Web Gems is intended to show you an entertaining, yet different, side to your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else; but they also show us just how awesome they really are.
My plan: To bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything is HBO related. None of the material is my own.
Any thoughts about this post can be shared in the comments below. Any ideas, pics, tweets, or videos you want added can be sent to Charlie@HBOWatch.com.
Here’s another Game of Thrones Edition of Web Gems. Don’t worry True Blood fans, yours is coming soon!!
THIS ONE IS FOR THE LADIES!
How many of you ladies love Robb Stark? I know you’re out there and this one is especially for you! I love how they fit in Greatjon Umber yelling ” the King in the North” at (0:14).
JOFFREY GETS SLAPPED. MULTIPLE TIMES!!
Dedicated to all of you that hate Joffrey; I mean REALLY hate him. This should be extremely satisfying.
Or maybe you want to print this out and hang it on your wall:
THE HOUND GETS CAUGHT WITHOUT HIS KILT
Rory McCann, a.k.a. The Hound, in an advert for Scott’s Porridge. The Dog doesn’t like fire, but it looks like he’s cool with ice.
I THOUGHT TYWIN WAS SUCH A BADASS…UNTIL I SAW THIS.
Thanks to the guys over at WinterIsComing.net for posting this on Twitter a while back. Does it get any better than Charles Dance and Ali G?
“C’MON YOU KNUCKLEHEAD I KNOW YOU WANT IT!”
Even before graduating from drama school in 2008, Kit Harington won the lead role of Albert in the English National Theatre production of “War Horse”. Here is a short clip of Kit’s performance. How awesome are those puppeteers?
PICS, POSTS, TWEETS, AND GIFS
If you haven’t seen the “Blackwater” episode yet, you are truly missing out. Props to the VFX team for this amazing explosion.
You Know Nothing Jon Snow
The Game of Thrones/Harry Potter Connection
Sophie and Maisie know how to have a good time!
Do you think these two will ever have another scene together? I sure hope so, but right now it’s not looking so good.
These Stark kids are too much! It’s cool to see that they are such good friends outside of the show. Hopefully they will reunite on screen one day.
