To be honest there's not a lot I remember from the last season of A Game of Thrones -- I'm hoping HBO does a killer recap for us because it's been so long! -- so I hope that Joe Dempsie doesn't mind that I don't remember his character Gendry finally reappearing after having vanished for several seasons. I loved Gendry, or so I thought, so you'd think I'd recall him showing back up, but... nothing.
Anyway I was reminded of his return over the weekend when I saw him featured in the new issue of Men's Health, which is where those two photos come from -- you can read his chat right here. And then I was further reminded of Genry's triumphant return when there he was, stomping about...
... for a hot sec in the brand new trailer for the final season of the show, which just dropped today. Game of Thrones returns on April 14th -- here watch this:
"If not my favorite of that year - and it may be - it's at a minimum in the top 3 or so. And Jake should absolutely have been up for the Oscar that year, and maybe won (although I'd have been good with Keaton). While it has a look or style that relates to an older Los Angeles, the heart of it is as timely as can be, sadly."
--- For its 5th anniversary I gave some love to Dan Gilroy's film Nightcrawler for besides being awesome also seeing our awful present in advance, and here reader Scott agrees.
