Sean Bean does video game voiceover, Emilia Clarke beauty blogs, and more


Even as the pandemic rages on, Game of Thrones stars are finding ways to keep themselves busy. These are their stories.

First up, Sean Bean has scored a new gig, or rather he’s continuing with an old one. The man who played Ned Stark was the narrator for the video game Civilization VI, which came out in 2016.

It’ll be digital-only this year, of course, with Clarke participating from the safety of her coronavirus-free home. She’ll be taking part in a conversation with Paul Feig, who directed her in the rom-com Last Christmas.

I think we can all agree that Gwendoline Christie is a good fit as a queen. And two are even better. You can watch her performance in A Midsummer Night’s Dream through July 2, when it will vanish from YouTube.

And finally, John Bradley (Sam Tarly) contemplates having a mustache:

“I look like a cuckolded husband from the 50s.” So is he happy with it…?
