What I want to do with Jon is that he can’t be a hero straight away, and that’s what the writers are doing as well. He has to learn,” Harington tells Zap2it. “I think this season he really starts learning. He starts being able to control his temper more, which he’s not been so good at in the past.

Rest in Peace, Betty Joan Perske, aka Lauren Bacall. (September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014.)

"Stardom isn’t a profession, it’s an accident."

A truly amazing actress who has touched all our hearts and changed our lives. Betty was a Hollywood legend in the true sense of the word and she will never, never be forgotten. Thank you so much for everything, Betty. We hope that you’re with Bogie now. ♥

Happy Birthday Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor!

(February 27, 1932-March 23, 2011)

Her sunny looks often led the critics to overlook her powerful performances and underrate her acting ability,  but she has won over her detractors  with tenacity and dedication to her craft. She was always striving to push herself to the limit. Revisiting her work is revelatory. Every time you watch her films you discover something new.

-Paul Newman
