Emilia Clarke Is Tired Of Defending Game Of Thrones’ Sex Scenes

HBO’s fantasy flagship, Game of Thrones, has already fired up production on its eighth and final season, but it’s fair to say that the star-studded adaptation developed a reputation for (gratuitous?) nudity and sex scenes during its early years.

That’s something Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) has addressed before, and after seven seasons, the actress still struggles to see why so many viewers insist on making a big deal out of Thrones‘ nude scenes: “People fuck for pleasure, it’s part of life.” Say it louder for the people at the back.

Indeed, that quote from Clarke came during her recent interview with Harpers Bazaar (via The Independent), where she compared Thrones‘ adult content with that of The Handmaid’s Tale – incidentally, the latter recently won an Emmy for Best Drama Series.

I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah,

Leaked Game Of Thrones Set Photos Point To Huge Winterfell Sequence And A Mysterious New Castle

Winterfell, the largest castle in the North and long-time home of the Stark family, will feature quite prominently in Game of Thrones season 8, if these leaked set photos are any indication.

First spotted by the eagle-eyed folks over at Watchers on the Wall (with a tip of the hat to Oakleaf Photography), these images were taken at some of the show’s key filming hubs in Northern Ireland, including the serene Moneyglass and Titanic Studios.

Since the early days on Game of Thrones, Moneyglass has doubled as the northerly Winterfell, and we’re now hearing that the Stark stronghold is being revamped from the ground up in anticipation of season 8. Massive white sheets have also been scattered across the Irish fields, which only fuels previous rumors that Winterfell will be one of the first castles to come under siege from the invading Night King and his undead army.

Speaking of castles,

'Game of Thrones' Podcast: Season 1 Ends in "Fire and Blood"

"Fire cannot kill a dragon."

These chilling words from Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), first uttered as she stood before her squealing brother's molten corpse, ended up being rather prophetic by the end of the first season of Game of Thrones. Seven years in the rearview mirror as of this writing, the episode — "Fire and Blood," written by showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and directed by Alan Taylor — makes good on Dany's testament to the power of the Targaryen line, allowing the widowed Khaleesi to not only survive an overnight inside a burning funeral pyre...

Game of Thrones: This Aegon Easter Egg Is Just as Sweet as It Is Heartbreaking

  • BuzzSugar
For the most part, Game of Thrones is an endurance test for how many miserable, heartbreaking, and stomach-churning events you can withstand in one sitting. There have been a few bright spots over the last seven seasons, though, and Ser Davos Seaworth's tender friendship with young Shireen Baratheon is at the top of the list. As it happens, one of their tutoring sessions happens to contain a subtle Easter egg concerning the big reveal about Jon Snow's true name in the season seven finale. As you might recall, before showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss decided to rip out our hearts with Shireen's fate, there's a scene from a few seasons back where she's trying to teach the illiterate Davos how to read and write. Reddit user Efurthy realized that Shireen's choice for the first word to teach her new student (and Jon Snow's future Bff) could not

Report: Game of Thrones' Final Season Adds Into the Badlands Actor

Report: Game of Thrones' Final Season Adds Into the Badlands Actor
When Game of Thrones fulfills Cersei’s request for an army in Season 8, it’ll be led by face familiar to Into the Badlands fans, a new report suggests.

The eagle-eyed Thrones devotees at Watchers on the Wall recently flagged a theatrical agency’s announcement that Marc Rissmann has been cast as Harry Strickland in the HBO drama’s upcoming eighth and final season. (HBO declined to comment on the casting, and the announcement has since been removed.)

In the George R.R. Martin novels on which the TV series is based, Harry Strickland is the leader of the Golden Company,

Game Of Thrones Star Liam Cunningham Rules Out Surprise Cameo From [Spoiler]

Ser Davos Seaworth (Aka the Onion Knight) is arguably one of the unsung heroes populating HBO’s Game of Thrones, and if there’s anyone who deserves a happy end in season 8, it’s Liam Cunningham’s former smuggler.

