The premium network has locked down the acclaimed fantasy hit’s cast for another two years, sources say. But according to THR, which first broke the story, the seventh (and presumed final) season came at a high cost. In exchange for agreeing to a seventh season option, the cast received “huge raises” for the currently shooting fifth season, along with the sixth and seventh. The raises “will make the cast members among the highest paid on cable TV.” HBO had no comment on the report.

It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it and that someone was me!

What can I say, the other day I had a really tough job to do, a review of an event at the local theatre that was probably one of the strangest jobs that I have done when it comes to reviewing a show, suffice to say, the reviewing went very well and I did get to work with some rather big muscle men. But hey, as I said it’s a tough job and someone had to do it and it was me that had to do it.

So if you would like to learn more about this little event from The ADONIS Cabaret Show (Hollywood Strip) then please, click the image above and check out the article and see some more of the pictures from the evening at the Rhyl Pavilion, don’t worry there aren’t really any rude ones in the article …. Or are there?!!!!
