Check out the trailer of Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) starrer The Flood

The Coronavirus impact can be felt in every sphere of life. While most of the sectors have been shut down owing to the spread, the entertainment industry too has been affected. The production of almost every new series and movies has been halted. There is one good news for fans though, the trailer of Lena Headey a.k.a. Cersei Lannister for the USA audience has been released and you can check it out here!

We had reported about the film sometime back and it looks as exciting as ever. In the movie, Headey is playing the role of Wendy, a hardened immigration officer. It is a huge departure for Headey after playing Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones. This will be the first significant role for Headey since the iconic character in HBO’s blockbuster.

The official synopsis makes for a very intriguing read and the subject of the movie seems very relevant.

Wendy (Lena Headey), a hardened immigration officer in the UK is offered a high-profile asylum case, judged on her ability to quickly & clinically reject applicants. Through her interrogation, she must uncover whether Haile (Ivanno Jeremiah) is lying and has a more sinister reason for seeking asylum. We follow Haile on his perilous 5000 KM journey over oceans, across borders, and amidst the flurry of the Calais Jungle to find solace and safety in the UK. But now he must cross the final hurdle. Based on multiple true stories, The Flood is a thoughtful and timely reflection on the humanity within the refugee crisis.

Immigration was the hottest topic in Europe before Coronavirus swept everything. It is going to be fascinating to see how the story has been shown in the movie.

The Flood also stars Headey’s Game of Thrones co-star Iain Glen a.k.a. Jorah Mormont. The movie hit the cinemas in the UK last year but it is going to be released digitally in the USA on May 1st.

Kerry Ingram re-enacts Shireen’s death on TikTok and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s magazine cover on Instagram

Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon) reenacts Shireen's death on TikTok while Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) posts a magazine cover on Instagram

All of us who have the liberty and luxury of self-isolating are trying to stay calm and centered through this tragedy. Coronavirus is affecting our people badly, but there’s little we can do at this moment. We can help those near to us but the news on the television screens is disturbing. Trying to escape the gloom, every now and then, we get a frivolous urge to wander around and indulge in the activities of our favorite celebrities. Game of Thrones stars are keeping themselves connected to the fans through social media. Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon) recently posted a TikTok video on her twitter account that might remind you of Shireen’s death; while Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) posted a magazine cover he’s on for the April/May edition of 2020. Read on to find out more.

Kerry posted a TikTok video with a GoT reference on twitter; as she felt her followers on TikTok aren’t really familiar with Game of Thrones. “So I made this tik tok but turns out 99% of my followers on there aren’t GoT fans, so I’ll post it here for you guys,” she captioned it.

The video is in keeping with the ongoing trend of making a pose from one of your childhood photos and then showing that particular photo; meanwhile, the track “I’m Just a Kid” by Simple Plan plays in the background. The young actress who melted our hearts in GoT enters into the frame with the wooden stag that Ser Davos had gifted Shireen. She chose Shireen’s screaming pose from the time when she was about to burn to death. It’s not a fun memory to be reminded of, especially during these times of chaos and panic.

Nikolaj, on the other hand, featured on the cover of Haute Living, a lifestyle magazine, for the April/May months’ edition. “Thanks @hauteliving. Had a lot of fun doing this story,” he wrote on the Instagram post.

The shoot took place before the coronavirus lockdowns kicked in. The Danish actor wondered how quickly times have changed and it’s a whole new world now. “We did this shoot only a few months ago. Now it seems like in some parallel universe,” he further wrote. It certainly doesn’t feel like a familiar space anymore since people are facing problems that we couldn’t have imagined.

The cases of infection are still building up rapidly. With more than 4.6 million infected cases and 308,000 deaths, things do not look good. We hope the governments and the media take stock of the people who are suffering without food and shelter. It’s not just coronavirus that kills!

Watch Game of Thrones stars Jacob Anderson and Aidan Gillen shine in music videos

They say if you have the talent make the most of it. Well, some of our favorite actors from Game of Thrones are a talented bunch and they are making the most of it. Did you know Jacob Anderson is also known as Raleigh Ritchie? Also, did you know that Aidan Gillen has been part of a music video? Truth is stranger than fiction my dear friends, so read on to find out more!

As per NME, Anderson a.k.a Grey Worm of Thrones has released a new song called Aristocrats and also gave out the details of his next album Andy. What’s interesting is Anderson has been making music under his monicker, Raleigh Ritchie, and is slowly but surely climbing up the charts. Check out his latest song!

Anderson has been garnering a lot of views for his videos as well, one of his songs has so far fetched 8.4 million views! Check out the video!

Speaking about his latest album, Anderson said:

“Andy’ is a little wink to myself. It’s saying, ‘This is you speaking right now, this is you saying what you have to say.”

