Game of Thrones cast gossip

We're two weeks away from the premiere. Any salacious tidbits on the cast that you'd like to share? Yes, I know that there was another thread, but thanks to the new search engine, I can't find it.

I've heard that Rose Leslie has MS and Jack Gleeson never wants to act again, any verification?

by Anonymousreply 413January 17, 2020 9:58 PM

I have not heard that about Rose Leslie. Gleason did quit acting to focus on school (think he’s going for a doctorate), people have said this is due to people being unable to separate him from Joffrey but he was saying GOT would be his last role since season 1

Rose Leslie does not have MS. She fundraisers for it, the same way Roger Daltrey fundraises for teen cancer yet is not a teen with cancer; , Orlando bloom fundraises for Ebola care but does not have Ebola , and Ed Sheehan fundraises for homelessness, though he’s not homeless,

Does anyone know why Alfie Allen split from the mother of his daughter last year? Was there someone else involved? I know he has been recently dating an artist but I think he has only known her a few months. He and his ex seemed happy and still together when the child was born, but then it seemed to suddenly break down just a couple of weeks later. He also temporarily turned off comments on his Instagram around that time. She had been living in London with him but has now moved back to LA with the baby. Anyone heard any more about what happened?

by Anonymousreply 5August 19, 2019 1:02 AM

Jack Gleeson did say after he finished on GoT in 2014 that he didn't want to act again. Since then though he has done some theatre in 2015 and 2016 with his own theatre company, and around that time he said that him retiring from acting wasn't as definitive as it had been made to seem. But he hasn't done anything onscreen since GoT and as far as I could find he hasn't acted on stage since the 2015-16 show. He is still listed as a member of the company (it is called Collapsing Horse) but in their most recent production his involvement was described as being as "dramaturg" and he didn't act in it. He still goes to GoT related conventions though and seems happy to talk about the show when asked.

by Anonymousreply 6August 19, 2019 3:14 PM

Was there any consensus on who this 2017 blind item was referencing, about a secret couple in the GoT cast? All the item made clear was that it was not Nikolaj and Lena, and also not Kit and Rose who were public by then (and who the blind item seems to be shading with the comment "Unlike that GOT couple who have used their relationship to promote the series"). The comments on the article at the time seemed split between lots of different possibilities (in contrast to some of the site's other blinds where it is often very obvious who an item is about, and the majority of comments zone in on it very quickly). Any guesses here?

Any personal life gossip on David Benioff or DB Weiss, and which cast members they did/didn't get on with?

by Anonymousreply 8September 3, 2019 12:12 AM

I’m surprised there’s been no mention of how wrecked Nikolaj was at the Emmys yet. Him eating an ice cream in the press room and casually taking the piss out of Weiss and Benioff was hysterical. Also saw a clip of him immediately turning to Gwendoline after GoT won instead of his wife after moving seats so he could sit near her. Was never entirely convinced by the rumours about those two, but Nikolaj was all over her like a rash the other night. They’ve either fucked in the past, are still fucking or he really wants to fuck her.

I'm not sure of her relationship with the cast as a whole, but Sophie gets along with Kit and Alfie. There's a video of she and Kit greeting each other at the Emmys.

As for being close to Maisie, they're a year apart in age. What other female her age did she have to interact with when she began the show? It lucked out that they got on and became best friends.

There’s no way Nikolaj was just drunk. He looked high as fuck. No wonder he got the munchies in the press room. If he’s fucking Gwen, then good for her. I know people who’ve worked with her partner, Giles, and he’s a moody fucker, who apparently told her to stick to what she’s good at, i.e. modelling. If Gwen is tapping that fine piece of Danish ass, I can’t say I blame her. At least he’s always been openly supportive of her acting career.

The problem with Peter wasn’t that he looked so miserable. It’s that people let him go onstage to accept an Emmy looking like he was wearing a merkin on his face.

Emilia let it slip that there was a cast party the night before the Emmys. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at that.

Late to this one, but did it not seem like NCW moving to sit next to Gwen was a complete PR stunt? Like “look at us and our partners, totally getting along, because we’re totally not fucking one another, and make sure you get pictures of it”. Fucking LMAO. Gwen looked so uncomfortable, Giles looked angry and NCW’s wife made it a point to be all over him with the pda so there would be photographic proof. You people aren’t fooling anyone. Also agree that Nikolaj was probably stoned out of his mind.

Speaking of Nikolaj, there was an Emmys blind item that was clearly about him in which a nominated foreign born actor from a major hit show that just ended was acting at a pre-Emmys party that he wished his actress wife had stayed home so he could bask in the spotlight and hit on women. It didn't fit with Jared Harris whose wife is not an actress and Kit's wife wasn't there. Nikolaj's wife is an actress.

"There’s no way Nikolaj was just drunk. He looked high as fuck. No wonder he got the munchies in the press room. If he’s fucking Gwen, then good for her. I know people who’ve worked with her partner, Giles, and he’s a moody fucker, who apparently told her to stick to what she’s good at, i.e. modelling.

Did he really tell her to stick to modeling? About GC's bf, does he ever smile? He always wears the same dour expression.

Why was Nikolaj dressed like a Vegas lounge lizard?

Speaking of GC, why was she dressed like the Pope?

What was the beautiful Carice Van Houten wearing?

Usually, the cast always dressed very well at previous Emmys--very dignified and classy. This year, that was not the case. I can't believe how horribly most of them were dressed. Kit, Maisie, Sophie (even in her prom queen wear) and maybe Alfie were the exceptions. Horrendous.

There was also an Emmys blind item about an actress from "Game of Thrones" who was making out with one of the married producers. Some people thought it referred to Sophie Turner and Weiss who were seen getting cozy together at an after awards party.

And, of course, there were a few obvious Emilia/Kit Emmys blind item. What is the deal with them? Is he still married to Rose Leslie (Ygritte)? And Emilia is very good friends with her?

Dan Weiss has called Sophie one of his favorite people in the world. He watched her grow up. I seriously doubt they're having an affair, and its kind of disturbing people would think it's about them. I don't believe most of those Emmys blinds, anyway.

[quote]What is the deal with them? Is he still married to Rose Leslie (Ygritte)? And Emilia is very good friends with her?

Harington and Emilia Clarke have blinds about them every time there's an awards show they are both at where they hang all over each other. They're obviously very close, but there's a faction of crazy women who want them to be in a romantic relationship and will send in a slew of blinds suggesting they're having an affair every chance they can. It's super creepy.

Yes, he's still married to Leslie, but we'll see how long that lasts. He's currently on a set with Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Gemma Chan. Let's see if he can keep his dick in his pants.

