The last thread got paywalled. Any new gossip, or blind items which might be about cast members? I haven't come across much recently, other than the things about the Richard Madden/Froy Gutierrez relationship which other members have documented in their threads, and the news about Sophie Turner having a baby with Joe Jonas. Alfie Allen seems to have broken up with another girlfriend (the artist he was dating most of last year) but haven't heard any details on what happened. Any signs of cast members quarantining with each other, or meeting up despite lockdown?

Enty ran a blind item about Emilia moving on from her married co-star (Kit) to a married investment banker. Have no idea whom the latter might be.
And, while Richard was in quarantine in LA with his latest twink (I think he's now in Scotland from what I read with twink in tow), he was staying in Emilia's LA house. Blind Gossip ran an blind item on that but it wasn't really a blind item because it had been written about.

I read recently that Emilia starred in a movie that was released on demand, which basically was relegating it to oblivion. And the director of that film got really pissed off that the film had been dumped like that.
Clearly, the studio had no faith in it.
I think Emilia is supposed to go back to the West End to resume that ill-fated production of "The Seagull"--if the West End ever comes back. Indira Varma, who played Ellaria, had a role in that production and got sick with COVID back in March. Broadway probably won't get back on track until summer 2021, according to theater insiders.
Gwendoline Christie did a cameo in a podcast produced by Demi Moore in which women share their secret sexual fantasies. This was made during the lockdown. Gwendoline played a character whose sexual fantasy consists of having an erotic night with singer/songwriter Matt Berninger at the Chateau Mormont.
Lena Headey directed a video starring Maisie Williams. That was before the pandemic but I think it got released. I haven't seen it yet. Lena's instagram has been filled with a lot of anti-Trump posts.

I fell in Love with NCW on Game of Thrones. I thought he was simply brilliant as Jaime Lannister. But every single other thing I have seen of his has been garbage. I want him to change management. He needs a new agent. He's got the looks, the talent, but the work is for shit. In that way he reminds me of Luke Evans in a way. The looks, the talent, and not much good work. I hope he gets himself together. I used to love Sean Bean. Years ago, when he was in some British Series, "Sharpe" Can't recall. The thing is, he was gorgeous, and then he sort of fell apart. He was good in LOTR, but he died in almost every movie. What ever. WTF is Kit Harington? I think he's a adorable pocket gay....except he's not Gay, but he could be.

Honestly, I think that after lining up a fat paycheck/franchise with The Eternals at MCU and then completing filming, he is really enjoying his break during the pandemic. He barely heads into London, and when he does, we get pics of him with a quarantine buzz cut or scratching his balls (both times walking the puppy). After the year he went through with both a punishing GoT shooting schedule, and his hijinks with the booze and Russian hooker photos, I think he's been happy to be off the radar.
The film industry is slowly coming back in some countries, but I don't think he's in a big rush to line up projects. He has admitted that he'd like create something of his own eventually, and he has a production company with his best friend, so he could be busy working on a screenplay, who knows. His mother is a playwright and he's mentioned wanting to write as well.
Also, R24 and R23, let me recommend a Danish film called Headhunters. It's adapted from a Jo Nesbø novel and it is really good - violent, but good. NCJ isn't the lead, but plays the assassin in a menacing role. I saw it years ago and it was memorable.

NCW also dumped his longtime agent or manager and was in a lawsuit with her. Not sure how that worked out but for some reason bad splits with agents/managers never seem to work out well for actors. Especially when they dump the ones who helped them get their big break.

I'm not sure about Gwendoline's background. Her mother was a housewife and her father, who I believe is deceased based on Gwen's comments in interviews, worked in sales and marketing. She's from West Sussex. I'm guessing she's from a middle class background. She went to Drama Centre in London, not Oxford or Cambridge or any of those type of schools. So she's definitely not upper class. She is pretentious, I agree. I'm guessing the fact her boyfriend is a fashion designer and she hangs out with these fashionistas who make pretentiousness a high art, has rubbed off on her.
I have no idea if there have been sightings with her and Nikolaj. It seems nearly everyone has fallen off the radar due to the pandemic. I do know why? I follow nearly the entire GoT cast on instagram and the only ones who follow Gwen's private instagram (not public instagram--everyone follows her on that) are Nikolaj (of course), Alfie Allen and Pedro. Lena, Maisie and Sophie are not on it. I bet a million of her and her bf's fashionista friends are on it.

