Game Of Thrones Stars Before Fame

Game of Thrones is the most pirated television in history with Rolling Stone naming it one of the “greatest television shows of all time”. Whether they’re an honorable Stark, a fierce Targaryen, or a cunning Lannister, a mystifying Arryn, an enigmatic Greyjoy, or treacherous Frey, see the stars behind your favorite characters before they appeared in the lands of Westeros and Essos.

Peter Dinklage

Born with achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism, even as a struggling actor, Peter Dinklage turned down many roles in fantasy films out of the fear of being typecast as a magical dwarf or little person for the rest of his career. The American was author George R. R. Martin’s first choice to play Tyrion Lannister in the series.

About the show, Dinklage said, “Game of Thrones is an amazing show, and I have no problem speaking of the virtues of HBO.” The actor has won three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (2011, 2015 and 2018) and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film (2012) for his performance as Tyrion Lannister.

Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister is one of the leading characters in the series. George R. R. Martin, the author of the book series on which the show is based, has stated Tyrion is his favorite character. The son of Tywin Lannister and younger brother of Cersei and Jaime Lannister, Tyrion uses his wit and intellect to overcome the prejudice he faces as a dwarf.

After being abducted and escaping from Catelyn Stark for a crime he did not commit, he is made acting Hand of the King and successfully defends King’s Landing against Stannis Baratheon at the Battle of Blackwater. Following being adjudged guilty for the death of Joffrey Baratheon, despite being guilty, he switches sides and becomes the Hand of the Queen to Daenerys Targaryen. He has appeared in every season of the show.

See where they were before GoT:

Dreamiest TV Wedding Dresses Ever

Put down your bridal magazines and brace yourselves, because we’ve come up with a list of some of the best wedding gowns we’ve seen on TV. Warning! This article may cause any bride-to-be to go a little bit more crazy than usual. Ready?

‘Suits’: Rachel Zane

So maybe Rachel Zane’s wedding dress is not nearly as extravagant as Meghan Markle’s at the royal wedding, but it doesn’t stop Meghan from ending her time on the show in style. This classic V-neck dress was designed by Anne Barge. This dress is the perfect combination of extra and modest.

A Fitting End

The fitted waist and simple top half of the dress, give an elegant and classic look. Whereas the lower half of the dress is covered in floral appliques giving you the ‘its my wedding day’ glow.

If you’re a Suits fan, then you know that this was an appropriate occasion to end off season seven. The marriage of Rachel and Mike Ross warmed our hearts way more than her dress, but that wasn’t too bad to look at either.

3 Vintage Star Pictures That Have Cool Written All Over Them

Looking at old photos of celebrities and stars is a lot of fun and brings back many images of days gone by.  Check these out and take a sentimental journey back in time. You will find some of your favorite stars from the 70s and 80s and others from the 50s. Come join us and just have fun!

These vintage cool photos are food for poster lovers. Each one of these pics can be easily used as a blownup poster that would rock any office or room. This Marilyn picture you see here, is one of many that belong on every person’s bucket list for room posters. It’s on mine, that’s for sure.

1955 Photoshoot With Marilyn And Cute Pup

This photograph was taken by Milton H. Green in 1955 for a Look Magazine’s editorial on Oriental Gowns.  The photograph was shot at his New York studio on March 28, 1955, along with this precious Pekinese puppy.

The staging area is also wonderful!  You can see an embroidered ottoman, a folding dressing screen, and an abundance of cushions.  He posed her dressed in an Oriental-style black robe while snuggling with the puppy.

Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn a gift because she loved animals. The gift was an adorable white fluffy dog named Mafia Honey, or Maf for short.  It was meant as a tongue-in-cheek gesture because of his alleged ties to the mafia!

Freddie Mercury And His Partner Jim Hutton, 1985

The world just was not the same after Freddie Mercury passed away from complications caused by AIDS in 1991.  Jim Hutton lived with Freddie over the last six years of his life.  He was there for Freddie through his illness up to the last day when he passed.

Jim Hutton was a hairdresser in his hometown in County Carlow, Ireland before ever meeting Mercury.  Shortly after they started dating, Hutton lived with Mercury in his Garden Lodge home where they stayed together until Mercury’s death.

Their relationship was long before anyone recognized same-sex marriage.  Although they were never officially married, they both wore wedding bands to show their devotion to each other.  Freddie Mercury died wearing his wedding band.

Stevie Nicks, A True Iconic Bohemian Beauty, 1970s

Gorgeous Stevie Nicks was the lead of Fleetwood Mac and the queen of rock in the 70s.  While Fleetwood Mac was constantly topping the charts, her personal life was a train wreck.

Between spending tons of money and partying, things got quickly out of control.  She said that during the recording of the Rumors album, she would carry a gram of cocaine in her boot.

Even though she tried to fight her cocaine addiction problem, it escalated during the 70s bringing turmoil and stress to the band.  At one point she had a hopeless affair with drummer Mick Fleetwood that was continually fueled by drugs.

In 1986, she got the scare of her life when a surgeon told her she had a very dangerous, large hole in her nose. He warned her that so much as one more hit of cocaine could be her last.