They had a fling - a brief one - in the very early days of the series. The two of them did a feature story and photo shoot with Harry Lloyd for the Evening Standard back then and the journalist noted that they were obviously together though they were evasive when asked about it. It was so early in the show's run and in just the one publication that it went mostly under the radar. It didn't last long at all, and for years afterward they rarely seemed to appear at the same promo events, like they were avoiding each other. That stopped around the time he was with Jenna Coleman, so I guess they got over it.

I don't know too many coke fiends who are laid back and pleasant. The miserable part kind of goes hand in hand. As noted above, there were plenty of people on set who adored him, so it was probably a Jekyll/Hyde merry go round depending on how much coke he'd just gone through. They had some notoriously tough shoots, as well. Hopefully, he'll stay clean and stick to his original personality. He looks great. The cast was obviously very happy to see him so healthy at the Emmys.

R33 Kit (and Richard Madden too) has been repeatedly talked about as someone who is very kind to crew and extras and would hang out with them as one of them rather than shut himself off and act like he was better than them. Crew and extras (especially extras) are often treated pretty badly on sets, and as one of the biggest stars of the show he probably could have got away with treating them like crap, but instead it seems it was the opposite, so it’s no surprise if he was adored. I thought more highly of him after I heard that myself. And as R43 says, it seems his own (unimpeded by substances) personality is a kind one.

If he’d been drinking/under the influence in any way, they’d have been ALL over that, and they’d have said so with glee I’m sure. He had eyes on him all night, they were following him a fair bit to judge by snippets I’ve seen written about his night. Seems like the guy’s working hard to keep it together- it’s working for him so far, hope it lasts for him. He looks the best- and the healthiest- he has in years, and he seemed in a great place at the Emmys.

I thought Gwen looked the best at the Emmys a few years ago when she was wearing a simple off the shoulder black dress. She looked great. (Don't have a link to it but you can find it). You don't need fancy couture to look great unless she was wearing couture for that Emmys but it was such a simple dress. Maybe her boyfriend designed it?

Love Kit. Such a nice guy. The heart and soul of GoT. I hope he doesn't relapse.

by Anonymousreply 48October 7, 2019 1:50 PM

R22 I was sceptical that blind could be about Nikolaj until Emilia mentioned the cast party that they’d had the night before the Emmys. Judging by his wife’s social media, she stayed at home, leaving him free to hit on other women. The blinds at CDAN are notoriously untrustworthy, but it’s rumoured that Enty gets his GoT gossip directly from Amanda Peet, who’s married to Benioff.

Nikolaj is EXACTLY the type to dick around on his wife, but he’s also mindful of his image. The nice guy crap has been managed by his publicists for years, and they’ve more or less made that incident with his manager go away, which was nearly career suicide. He can be exceptionally moody on set though. Like Hugh Laurie levels of moodiness. In fact, Gwen outed him in an interview for being really rude to her when they first met.

Gwen’s relationship with Giles is... unconventional. In the early days of them getting together, it was barely a secret that things were wide open. Hardly that surprising considering the circles they mix in. She’s far more careful these days though. Regarding her and Nikolaj, I’m not sure it’s even up for discussion that they’re ‘close’. They don’t stop talking about each other in interviews, and their body language veers from overly affectionate to strangely guarded.

I’m pleased for Kit if he’s stayed on the wagon.

by Anonymousreply 49October 7, 2019 8:15 PM

"Judging by his wife’s social media, she stayed at home, leaving him free to hit on other women." Well, then it's not him because according to the wording of the blind item, the actor supposedly made it "plain for the world to see" he wished his wife was NOT with him at a pre-Emmys party so he could bask in the spotlight and hit on women. But honestly, I do think the blind item is meant to be him. Whether it's true or not is another matter. Enty's blind items are hit or miss. Some have been uncannily on the mark while others have not been.

Interestingly, about Nikolaj, Enty ran a blind item early in the GoT that they identified as him. It was about a foreign-born actor who could have broken in earlier but he refused to do the casting couch and wanted to stay faithful to his wife. Maybe his publicist planted that.

About his being moody on the set, according to someone on data lounge who posted in previous GoT cast gossip threads (and seemed to be fairly in the know), Nikolaj HATED the writing for his character from Season 4 on. But we know this. But according to this "insider," Nikolaj is full of crap when he publicly says he liked the way his character ended. He didn't. He hated it and couldn't wait to finish up and move on. He's just being political when he says he loved the ending. I think that probably applies to nearly every cast member involved in Season 8 except maybe Iain Glenn, whose character actually had a decent ending that made sense.

Amanda Peet is a rumored leak for Enty?

Is Gwen's bf straight? Doesn't seem like it.

R50 I don’t know how it makes anyone ‘fairly in the know’ to say that NCW hated the writing for his character, when he himself said so repeatedly and openly. The last one I saw was some thing for IMDB where he said he would pester the writers over and over again that the character development doesn’t make sense and they would say “We hear you and we understand you but we don’t care”

which brings another question, R49: if his management is so good at maintaining his good guy image, why don’t they take it to the next level and get him better roles or awards or even some high profile promo like SMA? It seems all he does it European indie stuff, some eco-goodwill-amassadorship and comiccons while at the same time doing thirsty papwalks and things like that AD vid, which all but screams “I want to be a HW star but no one will hire me” and it’s just ... bizarre. I mean, he’s not quite untalented or hard to look at.

I wonder if the legal trouble with the ex-manager has cost him some roles. Someone in another thread said he made a serious mistake firing his manager but he got impatient a few years ago and started making some stupid decisions. The same person claimed what he really wanted was a role in a franchise.

What is SMA?

R52 Nikolaj firing his manager almost certainly hurt him. The circumstances surrounding him getting rid of her were a major red flag for me that, actually, this guy has a huge ego. Basically, he thought he could do her job himself and not pay her the money he was contracted to hand over, going so far as to say he signed a fraudulent visa form and nearly landing himself in deeper shit. (Yes, sweetie, the law applies to you too.) All because he wasn’t happy with the roles she was getting him, and he failed to realise that everybody has to pay their dues before landing an Oscar winner. Being a big fish in a very small pond back in Denmark really didn’t help the attitude.

Speaking of his PR greatest hits, that whole bizarre incident where a fan apparently wrote to his wife to say he’d been caught kissing Cameron ‘Lesbian Tendencies’ Diaz was hysterical. The paps ‘just happened’ to be there to catch them all happily getting along in the park. The big takeaway from that is that his wife is prepared to go along with that crap, so, again, I take the ‘happily married’ schtick with a large grain of salt.

