In what can only be described as an incredibly smart career move, Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is moving into the realm of generating her own material, as it’s been announced that her new movie project In Darkness is being packaged for sale at the American Film Market, by Xyz Films. With Dormer attached to the lead role, the film boasts the return to the big screen of writer-director Anthony Byrne (Short Order), who has been focusing on directing television drama in recent years.
With apparent, distant echoes of Terence Young’s 1967 film Wait Until Dark, In Darkness features a blind musician who finds herself dragged into the darker corners of London when she hears a brutal murder being committed in a neighbouring property. Though it initially appears that she is very much out of her depth, we soon discover that her pursuit of revenge has a greater »

While speaking to The Wrap at Wednesday's Power Women breakfast, Emilia Clarke revealed that she had to work hard to be taken seriously for her role in Game of Thrones. "The role of Khaleesi is tall and willowy and blonde. I'm short and round and brown," she said. "So they weren't like, She can do that role, easy!" Even after she'd inherited the role from The Tudors' Tamzin Merchant, who was cast in the show's original pilot, Clarke prepared to be play the Mother of Dragons by watching "as many strong women" as possible — Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth most of all. Thanks to "the fact that it's rooted in reality," she says, Blanchett's performance in the 1998 film made her "able to replica a real, strong female leader." In her speech at the event, Clarke said that she can still "see the cracks" of Hollywood sexism opening up and »

Prithee, my lord, loosen our corsets and unbutton our breeches. This week has seen a new wave of period drama steam, from Natalie Dormer's BBC film The Scandalous Lady W to the furore about the 'pornographic' new adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover.
But they're hardly the first shows to bare historical breasts and bottoms. Here's our 9 favourite saucy costume dramas...
Ooh, Mr Darcy. We'll ease you in gently with the BBC's iconic 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries, fondly remembered for the scene in which Colin Firth's dashing hero takes a dip in the Pemberley lake and emerges to greet his unexpected guests, dripping like a dolphin in a wet T-shirt contest.
While it may have shocked your grandma, this is pretty tame stuff.

(Warning! This story may be a little too risqué for some younger reader. Discretion is advised.) Most actors don't discuss their sex scenes in detail. What is on the screen is what you get. But there is always that question that 'arises' when a romantic relationship in a movie or TV seems a little too real. Do the participants ever get a little too excited? Most hard-working thespians will describe any sex scene as uncomfortable and not the place to get aroused, as you are surrounded by tons of crew members on set while situated under very hot lights. It's not too appealing. But Henry Cavill is now one of the few to admit that yes, he did suddenly experience an unwanted physical manifestation of arousal while acting on set. And it was hugely embarrassing.

Even Superman can’t stop certain forces — like nature, as actor Henry Cavill said an on-set erection put him in an awkward position during his early days as an actor. The “Batman v. Superman” star said tensions quickly arose while shooting an intimate scene for Showtime’s “The Tudors,” resulting in a profuse apology to his co-star for the hard working conditions. “It’s only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing,” Cavill told Men’s Fitness. “A girl had to be on top of me, she had spectacular breasts, and I hadn’t rearranged my — stuff into a harmless position. »

Henry Cavill once suffered what we can only imagine to be pretty embarrassing—he got an erection at a really inconvenient time. Although we can't really blame him—he was filming a sex scene—that doesn't take away from his humiliation. Appearing on the September cover of Men's Fitness, the Man of Steel star reveals he had to say his sorry for getting a little turned on while filming a scene for The Tudors. "It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," he admits to the magazine. "A girl had to be on top of me, she had spectacular breasts, and I hadn't rearranged my—stuff into a harmless position. She's basically rubbing herself all over me »
If I had a penny for every time somebody told me that Vikings is nothing more than a poor man’s Game Of Thrones, Ragnar Lothbrok would laying siege to my house to plunder himself a fortune. Penned by historical fiction guru Michael Hirst (who also brought the The Tudors to the screen in all their glory), Vikings has been one of the most enjoyable and consistent shows of the decade so far, with the latest season maxing out Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer with a critic score of 100%.
There are certain similarities between the two shows, but in truth, while History’s maiden voyage into serial drama contains more than its fair share of crazy sex and brutal violence, it has more than enough about it to stand on its own two feet. What really sets it aside from George Rr Martin’s original fantasy is that Vikings is based on real history. »
