Reminds me of a promo for a TV show I saw recently. Don't remember the show but it was a bunch of people in a bakery or a coffee shop or some such. It had a bell over the door and every time someone walked in woman from the show said, "Shame!" At first under her breath. . ..

Now I wish I remembered what show it was promoting.

Photo leaked from the set of S7 which shows some characters together. Some may consider this a 'spoiler':

For fans of Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow), he's in a new costume drama for FX, Taboo (trailer at the bottom of an interesting article on the historical background of the series): http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/t...medium=desktop

This is old (like 6 or 7 months) but it is the first time I've seen it and I found it interesting. The actors under the make-up including Leaf, The Night King and The Shame Nun (Unella, I believe).

Just HOW tall is Neil Fingleton anyway? Damn!

ETA: Googled... about 7 1/2 feet!!

ETA 2: Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) is quite stunning too.

Fingelton was a good high school BB player but he was mostly a flop in college at UNC and Holy Cross from 1998 to 2002.
