Kate Middleton and Prince William's Perfect Date Night Is Surprisingly Low-Key

  • Popsugar
Prince William and Kate Middleton may be the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but their ideal date night is actually pretty low-key. According to Us Weekly, when it comes to spending quality time together, the royal couple enjoys the simple things in life. "Kate loves nothing more than ordering Indian takeaway and eating it from a dinner tray on the couch while watching a bit of Netflix with William," a source told the outlet.

And if you're wondering what shows they like to watch, back in 2017, William revealed that he and Kate are fans of Homeland and Game of Thrones. However, now that Game of Thrones has ended, they've apparently been binge-watching Bodyguard.

William and Kate tied the knot in a lavish royal wedding in April 2011 and are parents to three beautiful children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1. Despite how busy their schedules may get, we're glad they

Keeley Hawes is an Emmy triple threat in ‘Bodyguard,’ ‘Mrs. Wilson’ and ‘The Durrells in Corfu’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Keeley Hawes is an Emmy triple threat in ‘Bodyguard,’ ‘Mrs. Wilson’ and ‘The Durrells in Corfu’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Keeley Hawes can be found on the Emmy ballot in three categories: for her leading role in the period piece “The Durrells in Corfu” and her scene-stealing supporting turns in the crime drama “Bodyguard” and the compelling true story “Mrs. Wilson.” She reaped BAFTA bids for the latter two and featured in the Must-See-Moment winner for the shocking scene in which her character on “Bodyguard” is assassinated.

That moment came halfway through the six episodes and was akin to Janet Leigh being killed off in “Psycho.” Like Leigh who was a star in Hollywood’s golden era, Hawes has ruled British TV for the better part of two decades. She was one of the reasons that “Bodyguard” attracted record ratings in the UK (20% of the country watched the finale) and some viewers still refuse to believe that her character is not coming back.

But as Keeley confirms in our interview

TV Talk Podcast: Is ‘Game Of Thrones’ Inevitable In Drama Series Emmy Race – Or Is A Major Upset In The Cards?

In today’s edition of our weekly TV Talk podcast Deadline TV Critic Dominic Patten and Awards Columnist Pete Hammond take on the top race for the Emmys , the marquee Best Drama Series which last year saw Game Of Thrones in its penultimate season (after taking the previous year off the competition) returning in triumph to reclaim the Golden Throne it had previously won twice before.

Or is it ‘Game’ on for other contenders in a wide open field of possibilities since a whopping five of 2018’s nominees here are all ineligible since they did not present new seasons in time for this year’s race, or in

‘Rocketman’ Director Considered Having Rami Malek Reprise Freddie Mercury in Elton John Biopic

‘Rocketman’ Director Considered Having Rami Malek Reprise Freddie Mercury in Elton John Biopic
The Elton John musical biopic “Rocketman” has received endless comparisons to four-time Oscar winner “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and it turns out the two movies could have been directly related had director Dexter Fletcher gone through with an idea to have Rami Malek reprise his role of Freddie Mercury in “Rocketman” opposite Taron Egerton’s John. Fletcher revealed the idea during an interview with Gay Star News (via /Film).

“There was an idea I had one point, where Elton’s in a restaurant with his mother,” Fletcher said. “I thought John Reid and Freddie could be at another table and they wave at each other! That would have been amazing, [but] it didn’t come to pass. It would’ve been a little too knowing. I’m not looking to set out to make a cinematic universe!”

John Reid managed both Elton John and Queen, so it wouldn’t have been too out

'Bodyguard' Creator Jed Mercurio in Talks With BBC for Second Season
After the first-season finale of Bodyguard became a small-screen phenomenon, series creator Jed Mercurio on Monday said he's in talks with the BBC about a second season.

"We're in talks. We're going through the logistics of it. There's no real update now," Mercurio told a keynote session at the Banff World Media Festival.

Richard Madden and Amy Adams on Nude Scenes and ‘Acting as Therapy’
Richard Madden and Amy Adams sat down for a chat for Variety’s Actors on Actors. For more, click here.

Amy Adams and Richard Madden are famous for on-screen virtue — Adams has played a crusading linguist in “Arrival,” a good-hearted nun in “Doubt” and a fairy-tale princess in “Enchanted,” while Madden’s first big role after the heroic Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones” was the Prince in Disney’s “Cinderella.” This year, both plunged into moral ambiguity as trauma survivors trying to solve dark mysteries, Adams on the Southern noir “Sharp Objects” and Madden on the British counterterrorism thriller “Bodyguard.”

Amy Adams: First of all, my husband wanted me to make sure and tell you how brilliant you are. We were discussing the level of commitment to that particular level of tension and how impressive it is that you’re able to hold that tension. How do you do that?

Richard Madden Talks End of 'Bodyguard': "I Felt Very Isolated and Broken — Much Like the Character"

Richard Madden Talks End of 'Bodyguard':
Golden Globe-winning star of Bodyguard, Richard Madden, told The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Actor Roundtable he found himself "physically and mentally exhausted" at the end of filming the BBC series. "I need to stop. I need to stop doing this for a while," Madden thought, after playing a veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (Ptsd).

"It weighed very heavy on me," the actor told the roundtable. "You spend more time in someone else's clothes, saying someone else's words, thinking someone else's thoughts. You do lose a bit of yourself."

