Game of Thronestakes a final bow After years of good and loyal service, the heroes of the Seven Kingdoms are preparing for their final battle on the small screen. Will the Starks, Lannisters and Daenerys Targaryen triumph over the White Walkers? Who will survive this surprising alliance? After its famous and prophetic opening,Game of Thrones(American TV network HBO, 2011), based on the epic saga by George R. R. Martin, very quickly established itself as the series of the decade. Unforeseen developments (1,243 deaths in the first six seasons), complex characters ready to go any lengths to gain power, love intrigues and grand battles in a medieval fantasy land-scape is the perfect formula for TV audiences worldwide. Whether a fan of the series or not, it is impossible not to be aware of the phenomenon that is theGame of Thrones.
From 14 April in the United States (and the 15th in France on OCS), the eighth and final season of this series has already attracted much media attention. The intense level of secrecy established by the production team to avoid spoilers, and the statements by the actors concerning the fate of their respective characters, has only served to increase our curiosity. Speculation has been rife for months. Actors, producers and directors are all promising a fairly “bloody” finale, and according to actress Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), we may need counselling afterwards! The mam-moth budget invested in the final season – 15 mil-lion dollars per episode – suggests a magnificent ending, as spectacular as the beginning.

IVANKA, THE NEW MUSE Ivanka, object of a new art installation
Last month, a new art exhibit depicting Ivanka Trump pushing a vacuum cleaner was shown at the Flashpoint Gallery, a museum in Washington DC. The perormance piece, called “Ivanka Vacuuming,” was conceived by the artist Jennier Rubell. Viewers were invited to throw breadcrumbs in the path o an Ivanka Trump look-alike, dressed in an outfit drawn entîrely rom Trump’s own clothîng lîne, and pushîng a proessîonal vacuum cleaner over a uchsîa carpet. A text descrîptîon o the work în the gallery descrîbed Ivanka Trump as “a figure whose publîc persona încorporates an almost comîcally wîde range o emînîne îdentîtîes – daughter, wîe, mother, sîster, model, workîng woman, blonde”. Her ather, U.S. Presîdent Donald Trump, and her brothers Donald Trump Jr and Erîc Trump, called the exhîbît a sexîst attempt to humîlîate her.

George Pell Cardinal George Pell, the former Vatican treasur-er and top adviser to Pope Francis, was found guilty of molesting two choirboys in the 1990s by the Australian County Court of Victoria. Months of judicial proceedings that were kept out of the news media by a strict gag order preceded the hearing. The 77-year-old Australian Clergyman is expected to be sentenced within the next few weeks. He is the highest ranking Catholic official to be found guilty of sexual abuse on children and technically faces up to 50 years in prison. He has always maintained his innocence.

2.One quality the actress does share with her most famous character: She doesn’t suffer fools, especially reporters foolish enough to ask for details about the obses-sively secretive show’s Season 8, beginning next month on HBO. With just six episodes remaining, this sprawling fantasy epic has entered its climactic stretch. For Cersei, the Season 6 finale and Season 7 solidified her status as one of its most captivating char-acters. And for the woman who plays her, it came at the beginning of a frenetic stretch that saw her get engaged, a few years after a divorce left her reeling, and relocate her

‘A YORKSHIRE LASS’ 3.To understand why Headey, 45, felt the pull of home after more than 20 years away, it helps to get a look at the place, at the magnicent swaths of countryside, stitched together with hedgerows and ancient stone walls. “This made up a part of me when I was born,” she said as we drove through villages with names like Kirkburton and Thunder Bridge. “I’m a Yorkshire lass in my soul and in my heart.”

4.For all of their rustic charms, the vil-lages of Yorkshire were less than nurturing for a young girl with artistic aspirations. In high school, she said, she told a guidance counselor she hoped to become an actor, only to be told that she should instead work in a shop “to get the social aspect you’re craving.” Nevertheless she persisted, and a national theater competition in London brought Headey, then 17, to the attention of Susie Figgis, a noted casting director. She cast her inWaterland, a 1992 literary adap-tation starring Jeremy Irons and Ethan Hawke, and soon the country girl was off to London.

G.O.T AUDITION 5.She spent the 1990s and early 2000s ap-pearing in lms notable (The Remains of the Day,The Jungle Book) and forgotten (The Parole Ofcer), as well as a string of British television series. Her most high-prole part came in 2007 as a strong-willed queen in Zack Snyder’s300. She later reprised the role in a sequel, but it was a little-seen indie lm from 2010 calledPete Smalls Is Deadthat had the more lasting effect. During lming, her co-star Peter Dinklage men-tioned “this mad thing” he was reading for HBO, adding that “there’s this great part for his sister, who’s this incestuous psycho-path,” Headey recalled. “I thought she would be a good t for Cersei because anyone as funny as Lena is can also plumb the darkest depths,” Dinklage, who plays Cersei’s he-roic brother Tyrion, wrote in an email. “The two always go hand in hand.”
6.In auditions forGame of Thrones, Headey separated herself, the creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained in a joint email, by straying “far from the Evil Ice Queen stereo-type,” and capturing the internal tension of a woman destined for privilege, subjugation and loss in equal measure. “Lena was the only one who conveyed the discomfort that comes with being Cersei — the sense of perpetual scrutiny and besiegement that comes with her position in the world, a position she never chose,” they wrote.

“Power is power”), some of her most mem-orable moments feature few words. These include the walk of shame and her explosive coup d'état in Season 6, in which her rivals assembled inside the Great Sept, expecting to persecute Cersei, only to be incinerated when she blew up the church instead. “She can do more with a look than most of us can with a couple pages of dialogue,” said Conleth Hill, who plays the cagey eunuch Varys.
‘WE LOVE A GOOD BACKLASH’ 8.At least once a week, generally, Headey takes a train to London for meetings, voice-over work and other bill-paying endeavors. The morning after our Yorkshire tour, she took the two-hour ride through farmland so she could voice a Mercedes ad. She had picked me up early, and we made a Star-bucks stop that turned into an impromptu sele session with the drive-through work-ers.