R54 Kit is looking well. Too short for me, but I can see the appeal.

R55 I googled and him firing his manager seems to have happened in 2018. Doesn’t really answer any questions as he wasn’t getting any roles of note even before that. Case in point, Kit Harrington. For all his shortcomings, including being a drunk to the point it disrupted the filming process, and being a truly terrible actor, he still managed to land a franchise role.

Here's some very alleged gossip (based on blind items): Dinklage messed around with the porn actress extras. Many men in the cast and crew took advantage of the local brothel in Belfast. (I believe that). And, this past summer, a GoT actor was caught trying to hire a 16-year-old escort when he was in some European country (which I take is not the UK).

R56, I think he fired his manager earlier than that--around 2015 or 2016. But the manager sued him (and he countersued apparently). And the first legal judgment, which ordered him to pay his manager $2 million in back pay/fees, was rendered in 2018.

[R55] But was NCW really a big fish in Denmark though? Even his Danish filmography is quite mediocre, unless I’m missing something.

It seems more like he wanted a fresh start in Hollywood but it didn’t go as planned. It also seems like he must have some sort of serious financial/legal trouble beyond what’s known as well, since he’s obviously doing so many cash grabs.

Kit was at a Chicago Comic Con last weekend and he was asked about Sophie. He laughed and kidded that she needs to "shush her mouth." But he also said he loves her to bits and that he, Maisie, Isaac and Richard had a sibling-like relationship on set. I know--hardly dishy gossip but I thought I add it here. He said he's a big Harry Potter fan.

Stephen Dillane did not enjoy being on GoT. He didn't understand the show's success. The scene where Stannis burns his daughter on the stake as a sacrifice to the Lord of Light especially bothered me because his own sister died in a fire when she was young.

I know nothing about Gethin Anthony but I did watch that summer series "Aquarius" starring David Duchovny a few years back in which the good-looking tall Anthony was spectacularly miscast as the hideous short troll Charles Manson. What were they thinking?

by Anonymousreply 72October 16, 2019 12:47 AM

R72, there was a lot of gossip about them during the summer of 2014. She implied on her Twitter at the time that a Gawker article about the subject was untrue, but didn't quite issue an outright denial that all the rumours were false, so maybe there was some truth in it. What did the blind item about them say?

by Anonymousreply 73October 16, 2019 12:58 AM

The blind item said the actress was cheating on her long-term boyfriend with a troubled actor she was crazy about and whom she preferred to her regular long-term bf.

by Anonymousreply 75October 16, 2019 1:07 AM

NCW did himself no favors firing his old manager, he might have good PR that it helped the story to be buried but his PR is nowhere in the league of Harington’s. KH’s PR managed to make a cheating story go away and package his rehab as him having trouble letting go of Jon Snow and as a result, he got a Marvel role.

Alfie is messed up. His drug habit is well documented, but that’s hardly surprising for a younger British actor. All the bathrooms in private members clubs in London are covered in a fine layer of white powder. Sophie, Gwen and obviously Kit were all known to be fans of the marching powder too.

I think Kit and Gwen share a publicist, who happens to be very good. That explains why all of his problems went away and why she got so much press for the Emmys while Lena and Nikolaj sort of faded into the background.

R80 Sadly, I think Nikolaj is straight, just very gay friendly. Pedro was drooling over him at Comic Con a few years back and he didn’t seem to mind.

Pedro is almost certainly the GoT cast member outed in blind items for hooking up with guys on dating apps. I kind of loved him and Lena bearding for each other when she wanted to hide who her baby daddy was and the rumours about him first started. You could tell they actually enjoyed each other’s company, unlike 95% of PR relationships. Somebody here must have had him? He’s supposed to be really sweet and well-hung.

I know we’re talking male cast members but, along with Lena, Gwen is bi too. Pre-GoT she was pretty open about dating men and women, and her PR team recently had to do a clean up on her Twitter account when fans dug through old tweets and found her talking about an ex-girlfriend.

Speaking of Gwen, is Giles Deacon, her partner, ill? I saw a photo of him for the first time in a while and he’s gone from tubby to his clothes hanging off him.

R101 Because there’s a big difference between being in your 20s, married and saying you’re bi and being in your 40s, with a ‘partner’ and admitting you swing both ways. Sophie’s team could easily shake that off as a ‘misunderstanding’ should the need arise. It’s not so easy to do that for a middle-aged client, who’s trying to move past androgynous roles and break into something more conventional/another franchise. I’ve noticed recently Gwen has been talking more about Giles after years of refusing to discuss the relationship. I doubt that’s a coincidence now that she’s looking for work. (It’s probably not a coincidence in light of the obvious chemistry with Nikolaj too.)

Ideally, actors would all come out, but the moment you do that, it restricts the scope of the roles you’re going to be considered for, particularly if you want in on the type of franchise that sells well in more conservative markets, such as Asia. Why do you think Richard Madden hasn’t officially come out yet?

In terms of what people were like on set, Vulture interviewed some of the people involved in making The Long Night episode, and one of the "bit players" suggested that some of the younger cast members were quite standoffish. Going by their comments, maybe referring to Maisie and/or Sophie?

[QUOTE]McConnell (Winterfell Woman With Elderly Parents): The younger cast, they’re more conditioned by the professionalism of the directors, so their personalities are all very similar and the way they’d speak was very similar. Whereas Peter [Dinklage] and Conleth Hill, their personalities were already formed.

R125 Not sure I buy that, mainly because I think he’s careful enough not to get himself into a situation like Kit did. That said, he practically admitted he was a manwhore before marriage, and I remember him recounting getting an STI when he was younger early on in GoT’s run. There’s no way he’d have been allowed to tell that story when the show picked up steam, not without his publicist threatening to gut him. I doubt he’s the angel he’d have people believe he is, I just don’t believe he’s stupid either.

There’s a blind from 2016 that mysteriously disappeared from Blind Gossip, but another gossip blog still has it. The general consensus was that the actor was Nikolaj, as he and Peter were the only ‘principal actors’ who were married back then. In terms of who the actress was, because of the ‘beautiful actress’ clue (Brienne the Beauty) and all of the reports from the cast and crew about how close they were getting, it probably was Gwen, even though she wasn’t single back then.

Where on earth did he talk about getting an STI before he got married? Why would he ever recount that? Was his publicist asleep during the interview? I'm sorry but letting something like that drop in an interview is never a good idea--unless you're trying to draw an analogy between a personal incident and a character you're playing. Still, even then....good god. I mean, I never read about American actors talking about STIs they picked up before marriage.

