So I was standing in line to use the restroom when I hear “Tulach Ard!” I thought one of the girls behind me was watching it on her phone but no I turn around and its my phone in my back pocket. I take it out and an Outlander video that I had tried to download a few weeks ago was playing. The video had just completed downloading and even though my phone was on silent and regaled the women’s restroom with Jamie’s Mackenzie cry.
I went for a role in the last season of Game of Thrones. I didn’t get it, but I got quite close.

A Season 3 character?! Could it have been Locke, or Karl Tanner or maybe even Daario? My money is on Daario. The closest to his age and his type of character he would normally go out for. It *winkwinknudgenudge*
The world must know which character! For science!
I wish he got it! I would of died.

"After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me ‘Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy’ and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy!’ and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more."

Downton veteran Dame Maggie Smith was in fits of laughter on the ITV set - after her onscreen granddaughters showed her a series of rude clips on YouTube.
Jim Carter, who plays butler Carson in the hit drama, told how Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael and Lily James would surprise the star with the videos to prompt a reaction. And he told how Dame Maggie never failed to disappoint, frequently dissolving into giggles with the girls in between takes for the latest series.
Jim said: “Michelle, Laura and Lily treat Maggie like their real grandmother - they show her rude things from YouTube. In between takes they all play games, they gossip and have fun.”
He went on: “Maggie is as witty as the Dowager Countess. It’s the fourth or fifth time I’ve worked with her and she loves it, she is on great form. Julian Fellowes writes really well for her. And what is lovely is that I get to see her more than Phyllis Logan, who plays Mrs Hughes.”
Despite enjoying his role in the ITV series, which returns on September 21, Jim admitted filming dinner party scenes as a butler can be tedious and tiring. And he joked he has won medals for his patience.He said: “Stand in that corner for the rest of the afternoon while everyone is talking about something else and see how you like it. Every time there is a dinner party scene, think of that waistcoat in the background that occasionally comes in with a carafe of wine. And think that that was ten hours of my life - I get medals for patience.” (x)
I sat down beside him, close, my hand on his leg, and his hand on mine. We sat thus for a bit, side by side, watching the rain clouds roll in over the rriver, like a threat of distant war. And I thought tha whether it was choice or no choice, it might be that it came to the same thing in the end.
Jamie’s hand still lay on mine. It tightened a little, and I glanced at him, but his eyes were still fixed somewhere past de dooryard; past the mountains, and the distant clouds. His grip tightened further, and I felt the edges of my ring press into my flesh.
‘When the say shall come, that we do part’, he said sofly, and turned to look at me, ‘if my last words are not “I love you” - ye’ll ken it was because I dinna have time’
