The 11 Best ‘Game Of Thrones’ Couples

Ranked From Somewhat Adorable To Downright Lovable

 

BUSTLE – Game of Thrones may gravitate toward ruthless stabbings and the occasional beheading, but underneath all that bloodshed lies the heart of some truly epic love stories. Naturally, many of those said love stories tend to take a backseat due to all of the other tens of thousands of storylines going on, but they’re still there nonetheless and help to make the HBO series the hit success that it is. Granted, even the best Game of Thrones couples have faced their fair share of ups and downs, most of which have ended due to death or betrayal. But hey, when you live in an area like Westeros, that’s the risk everyone kinda has to take.

 

So who are these mystery duos, you may ask, who have pierced our hearts with their inspiring and, at times, intoxicating romances? I suppose everyone’s opinion on the matter would vary slightly, depending upon your tastes in TV love interests. But on the whole, there are certain Game of Thrones couples that inarguably reign supreme over all others, regardless of your own personal prejudices. No one on this show is perfect. Far from it, actually. However, certain couples manage to get pretty dark close. So without further adieu, here is my official ranking of the top 11 GoT couples, ranked from least to most.

So they aren’t an actual couple yet. SUE ME! It’s bound to happen and based on the chemistry we’ve seen between them already, it’s going to be amazing.

Working with partner Giles Deacon: ‘I wear armour and I wear couture – both fascinate me’

TELEGRAPH – London is melting. It’s the hottest day of the year, and outside Giles Deacon’s Brick Lane studio, the youth of Shoreditch are wilting in their rompers and crop tops. Inside, we’re above it all in the couture zone – a place of custom-woven double jacquards and hand-painted gold feathers, of gowns so lavish, so transporting and so expensive, they may well come equipped with their own weather systems.

 

Behind a closed door, Deacon is directing Gwendoline Christie (the Game of Thrones and Star Wars star who happens to be his partner) as she swishes through a series of looks from his first couture collection.

At 6ft 3in and with a regal confidence befitting the only actress ever to portray both a Shakespearean queen and a Stormtrooper commander, Christie seems born for gowns, particularly those with Deacon-esque heights of verve and individuality. She wears a silk gown printed with bird eggs of the British Isles with the same confidence and ease that most women would bring to their favourite jeans.

 

‘Giles has long been one of my favourite designers,’ Christie says via email later. ‘He has two of my favourite attributes in artists: wild imagination and technical rigour. [His designs] can be practical, otherworldly, sculptural and mind-bending, but you always feel celebrated as a woman when you wear them… Their confidence somehow increases yours. It’s quite a power for a designer to have. His clothes have personalities.’

Game of Thrones: HBO announces summer return, 7 episodes

HBO makes it official: Emmy favorite to return later with shortened 7th season

 

EW – Summer is coming.

 

HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.

 

Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).

 

Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours).

 

Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland. It’s been a couple years since the Thrones team used Iceland for significant shooting, having primarily used the location for North of the Wall scenes when Jon Snow was embedded with the Wildlings camp.

 

“Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

 

Benioff and Weiss also recently told the UFC Unfiltered podcast that production was getting a later start this year to film in wintery locations, which prompted speculation that the show’s return date might also be pushed. “We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ — and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.” (Usually the show begins production in July).

 

The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.

 

Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.

 

Thrones season 6 broke HBO ratings records once again with episodes averaging more than 23 million viewers, including streaming, repeats and DVR playback The drama was also nominated for 23 primetime Emmys last week, more than any of other series for the third year running.

Gwendoline Christie shares epic Rogue One cast selfie

EW – With the Star Wars Celebration panels coming to a close in London Friday, the Rogue One team wanted to depart on a social media high note. Leave it to panel moderator and Star Wars: The Force Awakens alum Gwendoline Christie to capture the moment to share with fans.

 

Captain Phasma herself tweeted a photo of the Rogue One crew, including Ben Mendelsohn, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Felicity Jones, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Mads Mikkelsen, and Forest Whitaker to get every fan of the Star Wars universe excited. “Thank you @StarWars #StarWarsCelebration #RogueOne for having me moderate the panel,” captioned the actress. “It was INCREDIBLE!”

 

 

The panel proved to be eye-opening for fans as footage from the upcoming spin-off was revealed, and the cast gave more details on their characters. While Christie does not appear in the film, fan favorite characters have been confirmed, including the return of Darth Vader.

EW – The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel at Friday’s Star Wars Celebration in London opened with the tribute to those killed on Thursday in Nice, France during an attack on Bastille Day.

 

Before revealing new footage from the first Star Wars standalone film, actress Gwendoline Christie – who appeared in last year’s The Force Awakens – led the crowd in a moment of silence.

 

“I’d like to just take a moment… it’s impossible for us to sit here today at Celebration, particularly at an event called Celebration, without thinking about the terrible events that have happened not far from here. On behalf of everyone, our hearts go out to the people of Nice and France,” she said as the crowd cheered. “I’d like us all to just take a moment to send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers.”

 

Following the moment of silence, someone in the crowd began singing “La Marseillais,” the French national anthem, in a show of solidarity. An emotional Christie clapped along as the crowd sang.

 

On Thursday in Nice, a terrorist attack left at least 84 dead and more than 200 injured, when a truck struck civilians following a celebration of Bastille Day.
