Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has become the star of a short movie directed by Baz Luhrmann as part of the new Chanel No. 5 advertising campaign. The Brazilian beauty is featured surfing at the beach and running through the streets at night on a quest to find true love, before she locks lips with Game of Thrones hunk Michiel Huisman.
Gushing about his leading lady in the three-and-a-half minute film, Luhrmann says, "Gisele, in her own DNA, comes from a new world sensibility. I think that's both fresh, but very true to (Chanel founder) Coco Chanel. Coco was 100 per cent a self-empowered woman."
The Great Gatsby director adds, "(Bundchen) can be incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. She has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery.
"What's most important to her, and I think I'm not out of line saying this, is love. That's what we try to convey in this little film."
Bundchen, who is married to American football star Tom Brady, has previously flexed her acting muscles with appearances in 2004 movie Taxi and in The Devil Wears Prada in 2006.
Luhrmann is no stranger to the Chanel No. 5 marketing campaign - he previously worked with Nicole Kidman for another short film in 2004.
If you haven’t heard of Orphan Black, our first question for you is, "What rock have you been living under?" The BBC America sci-fi series premiered roughly a year ago but it has acquired a cult following that could rival Battlestar Galactica fandom. From insisting the show’s star Tatiana Maslany was snubbed by both the Golden Globes and the Emmys to speading the word of the 10-episode first season to everyone and their mother, it’s been hard to escape the hype around Orphan Black.
Now that the show’s second season is about a month away from premiering, however, we need to talk about whether Orphan Black will suffer from a sophomore slump or come back better than ever.
The 30-second trailer, released by Space, recaps the first year effectively — and offers many words of praise given to Orphan Black during its debut season. However, for clips from the new season, it’s best to check out Orphan Black’s Instagram.
The short clips preview a new character, played by Michiel Huisman, as well as some new information about Rachel — the supposed original — through her interactions with Cosima and Paul. There will be changing loyalties, abductions, and hopefully some more answers about the mysterious illness that Katya introduced in Season 1.
It seems Season 2 will delve more into the biology and history of the clones, and hopefully we’ll get some answers to questions from the first season. Whether it will live up to the hype or not, we’ll have to wait and see, but we have faith that season two will be just as epic as season one.
And most importantly: Felix will return in all his snarky, hilarious glory. So season two of Orphan Black is bound to be amazing.
Actor Michiel Huisman has joined the cast of Game Of Thrones for the upcoming fourth season. The World War Z star will reportedly replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, a Tyroshi fighter who has a love affair with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
News of Huisman's casting first surfaced on Instagram.com, after his trainer posted a photo of him working out to prepare for the role. The post was subsequently deleted.
