Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are in mourning after one of their dogs, Waldo Picasso, died last week in a freak accident where he was struck and killed by a car in NYC.

The Game of Thrones star and Jonas Brother were heartbroken at the death of their Alaskan Klee Kai dog, and have paid tribute to their 'angel' by getting matching tattoos.

"I miss you, Waldo," Turner wrote on her Instagram story, along with a photo of her new ink on her forearm.  "Rest in peace my little baby."

Jonas also posted an image of his matching tattoo on social media, writing, "R.I.P. my little angel."

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas both commented on the singer's post with emojis, while Turner's Dark Phoenix co-star, Jessica Chastain, wrote "I'm so sorry".

Tattoo artist Dragon, of Bang Bang Tattoo, shared photos of Jonas and Turner getting their tribute ink yesterday.

"Joe and Sophie, thank you so much guys," Tattoo artist Dragon captioned his Instagram post. "See you later!"

An NYPD spokesperson told E! News that a woman filed a police report on Friday, July 26, saying that on Wednesday around 11:30pm, a vehicle did not stop and struck a dog on the street before leaving the scene. 

The dog was brought to a hospital, where it passed away. According to TMZ, Jonas and Turner's dog walker had Waldo on a leash while out on the Lower East Side of NYC

The publication claims that the pup "got spooked by a pedestrian" and ran into the street before being hit by the car. A Jonas rep called the heartbreaking incident "a freak accident."

The newlyweds apparently were so brokenhearted by Waldo's death that they went to see a therapist last week.

The passing of a beloved pet can be such a difficult experience, we hope they find some comfort with their other puppy.

Jason Momoa is well known for being one of the most infectious sources of energy in the celebrity sphere, but he's truly made a few children's wishes come true today.

The 39-year-old Aquaman star, who was launched to fame after starring as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, shared a series of adorable photos from his first Make A Wish Foundation volunteering experience.

He spent time with some of his youngest fans, many of whom are terminally ill. The actor was clearly overcome with emotion about spending time with such inspiring youngsters.

He captioned the sweet photo; “My first 'Make A Wish'. I will do this for life. Such an amazing day with Eva Eros and Kalice and all the ohana.”

Momoa added, “Mahalo Warner Bros for setting up an amazing tour for these beautiful children.” The actor is known for using Hawaiian phrases on his social media posts.

The superhero gave the kids an inside look at Warner Bros Studios, where a few costumes for its biggest franchise are held.

The Batman costume and Batmobile, as well as the Aquaman throne and his costume from the 2018 film live at the studio, among others.

Well, we most likely still aren't quite over season eight of Game of Thrones.

For the most part, the writing was beyond ridiculous, and fans were so frustrated that some of them even began a petition to remake the final season.

Some of the cast-members showed up to a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and addressed the furious fan reaction to the series finale, which…bombed.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared b (@gameofthronesne) on

It's only been two months since the HBO hit show ended, but the wounds haven't quite healed yet, it would seem. We're trying to desperately forget that the season ever even happened.

The cast got back together on Friday to talk all things GOT, and referenced the Change.org petition to 'Remake Game of Thrones Season eight with competent writers' that got 1.6 million signatures. 

Nikolaj CosterWaldau (Jaime Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), Conleth Hill (Varys), and Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos) showed up to the panel.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@jaimeybrienne_) on

They got candid about the hugely negative reaction to the final season, with Nikolaj mainly addressing the "level of absurdity of the online petition";

"Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding. And obviously, the end," he continued.

"I feel so lucky to have met so may fans of the show, and to realise this show has brought so many people together. Watching it, loving it. So obviously, It comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what."

The Danish actor, who portrayed Jaime Lannister, added;

 "It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s absolutely fine. If you hated the ending if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names."

Conleth (the Master of Whisperers) joined in, saying; 

"You look at the amount of people who are here. We are here to thank you for watching us all those years. This is the reality rather than a media-led hate campaign."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@bestofisaachw) on

When Nikolaj was queried on his death scene, he said; “I thought it was perfect for him to end in the arms of Cersei."

Variety reported that some fans in the audience disagreed, and even booed the actor. “It made sense to me – that’s just my opinion," he said.

His co-star Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) previously said she was “gutted” about how her character died under the pile of bricks, and even revealed further disappointment over a crucial Cersei scene being edited out of the show.

Bodyguard has become the BBC's first series to be nominated for an Outstanding Drama Series Emmy in nearly 50 years, but it's star was snubbed in the Best Actor drama category.

The actor played the role of David Budd, war veteran turned head of security for controversial British Home Secretary Julia Montague, played by Keeley Hawes.

