Torchwood's Gareth David-Lloyd To Attend GeekedFest In August



GEEKEDFEST is coming to Newport Centre on 6th & 7th August and are excited to announce a local lad to the weekend with none other than the actor, singer, all-round great guy…Gareth David-Lloyd!

Gareth is well known in the TV circuit; he has an extensive list of appearances from TV to Theatre and even voice acting for the gaming industry. Gareth’s first appearance was in the TV show “Absolute Power” as Pope Idol. From then he starred in shows such as “Casualty”, “Mine all Mine” and “Beethoven”. In 2008 Gareth became the well-known “Ianto Jones” character in Doctor Who to then continue the role into Torchwood. After 38 episodes (he will be back though!) Gareth worked on “Waterloo Road” and “Holby City” to name a few and more recently in 2014 voiced the character “Solas” in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Phew!

Apart from being on-screen Gareth has appeared in many theatre shows and fronts the metal progressive bank “Blue Gillespie”.


This is Gareth’s first comic-con in his home-town and will be at GeekedFest all weekend available for autographs and photo-booth sessions. He is also supporting GeekedFests’ chosen charities Popsy and Ty Hafan. You can buy tickets to GEEKEDFEST online now at www.geekedfest.com. VIP tickets are only available until midnight 31st July.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
