AfterEllen 2012 Hot 100 Results

The results for AfterEllen's 2012 Hot 100 were published yesterday, June 26. But, it crashed. AfterEllen apologized, "Sorry, technical difficulties."
Okay... Let's try this again. The results for AfterEllen's 2012 Hot 100 are out! But they were still having some problems. So if you are having trouble viewing the Hot 100 list, as of this posting, AfterEllen was still working to fix it.
If you remember, they had lots of problems during the voting too. And even closed the polls a whole day early. Before opening it back up but without the link to the ballot page listed. So, if you want to take this year's list with a grain of salt... You won't be alone.
If you haven't viewed the list yet, STOP reading NOW! Click on AfterEllen 2012 Hot 100 to see the results. If its still not working, try again later.
SPOILER AHEAD!!!
Lena has come in at #21.
And the top 3 are:
#1 Naya Rivera
#2 Dianna Agron
#3 Heather Morris

DREDD: First Full Trailer

Here's the full trailer for Dredd, starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd, Lena Headey as Madeline ‘Ma-Ma’ Madrigal and Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson.

***If you can't see the trailer here, watch it on YouTube!***
The movie hits UK theaters on September 7th and US theaters September 21st.
There is some talk going around about what is and what is not the 'first OFFICIAL release trailer'. So, if they put out another one, we'll keep looking and post it here as well. But any trailer with Lena in it I'm cool with.

An Interview with Lena Headey

Interview with Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey
Here's a quick interview of Lena at Collectormania done by Neela Debnath for The Independent Blog.
Her character is scheming and malicious and Headey’s brilliant performance has resulted in a strong reaction from fans. ‘I usually get: ‘you’re a fucking bitch’. But today people have told me that think Cersei’s great. So I’m quite happy about that.’

It’s even more surprising that Headey does get noticed as Cersei considering that she looks quite different to her character. Unlike Cersei’s long, flowing blonde locks, Headey has short, dark hair and wears a pair of glasses.

The British actress, who also played Sarah Connor in the short-lived television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, goes on to say that she gets recognised as either Cersei or Sarah. ‘Sometimes no one recognises me which is fab but either or.’

Headey gave birth to her first child in 2010 and I ask whether her experiences as a new mother have had an influence on her performance as Cersei, who is a mother of three. When she answers there is warmth to her a voice and a smile as she tells me. ‘It’s massively influenced me in every bit, all the work I’ve done since having my son, because you access a little place you never knew existed. It’s like a recess of love and protection and loyalty, all of those magical emotions.’

Lena Caption: TSCC - To The Lighthouse

Okay, so... spent the weekend having a Lena Headey movie/TV show marathon. Can you believe its been 4 years since Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles premiered? And the final episode of the series aired April 2009. They say, 'time heals all wounds'. But I STILL miss this show! 

Changed the caption for the first panel of '300 - No One Insults The Queen'. Credit goes to Joe for using the comment section to contribute his idea. Thanks, Joe. I added your name to the picture.

Game Of Thrones: An Interview w/George R.R. Martin

Check out this video of an interview with George R.R. Martin, the author of the 'A Song of Fire and Ice' series that HBO's 'Game Of Thrones' is adapted from. The Lena/Cersei part starts at 12:17.


I will not go off about George saying Lena's last name wrong... BUT...
(picture is a re-post from Oct. 2011 Pete Smalls Is Dead post)

They're headed into season 3 and he can't say Headey? This from a guy who names his characters crazy made-up names, like Jaqen H'ghar & Xaro Xhoan Daxos. Is Headey really THAT hard??? Is it me??? Okay, sorry, I said I wouldn't go off, then I went a little off...

Dredd Poster


Here's the full synopsis:
The future America is an irradiated wasteland. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge - a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of "Slo-Mo" experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival. 

There hasn't been a trailer released yet but with a theater date set for September, there's still time. If I were a betting person I'd say 'Dredd' is waiting for Comic-Con in July to make its big marketing push. And because a  lot of people have short attention spans, and marketing campaigns are expensive, they may save the heavy hitting for later in the summer. 

You can follow the updates at their official website Dredd, on Dredd's Facebook page, and at Lionsgate.com.

Hopefully there'll be a Ma-Ma poster. But if not, well, we'll just have to make one...

This video was taken by Emily Borrowdale at the Game Of Thrones discussion panel featuring Lena Headey (Cersei), Natalia Tena (Osha) & Roxanne McKee (Doreah). Emily has added annotations because its kind of hard to make out some of the conversation. The video has been re-sized to fit this blog post, so some of the captions get cut off. To fix this, hit the button to watch it in full screen or watch it on youtube. Thank you very, very, much Emily. You get, like a ton of Lenaholic cool points!

Natalia Tena gives one the best answers EVER! to the question, 'What would you do if you were on the Iron Throne?' And Lena's House Motto??? ...Yes, please! Its good to be bad!
