'Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams teases Arya's dark season 4

Game-of-Thrones-309.jpg

Even by Game of Thrones standards, Arya Stark has had a pretty rough few years. Her dad was falsely branded a traitor and executed. Her mom and oldest brother were betrayed and murdered. She thinks her two younger brothers are dead (they’re not). She’s been imprisoned, tormented, and now she’s saddled with the brutish Sandor “The Hound” Clegane [Rory McCann] making her way across the dangerous countryside.

So are Arya’s misfortunes going to continue in season 4? Actress Maisie Williams says her character is long overdue for some positive news, and admitted some frustration on Arya’s behalf. “I feel like Arya deserves something good to happen,” she told EW during an interview conducted a couple weeks ago while the actress was attending the South by Southwest film festival in Austin. “She’s the most unfortunate character, nothing is going her way. She has powerful scenes, but not without a lot of mess-ups. It’s frustrating for me to never have an accomplishing scene and I think frustrating for the audience as well. But I think that’s coming soon.”

Of course, for Arya an accomplishing scene would likely mean either reuniting with one of her long lost family members, or crossing a name or two off her vengeful bedtime death wish list — and her traveling companion The Hound is one of those names. “There is a dark turn in her that’s kind of frightening,” Williams teases. “She’s learning a lot from The Hound and she’s being heavily influenced by that. She’s so young, she’s like a sponge and getting knowledge. She’s heavily influenced by people around her. Being next to The Hound she’s learning his brutal ways.”

'Game of Thrones': Ygritte is super pissed in season 4

You meet somebody special. He’s hot; he’s nice; he’s got some noble blood and big, bushy hair. You introduce him to your friends and even take him to your special jacuzzi love cave. The only thing that annoys you is he acts all self righteous and ethical, which makes what happens next all the more infuriating: He betrays your friends, then runs away, ditching you to go hang out with his frat buddies at Castle Black. So it’s perhaps no surprise that Ygritte is really irked at Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 4.

'Game of Thrones': Pedro Pascal gives intel on Prince Oberyn and filming those sex scenes

Game-of-Thrones-S4-Pedro-Pascal.jpg

Game of Thrones returns on April 6 with a doozy of an episode and a doozy of a new character, the infamous Prince Oberyn (a.k.a. the Red Viper). Why the Red Viper? “He will poison you,” explains the man who plays him, Pedro Pascal. “He will stick you.” Pascal served up plenty of intel on his character and what to expect in season 4 when he stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio. And he explained why drama will follow when Oberyn stops into King’s Landing, because it seems the prince is not quite a fan of the Lannisters.

“He has only hate for the Lannisters, actually” explains Pascal. “He has shaped his entire life around his hate for the Lannisters.” (Fans of the books will know that hate springs from blame he assigns to the family for past events involving his sister, but we shall say no more here.) While Oberyn shows no fear, we couldn’t help but wonder if Pascal was nervous about filming some of Game of Thrones‘ notorious sex scenes, of which the actor became familiar with quite quickly — as in episode 1 quickly. “They warn you before you audition,” says Pascal of being told what was expected of him on the nudity front. But that wasn’t the thing the actor was most nervous about. “The thing I was scared of the most — it wasn’t the nakedness. It wasn’t the fighting with the spear and doing wushu martial arts. It was doing the scene with…”

Peter Dinklage talks 'Game of Thrones' season 4: Tyrion's journey, ignoring Twitter, nude scenes

game-of-throne-4.jpg

Tyrion is going back to jail. The savvy, witty, chronically misunderstood Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage, gets himself into serious trouble in Game of Thrones season 4, as you’ve doubtless seen from all those trailers. About an hour of screen time will take place in Tyrion’s cell this year — yet producers say this is the Emmy winner’s best performance on the show to date. Last September, the actor took a break while shooting the series in Croatia to speak to EW about acting and Tyrion’s next journey. (Bonus: It’s spoiler free.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How has Thrones changed you?
Peter Dinklage: The first couple of years it was pretty quiet … but the last couple of years have been crazy. I mean, I’m recognized, let me put it that way. When you’re on a TV show you get recognized more [than doing films] because it’s immediate. Like, “You were in my living room last night.” So, that’s changed me quite a bit. I’m not one of those people who takes it in stride. I’m a private person in many ways.

