Game of Thrones actor Gary Wales turns his attention to domestic violence with short film

Game of Thrones had plenty of social messages hidden in plain sight. Though it may not be too obvious, it was a representation of our own society. According to recent research, the fantasy show is very similar to real-world human interactions. That’s the reason why the show was such a big hit, people could relate to the characters. The series was a big platform to showcase the Domestic Abuse women face behind closed doors. RAGE, a short film, will attempt to show what goes on behind closed doors and help real-life victims get the support they need. It is being made by actor Gary Wales, who featured in an episode of Game of Thrones, and filmmaker David Penman.

Rage features a ‘seemingly normal family man’ on a date night with his wife. Things turn nasty when he takes a mix of drugs and booze.

Gary, 25, said: “The whole purpose of this movie is to show people what drugs and alcohol can do, especially behind closed doors, and how it can affect families around the world.

“Every single day there are families going through this situation and no one really knows what happens behind closed doors. You could just be chilling one night and then hear an argument from your neighbours, but you don’t really know what has happened. Anything can happen. Then suddenly the emergency services show up and people wonder.”

“This is a short drama which is going to reflect on what happens behind that closed door,” Gary added. “It’s not really for entertainment purposes… it’s hard to put into words. We are also going to give people resources they can use to learn more about this and to help.”

Game of Thrones star Jessica Henwick teases her new Matrix 4 role

When it comes to action-filled sci-fi futuristic movies, the Matrix series is in its own right a cult classic. The amazing fight sequences and mind-boggling CGI keep the audience hooked each time they watch the series. No wonder ever since its announcement, Matrix 4 has been showing up all over the news. The latest installment of the movie series brings back the iconic heroes from the previous trilogy and also features some new key players. One of the new members to be added is Game of Thrones alum Jessica Yu Li Henwick, famous for playing Nymeria Sand, one of the three Sand Sisters from Dorne. Henwick has dropped some intriguing hints about what her character gets up to in the much-anticipated Matrix 4.

The sequel, which is coming 18 years after the third Matrix movie, stars actress Jessica Henwick in an undisclosed role. While we can only guess at what part she plays in the movie’s events right now. Henwick has revealed to Empire magazine that she managed to secure most of her Matrix wishlist items while on set.

“I grew up thinking Matrix was the coolest thing ever. Bullet-time, the multiple agents, the pills, and the rabbit!” she said. “When I signed on, I said the three things I want are a leather jacket, sunglasses, and some wirework. I got two out of the three – I’ll leave you to guess which ones.”

“I haven’t seen a cut of the film, so I don’t know what’s in it and what isn’t, but I trained every day for months,” she said. “There are a couple of cast members who didn’t have any physical stuff and they were so sad. How can you be in The Matrix and not get to do any of the good stuff?”

Jessica Henwick will also appear alongside her Game of Thrones co-star DeObia Oparei in the upcoming film The Gray man. Are you excited about Matrix 4? Talk to us in the comments below!

Pilou Asbæk and Kristofer Hivju to star in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Norse Gods animated series

Most people around the world are familiar with Norse Mythology, thanks to MCU’s Thor. Now brace yourself for Zack Snyder’s version of the lore. And we are expecting a hell lot of serious action scenes, though in an animated version. What’s even better is the fact two of Game of Thrones alum, Pilou Asbæk and Kristofer Hivju, will be playing major roles in the show.

As announced during Netflix’s Geeked Week, Snyder has called together the Norse gods for his upcoming mythology-inspired animated series. John Noble (Fringe) will voice king of the Norse gods, Odin, Pilou Asbæk will voice thunder god Thor, and Paterson Joseph (Timeless) will voice trickster Loki.

The cast also features Lauren Cohan as Inge, Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) as Sigrid, Stuart Martin (Medici) as Leif. Rahul Kohli (The Haunting of Bly Manor) as Egill, Jamie Clayton (Sense8) as The Seid-Kona, Kristofer Hivju as Andvari. Peter Stormare (American Gods) as Ulfer, Jamie Chung (The Gifted) as Hel, and Corey Stoll (House of Cards) as Hrafnkel.

We can expect a lot of gore and blood, just like the animated series Invincible. Pilou will also be joining fellow Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa on the sets of Aquaman 2.

The world is full of mysteries. Some are beautiful in nature like the working of the universe. Others, grimmer in context, are created by humans. Mostly, these enigmas are cover-ups for misdeeds of the past. They appear to be vastly different from what they usually are, and hence complicate the real story. There are many real-life astounding stories of how criminals have tried to keep their acts under layers of lies and shadows. It takes decades of investigation to get to their roots. Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has joined HBO Max’s adaptation of The Staircase.
