Relive Late Diana Rigg's fine performance one last time on BBC drama Black Narcissus

The world lost a great number of jewels from its crown this year. The Red Wedding year took so many lives, people are struggling to keep their hopes alive. The Game of Thrones family lost a mother figure in this tainted year. Dame Diana Rigg, who played Olenna Tyrell on the show, lost her battle with cancer in September.

The veteran actress, famous for her role as the Queen of Thorns, died aged 82. Game of Thrones cast and crew and all her fans around the world were deeply saddened by her demise. The fans have one more chance to relive Diana’s awesome performance on Christmas this year. Dame Diana stars as a nun in the psychological thriller Black Narcissus, alongside Gemma Arterton.

The show is a three-part drama filmed by BBC. It is about a convent of Anglican nuns in the Himalayas who are overcome with sexual desire. The shooting was interrupted by the coronavirus epidemic and subsequent lockdown in March this year.

Based on a novel by Rumer Godden, Black Narcissus was previously made into a film in 1947 starring Deborah Kerr. The erotic thriller was banned in Ireland but is now considered a masterpiece.

The New Year brings with it new hopes and opportunities for everyone around the world. People all over the world are trying to get back on their feet after everything that happened in the Red Wedding year. Many are trying to get a fresh start, including some of Game of Thrones stars. Emilia Clarke, famous for playing Daenerys Targaryen, recently sold off her lavish California home at $4.4 million.

The 0.12-acre property offers privacy behind its walls and mature greenery. It is also conveniently close to the beach and hip shopping and dining around the corner on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Clarke paid $4.6 million for the property in 2016, records show. She put it on the market for just under $5 million in August. It sold just before the end of the year after a price cut in November.

Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal named EW's Entertainer of the year

The year 2020 was tough for people all around the world. In times like these, they need a distraction for momentary relief. That’s where the entertainment industry steps in. The artists work really hard on and off-screen to manage their job as well as their family. Some put up a smile even when they face grave problems in real life, like Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa. Entertainment Weekly recently honoured Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal for his performance on The Mandalorian.

Pascal is one of the actors who was titled Entertainer of The Year, 2020 by Entertainment Weekly. The show Mandalorian kept the audience hooked all through the year, pretty much like how Game of Thrones did for a decade. Moreover, Pedro was a part of both.

It is why I wanted to do this show. Selfishly, I knew [the Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda] was likely to make people fall in love with the show,” Pedro explained to Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation.”

Keeping viewers interested in an act for such a long time is not an easy job. Talk to us and congratulate Pedro over his achievement in the comments below!