That hole in her nose could cause her brain to hemorrhage. That was enough to convince her to get into rehab.  That was her wake up call!  To the here and now, Fleetwood Mack is back up and on tour!

Golden Globes 2019: “Bohemian Rhapsody” Wins ‘Best Drama’

“Bohemian Rhapsody” won best drama, and its star, Rami Malek, won best actor at the Golden Globes on Sunday night; “Green Book” took home three awards, including best movie, musical or comedy; and Glenn Close won best actress in a drama, an award many expected to go to Lady Gaga.

TV stars Sandra Oh (from BBC America’s “Killing Eve”) and Andy Samberg (NBC’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) delivered capably, albeit unspectacularly, as co-hosts. Overall, the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC lacked the boozy, loosey-goosey tension of its renowned past with a sense of artificially overcompensating a corrective course on diversity and equal rights.

It was a night of major upsets in Los Angeles, where “Green Book”, considered a divisive road movie about race relations, emerged as the biggest winner at the 76th Gold Globe Awards on Sunday, as it took home three trophies, including best comedy. “Bohemian Rhapsody” was named best drama, leaving “A Star Is Born”, the expected front-runner, with only the Globe for best song.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the blockbuster Freddie Mercury biopic, also won two Globes, with Rami Malek beating Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) for best actor. “Thank you for your courage in embracing your true self,” Graham King, a “Bohemian Rhapsody” producer, said of Mercury in collecting the best drama Globe.

“We’re still living in divided times,” said Peter Farrelly, who directed “Green Book”. “This story, when I heard it, gave me hope.” “Green Book” also won best screenplay and best supporting actor, which went to Ahershala Ali, who plays an erudite pianist in the film.

Among other upsets, veteran actress Glenn Close beat out favorite Lady Gaga for best actress. Gaga was expected to win for “A Star Is Born”, however, Close won the gong. A shocked Close, who won for “The Wife”, used the platform to tell women, “We have to find personal fulfillment.” Actresses in the ballroom subsequently jumped to their feet. “We have to follow our dreams.”

Olivia Colman won best actress in a comedy or musical for her work in “The Favourite,” a pitch-black comedy about royal schemers. Best actor in a comedy or musical went to Christian Bale, who portrayed the former vice president Dick Cheney in “Vice”. “Thank you, Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” Bale said in accepting the award.

The best actor in a TV drama award went to Richard Madden, star of Netflix’s action-packed counterterrorism thriller, “Bodyguard”. For TV comedies, Rachel Brosnahan won best actress for Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, and Michael Douglas won best actor for Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method”.

In the television categories, Golden Globes went to FX’s “The Americans” (best drama); Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” (best comedy); and FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (best limited series).

Jeff Bridges collected the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film, and Carol Burnett accepted a new award, named after her, for career achievement in television.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group behind the awards has with a long history of voting idiosyncrasies, perhaps due to the fact it has only 88 people who cast ballots for the awards. The full list of winners can be seen here.

Marvel and DC Characters in Real Life

Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds has had his misses, but he also had his hit in 2016.  He bombed miserably with The Green Lantern as well as his first Deadpool attempt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Deadpool made up for all that, becoming the highest- grossing rated R movie ever.  Guardians of the Galaxy was funny, but Deadpool raised the bar.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

While Green Lantern was a box office flop, Ryan Reynolds can be thankful for the movie for one reason; meeting Blake Lively on set.  In 2012, the couple married and currently, have two daughters.  Blake Lively has also gone on to some box-office smashes like Café Society and The Age of Adaline.

The Celebrities Turning 50 In 2018

Turning 50 is one of life’s biggest milestones. Finally, you’re closer to 100 than you are to0. At this age, many are already parents, some are grandparents, while others have focused to put all their effort into their careers instead. For celebrities, however, age is only a number with many stars sparkling as brightly as they ever have before.

It doesn’t matter what the reason is because frankly, we like our favorite stars to grow old with us regardless of how they choose to preserve (or enhance) their renown looks.

2018 was a year many of our favorite celebrities entered the 50s. From the silver screen to the small screen, icons of the 80s, 90s, 2000s and today all reached the milestone with several surprising entries on this list. With 2019 just around the corner, let us look at the rich and famous who celebrated the big 5-0 this year.

Take for example, Naomi Watts and Will Smith.

You would never know she’s 50, would you? And you’d be more surprised to know that she’ll be taking part in the next Game Of Thrones new project – The prequel series. It’s still a secret so no one knows anything about it.

English actress Naomi Watts turned 50 on 28 September and celebrated the milestone by riding a camel in the Sahara Desert in Morocco. She captioned a photo of the experience, “A milestone and extraordinary moment. So grateful for all my friends and family who shared this experience with me. Memories forever. And thank you to everyone for all my birthday wishes. Huge gratitude… truly overwhelming week.”

The actress began her acting career in Australian films and television series, before moving to the United States where she starred in a series of lesser known films. She came to attention after being cast in the lead role in the 2001 film Mulholland Drive.

The actress has gone onto star in several successful films since, such as The Ring, 21 Grams, I Heart Huckabees, King Kong, Eastern Promises, The International, Fair Game, J. Edgar, and The Impossible.

Keep reading to see who else is half-a-century old:
