It’s hard to imagine Game of Thrones without Daenerys Targaryen, specifically as portrayed by actress Emilia Clarke. Only now are we finding out how close that came to being reality. Ms. Clarke sat down with The New Yorker for a Personal History article about how she had not one, but two aneurysms and had to have surgery for each one. She also shares a bit of how she officially became involved with this indie little HBO program and the charity she helped found to assist others in the same situation. It’s a fascinating read for the peek into her head, literally and figuratively.

OK, Game of Thrones fans, war is nigh. HBO released the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7, which will first air on July 16th, 2017. The show outpaced the books during Season 6, leaving many fans all the hungrier to know what happens. Judging by the trailer, what happens is war, war, battles, dragons, war, and a side of war thrown in just for fun. In fact, the closing line of the trailer is, “The great war is hear,” and if I’m not mistaken, it’s one Jon Snow saying it. But hey, I could be wrong. Enjoy!

Peter Dinklage From Game of Thrones Fears His iPhone

What does the actor who plays a character who faces dragons, monsters, magic, and even his very own father fear in real life? If it’s Peter Dinklage—Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, we’re talking about, it’s his iPhone 7. Mr. Dinklage gave an interview to CNET to promote Rememory, a SciFi film debuting this week at the Sundance Film Festival. In that interview, he said, “I just got an iPhone about six months ago, friends made fun of me. I’m afraid of it.” There’s a reason, though, and that’s concern over how tech is changing the way humans interact. To wit, when people approach him, the interaction has become solely about the selfie-with-Peter. He said, “We’re not even allowing a memory to sink in. They’ll have proof of meeting me, but […] there wasn’t anything to remember, because all you did was just take a picture.” It’s an interesting perspective on this particular concern.
