Game of Thrones is currently filming in several exotic locations throughout the world, and like ravens sent from Castle Black we keep receiving bits of distressing news from far-off lands.

First we learned that a Croatian church was trying to stop Lena Headey from getting naked for a crucial scene. (That issue has thankfully been resolved.)

Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on the hit series Game of Thrones. The show's fourth season debuts April sixth.

Now, we come to find out that at least one fan-favorite character won't be appearing in season five at all!

Naturally, spoilers lie ahead:

Kristian Nairn - who plays man of few words Hodor on GoT - revealed in an interview with Australian TV station today that his character won't be featured in the upcoming season. And he might not be the only one:

Winter has come for George R.R. Martin.

The Game of Thrones author took a break from penning the latest novel in this epic over the weekend to film himself accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Declaring "Winter is Coming!" just as the chilly H2O rained down from above, Martin at least have a nice warm pool waiting for him immediately after the wet deed was done.

Watch all the fun, charitable action below:

Other recent celebrities of note to take the Ice Bucket Challenge include Matt Damon, who used toilet water; and Sarah Palin, who actually made us laugh with her version.

The fifth season of Game of Thrones is currently filming in...well, just about all over the freakin' world, and an unfortunate choice of shooting location might end up denying fans a glimpse of Lena Headey's awesome boobs.

Oh, and it could also force writers to eliminate a crucial scene from the books. Allow us to explain (there be spoilers ahead):

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

GoT's King's Landing storyline is currently filming in Dubrovnik, Croatia. One very important scene involves Lena's Queen Cersei doing a sort of medieval walk of shame  -  completely nude - as penance for her wicked ways. 

You might think that the citizens of Dubrovnik would be pretty psyched about the idea of a gorgeous actress strolling their town completely nude.

But apparently the Dubrovnikians don't enjoy things like boobs or happiness because the local church is doing everything in its power to stop the scene from being filmed:

Murphy portrayed the oldest member of the Night’s Watch and commander of the Shadow Tower on the HBO epic.

He was in the middle of shooting Game of Thrones Season 5 when he passed away, with more scenes set to come in the weeks ahead.

It's unknown at this time whether producers will re-cast the role in the wake of the actor's passing, or cut Mallister out of future episodes.

We've seen many unusual characters over the years on Game of Thrones, from frozen members of the undead to giants storming the Night's Watch.

But we've never seen tiny adorable dogs dressed like Game of Thrones characters... until now!

Streaming service Blinkbox has teamed with owners Phillip and Sue Lauer to feature their three pets (Roxy, Blue and Bono) as The Pugs of Westeros.

And the results are as impressive as they are hilarious!

There's pug Tyrion Lannister sitting under his family’s crest; and pug Daeneys Targaryen surrounded by her dragons; and even pug Varys, donning his familiar robe and wearing his familiar expression.

Forget winter. Hilarity is coming, GoT fans! Prepare for cute battle check out the pictures now:

Robb Stark, Ned Stark and Jon Snow
Only one of these three characters is alive on the show, but let's avoid telling that to the pugs.

If you've gotta get canned from one of the most popular TV series in recent memory, you can at least have a sense of humor about it.

That's the lesson we learned from 16-year-old Aimee Richardson and the hilarious Vine video that she uploaded after receiving news that she wouldn't be returning for Game of Thrones, season 5.

We all know GoT kills off characters like it's going out of style, but at least the Ned Starks and Oberyn Martells of Westeros get to go out with cool death scenes. 

Richardson - who plays the heretofore seldom seen Princess Myrcella Baratheon - has been recast simply because producers decided to go in a different direction.

Richardson has been with the series since season one and was probably eagerly anticipating her character's expanded storyline in season five.

In case you haven't heard, Game of Thrones fully dominated Comic Con 2014.

First, there was the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo that went viral for the simple reason that GRRM's face on Emilia Clarke's body is a disturbingly awesome sight.

That was followed by a Game of Thrones cosplay selfie that looks like a Westerosi version of the Sgt. Pepper's cover.

As you might've imagine, a panoramic shot of 50 or so GoT cosplayers featured a bunch of Khaleesis. But what caught out eye was the Arya Stark lookalike in the lower left hand corner. Some even suggested that was the real Maisie Williams!

We now know that it wasn't, but amazingly, Maisie could've easily been looking on as this photo was taken:

The first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman may have dominated the headlines, but truly this year's Comic Con belonged to Game of Thrones.

First, we had George R.R. Martin's Khaleesi photo which proved once and for all that the sick mind behind the Red Wedding actually does have a sense of humor.

That was topped the next day by Martin's weenies vs. boobies discussion, which was every bit as amazing as it sounds.

When they're fondly reflecting on Comic Con 2014, however, we think there's one moment that will leap to the mind of every GoT obsessive. Fortunately, for us, it was caught on camera:

Yes, that's an estimated 47 convention-goers in Westerosi garb. There's a lot to love here, but we think the prize for most convincing cosplay goes to the Arya Stark in the lower left corner.

Seriously, is that actually Maisie Williams?!

There were a lot of interesting moments at Comic Con 2014, held this past weekend in San Diego. We're sure for many fans, just the opportunity to get the first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was worth the price of admission.

But while Gadot's hotness reigned supreme at the Batman vs. Superman panel, it was surely Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin who provided the bulk of this year's highlights. 

First, the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo took the Internet by storm and proved and that the man responsible for Theon Greyjoy having his peen lopped off has a sense of humor after all.

Speaking of wangs, it got even better from there. Check out this interview that Martin gave on the red carpet:

Yes, the revered author responsible for one of the most popular literary works of our time thinks it's important that you know he prefers boobies to weenies.
