The Latest ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Theory Has Mariah Carey At Its Center And Fans Can’t Deal

Two years ago when Game Of Thrones was featuring its Season 7 premiere and fans were watching Arya Stark make her way to the Riverlands with bated breath, fans nearly lost their cool when  Ed Sheeran made an appearance. Some were thrilled, some threw Joffrey- style tantrums. In either case, the appearance left quite a few fans divided. However, when it comes to an appearance by one true Afro-Latina queen, the world has found common ground.

Flashing her love for the big HBO series, Carey dropped a major fanfic spoiler that Twitter could just not handle.

In a post with a caption that read “Major Game of Thrones spoilers….” Carey shared a photo of herself on the Iron Throne and holy hell did it cause a stir.

Fans had all kinds of fun with the post but mostly replies to it were begging for this to come to fruition.

Because let’s be real having “I Don’t Know Her” Carey on the Iron Throne at the end is the ideal.

Of course with all of her star power, Carey’s tweet went viral pretty quickly with nearly 20K retweets and over 76K likes.

And of course, the replies brought up all of Carey’s best GOT-like moments that were absolutely savage.

Of course with Mariah Carey now part of our fantasy casting, we couldn’t help but pull for a little more Latinos in the show.

GOT is STARVED for Latino representation, this is why we decided to reimagine this epic saga with an all-Latino cast. If you think you can come up with better GoT Latino casting choices let us know in the comment section below.

Daenerys Targaryen: Tessa Thompson

Who better to play the role of Daenery than the badass Tessa Thompson. We already know that she is able to rock out as a superhero like she did in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Jon Snow: Diego Boneta

Mexican actor, Diego Boneta, not only has some resemblance to Jon Snow but he’s also been trained in sword fighting. He did play the role of a Jewish rebel in the miniseries “The Dovekeeper.”

Sansa Stark: Bella Thorne

What better redheaded Latina than Bella, who looks more like a Season 7 Sansa. Definitely less childlike and more like a woman ready to take charge of her kingdom.

Cersei Lannister: Shakira

Blonde wavy hair, beautiful and known all around the land.. Those are all things the Colombian superstar has in common with the Queen Cersei.

Khal Drogo: Marlon Teixeira

There’s no denying it, Brazilian model Marlon Teixeira looks like Khal’s baby [hotter] brother. All you need to do is add some beard hair extensions and some heavy smokey eye makeup and you have an instant Dothraki.

Jamie Lannister: William Levy

What about Cuban actor William Levy? Not only is he tall, blonde and well-built but he and Shakira would make a great couple… can you imagine how beautiful the “Baratheon“ kids would look?

Lord Varys: Juan Gabriel

Flashy outfits? Loving personality? There’s no question about it, Juan Gabriel would be the perfect choice to play the role of Lord Varys. Obviously he is dead, however, they do have holograms nowadays so, there you go.

Arya Stark: Selena Gomez

The short-haired brunette could easily become the youngest of the Stark clan. Maybe this could be Selena’s crossover to more dramatic roles on TV. Plus, she’d be able to contribute to the soundtrack.

Grey Worm: Bruno Mars

You might be asking why are we pairing these two Afro-Caribbeans musicians but have you noticed how much they look alike? It’s like they’re actually related to one another.

Missandei: Nathalie Emmanuel

Who better to play the role Missandei than the OG Missandei actress Nathalie Emmanuel who is also Dominican???

Catelyn Stark: Salma Hayek

Who better to play the role of the Fierce Lady of Winterfell, who will do whatever it takes to protect her kin, than Mexican beauty Salma Hayek. Coincidentally, she has already played the part of a medieval Noblewoman in “Tale of Tales.”

Margaery Tyrell: Alexis Bledel

When you need a Latina with big blue eyes and a porcelain-like complexion, just like Margeary, it has to be Alexis Bledel.

Joffrey Baratheon: Frankie Muniz

There’s probably no actor that looks more like Joffrey Baratheon than “Malcolm In The Middle” star, Frankie Muniz. As such, he would make the perfect match to play this brat.

