gone on record saying that the script’s intent was that Stannis was killed by Brienne, author George R.R. Martin is now telling fans that, at least in his novels, Stannis is still living and breathing. Martin answered the question on his LiveJournal earlier this week, when »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Will Stannis Return?

27 August 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the first time since Game of Thrones debuted on HBO in 2010, those who read the original books by George R.R. Martin and those who have only enjoyed the TV series are on the same playing field. Season 5 brought us to the end of George R.R. Martin's last novel, A Dance With Dragons, and now no one knows what to expect when Game of Thrones Season 6 debuts next year. Yesterday, George R.R. Martin responded to a fan on his LiveJournal page, who asked whether or not Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) was really dead, after his apparent murder at the hands of Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the Season 5 finale. Here's what the author had to say about Stannis' fate.

"In my books? Alive, beyond a doubt."

Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that Stannis will be back in Season 6, since the show has often deviated from the Game of Thrones books. »

Game of Thrones: Stannis Lives!

27 August 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Reports of Stannis Baratheon’s death have been greatly exaggerated… in the Game of Thrones source material, at least.

A fan recently asked author George R.R. Martin, via a comment left on Martin’s LiveJournal, whether Robert’s throne-hungry brother was still alive. The question is relevant given the end of the HBO series’ fifth season, which led viewers to believe — but did not actually show — that Stannis had been killed by a vengeful Brienne of Tarth. (One of the series’ directors later confirmed that Stephen Dillane’s character was, indeed, dead.)

“In my books?” Martin replied Wednesday. “Alive, beyond a doubt. »

Game of Thrones Boss George R. R. Martin Reveals [Spoiler] Is Still Alive in the Books

27 August 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The good news: George R. R. Martin just revealed that a major character is still alive in the Game of Thrones books.  The bad news: it is most definitely not the character we all want it to be. The author decided to shake up the Game of Thrones faithful late last night by answering a fan question on his Live Journal blog. Sadly, it was not one of the many, many Jon Snow (Kit Harington) questions. (Our long national nightmare continues on that front.) When asked if Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) is alive or dead, Martin gave a definitive answer...and it was absolutely not the one everyone was expecting. "In my books? Alive, beyond a doubt," Martin wrote. Say »

Fear the Walking Dead Season One – Episode 1 Review

24 August 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis (@OliDavis) reviews the debut episode of Fear the Walking Dead

Pilot.

Directed by Adam Davidson.

Written by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson.

In L.A., even the zombies are more attractive.

Fear the Walking Dead’s drug-addict protagonist Nick Clark is played by Frank Dillane. He’s the son of Stannis Baratheon actor Stephen Dillane from Game of Thrones. Because when Stannis isn’t burning his kids at the stake, he’s passing on his supreme acting genetics.

Dillane is excellent. Which is pretty damn thankful, because he plays the show’s only endearing character (conspiracy theory kid Tobias not withstanding). He looks as though someone put Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows onto James Franco’s face.

It’s hard not to compare Fear’s first episode to it’s older sibling, The Walking Dead. Fear’s Usp concept – that it takes place in the blank space of Rick »

Fear the Walking Dead Has a Very Important Harry Potter Actor in It

23 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Not only is Fear the Walking Dead the spinoff TV series to watch (we're already calling it by its cool nickname), there is an actor on it who you may recognize - and get goosebumps over. Frank Dillane plays Nick, the son of Kim Dickens's character, but his previous noteworthy role was in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - as Voldemort. That's right, in 2009, Dillane played 16-year-old Tom Riddle, aka He Who Must Not Be Named, in a flashback. British actor Dillane is now 24 and heading into another huge genre franchise, though this time he'll be facing down zombies rather than Boys Who Live (fun fact: he's also the real-life son of actor Stephen Dillane, aka Stannis Baratheon on Game of Thrones). Let's just go over this, slowly. »

Tom Beard obituary

28 July 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Deft, poised supporting actor on stage and in popular television series

The actor Tom Beard, who has died aged 50 from cancer, was a handsome, robust supporting player generally admired for his athleticism, onstage and off. He was also, as his brother Alex, chief executive of the Royal Opera House, expressed it, the moral backbone of any company he joined.

He shared qualities of wit, poise and deftness with Colin Firth, an actor he physically resembled, without attracting a similar limelight. The role that brought him to theatrical prominence was Laertes, opposite Stephen Dillane’s Hamlet, directed by Peter Hall, which opened the renamed Gielgud theatre (formerly the Globe) on Shaftesbury Avenue in 1994, after he had featured as Marlowe in Hall’s West End production of She Stoops to Conquer.

