At first glance, there is nothing spectacular about this Margaery Tyrell cosplay from the New York Comic-Con. Hair? Check. Dress? Check. Ample (ahem) cleavage? Check. But, then comes the cosplay twist that turns this fairly run-of-the-mill cosplay into maybe the best 'Game of Thrones' cosplay we've seen.
Game of Thrones
'Game of Thrones' year-long wait in between seasons felt even more heart-rending this past season, following the portrayal of the infamous "Red Wedding" event that forever altered the violence level and storytelling of the series. And while everything we've seen of season 4 thus far suggests that the story will cull from multiple sections of George R.R. Martin's ongoing narrative, the author himself assures fans another famous wedding will get its due next season.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 looks to be continuing the trends of previous season in adapting more and more of creator George R.R. Martin's work out of place. Despite covering a period roughly midway through Martin's third book 'A Storm of Swords,' the HBO fantasy drama has added UK actor Joel Fry in a key role from Martin's fifth book as Hizdahr zo Loraq.
A few days ago gave us a bevy of sneak peeks at 'How I Met Your Mother's ninth and final season premiere "The Locket / Coming Back," though it seems they've saved the best for last in advance of Monday's debut. The latest look at season 9 sees Barney revealing his unsurprising 'Game of Thrones' favorite, as he and Robin plot a dastardly murder that could shake the entire series to its core. Or not.
A few weeks ago we caught a brief look back at 'Game of Thrones' season 3 that went behind the scenes to show us some incredible effects, most notably the massive ice wall that Jon Snow and his Wildling cohorts scaled in "The Climb." Now, yet another, more expansive FX reel for 'Game of Thrones' season 3 has emerged, showing the incredible layers of Dany's dragons, and the massive armies seen over the course of the season!
The moment 'Game of Thrones' season 3 cast Coldplay drummer Will Champion in a cameo role, we had some idea where the musician would pop up in the season. Now, in what's become something of a unique tradition for the series, 'Game of Thrones' season 4 has tapped Icelandic band Sigur Rós for yet another top-secret cameo, though admittedly one with far-less speculation around it.
Whereas 'Game of Thrones' saw fit to release its mammoth cast and character list at Comic-Con last year, season 4 has taken a much more measured approach to revealing its new additions. Case in point, 'Sherlock' star and producer Mark Gatiss was announced for an upcoming role back in mid-July, but only now have details of the actor's role in season 4 come to light. So which of George R.R. Martin's characters will Gatiss bring to light?
Last week we were shocked to learn that 'Game of Thrones' season 4 had tapped 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman' to replace Ed Skrein in the prominent role of Daario Naharis, though it seems the George R.R. Martin-adapted HBO drama has made a mountain of another replacement. Icelandic actor Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, a role that had itself already once been recast, so why all the change?
Just the other day 'Game of Thrones' announced that 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman had joined the fourth season in an unidentified role, one we thought little of considering how secretive casting has been up to now. However, surprising new reports reveal that HBO had reason to keep the character under wraps, as Huisman will replace another actor in a major breaking role from season 3, with plenty more scenes to come!
You know, for an HBO series whose source material has been available in book stores for over a decade, 'Game of Thrones' has become increasingly uptight with its casting. The latest to join season 4 of the HBO fantasy-drama in yet another mystery role is none other than 'Nashville' and 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman, so why all the secrecy?
