We already knew that season 5 of HBO's Game Of Thrones would employ flashbacks for the first time, and since an actress has been cast as young Cersei, we had a pretty good idea what those flashbacks would entail. Now we're certain of it, as Jodhi May (Last of the Mohicans, Strike Back) has been bast as Maggy the Frog -- the hideous old witch that gives Cersei her troubling visions of the future.

There's also a new trailer for the upcoming Blu-ray release of season 4 featuring a song from Hozier, which »

Green said that he continues to enjoy filming action scenes, despite hitting the age milestone last year.
"The action scenes are fine - [with] any series you've got to look after yourself," he explained.

Robson Green has admitted that he is "living the dream" with his latest series Ultimate Catch.
The Grantchester and Strike Back star returns to Quest this week for his latest fishing adventure, in which he travels around the world in search of some of the most sought-after fish, such as the Golden Dorado in Bolivia.
He told Digital Spy: "So many people and professional anglers come up to me and say, 'You are the luckiest actor on the planet', and I just reply and say, 'I'm a hard working actor'. I do a lot of prep and my father used to say, 'The harder you work the luckier you get', and 'Get a job you love, then you never have to work again in your life'.
"And I am a very hard-working actor, but yes I am the luckiest angler on the planet. I really am 100%, from the heart, »

Holding court at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday, Cinemax threw Strike Back fans a bone by narrowing the premiere date for the delayed fourth and final season down to “summer 2015.”
The high-octane action-drama typically fires off its new episodes in the summer, but production on Season 4 was paused for six months when series star Sullivan Stapleton, who plays Sgt. Damien Scott, sustained a serious, injury off-set in February 2014.
The pay cabler also released the logline for the final season, including casting details:
