A feeling of gloom pervades every frame of Bridgend, the Danish teen drama which makes its Canadian premiere at Fantasia. Even as the kids drink and dance in ecstasy (in a scene which wouldn’t be out of place in Skins, the British soap where star Hannah Murray got her break) or skinny dip in large groups, there’s an undeniable sense of melancholy in their maniacal celebrations. Given the sadness evident in otherwise ebullient scenes, the ominous shots of the countryside shrouded in darkness or mournful messages on a computer screen make life in the film’s titular Welsh town seem unbearably grim.
You can understand the despondency. Bridgend provides a fictional look at a real-life incident in which there were 79 recorded suicides in the town between 2007 and 2012, none of which had an easy explanation. »

"Game of Thrones" only recently ended Season 5 and they are just starting Season 6, so there was no footage to show at Comic-Con and no major spoilers shared at the panel. However, after the Comic-Con panel, HBO's Making Game of Thrones asked several cast members two questions: 1) What GoT scene would they have loved to have been in, and 2) What one-word tease would they give for Season 6, based off the newly delivered scripts? Read the full story for the scene answers, but we're all about Season 6 right now so we wanted whatever hints they could share from the scripts.
It's interesting to learn who hadn't even read the pages by that point. Hannah Murray (Gilly) said she hadn't received her scripts yet. "Mystery, would be a good word. We don't do hard copies anymore because of security but I think they're on their way." John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) read his scripts and gave this description: "Rich. »

Maisie Williams, who plays the fierce Arya Stark on HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones, sent two of the biggest fandoms to date into a frenzy when she posted a selfie on Instagram from her time at Comic-Con San Diego with none other than Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe. I think this photo is gonna make […]

An incredible Harry Potter and Game of Thrones crossover happened when actress Maisie Williams posted a truly perfect selfie on Sunday. She and Daniel Radcliffe smiled alongside Maisie's Game of Thrones costar Hannah Murray and Doctor Who's Jenna Coleman. Knowing just how magical the picture would be and just how excited fans would get, Maisie wrote, "I think this photo is gonna make the world implode . . . Last night was really great. #sdcc2015." The group posed together at Comic-Con, where the Game of Thrones audition reel played for the audience at the show's panel. Of course, this isn't the first crossover between the two beloved franchises. In May, it was Daenerys Targaryen and Neville Longbottom hanging out when Emilia Clarke and Matthew Lewis posed for a picture together on the set of their upcoming movie, Me Before You. »
Jon Snow might "know nothing," but Arya Stark knows a lot. So much, in fact, that she had the foresight to know she could essentially break the Internet with one selfie (despite seemingly losing her sight in Game of Thrones). Maisie Williams, the actress who plays the famous daughter, attended San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend and casually stumbled upon Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe). Westeros and Hogwarts are colliding, and it's almost too much to handle. But if Williams and Radcliffe weren't enough to spark some serious GoT-Harry Potter fan fiction, they upped the ante by also including GoT co-star Hannah Murray, who plays Gilly, and Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara »
The Chosen Ones! On Sunday, July 12, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter fans’ heads exploded when stars Maisie Williams and Daniel Radcliffe met up at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif. “I think this photo is gonna make the world implode….. Last night was really great #sdcc2015,” Game of Thrones star Williams, 18, captioned her Instagram selfie with Radcliffe, 25, Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman, and her GoT costar Hannah Murray. Williams, of course, plays the sword-wielding badass Arya Stark on the hit HBO fantasy series, while Radcliffe [...] »

Martin, HBO’s Game of Thrones concluded its 10-episode fifth season in June and will begin filming its sixth season this summer. The series, executive produced and written by David Benioff and D.B.

Comic-con: The panellists from HBO’s smash series took to the hallowed Hall H on Friday with their hands – and mouths – tied.
The production cycle dictates the impact of Comic-Con presentations and, with the start of shooting on Season 6 still several months away, it was Natalie Dormer, who plays the scheming Margaery Tyrell in Game Of Thrones, who best summed it up.
“I don’t have an effing clue,” she replied when asked what audiences could expect from her character when the fun and games resume in March 2016.
The cast have not read their lines yet and even executive producer Carolyn Strauss was restricted to circumspect replies that shed no light on what to expect.
That is not to detract from the entertaining quality of a panel populated with a good mix of significant characters, even if arguably the most pressing question of them all – namely how the show runners might crowbar the very dead Jon Snow back into »

Considering just how massive Game of Thrones has become since its inception on HBO in 2011, it’s not surprising that this year’s Comic-Con Panel, which feature a huge portion of the cast alongside veteran executive producer Carolyn Strauss and prominent director David Nutter, focused mainly on reflecting on all that went down in Season 5. Alongside Strauss and Nutter, Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, and Maisie Williams fielded a series of questions that covered quite a lot of Season 5 ground, as well as referencing the overall goals, trajectory, and impulses of their characters. Oh, and all the immense work that goes into producing a show that may be the most cinematic-looking series currently still in production. (Note: Hannibal is no longer in production.)
