Daniel Vincent Gordh speaks to Hypable exclusively about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, the reaction to Dizzie Day and that kiss, on-screen chemistry, and more.

Last Thursday the Lizzie Bennet Diaries fandom exploded when Lizzie and Darcy finally locked lips. Once we had recovered, we decided we had to speak to the man behind the bowtie, Daniel Vincent Gordh himself. We were lucky enough to speak to Gordh as part of our series of Lizzie Bennet Diaries interviews. In the first part of our interview, find out how he felt on Dizzie Day and Darcy Day, how he and co-star Ashley Clements developed that sizzling onscreen chemistry, and much more.

Hypable’s interview with Daniel Vincent Gordh:

Hypable: There was a huge fan response to Dizzie Day, or episode 98. How did that feel?

Daniel Vincent Gordh: I feel like every step of the way with this project I just feel grateful, because I have been acting for a long time and it’s hard to get people to care about something that you do, as much as people do about this. It wasn’t a surprise how people reacted, but the overwhelming feeling was of gratitude, which some people have noticed was the same as the title of the episode.

It was definitely the craziest day in terms of fans reaching out to me. The numbers on the video with the likes and views were wild, which also makes sense because we’re at a part where the viewership of the show is bigger than ever before. More people are along for the journey now than ever. But what that meant was that, in terms of the internet reaction, the volume of it was insane.

For me, I wasn’t surprised. I felt that everyone had a right to go as crazy as they wanted in terms of how they reacted to it, because they’ve been along for the ride with the show for a year now, basically, and this is the moment everyone has been waiting for. Not in terms of the kiss specifically, the kiss is emblematic of a story moment for Lizzie. They were very patient to get to that point, so it was a big release it felt like, of anticipation that has been building up for over a year. It was like super Christmas.

For you personally, how did that compare with Darcy Day?

It was very different for me personally because I have now been involved for so much longer than I was that first day. That first day, on what is now called Darcy Day and was my first appearance on the show, it was a similar kind of release of anticipation, because we kind of did it to them twice. For me it was different because I knew what to expect.

The first day, I was just introduced to everyone, and I was much more overwhelmed, and much more an innocent so to speak. I felt like it was my first day at school. And this time I was able to take a step back, and not have that perspective of “Oh, what’s happening to me?” and more look at how the fans were reacting to the story.

We are in the last week of the show now, and you were in the preview for episode 99. I’ve seen the fans try to lipread what you’re saying.

I don’t think they’ve ever gotten it right.

I don’t think so either but it’s always so funny. It’s great to watch.

And I’m not blaming them, it’s hard to lipread.

Anyone who received a mole or rat Patronus in J.K. Rowling’s new quiz is getting a little reassurance from the Harry Potter author.

Last week Pottermore took the fandom by storm when they debuted the long-awaited Patronus quiz. It’s a next-level personality quiz — it’s beautiful and provides a real sense of magic. Overall, we love it!

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

Over the weekend Rowling fielded a couple of complaints by offering the upside to getting a rat or mole Patronus.

Rat Patronus explanation:

Mole Patronus explanation:

All told, there are over 140 Patronuses. Can she get to work on writing reassuring comments on every single one of ’em?

In a press release announcing the Patronus quiz, Pottermore said that “further new information and features will be revealed about the spell and its outcomes” in the “months to come.” Hopefully that means we really are getting detailed explanations.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con, Hypable caught up with Game of Thrones actress Kerry Ingram for a chat about Shireen’s horrific death scene, Netflix, and horseback riding.

It seemed like a full-circle moment when I got to sit down with Kerry Ingram and tell her just how much Shireen Baratheon’s death upset me. Even on a show like Game of Thrones, which makes an art out of assaulting its viewers’ senses, that particular scene felt like it crossed a line — and that was just my reaction, watching safely from behind a computer screen! How must the actress herself feel, having to actually act out her character’s death at such a young age?

This led to a wider musing about what Game of Thrones does to protect its child actors from the horrific things their characters experience. (Ingram is now 17, but was only barely in her mid-teens when that scene was filmed.) I also wondered if she ever went back and watched the scene. Turned out she watched it live with the rest of us — but, luckily, she was able to find the fun side of the situation: Outraged reactions like my own. The irony is sweet.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con 2016 I got to ask Kerry Ingram all this and more, while also diving into more fun topics like Shireen and Arya’s hypothetical take-over of Westeros, and Ingram’s new Netflix series, on which she plays ‘Becky with the good hair’ and gets to do lots of horseback riding. Watch the full interview below:

Ingram’s new Netflix series stars Jaylen Barron as Zoë, a 15-year-old American girl whose stay at Bright Field Stables in the U.K. leads her to form an unexpected friendship with a mysterious horse named Raven.

The Lime Pictures drama also stars Celine Buckens and Natalie Gumede. It was created by Anna McCleery and Vicki Lutas, and is tentatively expected to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

The cast of Will and Grace reunited this week to take on the 2016 Presidential Election.

Update: After a couple of days filled with agonizing teases, and just a hour before the first Presidential Debate, the Will & Grace reunion is now online! Watch the 10-minute episode below, taking on this year’s Presidential Election:

It’s the first “new episode” of Will & Grace since the finale in May 2006. Our hearts!

Original story: Will! Grace! Jack! Karen! Hot Food! Wait, what was that last one? The cast of Will and Grace got together this week to presumably to film a super-secret project. Are we finally getting that full cast reunion special? A reboot? A Christmas special? What does it mean?

http://reginalinetti.co.vu/post/140839408391/will-grace-gifs-58

The pictures began to pour in from all four of the cast members earlier this weekend with a few couple shots and one of the entire cast followed shortly.

The first few images made our hearts flutter and our eyes water, but then more photos were posted and it seems that the sweet reunion was more than just a few friends gathering for the fun of it. Something is coming. Something big.

Eric McCormack’s script here says, “Hot Food.” Similarly, on Sean Hayes’ Instagram, a picture featuring the same title was posted with the name “Fred” underneath.

Other photos, namely those of Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, look as if they were shot on the rebuilt set of 9C. Be still my heart. Be still.

With very little to go on, some of our early guesses include a video filmed in support of a charity or, more likely, an announcement that the entire series is going to available for streaming on either Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. The series is currently not available online.

Whatever the news turns out to be, it was a great weekend to be a Will and Grace fan!

Stay tuned for more information after the announcement arrives!
