A building doesn't need to have a real-world address to be iconic. Some of the most recognizable locales ever designed are immortalized in the words and images of pop culture. To appreciate these fictional structures in a new way, check out the black-and-white sketches below.

Angie's List, the online business directory, has depicted the architecture of six famous imaginary worlds in pen and paper. In the Marvel Universe collection, you'll find buildings spanning the galaxy, from the Asgardian Palace to Tony Stark's Mansion. Some structures, like Winterfell from Game of Thrones, could theoretically be built in real life, while more whimsical creations, like Howl's Castle from Studio Ghibli, could only exist in the worlds they were made for.

To see the famous locations from these universes, as well as those of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Skyrim, check out the sketches below.

Game of Thrones Prequel Star Naomi Watts Has Never Seen the Original Series

​It's hard to imagine anyone who is not watching Game of Thronesand nearly impossible to think that someone who is about to star in the highly-anticipated spinoff hasn't seen any of the series. But that's apparently the case with ​Naomi Watts who, after being cast in the Thrones prequel series, had to get to work on watching the show.

While speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Watts admitted she's just now getting into the hit HBO series, but is already "beyond" a fan.

"I am late coming to it, I have to say," Watts said. "But that's how I am with lots of things in life. I am bingeing it right now and studying. It's very exciting."

Watts's character's name in the prequel is not known at this time, but according to Variety, she will play "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret."

The prequel series is set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, in the Age of Heroes. Fans have been speculating since it was only ​rumored that Watts was being cast that perhaps she could play an ancestor to the House Lannister, as her physical features match the family in the TV series.

After various reports and rumors claiming Marvel's Loki would be getting his own TV series for the new Disney+ streaming service, Disney CEO Bob Iger has finally confirmed the news.

In an official press release, it was also announced that ​Tom Hiddleston will be reprising his role as "Loki, the god of mischief" for the live-action series.

It was back in September that Variety first reported that both Loki and Scarlet Witch would be getting their own TV series for Disney+, with Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen reprising their respective roles. It was also rumored these series would only be around six to eight episodes apiece, allowing the stars maintain their otherwise busy schedules.

In the same release, Disney ​announced a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story live-action prequel series, starring Diego Luna, who will reprise his role of Cassian Andor.

“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me," Luna said. "I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey."

With its slate of A-list properties, Disney+ is already shaking up the small-screen with its announced original series. The service is not expected to debut until at least late 2019.
