On Friday at Comic-Con, JJ Abrams took the stage along with LucasFilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and proceeded to blow the doors off the place.

If you still need a reason to get on board with New New Star Wars, let it be Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie as the villain, Captain Phasma. As part of their Star Wars edition, Vanity Fair is still rolling out new information on Episode VII—I still can’t bring myself to call it The Force Awakens. Full Story

Gwendoline Christie, though you probably know her as Brienne of Tarth, was named British Actress of the Year last night by Harper's Bazaar. Jaime would be so proud of her. No, really he would.

As expected, the Game Of Thrones panel at Comic-Con this weekend was a big deal. And it was a chance to say goodbye to a couple of our favourite characters. Also a look-ahead to Season 5. So here are Gidget and Oberyn Martell alongside Jon Snow and Arya Stark and the Hound and Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister who, for me at least, is quickly becoming the Pacey Witter of this show. Full Story

Brienne of Tarth and Gidget from Game Of Thrones were both at the Groucho Club in London last night. It makes me happy. It makes me happy that they hang out when they’re not in the North or fighting bears in the Seven Kingdoms. Spoiler alert, even though, you know, how can you not know by now. Full Story
