The cast and crew of HBO’s mega-hit “Game of Thrones” will take a day off filming the show’s final season to celebrate the nuptials of two of the series’ stars, according to actor Kit Harrington. The actor, best known as Jon Snow, said Saturday during an appearance on the UK’s “The Jonathan Ross Show” that he asked the show’s producer to pause production for his wedding to actress Rose Leslie, according to The Telegraph.
“I rang (the producer) up, and I said, ‘I’m getting married, and it’s your fault actually,’” he said. “I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level.”You read that right. Kit Harington is insisting on shutting down production of the final season for a weekend so that everyone can get together and celebrate his wedding. Note he doesn’t say *which* producer he rang up, but we assume it was either David Benioff and Dan Weiss. Harington and Leslie, both 30, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO series, where they played on-screen lovers. Leslie, who played Ygritte, left the cast of “Game of Thrones” in 2014 and currently stars in the political drama “The Good Fight.”
Harington continues to star in “Game of Thrones.” “I was like, ‘You need to factor in a “Game of Thrones” wedding by the way,’” Harington said he told the show’s producer. “(The cast) have all got to be there, so the whole thing has got to shut down.” Rumors swirled for years that Harington and Leslie were dating, although it wasn’t until last year that the couple confirmed their relationship. They announced their engagement last month. Harington might be planning his wedding, but during filming, he’s been spotted hanging out with his new on-screen love, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen. The two of them were spotted wandering around Belfast this week during breaks between scene work, along with John Bradley. (Note Emilia’s brand new platinum hairdo!)
GOT: It’s official: HBO confirms that it is developing five series based on ‘Game of Thrones
We knew HBO was developing several “Spinoffs” to Game of Thrones, but we were not clear how many.
On the one hand, the network announced that four screenwriters were working on five pilot episodes and, on the contrary, George R.R. Martin published in his Live Journal that there was a fifth writer. Finally, HBO has confirmed who is the new entrant to develop a new plot of the universe of Song of Ice and Fire.
It is the scriptwriter and producer of Game of Thrones, Bryan Cogman. He is one of the greatest experts in the universe created by Martin.
This was defined a few months ago by the writer himself in his Not A Blog:
“We Have Added A Fifth Writer To The Original Four. No, I Will Not Reveal His Name Here. HBO Has Announced The Top Four And Will Indeed Announce The Fifth When The Deal Closes. It’s A Fantastic Signing, A Great Guy, And An Excellent Writer, And Aside From Me And Maybe Elio And Linda [Creators Of The Westeros.org Website], I Do Not Know Of Anyone Who Knows And Loves Westeros As Much As He Does. “
It is still unknown what these new series based on Song of Ice and Fire will be about, but we are sure that the level will be very high.
We remind you that HBO will only give the green light to the production of one of the five pilot episodes. Besides, both Martin and HBO confirmed that they will not show the current characters in any of the new stories and that Game of Thrones fans should rule out Robert’s Rebellion.
While details of the now five developing show ideas are still under wraps, HBO has dropped some small clues.
Bryan [Cogman’s] series will be an adaptation, and one that will thrill most fans of the books, I think, set during a fascinating period of Westerosi history,” Martin wrote. “And I’ll be working with him every step of the way; we’re going to be co-creating the show.”
And you, what is it about this universe you would like to see?
Kit Harington makes a very cruel joke to Rose Leslie
It could be thought that so many hours of filming between White Walkers and other dark creatures they curl to anyone, but it is not the same rubbing with one, knowing that its appearance is due to many hours of makeup, that to encounter with something similar outside of the recording sets . That happened to Rose Leslie (‘The Good Fight’) who suffered a terrible joke from her fiancé, Kit Harington (Jon Snow), and there are jokes and jokes, and then there’s this one. You have to have plenty of time to imagine it, but also another good dose of stomach to digest it. Harington went to ‘The Jonathan Ross show’ last Saturday, where he recounted his family’s passion for spending April Fool’s Day on April 1 (equivalent to our April Fool’s Day, every December 28th). So far all normal. The funny thing is that, this year, the ‘victim’ has been his future wife. It almost cost him the ‘yes, I want’. And a little joke. He, too, was hiding it by taping it. You can see it from the 1:25 minute “: https://youtu.be/wmca2wWi1CM
And … what was inside the fridge? As a ‘little gift’ for which Harington surely had the help, sure, of the make-up team of ‘Game of Thrones’. What a fright! According to Harington, the family of his future wife is not given much to play jokes, who after seeing him, Leslie began to cry and, according to the actor, “he told me that if I did something like that again it would be the end, and I think that includes marriage. ”
What was found in the refrigerator to get such a scare? Well nothing less than this: And you … what would you have done?