Ellaria Sand: Eva Mendes

These beauties might not be twins but they sure have the same goddess-like poise needed for the role of strong and beautiful Ellaria Sand.

Lady Olenna Tyrell: Ivonne Coll

Credit: Game of Thrones. HBO / The Dovekeeper. CBS


Remember Jane’s abuelita from Jane The Virgin? Well, we think she would make a great (maybe a bit younger) version of bad**s Lady Olena.

Bran Stark: Tyler Alvarez

They may not be up at the beginning of the list but Isaac and Tyler are probably one of the pairs who have the strongest resemblance. Honestly, it’s hard to tell them apart.

Melisandre: Camille Belle

The Indie star, Camilla Belle and her piercing eyes are definitely the perfect choice for the all-powerful Red Woman. Just look at how well she would be able to pull the look off.

Hodor: Luis Guzman

Maybe Hodor and Guzman don’t have the same height but they sure can pull that scruffy medieval look. It also helps that everyone loves Guzman.

Petyr Baelish: Raul Esparza

Some might not know who this Littlefinger look-alike is but if you’re a fan of “Law & Order: SVU” then surely you’ll notice that Esparza is none other than ADA Rafael Barba.

Theon Greyjoy: Diego Luna

Credit: Game of Thrones. HBO / Diego. Digital Image. The Hollywood Reporter. March 26, 2018.


The Mexican actor may not be a dirty blonde with super pale skin but he sure would make a great Theon.

Latinas Shared The Movies And Shows That Made Them Feel Seen

Nickelodeon

It’s no secret that over the past few decades, people of color worked to fight for equal representation on screens both big and small. While, of course, there have been great POC and LGTBQ relationships on television there’s really been a spike in the spectrum of representation since our early years watching television and learning about relationships.

Recently, we asked Latinas on Instagram what shows and movies featured their favorite most diverse couples.

And the answers threw us for a time loop!

Check them out below!


“Maria and Luis on Sesame Street.”- melissa_phillips71


“Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner is The Bodyguard, they reminded me of my parents and they loved to play the soundtrack.” –millenialmarta


“The leads in Someone Great, Jane and Michael the virgin and the lesbian relationship Gentrified. It’s been 30 years and I finally found characters I can relate to.” –allyss_abyss_

“Most definitely, “Brooklyn 99”: two female Hispanics as regulars and a white person playing a Hispanic (Andy Samberg’s character’s last name is Peralta, which is a Spanish surname).” – seadra2011

“Holt and Kevin(and Rosa Diaz) have changed the way people have perceived gay couples and gay people. Nine Nine!” –chaoticbiguy


“The first on-screen presence that made me feel seen/represented period was @justinamachado ‘s character on One Day At A Time. A Latina veteran struggling with her mental health while trying to juggle school, work, love, and family? And as a main character? Whew….“-vieja.metiche

“Taína! It was on Disney if I remember correctly?? Then @americaferrera in sisterhood of the traveling pants as Carmen. 😭❤️ her life was like mine. Growing up in suburbs but never really having a place culturally.. but my girlfriends still had my back no matter our background.” –chessy__a

“The Golden Girls” reboot isn’t the only show revamped virtually for charity.

Earlier this summer NBC brought the cast from the beloved “Parks and Recreation” series together for a reunion. Actors Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir, and Retta all took part in the reunion alongside a group of guest stars from the Pawnee world.

“Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,” the show’s executive producer Michael Schur said in a statement. “I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old ‘Parks and Rec’ team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!”

The show works to raise funds for families in need during the time of the pandemic.

“In such uncertain times, we can’t think of anyone better than Leslie Knope to unite our country with her unbridled enthusiasm and compassion,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment also explained in a statement. “A huge thank you to Mike Schur and the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation’ for putting this wonderful special together and bringing a smile to all our faces while raising money for such a worthwhile cause.”

“The Golden Girls” special airs tonight at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. The show will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and hosted by actress Lena Waithe.
