Hollywood and Broadway Remember ‘Maestro’ Sam Shepard: ‘A Renegade Renaissance Man’

31 July 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Oscar-nominated actor Sam Shepard died on Thursday at his home in Kentucky from complications from Als. He was 73.

His friends and collogues from Hollywood and Broadway took to social media to share their admiration for the acclaimed playwright-actor-screenwriter-director and express their grief.

Sam Shepard. Whenever he came on-screen, you knew you were in good hands. A frame from ‘Days of Heaven.’ May he rest in love,” Ava DuVernay tweeted.

For starters, the drinking water in Idris — specifically the lake water — has hallucinogenic properties, which sent Clary down a dangerous spiral of delusion and mistrust. (Exactly what she needed at this juncture, of course.) She also received a chilling warning from a passing angel (which is common in Idris, apparently) that led her to the realization that her actual brother is still alive! »

Paul Wesley on ‘Shadowhunters’: ‘Directing TV Is a Really Incredible Resource’

17 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For eight years, Paul Wesley was best known for his role as the tortured Stefan Salvatore on “The Vampire Diaries.” During his tenure on the long-running CW supernatural drama, Wesley had a few chances to sit in the director’s chair and shape more than just the character he portrayed. Now that “Vampire Diaries” has come to an end, he is able to focus even more on behind-the-camera work. While his production company, Citizen Media, has been developing projects across several networks, he recently got the opportunity to direct an episode of Freeform’s supernatural series “Shadowhunters.”

“I’ve been preparing myself to direct a feature film, and directing television is a really incredible resource,” Wesley tells Variety. “It’s an incredibly well-seasoned machine. You have all of this crew, and all of this talent, and it’s a support system.”

Ahead of his July 17 episode of “Shadowhunters,” Wesley talks to Variety about his transition from being »
