GOT Characters Matched With Their Zodiac Sign

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

Instagram / @thefan.for.all

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.

Over the weekend, actress Tracee Ellis Ross shared a video on her Instagram account which revealed the big news. The video shows the old cast replaced with the new onerevealing who is taking on which role. According to the video, Ross will take on the role of Rose Nylund which was originated by White, King will replace Arthur’s role of Dorothy Zbornak, Lathan will take on McClanahan’s role as Blanche Devereaux, and Woodward will fill in Getty’s role of Sophia Petrillo.

Woodard, Ross, Lathan, and King will star in the re-imagining of the hit 1980s comedy series which will air tonight for a Zoom Where It Happened virtual watch party.

“In an effort to further engage our community and drive change, all you need to do to enjoy this evening is sign up to receive messages about how you can make a change during this election!” says the page for the event. “This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change – the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.

“The Golden Girls” reboot isn’t the only show revamped virtually for charity.

Earlier this summer NBC brought the cast from the beloved “Parks and Recreation” series together for a reunion. Actors Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir, and Retta all took part in the reunion alongside a group of guest stars from the Pawnee world.

“Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,” the show’s executive producer Michael Schur said in a statement. “I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old ‘Parks and Rec’ team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!”

The show works to raise funds for families in need during the time of the pandemic.

“In such uncertain times, we can’t think of anyone better than Leslie Knope to unite our country with her unbridled enthusiasm and compassion,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment also explained in a statement. “A huge thank you to Mike Schur and the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation’ for putting this wonderful special together and bringing a smile to all our faces while raising money for such a worthwhile cause.”

“The Golden Girls” special airs tonight at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. The show will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and hosted by actress Lena Waithe.

‘The Tax Collector’ Director Denies That Shia LeBeouf Is In Brownface

‘The Tax Collector’ Director Denies That Shia LeBeouf Is In Brownface

Shia LeBeouf is in the new movie “The Tax Collector” and people are accusing him of brownface for this role. The actor takes on the accent for the role and got a chest tattoo to do the role authentically. For some, it is cultural appropriation and it has started a debate.

Shia LeBeouf is the man in “The Tax Collector” and people have questions.

The pulse-pounding trailer has all of the action you can handle so you can only imagine what the full movie is like. The movie is all about the tax collector having to fight to protect his family when a rival takes over his turf. LeBeouf is ready to do whatever it takes to save his family.

Some people are very upset about the role for LeBeouf.

The tattoos and the accent are too much for people. Some have argued that the role was not at all a way of cultural appropriation. Instead, LeBeouf is playing a white role that happens to have grown up in a neighborhood where he picked up the accent and a certain way of dress.

The argument is going both ways with people fighting to defend him.

While the role could be really problematic for some, others see themselves reflected in it. There are many people defending LeBeouf because they too grow up in a neighborhood and took on the culture of the neighborhood.

The director of the film, David Ayer, spoke out saying that LeBeouf is not in brownface.

“He’s a white guy playing a white guy. He’s not taking anyone’s work away,” Ayer told the LA Times to calm the critics.
