So much breaking news coming out of SDCC this year - just like every year I suppose. I was especially excited to hear the casting news for season 5 of Game of Thrones and how they've brought in Doctor Bashir (aka Alexander Siddig), who is formerly of Star Trek: DS9 fame, to play the older brother to Oberyn Martell. You may remember Oberyn as the character who suffered some head trauma last season. As an unabashed DS9 fan, this news is like fresh sip of booze after years on the wagon. Unfortunately we're going to have to wait several months before seeing the product of this casting, but in the meantime we can still bask in some of the finer aspects of the show - namely all the fine hotties who also enjoy their status as cast members on GoT. Among them was Sophie Turner, who was all over the place at this year's SDCC festivities.
Sophie was in solidarity with her GoT costar Natalie Dormer while doing the GoT SDCC panel, sporting a similar partial head shave, or in her case hair braiding, so as to create that lopsided hairdo look. There's probably a name for this look, but I don't know what it is and I don't care anyway. Natalie pioneered the look for her role in the next HUNGER GAMES movie, but now it's apparently become a thing everyone wants to duplicate. Alright, whatever. As long as they have some sort of hair, I can tolerate it.
I'm also pretty okay with the sight of Sophie in a bikini. That's a styling choice we can all get behind.