Sean Bean was handsome back in his Sharpe days. Alcohol and multiple divorces have ravaged the fuck out of him. He still does some decent work with Jimmy McGovern though.
Gwendoline’s plummy accent is a result of her drama training. She didn’t go to private school so she’s lower middle class at best. Her Brighton days are colourful to say the least, and she used to date Patrick Wolf (who I’ve loved for years), who’s also bi. When she got the part in GoT that was when the obsession with keeping her private life a secret started. (Her team ended up scrubbing her Twitter account of evidence that she dated women when fans found ‘incriminating’ tweets). In light of that, the timing of her relationship with her boyfriend seemed a bit convenient. She does seem to be incredibly generous with her fans though. Her Star Wars role was fucking odd; what was the point of it?
For a talented and very good-looking actor, Nikolaj has kind of fucked over his career. Reading between the lines, it seems like the issue was both bad luck and not being prepared to move to the US at the right time. I still think he could do well in one of the joint productions that HBO and Sky have been doing. Now that he’s got his own production company, he can generate roles for himself as well. He’ll never be as big as he could have been though. In terms of his marriage, I saw some recent pap pics and the rumours about it being a mess seem to be well-founded. His wife seems perpetually miserable and he looks like he’s there entirely for his kids.

"Her team ended up scrubbing her Twitter account of evidence that she dated women when fans found ‘incriminating’ tweets." This doesn't surprise me but I find it incredibly offensive and homophobic that they did that. I read (I don't know how true it is) awhile back in one of the DL threads that Gwendoline changed her private instagram account earlier this year and dropped a lot of friends from it following the publication of many photos of her during her wild and crazy (and obviously drug-taking/boozing) days as a party girl on a fan's blog. I wondered how the fan was able to get all those photos. There are tons of them--a few Gwen looks so wasted. I guess her handlers want her to be pure and pristine in order to get mainstream roles. Okay...
I did read in another thread that someone who went attended New York Fashion Week saw Gwen and her bf walk in a room and what he found strange about it was neither of them had any interaction with each other while they were in the room. And, when they did, they were both so business-like with one another. He found that so strange given they're supposedly a couple. He did remark that Gwen really worked the room.

R42 The fact is, if you’re not straight, you’ll almost certainly lose jobs in China and the Middle East. That applies just as much to Gwendoline’s modelling jobs as it does to her acting career. I suspect her team didn’t want her to be pigeon-holed after taking on 2 androgynous roles and limiting the work she can get. I also have my suspicions that she’s one of the GoT actresses that have yachted. She doesn’t work enough to rely on her proper jobs, and a few days in Cannes, Miami or in the Middle East can lead to big pay days. (I can’t say I blame the actresses who do it either.) Those are going to be few and far between with GoT fading into insignificance and her getting older. I do rate her acting though. She’s liked by other actors and directors too, which leads to work.
R45 With the amount of time he spends away from his wife, there’s zero chance that NCW hasn’t got his dick wet elsewhere. I don’t think it’s just a looks thing either. Interviews with his wife read like she has all the personality of a dead flea. That’s why I can readily believe the rumours about him and Gwendoline, who he describes as ‘a lot of fun’, hooking up.

My late father once said when it comes to men cheating, it doesn't matter what the woman looks like, as long as she's not the wife. That said, I think Gwen Christie can be very striking rendered more so by that imposing statuesque build. She really can look quite stunning at times. And I bet she's a freak in the sack.