But the blood-drenched fields of Westeros are not known for their happy endings, so the chances of Marya Seaworth appearing in Thrones‘ eighth and final season are slim to none. That’s something Cunningham acknowledged during a recent interview with TV Guide, where the actor pointed to the truncated episode count as the primary reason why Mrs. Seaworth is unlikely to feature.

Said he:

I don’t think it’s going to happen. We’ve got six episodes left and we’re ramping up to World War III in Westeros. The introduction of my fabulously beautiful wife, I’d imagine, is not going to be seen.

‘Game of Thrones’ is Filming Season 8 Until Summer 2018 (Which Means We Won’t See it For A While)

‘Game of Thrones’ is Filming Season 8 Until Summer 2018 (Which Means We Won’t See it For A While)
The long wait for “Game of Thrones” Season 8 just got even longer. HBO has not set an official premiere date for the final season, but it’s now looking increasingly likely that “Thrones” won’t be back on the air until 2019. The series has never been off the air for an entire year (the Season 7 premiere was delayed two months because of production but still debuted over the summer), but it’s now extremely doubtful the show will return at any point in summer 2018.

Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, revealed to TV Guide that production on the final season is expected to last from October until the start of the summer, which is around when the show would usually begin airing on HBO.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Will Be Monumental

It’s the beginning of the end, folks.

Comprised of six episodes in total, down from the standard run of 10, Game of Thrones season 8 is now in production and looks set to deliver a fitting send-off to what’s been one of the greatest TV shows of the modern era. With the Night King on the march – perched on an undead Viserion, no less – and Cersei plotting a potentially devastating betrayal, the power players of Westeros will come together in epic fashion in 2019. And there’s also the small matter of Jon Snow’s true parentage.

So, there’s much to look forward to once the show returns then, and in a new interview with Huffington Post, star John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly on the hit fantasy series, promised big things to come. Speaking about the scale and scope of season 8, he teased that it’ll be “monumental.”

George R.R. Martin Hints At 2019 Premiere For Game Of Thrones Prequel Series

HBO is yet to formally commit to a Game of Thrones prequel series – to date, the network has solicited five separate pitches from multiple writers, with the latest arriving by way of Bryan Cogman – but George R.R. Martin has gone ahead and teased a tentative 2019/2020 release window for Thrones‘ successor nonetheless.

Per Facebook, the Song of Ice and Fire author once again stressed that it’s incredibly unlikely HBO will progress with all five prequel series; rather, the Powers That Be will cherry-pick one story pitch and flesh out its Game of Thrones prequel from there. Beyond that, little is known about HBO’s future plans – for instance, will this successor span multiple seasons? – but Martin did allude to “two or three” series reaching the pilot stage.

Said he:

You should not expect to see all five shows, though, at least not immediately.. much as I might love the idea,

‘Rick and Morty’: Dan Harmon Isn’t Ruling Out Longer Seasons or a ‘Game of Thrones’ Homage

The first three seasons of the Adult Swim favorite have all maxed out at 10 episodes, which is hardly ever enough. Just when you’re obsessed with the show all over again, you find out there’s only one episode left and you’re forced to say goodbye.

Fortunately, co-creator Dan Harmon isn’t ruling out a future where “Rick and Morty” seasons run longer than the traditional 10 episodes. Harmon and Justin Roiland originally planned to extend Season 3 to include more episodes, but their obsessive nature led to such a delay in production that they ended up going with the standard 10 so the series could return to Adult Swim after such a long break.

These Are the Final 4 Directors Who Will Ever Work on Game of Thrones

As much as we'd like to pretend that Game of Thrones will go on forever, HBO's fantasy epic is coming to an end. Details about the eighth and final season have been trickling in slowly but surely, and now we officially know who is getting the pleasure of directing the last episodes ever. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the final four people in charge of steering the last six episodes in the right direction are Miguel Sapochnik, David Nutter, and creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. While fans will likely know Weiss and Benioff's names, Sapochnik and Nutter might not be as familiar. Rest assured, though, that they're well versed in the Game of Thrones universe. Nutter has directed six episodes of the show in total, starting in season two. He's the one you can thank for one of the series's most famous episodes, "The Rains of Castamere,
