I’m certainly excited to see what sort of overcooked and firework-studded final act showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have elected to slap on their magnum opus. Conversely, there’s always a chance that they’ll shoot for something understated and plotted with a fine-tooth comb—highly considered conclusions are always a treat. Regardless of your opinion of Game of Thrones, the spikiness with which the blockbuster HBO hit keeps hijacking the public consciousness and unconsciousness speaks to its undeniable influence.The secret ingredient that makes the show so watchable? That would be the alchemy produced by two of its central stars, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who play sisters Arya and Sansa, respectively.Subscribe to … [Read more...] about Why ‘Game of Thrones’ Would Be Nothing Without Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams

The freelance journalist, 26 at the time, was pitching ideas for stories to the paper’s Sunday magazine, You, when a familiar figure popped up on one of the screens: Hervé Villechaize, star of the kitschy ’70s TV series Fantasy Island. You know, Tattoo, the diminutive, white-suited sidekick to an identically dressed Ricardo Montalban. The one who shouted, “Da plane! Da plane!”What happened to that fucking guy? Gervasi thought.
