Game Of Thrones Season 5. The Prettiest Is Melisandre. Why Is Evil So Attractive?

Carice van Houten as Melisandre in Game of Thrones

Game Of Thrones Season 5. The prettiest girl is Melisandre, the sorceress played by actress Carice van Houten. Why?

Game of Thrones Season 5 has started, and we have met our old friends. Handsome warriors, brave characters, bold children, perfidious women, wonderful dragons… Fantasy! But fantasy is nothing without a pretty innocent princess (this is Sansa Stark) and a desirable sorceress born from an eternal fire: Melisandre.

Melisandre is unknown. She appeases the wrath of Stannis Baratheon but is ambitious and cruel. She loves beauty but destroys cities and castles. She has compassion on Shireen but sends men burned alive. Who is Melisandre? Nobody knows a demon but one thing is sure, she is the prettiest woman you have ever seen, worthy of the Thousand and One Nights, worthy to reign over the gods of hell.

Actress Carice van Houten plays the role as Melisandre. In Game of Thrones Season 5, Melisandre is still more beautiful than in other seasons. Her skin is still more brilliant and her hair darker, like a sunset. Don’t you love her? Maybe she is not your favorite character, but you must recognize the elegance and sex appeal of the actress.

Carice Anouk van Houten is a Dutch actress and singer. She is best known for her role in Black Book (2006), the most commercially successful Dutch film to date, and internationally, she is also known for her works in films like Valkyrie (2008), Repo Men (2010), Black Death (2010).

“Playing evil is just not interesting. I don’t think anyone who does evil stuff thinks they’re doing evil stuff. That’s the scary part.” Carice van Houten.

Scary? Yes, we feel fear in front of the beautiful Melisandre, looking at her sophisticated face and perfect body. A demon with tails and horns is laughable, but a beautiful demon terrorizing us.

Is Melisandre reincarnation of the devil? Probably, but what is heaven without hell? We need Melisandre to understand the ideals of justice of other characters. She is one of the most important character on Game of Thrones Season 5.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
