Sean Bean recommends killing people with rubber duckies, and other news


When the stars of Game of Thrones aren’t speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the show’s eighth and final season, they’re busy moving on with their careers. Some are headlining new movies and television shows, while others are taking to the stage. Let’s see what they’ve been up to.

Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) has a new film coming out on November 9: Time Freak. In the movie, Turner’s character, Debbie, dumps boyfriend Stillman (Asa Butterfield), possibly because he has a last name for a first name. But Stillman is a scientific genius, and he builds a machine he uses to travel back in time to try and fix their relationship. SyFy Wire has an exclusive clip:

Maybe move on, guy? I’m thinking that’s where the movie will end up.

Moving on, the man who was Ned Stark, Sean Bean, voices villain Mark “the Undying” Faba in the upcoming Hitman 2 video game, out November 20. The game hits consoles on November 13, and Bean is a big part of the marketing campaign. Watch below as he extolls the value of killing people with everything from a rubber ducky to a toilet:

Bean is also starring in the second season of Medici: Masters of Florence. He plays Jacopo de’ Pazzi, the head of a banking family that tried and failed to assassinate Lorenzo de’ Medici. Funnily enough, Richard Madden, who played Ned Stark’s soon Robb on Game of Thrones, was the lead in the first season of Masters of Florence. He played Cosimo de’ Medici, the grandfather of the man Bean is trying to kill in season 2.

The second season will hit Netflix later this year.

Finally, Kit Harington (Jon Snow) discusses his new play, True West, with WhatsOnStage. He’s starring alongside Johnny Flynn (brother of Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn on Thrones). They play brothers who maybe have some issues to work out:

True West is a 1980 play by Sam Shepard. “Set in the searing heat of the Californian desert, this critically acclaimed drama pits brother against brother as a family tears itself apart, exposing the cracks in the American Dream.” It opens November 23 at London’s Vaudeville Theater.

Squint really hard and you can pretend this is the trailer for Game of Thrones season 8. Kit Harington, a guy who’s related to Bronn…it could work.