About that blind item, technically Gwen was then and still is single (yes I know she has a long-term bf but they're not married--many would still classify that as being single). So maybe the BI was being picky in that respect. I thought the blind item about them was the one that came out on Blind Gossip about a surprising GoT couple in which one person was single and another wasn't--but that they might come out after the show is finished. But I think that might have referred to the actors who played Tommen and Myrcella although when that BI appeared, those two character had already been killed off and gone.

It was from a GQ interview. The question was about the worst pain he experienced. He talked about a urinary infenction and then moved on to the STI.

Interviewer: I’m glad I’ve managed to avoid requiring too much medical attention to my penis.

She just had a baby, married the father and is now separated from him after being married to him for a year. And then she was battling her ex-husband in a custody suit for a long while. She declared bankruptcy during the first season of GoT. I believe the judge ordered her to pay her ex husband a sum of money; she said she couldn't--she had nothing in her bank account. When the judge brought up her TV show, she said she still hadn't gotten paid for it yet.

Some background to the Lena and Jerome relationship. They first met in the mid 90s when they were both in a UK TV drama called Soldier Soldier, although officially they didn't date until around 2002-3. Before this she had been in a long term relationship with Jason Flemyng, who was also a friend of Jerome's, since the early 90s, and supposedly her relationship with Jerome began while she was still with Jason, who was said to feel very betrayed on both sides by what happened. Jerome gave an interview to a UK tabloid in 2003 where he mentioned the situation and said that he wasn't with Lena right now but that they might be in future. But there were no further reports of them together after that, and Lena married the father of her eldest child a few years later. Not sure what happened between then and GoT, but their working relationship seemed to go severely downhill around 2014, which was when reports began appearing in the press of them being kept away from each other on set.

Nik claims to not drink to excess as his father was an alcoholic and died from it. He said in an interview a couple of years back that he's had a constant dialogue with is daughters about drinking because of their family history and he was worried about the oldest as she was, then, coming of drinking age.

Richard said in an interview earlier this year that he moved to L.A because he was found himself partying too much in London.

Lena has two children with two different husbands. She's not Kate Hudson, okay.

"Nik claims to not drink to excess as his father was an alcoholic and died from it." He's so full of crap. There are photos of him clearly three sheets to the wind at various GoT-related parties. There was a photo of him and Gwen in one of the earlier seasons where they are so visibly drunk that in one pic she is practically holding him up. Then there's a pic of him offering a flask to Gwen during the recent Emmys, where again, he looked three sheets to the wind. Spare me his protestations of good, clean living. I guess his publicist was coaching him. BTW, Scandinavians have a very high rate of alcoholism.

by Anonymousreply 171October 22, 2019 3:06 PM

Perhaps his definition of excess is different from yours, R171. Did he get so drunk that he’d try getting into his apartment through the window breaking a leg in the process and disrupting the filming process? Or did he get into a drunken brawl resulting in a black eye before the audition? Then he still drinks less than some of his castmates.

by Anonymousreply 172October 22, 2019 7:30 PM

R167 Yeah, Gwen was in full sarcasm mode when she said that.

R172 I always got the impression that there was a bit of a distinction between Nikolaj at home and him partying with GoT people on location and at awards shows. He wouldn’t be the first married man to compartmentalise. You’re right though, he’s no Kit, even if he was clearly off his face at the Emmys.

by Anonymousreply 173October 22, 2019 8:57 PM

I get the sense that R172 has a personal grudge against KH, considering some of the comments I've seen here and on other threads. They sound strikingly similar. Kit's told that black eye at McDonalds story dozens of times over the years, and he never mentions being drunk, just that he was defending his date. Did he run over your dog or something? This isn't the first time I've seen digs about him disrupting filming because of his broken ankle. His was one storyline among many that season, I can't imagine his accident put the brakes on all filming while they waited for him to recuperate.

If you know more than you're telling, spill. Otherwise, give the guy some credit for maturing and seeking help. I shudder to think of some of my questionable choices and drunken behavior in the past and am glad I've moved on from that person.

And even as JS his acting is wooden at best. And on top of that, he’s a drunk who cannot handle his drink (the hooker story). All in all, he just doesn’t have any redeeming qualities for all his shortcomings (unless you count something like ‘at least he doesn’t kick puppies’).

I don't see this face as average at all, but okay. He was quite striking in The Death and Life of John F. Donovan even if Dolan fucked up that movie beyond repair. And while he gets a lot of criticism over his acting, I don't think you understand the meaning of the term "wooden" if you think it applies to his performances. I think he often took the character too internal, but I've never seen him as wooden.

Also, the "whining" - you do realize this is often embellished and played up for laughs on chat shows? Sure, some actors complain a lot on set, but I've never heard that about KH. In fact, his directors adore working with him because of his work ethic.

I've always liked NCW, and loved how he grew with the character of Jaime over the years, but yeah, the more interviews I read from him, the less interesting he becomes.

You know who I wish we heard more from? Liam Cunningham. He's such a delight. I'd like to see him work with Fassbender again. He comes across as very laid back.

There are loads of short actors out there who do quite well for themselves. He's not that short. There were a bunch of twitter pics of the recent comic convention in Chicago recently, and surprisingly, many of the people who paid to take pics with him were shorter than him. His wife is shorter than him. His costar/love interest in Thrones was shorter than him. Xavier Dolan is shorter than him. He's the same height as Tom Cruise, James McAvoy, and Ben Stiller. It's not a fucking death sentence. In fact, believe it or not, there are successful working actors [italic]even shorter than him[/italic]. At least he owns his shortness and isn't afraid to make jokes about it. It's a silly thing to fixate on.

What kind of roles, R182? Like most actors, I would imagine he'd hope for one that was interesting. He's playing a superhero next. I mean, look at the guy. That is not squishy and bloated.

You really aren’t helping his case, R186. Yes, there are actors as short as or even shorter than him, but all the actors you listed blow him out of the water in terms of talent and charisma. He can’t do funny like Stiller, he can’t do 99% of what McAvoy is doing, and comparing him to Cruise who, like him or not, may be the last remaining, if faded, Hollywood star is just laughable. Calling his acting “internal,“ well, I guess, it sounds nicer than “constipated.” I highly doubt his superhero gig will be any better than Sophie Turner’s.

CDAN is a mix of publicists trying to make clients look better, fangirls sending in blinds, blatant bullshit and the odd grain of truth. Thing is, the rumour about Amanda Peet being a source for Enty at awards ceremonies and premieres has been a persistent one. That sort of makes sense of the fact that blinds have been leaked about GoT actors over the years, while the showrunners were mostly left alone by the main blind item sites. That’s pretty confusing considering cast, extras and crew have all leaked how unprofessional Dan and David were during shoots, and how they often spent their time with the porn actresses they brought in for brothel scenes. That’s where the real dirt is. Will be interesting to see how Netflix deal with them if they fuck up.

