Have you ever wondered who your Game of Thrones counterpart is? Wonder no longer, amigos! With the series finale on the horizon, we’ve consulted the stars, read the books, and watched the show to find out who you’d be in the land of Westeros. Remember – when you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Just a warning, though: this post isn’t spoiler-free, so if you’re not caught up, it’s time for you to watch some TV!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Daenerys Targaryen

Did someone mention the god of war? Because as the conqueror of Essos, the First of your Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons, you make the best candidate for taking the Iron Throne. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll keep it.

As a fire sign, flames don’t scare you. In fact, you’d happily stand in dragon fire. It gives you the best view when you want to watch the world burn.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Jon Snow

If anyone knows you for anything, they know you for being one of the most honorable people they’ve ever met. Despite the fact that you don’t want to be a ruler, you make a great leader simply because you’re always thinking of what’s best for your subjects. You’d happily bend the knee if it meant securing the safety of your people.

But please. Don’t. Sleep. With. Your. Aunt. It’s not going to work out well, for anyone.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Tyrion Lannister

You might be clever, but you know what people remember about you? Your ability to talk. And talk. And talk. And talk. You just don’t shut up.

It doesn’t help that you usually have a glass of something in your hand, even at the best of times. It might make you you, but it also means that you have zero filters, too. Sometimes a little tact wouldn’t go astray.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Samwell Tarly

Instagram / @gameofthrones.official.it

No matter how many white walkers you kill, everyone knows you for being a softy at heart. It’s what made the perfect storm when you met Jorah Mormont, and came across the cure for greyscale. Your propensity to care makes you a great healer.

Instagram / @arte_manzano

Just … uh … don’t get your family torched by dragons any time soon.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Cersei Lannister

Instagram / @cerseigotfan

You’re fierce, and you love the spotlight. You take the house Lannister motto, “hear me roar!” to the next level. You know that whatever the people say about the dragon queen, you’d still make the best ruler of the seven kingdoms. After all, you’ve pretty much been running Westeros since the times of Robert Baratheon, anyway.

Instagram / @marijafinn

You always pay your debts – whether that be in gold, or in vengeance.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Brienne of Tarth

Instagram / @oathdreamerfic

Simply because Virgo is the sign of the virgin doesn’t mean that you have to stay that way forever. Though, you’ll always keep a little bit of your innocence, since you are just that that innately good and honorable.

Instagram / @kate_woodlover

You’re honest, hardworking, and legendary with a sword. All you really want is to be respected for who you are as a person.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Olenna Tyrell

Instagram / @the.daily.meme.queen

You know how to keep your priorities balanced, and you tend to have little schemes all going at once. Though, looking at you, most people wouldn’t be able to pick it. What you’re really known for is your sassy tongue.

Instagram / @hiphopnerdgasm

The most important thing for you on your death bed is for Cersei to know it was you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Yara/Asha Greyjoy 

Instagram / @vesleskjor_cosplay

If you’re a fan of the books, or the TV show, will depend on how you know Yara/Asha Greyjoy. You know that with your vicious battle and leadership skills, you’d make the perfect ruler for the Iron Islands – even if there’s never been a woman on the throne there before.

Instagram / @rmkworks

You’re also a bit of a flirt, and don’t care who knows about it. So what if you bed a few men, or women while conquering Westeros? You’ll still get the job done, and reclaim what should be rightfully yours as a Greyjoy.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21): Bronn of the Blackwater

Instagram / @serbronndelleacquenere

Generally speaking, you’re pretty happy-go-lucky … as far as the Seven Kingdoms goes. Emphasis on the “lucky” part – between the Battle of the Blackwater, facing off against a couple of dragons, and your propensity to say whatever’s on your mind, it’s surprising you’ve made it this far in the Game of Thrones.

Instagram / @slane_artist

Your grand ambition is to own a castle and spend whatever years you have left in you drinking the day away. And to never have to deal with the Lannisters, ever again.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20): Sansa Stark

Instagram / @roberto_brunetti_

After the things you’ve seen, and the people you’ve met, you’re an old soul at heart. You know when to keep your head down and work in the shadows. It’s pretty frustrating to you when you know that you’ve got a pretty keen sense of judgment, but no-one seems to listen to your advice.

Instagram / @studiosuhye

You’re a perfectionist, and you know that you’d make the best candidate for running the North. And to be honest, most people know that you’d be the best for the North, too.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18): Arya Stark

Instagram / @game_of_thrones_uk

Quirky doesn’t even begin to cover it. People know you for being weird, and there’s no way you’d ever take the time to explain yourself – that would be too tedious. You can be vicious if need be. But, you’re clever and fast enough to also be able to take down the Night King.

Instagram / @h___s__m

Anyone who’s lucky enough to get close to you will find out that you do have a heart of gold, and a real sense of honor and fairness. Let’s just hope that they don’t get physically close to you. That’d be dangerous. For them.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Catelyn Stark

Instagram / @gaameeoofthroonees

People sometimes forget that you were born under the sigil of the fish. But, no matter what happens to you, or where you are, you know that it’s a part of who you are as a person. You’re guided by the adage: “family, duty, honor”.