The impression I always get is you are someone who likes the work — but when it comes to award shows, press junkets and interviews, you’ll do it if you have to, but you don’t enjoy it too much.
I just think the less you know about an actor, the more serious you’ll take them as an actor, because they will disappear a little bit. Nowadays, there’s so much information about everybody that it’s hard to see the performance when you know what [the actor] had for dinner last night. You want to keep a mystery. I think it’s healthy too. You want your privacy as a human being.

You’re not on Twitter, which is not surprising. What about that doesn’t appeal to you? READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones': How Pedro Pascal landed season 4's coolest, sexiest new role

Game-of-Thrones-S4-Pedro-Pascal.jpg

Pedro Pascal was really upset. The Chilean actor was a Game of Thrones fan who previously had arcs on CBS’ The Good Wife and USA’s Graceland, but never thought he had a real chance of landing the coveted role of Oberyn Martell — a bold sexy Dornish prince seeking vengeance against the Lannister family for the rape and murder of his sister. So when Pascal taped his audition last year for the new season 4 role, he was dismayed to find his 17 script pages were full of spoilers.

“I was actually really upset the season was spoiled for me,” he recalls. “I was a true audience member of the show and when this audition came around, it still seemed unattainable. So, I put myself on tape with my [iPhone] and I sent it in. It’s impossible not to care because the writing is so good. You just kind of get into it, whether you think you have a chance for it or not.” READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' producers: George R.R. Martin's secret ending is 'absolutely' satisfying -- EXCLUSIVE

game-of-thrones-dragon.jpg

It’s a question George R.R. Martin’s fans have wondered for many years: Will the bestselling author’s five-books-and-counting Song of Ice and Fire saga have a satisfying ending? Will the destination, not just the journey, pay off?

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss know Martin’s planned final arcs of his as-yet-unwritten story. So we asked them.

First, some context: HBO’s Thrones is about to launch the fourth of a planned seven seasons (possibly eight) on April 6. Martin has two books left to come in his series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. When it comes to fan expectations, the Thrones producers are generally quite cautious about getting fans’ hopes up, especially since expectations tend on this saga to be so high already (asked if they’re “confident” season 4 of Thrones is their best yet, Weiss replied, “I wouldn’t say we’re too confident. I would say we’re terrified that it won’t be.”) READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' team: 7 seasons is the plan

Emilia-Clarke-.jpg

How long will HBO’s Game of Thrones run?

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tell EW that seven is probably the magic number.

“It feels like this is the midpoint for us,” Benioff says. “If we’re going to go seven seasons, which is the plan, season 4 is right down the middle, the pivot point.”

The seven season goal-line has been floated in the media before, but the writer-producers of the acclaimed fantasy hit series says they’re firmer than before that three more seasons sounds about right. READ FULL STORY

New 'Game of Thrones' trailer: 'Do you know what they did to my brother? And my mother?' -- VIDEO

Still steaming about the HBO Go outage that killed your plans to watch True Detective‘s finale? This might help: On Sunday, the cabler premiered another new trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres in a few short weeks. (They’d better get their server issues sorted out by then, or we will take what is ours, with fire and blood!)

Though the clip doesn’t feature many new revelations, it does include several shots of interest, especially for those who have read George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga: Sansa (Sophie Turner) mourning her slain family; new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) noting that if you can’t protect the ones you love, you must avenge them; Dany (Emilia Clarke) overseeing a catapult attack and swearing to “answer injustice… with justice;” Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) bitterly saying “we mustn’t disappoint Father” over a shot of Tywin (Charles Dance) lounging on the Iron Throne. Also, the dragons (actual dragons) have gotten a lot bigger.