Madden picked up the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Drama Series, beating Ozark‘s Jason Bateman, Stephan James (Homecoming), Pose's iconic Billy Porter and Matthew Rhys (The Americans).

It's fair to say that fans are absolutely livid over the former Game of Thrones actor's snub, and are demanding answers…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @filmin_altyazisi on

Critic Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter pointed out in a tweet how odd it was to see the show nominated without Madden getting a nod when he was in pretty much every scene.

Madden received great reviews for his recent appearance in Elton John biopic Rocketman, and was even named one of 2019’s 100 Most Influential People by Time magazine…So why the rudeness?

Critic Philiana Ng of Entertainment Tonight agreed with the fans about the shocking omission, using Madden's image as a meme to show her dismay;

Twitter user Katy wrote; "Golden Globe Winner Richard Madden snubbed of an Emmy nomination just doesn’t sit right with me at all.

"He put his heart and soul into making 360 minutes of television & delivered one of the most breathtaking performances I’ve ever seen and then doesn’t even get nominated." DAMN RIGHT.

Some even resorted to using Emmy-nominated Kit Harington to emphasise their sadness;

The star gave his all when it came to his performance as David Budd, who suffers from PTSD from his time serving in the British army in Afghanistan.

The thriller aired in the US on Netflix but was originally produced by ITV-owned producer World Productions for the British public broadcaster.

As well as Bodyguard's Outstanding Drama Series nomination, creator Jed Mercurio also picked up a nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series for the pilot.

Game of Thrones leads the Emmy Awards nominations, setting a new record with a whopping 32 total nominations.

Brilliant Phoebe Waller-Bridge BBC show Fleabag landed 11 nominations, including a Lead Actress nod for the writer/actress, whose show Killing Eve also received multiple nominations.

Bodyguard is expected to return for season two, with Mercurio saying he was “optimistic” about its chances of a renewal. All we want right now though, is Justice For Richard.

Sophie Turner has given fans a much-coveted glimpse at her stunning wedding ring after completing her second marriage ceremony with Joe Jonas last weekend.

The Game of Thrones actress and Jonas Brother wed in France alongside their family and friends at the beautiful Chateau de Tourreau, and her Louis Vuitton wedding dress had everyone gasping.

The wedding featured her BFF Maisie Williams and their dog Porky Basquiat as a groomsman, of course.

While congratulating the USA women's soccer team on their World Cup win against England, Sophie flashed us the stunner of a ring;

Earlier in May, #Jophie decided to have a Las Vegas wedding in order to make things official in America before jetting off for their traditional French wedding.

Sophie's Instagram story was posted yesterday during her honeymoon, and the ring is absolutely covered in diamonds along the wedding band. We're not jealous…not at all..

The actress praised Alex Morgan in particular for her goal celebrations (that tea sip is divine), but everyone was distracted by the rock on her finger.

Joe proposed to Sophie back in 2017, and we've been waiting to see the added wedding band ever since. 

Her wedding ring is a little more simple than the jewelled engagement rock: the thin band is laced with sparkling diamonds, matching the stone on her initial ring.

You may remember that the pair swapped ring pops at their Las Vegas wedding, so the new jewels are a definite step up for the happy couple.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have treated us to the first photos from their wedding on Instagram, and we have died and gone to nuptials heaven.

Just days after their private ceremony in the south of France, the couple are sharing stunning images of the bride and groom walking down the aisle as husband and wife.

Louis Vuitton's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, shared an image of Turner's wedding gown before the Game of Thrones actress posted her own images.

The newlyweds then revealed black-and-white photos from the private ceremony last night, showing the rest of the world a rare glimpse into the secretive event.

Photographer Corbin Gurkin captured the actress and Jonas Brother holding hands while walking down the aisle, looking absolutely over the moon as they walk through flower petals.

Turner dons a beautiful long-sleeve dress by Louis Vuitton, captioning the photo as, "Mr and Mrs Jonas."

The couple said 'I do' for the second time at the Château du Martinay in Carpentras, France, and hosted the reception and afterparty at the Château de Tourreau in Sarrians.

The guests stayed at the lavish venue during the weekend of the wedding, according to E! News. The pair first got married in early May in Las Vegas on a whim for legal reasons.

Fans have seen some special paparazzi pictures taking from outside the French location, such as the iconic Jonas Brothers' balcony photoshoot and their dog Porky Basquiat wearing a tux.

We're all sitting here, living our best lives, trying to speed up time so that Drag Race UK will FINALLY AIR on our screens sometime soon.

