War is coming in 'Game of Thrones' video game trailer


It seems no one can catch a break in Game of Thrones, whether on the battlefield or in the throne room of King’s Landing. And now fans of the HBO series will have a chance to join the fray among the Lannisters, Starks, and Freys.


Here's which TV characters -- and original characters -- appear in the 'Game of Thrones' video game


While Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones video game will focus on an entirely new house of Westeros—one not glimpsed in HBO’s hit—a few familiar and fresh faces will be popping up on the new adventure.


Natalie Dormer reveals the 'diva' of 'Game of Thrones' cast in Reddit AMA

Natalie Dormer has had a busy few years in Hollywoodincluding playing Cressida in The Hunger Games, Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones, Moriarty on Elementary and with that comes plenty of stories to tell. In a Reddit AMA on Monday, she regaled her fans with some of them, and even outed one of her Game of Thrones co-stars as a major diva.

Here’s what she revealed:


Natalie Dormer, Billy Eichner talk 'One to Watch' status at 'People' event

In celebration of its Oct. 20 “One to Watch” issue, People honored 40 rising starsincluding Natalie Dormer, Billy Eichner, Danielle Brooks, Sam Heughan, Karla Souza, Ben Feldman, Gina Rodriguez, Travis Fimmel, Kiernan Shipka, and Meghan Trainor—on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

“It’s great to get the memo,” Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones, told EW of her “One to Watch”status. “The response that Game of Thrones has had, for all of us as a cast, has just been extraordinary.” Next up for the British actress is tackling Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, a role that she had to shave half of her head, which she called “a small price to pay”: “To join The Hunger Games family was about the biggest jackpot in the last couple of years you could hope to win.”

Comedian Billy Eichner was equally—and winkingly—grateful. “It’s really fun and it was unexpected and very flattering. I think I’m the oldest ‘One to Watch,’so there’s something unique and special about that, too,” the 36-year-old said.

On the horizon, Eichner is returning to Parks and Recreation for what he calls a “great, moving, funny final season” and to Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street, which was widely popularized with a bit at this year’s Emmys.

Souza, who plays Laurel Castillo on How to Get Away With Murder, summed up the honor best, explaining that it isn’t a singular effort. Rather, it came as the result of a brilliant producer, Shonda Rhimes, and an amazing cast and storytelling—in Souza’s option, “the perfect ingredients to make someone ‘One to Watch.'”

The issue is on newsstands now.

'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer goes topless for 'GQ' photoshoot

If you watch Game of Thrones, then Natalie Dormer posing topless for a GQ shoot shouldn’t shock you — after all, we’ve already seen all there is to see in the risqué HBO show.

We think of Natalie Dormer as fearless. She certainly is on-screen, whether playing master manipulator Margaery Tyrell (Game of Thrones), Irene Adler (Elementary), Anne Boleyn (The Tudors), or the mysterious blonde who pops up for key scenes opposite Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz in The Counselor. (“That’s a master class in acting, seeing Javier Bardem relay that story,” she says of Diaz’s now infamous encounter with a car windshield. “It seems so perverse and so funny, but it’s actually a very clever, profound, deep psychological insight into what his character’s feeling at that particular time, especially when he ends the story by saying, ‘Maybe I’m scared.'”)

But when it’s time for Dormer to sit in the audience, there’s at least one kind of movie that turns her into a self-proclaimed coward. We found that out and more when she took EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below.  READ FULL STORY
