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.
5. Daenerys Targaryen & Daario Naharis
Being a badass queen can take a lot out of you, which is what made Dany’s relationship with Daario so special. This guy absolutely worships the ground she walks on and constantly encourages her to go after what she both wants and deserves. And even though it may have started out as a purely sexual thing, they’ve developed a special connection, which is what made their sudden break-up all the more heartbreaking. Poor Michiel Huisman. (Also, call me?)
DAILY SABAH – “The Ottoman Lieutenant” which is a U.S. production starring Michiel Huisman, Ben Kingsley, Josh Hartnett, Hera Hilmar and Turkish actors Haluk Bilginer and Selçuk Yöntem is one of the most anticipated films among Turkish movie buffs. Set in World War I, the film tells the love story between an idealistic American nurse and a Turkish officer in the Great War. Directed by Joseph Ruben and written by Jeff Stockwell, the film features actor Huisman, who is famous for his role as Daario Naharis in the acclaimed series the Game of Thrones, who plays the Ottoman officer İsmail. The film was primarily shot in Cappadocia, the land of fairy chimneys, and is expected to hit theaters in 2017. Considering the cast and the production, “The Ottoman Lieutenant” seems to be the biggest Hollywood movie about the Ottomans to-date.
MOVIE NEWS GUIDE – Discovery Channel is all set to enrich viewers with their three-part limited series Harley and The Davidsons scheduled to premiere on Sep. 5, 2016.
The series is an impactful endeavor by Discovery to chronicle the growth of the iconic Harley Davidson brand of motorcycles. The series will trace the growth trajectory of its founders, brothers Walter and Arthur Davidson, and their buddy, Bill Harley, during a dynamic time of change and technological advances.
The company, nearly a hundred years old, is a testimony to the hard work and innovative practices that have led to the growth and success of this legendary brand.
The casting for this miniseries, Harley and The Davidsons, includes Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Robert Aramayo (Game of Thrones) and Bug Hall (The Little Rascals).
The official trailer for this much awaited miniseries premiered at the summer Television Critics Association press tour yesterday, according to Deadline.
In the trailer, viewers cannot miss Huisman’s Walter saying, “I’m going to put my money into this. We’ve got to be different. We’ve got to be bigger, stronger, faster.”
In the three-night miniseries, viewers will be given the opportunity to understand the mindset of the founders, their limitations and the stumbling blocks to their success. Viewers can take a leaf out of their experience and extrapolate it into their own lives to beat odds, surmount obstacles and make a success of their ventures.
Harley and the Davidsons is scheduled to begin its three-night premiere on Sep. 5, Monday, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery channel.
The series, Harley and The Davidsons, is a treatise on hardwork and success and the will to surpass indomitable odds to achieve their dream. The series shows that the road to success is never easy, but persistence and diligence pay off.
The trailer has created a record with the video touching about 7 million views.
DEADLINE – Harley and the Davidsons is part of Discovery Communications chief Rich Ross’s campaign to widen Discovery Channel’s scope, and looks to be off to a good start with its trailer clocking 7M views in about a week, outstripping any trailer ever posted to plug the networks’ well-known Shark Week, Ross said at TCA this afternoon.
Harley Davidson company opened up its archives, and family members spoke to researchers about family member and gave them historical background that was used to form characters and key events for the miniseries, debuting next month. But producers had complete editorial independence, and the company had no financial arrangement with the project, Raw Television’s EP Dimitri Doganis told TV critics this afternoon at TCA.
All the motorcycles used were made from scratch working, from archival information provided by the company, according to the projects’ bike fabricator Alex Wheeler. Harley and the Davidsons tells the story of founders Walter and Arthur Davidson and their friend Bill Harley, and charts the birth of this iconic bike during a time of great social and technological change beginning at the turn of the 20th century.
The frames were steel, there were no shocks, and the clutch was a leather belt that would tightening around a wheel, according to cast member Gabe Luna.
At bike racing events in the early days of the company, the motorcycles, which had no brakes, no gears, and hit 100 MPH, spewed oil, turning banked wooden tracks around which they raced into ice rinks. Historical data shows they were not only hugely dangerous to the riders and but also massively dangerous to spectators, especially when a bike caught on fire. “It genuinely was incredibly dangerous,” Doganis added, redundantly.