The creators of RuPaul's Drag Race, World of Wonder, confirmed the big news that a British version of the show was coming to BBC3 on Twitter months ago.

Mama Ru herself issued a statement, writing: “I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.

Before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a 'Royal-Mother-To-Be' runway challenge.”

With Alan Carr and Graham Norton already announced as celebrity judges for the show, it has just been confirmed that Ginger Spice Geri Horner and Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall will also join the panel.

Opening up about her appreciation for drag, Horner said;

“I just love how drag encourages people to be exactly who they are. This show has brought so much joy and pride to people all over the world, I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing queens representing the UK in this first ever series."

Jade also gave a joyful statement as another official girlband princess,  saying:

“I love absolutely everything about drag. I love that it’s art. I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”

Game of Thrones' most badass assassin, Maisie Williams, has also signed up to be a guest judge.

The show dooesn't have an air date or a trailer as of yet, but we'll be keeping a look out.

Controller of BBC Three, Damian Kavanagh, described the achievement of the BBC acquiring the show: “Needless to say, we’re delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new UK version of Drag Race.

“It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a UK version have been at feverish levels. With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.”

The show is set to be filmed in London, and casting directors will be searching far and wide for the best drag artists in the UK and Ireland with massive budgets for costumes and production.

RuPaul has an extensive following over in this part of the world, so we'll see if the new queens will give the original USA stars a run for their money.

We can't wait to see what UK and Irish drag artists bring to the party, but with a judging panel as incredible as this, what's not to love?

In case you missed it, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner married Joe Jonas over the weekend, celebrating their gorgeous second wedding ceremony at Chateau de Torreau.

The pair got married the first time in a low-key setting in Las Vegas earlier this year, with Diplo adding the wedding to his Instagram Live.

The chateau dates back to the 17th century and survived the French Revolution, and miraculously is available to rent on Airbnb.

What does this mean? We can get a sneaky inside look of the stunning castle and it's surrounding environment, that's what it means.

The beautiful property is set on 20 acres of grounds and features a swimming pool, vegetable farm, tennis courts and water fountains. 

Turner was spotted nearby last week sporting Dior's 'We should all be feminists' t-shirt and an all-white ensemble. Herself and Joe look fairly loved up on their trip to France, but we're not jealous at all. Not even a tiny bit. Honestly.

The chateau is a cool €4,200 per night for just one guest, so if you're bringing a gang of friends you may need to take out a loan…

The property on Airbnb is described lavishly;

“Château de Tourreau is one of the most exquisite private estates in Provence." Well, that much is clear.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @chateaudetourreau on

"Within easy reach of the Provençal “gold triangle” (Avignon, St Rémy and Aix-en-Provence) beautifully restored to reflect the 18th century, this majestic estate has a sophisticated refinement, enhanced by provencal furnitures."

"Once the gates have closed, you find yourselves in a world of your own, a world of legend and history, as if you were in an ancient royal palace of which you were the new privileged king."

Oh damn, we want that privileged queen lifestyle.

A-listers were invited to the celebrity wedding, of course, such as the groom's brothers and their wives. Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Kevin and Danielle Jonas and fellow GOT stars.

Priyanka stunned in a pink Sabyasachi sareeposing up a storm on Instagram.

It was rumoured for months that #Jophie were planning a second wedding in France, and the couple confirmed their Parisian trip with a snap of them outside the Eiffel Tower.

Legendary Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey has revealed that a deleted scene in season seven of the show could have changed how everyone saw her character.

If the deleted scene had been allowed to have stayed, the outcome of the iconic series may have been viewed in a different light.

Despised but badass queen Cersei Lannister let slip at a comic book convention in Munich that a key scene had been cut from the final episode showing.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@iamlenaheadey_) on

The 44-year-old actress believes that the scene would have aided in explaining Cersei's actions and choices over the final season.

Lena revealed that the edited scene showed Cersei losing the baby that she was to have with her brother, Jaime Lannister.

She described it as a "traumatic" scene and a "great moment for Cersei," which was sadly left on the cutting room floor. Speaking about the potential shock plot denouement, Lena said: "I kind of loved doing that because I thought it would've served her differently."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@iamlenaheadey_) on

Cersei had become pregnant with Jaime's child but had spent much of the final season convincing Euron Greyjoy that the unborn child was his, but it turns out Cersei wasn't pregnant at all.

The miscarriage would have arrived at the end of season seven. Lena has always been outspoken about Cersei's tame fate, and how it wasn't the dream death she had envisioned for one of the show's most cruel characters.

