HBO CEO Richard Plepler to step down amid AT&T restructuring

Winter has come for Richard Plepler. The suntanned, smooth-talking Hollywood mogul — who as boss of HBO for the past 27 years has greenlighted a slew of hits including “Game of Thrones” — is stepping down amid a brutal reshuffling under corporate parent AT&T. Insiders said Plepler, 59, appears to be leaving after losing a…

Richard Blackwood ‘won’t rule out’ EastEnders comeback

OHMYGOSSIP — Richard Blackwood says he would “never rule out” an ‘EastEnders’ return, but he has something else “quite big” coming up soon.
The 46-year-old star may have some more time on his hands after he was eliminated from ‘Dancing on Ice’ last night (20.01.19), but it doesn’t look like he’ll be reprising his role as Vincent Hubbard anytime soon.
He said: “I’ve got a movie coming out, also there’s some other stuff that is huge.
“But ‘EastEnders’, I would never rule it out. They were good to me, so I’ve got love for them.
“But there is something else, which is quite big.”
But Richard admitted he would be prepared to head back to Walford if show bosses gave him a great storyline.
When asked if he would return if the plot was right, he replied: “Of course, absolutely, I’ve got love for them.”
The star was disappointed to exit ‘Dancing on Ice’ on Sunday, and insisted he and his pro skating partner Carlotta Edwards had “a lot more” to give.
He added to ‘Lorraine’: “I don’t believe we were ready to go yet. There was a lot more [to give].
“You could see, the dance, it was very strong.”
Last year, Richard admitted the door was “slightly ajar” about a potential Albert Square return.
He said: “It’s slightly ajar. I can see the guys in there and they’re like, ‘Richard, how’s it going?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, just checking. We good? My family still there?’
“‘EastEnders’ was really good for me. It’s a fast machine. It taught me you don’t have the luxury of taking the time to overly rehearse.
“It’s very quick but it gets you to that place of landing it straight away and trusting it.
“It’s like a master-class. I’m very fortunate.”

Richard Madden rules out series two of Bodyguard before 2020 as crew ‘need a break’

BODYGUARD fans will have to wait until at least 2020 for a second series, according to one of its stars.

Richard Madden, 31, has dashed hopes of returning to the screens as protection officer David Budd anytime soon.

He told the Daily Mail: “Budd needs a break a sort his life out.

“You just can’t slap a script together and throw it onto the screen.

“It has to be carefully thought through. First of all, what is the story?”

Richard won a Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama this weekend for his role on the Bodyguard.

His star is rising and he has even been linked with taking over the role of James Bond.

Richard’s ever rising popularity also means the show may risk him not being available.

He added: “What’s the next step for a character like David Budd? The thinking is for all of us to have a break and come back to it fresh maybe in a year or so.

“I enjoyed playing him and I think the public liked him. We’ll get together and see what’s there.”

Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio revealed he’d be interested in returning to the political thriller.

He told the Daily Mirror: “I have got some ideas for a second series, but it is worth waiting until the run is finished to see which bits worked and which bits didn’t work for the audience.”

After the last episode ended on September 23, 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed that Jed is writing FOUR spin-off shows from Bodyguard.


After Juliet was killed in an explosion in episode four there has been much speculation that Julia is still alive.

The theory was strengthened after eagle-eyed fans spotted that Keeley Hawes was listed on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB.com) as appearing in the final episode.

But however, there was no sign of her in the season finale and she is in fact really dead.

A Subtle Twist Of Line: Richard Berner Live Screen Printing Event

Meet Richard Berner, the host of this month’s Live Edition Printing evening with The Private Press.

Richard Berner

What links Audrey Hepburn, Amy Winehouse, the Houses of Parliament and a tentacle-wielding creature from the deep? Unless you have any other (we’d like to say unlikely) suggestions, the answer to that would be Brighton-based artist Richard Berner.

A regular feature on the walls at artrepublic Brighton, Berner’s work blends fine ink work and cultural iconography with a dusting of dark humour. While some of his images are straight-up homages to famous figures, such as David Bowie, Charlie Chaplin and, erm, Storm Troopers, each finished with watercolour hues, drips and splodges, others have the hallmarks of those classic political caricatures found in famous international newspapers and journals for centuries. You know, the ones that take familiar forms and figures but toy with them just enough to make a clever commentary or subtle joke.

Bowie by Richard Berner

Whether it’s a beautiful moth that turns out to be made up of hundreds of tiny skeletons and ghoulish creatures, or a King Kong-like figure ascending Big Ben, drawn in a way that references Dali’s dripping clocks, Berner’s illustrative images definitely reward close inspection. The great news is, you can get up really close to the artist’s next limited edition, as he’s producing it at this month’s Live Edition Printing evening at the gallery, run in collaboration with The Private Press.

Join us at artrepublic Brighton on 26 October, from 6-8pm, as Berner unveils, hand-finishes and signs an edition of just 50 prints, which you can buy there and then. As usual, the after-work creative session will also feature drinks at the gallery and a chance to meet the artist and have a chat about his work.

 

To find out more about the event, and to save yourself a space at (or near) the printing press, check out our eventbrite page.