About the yachting, Enty ran a blind item a while back (which I think got revealed) in which he stated that LOVE Magazine was nothing but a front for yachting. The editor of LOVE Magazine is the ex girlfriend of Giles Deacon, Gwen's bf. This editor is also tight with Gwen as well and Gwen has appeared in LOVE Magazine a few times. In another DL thread, someone who knows a fashion insider said that Gwen has yachted and that when Gwen was doing "Star Wars," (not sure if it was filming or promo tour), but she wanted to work in seeing a "clients" in the UAE!
People in that same thread were shocked not that Gwen yachted but that rich Arabs used to subservient women would pay a lot of money for someone like Gwen. Until someone pointed out that it made perfect sense that they would pay a lot of money for Gwen, because she's the polar opposite of what they're used to.
BTW, speaking of Gwen and her bf, I recently read an article, which I don't know how creditable it is, which claimed that Gwen's net worth is $3 million while Deacon's net worth is $1 million. I did a double take when I saw Deacon's alleged net worth! Is that all??? Isn't he supposed to be a hotshot designer? Then I remembered the articles I read about him a few years ago in which he was on the brink of bankruptcy and had stopped paying his vendors, causing them not only to go into bankruptcy but to sue him! What happened to their cases I wonder?

Remember Geena Davis in her rime? Gwen has the same affliction. Her height is such a dominant feature, it has to be part of the character's persona. I thin she's talented. But whether casting directors can se past her height is another thing entirely.

Maybe she was a problem during earlier seasons. Maybe there was drama, for all I know or don't know. But her attitude towards the end of the show was on point. Now if she thought it was a trashfire because of some Khallisi is Queen uber pro female narrative in her head, I might change my mind (I think its a perfectly fine story to tell of her downfall, it was just super rushed and incoherent in the show), but if it was about a production falling apart behind the scenes, I can only sympathize.

As for NCW, didn’t he say in some interview that he was deeply traumatised by his parents’ divorce (IIRC, the reason was his dad’s alcoholism, not cheating). I think he also said that his parents tried getting back together before splitting up for good, and that made things even worse. Maybe that childhood trauma made him decide that whatever happened in his marriage, divorce was not an option.
And didn’t his wife admit in an interview earlier this year that she’s bisexual and before her marriage was in a LTR with a woman? Who knows what kind of arrangement they have, but I don’t see them splitting up at this point. Unless some time down the road he decides he wants more kids and marries someone much younger.
And all that aside, if it’s true that his wife didn’t support his career ambitions (was against him moving to LA, didn’t want to hang out with his co-stars, etc), it’s really a red flag in a relationship.

He has said she make a full recovery.
[quote]I love his dynamic with Emilia. The Jorah/Dany relationship really touched me. I'm not surprised the actors bonded.
I am still curious what she whispered in Jorah's ear.
From Entertainment Weekly.
Ser Jorah actor Iain Glen laid on the pyre, motionless, a slab of thick glass covertly placed under him so that flames could turn on below him without harming the actor. Clarke walked up and tearfully whispered in his ear. Neither actor wore microphones and the rest of the cast and crew were out of earshot.
Afterward, I spoke to the Ser Jorah actor about the moment. Whatever was said by Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) was not in the script. In the stage directions, there’s a line that goes something like this: “Daenerys whispers something to him that he’ll never hear and we’ll never know…” So it was left up to Clarke to write her own lines for this very special and intimate moment.
Given that the entire point of the scene is that the audience is not supposed to know, Glen wasn’t about to blurt out to EW whatever Daenerys said. So we tried to simply get a sense of what kind of statement she made: Did Clarke say something sincere? Was it in character? Was it funny?

Emilia has celebrities reading poetry on her charity. She has Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Idris Elba and Andrew Scott reading poetry but the only GoT castmember is Nathalie Emmanuel. I wonder if she has asked short-arse Kit to do it. Or even Rose Leslie as they were friends.

