George R. R. Martin gives the Iron Finger to naysayers

George R. R. Martin gives the Iron Finger to naysayers

  In a recent interview with the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, the acclaimed author of A Song of Ice and Fire, upon which Game of Thrones is based, was asked how he would respond to fans’ worries about his health giving out before he has the opportunity to finish the remaining books. Martin responded thusly: “I find that question pretty offensive, frankly, when people start speculating about my death and my health. So fuck you to those people.” Although his response was accompanied by a signature chuckle and raised middle finger, it is apparent that he feels insulted by such inappropriate questions, and rightly...

Šibenik, Croatia confirmed as new Game of Thrones filming location

We can now confirm that the Croatian town of Šibenik will be used as a new shooting location for scenes in the upcoming fifth season of Game of Thrones. Astute book readers can probably guess what this location will be used for, from the images alone. Šibenik town officials and the Deputy Mayor, Danijel Mileta, announced this week that the show will be shooting in their town in September. However, the announcement was met with some unfortunate local controversy. Here’s a rundown of it from WiC’s report: The announcement … has been met with some local controversy. According to Šibenik.in, HBO has had trouble securing...

HBO “not concerned” about Game of Thrones outpacing books

HBO “not concerned” about Game of Thrones outpacing books

We now have much more concrete information on this matter. Thanks to EW, we now know that HBO executives are “not concerned” about the series overtaking the remaining books. Here’s an extract: HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler and programming president Michael Lombardo were asked by critics Thursday if there was anything “short of nuclear war” that would prevent Thrones from completing its entire story as planned....

Oberyn Martell’s daughter cast in Game of Thrones?

Oberyn Martell’s daughter cast in Game of Thrones?

According to the New Zealand Herald, Kiwi Academy-Award nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes is rumored to be cast as one of the Sand Snakes, the late Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters of whom he spoke so fondly last season. The newspaper states that Ms. Castle-Hughes has been sharing the news of her casting with her friends. In addition to this, her Twitter activity would seem to point towards something Thrones related, in that she has traveled to London and Belfast recently, lauded the show, and followed numerous cast members. At this time, it is unclear which daughter she may be playing, but we will be sure to update you as...

From Rome to King’s Landing

From Rome to King’s Landing

Missing Game of Thrones yet? Our watch has just begun, so we thought it’d be interesting to explore some of the influences on HBO’s most watched show. Roman and medieval epics have lent a lot of their aesthetic and themes to Game of Thrones. In fact, one can say that Game of Thrones is a deconstruction of the epic and the fantasy genres. Some of its earliest literary ancestors include everything from the Greek epics to the stories of King Arthur. Martin himself has emphasized the influence of historical conflicts like the Wars of the Roses, and the history of the Capetians as chronicled by Maurice Druon in The Accursed...

Hail, Ciarán Hinds, the King-Beyond-the-Wall

Hail, Ciarán Hinds, the King-Beyond-the-Wall

Some might argue that the only task possibly more difficult than uniting the Roman Empire under one supreme ruler is joining 90 different clans of Wildlings. Ciarán Hinds is no stranger to great conquests on HBO.  Playing Julius Caesar in the critically-acclaimed Rome probably hasn’t hurt his brooding portrayal of the similar Mance Rayder. Caesar in Rome, and Mance in GOT are middle-aged warriors who’ve been put through the wringer for their reputations in battle. During times of crisis the people demand a leader. When the Roman Republic was under attack it elected one man to make critical decisions. Julius Caesar was a...

Spain to serve as Dorne in Game of Thrones Season 5

Spain to serve as Dorne in Game of Thrones Season 5

The U.S. ambassador to Spain and former Vice President of HBO, James Costos, has confirmed that scenes for Game of Thrones Season 5 will be shot in Spain. This comes fast on the heels of confirmed rumors about scouting in the area. To be exact, The Alcázar of Seville (pictured above) could serve as the Water Gardens of Dorne, where the late Prince Oberyn Martell’s older brother, Prince Doran, spends his time. It is also likely that the country will host the filming of scenes in Sunspear, the seat of House Martell. The Alcázar is a Moorish-built castle whose construction dates back to the 1300s, so it would seem to be a...
