If you haven’t seen this delicious teaser for the Popcorn Taxi video of RA’s Q&A, get thee to their Facebook page and watch:

“What happens in the calendar, stays in the calendar.” Oh RA, you tease, you! We are promised more will follow soon. *sigh* Can’t wait!

Maisie Williams, Arya Stark on one of my favorite shows, Game of Thrones, tweeted this photo of her showing off her very own Arya figurine. I told her Mini-Arya was almost as cute as the real thing.  A great actress and just too darned adorable to boot! Oh, those big brown eyes . . .

And speaking of big brown eyes, the latest portrait of our puppy Jack. I am a little biased, but I think he’s absolutely gorgeous.

And here’s his mama, Seabee, free at last from quarantine after her surgery, hale and hearty and so happy to be reunited with her boy and “Uncle” Rascal. 😉

I am so happy I found other people who are my kind of crazy. It’s great hanging out with all of you.  ((hugs))

GoT Withdrawals: Maisie Williams

Standard

As many of you know, I am a huge Game of Thrones fan. I have even gotten a couple of you to watch it and also become hooked. You can thank me later. 😉

Yes, it can be graphic at times in terms of both sex and violence. It’s not for the very young, the very delicate or overly squeamish. But for grownups who enjoy an array of interesting characters played by very talented actors, literate and witty scripts and engaging storylines, it’s a winner.

HBO has taken this whole other world imagined by author GRR Martin  and brought its various kingdoms and inhabitants to vivid life on the screen. I admit I watched the episode with the great battle near the send of series 2 no less than five times, I found it that compelling.

Heck, I even love the opening credits. They are phenomenally creative and imaginative and the theme song is wonderful. The theme music has an epic feel and I love the cello. Hmmm, who does that cello remind me of?


There are many performers on GoT whose work I truly like. But one who was new to me who has completely won me over is young Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, the feisty youngest daughter of Lord Ned Stark.

Maisie Williams during a break on the set of GoT. I think this picture is just too cute.

Maisie, who is 15, has appeared in musical theater and is an accomplished dancer, performing tap, jazz, ballet en pointe along with gymnastics and trampolining.  But GoT was her first onscreen role.  I think this pint-sized actess (she’s five feet tall) holds her on against much more experienced performers such as Sean Bean and Charles Dance.

Maisie as Arya in the guise of a young boy in the second series of GoT.

She is set to appear in an upcoming television series The Secret of Crickley Hall and will return in the third season of GoT (can’t hardly wait!!)

Here is a clip from Season 2 with Arya and Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance)

I truly look forward to seeing Maisie in other roles and I would love to see her acting with a certain TDHBEW, too. Of course, I would also love to see our Richard pop up on GoT. I haven’t read the books so I have no idea which character I might want him to play. I’d just enjoy seeing him on one of my favorite shows.
