Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is featured in the July/August 2018 issue of GQ South Africa.
From the digital issue:
At the end of the final season of Game of Thrones (set to air in 2019), Kit Harington will return to real life. After spending ten years living on the edge of The Wall, dying, and coming back to life again, he’s ready to lay down his sword. We find out what he’s doing after Winter is over.
It was almost immediately after drama school that Kit Harington was approached for the role that would make him globally famous. He was not aware of George R.R. Martin’s books and was only drawn to participate in the pilot because of the company producing it. “It was HBO, and that’s all that really mattered to me But the script? I didn’t really understand it. I read it twice and thought, ‘this is the most bizarre thing ever. I don’t quite get why they’re doing it, but I’m in.'”
What will he miss when Game of Thrones is over? Iceland, the location of Westeros’ north beyond the wall, where much of 2011’s second season was filmed. “That season was the most significant because we realized the show was successful, we were suddenly in this incredible location and I was with the girl I fell in love with,” he says. That girl, Rose Leslie, played Ygritte with whom Snow fell in love with before she died. But in real life the pair recently tied the know. They now share a house in the English countryside. “It’s in Suffolk – it’s lush – in the middle of the country.”
Game of Thrones returns in 2019 with new episodes on HBO.

Arrested Development star Isla Fisher is featured in the July 2018 issue of Marie Claire Australia.
In the issue:
For more than two decades, Isla Fisher has been charming Hollywood with glamour and giggles. Sitting down with Marie Claire at the exclusive Chateau Marmont, the Perth-born actress opens up about the joys and challenges of raising a family in LA.
“Juggling a family in LA isn’t easy,” says Fisher, 42, who has three young children Olive, 10, Elula, seven, and Montgomery, three. “There’s not really a culture of bringing your kids to dinner parties or to restaurants past 6pm. I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family – it’s easier to put your kids to bed and have a wine with friends.”
Fisher and Baron Cohen met at a party in 2002, and she describes that moment as like “winning the lottery.” Married since 2010, Fisher puts their attraction down to being “polar opposites” and reveals their relationship success is due to “a shared sense of humour and a willingness to be married.”
The family is planning to return to Australia for Christmas this year and Fisher has dreams of relocating. “I have this secret fantasy of slowing down, moving to Byron Bay, getting off the grid and sitting on the sand with a Vegemite sandwich,” she admits.
Arrested Development is currently streaming on Netflix.

Power star Lela Loren is featured in the June 2018 issue of Regard Magazine.
From the digital issue:
The success of Power is phenomenal. How have you appreciated the development of Angela’s character throughout the seasons?
“Throughout the seasons, no matter what happens she’s completely unable to stop loving Jamie. She tries to stamp it out, but fails continually. This gives such a human, vulnerable, even childish counterpoint to her slick professionalism. Playing that contradiction is incredibly rewarding.”
There’s always been this back and forth tug of war between Angela and Ghost (Omari Hardwick). Despite some decisions, Angela is a strong woman that’s not afraid to fail. How do you think that translates to the audience?
“Though strong and intelligent, Angela is a character who doesn’t play by the narrow rules of society and morality. The power of Angela’s character is that whether you love her or hate her, she completely engages you.”
What can you share with us about Angela, her relationships and the rest of the cast for season two?
“It’s a season of ‘strange bed fellows.’ I’ll leave it at that.”
The season premiere of Power airs Sunday, July 1st on Starz.