Game of Thrones Cast Confirms One Off-Screen Death You Didn't See in the Finale

14 July 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's all take a break from our national collective mourning of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to talk about the other major Game of Thrones character who bit the dust in the epic season five finale: Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane). That's right, after sitting through the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel this weekend and talking with the entire cast of HBO's fantasy drama, we can now confirm that even though we didn't see Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) kill Stannis onscreen during the finale, she kept her promise to get revenge on him. "I can't offer you any insight whatsoever [why his death wasn't shown onscreen] because I don't write the show and I don't direct the »

9 Things That Must Happen in 'Game of Thrones' Season 6

19 June 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before we begin, if you haven't caught up with Game of Thrones, especially Sunday night's season finale that has legions of fans in an uproar, then turn away now. There will be tons of Spoilers ahead! The Game of Thrones Season 5 episode "Mother's Mercy" not only leaves us with several tantalizing questions that we'll have to wait 10 months to be answered, it sets up a slew of tantalizing possibilities about where the show's creators can go from here. So, while we start the long and painful wait for the new season, we thought it would be best to help get your mind off the traumatizing finale by looking forward to Game of Thrones Season 6. This season marks the end of any semblance of familiarity for those who have read the George R.R. Martin books. Barring some sort of miracle where the author gets imbued with Flash-like writing abilities, Season 6 will »

Stannis’ Silent Horses, Ghost-less, & Queen’s Feet – Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale Gut Takes

18 June 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Mother’s Mercy. Just some gut reactions to the season 5 finale to Game of Thrones. I realize the internet broke with analysis from both people with early access to the show and events of the finale from day one, and I imagine there are a bunch of pieces on fan sites with great takes with book knowledge. I have close to decades of book knowledge, but for people who purely watch and experience Game of Thrones via HBO, nothing below is a spoiler in terms of book facts being brought in that reveal something that hasn’t already occurred. The truth is that for the most part the show has either skipped or passed where the books are, or at the very least are right where the books are anyway and it’s pretty obvious this was purposeful out of respect to George R. R. Martin in regards to his upcoming book. »

Why This Season of 'Game of Thrones' Will Be My Last

18 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spoilers for the show's finale follow. I really thought I had said all I had to say about "Game of Thrones," which concluded on Sunday with a finale that killed off one of the few likable characters left on the show. (Yes, Jon Snow might not Actually be dead, but Kit Harington’s been pretty emphatic about being gone, so ultimately who cares? Rip your flowing locks and disco-fabulous black-fur cape, bastard of Winterfell. You tried, and you looked good doing it.) I've been recapping the show all season (for another outlet), which has required me to think about and pay attention to it in greater detail than ever before. Often, that's been viscerally hard to do -- never more so than in this season's penultimate episode, which featured a girl (Shireen Baratheon, played by Kerry Ingram) being burned at the stake on orders from her megalomaniacal father (Stannis Baratheon, »

AMC Set to Invade Comic-Con with Walking Dead Shows, Into The Badlands

16 June 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week brought the news that Lionsgate will be hitting Comic-Con's famed Hall H with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Cannes hit Sicario, and now AMC has staked their claim at the San Diego media bonanza. The indomitable cable channel will also be in Hall H for panels devoted to The Walking Dead and it's upcoming, Kim Dickens-led spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. Not-unfounded suspicions suggest that new footage from the spin-off will premiere at the panel and, just maybe, the hugely anticipated casting of Walking Dead's most dangerous nemesis, Negan, the role which everyone from Jon Hamm to Stephen Dillane has been rumored to be circling. Oh, and probably more stuff about the Wolves. [caption id="attachment_472615" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via AMC[/caption] Along with the Walking Dead series, AMC will also devote a panel to the Daniel Wu-starring martial-arts action-drama Into The Badlands, a mini-series comprised of six hour-long episodes on AMC. »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 10 Review

16 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis (@OliDavis) reviews the tenth and final episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

Mother’s Mercy.

Directed by David Nutter.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

Jon

Let’s start with the big stuff. Jon Snow (Kit Harington), the guy we’ve all been placing our hopes and dreams on since Ned and Robb Stark’s deaths, got totally Caesar’d by his fellow brothers of the Night’s Watch (including the young recruit Ollie, because children murdering people is really in this Winter).

To readers of the books, this was the last big event that happened in the most-recently released novel. Like the Red Wedding, we knew it was coming and waited quietly for the outcry. We’re all flying blind together, now.

But, like the book, it didn’t quite hit those Red Wedding highs.

The reason for this is twofold. One because of the show, »

TV Review: Game Of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy [HBO]

15 June 2015 2:06 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

HBO’s Game of Thrones Mother’s Mercy TV Show Review. Game of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy brought several main character’s season long arcs to a close, striking a typically “Game of Thrones-ian” balance of closure for season 5 and rabid anticipation heading into  season 6.

Stannis, Stannis, Stannis (Stephen Dillane). What is there left to say about the would be king of The Seven Kingdoms? We already knew that he was out of the running for the Westerosi father of the year award, but the unfortunate string of events he endured in this episode showed him there is always a lower emotional rung to sink to. There was a bit of dark comedic timing in the way the soldiers reported increasingly dire circumstances to Stannis that was reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch.

Cunningham On 'Thrones' Finale

15 June 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Liam Cunningham and Stephen Dillane (Helen Sloan/HBO)

(Spoiler alert: This story contains plot details from the final episode of Season 5, "Mother's Mercy.")

It's likely that after what he did to his daughter, no one in the realm shed a tear for Stannis Baratheon in the "Game of Thrones" Season 5 finale.

Behind the scenes though, having to say goodbye to actor Stephen Dillane, who played the Stannis to his Davos Seaworth, was tough for actor Liam Cunningham. Liam, Stephen and Carice van Houten (Melisandre) became a close bunch of actors, as their scenes often ...

Thanks A Lot Lord Of Light. It appears that child bonfire was all for nothing. All Melisandre can do is grimace in disappointment before she promptly makes a break for it on a horse.