R201 I remember reading that. The guy said that they were way more interested in their Star Wars project while S8 was filming, and would often just leave directors to their own devices when they should have been around as a point of reference. Holy Mother of fucking God, those scripts for the final season are bad, barring the one Bryan Cogman wrote. I mean there were a few red flags in previous seasons that their writing wasn’t up to scratch after they went off book, but, Jesus fucking Christ, there’s no way that those scripts went through more than maybe one rewrite, when they should have gone through several. No wonder there’s a reported rift between D&D and GRRM.

I actually think, if GoT was still mid-run now, the showrunners would have been Me Too’d. It’s not just the way they treated some female cast members, but things included in the scripts like stage directions during sex scenes where they describe Nikolaj displaying ‘the ass that got him on the cover of Men’s Health’. I mean NCW does have a fine ass, but how is that not thinly-veiled sexual harassment in a professional setting?

Actors have said this, too. When Kit was on Colbert, he mentioned that during the 55 nights of filming , they would "swan up" once a week or so and the cast and crew would be filled with poison watching them because everyone was sleep deprived and exhausted. But to be fair, it wasn't their episode to direct. Vince Gilligan didn't sit on every episode shoot for Breaking Bad, either.

GRRM and D&D's rift began when the latter decided to cut the Lady Stoneheart plot from the movie. They publicly said they did this because they didn't want a fine actress like Michelle Fairley to hang out to play a zombie. But in any case, GRRM was miffed as Lady Stonehart was an important plot, certainly to Jaime and Brienne's arcs. By cutting that character out, Jaime was reduced to being nothing more than Cersei's bitch and Brienne did nothing for one season other than stare at a window in Winterfell, looking for Sansa to put out a candle SOS.

The writing for the season 8 scripts was embarrassing. They actually wrote that after Jon kills Dany, he holds her as if it's the Pieta!!!

Until GRRM finishes the books, we will not know how important Lady Stoneheart will be to the overall plot.

In the books, Jaime leaves Cersei out of disgust when he finds out she's been cheating on him with various men, including his own cousin. He goes to the Riverlands and there Brienne, with her cheek bitten off, comes to him to tell him that the Hound has Sansa and won't let her go. It's a trap though as Brienne has been forced by Lady Stoneheart to bring Jaime to her (she blames him for the Red Wedding) or else she'll kill Pod.

Jaime still could have left Cersei early on in the TV show but they chose to remove his agency as a character and make him Cersei's lapdog.

D&D are prats, but they were right to cut the "Lady Stoneheart" shit. It was eye-rollingly unconvincing in the book, and seemed to go nowhere fast, as she picked off the Freys one by one and still had hundreds to go. I've said all along that the later books needed the most ruthless editing conceivable, and this was one of the things they did right. To have LS pick off the Freys one by one would have taken ten seasons, and tied up the BwoB the whole time, instead D&D inventively had Arya take out the whole lot in one chillingly awesome scene! Which was not only a great way to speed up the plot and cut the bullshit, it gave real power to the resurgence of the Starks. Arya went home after that, and when she was reunited with Sansa, they'd gone from little girls to badassess who'd each taken out an enemy clan.

Unfortunately, the success of that ruthless cut seems to have given them all sorts of bad ideas about speeding things up.

by Anonymousreply 215October 26, 2019 9:36 PM

R215 Yeah, the Lady Stoneheart plot is a bit of a mess, but cutting it meant that many of the emotional beats are missing from Jaime’s, Brienne’s and Thoros’ arcs. (It also fed into George’s efforts to show just how much war had fucked over the general population; something which the showrunners never adequately put across.)

I suspected they were throwing Brienne under the bus when they gave a throwaway version of the Biter storyline to The Hound and Arya. Her whole ‘No chance, no choice’ moment from the books is something I would have killed to see on-screen. Generally, I think they gave her the ending they should have given to Sandor (becoming Lord Commander in the Kingsguard), because they decided to kill Jaime late in the day and had bowed to fan pressure to make Cleganebowl happen.

Regardless, it’s really fucking clear that they strayed from any original outlines, and cobbled together scripts at the last minute. Dan and David’s incompetence is going to become legendary. I remember reading about an interview where John Bradley had to remind them that Sam is a point-of-view character in GRRM’s series. They should have known those books inside out, but instead they left Cogman, a relative novice in the industry, with that responsibility.

Not sure why there’s such bafflement expressed repeatedly on here as to how Kit landed the franchise part he did? He’s young enough that they won’t have to worry about him ageing out of the role for years, he’s pretty good-looking, and he’s not half as bad an actor as he gets given a hard time for being. He’s a better actor than some of his material on GOT allowed him to show, and he’ll do a perfectly competent job for them- and that’s all Marvel really need from him. This is a Marvel movie after all, not an Oscar vehicle. Is he the MOST talented actor out there? No, definitely not. But he’s not “truly terrible” either.

And more importantly, one thing he is very good at (and what probably makes him far more suited for this role from Marvel’s point of view than a slightly better actor without this particular skillset) is stage combat and sword fighting. The role is that of a superhero that wields a sword. Kit is coming off training for almost a decade honing that particular skill for GOT, and he’s naturally talented at it too- so good that he did all his own battle scenes, didn’t need a double for them, and indeed, they ended up making Jon Snow better at sword fighting than the character was supposed to be BECAUSE he was that good. That’s a pretty niche skill, and not one too many actors he’d up up against for these parts would probably be able to boast I’d think. I’m not surprised at all Marvel wanted him for the part.

Now, one thing I AM baffled by is D&D’s incredibly dumb interview or panel or whatever they gave. Jesus, what are they doing?! They already did huge damage to GOT’s legacy and their OWN in relation to it- are they actively TRYING to dismantle what’s left of it?! The internet is having an absolute field day with their quotes.

by Anonymousreply 229October 28, 2019 8:16 PM

I agree with you about Kit. He was the perfect Jon Snow and a lot better than people gave him credit for. Is he short? Yes but so effen what. So is Pacino, Cruise, Nicholson and so many top (both present and past) actors. Who cares?!!!

