Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner slams Evangeline Lilly for her stand on coronavirus

The deadly spread of coronavirus has caused most countries to realize the danger at hand and the potential threat it poses to our people. Entire nations are in lockdown, especially after watching the situation in Italy, Iran, and China, while authorities and health officials try to contain COVID-19. For the citizens, social distancing and self-isolation are the keys to fight this viral menace, among other hygiene tips (as advised by WHO).

Celebrities around the world have taken to their social media to advise people to stay indoors and help other people by not coming in contact with them. However, some celebs have taken a different stand and refused to abide by these guidelines. Evangeline Lilly, the Canadian actress popular for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, posted on Instagram last week. She stated that her family was doing things as usual, and not self-isolating. This didn’t go down well with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), who has been asking people to stay safe and not “f*ck around”.

Sophie took to Instagram live and offered her opinion straight up without taking any names. “Here’s the tea. Stay inside. Don’t be fucking stupid! Even if you count your ‘freedom’ over…I don’t know, what is it…like your health! I don’t give a ffffff… about your freedom. You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you by doing this. So, stay inside guys. It’s not cool, and it’s not big, and it’s not clever. And that’s the tea!”

Amidst rising voices that are urging people to not go out without an urgent purpose, Lilly had put out a post on Instagram with a picture of a cup of tea. The caption started off with a hashtag, “#morningtea” and further read, “Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing.” She ended the post with another hashtag, “#businessasusual”. This was met with a lot of criticism online. The actress was called “irresponsible” and “ignorant” while some said that this is “not acceptable”.

The Lost actress had also responded to a few of the comments, defending her stance. “Where we are right now feels a lot too close to Marshall Law for my comfort already, all in the name of a respiratory flu,” she said. Lilly’s comment also revealed that she feels people should be careful during these times so that the authorities don’t grab more power and curb people’s freedoms. She went on to say, “I am also immune-compromised at the moment. I have two young kids. Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices.”

While we totally respect everyone’s freedom of expression, desperate times call for desperate measures. In this case, one person’s freedom could cost someone else’s life. When all across the world, people are trying to fight this pandemic by staying away from each other, we need to practice restraint and ride out this storm together. The virus is here to stay and all we can do right now is prolong the period of infection so that the healthcare system doesn’t have to deal with a huge influx of critical cases all at once.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke jumps out of a plane for 34th birthday

Emilia

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is known for her liveliness and adventurous behaviour. The actress started a new chapter in life as she turned 34 on Friday, 23rd October. She celebrated her birthday in her own ‘Khaleesi’ way.

The Dragon Queen ruled the skies till now riding on her Dragons on the acclaimed TV show Game of Thrones. Though it was not real and was the result of amazing CGI and VFX work done by the crew, she looked majestic in each of the scenes.

Clarke, who played Queen of the Andals and Breaker of Chains Khaleesi Daenerys, took to the sky once again, this time for real. She jumped off an aeroplane to celebrate her 34th birthday in a spine-chilling way.

Emilia wrote her caption as, “What could match the profound existential terror of another birthday? Jumping out of a goddamn plane is what. #whosaysyoucanonlyflydragons? #freeeeeeeeeefaaaalllliiiinnnggggg #myfacialexpressionstellyouallyouneedtoknow #mymothermyhero #birthdaybluestakeapunch Thank you Hinton Sky Diving for the most exhilarating experience of my life!”

Clarke looked terrified and exhilarated in her post. The mother of the dragons proved once again just how brave she is even off the screen. The bold actress battled the after-effects of her brain surgery in secrecy, way back in 2012 while still shooting for the show. She felt exhausted throughout the second season, but she never gave up.

Feel free to send your best wishes to the highly talented actress in the comments below. Happy birthday Emilia!

The year 2020 has been the Red Wedding for everyone around the world. Looking at the current scenario, stepping out of quarantine seems to be a big risk. People are cautious and suspicious of each other, scared of contamination. Under such dire conditions, normal life sounds like a fantasy. Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and husband Joe Jonas are trying hard to give their new-born daughter a normal life.

The young couple went out for a walk with their daughter Willa in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Turner was seen in a T-shirt and black leggings, while Jonas was rocking the buzzcut he dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month while. They were pushing Willa in a black baby carriage.

Both the high-profile parents were keeping it low-key and were wearing properly secured black face masks. Since becoming parents in July 2020, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been focusing more on their baby and less on sharing details of their private life.

Sophie earlier made headlines with an Instagram post, when she brought a prop from Game of Thrones set back home. She welcomed the wooden Throne of Winterfell at her home, which had an intricately carved dire-wolf on it.

Turner and Jonas are trying their best to be good parents for little Willa. Feel free to express your good wishes for their cute family in the comments below!
