Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones Season 5?

Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones Season 5?

Tywin Lannister: A great villain of Westeros?  Or Westeros’ greatest villain? Either way many fans were (spoiler alert) sad to lose the Lannister Patriarch last season even though most of us did get a twinge of satisfaction watching him take a bolt to the gut from his son’s crossbow while taking a dump. But word comes this week that we may not have seen the last of Tywin. Game of Thrones has long avoided flashback scenes. Preferring dreams and live, present action over such storytelling devices. But Charles Dance assures us that we haven’t seen the last of him telling MTV: “I’m not completely missing out on...

Some GAME OF THRONES Audition Tapes

Some GAME OF THRONES Audition Tapes

Thought we’d throw something fun up today. It is prompted by recently discovering Rory McCann’s audition for Sandor Clegane, better known as The Hound, on Youtube. So why not offer up some more GAME OF THRONES clips all relating to auditions to go with it. You might have caught some of these before, but here they are in one place. Oh, we posted Arya and Sansa auditions already. Here is a blast from the past. Though brief here is a Jason Momoa clip. I know, there are only so many clips you can handle. To conclude here are two snippets from interviews as Emilia Clarke and Kristian Nairn recall their auditions. The Tonight Show Starring...

A Certain Nude Scene to be Filmed for Season 5

A Certain Nude Scene to be Filmed for Season 5

The cameras on the set of Game of Thrones roam far and wide to capture the magical world of Westeros. In fields, on the water, in the mountains and even inside historical churches. A church in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik is one such location where GoT season 5 has been shooting. But when certain citizens of Dubrovnik heard that a certain nude scene involving Cersei Lannister would be shot in their holy site they rallied to have the filming nixed. But fear not, nudity… I mean Game of Thrones fans!  The scene is BACK ON!  Well.. almost. A compromise has been reached and the church scene itself will be filmed on a green screen.  A...

Bran & Hodor Take Game of Thrones Season 5 Hiatus

Bran & Hodor Take Game of Thrones Season 5 Hiatus

The world of Westeros has many characters.  So many characters, in fact that HBO can’t fit them all into every season. Who’s sitting on the sidelines this year? It would appear to be Bran and his lovable ride Hodor.  Speaking with Yahoo News actor Kristian Nairn (Hodor) said this: “We have a season off and we have a year’s hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books.” Oh, really? He says it like we all knew as much but this reader/writer/fan most certainly did not! But for book readers, this almost makes sense. Bran’s story line (and thus Hodor’s) has almost reached the same...

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

If you ask people who their favorite female Stark is, most people will probably say Arya. She’s pretty cool. I mean, she runs around stabbing people and being a baby assassin. However, Sansa gets overlooked, consistently. From the beginning, she’s portrayed as the typical girly sister while Arya is the patriarchy-bucking sister. However while Arya is basically a missing child turned killer, Sansa’s character is evolving interestingly.               In the beginning, Sansa was the stereotypical female character. She thought only of her place among the court and her future with Joffrey as his betrothed...

Method to Her Madness: A Look at Cersei Lannister

Method to Her Madness: A Look at Cersei Lannister

  “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” These words were spoken by a woman who, from the moment we first met her, made it known that she not only knows how to play the game, but she plays it well. Cersei Lannister is arguably one of the most powerful women in Westros. She betrayed her husband, King Robert Baratheon, on many occasions, was mother to one of the most hated characters in Game of Thrones, and even conspired to kill her youngest brother. Her list of sins may be as extensive as Tyrion’s if not longer. Season Four saw the end of two of the most villainous characters in a world where there are no clear...
