This wasn’t the first time the famed trees came up again winds like these,  as in June of l2018, Storm Hector wreaked havoc on the woods.

The tourist attraction along the Bregagh Road near Armoy, initially had 150 trees, but only ninety are left standing.

Woodland Trust’s Paddy Cheng told NBC News North Ireland that the trees are as old as 1775, in his words, “old aged pensioners.” He said, “They are coming to the end of their life, normally beech trees survive around 250 years, they are probably now 240 years old.”

Joan Baird who is a Causeway Coast and Glens councilor believes that tourists are also a reason why for these trees extinction and the “terrible loss” for the site, the Belfast Telegraph reported.

The trees are one of the most Instagrammed locations. The tunnel of trees is reminiscent to Arya Stark escaping Kings Landing, her escape route of choice in doing so.

‘Game of Throne’ Star Leaks the News of an Upcoming Reunion Special

Keeping a secret is hard especially when your show is one of the most popular in the world, and you didn’t get the memo about not leaking anything EVER. Sean Bean who plays Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark, is spilling all the, well, beans! Sean Bean has been sharing the  hot news that a Game of Thrones reunion special will be hosted by Conan O’Brien to celebrate the show’s last season. Though the actor misses his co stars, he admittedly hasn’t been able to hang out with them as much as he wanted. The last time they got together was a month ago in Belfast but he does look forward to seeing them again.


The HBO network has neither confirmed nor denied these claims of a reunion special, however, we think it may just be true. If we know anything, the Game of Thrones cast are a tight knit group of friends, they will grab at any opportunity to meet up with each other. So hopefully, once the last season of Game of Thrones rolls out next year, we will hopefully get treated to a reunion that will be hilarious and heartwarming. Letting go of Game Of Thrones will be the hardest show to let go, we have watched the characters grow and evolve throughout the years. To see them all together one more time, even for a reunion will be one of the best send offs for the fans.

Peter Dinklage Reveals the Saddest Goodbye from ‘Game of Thrones’ Cast

Close relationships can be made especially when your filming a show as long as the cast of Game of Thrones has. The eighth and final season has long concluded filming and the cast must bid their farewells. According to Peter Dinklage, the Emmy Award-winning actor who portrays the cunning Tyrion Lannister, saying goodbye was a very difficult thing to do after they had spent so much time together. He goes on to express one of the most difficult goodbyes:



“I won’t say their name or their character’s name, but one of the young people on the show wrapped this past season and everybody was a wreck,” he said. “This person had grown up on the show, you know? They were a child and now they were an adult. And then they’re done. It’s like we were witnessing this person saying goodbye to their childhood. I know ‘Game of Thrones’ is just a TV show ― la-di-da ― but it was our life.”

He also had to bid farewell to his character, Tyrion Lannister, the most crafty character to come out of the Game of Thrones series. He stated that he was glad to see the way Tyrion’s story line was concluded in the series. The dynamic evolution of his character starts off as an alcoholic party animal who is despised by his siblings and father before becoming a very responsible and respected hand of the queen.


Tyrion had blossomed beyond his beginnings, from hiding in the shadows of his ‘deformities’ and ‘imperfections’ to someone who is heavily relied upon and uses his intelligence and wit to overcome challenges. We’re sad to see that the series will be ending and that we must say goodbye to some of our favorite characters, but we’re excited to see the upcoming series finale when it premieres in the first half of 2019.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harrington Always Wanted to Play Harry Potter!

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington spent this past weekend in the Toronto film festival and joked about maintaining his “winter is coming” look even though filming has ended. He mainly has to keep the look just in case there’s a need for a re-shoot.   


Once all physical requirements are over, Harrington is thinking about shaving his beard and growing his hair out mid-length, even though he jokingly admitted that “When I shave, I look like a tired child” during an interview with People.

His new project The Death and Life of John F. Donovan premiered in the Toronto film festival, in which Harrington plays the titular character, famous for being a child actor that starred in a Wizard based TV show. And this is probably why Harrington confessed to People that “I always wanted to be in a Potter movie. I always wanted to be Harry Potter.” You’re not the only one! What role would you see Harrington play in the Harry Potter Universe?
