“There are no black people on ‘Game of Thrones.’ You don’t see one black person in ‘Lord of the Rings,'” Boyega said in a recent interview with GQ. “I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”

Remote Controlled: Nicole Kidman on ‘Big Little Lies’ — ‘I Didn’t Realize How Disturbing It Was Going to Be’
Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” a podcast from Variety featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.
The project began because she and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom would ultimately serve as executive producers, weren’t finding enough compelling, complex roles to play. “This was born of Reese and I feeling frustrated that we weren’t being offered the roles that we wanted,” she says. “We were reading things and they just weren’t enough. So this was born out of not having an opportunity, and we got lucky. We were able to make it happen.”
Kidman says the first sense she got that the series was a success came from watching the episodes with her own husband. “When he started to say, ‘When does the next one get here?' »

BBC Says New ‘Doctor Who’ Actress Will Be Paid Same as Current Star
The first female Doctor will have to continue the fight to preserve hope and light in the universe, but there is one thing she won’t have to struggle for: pay parity with her male predecessor.

In addition, only one-third of stars making over $194,000 (£150,000) per year are female.
Hall added that he was very pleased with the appointment of a female Time Lord.

From there, she was imprisoned within the power-muting pipeline with all the other villains.

‘Marvel’s Inhumans’: 28 Thoughts We Had While Watching ABC’s Nutso New Trailer
As the title indicates, the majority of the series features a species of beings that were created when aliens started genetic tinkering with the human race when they were just still a primitive species. These Inhumans procreated and developed their own society separate from homo sapiens over millennia, and in present day, they’re ruled by the Royal family, which is where the series comes in.
ABC released a brand-new trailer for “Inhumans” at Comic-Con on Thursday, and it’s all kinds of crazy. Take a look:

‘Big Bang Theory’ Stars Talk Sheldon-Amy Finale Proposal at Comic-Con
The season 10 finale of “The Big Bang Theory” provided an emotional moment for the cast and crew.
In a panel Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego, star Kaley Cuoco described the mood on set of the multi-camera comedy when it came time to shoot the episode’s final scene — in which Jim Parsons’ Sheldon Cooper proposed to Mayim Bialik’s Amy. Cuoco said that the entire cast and crew had gathered behind camera to witness the scene.
“I started crying,” Cuoco said.
“We were all crying,” added co-star Kunal Nayyar.
“I came as close to crying as is possible for me,” added fellow co-star Johnny Galecki.
The proposal was the culmination of a long arc for Sheldon and Amy — one that had been slowly building since Bialik joined the cast in 2010.
“To see that be the pinnacle of this season was really cool,” Cuoco said. “We’ve all come such a long way.”
