Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie and Charles Dance join Neil Gaiman’s Sandman

Christmas is around the corner, and people are gearing up for the season. Festivals are a great way to take people’s minds off things, especially the way things are going right now. Very few will call the year 2020 a good year. However, the entertainment industry is trying hard to keep the festive spirit up. Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie will lend her voice to a radio adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novella The Sleeper and the Spindle.

BBC Radio 4 is presenting the audio show on December 26. Christie will voice the lead role of a queen who is about to be married. However, the night before the wedding, several dwarves warn her about a terrible sleeping spell. Since she herself fell under such a spell in the past, she feels an obligation to save not just the kingdom, but a certain sleeping princess. She sets off on her epic journey.

The sleeping princess story is inspired by Sleeping Beauty, and the queen is inspired by Snow White. That’s where the comparisons end. Gaiman’s version is much more mature, macabre, and brutal.

Fans can hear it come to life on December 26 from 3-4 p.m. GMT on BBC Radio 4. Christie is famous for playing Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones. She still misses playing the role. Are you excited about the audio novella? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju promotes Audi’s e-car movement

Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju promotes Audi’s e-car movement

Human activities have always posed a threat to the environment. We often tend to hurt the natural balance for our own benefits, whether it’s knowingly or otherwise. This delicate balance can be restored little by little through our collective efforts, no matter how small they are. It can be even as small as changing our vehicle. The fuel emissions caused by using petrol and diesel automobiles are not only dangerous for the environment, but they also cause serious health problems. Game of Thrones celebrities have always been conscious of environmental issues. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was last seen discussing climate-change with Ursula von der Leyen. Now, Kristofer Hivju has joined the cause by promoting Audi’s electric car, the E-Tron series.

Hivju is seen driving an E-Tron variant while singing praises for his country, Norway. Norway is a particular point of pride for Audi. According to Norway’s registration data, the E-Tron (SUV and Sportback) was the best-selling model in 2020, at 9,227 units—beating the Tesla Model 3. That’s more E-Trons than Audi sold in the U.S. in 2020 (7,202, according to Automotive News).

Looking at the current scenario, we can be assured that petrol and diesel vehicles will soon become a thing of the past. Soaring prices and low availability will force people into looking for renewable energy sources. These electric cars are going to be the wheels of tomorrow.

Carice Van Houten’s Indie Czech Drama ‘The Affair’ to be released in the USA on March 5

The world is like a sandbox where you draw out your lives. Each of these artworks represents a different story. These stories reflect various situations in life, from good times to bad. Drama films are often honest presentations of life situations that portray realistic characters in conflict with either themselves, others, or forces of nature. They reflect human beings at their best, their worst, and everything in-between. Julius Savic’s Indie Czech Drama ‘The Affair’ is one such story. The movie stars Hanna Alstorm and Carice van Houten (Melisandre from Game of Thrones). The Affair is finally making an appearance in the US on March 5.

Vertical Entertainment has released an official US trailer for an indie drama from Czechia titled The Affair. The film’s original release title is The Glass Room, and it first opened in theatres in Czechia in 2019, but it is only now getting an official US release. Set in the 1930s in Czechoslovakia before WWII, the film is indeed about an ‘affair’. Liesel Landauer (Alström) and her friend Hana (Houten) are linked by a lifelong relationship. The story revolves around an exceptional house built by the architect Von Abt for Liesel and her husband Bikto.

It seems like Carcie van Houten really moved on from her role of ‘Melisandre’ to more relatable roles. Do watch the movie and tell us how you like Houten’s role in the film!
