In Case You Forgot, Here's the Actor Behind Captain Phasma's Armor

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Disney Star Wars has a history of covering actors up in elaborate makeup, costumes, and CGI until they're unrecognizable. Considering the films take place in outer space and all kinds of alien species, robots, and the like roam around the galaxy, it makes perfect sense. In The Last Jedi alone, viewers can see but not really see Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Lupita N'yongo as Maz Katana, and even Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Slowen-Lo. And what about the chrome-armored Captain Phasma? If you've ever wondered who's inside that suit, that's British actress Gwendoline Christie! Image Source: Getty / David M. Benett Gwendoline got her acting career started through theater in 2006 and has starred in plays such as Cymbeline, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Doctor Faustus. However, she's likely most recognized for what's easily her breakout role - Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones. If you're familiar with the huge fantasy series,

When the Saints (and Sinners) Go Marching In

D. Dominick Lombardi: Saints, Sinners, and the Collective Unconscious (2014-2017) Hampden Gallery University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Ma

Saints, Sinners, and the Collective Unconscious is riveting. Mr. Lombardi is an artist with an intimate understanding of history in regard to religion and popular culture. After careful viewing of the 30 works in the exhibition, I was compelled to research the titles of the works because they seemed to hold the key to unlocking Lombardi’s intentions. I focused on the works in the Saints section of the exhibition because I found their cryptic iconography most intriguing. The research of the saints depicted in Lombardi’s work opened up a new route for me to access the works’ meaning.

Saints Francis of Paola (2016-2017)

Lombardi started this piece (below) in 1964 when he was first getting into painting as a ten-year-old boy. He came back to it fifty years later. He first painted

Preacher season 2 episode 6 review: Sokosha

Louisa Mellor Jul 25, 2017

Preacher continues to delight visually and salute the character's comic book origins in episode six, Sokosha. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Sokosha

The idea of selling one's soul is as old as literature. In 1587, a German chapbook called Historia von D. Johann Fausten by an author named Johann Spies caused a sensation. It was reprinted dozens of times, it inspired one of the first English language plays in the form of The Tragical History Of The Life And Death Of Doctor Faustus, and it was even one of the first movies filmed by Edison Studios, 1900's Faust And Marguerite. Long story short, as long as there has been media of any type, and presumably as long as people have been gathering around fires to tell tales,

The new Oxford edition, which will be released in November, will credit “Doctor Faustus” writer Christopher Marlowe as co-author, the publisher said.

Kit Harington Shaves Beard: 7 People Fans Think Game of Thrones' Jon Snow Looks Like

Jon Snow, is that you?! Kit Harington, who plays the puppy dog-eyed Night's Watch warrior on HBO's Game of Thrones, was recently photographed in London almost clean-shaven, with just hints of his character's signature scruffy mustache and beard, and looked unrecognizable. Harington had sported his thicker facial hair as recently as last week. Filming on the current sixth season of the hit HBO series concluded several months ago. The 29-year-old is currently starring as the title role of Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York's Theatre in London, but had appeared scruffy onstage for weeks. Several fans recently met him and shared selfies with him sporting...

Kit Harington Shaved His Beard, and the Internet Is Not Happy With Him

Do you hear that? It's the sound of one million Twitter users wailing in agony over the fact that Kit Harington shaved off his beard. As the rugged Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, everyone has gotten used to seeing Kit with unruly, curly hair and some serious stubble, but the 29-year-old actor debuted a new look while greeting fans outside his new play, Doctor Faustus, in London on Wednesday. With a clean-shaven face and slicked-back hair, he's nearly unrecognizable. Reactions to his glaring lack of beard included everything from jokes about how "emo" he looks to theories that this could mean something is about to go down on the show with Jon Snow, but for now it's a mystery (or, you know, he simply just shaved because he's a human man and sometimes they do that). Check out Twitter's funniest reactions about the situation here, and then see photos

Kit Harington Makes Some Harsh Statements about Jon Snow’s Fate in Game Of Thrones Season 6

Spoiler alert! Bear in mind that if you haven’t watched season 5 of Game of Thrones and keep reading, you might just come across some spoilers.

The season finale of the show sparked debates among fans regarding the fate of the character who knows the least of them all – Jon Snow. Now speculations might come to an end as Kit Harington had something to say about his character.

In an interview with Digital Spy he shared:

"I was hoping that there would be an outcry of 'why?' and 'oh god, no, no' rather than 'thank god.' That was the right reaction as far as I was concerned! People didn't want me to die, but he's dead. So there you go, everyone has to get used to it."

But is Kit Harington splashing delusions into our eyes and will he, at the end, prove to know nothing just like Snow?

Kit Harington Denies Jon Snow's Resurrection in Game Of Thrones Season 6

The BBC Breakfast Facebook posted video interview with Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harington to discuss his current role in the theatre production of Doctor Faustus in London, England. Naturally the hosts of BBC Breakfast asked Kit some questions about the character of Jon Snow in Game Of Thrones.

