Support RA as Euron Greyjoy in Game of Thrones 4:
We can see clearly now...
Another Dracula seems to have borrowed Thorin's coat. Jonathan Rhys Meyers goes from portraying a bloodthirsty king to a,,,err,,,vampire. And from Irish, British speak to the broadest American accent ever heard on either continent:)
For anyone who has seen the British tv adaptation of Eliz Gaskell's North and South many times, but never viewed the US adaptation of John Jakes trilogy North and South - including yours truly:) - Here's episode 1 of both series. For the very first time that I've noticed, the tv series of Jakes books is currently playing on Encore. It's star is Patrick Swayze, who has of course passed to a movie set in the skies. His co-star is actor James Read (playing Orry's best friend), whom I'd never noticed before, but am verrrry impressed with in the following series (according to IMDb he's still acting in various tv roles)
I've already seen sharp criticisms of the authenticity of costumes, etc for this upcoming series about young Mary Queen of Scots. Would be best for the critics to keep in mind that encouraging the younger generation to watch some form of history of the human race should be endorsed and supported, rather than squelching the effort with negativity. If it's necessary to accomplish this major feat by *sexing up* history somewhat - so be it, for the greater good.
On the trail of a new historical series - when it *reigns* it pours with information about this upcoming saga. Appears both Ashford Castle, Co Mayo and indeed the one visited last week at Tullamore are filming locations. Latter is prob for interiors:
An example follows of the Charleville Forest Castle, Tullamore, Co Offaly interior. Ashford Castle apparently shows the result of very prosperous owners(Guinness family) who transformed it into a more modern home, while Charleville looks frozen in time:
Yet another historic saga..*happy dance*.. based on the War of the Roses (hence titled 'The White [rose] Queen') will begin Aug 10..
