Game of Thrones Star Features in Dr Who

Who likes Dr Who? I do!!

Imagine being a 17 year old actor and having roles in such popular shows as Game of Thrones and Dr Who.  It would be an incredible dream come true!  I would be beside myself with excitement!!

The BBC reports:

Having landed back in the UK fresh from touring the US, today Maisie Williams sets foot on the Doctor Who TARDIS to take up a guest role in the hit BBC One show that returns to our screens this Autumn.

Maisie has already found global fame and is renowned for her role as Arya Stark in the international fantasy drama series Game of Thrones. She also starred in the one-off docu-dramaCyberbully and was cast as one of the leads of Carol Morley’s drama The Falling. As well as beinga three-time Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee, in February of this year she was awarded with a Shooting Star Award at the Berlin Film Festival.

On her first day on set Maisie Williams said, “I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British Culture. I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we’ll be shooting not too far from my home town.”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, added, “We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”

Bursting with drama, wit and heart, the show continues filming with two period adventures – ‘The Girl Who Died’ written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and ‘The Woman Who Lived’ by Catherine Tregenna. Starring Peter Capaldi (The Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), the duo continue to time travel through epic adventures Directed by Ed Bazalgette (BBC One’s 18th Century drama Poldark).

Comedian and actor Rufus Hound who recently appeared in the series Cucumber also joins the guest cast alongside BBC Three’s Siblings and CBBC’s Horrible Histories star Tom Stourton, Ariyon Bakare, Simon Lipkin, Ian Conningham, Murray McArthur, Barnaby Kay, John Voce, and Struan Rodger.

Doctor Who has had a decade of success since its re-launch and is one of BBC One’s most highly regarded dramas. The much-loved brand is already a phenomenon delivering on a global scale, with the last series’ (series 8) consolidated average at 7.4 million.

The BBC Cymru Wales produced drama will return to BBC One this Autumn with further casting to be announced in due course.

The Mountain is Strong!

I found the following interesting piece about the Mountain, from Game of Thrones. Or, as I like to think of him, as the only guy that the Hound is actually scared of.

This guy is HUGE and STRONG, as Uproxx reports:

Terrifying mobile sculpture Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known as the Mountain from Game of Thrones, best known as TV’s most famous eye-squisher, won Europe’s Strongest Man Contest in 2014. But he’s also the strongest man…in a millennium. During this weekend’s World’s Strongest Viking competition, Björnsson “[broke] a record that has been part of history for 1,000 years,” for as they foretold in the ancient scrolls, I KILLED THE RECORD. I SMASHED ITS HEAD IN.

“The record has been described in the Icelandic Sagas,” said Ilkka Kinnunen who reported on the event for Iron Mind. “The legend of the Icelander Ormur Stórólfsson goes that he walked three steps with a monster wooden log which weighed over 650 kg and was 10 m long. It took 50 mere mortals to help him place it on his back. After he took his third step, his back broke under the enormous pressure and he was never the same after that.” (Via)

The man they call Thor carried the same monster log for five steps. Björnsson will next compete in World’s Strongest Man, so good luck, mere mortals foolish enough to challenge this guy.

Here is the amazing video of the feat (and I’m glad to see the safety features in place):

The legend of the Icelander Orm Storulfsson says that he walked three steps with this MONSTER WOODEN LOG which weighs over 600kg’s/1320lbs! It took 50 mere mortals to help him placing it on his back! After he took his third step his back broke under the enormous pressure and he was never the same after that! Well today my friends I made history!! As well as winning the title of The World’s Strongest Viking for the second time in a row I carried this MONSTER LOG 5 steps! My back held up fine!! As I’m on my way to my ultimate goal to win The World’s Strongest Man! NOTHING CAN STOP ME!! NOTHING CAN BREAK ME!!

Maisie Williams on Vine

Maisie Williams has a growing online presence and a growing group of (mostly) young fans.

Here’s a collection of Maisie having fun, being silly, and being real.

(And if there are any of you who are as behind the times as me, and don’t know what vining is, don’t worry. I had to google it. Sad but true. I am not a teenager and obviously need someone to help me be cool :/ )

Enjoy 🙂

20 Awesomely Weird Facts About the Game of Thrones Cast

Don’t you love the fact that actors are, well, actors? When you see them in an awesome role, and fall in love with them as that character, it can be disconcerting, or just plain hilarious, to see them in other roles.

Especially if those roles are poles apart.

We start this video with Lord Tywin in a stretchy mini skirt, but the laughs don’t stop there.

Can you imagine Bronn doing doo-wop?

Which significant character is played by an actor with a background as in porn?

Robert Baratheon going full monty?

Stars related to Charlie Chaplin? Charles Dickens?

You HAVE to watch this video!!