A few years ago, I remember reading in a DL thread on Kit Harington, a GoT insider who worked in the show's costume department in Belfast for the first four seasons, discuss his/her experiences. (I'm going to refer to the insider as a "they") Anyway, there was nothing really that revelatory about it except the GoT insider said they quit after four seasons because the schedule was very demanding and this person wanted a life. According to the insider, Richard Madden was flirty; Kit was often hung over (surprise surprise) and he was sleeping with someone who worked in catering; Lena is gorgeous (they said she was one of the most physically stunning persons they've ever seen), Nikolaj kind of kept to himself only speaking to a few people (i.e. Lena, Gwen, Maisie/Sophie, Peter, etc) but he was a nerd who read the books and would talk about how Dany was really a tyrant; and Gwen and Conleth were great and funny. They said of the actors they worked with, Maisie and Sophie were their favorites but for some they were annoying because they giggled a lot. (Well what do you expect? They grew up on that show).
That's all I remember from that thread unless anyone remembers anything else.

R84, I am not sure if they dated. There was a blind item (which was never revealed) about a secret couple on the show a few years ago and they were one of the suggestions in the comments for it, but I haven't heard any more details than that, so it could have just been a guess with nothing to back it up.

New NCW interview:
Nikolaj and Nukaaka, who's a former Miss Greenland, have been married for 23 years. Asked what the secret to a long marriage is, Nikolaj says, "We like each other. I think that's a good start."
"I just got really lucky when I met her," he adds. "I don't know if there is a secret. I don't have a potion that I can pass on."

""I really miss going to work and seeing the gang and the crew." He does? He couldn't wait for the show to be over because he wanted to move on and do various projects. He said this continuously and now he misses going to work and seeing everyone. Oh yes, that's right. COVID suspended filming for a lot of projects and there's no theater right now.
I remember during one interview the journalist asked Nikolaj if he was going to miss the show and the people. He was arrogantly dismissive about it and even said when the journalist pressed him further that the people who might be feeling a void after the show is over probably don't have a very fulfilling family/personal life like him. Really? He might have been misquoted but he came across like such an egocentric jerk.
By the way, I saw "The Silencing." It was terrible. But then I learned when I see one of Nikolaj's movies, that I should brace myself for the likely possibility that it will suck and it usually does.

He's not sentimental at all. When asked about keeping something from the show, he has sometimes joked about wanting the golden hand, but other times he said he doesn't understand wanting something from a project you've finished. For him once you're done, you're done.

R94 “We like each other” isn’t really a ringing endorsement of a marriage, is it? He has been effusive about his wife in the past, but that tapered off a few years ago. The man just sounds bored, which is one of the biggest reasons straight guys fuck around. I can’t say I blame him. His wife seems painfully sheltered and provincial to the point that they operate on completely different levels now. I guess that’s why he’s started to admit missing his ‘friends’. He’s probably not been to many ‘anything goes’ parties since he’s been locked down in Denmark.

He sounds dismissive in general in that interview. When asked about relating to the plot of The Silencing (his character’s daughter being kidnapped), he says “I don’t go around thinking about losing my daughters all the time.” Maybe that’s just cultural differences.

R100 The showrunners/producers had a rep for hiring out private rooms in clubs when they were filming on location so that they and the main cast members who were there could drink, shovel coke up their noses and presumably dick around with each other if they wanted to without getting papped. I believe similar stuff used to go on around award seasons too. There was a blind item where an actor was regretting having his wife in town for the Emmys last year, because it meant that he couldn’t fuck around with his co-stars at parties. One of the popular guesses was Nikolaj. Either way, I’ve always got a “still waters run deep” vibe from this dude. I don’t think he’s half as vanilla as he seems to be. The man just married a milquetoast woman, who seemed to out herself as bi to make herself more interesting. It didn’t work.

