Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) is all set to wreak havoc because the Ruler of Hell, aka Lucifer, in Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. Perhaps one of the vital beloved graphic novels of all time, The Sandman tells the story of Morpheus, a personification of Dream.
Morpheus is a part of a household of beings often called the Endless, siblings characterize totally different components of the human situation — his brothers and sisters embrace Death, Destiny, Delirium (previously Delight), Desire, Despair and Destruction. His world consists of legendary creatures like Lucifer, a task that Christie ought to be capable to knock out of the park.

And based mostly on her latest Instagram publish, she’s all able to go!

Oliver Twist tells the story of an orphan rising up in London’s underworld and highlights Dickens’ perception that poverty results in crime. In Dickens’ novel, Headey’s character Sikes is male, however the reimagining will put a twist (get it?) on this rowdy and harmful character.
For people who haven’t learn this story, Sikes is a felony in Fagin’s (the antagonist of the story) gang, in addition to a robber and assassin. This sort of function is true up Headey’s alley — she did play Cersei Lannister, in any case.
