Needed: Co-Mod for the Fansite

Now that I’m back at work full time, I need some help. Experience with WordPress preferred (but  if you know how to use a blog, its not hard) and some experience with Coppermine and FTP uploading is required. I have someone who helps on the Tumblr account but some familiarity with Tumblr, Twitter, and FB would be helpful. Access to HQ event photos is a huge bonus! Please email me or comment on this post.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII ADDS ACADEMY AWARD WINNER LUPITA NYONG’O AND GAME OF THRONES’ GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE

June 02, 2014

Lupita Nyong’o joins the recently announced cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. This year, her breakthrough performance in 12 Years a Slave earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Gwendoline Christie, currently starring in the hit television series Game of Thrones as Brienne of Tarth, has also been cast in the production. She can next be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

“I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “It’s thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble taking shape.”

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the Saga Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.

Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.

Raised in the countryside, witty, attracted to the unconventional:  actress Gwendoline Christie is describing Cassandra, the narrator of I Capture the Castle but could almost be describing herself.

 

We’re filming in a gritty Hoxton warehouse, a far cry from the landscape of Game of Thrones.

 

“I feel a connection to Cassandra. Cassandra wants to be a writer. She wants to take a different path and that resonated with me.”

 

“This book is the story of a young girl, Cassandra Mortmain, whose family lives in a dilapidated castle, in a state of genteel poverty. She’s negotiating life, moving from a child into an adult.”

Bri & Pod – Game of Thrones Spinoff

Game of Thrones would easily beat Downton Abbey in a fight

“We’ve been training on Game of Thrones for this kind of big showdown for nearly four years. And secondly, there’s only so much damage you can do with a tea tray”

Gwendoline Christie: Game of Thrones would easily beat Downton Abbey in a fight
Written By

In Game of Thrones, you spend a lot of time in full armour. Would you recommend it?

Hmm, not really. But it does help the character. The whole thing about armour is that you can’t move with any degree of grace or ease in it. It’s very difficult to fight in it – even walking is hard. But if Brienne was a real person, that’s what she’d be having to overcome. It says in the books that at night she sleeps pretty much in armour as well because she’s so fearful of being raped. It’s round the clock.

Last season, you had a fight scene with a real bear. What advice would you give to other actors on working with bears?

Make sure there’s country and western music playing. And don’t cuddle it. Our bear was called Bart and he was a real diva. When he stepped out of his trailer, you had to give him a round of applause. None of the rest of the cast is so demanding.

How are you with a sword?

I’m all right, actually. I was taught fencing at school, but I hadn’t done it extensively. The swords are as real as possible. We have a brilliant fight director called CC Smiff who is not only really diligent about every single aspect, but lots and lots of fun. When he first got me I was a bit of a wuss. He had to get me to butch up a lot. He got me to walk about with a kettlebell to get a sense of weight of the sword.

What’s your desert island box set?

I’m very interested in the new HBO series called Looking. I’m told it’s like a gay Girls, set in San Francisco, and I think it shows HBO tackling things that are very current and necessary. And I wholeheartedly support that. It’s the sort of brave new material that shouldn’t necessarily have to be labelled “brave”.

Do you keep an eye on the TV competition?

I tend to watch films, but I’ve been enjoying House of Cards, and I really want to watch True Detective. I love
a bit of the dark stuff – I enjoy 
American Horror Story.

What are your guilty pleasures?

Strictly, The X Factor, I watch all of those. I even loved Splash! No shame with me. 

If you got the opportunity to take part in one reality contest, which would it be?

The X Factor. I haven’t got a particularly good voice but I like to think I could style it out.

If the cast of Game of Thrones had to take on the cast of Downton Abbey, who would win?

I think that’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? For a start, we’ve been training on Game of Thrones for this kind of big showdown for nearly four years. And secondly, there’s only so much damage you can do with a tea tray. 

Game of Thrones continues on Mondays at 9:00pm on Sky Atlantic
