1408-1409-EWcover-APR01-GWEN
EW – Now it’s their turn: On HBO’s Game of Thrones, the show’s powerful female characters are about to take center stage more than ever before. So for this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we go behind the scenes of the Emmy-dominating drama’s ultra-mysterious new season, plus profile six of the show’s leading ladies whose storylines are about to change Westeros forever.

 

“The women are rocking this season — and I’m not just saying that because they’re on your cover,” says HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) always does, but also Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), Arya (Maisie Williams), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Cersei (Lena Headey), Margaery (Natalie Dormer), and other characters too, like Yara (Gemma Whelan). They power this season. It’s organic to the storytelling, yet a radical shift. It’s the women that are the hope that we’re watching as the chess pieces move this season, and it’s very exciting.”

‘Games of Thrones’ Star Joining Elisabeth Moss in ‘Top of the Lake’ Season 2

_elisabeth_moss_gwendoline_christie_split

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Confirming a year of talk and speculation, Elisabeth Moss is officially on board for a second season of Jane Campion’s celebrated Top of the Lake — dubbed Top of the Lake 2: China Girl. Joining the returning star will be Game of Thrones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Gwendoline Christie.

 

“I’m so excited to be back in Australia working with Jane on exploring this wonderful character,” Moss said Monday in a statement on reprising the role of detective Robin Griffin. “I can’t wait for audiences to see where we take Robin’s journey.”

 

The second season moves the action from New Zealand to Australia, picking up four years after the events of the first season when the unidentified body of an Asian girl washes up on to Sydney’s Bondi Beach. The case seems hopeless until Robin discovers that she was not the only victim.

 

Top of the Lake premiered in 2013 to much critical acclaim (and a Golden Globe win and Emmy nomination for Moss), but it was billed as a limited series — something echoed by the creative team. A second season was announced in 2014, but there was little word from writer-director Campion and co-scribe Gerard Lee on what (and who) it might entail.

 

See-Saw Films will again produce the project for BBC Two in co-production with SundanceTV in the U.S. Top of the Lake 2: China Girl is slated to premiere in 2017, with Campion again on board to write with Lee and direct with new co-director Ariel Kleiman.

 

“I am so delighted to be working on Top of the Lake 2,” added Christie. “Jane Campion has been a major creative influence throughout my life and I could not feel more privileged to be working on the next installment of her unique and enthralling drama, alongside the brilliant Elisabeth Moss.”

Ten Tidbits From The ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Documentary

HUFFINGTON POST – At this point, is there anything we don’t know about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”? As far as the new making-of documentary that will appear on the forthcoming DVD/Blu-ray is concerned, not really.

 

The hourlong “Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey” premiered at South by Southwest on Monday, where J.J. Abrams made a surprise appearance to introduce the film. (Abrams was participating in a panel with “The Jinx” director Andrew Jarecki later that afternoon.) As the doc proves, Disney’s intense marketing campaign fed us pretty much everything we could hope to know about the creation of “Episode VII.” And we shouldn’t be surprised, anyway — this is a Disney-sanntioned documentary, so there was no reason to expect a gossipy tell-all. The details of George Lucas selling Lucasfilm and Michael Arndt’s initial script being gutted are glossed over, while Harrison Ford’s on-set injury and the rumors of clashes about the release date aren’t mentioned at all.

 

Still, the movie is ripe with behind-the-scenes footage that will appease “Star Wars” fans, and there are at least a few morsels sprinkled throughout that possibly qualify as new information. And the whole thing is worth watching just to witness Gwendoline Christie’s infectious laugh, which had the SXSW crowd in stitches. Here are 10 other tidbits.

 

1. When Kathleen Kennedy, who’d just taken over for George Lucas as the president of Lucasfilm, first approached J.J. Abrams about directing “The Force Awakens,” Abrams intended to turn down the offer. Having made multiple “Mission: Impossible” and “Star Trek” movies, he felt he’d done enough sequels. It was what became the movie’s central question — where is Luke Skywalker? — and the idea that a new heroine would be the one to search for Luke that convinced Abrams to take on the project.

 

2. Daisy Ridley auditioned with the intense mind-control scene that Rey shares with Kylo Ren.

 

3. In the first version of the script that Oscar Isaac read, Poe Dameron died. But Isaac said he was “sick of dying early on” in the movies he makes, so when Abrams offered him the part, he informed him that Poe now survives. That means we can thank Isaac for all those hopes the Internet once had for a romance between Poe and Finn.

 

4. Simon Pegg was “dying” to be in the movie, but he and Abrams knew it would be too uncanny to have a prominent “Star Trek” actor in a recognizable role. Abrams suggested he provide the voice for a character, but when Pegg visited the London set, they landed on the gruff Jakku junkyard dealer Unkar Plutt instead.
