    The "Game Of Thrones" Cast Thought Up Their Own Spinoff Shows And They're Hilarious

    Screw Robert's Rebellion and Dunk and Egg, now we want the Game of Thrones cooking show with body parts.

    Earlier this year, Game of Thrones fans rejoiced when it was confirmed that HBO has five pilot scripts in development for potential spinoffs when the show ends next year.


    Of course, it caused everyone to immediately go into speculation mode about what the spinoffs could possibly be about.


    Well, we decided to go one better and actually ask the cast themselves what spinoffs THEY'D like to see, and let's just say their ideas got ~pretty~ interesting...

    Facebook: video.php

    Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) began and gave us an example we'd love to see.


    Sophie: I don't know about my character. I don't know. I don't know if Sansa will be included in the spinoffs, but I believe that it probably wouldn't be. I'd like to see prequels. I'd like to see how the houses came to despise each other. That would be fun! I don't think I'd like to see older versions of our characters or anything. That would kind of break my heart. But I would love to see how the dynamics of Westeros came to be as we see them in the first season. That would be interesting.

    But then things became pretty hilarious as their imaginations ran wild...

    Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) took a while to form an idea they agreed on. Gemma liked the idea of a leisure centre run by the Greyjoys, but they finally went one better with a Mary Berry-style cookery show – with body parts, of course.


    Pilou Asbæk: Actually, we don't know that much about Greyjoy!

    Gemma Whelan: Maybe the Greyjoys open a leisure centre. The Greyjoys open, like, a swimming pool with a difference. [both burst out laughing]

    PA: They move to the south and they open...

    GW: It's like Brittas Empire for the Greyjoys and they're at the helm. We would be likely to keep a baby in a drawer, wouldn't we?

    PA: I quite like Iain [Glen]'s story with the disease he's got. [points to his arm] How did the people that have got that disease become like that?

    GW: [pulls a face] What a depressing spinoff! I want a leisure centre with the Greyjoys. You want to go to some horrible GP...

    PA: [thinks some more] Maybe some cooking classes with the Greyjoys!

    GW: Oh yeah. A cookery show! Mary Berry meets the Greyjoys. Yes!


    PA: But we have to use body parts.

    GW: Yeah, alright. [pulls another face] We need to discuss that bit. [laughs]

    John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) and Rory McCann (The Hound) also thought about how they'd like to see their characters post-Game of Thrones.


    John Bradley: Sam and Gilly going around doing home renovations or something. Just something quite mundane. Or something like The Trip. Sam and Gilly going around testing restaurants and things. Something Sam deserves and something Sam quite likes.

    Rory McCann: I would go for a road trip with the Stark girls and knock some skulls. [grins]


    And let's just say Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) and Daniel Portman (Podrick) got reaaaally into the idea.


    [both look excited]

    Daniel Portman: Now's our time! Funny you say that. Funny that you mention that. I'm not going to confirm this, but I'm not going to not confirm it either...

    Jacob Anderson: Sizzling up in the industry right now...

    DP: So...working title is Double P and [looks at Jacob]...

    JA: G-Dubz.

    DP: [laughs] G-Dubz. And it's a gallavantry adventure comedy...

    JA: ...with a romantic twist.

    DP: With a romantic twist. Starring Jacob and myself as Podrick and Grey Worm. A sort of buddy movie type...thing.

    JA: Very kind of Miami Vice-ish.


    DP: Why do you think I've got my sleeves rolled up on my jacket?! Right? Miami Vice. That's what they did in Miami Vice.

    JA: Yeah, and I'm like, "I'm tired of this shit!"

    BuzzFeed: Excellent.

    DP: That is how you pitch! That's how you pitch an idea, guys.

    JA: And it may or may not be set 2,000 years in the future. [laughs] That was too specific.

    DP: Space dragons. Yeah! Space dragons.

    BuzzFeed: We would watch.

    Although we're not sure Carice Van Houten (Melisandre) was in awe of Liam Cunningham's (Davos) idea.


    Carice Van Houten: A Joffrey spinoff. I would really enjoy that.

    Liam Cunningham: I think Better Call Davos is a great idea. I think it's got to be Better Call Davos. That's the spinoff that will work. That will make a fortune. HBO can retire at the end of that one.


    Thanks for entertaining us, Game of Thrones cast! Now we want to see all of these shows!