I love that BI: EMMY AWARDS: At a pre Emmy Awards party, this foreign born A- list nominated/winning actor made it plain for the world to see that he wished his actress wife had stayed home so he could bask in the spotlight and hit on women."
Oh, how cruel Nikolaj's wife was--not to stay home so he could get the kudos and some trim!
He was a drunken/stoned mess at the Emmys, ignoring his wife at the actual ceremony so he could moon over and offer a drinking flask to Gwen who was seated behind him.
When that BI was posted, the rumor was that the source was Amanda Peet, Benioff's wife, who (if you believe it) has fed Enty quite a few GoT cast member blind items. Why she would do this is beyond me (unless she just doesn't like certain cast members).
Incidentally, Enty has a podcast open to subscribers and sometimes he will reveal blind items exclusive to subscribers that he won't do on the regular site. He did reveal on one of his podcasts that Gwen was the answer to a blind item about a GoT actress staging a photo op for her and her partner after being caught in an indiscretion with a married co-star.
Speaking of GoT blind items, does anyone remember that Lena H/Charles Dance blind item in which it alleged that not only were the two engaged in a hot and heavy affair but he was likely the father of her just born child? That didn't post on Enty or Blind Gossip. It was another site but I loved it because it was too funny (as well as untrue).

Ask his ex manager. I think it’s abundantly clear that his wife is trying to re-style herself as the Mother Theresa of Greenland now that their kids have all but flown the coop. That entire family has the same Danish manager, who was pushing the happy couple on Nikolaj’s birthday after some fairly disastrous candid photos surfaced from when they were on holiday. Their image is being heavily managed right now, which makes me wonder what’s going on. Either he’s about to get a decent payday on another high profile show/movie, or something is up.

Well, I wouldn't mind if NCW got a new gig. Something good. Like Jaime Lannister. That really was the role of a lifetime. He was great. I go back and watch all his scenes now and then. He was quite wonderful. Better IMO than hammy Peter Dinklage who chewed up every scene he was in...or tried to. At a certain point I was on the side of Jorah Mormont and everyone else who told Tyrion to shut The fuck up! NCW was nuanced. Just go re-watch his final scene with Olenna Tyrell. He was brilliant. His scenes with Lena Heady especially the one where he leaves her. Lena was great in that one too. She was her best when she was poisoning the woman who poisoned Myrcella. And I loved her when she was in that final confrontation with Tyrion, and he shouted at her to kill him, and she did that thing with her mouth. She is quite wonderful too.

Emilia is coming out with a new grievance about on-set treatment. As one of the leads, and especially the lead in her little part of the world of Dany, Jorah, Missandei and Grey Worm, I would think she would speak up for equitable treatment.
According to The Daily Mail, Emilia, 33, said male stars were offered far more comfortable options than the females. In the heat, she says, the men's costumes were manipulated to cool them; in cold environments, they were allowed to add furs to their costumes.
"The guys in the Night's Watch, Jon Snow, are wearing a woolly mammoth all the time," she said. "When we were shooting things in a hot country when they had all of those things on, they had this pump that had its own little generator attached into the costumes. They used it to pump cold water into these pipes and cool them all down so underneath they had this weird kind of cooling system."
The women on the set didn't have those same luxuries.
"Girls weren't allowed that. All I could get was the back of my wig to be lifted up," she said during the Edinburgh TV Festival. "It's too hard, I've got a wig on, they don't make cold packs you know, you put ice packs on yourself."
|by Anonymous||reply 123||08/28/2020|
She probably wasn't offered the cooling option because her winter outfits had tighter fit. The men were wearing big shapeless sacks of fur, she was wearing neat little coats with fitted waists, and a cold pack underneath would have made her look 10 pounds heavier.
Her little coats were just lovely, I had no idea she was wearing them in hot weather! The show really did make it look like it was winter everywhere.

I still like to rewatch it because some of the episodes are still pretty spectacular. Now, depending on my mood. I start with Season 6. I watch it until in episode 4 of Season 8 Euron Greyjoy attacks Dany as she arrives home to Dragonstone, and they capture Missandei. I refuse to watch them kill Missandei. It is too upsetting. So I skip to the battle scenes in episode 5 when Dany takes out those giant arrows and burns the fleet and defeats Cersei. I watch it until Jon kills her and the dragon flies away with her dead body. That's it. The end.Because IMO that's how it should have ended. Jon becoming king. Reluctantly, but king none the less.

