Some great news were just announced about Star Wars: Episode VII regarding Academy Award Winner Lupita Nyong’o and Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, who were confirmed to join the cast of the film just hours ago.
We use the phrase “out of the mouth of babes” (Psalm 8:2) to say that children are often wise beyond their years. Today, in the final post of our #GOTInvasion series, I’d like to discuss what comes from the mouths of a different kind of “babe”: the women of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones.’
The Screen Invasion Team watches a lot of television. (Something you may have guessed from the many, many recaps posted daily.) As we watched our Fall TV faves, we noticed a trend: namely, female characters who are kicking ass and taking names (literally, in some cases). Ladies so successfully dominating their respective TV-universes that nothing keeps them down for long. And we wanted to do a little something to show these kick-ass TV chicks the R-E-S-P-E-C-T that is so rightly theirs.
