Lena Headey needs no henchman to do her bidding; the “Game of Thrones” actress made her feelings on Louis C.K. very clear over the weekend, calling lies on his apology.

Why Cersei and Bronn Never Appear in the Same Scene on Game of Thrones

It’s a shame when a relationship can’t work out, but when it becomes something of a distraction since the two individuals are actually Working On The Same Show, then one might think it would be a problem. Think really hard about this one. Have you ever noticed Bronn and Cersei in the same shot together? Ever seen them in the same vicinity where they had to stand side by side or at least across the same room? Nope, and you never will. Both Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Lena Headey (Cersei) cannot stand one another. They were in a committed relationship

Doctor Who, and the casting of soap stars in the show

Mark Harrison Oct 24, 2017

As Doctor Who series 11 adds a trio of soap opera stars to its cast. And it makes sense...

What do Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh have in common? Other than the fact that they're all joining Jodie Whittaker's Doctor as part of the regular cast of Doctor Who's next series, they've all acted in soap operas. Even 12 years since the show was revived by a former Coronation Street writer, that still makes some fans nervous.

Whatever your thoughts on Corrie, EastEnders and other serial dramas (to give them their proper name – the nickname comes from an outdated observation about soap companies sponsoring many of them), they're the best, most relevant training ground for young actors in British television. It's also more relevant to the experience of working on Doctor Who than you might necessarily expect.

Eliza Taylor Stars in First Trailer for Teen Crime Thriller Film 'Thumper'

"Do you trust her?" The Orchard has debuted an official trailer for an indie crime thriller titled Thumper, from writer/director Jordan Ross. This stars Eliza Taylor (seen on "The 100") as a new student at a drug-ridden high school in an impoverished California town. She befriends a local drug dealer, but ends up way too deep in the local drug ring. The cast includes Daniel Webber, Pablo Schreiber, Lena Headey, Ben Feldman, and Brigitte Kali. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival but didn't emerge with much buzz. There's some impressive cinematography in this trailer, but the rest of it seems like another typical small-town crime thriller, once again about teens caught up in the craziness unable to escape. Check it out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jordan Ross' Thumper, direct from YouTube: Troubled new girl Kat Carter (Eliza Taylor) struggles to fit in with her

Pablo Schreiber has played morally questionable characters on American Gods and Orange Is the New Black, but you've never seen him quite like this. In Thumper, he plays a ruthless drug dealer who rules over a low income neighborhood and Et has the movie's official poster, with Schreiber front and center.

"I'm really interested in the extremes of human behavior. Characters that behave in ways that I don't agree with or can't really get behind," he told Et of what drew him to the film. "The process for me is trying to understand what drives that...and, in doing so, it's practicing a form of empathy and trying to understand people from very different circumstances."
