According to Game of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn, fans of the partnership between Tyrion Lannister and infamous sellsword Bronn needn't be too disheartened by the fact the duo are now fighting on opposite sides.
"I was surprised when I was watching it".
"I spent weeks on that sequence", Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn, told HBO. It was all part of the sequence and training.
The poor dragon! "The armorers on this show are just geniuses, and they try to make everything as authentic as possible", he said, adding that he really shot the piece of equipment during filming. While the Lannister army lay burning along with all the grain taken from Highgarden, our favourite sellsword Ser Bronn of the Blackwater immediately lost favour with fans after he took on another favourite character - Drogon.
Although they may have been fighting for opposing forces on this occasion, Tyrion and Bronn once forged a friendship that quickly garnered an enthusiastic response from Game of Thrones fans. "It's a whole dance going on".
Game of Thrones is perhaps one of the very few television shows which can pit two beloved characters against each other in a scene and still not let the viewer hate either of the two.
Asked if people should be concerned about Bronn's well-being at the end of the episode, Flynn replied, "I think it depends on if you care for him".
The trailer for the upcoming "Eastwatch" sees Queen Daenerys Targaryen forcing the surviving Lannister forces to bend the knee or face death, and you can bet that if Bronn is there, he will be hopping over to Team Dany.
"I guess it's a compliment when you're buying a table and somebody's like "You're that f***ing bitch off Game of Thrones"," Headey said. Although since the day the battle aired, I've been a little unpopular, I have to say.
Welsh actor Iwan Rheon, who plays ruthless villain Ramsay Bolton, told IMDb he gets called a bastard "a lot".
