‘Jack Taylor’ Season 4 Is Coming To Acorn TV

 
It has been a while since a new season of the crime drama, “Jack Taylor” premiered. The third and to-date latest season initially aired back in 2016. Well, a time table has been set for the release date of Season 4! Jack Taylor is coming back via Acorn TV and within the next 9 months.

The private eye will return for a fourth season sometime this year on the streaming service, Acorn TV. An exact premiere date (month and day) has not been announced yet, as 2019 is the current projection according to the streamer. Season 4 will continue following Iain Glen’s charismatic character as he battles issues both personal and professional.

The season, like its previous, will be comprised of three (3) feature-length episodes. In other words, three movies! Knowing that Jack Taylor will be back and within the definitive time frame of 2019 is phenomenal news. The series underwent some massive changes in Season 3. While missed, the show managed to not only survive but thrive in spite of them.

For those who may have yet to catch up on the series, a little background information. Jack Taylor stars “Game of Thrones” scene-stealer Iain Glen as the gruff yet loveable eponymous detective. An ex-cop, the story follows Jack as he works in the private sector of Galway, Ireland.

He investigates a different crime in each episode. Jack has been aided in those investigations by two different and equally loveable sidekicks, one in the first two seasons and a new one in Season 3. All the while sharing a complicated relationship with Officer Kate Noonan, his former colleague in the police force (Gardai) who tends to help him out.

Of note are some casting changes that take place with that role. Nora-Jane Noone plays Kate in the first two seasons. Siobhán O’Kelly took over the part in Season 3.

As stated above, episodes of “Jack Taylor” are feature-film length, so they are more like TV movies than a traditional episodic drama that runs from 45 minutes to an hour. As of now, there is the equivalent of nine movies streaming. The series is an adaptation of Ken Bruen’s bestselling crime fiction novels.

Iain Glen truly gets a chance to shine front and center as the ornery, complex lead. As he does on “Game of Thrones,” Glen has tremendous chemistry with all of his co-stars and the character of Jack Taylor provides him with multiple layers to play.

The way the mysteries are approached adds to the series’ quality. While in pursuit of solving them, the show never loses sight of its troubled character. They do tend to trend towards the darker side of things, so keep that in mind. This is a much more intense series than Tom Selleck’s also-entertaining “Jesse Stone” series.

As someone who binged the entire series (so far), shortly after Season 3 started streaming, Jack has been sorely missed. To know that he will be back sometime this year is a great comfort. However, nebulous that timeline may be, it is a release date that puts a definitive expectation on things. Cannot wait to have Jack back!

You can currently watch Seasons 1 through 3 of “Jack Taylor” on Acorn TV.

Daenerys’ Last Words To Jorah On ‘Game Of Thrones’ Were The Perfect Farewell

 

Jorah died a hero’s death during the Battle of Winterfell, but Daenerys’ loyal advisor and friend made one final appearance during Sunday night’s episode as the survivors paid their respects to those who had fallen. But along with all the tears that were shed, Dany whispered last words to Jorah on Game of Thrones during his final few moments of screen time. However, viewers were unable to hear what exactly it was that she said to him, surrounding that heartfelt goodbye with tinge of mystery. Luckily, actor Iain Glen, who played Ser Jorah on the series, opened up about that scene during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly and hinted a bit about what it was that his costar Emilia Clarke actually said to him in that moment.

It turns out that whatever it was that Clarke said, was something that she herself was able to decide upon on her own. In the script, no actual words were given for her to say. According to EW, there was a line in the stage directions that read something to the effect of: “Daenerys whispers something to him that he’ll never hear and we’ll never know…” So it was entirely up to Clarke how she wanted to approach that final farewell. Did she say something sentimental to Glen? Did she crack a joke to help cut the tension or lighten the mood? They are friends in real life after all, so it’s not completely out of the question.

Here’s the thing, though: the whole point of that intimate interaction was so that these characters could have something exist just between the two of them, without anyone else being a part of it — including fans. So naturally, Glen didn’t want to just come out and say what it was that Clarke whispered to him, but he did tease the sentiment behind the words.

“It’s something entirely sincere and true to the moment and something that I’ll never forget,” Glen told EW. And while he knows that this is a question that fans will continue to ask him for many years to come, the actor is ready and willing to keep this little piece of information entirely to himself, adding: “I’ll always cherish it because it’s something no one will ever know but the two of us. And that’s a memory to hold onto.”

With that in mind, it’s safe to say Clarke wasn’t attempting to make Glen laugh with any silly anecdote or anything while this scene was being filmed. Perhaps Clarke told Glen what a pleasure it had been working with him for all of these years. Or maybe she remained in character during this off-mic moment and had Dany promise Jorah that his death wouldn’t be in vain, or that her victory of the Iron Throne would be done in his honor.

As of now, Clarke and Glen are staying mum on the details, but maybe over time the truth of what she said will finally be revealed. (Or maybe if we’re lucky, Dany told Jon Snow about it — lord knows that guy can’t keep a secret to save his life.) Fans may learn what those last words were at some point, but for the time being it’s just one more Game of Thrones mystery that needs to be solved.

Curtain Call: Iain Glen

 

Among the many victims of the Night King’s assault on Winterfell was none other than Ser Jorah Mormont, one of the longest running characters on Game of Thrones and Daenerys Targaryen’s loyal right hand. Portrayed by veteran Scottish actor Iain Glen, Ser Jorah was put through the ringer in service to the queen he loved, and although that love was never returned in quite the way he wanted, Jorah appeared to die a happy man, having found redemption serving a woman he felt worthy of the Iron Throne. Like his character, Glen’s steady performance never wavered in quality, and for that, we thank him.

