‘Game Of Thrones’ Bringing Back Fan Fave Character In Season 8!
[This is not really a SPOILER so don’t worry, fans.]
Game of Thrones stepped up their budgets for last season, but one character was still apparently out of their price range.
GHOST, Jon Snow’s faithful direwolf!
Now, visual FX supervisor Joe Bauer told HuffPo the beloved pet “has a fair amount of screen time in season eight.”
Believe it or not, we haven’t even seen Ghost since season six as he was notably absent from The Battle of the Bastards, where his master’s life was constantly in danger.
The problem is, wolves are trickier to animate than dragons because we know what they look like IRL.
“The direwolves are tough because you don’t want to get them wrong, so we end up always shooting real wolves and doing a scaling trick with them, but the real wolves only behave in certain ways.”
That combo of VFX and animal wrangling has proven more trouble than it’s worth most of the time. But we’re glad to hear for the final run they’re pulling out all the stops. As Bauer says:
“Ghost does show up, and he does some … he’s very present and does some pretty cool things in Season 8.”
Straight chills, y’all!

Lena Dunham Says Goodbye To Her Beloved Yorkie Bowie In Heartfelt Instagram Post
Our hearts go out to Lena Dunham today.
The Girls creator shared the sad news with fans that her Yorkshire Terrier Bowie passed away.
In her Instagram post, she said the passing was “peaceful and patient and loving.”
She remembered her beloved Yorkie fondly, writing:
“Bowie left everyone who saw her, in the street or the airport or the Rite Aid, with a crazy smile. She kept me safe at night, even if it was just from the indistinct shadow of a tank top strewn over a lamp.”
So sorry for your loss!
Read the whole post and see more pics of the sweet Bowie (below):
As many of you know, in the last 3 months my heart was stolen by an irascible 13 year old Yorkie named Bowie. After spending a lifetime with my sister @scotlan, her home now contained a baby and another on the way and Bowie’s crotchety old self wouldn’t condone it so she came to live with me, and what started as a tentative guardianship became a full scale obsession. We went to brunch and therapy and the set of a TV show and took at least 5 flights across the US. We laid our heads in a few very chic hotel rooms and walked up and down the river a million miles. She made me feel safe and strong in a sea of change and reminded me that joy needn’t be diminished by a bunch o’ imperfect body parts (she wielded her 3 teeth/3 working legs in style.) My head knew she was 91 in dog years, but my heart felt she was just a sweet baby. On August 13th this sweet baby old mama went to her final home. After a weekend of rapid decline, I knew it was time to let her go so Scotty and I (along with her super model baby Clementine and her wise, cozy husband @mf.goodtimes) came together to bid her farewell. It was peaceful and patient and loving. We laughed and cried like the family that Bowie has made us. Bowie left everyone who saw her, in the street or the airport or the Rite Aid, with a crazy smile. She kept me safe at night, even if it was just from the indistinct shadow of a tank top strewn over a lamp. She made Scotty and my friendship something eternal and deep and boundless. I am so lucky to have been her second mom. I love you Scotty, Clem, JJ and my darling @iolovesyou for capturing it all. Please eat a grilled chicken breast in honor of your second favorite glam rocker today. Meanwhile, I’ll be donating to @seespotrescued in her name, for dogs who don’t have homes and dogs who need new ones.

Did Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Break Up Over POOP??
What a s**tty situation!
According to The Mirror earlier this week, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s marriage may have gone down the toilet because of a mysterious turd found in their bed!
Apparently, the drama started when the Pirates of the Caribbean actor reportedly arrived two hours late to his then-wife’s 30th birthday party in April 2016. Although it is unclear when he exactly made the accusation, Depp reportedly accused the actress and her friends of purposely soiling the sheets!
The actor wasn’t going to take her crap, and is said to have stormed out of their Los Angeles penthouse following an argument.
Heard claims the excrement was left by their Yorkshire terrier Boo (who has bowel problems). The housekeeper — who had the unfortunate job of cleaning up the mess — said the poo was too big to be from a mutt.
Sources close to the 55-year-old thespian say there is “strong, photographic evidence that connected Amber to the faeces,” and it was left as a “prank.”
However, an insider close to the starlet revealed:
“Boo has some serious bowel control issues. There was never a joke, it wasn’t something done to be disrespectful… It was an innocent thing, it’s what pets will do. We don’t have anything else to say. Ms Heard is moving on and we do not want to engage in this nonsense.”
In May 2016, a month after the reported incident, the couple allegedly had another fight about the turd. During this time, Amber accused Johnny of throwing a phone at her, though two policemen — who were at the scene — later said in legal papers there were no marks on her face. Johnny has also denied domestic violence.
When the 32-year-old starlet got a temporary restraining order during their divorce drama, she said Johnny made “paranoid and irrational accusations about some delusional idea,” explaining:
“He began obsessing about something untrue and his demeanour changed dramatically. He became angry.”
She ultimately withdrew the request once their split was settled in January 2017.
Amber ended up getting custody of their two canines, including dog Pistol.

Just FYI, Donald Trump Apparently Hates Dogs…
We just wrote off Donald Trump calling Omarosa a “dog” as more racist (and sexist) dehumanizing rhetoric.
But according to those who know him it’s more than that — the Washington Post pointed out after speaking to insiders on Tuesday that it was a particularly bad insult for the President because he has “an aversion” to dogs.
The article reads:
“Longtime Trump observers say it is a measure of his rage and sense of betrayal that he called Manigault Newman “that dog.” The president, who has an aversion to dogs and other pets, considers canine comparisons to be among his most devastating put-downs.”
So what you’re saying is… Trump HATES dogs?!
For the Post that was mentioned offhand, but srsly WTF! Who hates dogs??
Donald’s first ex-wife Ivanka Trump confirmed Donald’s distaste in her memoir, Raising Trump, saying he was “not a dog fan” and fought to keep her from bringing one home.
Fun fact: Trump is the first president to NOT have a dog in the White House since 1901 when William McKinley had a pair of kittens instead. Trump has no pets of any kind.
