Carice van Houten joins Dangerous Liaisons show, and more Game of Thrones news


There are always exciting things happening in the lives of our favorite Game of Thrones veterans. Let’s take a tour!

First up, Deadline reports that Carice van Houten (Melisandre) has joined the cast of Starz’s upcoming series Dangerous Liaisons, an adaptation of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ classic 18th-century novel Les Liaisons dangereuses. Van Houten plays Jacqueline de Montrachet, a “pious noblewoman with a mysterious connection” to the story.

She’s not the only former Game of Thrones star in the cast. The series also stars Michael McElhatton, who played Roose Bolton.

At the moment, Dangerous Liaisons doesn’t have a release date, but it sure does have a lot of talent involved. Look out for it on Starz.

Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) has a new single!

A few former Game of Thrones stars are not only terrific actors but also talented musicians. One of them is Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), who performs music under the name Raleigh Ritchie. So far, he’s put out two albums: You’re a Man Now, Boy (2016) and Andy (2020). And now he’s released a new terrific record: “Say What You Mean.”

Take a listen; it’s certainly a lot more exciting than what you would expect from a stoic Unsullied warrior:

Emilia Clarke chills with her dog and welcomes Iain Glen to Instagram!

There’s wholesome content, and then there’s Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) chilling with her adorable dog Ted. The image posted on her Instagram, which has gained over one million likes, is captioned thus: “For the first time in my life I am the big spoon. #thankgodhedoesntpisswherehesleeps.”

That photo might not make her look like the busiest person, but Clarke has a lot of irons in the fire, including releasing her first comic book, M.O.M: Mother of Madness. It’s about Maya, who’s trying to balance her career, her family life and her side gig saving the world with superpowers that are synced to her menstrual cycle.

She also celebrated her Game of Thrones costar Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) joining Instagram. “The man. The myth. The LEGEND,” she wrote. “@iainglen60 HAS JOINED INSTAGRAM!” He’s been on Instagram for less than a week and has already racked up almost half a million followers. You can find him here.

Sophie Turner and Iwan Rheon’s new show is out

Lastly, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Bolton) are part of the animated comedy The Prince, which pokes fun at the British royal family. Both of them are still playing royalty, of course.

Sophie Turner plays Princess Charlotte while Rheon is Prince William. The series also stars Gary Janetti (Prince George), Orlando Bloom (Prince Harry), Condola Rashād (Meghan, Duchess of Sussex), Alan Cumming (Owen), Frances de la Tour (Queen Elizabeth II), Lucy Punch (Duchess of Cambridge), Dan Stevens (Prince Charles and Prince Philip).

Reviews of the show haven’t been great. The New York Post has called it a “poor man’s Family Guy,” while others have docked it for tastelessness.

The Prince is currently streaming on HBO MAX.