Instagram / @robertoonilustrador

You have so much love for your family and friends, so it pains you when they don’t take your advice on really important matters. You only have their best intentions at heart! Just watch your back if you’ve got plans to go to any weddings anytime soon.

Naya Rivera’s Co-Star Lauren Potter And Others Are Paying Heartbreaking Tributes To Her

FOX

After days of searching, actress Naya Rivera’s body was recovered at Lake Piru in Ventura County, CA. Her life ended saving her own 4-year-old son Josey during a boating trip that went awry on July 8. But before her tragic end, Rivera was an actress and singer who won awards for her breakout role as Santana Rivera on the FOX series “Glee” and used her platform to support the LGBTQ community.

In response to her death, co-stars, fans, and admirers are celebrating her life and highlighting her work.

Check out some of the touching tributes below.

Naya’s co-star Lauren Potter paid tribute to the late actress with a throwback photo.

Cheerios Forever

A post shared by Lauren Potter (@thelaurenpotter) on

Like her co-star Rivera, Lauren Potter became a breakout star thanks to her role on the FOX series “Glee.” Known for her part as Becky Jackson on the series, Potter paid tribute to Potter with a photo and a heartbreaking caption that read “Cheerios Forever.”

Rivera’s “Glee” co-star Chris Colfer honored her in an Instagram post writing that “being close to her was both a badge of honor and a suit of armor.”

Speaking of Rivera, Colfer wrote “How can you convey all your love and respect for someone in one post? How can you summarize a decade of friendship and laughter with words alone? If you were friends with Naya Rivera, you simply can’t. Her brilliance and humor were unmatched.”

Glee turned Dreamgirls actress Amber Riley also paid tribute.

Riley, one of the only Black actresses besides Rivera in the early seasons of the show described Rivera as her favorite duet partner. “I love you. I miss you. I don’t have words right now, just lots of feelings. Rest In Peace Angel, and know that your family will never have to worry about anything,” she wrote.”

Heather Morris, Rivera’s love interest in Glee explained that she was taking some time to grieve.

Morris had been one of the people to join in the search for Rivera.

Reality star Nene Leakes promised to hold memories of Rivera “close to my heart.”

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow also contributed to the comments with a video of her and Naya singing “Landslide” while on Glee.

“Remembering beautiful @nayarivera today,” Paltrow commented. “Getting to sing in this trio with her was such a special moment. I am in utter shock and disbelief that someone so full of life and passion and talent is no longer with us. And completely heartbroken for her family.”

Yalitza Aparicio Says She’s Waiting For A Role That Won’t Pigeonhole ‘Because of Appearance”

Yalitza Aparicio Says She’s Waiting For A Role That Won’t Pigeonhole ‘Because of Appearance”

Since the start of her acting career, Oaxacan actress Yalitza Aparicio has been sure to see that her work helps uphold her community. While many actors on the rise tend to focus on racking up more acting roles and fame, Aparicio has been much more vocal about her desire to focus on her advocacy and work for organizations like Cine Too. What’s more, ensuring that she secures proper representation for Indigenous people like herself.

While Aparicio first made headlines and won our hearts with her performance in the 2018 film Roma the Indigenous actress has yet to appear in another role on screen.

It turns out, it isn’t for a lack of offers.

Speaking with Indie Wire about her career, Aparicio has said that she is taking her time to find a role that properly represents her and her community.

“My objective in my career is to give visibility to all of us who have been kept in the dark for so long,” Aparicio claimed in a recent interview with IndieWire. “The acting projects I’m working on are moving slowly because I’m putting all my efforts in not being pigeonholed because of my appearance.”

Aparicio, who is 26-years-old, was born in Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca, rocketed to fame when she took on the role of Cleo in Alfonso Cuarón’s 2018 movie Roma. The film, which was nominated for various Academy Awards followed Aparicio as Cleo a housekeeper who works in a wealthy household in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma. Aparicio’s role brought her praise not just for her skills but for her role in solidifying a much-needed portrayal of Mexico’s Indigenous community.

Still, despite the praise and fame, the role brought her, Aparicio is adamant that her next role will be something greater.

“I come from a community where there’s no movie theater, and as a consequence, the population — especially the children that grow up in those communities — has less of an interest in the cinematic arts. [Cine Too] has the possibility to reach these children and provide an opportunity to instill in them the passion for cinema and teach them about this art form,” she explained in her interview. “I’m conscious that every step I take may open doors for someone else and at the same time it’s an opportunity for society to realize we are part of it and that we are here,”

In her interview, Aparicio points out that while she is very aware that Indigenous filmmakers and allies “have a complicated job because these things can’t be changed overnight,” she is still pushing for real change.

“Wherever I go, I’ll always be proudly representing our Indigenous communities,” she asserted. “We can show people that the only limits are within us.”
