“Game of Thrones” cast members were in Los Angeles last week for the SAG Awards, and the actors hinted at the drama coming to Season 4.
“There might be a white dress involved,” Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell (who is betrothed to King Joffrey), told Access Hollywood.
“There might be the small detail of a wedding, so the fans have that to look forward to,” she added.
Out of the Westeros world, a character who was introduced in Season 3 — Missandei — will be someone watchers will get to know better.
“So for Missandei, I guess you see her kind of evolve and she’s growing into her role as Daenerys Targaryen’s first handmaiden and friend and translator,” Nathalie Emmanuel told Access . “She’s very much growing into that role and we get to learn a little bit about her and see the kind of human side to Missandei as opposed to the servant and the dutiful Missandei.”
Alfie Allen, whose character, Theon Greyjoy, had a brutal Season 3, offered just a slight tease at his next adventure.
“Season 4, you’ll just have to wait and see, but there’s definitely a lot more going on in the eyes,” he said.
“Game of Thrones” Season 4 premieres April 6 at 9 PM on HBO.
Following the tragic death of Paul Walker, Universal was left with a dilemma as to how to proceed. Much of his role for Fast and Furious 7 had already been shot, but the film still had a lot of production left. After taking a hiatus following Walker’s death, shooting of the film has resumed and the decision has been to retire Walker’s character. The teaser poster released today implies a parting of the ways elegantly merged with the “7″ in the logo.Universal will not kill off the character. They decided it would be in poor taste and I agree given the nature of Walker’s death, having him die in a film with car crashes galore would be grotesque. They’ll use the footage of his character, Brian O’Connor, that was completed to craft a fitting exit for him. Doubtless, this required rewrites that, along with giving cast and crew time to grieve, necessitated the hiatus in filming.
The Hollywood Reporter states,, “The plan is to “retire the character in a way that the studio hopes will satisfy fans of the franchise.” I have never been a particular fan of the FF films, but there’s no denying their huge fan base and popularity unique in a franchise this many films in without source material from which to draw. Originally scheduled to come out this summer, Fast and Furious 7 will now open on April 10th, 2015.
Today also marks what would have been the 54th birthday for Michael Hutchence, the singer of the Australian new wave/alt rock pioneering band INXS. In addition to his vocal talents for INXS, rumor has it that Oliver Stone was thinking about casting Michael to play the part of Jim Morrison in the movie rendition of The Doors, but due to Michael’s inability to put his Australian accent aside, Mr. Hutchence was passed over for Val Kilmer. A man who truly embodied the rock ‘n roll lifestyle, Mr. Hutchence passed away in 1998. RIP Michael – the world hasn’t been the same without you.
The Game is about to begin again: Prepare for battle.