Speaking to The Guardian, Lena revealed: "I will say I wanted a better death. Obviously you dream of your death. You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted."

She explained; "But I just think they couldn't have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb."

Numerous accounts of conflict between the stars and director against the show's creators David Benioff and D B Weiss have been reported since the show ended.

Speaking to IndieWire, director Miguel Sapochnik said that he hoped the Battle of Winterfell would play out very differently; "I wanted to kill everyone. I wanted to kill Jorah in the horse charge at the beginning. I was up for killing absolutely everyone.

"I wanted it to be ruthless, so that in the first 10 minutes, you say, ‘All bets are off; anyone could die.' And David and Dan didn't want to. There was a lot of back-and-forth on that." he continued.

There has been a massive amount of backlash against DW Weiss and David Benioff since season eight aired, but the two lads have stood firm.

Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio is officially in talks with the BBC over new episodes of the hit drama show, and we are SQUEALING.

Series one depicted a traumatised British war veteran turned security officer attempting to guard the UK Home Secretary, with some romantic friction involved.

The first season was the BCC's most-watched show since 2008, and later became a huge success on Netflix in the US. It's now looking like a second series could be well on its way.

Though the show hasn't yet been given the green light for season two by the BCC, Mercurio has confirmed that he's in conversation with the broadcaster over the show's renewal.

At a keynote event at Banff World Media Festival in Canada, the writer said; "We’re in talks. We’re going through the logistics of it."

Mercurio was shocked at the level of success which Bodyguard garnered, despite the stellar cast; “I know there’s an adage that your failure should be surprising. But the level of success was surprising,” he said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Richard Madden (@maddenrichard) on

It's been reported that lead actor Richard Madden, of Game of Thrones fame, spoke to Mercurio months ago about the next season.

Madden went on to win a Golden Globe for his incredible performance as David Budd, defender of Keeley Hawes and heart throb of our lives. 

“We never intended to make another one and I don’t know, I’m excited to see what he’s got, especially because David had quite a busy couple of months,” Madden told the MailOnline in November.

His acting skills haven't just won him awards, Madden is now rumoured to be a front-runner for the James Bond role after Daniel Craig steps down.

With the death of a major character, season two is set to be a dramatic change in terms of the plot-line.

When it comes to dating, finding someone with similar interests to you can often be hugely important. Especially when those interests include magical worlds, fantastic creatures and beasts, and cruel deaths.

Game of Thrones fans and Harry Potter lovers are often pretty…intense…when it comes to their appreciation of the world-famous novels and franchises. It makes sense that they'd have a lot in common.

A study has taken place at the University of Oklahoma, where researchers analysed over 400 readers (male and female) and measured their exposure to various fiction genres, and the results are vital for your fantasy-fuelled love lives.

Image: HBO

The attitudes of the participants towards gender roles and sexual behaviour were also studied, and we are loving this form of science. 

The readers were tested on their exposure to seven different genres- classics, contemporary literary fiction, romance, fantasy, science fiction, thriller, and horror. They were also asked for their views on a series of toxic beliefs about relationships.

These beliefs included quips such as: "disagreement is destructive", "mind-reading is expected", "romantic partners cannot change", "the sexes are different" and "the expectation of sexual perfection".

The respondents were told to explain to which degree they agreed or disagreed with the alternating statements. All in the name of love.

Image: YouTube

The study is called. 'What you read and what you believe: Genre exposure and beliefs about relationships' and was published in the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts journal.

The results found that people who had the most exposure to fantasy genres and sci-fi had the healthiest beliefs about how loving relationships should function.

We bet Dumbledore gave some decent wisdom about Tinder swiping.

Interestingly, readers who enjoyed fantasy and science fiction novels were "less likely to support the belief that disagreement is destructive". Fighting can be a healthy way to air grievances, even if it's with a wand or a sword…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Comic-Con International (@sdcc_2019) on

Fans of the fantasy genre were also less likely to hold "the belief that partners cannot change, the belief that sexes are different, and the belief that mind-reading is expected in relationships". 

Stephanie C. Stern led the research team at the University of Oklahoma, and wrote of their findings; "Individuals who scored higher for exposure to science fiction and fantasy were less likely to endorse four unrealistic relationship beliefs."

Even Jon Snow realised that having a fling with your aunt is a little too unorthodox for him, but Cersei and Jaime endorse the incest vibe.

Ron and Hermione bickered their way through the HP franchise, but made peace in the end with a big sloppy kiss after destroying a Horcrux. Seems like a good way to find love?