How the Editor of 'Bodyguard' Heightened Tension in That Nail-Biting Train Sequence

For editor Steve Singleton, Bodyguard writer/creator Jed Mercurio’s “master stroke” was to skip a conventional opening and start the series with a nail-biting scene during which police sergeant David Budd (Richard Madden) is traveling with his kids on a London-bound train when he discovers a suicide bomber.

“The viewer was immediately taken down a tense and dangerous path with an unknown person and discovered much about his character and personality issues along the way,” Singleton says of the BBC series, available in the U.S. on Netflix.

To cut the scene, Singleton says he and ...

Emmy Contenders Need to Find Ways to Build Oscar-Style Buzz (Column)

Emmy Contenders Need to Find Ways to Build Oscar-Style Buzz (Column)
Why should the film folks have all the fun? In features, the Oscar race is the stuff of constant conversation as contenders are continually placed on the field — first at various film festivals, then at a litany of awards shows before the Academy Awards picks the ultimate season-ending victors.

In TV, the Emmy march isn’t nearly as robust, and there are plenty of reasons for that. For the longest time, TV festivals weren’t necessary to expose audiences to the few new or lesser-seen shows, and Emmy campaigns were pointless when the same programs kept winning year after year.

That’s all changed, but Emmy season hasn’t caught up to the new order of things just yet. There’s very little pomp and circumstance in the months leading up to the Emmys, and that’s why audiences may feel less invested in the races — and ratings aren’t

Emmy Experts say these Seven men could all win Best Drama Actor: Bob Odenkirk, Richard Madden …
The eligibility period for the 2019 Emmys ended on May 31, and voting for nominees gets underway on June 10, but the race for Best Drama Actor is still no clearer than it ever was. Last year’s champ, Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”), is out of the running because his show ended its run. So who will fill that vacuum? According to the Expert journalists we’ve polled from major media outlets, there are seven men who may win, even though there are only six guaranteed slots for nominations.

The Experts’ favorite as of this writing is Bob Odenkirk for “Better Call Saul.” He’s backed by 6 out of 19 savvy journos: Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Matthew Jacobs (Huffington Post), Kelly Lawler (USA Today), Kaitlin Thomas (TVGuide.com), Ben Travers (IndieWire) and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby). Are they right? Odenkirk is already a two-time Emmy winner as a variety writer for “Saturday Night Live

"No One Wants to Be the Good Guy": Hugh Grant, Richard Madden, Billy Porter and The Hollywood Reporter Drama Actor Roundtable

In an attempt to loosen up the six actors gathered for The Hollywood Reporter's annual Drama Actor Roundtable, the moderator tossed out an innocuous question: What would people be surprised to learn about you?

Pose's Billy Porter, 49, jumped in first, offering an honest, if mild, response. "As I've grown older," he shared, "I've become more of an introvert." Fosse/Verdon's Sam Rockwell, 50, seized the opportunity to agree, noting that he suffers from social anxiety.

Next up was Richard Madden, 32, of Netflix's Bodyguard, who had a little more fun with the ...

How ‘Bodyguard,’ ‘Ozark,’ ‘Into the Badlands’ Use Action to Enhance Tension

  • Variety
The idea of using traditional thriller tropes in a TV show can be a tricky one. Unlike action movies, in which the story is typically used to string together elaborately choreographed fight scenes long enough for the hero to limp off into the sunset, with a series, the action has to be balanced out with the larger story, while the consequences of any shootouts or sword fights will ripple through the narrative long after the smoke clears.

But utilizing action on the small screen can heighten and subvert the storytelling and help elevate the medium. While there are obvious big-budget contenders, including HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” others, such as BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” AMC’s “Into the Badlands” and Netflix’s “Ozark,” all utilize action-thriller elements as a method to amplify their storytelling, rather than overshadow it.

“Action can be like porn,

Is ‘Game of Thrones’ unbeatable at 2019 Emmys or could a challenger dethrone it?

Is ‘Game of Thrones’ unbeatable at 2019 Emmys or could a challenger dethrone it?
It is probably no coincidence that many of the biggest awards-friendly drama series got out of the way in preparation for a “Game of Thrones” Emmy steamroll. Heavily awarded series like “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things” and “Westworld” are each debuting their third seasons outside the eligibility window to compete at this year’s Emmys. All four were nominated and lost Best Drama Series last year to “Game of Thrones.” None are in competition this year and “The Americans” has ended, so that leaves only “Game of Thrones” and “This Is Us” as possible returning shows to the Best Drama Series category. Yet, “Game of Thrones” received some unexpectedly divisive reviews for its last season, so what was once thought to be an easy final victory could be more up in the air.

Kingsman’s Matthew Vaughn Would Direct A James Bond Film On One Condition

The ongoing search for the next James Bond has thrown many names into the ring. One actor who’s risen to the top of the pile recently though is Scottish star Richard Madden. Someone rooting for him to get the role is filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, who knows a little something about the spy movie genre from directing the Kingsman films. In fact, if Madden did end up getting the highly-coveted part, Vaughn might be interesting in helming a Bond film himself.

While speaking with Screen Rant about the buzz for Madden as 007, Vaughn showed that he thinks the actor would make a terrific successor to fill Daniel Craig’s shoes by throwing his ring into the hat to direct his inaugural movie as England’s greatest spy.

“If Madden plays Bond, I’m maybe even interested in directing it.”
