We’ve already seen one look at Mad Men alum Elizabeth Moss back in action for Top of the Lake Season 2, so what of her famous co-stars? Sneak a peek at Nicole Kidman’s grey-haired debut in Top of the Lake: China Girl, which is also now called Top of the Lake: China Girl, apparently.
It’s an even longer road than usual to Game of Thrones Season 7, and production has their work cut out for keeping things under wraps. Recent reports have suggested all manner of fan-favorite crossover, while the latest shows us what might be Daenerys’ new home, and another incredible meeting.
SundanceTV’s Top of the Lake proved so successful in its first season that many were keen to leave the series a standalone, but we’re still glad they didn’t. It’s a long way back to the Top of the Lake in 2017, but take a look at the first Season 2 photo with Mad Men ex Elisabeth Moss right now.
Given all Game of Thrones mysteries and histories slowly converging back toward the series’ end, the HBO drama will inevitably omit certain fan-favorite character’s origins. So it is with Brienne of Tarth, whom George R.R. Martin now confirms to have a major tie to his prequel novellas Tales of Dunk and Egg.
Amid all the blood and nudity, ‘Game of Thrones’ gave us a little romance to root for this season. The last two episodes of Season 6 found Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) making eyes at Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) when she arrived at Castle Black. Though Episode 4 director Daniel Sackheim thought Tormund’s flirtatious glances subtle, they quickly set the internet on fire. There were Brienne and Tormund memes, there were montage videos; it was the beginning of a beautiful warrior relationship (at least if fans had their way).
Full of revelation though the latest Game of Thrones may have been, Tormund and Brienne shippers could only add a few more stolen glances to the newly fan-favorite pairing. That is, until we see the Mean Girls teasing scene Gwendoline Christie reveals was ultimately cut from last night’s “The Door.”
Sunday’s Game of Thrones left plenty to talk about, whether Jon and Sansa’s reunion or Dany’s latest nude firewalk, but updates from the world of Westeros pale in comparison to the real story six seasons in the making: Tormund Giantsbane and Brienne of Tarth. The greatest Game of Thrones couple in living history only had a moment to share their love, but “Book of the Stranger” director Daniel Sackheim is hopeful their wildfire keeps burning.
Game of Thrones whipped fans into a fiery frenzy with its second full trailer for Season 6, revealing several surprise returns and the biggest dragons yet, among other Snow-y secrets. We couldn’t help but dive way deeper into each frame of footage. So what new secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead. New Entertainment Weekly covers reveal the six major heroines of the new season, some looking far better off than we last left them.
The second season of BBC and Sundance’s Top of the Lake was first announced back in 2014, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. We know it’s happening. We know Jane Campion is returning to direct. We know Elisabeth Moss will also return to reprise her role as Detective Robin Griffin. Today finally brings a new update on Top of the Lake Season 2, as Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie has joined the cast of the long-awaited follow-up.