At the end of season 5, Jon Snow met his demise and was killed off in the last scene. Rumors spread over the internet that Kit Harington was on set during filming of season 6 of Game Of Thrones and that his character will allegedly be resurrected in season 6 of the HBO fantasy series.

Kit Harington Confirms Jon Snow's Fate in 'Game of Thrones' Season 6

Throughout Game of Thrones' five year run, fans always knew what to expect in the upcoming season, since they could always turn to the next book in author George R.R. Martin's novel series A Song of Fire and Ice. That isn't the case with Season 6, since it hasn't been announced when the author's sixth book, The Winds of Winter, will be published. But we know it won't arrive before the new season. With no new book to turn to for solace, fans have been wondering if Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) death in the Season 5 finale is actually real, or if he will be brought back to life somehow in Season 6. Unfortunately, Kit Harington keeps insisting in an interview with Digital Spy that Jon Snow is really dead, and fans should get used to it.

Game of Thrones' Kit Harington Maintains "Jon Snow Is Dead" (But Really...)

Game of Thrones' Kit Harington Maintains
Kit Harington is sticking to the script. While on BBC Breakfast promoting his turn in Doctor Faustus on the West End, the Game of Thrones star dodged questions about Jon Snow as best he could. "I think anyone who wants to know what happens in season six has to wait until it comes out," Harington said during the interview (video below). "All I can tell you is Jon Snow is dead. He died at the end of last season." Sure, we saw him die. But he was also later spotted on set and he's the star of HBO's Game of Thrones season six promotional materials. So, he could be dead. But he's totally back. Semantics, people! Maisie Williams essentially said the same thing when asked about Jon...

Limitless episode 1 review: Pilot

The latest movie-turned-tv-show is CBS’ Limitless, which wraps slick visuals around a generic, empty centre…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot

The thematic centre of Neil Burger’s 2011 feature Limitless, based on Alan Glynn’s novel The Dark Fields, was what we’d all be willing to sacrifice for knowledge and power. If you were offered a psychotropic devil’s bargain that would make you an uber-capable genius at the cost of your safety, would you take it?

The CBS spin-off show poses no such question. Not in the pilot at least. It doesn’t use its neural-enhancement-drug premise to probe the ethics of an issue that’s recurred in myth for centuries, from Prometheus to the Garden of Eden to Doctor Faustus to a shelf of comic books a mile long. Instead, it uses it to populate network TV with yet another super-powered crime-solver.

Because by the end of the Limitless pilot,

'Agent Carter' Season 2 Villain Is Madame Masque

'Agent Carter' Season 2 Villain Is Madame Masque
We still have several months until Marvel's Agent Carter debuts sometime in midseason on ABC, taking over Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Tuesday 9 Pm timeslot while it goes on hiatus, just like last season. We already know there will be several changes in Season 2, which will be 10 episodes long instead of 8, with the action shifting to Los Angeles. /Film spoke with executive producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess, who revealed that the villain in Marvel's Agent Carter Season 2 will be none other than Whitney Frost, a.k.a. Madame Masque. Here's what Tara Butters had to say about how this villain will be portrayed on the show.

"I think we've changed the look of her a bit obviously. We've made her an actress, which is very Hedy Lamarr. She was a '40s siren actress who was also a scientific genius, so that's part of what we're mining with this character.

A Date With Chris Noth in Hong Kong

A Date With Chris Noth in Hong Kong
Chris Noth and I are inside the China Club, a throwback, members-only restaurant atop a bank in Central Hong Kong. A platter of Peking duck sits between us. The early 1900s-era decor (brass flamingo lamps, rickety wooden fans overhead) has inspired a game: Which period of history would we relive if money and status were no object? Noth goes for biblical, specifically, Galilee during the time of Christ: "I would've liked to meet the guy, maybe sit in with the disciples." I pick ancient Greece, a humble goat-herder, ambling over meadows with my hand-whittled flute, wine flask strapped snugly around my waist. “That’s got to be the most pretentious answer I’ve ever heard,” he scoffs. Noth’s here on vacation, a brief lull between shooting The Good Wife and diving into rehearsals for Doctor Faustus, an Off Broadway production he’ll be starring in at NYC’s Classic

‘Agent Carter’ Showrunners Preview Peggy’s Leadership, ‘Defining’ Moments in Season Finale

‘Agent Carter’ Showrunners Preview Peggy’s Leadership, ‘Defining’ Moments in Season Finale
On last week’s “Agent Carter,” the Ssr lost their leader, Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham); their enemy, Dr. Ivchenko/Fennhoff (aka Marvel comics villain Doctor Faustus, played by Ralph Brown); and one of Howard Stark’s most deadly inventions, Item 17 — a poisonous gas that turns regular people into murderous psychopaths. Suffice it to say, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her allies have their work cut out for them in tonight’s season finale.

Variety spoke to “Agent Carter” showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters ahead of the season one denouement, titled “Valediction,” to find out what’s in store for Peggy and Jarvis (James D’Arcy) when Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) makes his long overdue return, and how Agents Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) will handle working with Peggy now that there’s a power vacuum in the Ssr.
