Kit Harington Feared ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Would Be Accused of Sexism, and He Was Right

Published

“Game of Thrones” often came under fire over its eight-season run for its depiction of women (no more so than after Sansa’s controversial rape in Season 5), but the show reached a new low during its final season as Daenerys went full “Mad Queen” in what felt like seconds, Brienne was left crying over Jaime, Missandei was executed, and more. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Kit Harington revealed he was worried about the final season causing backlash over the series being sexist. Harington feared the show’s final two episodes would come under scrutiny for killing off two of the show’s most important female characters: Daenerys and Cersei.

“One of my worries with this is we have Cersei and Dany, two leading women, who fall,” Harington said. “The justification is: Just because they’re women, why should they be the goodies? They’re the most interesting characters in the show. And that’s what ‘Thrones’ has always done. You can’t just say the strong women are going to end up the good people. Dany is not a good person. It’s going to open up discussion but there’s nothing done in this show that isn’t truthful to the characters. And when have you ever seen a woman play a dictator?”

As for Daenerys’ dark turn, Harington was fully aware how strongly it would polarize the fandom. “I think it’s going to divide,” Harington said. “But if you track her story all the way back, she does some terrible things. She crucifies people. She burns people alive. This has been building. So, we have to say to the audience: ‘You’re in denial about this woman as well. You knew something was wrong. You’re culpable, you cheered her on.’”

Daenerys ends up being murdered by Harington’s Jon Snow, who has come to realize that his former love and current queen would lead the world into destruction and perpetual war. Harington said the twist was especially hard for Jon Snow.

“This is the second woman he’s fallen in love with who dies in his arms and he cradles her in the same way,” Harington said. “That’s an awful thing. In some ways, Jon did the same thing to [his Wilding lover] Ygritte by training the boy who kills her. This destroys Jon to do this.”

She hated ‘From Justin to Kelly.’ But Kelly Clarkson is ready to act again in ‘UglyDolls’

Published

At the point when Kelly Clarkson won the debut period of “American Idol” in 2002, her agreement qualified her for both a record bargain and a job in a studio film. The main issue? She despised acting.

“I cried,” the artist, presently 37, said. “I conversed with numerous legal counselors and couldn’t escape the motion picture.”

The film was “From Justin to Kelly,” a Fox melodic co-featuring Clarkson and her “Deity” sprinter up, Justin Guarini, as two twentysomethings who experience passionate feelings for on spring break in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The 2003 discharge earned a humiliating $4.9 million in theaters, scored only 10% on Rotten Tomatoes and, as indicated by Wikipedia, “is frequently viewed as one of the most exceedingly awful motion pictures at any point made.”

In spite of the way that the motion picture bombarded, Clarkson kept on getting offers to star in movies. She turned them all down — put something aside for a “seven-line” appearance in the 2017 energized film “The Star” — to concentrate on her genuine enthusiasm, singing.

Be that as it may, when the producers behind STX’s “UglyDolls” moved toward her about playing the lead character in a motion picture dependent on the prominent deformed children’s toys, she chose to turn around her no-acting position. In the film, out this end of the week, Clarkson voices Moxy, an UglyDoll who’s advised she’s too ugly to be in any way given to kids who lean toward progressively impeccable looking toys.

“This job couldn’t be more me,” the entertainer said. “I get extremely anxious acting, so I don’t for the most part do it. I don’t care for it. I will in general remain in my customary range of familiarity. In any case, this was somewhat amazing, in light of the fact that I thought: I must act … this is essentially my character throughout everyday life.”

After a morning of shooting NBC’s “The Voice” — where she fills in as a mentor close by Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and John Legend — Clarkson examined her semi come back to the extra large screen, her up and coming television show and her tough skin.

OK, was doing “From Justin to Kelly” honestly that bad?

I just didn’t believe in it, first of all. I’m not a beach blanket-movie kind of girl. And I didn’t want it to deter or ruin any chance of me being able to go down the path I actually auditioned for on “Idol.” They did give me this: I begged them — since I had to do it contractually — I wanted my single to be released before the movie came out and I think that literally saved my career. It was “Miss Independent.” The fact that that was successful, I think that overcame what the movie was.

You don’t have any positive memories from being on set?

It was a very miserable time of my life. I feel like it’s one of those things where, “There are plenty of people that would love to do this — why don’t you ask one of them?” There were plenty of people on that show. I think I might have been the only one that didn’t want to do it. But the winner had to, so. I can get over the fact that it’s silly and cute — that’s not embarrassing to me at all. I just don’t find it very cool that somebody makes you do something that is not your passion and you don’t want to do.

Did that experience sharp you on acting, or was your heart only never in it?

I have a feeling that in case you’re in the spotlight, individuals think you need to do every one of these things. On the off chance that it’s something I need to do — I show up on TV demonstrates where I have an inclination that it’s entertaining. I did “The Crazy Ones” with Robin Williams since I grew up watching him and I cherish him and I resembled, “I’ve simply gotta express yes to that. Who gets the chance to be in a scene with Robin Williams?” But I would prefer truly not to focus on some huge sort of job since I regard that craftsmanship immensely. All entertainers shouldn’t be artists and all artists shouldn’t be on-screen characters.

Once upon a time, Judy Garland and Doris Day and Rosemary Clooney — ladies did all things, they sang, they moved, they acted in light of the fact that they all originated from stage. I discover organize altogether different. Like melodic theater? 100% I would do. It’s live, and you don’t stop me. I like beginning and afterward you get the opportunity to recount to the story, nothing’s intruding, and you don’t need to re-try anything. I like the energy of that. I don’t get anxious doing that.

You sing the songs in the film, but you didn’t write them. Did you consider working on the music?

They asked me to write music for the film and I was like, “I have a lot of jobs.” And my kids come first. I was like, “This is not me saying I don’t want to do it — I don’t have time to do it. I’m choosing my kids and all the other jobs before this.” When the Pink song came in, it was awesome. I’ve done songs on my albums where I haven’t lived the experience. … For a movie, you kind of put your ego aside and go, “This isn’t Kelly Clarkson making a record, this is Moxy.”

Before this interview, I googled you, and all of the recent stories mentioned your weight loss. Does it bother you that since “Idol,” your looks have been so publicly scrutinized?

I am from a very small town and ever since I can remember, especially in the South, they say something about what you’re wearing, what you’re believing, what you’re thinking, how you should be. Honestly, the industry isn’t any different than a very small Southern town. … Maybe that’s the universe — God — setting me up or preparing me. It doesn’t bother me. What does bother me is when people say stuff — not all people in the limelight come with the same armor or thick skin or same amount of confidence. … It’s not easy for some people I know in the industry to take that heavy criticism that’s not constructive, it’s just mean. Not everybody can blow that off, that’s the bummer.