Nope, the strong episodes are still great and provide enjoyable viewing. Thrones was always uneven. So many plotlines, there were always characters I didn't give a shit about (Looking at you, Theon.)
I am in another rewatch and have just started S5. Instead of FF through the scenes that I didn't like, I watched in its entirety this time and Dany is really fucking annoying in S4. I don't know how anyone could have missed the signs. I mean, Barristan Fucking Selmy tells her to take a chill pill and that, sometimes, we should answer injustice with MERCY. Girl ain't hearing it.
It also becomes increasingly clearer how Stannis foreshadowed Dany's arc. Dude was convinced in his destiny as the one true savior, too, blah blah blah, and had a propensity for burning people alive. Look how well that turned out for him. Even the piling on of things turning to shit right after he allowed his daughter to be burned, mimics Dany's string of upsets.

EW has run an excerpt from James Hibberd's upcoming tell-all book about "Game of Thrones." Judging from the excerpt, the story is being told in oral monologues from the cast and crew. In this EW excerpt, the cast and GRRM are talking about the failed pilot. Mark Addy, who played Robert, said one huge mistake is how when Robert came to Winterfell in the failed pilot, the actors were not told to bow. It simply didn't occur to Benioff and Weiss that they should. Can you believe it? Lena said she looked like Dolly Parton, all hair and massive furs. She loved it but it was wrong for Cersei to look like that. I swear this excerpt makes me want to get the book, which I vowed I wouldn't because Hibberd is such a shameless shill for HBO and Benioff & Weiss. Also included in this excerpt is GRRM talking about how Benioff and Weiss wanted to eliminate Rickon early on but GRRM said he had big plans for him.

An anecdote about Dame Diana Rigg by one of the Sandsnakes.
In an anecdote from James Hibberd's book, Jessica Henwick speaks about a scene from the HBO show where Olenna is discussing strategy with Ellaria Sand, before snapping, "Oh do shut up… Let the grown women speak" at Obara, Tyene and Nymeria.
Henwick remembered: "She walked onto the set, and she went, 'I’m ready now!' A cameraman came over and went, 'Well, okay, but we haven’t finished setting up.'
"She interrupted him and said, 'Roll the cameras!' And she just started doing her lines. "She did two takes, and then the guy came over and was like, 'Great, now we’re going to do a close-up.' And she just stood up and she went, 'I’m done!'"
Henwick continued: "Now, she can’t walk fast. She has to be helped. So basically we just sat there and watched as Diana Rigg effectively did her own version of storming off the set, but it was at 0.1 miles per hour. She cracked me up. I loved her."

I stumbled onto NCW’s Insta today and saw that he’d posted stories about his burnt wood outdoor gym looking like he lives in it. Is he alright? He looks like he’s knee deep in a mid-life crisis.
R159 I’m glad Dame DR was a massive diva. She’d earned the right. She was also old and probably just wanted to go back to her hotel room.

Kit's in the second episode of Netflix's "Criminal - UK". He's good at playing an arrogant asshole.

Maisie was recently interviewed by a Brazilian (?) publication. She said she has not seen Sophie's baby in person but they have face timed and done a lot of photo sharing. She also said that since the pandemic, the cast of GoT has been even more in touch than they were prior to COVID on WhatsApp.

Kit is at it again-according to Enty. I wonder who the new hookup is.

There is nothing in that blind that screams Harington, and he's only one of many suspects. Hooking up with someone outside of the marriage in London during Covid seems doubly stupid.
Emilia's fans who are obsessed with these two being together routinely send in blinds to Enty that are total bullshit.

Hello to Kit's publicist!

Also, I read some of the comments in the DM article linked in the comments of that blind - they are absolutely horrific. Bunch of deplorables. Kit made a harmless comment about his mother offering him gender fluid toys as a kid and people are attacking his parents as horrible people responsible for his drinking and depression? Fuck people. Seriously. The world fucking sucks right now.
And to R167, questioning a blind's veracity doesn't make me his publicist, ffs. Since when did CDAN become a bastion of truth? Go back to LSA, dumbass.