He also mentioned that through this song he was trying to explore Britain’s history in his own way. He said:

“British history is complicated, especially as a POC. [H]istory is everything, it’s what we learn from to help us build our future. In school, I didn’t learn much about British history aside from the country’s victories and a version of some of its atrocities. Sometimes it’s a confusing place, and although I love my country, I don’t always feel loved by it.”

Well, we found ‘Ritchie’ really talented and wish him a lot of success with his next outing. Speaking of, remember our tricky ‘Littlefinger’ of Thrones. Well, the amazingly talented Aidan Gillen too has taken part in a music video and it has left us rather inquisitive.

 

As per Evening Express, Gillen stars in a new music video of Irish post-punk band Fontaines DC. Gillen has been a huge fan of their work and so it must have been great to be part of their new video. Quite curiously, Gillen plays the character of a host in the video and we leave it up to you to decide if he succeeded in the new avatar. Check out the video!

Phew! That was interesting, wasn’t it? Who knew all these fabulous actors had so many shades within them? We hope you liked the videos and let’s continue to support them in these turbulent times. We all need something to cling on to don’t we?

Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn thanks key workers for their service during Coronavirus pandemic

Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn thanks key workers for their service during the coronavirus pandemic

All of us are aware that these are difficult times, such as we have never known in our lives. The coronavirus crisis is a threat to humanity, a bit similar to the danger of White Walkers in Game of Thrones. And much like the show, the people in power and in the community have tried to gather all available forces to ward off COVID-19. But our health workers have been frontline soldiers everywhere. It’s their duty, yes! But they’re playing their part with utmost sincerity to protect us from this illness while putting their own lives on the line. Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn (Bronn) has shared a video message to thank key workers of the Pembrokeshire county and across mid and west Wales, who are working each day to save the lives of fellow citizens.

Jerome’s message appeared on the Facebook page of the Hywel Dda Health Board. “Hello, I am Jerome Flynn. I am wanting to send you, all the key workers in Pembrokeshire and across mid and west Wales a short message,” began Jerome. He continued, “It’s hard to express the amount of gratitude myself and all of the community here in Pembrokeshire are feeling for the work you’re doing. It’s hard for us to fully connect with the experiences you are having each day. But we’re getting blasts of them, and I have friends who do work in that sector, so I’m getting some understanding of the sort of days you’re walking into.”

The actor drew a parallel to his own character in Game of Thrones for his current situation. Bronn worked his way up from being a cutthroat to one of the chief knights in Westeros. But owing to his cunning, selfish nature, he did not participate in the great war against the Night King and his army of the dead.

“I feel in a way a little bit like how my character in Game of Thrones felt; when everybody went off to fight the White Walkers and I just hung around, being lazy in King’s Landing. As an actor, I really wanted to be there in the action with everybody, you know, kind of saving the world. And in truth, right now, it certainly feels like you’re playing that role for all of us. And I can’t honestly say that I want to be there with you, because it feels so intense,” he said.

The loss of lives in this battle has been immense for real. Something that many a time, could be demoralizing for the health workers. But Jerome tried to see the positive side of their work.

“I imagine it could be easy to judge yourself, as perhaps at the end of the day, not having succeeded, if another life is lost. But from where we’re standing and from where I’m standing, I wanted to let you know that you succeed every day. Your success is full every day; just turning up and being present for each individual soul, for letting them know that their lives are significant…Especially at a time when their loved ones can’t be present for them…That’s the success for me.

That’s where the true value of your work is being felt. Because otherwise, it’s clear you’re doing everything you can to save their lives. But it’s your presence there with them, that I really, really value; and your courage to go in every day is deeply touching. So, thank you everyone, and keep up the amazing work. It’s so appreciated. God bless you, bye.”

Jerome also shared a message for the workers at the Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust recently. They are serving people in South-Eastern England across Kent, East Sussex, and London. He termed the service of health workers as “extraordinary days of your lives, something that you would never forget.” Kent is Jerome’s home county and apparently, his parents, mother, and step-father live there; both of whom are in the vulnerable age group. Jerome, thus, extended his thanks, “I am truly grateful to know that you guys are there, doing what you’re doing.”

Many of the other Game of Thrones actors have done their share to aid the health workers. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and her husband, Joe Jonas had donated meals to the staff of a Los Angeles hospital. Isaac Hempstead Wright’s (Bran Stark) step-father helped key workers by providing them PPEs.

We appreciate everyone’s contributions. Whatever they may be, they are building us into a coherent unit during these grim, isolating times.

What are your thoughts? We hope you’re still practicing social distancing and washing your hands regularly. The virus is here to stay, and it’s important you don’t lower your guard anytime soon. Talk to us in the comments below.
