Sophie Turner Denies Using Racial Slur In Viral Video


Sophie Turner

‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner has denied using a racial slur in an Instagram video that has gone viral, claiming that she was misheard.

The 21 year old English actress sparked a huge backlash on social media after many believed she used the ‘n-word’ in a clip shared by her boyfriend Joe Jonas that has since been deleted after it went up earlier this week. It showed fitness guru Brendan Fallis introducing the star and Jonas, before she allegedly used the offensive term (which is unintelligible in the video itself and up for debate) having said “what’s up”.

Sophie Turner And Tye Sheridan Dove Into X-Men: Apocalypse


X-Men Sophie Turner Tye Sheridan

Jennifer Lawrence said the newcomers weren't given an easy start: "They really get punched and beaten like the rest of us." To which James McAvoy responds that "they gave as good as they got as well. That's cool." Newcomers to the cast have likened the film to a summer camp where everyone hangs out together both on set and off. "We did everything together," says Sophie Turner, who joined the ensemble as Jean Grey. "Everybody plays together. We had a cast coordinator that organised events for us to go to, so it was like a bonding experience."

Sophie Turner took a break from Game of Thrones to film X-Men

This made it easier for her to work on creating a character. And talking with Famke Jansson, who played Jean in the first X-Men trilogy, helped. "The difference between this and Famke's Jean Grey," Turner says, "is that she's young, insecure and very alienated, even from the other mutants, because she's so powerful. She's also going through all the hormones and the boys and the stuff that every teenager goes through. Being a mutant ain't easy! So there's a real vulnerability to her, and it's great to see how she and Scott [Tye Sheridan as Cyclops] find each other through that alienation. She's a great role to play."

X-Men: Apocalypse Review

Very Good

This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl. There's still a lot of strong character detail, and a big story that can't help but be entertaining. But it's impossible to escape the feeling that the film's scale is far bigger than it needed to be.

It's now 1983, and while Professor X (James McAvoy) works with Hank (Nicholas Hoult) to set up his school for young mutants, his old friend and nemesis Erik (Michael Fassbender) has started a family in a rural corner of Poland. But he can't hide forever. Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is roaming the world helping mutants where she can, meeting the teleporting Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in Berlin before heading to Cairo. There, CIA operative Moira (Rose Byrne) has just uncovered a bizarre underground cult that has revived the ancient super-mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who immediately sets out on a quest to cleanse the planet and start over again. He needs four assistants, and the question is which of the X-Men will go over to the dark side.

This is the third comic book movie in a row about superheroes fighting each other, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And it's similarly enormous (all three films are around two-and-a-half hours long), with mammoth battles that don't quite make logical sense but are compelling enough that the audience goes with them. This film has a bit more emotional depth, including back-stories that have been developed with unusual complexity. But some characters fall through the cracks.

Thrones Recap: The One Where Things Are Still Horrible


Sophie Turner Kit Harington

Ok, I didn’t want to do this, but we have to. Let’s talk Game of Thrones. Particularly after last week’s awful, awful, bad thing that the writers put in unnecessarily, because why not have another rape scene disempowering  a central character, in a show that’s supposedly all about powerful women. Oh yeah, if you haven’t figured it out already, SPOILERS. All of the spoilers.

George R. R. Martin with the Game of Thrones cast in 2013. Let's play a game of "count the survivors".

So, a week  after we had to watch the gruesome, cringe-inducing scene between Ramsay and Sansa, we find lady Stark (soon to be Bolton) in even more dire straits, if that’s even possible. Weeks after she was promised to Ramsay – in an attempt by herself and Littlefinger to win back some power and avenge her family – we find Sansa locked in her room when Reek brings her food. Bruises cover her arms. She begs the man who was once Theon to help her, makes him promise to light a candle in the tower so that someone will come to save her.

Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.

Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