What I gathered from D&D panel discussion at the Austin Film Festival were these takeaways: 1) They had no idea what they were doing--they basically improvised. 2) They wrote for the actors and let the actors redefine the characters 3) They played down the fantasy components of the show to appeal to a wider audience (but I believe that was an HBO directive). 4) They allowed cast and issues with cast to dictate who would be killed off. No surprise that the actor who complained to them about getting killed off when his character is still alive in the books (the one who played Barristan Selmy) they were determined to kill off sooner than expected. Very petty.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have exited their planned Star Wars series over a year since Disney and Lucasfilm first announced they were joining.

"We love Star Wars. When George Lucas built it, he built us too. Getting to talk about Star Wars with him and the current Star Wars team was the thrill of a lifetime, and we will always be indebted to the saga that changed everything. But there are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both Star Wars and our Netflix projects.

They were not famous but from what this person was suggesting, he met them at work or work-related events. They were young, long brown hair, thin and supposedly, not proud of having been with him. (Maybe because he's married and they were guilty?) Take this with a huge grain of salt. Who knows if this is true or not.

R245 Her and Finn did meet up, so make of it what you will. Tbh, Gwen has form for getting freaky with costars. There’s a photo of her kissing Alfie from a GoT premiere a few years back, and then there’s obviously that infamous lap dance she gave Tom Hiddleston. If I remember correctly, there are also gifs from a comic con where it momentarily looks like she and Nikolaj are going to kiss whilst sat next to each other, then they remember they’re actually on-stage in front of thousands of people and pull away.

R246 Who knows about Nikolaj? I do know that he goes for long stretches of time without seeing his wife. Wouldn’t be the first marriage where there’s an “understanding”.

Wonder if she offered to do a backstage lapdance for Tom Hiddelston at a recent performance of "Betrayal?" I hear he's actually very sexy in it (believe it or not).

I'd like to see that pic of her and Alfie. I guess her and her bf have an understanding.

Eh, "House of Dragons" sounds like a lame idea. It's too close in time to the events of "GoT", so everything that happens will seem insignificant compared to the extinction-level threat of the Night's King that we know is coming up in a few generations. Plus the whole Targarya Conquest thing is outlined in GRRM's spin-off book "Fire and Blood", which was a history of the Targaryans from the destruction of Valeria to about a hundred years before the reign of Joffrey, First of His Name.

It's a fun book in its way, reads like a history but with dragons and incest and other fun stuff, but none of the stuff in the book is the kind of epic personal drama that made "GoT" so great. And if they don't go by the book and just make shit up, we geeks will be pissed!

R240, that's really interesting. I do remember some things on his Insta stories then, some of which were deleted before the usual 24 hour period was up. One was a shot where he mentioned seeing that play and was praising it. Another was a shot showing him clearly with Gwen that he took down a very short time later and replaced with a photo just showing the upper half of their faces. Then several hours later he also took down the shot where he mentioned seeing the play. It was also interesting that Gwen's own Instagram didn't mention or show anything about them meeting up as she has usually been more open about her friendship with him in the past. She was one of the cast members who made the most public show of support back in 2017 when he was getting criticised online during the Iron Fist press tour.

I do think he is bi rather than exclusively gay or straight, as I am sure he has been with guys, but there have been a couple of genuine looking girlfriends in the past too. While he and Gwen have been close for a long time, I had never heard rumours about them hooking up, but I did wonder last year if something might possibly have happened, mainly because when she opened a public Instagram she followed almost everyone from the cast except him, even though they were very close back in the days of making GoT, so it seemed like a pointed snub and made me wonder if they had had some hook up that didn't go well. But then they met up at a convention and she began following him, and after that they seemed like they got along as well as ever, so maybe that didn't signify anything in itself.

I could certainly see him as someone bi/fluid who is quite relaxed about hooking up with friends of both genders on a casual basis, as well as having more meaningful relationships with both. I would imagine he and Gwen are more friends with benefits than anything serious though.

Here is the shot that he posted and quickly deleted the night they went to the play.

I’m not sure if I buy that GC and FJ were hooking up not because I think it’s impossible for it to happen but mainly because of how it supposedly happened. Even if she’s a beard/has an open relationship with her partner I think she’d be more discreet. With that said, I won’t accuse anyone of lying either so I guess it’s just one of those things where some will believe it, some won’t and call it a day. I do think it’s interesting though that it seemed like they could have had some sort of “thing” in the past, especially with the whole Instagram thing, I think it’s possible.

About GC and NCW, I think something went down with them. If it was a full blow affair or a one time thing, If it’s over or if it still happens, I don’t know, but I think it’s fairly obvious there’s some attraction there, especially from his side. I also side eye people who behave in weird ways when there’s supposedly nothing to hide from anybody, so the fact they seem to be so close in real life (and it’s quite obvious they are) while trying to maintain an almost cold distance publicly is indication that *something* probably happened, especially when there was a shift in their behavior (going from normally interactions on social media to weird coldness, especially in contrast with their close relationship in real life). And I don’t think real life fans shipping them is the reason. Some fans ship him with LH as well (to the point where they actually tagged his daughters and wife in some weird af posts calling his wife all kinds of names) and that never stopped him from acting normally towards her, either on social media or social events. with GC, is the opposite: an apparently very close bond in real life (to the point where they went out with their married/in a long term relationship colleague to an explicit play just the two of them) while pretending they are mere acquaintances on social media. It’s not as if Instagram and Twitter means everything, but it does pick my attention, this sort of discrepancy.

R259, LOL, that could be the case.

R260, I understand what you mean about the public aspect, I am surprised they would be that blatant considering her public relationship status. While I do think her relationship with Giles is open, and he is as happy with that as she is, they have never said this in public and do seem keen to be perceived as a solid couple, as R261 says they went to various events in NYC together recently. She has also benefited a great deal in the fashion world from being seen as his partner and being able to make connections through him, so it would not be good PR for her to be seen with another guy so openly. Maybe they were joking around rather than making out in a serious way?

R262, I wouldn't be surprised if Gwen and Nikolaj had been involved at some point. As you say, his interactions with her have been quite different to the ones he has had with Lena, despite Lena also playing an onscreen love interest and being a good friend. They also seemed to be trying too hard to claim that filming the scene of Jaime and Brienne hooking up was unpleasant, comments about sending vomit emojis and things like that.

[R262] Oh give me a break. I saw an "explicit" play a few weeks ago with a married friend of mine. Actually, I've seen several plays with him that have had dubious content. But then I don't make out with him during the show. He's an old pal and his wife is not that much of a theater fan.

by Anonymousreply 265October 31, 2019 3:40 AM

[R262] Filming a love/sex scene in front of 50 people, with the director yelling at you both in the background, is never pleasant or easy, even if you're filming the scene with I don't know, Brad Pitt or Chris Hemsworth. It's unpleasant and unnatural, very choreographed and unsexy. I don't know one actor who likes doing it.