Why are you so hellbent on proving that Kit isn't the answer to that blind item? It's not like he's some kind saint or a stranger to bad behavior and poor judgement. There are a MILLION stories about his carousing in Belfast, banging all sorts of women (and not just Rose and Emilia). Some of these stories came from members of the crew or insiders. Hell, a few were posted on DL!
Enty wasn't the only gossip site to print these barely disguised blind items about Kit. And now you're foaming at the mouth because there's a rumor that Kit might be back to displaying poor judgement and bad behavior? Are you related to Kit? Are you his mom? Are you Rose? Why are you so emotionally invested in this? This is a gossip site and this is a gossip thread on GoT cast and crew. And last I heard, Kit was a member of that cast.
You seriously need to get a grip or take some valium. It's because of raging freaks like you that so many insiders stay the heck away from DL because they don't want to be subjected to the blithering, expletive-laden vitriol of an unhinged lunatic . Do you defend your relatives and loved ones with the same amount of psychotic fervor?

Lol, what? Rage freak? Valium? I'm [italic]hellbent[/italic]?? Hon, your hysterical screed says more about your emotional state than anything I just posted in my comment. I can assure you, I'm just sitting here calm as can be, making an observation. I'm well aware of the gossip over the years, but still doesn't make that blind about him. There's barely anything to it, it could be about anybody, which I suspect is the point. I'm not doubting someone here with insider knowledge, it's fucking CDAN.
My disgust over the gross comments at DM - yeah, right now, I'm a bit sick of the rethugs and their hateful comments everywhere you look. The climate right now has me on edge.
[quote]Are you Rose?
Yeah, you just outed yourself as a fat frau, probably one of those Emilia loons. Like I give a shit about his wife, lol.

I am interested to read Hibberd's book, even though I agree with R155 about him. Hibberd was at times embarrassingly sycophantic towards D&D, and a major apologist for almost everything they and the show were criticised for. I stopped bothering to read his recaps because he had very little journalistic objectivity towards it by the end. I got the impression that in return for having so much access to the set and to people involved in the show, that he was expected to toe the line and be largely uncritical. His earlier writing about the show was a bit different, he was more willing to call out shortcomings at times, until at least the end of season 3. But the oral history format does mean getting to hear from many more people involved in the show, not just having the story filtered through his "official" perspective.
But I wonder if EW releasing the extract about the failed original pilot might be a bit misleading, in the sense of leading people to expect that the book will be a lot more critical in general than it actually is. D&D never had any problems being honest about the problems and criticisms of the first pilot, it's the criticisms of what came later which they have rarely wanted to address. So I wonder how much difference of opinion Hibberd will be willing to include in the final book, or if he will mainly include comments from people which essentially endorse the official line that D&D and HBO took.
There's an old interview with Benioff on the BBC website from early 2003, after 25th Hour was released in the UK, where he answers questions sent in by viewers about screenwriting, and his tone is very different to the GoT years. Much more humble, and actually thanks people for both asking the questions and for reading his answers. Contrast that with the last few years of GoT where he and Weiss refused to engage with any kind of challenging questions in interviews, acting at times like they thought it was beneath them to have to do so.
What I would be most interested in is to know what notes went back and forth between D & D and HBO about the content of the show, and the struggle between the two sides: how much of what we got was D & D's choice, and how much were things that HBO requested or insisted that they include? And I would be very surprised if Hibberd got anyone to go on record about much of that. But seeing the range of people interviewed in the extracts so far does at least give me hope that we will hear some things we haven't heard before about other aspects of the show.

I'm curious to read what GRRM says in Hibberd's book. I did see from one of the EW excerpts GRRM did express his disappointment at D&D cutting out Lady Stoneheart from the TV show. He also said in another excerpt that he told D&D not to get rid of Rickon as he "had big plans for him." I'm curious what he says in the latter seasons when D&D basically wrote their version of a GoT fan fiction after there was no more writings to draw upon.
