Here’s why Yara Greyjoy is not in these new Game of Thrones pictures


Just currently, we’ve been hit with an avalanche of recent Game of Thrones content material. The season Eight trailer is the brand new star of the present, however not lengthy earlier than that, we received a collection of season Eight pictures, posters that includes characters sitting on the Iron Throne, and Entertainment Weekly cowl spreads. Game of Thrones has an enormous solid of characters, and most of them had been someplace within the combine.

But not all of them. There had been a couple of notable absences. Neither Tormund Giantsbane nor Beric Dondarrion had been featured in any of those promotional pictures (though they’re each within the trailer). Bronn is nowhere to be seen, neither is the indomitable Lyanna Mormont. Gendry, Qyburn and Podrick Payne all present up briefly within the trailer, however they’re nowhere to be seen within the posters or pictures.

And additionally Yara Greyjoy. When final we noticed the character, her evil uncle Euron (who does get his received poster, FYI), was marching her by way of the Red Keep after defeating her armada at sea. At the tip of season 7, Theon vowed to steer the few Ironborn troopers nonetheless loyal to her in a rescue try. But Yara was nowhere to be seen within the promotional materials (she’s not within the trailer, both; not one of the Greyjoys are, which you’ll interpret the way you see match). Was HBO attempting to inform us one thing?

Happily, no. Actor Gemma Whelan has revealed on Twitter that she didn’t miss the photoshoots by alternative, however due to different gigs and since she’s busy elevating her new child. (Anyone who seems at her Instagram can discover ample proof of that.)

That’s good to listen to, as a result of Yara’s been with the present a protracted whereas and I’m trying ahead to her being a key a part of wrapping up the seasons-long Greyjoy household drama. I want she’d had her personal poster, however so long as she and Theon take down Euron in season 8, I’ll get previous it.