I used to be an actor years ago. I worked in theater and on sets (both film and TV). I've acted in love/sex scenes and seen them filmed. They're always awful to shoot particularly if the director is yelling at you both, "Passion! I want to see passion!"

About Nikolaj, I just find him very insincere and egotistical. Most actors are when talking to the press. They have no choice but he seems especially so. All that crap he spouted about how satisfied he was with the way his story arc ended and then gaslighting the fans over their dislike of the finale, saying they would never have been satisfied so of course they're acting out--just irked me.

R262 The theatre thing isn’t a massive deal. What I’ve found to be more telling over recent years is how careful they are with each other on social media, while at the same time they are physically incapable of not talking about each other in interviews. It’s like a fucking compulsion, to the point that other cast members take the piss. Their body language around each other is almost embarrassing as well. I mean you can fake a lot of things, but I’ve seen them BOTH blush when talking about each other.

The snippet from an interview in the link is a trip. Especially Gwen’s facepalm and Nikolaj’s momentary ‘Oh fuck! What have I said’ face. I really think they’ve been on and off for years.

Re Kit's sobriety and people doubting he's actually sober these days- people were tweeting about seeing him out with Angelina Jolie on Monday night in Spain.

(Also, I say he was out with Angelina, others possibly/probably were there too? I don’t know, the tweets were extremely light on any kind of detail and the person tweeting from the restaurant was really only excited about Angelina.

I’m nobody’s PR, and RSP cared a lot more about Angelina than they did Kit!

Also, there’s been different receipts the last couple months about Kit not drinking at various different occasions. Is it impossible to believe he might actually be trying to make a serious go of staying sober? I don’t know the guy, I can't say I KNOW he actually is managing it, but he certainly LOOKS like he’s in a better and healthier place than he’s been in years, and from the bits we’ve heard it seems (at least to me) like he’s sincerely trying.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn NCW wants to sign on to a franchise. I don't think he's "jealous of Kit" but I can definitely see him wanting in on Star Wars, or MCU or anything else that would up his profile. I think his age works against him. Looking at him in Season 1 of GoT and then in Season 8, yeah, I know a lot of it is make up, but a lot of it isn't. I do have to say that he just doesn't seem to "work" on the big screen. Gods ofEgypt was horrific shit. I think I saw him in a Rom Com with Cameron Diaz that was stupid even for a Rom Com. He does really well on TV but not, IMO in movies. Either he picks shitty roles (which is true) or he wasn't meant to be a movie star.

R249 - "Wonder if she offered to do a backstage lapdance for Tom Hiddelston at a recent performance of "Betrayal?" I hear he's actually very sexy in it (believe it or not)."

I saw it on Broadway in September, and given the forgettable performances of the other two cast members (no matter what the blinkered NY TIMES reviewer said about Ashton, and Cox was boring in what is, essentially, a boring part - the disappointing love - the real game is between the cuckholded husband and his wife and traitorous friend), Hiddleston was the most charismatic thing on stage. He does have a peculiar charm of his own, but the role is one of bitterness and irony, not sensuality. I wouldn't have called him "very sexy" in the part by a long shot. Good, yes; clearly the star, yes; but "very sexy"? Not.

No one near me was either making out or getting himself off in the audience when I saw it. The quiet was nearly reverential, unusual these days. After all, how often in this life do you get to sit 30 feet from an Asgardian princeling?

R294 Much like Jack Gleeson, I think Isaac is probably going to take a step back from acting and might even restart his degree. I see others taking a sideway step too. Lena has already moved into directing and Maisie has her app. If Sophie doesn’t stop shovelling shit up her nose then she won’t make 30. Emilia will be fine. She’s not the best actress, but she’s likeable and has a good team around her. Kit might have some longevity if he can keep himself clean. That might be easier said than done if Rose’s family is proving problematic though.

Nikolaj self-sabotages himself with stuff like the shit he pulled with his ex-manager, so I’m not going to be surprised if he falls off the map. It always strikes me that he’s a gifted character actor who was cursed with movie star looks. Maybe ageing out of them will actually benefit him? Conleth was the best fucking actor on the show. He will NEVER be out of work. I don’t think Peter gives a shit. He’s got enough money now to do the odd indie and become virtually anonymous. Gwendoline has the smarts to move into producing or writing, but I get the impression she’s going to move back into her comfort zone of stage work.

Richard Madden, Kit, and Alfie Allen will do well in their careers, so will Maisie and Emilia. Emilia comes across as so likeable on talk shows.

Some of the GoT actors will discover they do much better on TV than in movies. Not all of them are marquee names. The guy no one seems to talk about is Rory McCann. I really hope he does well.

R298, Natalie and her ex were engaged for a long time before they parted ways, the fact that they both seemed disinclined to get married was a huge red flag plus she was pretty open saying the movie they did together led to a lot arguing between them.

Natalie is still with Oakes. She was photographed holding hands with him in LA a few weeks ago.

Speaking of Natalie, someone mentioned Rory earlier. And I have to say, the most hilarious photo of Natalie I've seen was the one with her and Rory at a dinner following the NY premiere of "Game of Thrones" this past April. The shot featured her and Rory having a very animated conversation (complete with gestures) over dinner. It made me sad there were no Margery/Hound scenes because that shot was so funny.

Rory was wonderful and so underrated as The Hound. I read he can be very reclusive when he's not working--preferring to sail off on his boat in solitude.

I agree Isaac probably won't be working a lot in the future. But I also think given what he made on GoT, he probably won't need to work another day in his life. I do think he'll be going back to school. He's mentioned that in interviews. BTW, the photo of him and his girlfriend at the Emmys was so adorable.

I can see Gwendolyn as a James Bond villain/assassin. Her height is a big problem. But she's very intelligent and she'll probably parlay her smarts into working behind the scenes although I agree with the poster who said she'll probably be doing more stage work.

Lastly, you'll kill me. But I think Emilia's romcom film will do very well. It seems very cute and light--perfect for this time of year.

R305 For Emilia’s sake, I hope the movie-going public is kinder to the movie than most reactions I’ve seen so far (the reviews started dropping last night). They’ll have to be in order for your prediction to come true! In fairness I haven’t seen TONS of reactions to it but the ones I’ve seen have been pretty harsh. But regarding it being perfect for this time of year, I don’t know…. SMALL SPOILERS AHEAD: It seems it ISN’T exactly the light and fluffy romance it’s been billing itself as. (Which, honestly, not a huge surprise? Seems most of the internet had figured it out anyway from the time of the first trailer. I know I had. But it might put people off all the same. I know it put me off when I realised, although I like both Emilia and Henry. I guess I’ll probably check it out at some stage. I just know I’m not in the mood for what the story actually is at this time of year.)

