0 Have your say SCHOOLGIRL Jessie Wilson has been given a taste of Hollywood life – by playing a younger version of Maisie Williams in a new music video. Jessie, seven, nailed her audition by being a ‘spitting image’ of Maisie as a child.

For dedicated fans of both the Game of Thrones TV show and George RR Martin’s books, one of the most significant page-to-screen switches was a majore mess about with the characters’ ages.

The hot new couple really hit it off and fans have already predicted that Daenerys may be pregnant after their love making.

According to the legend, the figure would be born ‘amidst salt and … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones betrayal could see Jon Snow murder Daenerys Targaryen and Jaime Lannister turn on Cersei in most disturbing fan theories yet
