It’ll take more than the coronavirus to keep the cast of Game of Thrones from getting up to stuff. Let’s check in with some of our favorite citizens of Westeros and Essos.

First up, Jacob Anderson, aka Raleigh Ritchie, aka Grey Worm, has put out a second album. Yup, if you didn’t know, Anderson has long moonlighted as a musician, putting out low-key R&B jams that I actually like a lot. His latest, Andy, is out now, as he’ll tell you himself:

He even stopped by The Last Late Show with James Corden (from a safe social distance, of course) to perform the song “Squares,” complete with several squares full of instrumentalists accompanying him. Form follows function:

Next up, Sophie Turner turned up in a cute little sketch put on by Global Citizen. It starts off as a Zoom reunion of actors featured in the very first X-Men film, from way back in 2000. You’ve got Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart…and then Ryan Reynolds has to force his way in, since he was in the roundly reviled X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), long an activist on climate issues, talks about how the coronavirus pandemic presents an opportunity for change:

And to end on something more lighthearted, what is Carice van Houten (Melisandre) doing on her Instagram?

I don’t know but I approve.
