In his batch, Harry Potter’s Defense Against the Dark Arts skills are unparalleled. While he has dealt with soul-sucking Dementors and other terrifying creatures, will he be similarly triumphant in Westeros? For Daniel Radcliffe, the only way to find out is if they put him in Game of Thrones.
“If they want to just bring me in and f***ing kill me, I would be so happy to do that,” the British actor told Digital Spy.
Radcliffe’s enthusiasm over the possibility of joining the HBO fantasy show is different from his interviews when asked about continuing his role as The Boy Who Lived. Reports have previously emerged that Radcliffe might consider playing an older version of his character ten years from now should there be a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child film. However, he told The Hollywood Reporter that it’s risky to go back because he might ruin “what other people have loved.”
“I’m never going to close that door, but I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it. At the moment it’s not even a concern because I’m too young to play the character, but even in ten years’ time I would still feel strange about going back to it.”
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones Season 7 won’t premiere until next year, but fans are already coming up with various theories. The show’s stars can’t help but tease fans with their remarks on the show’s script.
Maisie Williams previously tweeted out that “nothing will you prepare you for this.” At the Emmy Awards where the show emerged victoriously, Emilia Clarke revealed that “there’s another battle that’s epic.”
Her revelation appears to complement HBO’s recent casting calls. The network is looking for extras who are fine with having shaved heads and beards, the known characteristics of the Unsullied. Additional horses are likewise sought, hinting the involvement of the Dothraki warriors. Will Game of Thrones Season 7 finally show a war between Daenerys and Cersei?
There are two seasons left for Game of Thrones and Sophie Turner reveals that the cast members are already feeling sad thinking about their farewell. Turner also revealed to Variety that not everyone will make it out alive on Game of Thrones Season 7, something that might not be surprising because of the show’s propensity to get rid of beloved characters.
“It’s quite sad. It really feels like things are wrapping up and coming to an end. We’ve got one more season…well, not all of us,” she said.
Game of Thrones fans can still look forward to George R.R. Martin’s Winds of Winter book. Many rejoiced when Amazon France published a listing for the highly-anticipated novel. The date is set for March 2017. Martin’s publisher, Penguin Random House, immediately shunned the rumors. The publisher said that on-sale dates for the upcoming novel are inaccurate. The statement read that “the world will know” once there’s an official Winds of Winter release date.
In January, Martin announced on his blog that he missed a major deadline which meant that the Game of Thrones television show would now have its own story. He initially planned to release the A Song of Ice and Fire’s sixth book in April but wasn’t able to do so because “sometimes the writing goes well and sometimes it doesn’t.” A Dance with Dragons, the last novel in the series, was published in 2011.
The author wrote that he’d no longer set deadlines.
“I am not going to set another deadline for myself to trip over. The deadlines just stress me out. I am going back to my stance from last March, before all this. It will be done when it’s done. And it will be as good as I can possibly make it.”
He also assured fans that the Game of Thrones show won’t spoil the books.
