Where Aren't Sophie Turner & Maisie Williams In 'Game Of Thrones' Musical For Red Nose Day? — VIDEO
Ever adorable and willing to contribute to a good cause, the cast of Game Of Thrones has teamed up with Coldplay for Red Nose Day. According to the charity's official website, “Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh.” Even if though it’s the first year for Red Nose Day in the U.S., the event has really gotten its name out there and is supported by a ton of A-list celebrities.
The very musical cast of Game of Thrones and Coldplay teamed up to raise awareness for the cause, and apparently, it was no small affair. This thing is a full musical: beginning, middle, climax of action, denouement. The whole damn enchilada. And plenty of the HBO series' stars are present, adorable, and surprisingly musically talented. (If you forgot, Nikolaj Coster-Waldeau recently showed off his musical prowess by singing a gorgeous rendition of an ode to Jaime Lannister.)
But unfortunately, the musical is very thin on women because GoT faves Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner were busy. But how can I be totally satisfied if I can't see Arya Stark performing some version of a song about the Red Wedding?! So not fair.
Well, it turns out Turner was absent because she's was at another charitable event, one that raises awareness about cancer. Williams, in the meantime, is at home with her sister, who's pregnant, and has been filling up her Twitter feed with incredible, insightful, and hilarious tweets about pregnancy.
In the video, we do get hottie with a body but without a hand Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldeau). Gracing us with piano accompaniment, he croons lyrics like, "Could you lend me a hand, ‘cause I’ve only got one... I miss my fingers like I miss your son." Truly poetry, my man. Our favorite drunken exiled Lannister, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) also does his part, performing a song with a long, long list of everyone who has died before him on the show, and getting braggy about the fact that he is, miraculously, still alive (thank goodness!). I'm also happy that Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) are in the videos. Jon Snow may know almost nothing, but he does know how to sing. Play us out, Tyrion.
