Reminds me of a promo for a TV show I saw recently. Don't remember the show but it was a bunch of people in a bakery or a coffee shop or some such. It had a bell over the door and every time someone walked in woman from the show said, "Shame!" At first under her breath. . ..

Now I wish I remembered what show it was promoting.

Photo leaked from the set of S7 which shows some characters together. Some may consider this a 'spoiler':

For fans of Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow), he's in a new costume drama for FX, Taboo (trailer at the bottom of an interesting article on the historical background of the series): http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/t...medium=desktop

This is old (like 6 or 7 months) but it is the first time I've seen it and I found it interesting. The actors under the make-up including Leaf, The Night King and The Shame Nun (Unella, I believe).

Just HOW tall is Neil Fingleton anyway? Damn!

ETA: Googled... about 7 1/2 feet!!

ETA 2: Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) is quite stunning too.

Fingelton was a good high school BB player but he was mostly a flop in college at UNC and Holy Cross from 1998 to 2002.

It appears Neil Fingleton died today at 36 of a heart attack. Still looking for a link to confirm.

This is all I have found so far: from a Dr. Who site. No further information, just that he died of a heart attack this week.

Teaser for next season. No spoilers. Not much, really. Just reminders of what happened (and probably what's important).

GOT's S7 will be seven episodes; S8 (the last) will be just six. Ugh - I have a feeling it's going to feel 'way too rushed: http://money.cnn.com/2017/03/12/medi...xsw/index.html

This may have been covered, but any word on if they're getting direction from Martin on the upcoming seasons, considering he hasn't written the books yet? I'd hate to find out that no, Arya has not made it home or that Jon Snow really is dead.

Yes, Martin laid out the whole thing to them at the very start. He has said that the books will end up in the same place but may not take the same road there. Also, Hodor's origin came from Martin.

Lots of discussion about what throne Danys is sitting on during the trailer. Looking like Dragonstone, the home of the Targs, and previously ruled by Stannis, though I can't recall if he was ever seen on the actual throne...

The PBS series Wolf Hall, set during the reign of Henry VIII, has some stylistic similarities to GOT and features a number of alumni from the show, including the actors who play(ed) Jojen Reed, the High Sparrow, Maester Qyburn, and Iron Bank official Tycho Nestoris.

Currently airing Taboo also has a bunch: Nestoris, Talisa, High Sparrow, Salladhor Saan, Mace Tyrell, Hugh of the Vale (the guy who gets his neck perforated by the Mountain), and (apparently minor) the Spice King. It's not medieval though.

Promo pics for season 7 from HBO. Lots of speculation going around about these.

Tormund giving Brienne the googley eyes amused me greatly. Everyone is wearing heavy dark clothes, probably because winter came.

HBO is developing four potential spinoffs to GoT. There's no timeline yet.

Maybe we'll finally find out what happened to Gendry?

More on that: http://money.cnn.com/2017/05/04/medi...hbo/index.html

Wouldn't be surprised if it's based on the "Dunk and Egg" novellas: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_of_Dunk_and_Egg

Martin says that a 5th "spinoff" is in script writing/talks. Again, 5 potential spinoffs.

He also says that Dunk and Egg will not be one of the 5. Surprising, but I guess he wants to do more with that first/ Neither will Robert's Rebellion, which I guess is understandable, that wouldn't be my first choice.

If it's not Dunk and Egg and it's not Robert's Rebellion, that leaves The Princess and the Queen for adapted material based on a story, rather than world-building in the World Of book.

Unless we get the wacky adventures of Lady Stoneheart.