R317, the movie is called "Last Christmas". a romance movie during the holidays, typical predictable flick with ice skating and no doubt happy ending...supposed to make you all fuzzy inside. Guys will bring their dates for sure...

Well, it's clear from the trailer that the female lead, Emilia's character has some kind of medical condition and is trying to get back on her feet. Other than that it is probably some predictable sentimental dreck. So what. It's a romCom set during the holidays. Didn't Emilia also have some Rom Com out a couple years ago where some guy confined to a wheelchair fell in love with her? I liked Henry Golding at first. Then I kept seeing him in stuff and now I decided he is too....something. He reminds me of Henry Cavill...not physically, but the fact is he seems like he's a pretty face with no personality. He's...vacant. And unlike Cavill, this Henry seems annoying.

So did anyone see "Last December?" How did it do at the box office?

This is completely unrelated but does anyone remember that outrageous Charles Dance/Lena Headey blind item from a few years ago? The one that talked about two actors who played father and daughter in a show (that was obviously Game of Thrones) and had acted before, were having a hot and heavy May/December romance. The BI also hinted the older man was the father of the younger woman's new baby. Now, we know that the latter isn't true because apparently, Lena's estranged husband was the father. But this was an insane BI. And Dance is known for liking them a whole lot younger.

Joe Dempsie is so cute. What's his deal? Who is he dating? Where in the UK is he from? I notice his accent is NOT the accent he used on GoT. But then, most of the actors save for a few didn't use their own accents, which I found so interesting.

Nikolaj lives with his family full-time in Denmark. He has that part-time house in LA (I believe). He made a pilot for Fox, which has yet to be picked up. He's going to be doing a play at LA's Geffen Playhouse next summer. I think he's in Denmark right now shooting another Danish movie. He's made many Danish movies since GoT wrapped. I'm pretty sure they don't pay half of what he could get in an American production.

He's a Liverpudlian.

Hardcore Cockney accent on that one. Same with Jacob Anderson who played Greyworm.

I think Nikolaj and his wife are still together, but the kids are the main reason for it. There’s no way her not bothering to turn up to anything GoT related for nearly a decade didn’t do irreparable damage to that marriage, especially when it took him away from home for longish periods of time and it’s THE job that paid the mortgage off. I just think they have an arrangement.

Knowing Nikolaj and his unwillingness to part with his money after the debacle with his ex-manager, I can see him being really reticent to divorce in Denmark seen as it’s a given that all of his assets would have to be split down the middle if he files there. That’s what makes the impulse purchase of the house in LA kind of interesting. If he can prove he’s been habitually living there for a while, he can file there. In spite of the ‘community property’ laws in California, it’s generally a bit easier to hide your assets in the US. Also, I vaguely remember reading that there’s a quirk of Danish law that means divorce obtained there isn’t legally recognised abroad.

During Dax Shepherd's podcast Emilia admits there were times she was pressured into nudity on the show but she pushed back. She also said Jason Momoa would stand up for her.

One person Clarke unequivocally praised, however, was Jason Momoa.“He took care of me,” Clarke said. “He really, really—in an environment where I didn’t know I needed to be taken care of.”

“It’s only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that,” Clarke added. “Because Jason had experience; he was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this. He was like [in her goofy “Jason Momoa” voice], ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be, and this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m gonna make sure that that’s the fucking case.’” She recalled moments during filming when Momoa would say things like, “Can we get her a fucking robe? Can we get her a goddamn robe? She’s shivering!” In short? “He was so kind and considerate and cared about me as a human being.”

Have none of you ever watched another series on HBO? A certain amount of nudity was expected, especially for a fantasy show targeted to a nerd fanbase. Niel Marshall, who directed Blackwater and Watchers On The Wall for GoT, directly discussed this several years back. Those of you trying to pin this as another reason to hate Benioff and Weiss really need to stop embarrassing yourselves. Clarke meant it as a harmless anecdote illustrating her inexperience.

Good for him. I hope it works out for him. I'm sure he doesn't want to do any more shit movies like "Another Woman," "Domino" or the "The God of Egypt." UGH.

I've read articles in which has expressed interest in doing more writing and producing. He has already co-written plays/screenplays with the writer friend who's part of this production company. One of these plays about a married couple was done in a staged reading in LA several years ago. Christie played the wife while NCW played the husband. And last year, I believe, another play was done by a Scandinavian theater troupe in NYC.

The movie about the Danish explorer, a series or movie based on a YA novel set in 1980s NYC and the crime podcast sound promising. Whether they will come to fruition, we will see.

Normally, when a big blockbuster show (or film franchise) wraps up, they "back up the awards truck" and shower everyone involved with accolades. In fact, the Hollywood awards-giving bodies have a semi-official policy of holding off on the biggest awards until, until the whole production is finished.

But that pattern isn't working in the favor of "Game of Thrones", because the last season was such a shitshow that they can't possibly shower it with awards now! So all the awards that were held back against the final season will not be given at all.

There was one in which the beau of the GoT actress smacked her around so hard she lost her teeth or had a black eye--something awful like that. I think Natalie might have been identified as the answer to one of these items.

She's now dating her "Venus in Furs" co-star David Oakes. Supposedly, she started seeing him while she was still technically with her ex. He found out about it and kicked her out of their home.

Oh yeah and in addition to being a total cokehead (and snorts meth), Natalie (according to rumors) starves to stay thin (not shocking, I know), has fainted because she starve and drinks like a fish. Again, the latter is not surprising as she's English.

Just seen it on CDAN, this is clearly NCW and Gwendoline, I'm calling it:

#3 - The foreign born three named actor who was most recently seen on that long running pay cable show sleeps with his co-star from that show as often as he can sneak away from his wife or when she is not in LA.

He's been barely using his wedding ring too, some people have noticed it.

About a week ago my best friend (obsessed with GOT) who lives in London swears by she saw NCW and Gwendolyne together on the street. I didn’t pay much attention then, but I did my research and apparently he was indeed in London to watch the Leeds game.

And no wedding ring... interesting....

The plot thickens... another blind from Enty:

The married foreign born three named A-/B+ list mostly television actor has taken his affair with his foreign born former co-star from London to Los Angeles. The pair were spotted together in LA this weekend.

She went to the Critics Choice this weekend (loved her outfit) and he was also spotted in LA. And he was just a few days ago in London... she lives there.
