Kit Harington is no longer clueless.

The Game of Thrones actor revealed on BBC’s The One Show Friday that he bawled as he and his cast mates sat down for a read through of the final episode of the hit HBO show.

“We had a read through last week in fact, so I know everything now,” he said.

While the final episode won’t air until the series comes to an end with the eighth season in 2019, the actor said he couldn’t help but get emotional.

“I cried at the end,” he said. “You have to remember that eight years of it — no one really cares about it more than us.”


SPOILER: The Marvel Cameo in Thor: Ragnarok That You Haven't Heard About Yet

Popsugar October 20, 2017 by RYAN ROSCHKE

 Warning: we're about to dish on a major Marvel spoiler in Thor: Ragnarok.

While that other surprise celebrity cameo in Thor: Ragnarok came out of left field, there's one character appearance that makes a whole lot of sense. Early on in the third installment of the standalone Thor films, we check back in with none other than Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Basically, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) go to Earth to find their father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), whom Loki has left stranded in a human retirement home. Sadly, the human retirement home has been completely demolished. Loki then suddenly vanishes from Thor's side, and only a small card with a Bleecker Street address is left behind. Thor goes to the address to find our mystical brooding doctor, complete with his magical cape.

Doctor Strange's appearance is actually kind of a no-brainer. Their big scene gives us serious déjà vu: Thor across from Doctor Strange, drinking a huge beer stein that never seems to empty, asking about Loki's whereabouts. The reason it feels so familiar is it's pretty much an exact replication of one of the postcredit scenes for the Doctor Strange origin story film. Except this time, we have context.

Is Gorgeous About Tom Hiddleston? Taylor Swift's New Song References "Ocean Blue Eyes" So Many Times

Sabienna Bowman

It is a truth universally acknowledged that when Taylor Swift drops a new single, the internet will promptly begin speculating whom the song is about. It happened with the first single she dropped from Reputation, "Look What You Made Me Do," and the interwebs quickly determined the song centered around her infamous VMAs feud with Kanye West. It happened again with her second single, "...Ready For It," which, apparently is about her time dating former One Direction member Harry Styles. So whom is Taylor Swift's "Gorgeous" about? The internet has plenty of hypotheses, but given how many times blue eyes come up, it almost certainly has to be the case that "Gorgeous" is about Tom Hiddleston.

Because Swift has a long and storied history of attributing her former flames (and feuds) as inspiration for her songs, it's no surprise that people are certain that "Gorgeous" is about #Hiddleswift. A few notable examples include, allegedly, Taylor Lautner in "Back to December," Jake Gyllenhaal in "All Too Well," Joe Jonas in "Forever and Always," and the list goes on. And there are even some more obvious mentions. Most likely, "Style" is about Harry Styles, and "Dear John" is about John Mayer. And, come on, "Gorgeous" being about Hiddleston, just makes so much sense.

Laughter on the Orient Express: Judi Dench tells BAZ BAMIGBOYE why she's working with Kenneth Branagh on film adaptation of Agatha Christie classic

Daily Mail
Updated October 20, 2017

Judi Dench would like her future contracts to include a clause stipulating that she will refuse to work with grumpy co-stars.

'I don't want to work with anyone who hasn't got a sense of humour,' she insisted, with a hint of merriment behind those blue eyes.

'It's essential! I simply am not interested in working with them if they're miserable by nature.

'It's like the froth on the top of Guinness. You have to have the froth, and then you get to the real thing.

You discover people through larks,' the actress told me, while explaining why she has worked with Kenneth Branagh ten times over the years.

'I always get into trouble with Ken — and I like that!'

The two pillars of the British acting establishment are together again in the Fox 70mm extravaganza of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express.

Branagh directs, and also plays the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot; while Judi plays the imperious Princess Dragomiroff.

In the film, the Princess arrives with her personal maid (played by Olivia Colman) and two Shih Tzus.

'She's horrible to Olivia. She's a very autocratic princess. So bossy. And Russian. She's just rude; and you wouldn't want to work for her,' Judi said when we met in Soho.

We had the most glorious time,' she said, of her time on set with co-stars Johnny Depp, Derek Jacobi, Penelope Cruz, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Pfeiffer and dancer Sergei Polunin, as well as newcomers Lucy Boynton and Tom Bateman.

'Not only that: he stayed in the hotel I use when I am up in London. He's ruined my reputation!'One reason why everyone got on so well, she told me, was because filming took place in the interior of a luxury train. 'You had to be part of the company, because nobody could get off!'

David Tennant and Billie Piper explain why they’re returning to Doctor Who

After years apart, the Doctor and Rose are returning to the Tardis for new intergalactic adventures – but with a bit of a twist. You see, this time the pair (played by David Tennant and Billie Piper) are back in the Doctor Who world thanks to the efforts of long-running audio drama producer Big Finish, who previously brought Tennant back with co-star Catherine Tate (companion Donna Noble) for a series of untold adventures last year and are now doing the same for the Tenth Doctor and his earlier companion.

 And while this isn’t the first time the actors have reunited in the Whoniverse since Rose and the Doctor parted ways in 2006 (Rose came back for a few episodes in the 2008 series and in Tennant’s final regular episode in 2010, and Piper starred as The Moment in the 50th anniversary special alongside Tennant’s returning Doctor), it’s still the first time we’ve seen the pair in action for a while – and now they’ve explained what tempted them back into the weird and wonderful world of Who
