Bran in Game of Thrones S5

Book readers have a good idea what might happen in the fifth season of Game of Thrones, but those who’ve waited to read until (a) the books are all out or (b) to give the show priority are happily in the dark. And even book readers don’t know it all, as the show has gone deep enough into the texts that things are being moved around, and even invented for the show.

Word came out last week that Kristian Nairn will be taking the year off, as the screen story of his character Hodor has caught up to what author George R.R. Martin has published. We assumed that could mean that Isaac Hempstead-Wright and his character Bran would also be MIA until season 6, but new comments from the actor suggest that’s not the case. Read More »

Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel

Over 6,000 Game of Thrones fans were in attendance at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday, held in the notorious Hall H.

Game of Thrones gag reel

The Lannisters are tough, poker-faced bastards, but the actors who play members of one of the elite families of Westeros can’t always keep a straight face on set. Luckily the cameras are rolling even when some of these folk are in their more vulnerable moments, and so we’ve got an entertaining Game of Thrones gag reel from season four. (Worry not; it’s not just the Lannister family caught in weird moments here. If you’re a Lion-hater there are still plenty of highlights here to enjoy.)

There are no big spoilers here, though I’m not sure why you’d be watching this sort of reel if you’re not caught up on the show in the first place. Check out the video below. Read More »
