Please don’t forget to watch this very important event airing tonight at 8PM EST in the US and donate if you can. It’s a wonderful cause –

“The funds raised during the Red Nose Day campaign will be given to a variety of nonprofit organizations that transform children’s lives. This year we’ve partnered with twelve amazing organizations working in the US and abroad. The great news is the half the money distributed will be spent right here in the US at projects close to home. The other half will be spent in some of the poorest communities in the world in Africa, Asia and Latin America.”

Very impressive for an Imp!
 

I see practicing with Coldplay – Mark Addy, John Bradley, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Iwan Rheon (is that Philip McGinley as well?) but there might be others (hopefully some of the others with musical abilities like Michiel Huisman, Emilia Clarke, Jerome Flynn, Jacob Anderson, Carice Van Houten, Natalia Tena…wow, I could go on with this cast!)

I thought I had already posted these but I didn’t.

 

 

“It’s all a complete mystery being part of Game of Thrones. I’m reading the script, turning the pages, biting my lip, hoping that the next line doesn’t read: ‘Trystane gets killed’”

 

As each season unfolds, Game of Thrones strays further and further from the treacherous path paved by George R R Martin in A Song of Ice and Fire. With the show having now caught up with the five books written and released thus far, uncertain futures lie ahead. There’s no knowing what fate will befall those living in David Benioff and D. B Weiss’s Westeros, and according to new cast member Toby Sebastian, it’s better not to speculate: “You get the role and you’re like “Hey, I’m going to be in it!” but actually, some of the best characters have been killed off when you were least expecting it! I’m just looking at it as a fantastic opportunity.”

They may be few and far between, but every once and a while a TV show comes along that impacts viewers in such a way that it becomes a cultural phenomenon. Spawning spin-offs, fan fiction, a cult following and conventions, a franchise is born.

 

While Star Trek is often regarded as the most culturally influential TV show of the 20th century, Game of Thrones, given both its record-breaking viewing figures and devoted fan base, might just be the 21st century equivalent. It’s quite singular therefore, that British actor Alexander Siddig has starred in both: after playing Doctor Bashir in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine for seven years in the 90s, this season Siddig has joined the cast of Game of Thrones as Doran Martell, the Prince of Dorne. “I’m a genre TV kid. I’m part of the sci-fi/geek world, which is great, because geeks are taking over right now.”

 

We caught up with Siddig to talk cult shows, Malcolm McDowell and why he’s only recently accepted that some might consider him an actor.

 

You starred on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine for seven years. How do the trekkies compare to the Thrones fans? Do the two worlds compare?

01-barristan-selmy.w529.h352.2x
Pour a cask of Dornish red out for Ser Barristan Selmy, who, in a deviation from the book, was killed by the Sons of the Harpy in a Meereenese alleyway as he came to the rescue of his old pal Grey Worm. Game of Thrones spent four seasons offhandedly referencing Ser Barristan’s combat prowess, and last night’s stand was fitting proof of his skills — by our count, he single-handedly took out at least ten harpies before being cut down himself (watch him in action here). But before his moment of glory, Ser Barristan’s long history of badassery never got the depiction it deserved on GOT; at times, it seemed like his greatest talent was being a one-man encyclopedia of House Targaryen trivia. To honor our fallen hero’s memory, here’s a rundown of the accomplishments that made Ser Barristan the most feared fighter in Westeros.

Alfie Allen on Reek’s Capacity to Feel Love and Whether Theon Will Ever Come Back

Spoilers ahead for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones.

 

After not seeing each other since season one, Theon Greyjoy — now Reek — and Sansa Stark were reunited at last, thanks to Myranda’s meddling. Since the record hasn’t been set straight, Sansa doesn’t know that Theon didn’t actually kill her younger brothers when he captured Winterfell, and he’s not at liberty to tell her. He’s even forced to apologize to her for this, per Ramsay’s orders. Alfie Allen chatted with Vulture about Theon/Reek’s capacity to join in on torture or feel love, missing the Greyjoys, and guesting on “Gay of Thrones.”

 

What was it like to shoot the dysfunctional family-dinner scene?

There was definitely tension in the room, but there were also moments when we just burst out laughing, basically because there was such a disparity between their sort of regality — they’re sitting there being regal, I’m just shivering and listening in the corner to what’s being said, and then you’ve got Sansa, who’s just soaking it all up and trying not to show what’s going on in her head. So there are three very different emotions and moods going on in the room. And to really go to those sort of tense moments, you have to keep it light between the takes. So there were moments when it was really funny to shoot. We just laughed because there were so many different things going on in the room.
