Don’t panic – chances are it’s not the Red Priestess, Melisandre (Carice Van Houten), though the site does seem to think that is a possibility. They reckon this could “indicate a new direction for the character, or at the very least a new incarnation,” but it’s much more likely that Liburd is simply playing another worshiper of the Lord Of Light and Van Houten will still return.

After all, some time ago, leaked season 6 scene details made their way online, and one of the exchanges outlined featured Tyrion and Varys meeting a “Red Woman” and discussing the situation in Mereen. There’s a pretty good chance that’ll turn out to be our second Red Priestess. »

According to Deadline, stunning British actress Melanie Liburd (The Grinder, Strike Back, Dracula, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) has joined season 6 of HBO's Game Of Thrones as a character known only as The Red Priestess. Of course, we already have one Red Priestess: the pyromaniac cloths-hater known as Melisandre (Carice Van Houten). Deadline suggests that this might be a "new incarnation" of that character, but it's far more likely that Liburd is simply playing another R'hllor-worshiper. Some leaked script details from a couple of months ago outlined a scene in which Tyrion and Varys converse with a "red woman", so unless that was supposed to be Melisandre and she wasn't named for some reason, mystery solved. Game Of Thrones is currently shooting, and should return next April. »
Despite the name, it has been indicated that Melanie is Not replacing Carice Van Houten in the role of Melisandre. Rather, Liburd is playing a new Red Woman who is based in Mereen.
"Game Of Thrones" is currently filming across multiple locations around Europe ahead of a second-quarter airing next year.

Exclusive: Up-and-coming Brit actress Melanie Liburd has been cast as a Red Priestess in HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Liburd, who has appeared in The Grinder, Strike Back, Dracula and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, is repped by the UK’s Identity Agency Group, Talent Works in the U.S. and Silver Lining Entertainment.

With the rise of streaming services over the past few years has also come a rise in original programming from many of them, with Netflix entering the field with shows such as House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, and Hulu picking up The Mindy Project and collaborating with Jason Reitman for Casual. Amazon has been no stranger to this field, garnering acclaim for their series Transparent, while also debuting Bosch and Hand of God earlier this year. The streaming service isn’t done, however, as they’re set to release their newest series before the year ends.
Titled The Man In The High Castle, the series is an adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name from 1962. It is developed by The X-Files and Strike Back writer Frank Spotnitz, and stars Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, and Rufus Sewell. The first season, which will consist of ten episodes, »

Strike Back might be headed to the big screen. The series was cancelled after five seasons, but Sky is looking to bring back the characters and series, and they have asked Cinemax to join them.
Entertainment Weekly reported on Friday that Left Bank Pictures is in the early talking stages to bring this series to the big screen. If talks are successful, the movie would start production in South America in 2016.
Will the stars of Strike Back return if the project goes forward? It is being reported that Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester would "likely" reprise their roles. Stapleton currently stars on NBC's Blindspot and Winchester is also starring on an NBC series, The Player.
If this project moves forward and is successful at the box office, it could be the start of a Strike Back theatrical franchise. »
You loved it on the small screen. Now, Strike Back is about to explode across cinema screens all over the world! Yes, Cinemax's hit action series is coming back, bigger and better than ever before. Left Bank Pictures is currently in development on a feature film that will continue the story of this cult hit.
The Strike Back movie is still in the early stages. London-based Lbp has struck a deal to develop the action-packed adventure alongside European pay TV giant Sky. And the hope is to have Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton return to reprise their roles once the film is green lit. Producers are currently in talks with Cinemax to join as a partner, and to insure U.S. distribution. As of yet, no domestic deal has been struck.
Once everything falls into place, which is expected to happen soon, Strike Back will shoot in South America throughout »
Strike Back could be coming back - on the big screen.
The action thriller series drew to a close this year after five pulse-pounding seasons, but now a movie version is in the works, reports Entertainment Weekly.
The TV series ended with Scott and Stonebridge surviving one last epic gunfight and retiring from active duty - but it seems the dynamic pair could now be called back into action.
The Strike Back movie would shoot in South America in 2016 and could lead to further films, with producers Left Bank Pictures apparently keen on launching a franchise.
Section 20 may live on to fight another day — and on the big screen.

NBC this Thursday at 10/9c dealt its third new drama of the fall, The Player. Will the Las Vegas-set thriller take your money?
The Player stars Philip Winchester (Strike Back) as Alex Kane, a G-man turned Vegas security expert who is recruited by the calm ‘n’ cool Mr. Johnson aka The Pit Boss (played with great flair by Wesley Snipes) and his colleague Cassandra aka The Dealer (Charity Wakefield) to stop predicted crimes, while the world’s ridiculously wealthy wager on the outcome.
Nudging Alex to take this gig »
I published my review of NBC's "The Player" earlier today. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? If you're a "Strike Back" fan, did this seem a good use of Philip Winchester? (Also, do you still need getting used to him using his real accent?) If you're a Wesley Snipes fan, how did you feel he was deployed? Does the idea of a conspiracy by wealthy people to predict and gamble on crime seem fun, or an unnecessary (and silly) complication to watching Alex Kane kick ass and take names? Did it seem more or less stupid than "Blindspot"? And will you watch again? Have at it. I can see this one as something I watch in the background for a few weeks; if nothing else, I'm curious to see what happens when "Strike Back" director Michael Bassett comes in to shoot one of these. »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.
In 2015, it would be surprising (to say the least) to hear anyone extol NBC as a bastion of creative thinking – but even if its latest dramas are a little generic, action-thriller series The Player feels insultingly recycled. Haphazardly cobbled together from the scraps of infinitely better series, this supposedly high-octane product lacks just about everything you might want from a fall TV viewing selection. An engaging plot? Nope. Enjoyable characters? Zero. Innovative action? Ha.
Instead, what The Player has to offer is hurried, half-rate gunplay, stiff characters played by already less-than-likable actors and a central premise lifted shamelessly from a show that’s still on the air (CBS’ Person of Interest, which is already being encroached upon by Fox’s Minority Report and NBC’s Blindspot – though you could make the argument all of them are doing a pretty shitty job of ripping »

This fall, Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester both find themselves starring in profoundly stupid new shows for NBC. On the one hand, this seems appropriate. The duo spent the past four years playing brothers in arms on Cinemax's "Strike Back," a slick, fun, but at times fairly silly action series that wraps up in a few weeks. "Strike Back" was many things, but smart was rarely among them. (This final season kicked off with a terrorist act that wouldn't have happened if Stapleton and Winchester's boss had literally just said the phrase "He has a bomb in his bag" on one of about seven or eight different occasions.) Still, "Strike Back" was so good in other areas — particularly the rapport between the two leads, and the staging of the various fight and chase scenes they found themselves in constantly — that it was easy to forgive the goofier moments, or the »

Thanks to some delays in production, it's taken a long time for the new season of Strike Back to make it to our TV screens. We already know that it's the final season of the action series on Cinemax so there's no worry about the action series being cancelled. Was it worth the wait? Will it bring great ratings? Stay tuned.
On the final season of Strike Back, Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) of the elite British intelligence undercover unit Section 20 set out to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. They quickly realize that what seems to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. The rest of the cast includes Robson Green, Michelle Lukes, and Milauna Jackson.
Note: This is considered the fifth season in the UK where the series »