Appearing in the very first episode of the show, Jorah quickly ensconced himself at Daenerys’ side, providing a friendly bridge between her homeland of Westeros and her adopted land of Essos. Glen’s weathered but trustworthy face put audience members and Daenerys at ease, but unfortunately, he wasn’t always the loyal knight he would become. At the start, Jorah was informing on Dany for King Robert Baratheon.

But Jorah would soon come to love Daenerys and abandon any work for the Iron Throne, even defending Dany from an assassination attempt midway through the first season. Likewise, it was Jorah, and Jorah alone, who would defend Dany when Khal Drogo died of an infected wound. Glen’s cool and collected confrontation with one of Drogo’s bloodriders was a lesson in staying calm in the face of danger.

 

Season 2 saw Jorah confess his feelings for Daenerys while helping her navigate the viper pit that was Qarth, feelings that were never reciprocated. Glen’s steady performance, now mixed with an awkward longing for Daenerys, was one of the few highlights of that storyline. Glen and Emilia Clarke worked very well together, and the often unspoken tension between the characters made even their mundane conversations worth watching. Jorah’s interactions with the mysterious Quaithe were also a highlight.

Things would pick up for Ser Jorah in season 3, as Dany set about liberating Slaver’s Bay. Suddenly, Glen got to play off two new additions to Daenerys’ inner circle: Ser Barristan Selmy and Daario Naharis. Both were rivals of sorts for Jorah, Barristan because he could tell Dany about Westeros and Daario because Dany was enamored of him. Through it all, Glen projected confidence, but still made sure we could see the insecurity gnawing at his insides.

But Jorah was always Dany’s most trusted adviser, at least until she found out about his early spying and exiled him from her presence. Their confrontation in the throne room of Meereen was painful to watch, as Jorah is clearly desperate beyond measure to stay by Dany’s side. Glen shines here, as does Clarke, and Jorah’s subsequent exile left us all saddened for the aging knight.

Jorah rebounded in season 5, capturing Tyrion in Volantis before returning to Meereen to present his gift to Dany. In the process, Jorah would contract greyscale, a seemingly incurable skin disease, that would drive him for the next couple of seasons. He comes before Dany again and is once again banished, but like any good stalker hopeless romantic, Jorah never takes no for an answer. Battling in the gladiator games of Meereen, Jorah is in a perfect spot to protect Dany when the Sons of the Harpy attack. Glen’s glare switches from hopeful to furious at the sight of someone attacking Daenerys. Him launching a spear into the gallery is a highlight of a very exciting sequence.

Season 6 saw Jorah set off alongside Daario to rescue Daenerys, and while their adventures are fun, it’s his reunion with Daenerys, and her subsequent decree that he find a cure for his greyscale, that is the high point of Jorah’s season 6 arc. Finally, he and his queen are reconciled. Likewise, while his interactions with Samwell Tarly at the Citadel in season 7 were enjoyable, as was his expedition north of the Wall, it’s Glen’s scenes with Clarke that are again outstanding, particularly when Jorah arrives on Dragonstone cured of greyscale.

 

Season 8 wasn’t heavy on the Jorah front; his conversation with Daenerys regarding Tyrion and Sansa was essentially a signal that his character would not be long for Westeros. Before he went however, Glen would deliver one last epic performance, defending Clarke from the army of the dead, refusing to die himself until his beloved khaleesi was safe from harm.

Glen’s performance is never better than when he’s acting opposite Clarke, and much the same could be said of her. The pair had a chemistry rare on Thrones in that it lasted virtually the entire series.

Jorah final moment came in “The Last of the Starks,” where he was one body of many set alight following the Battle of Winterfell. Daenerys whispered something into his ear. The script was left blank, allowing Clarke to come up with the dialogue herself. Glen was mum on what she said, telling Entertainment Weekly only that, “It’s something entirely sincere and true to the moment and something that I’ll never forget.”

Iain Glen ‘snogged’ by Game of Thrones fans

‘Game of Thrones’ star Iain Glen always gets “snogged” by fans in the street.

The 57-year-old actor – who has son Finlay, 25, with ex-wife Susannah Harker and daughters Mary, 11, and Juliet, seven, with partner Charlotte Emmerson – finds it bizarre that women “attack” him and just want to “hold” him when they see him out and about.

He said: “They’ll attack you. They’ll just grab you and start snogging you without invitation. They just want to hold you.”

But the ‘Game of Thrones’ actor – who bowed out of his role as Ser Jorah Mormont on Sunday’s (28.04.19) episode of the fantasy drama series – has found a way to dodge the unwanted attention and tries to travel by bicycle whenever he can.

He told Esquire.com: “I don’t know what it is. They stop looking. They don’t associate actors with bicycles. So [I] just always sneak out the back, get a bicycle, and find a hickey restaurant on the outskirts of town. That’s my modus operandi.”

Jorah died protecting his beloved queen, Daenerys Targaryen, during the Battle of Winterfell in this week’s episode and Iain is “very happy” with the journey his former slave trader alter ego has been on.

He said: “I feel very happy with his story arc. When we read all six episodes before we started at the beginning, in a big room in Northern Ireland – Belfast – I thought the writers had managed it incredibly well and thoroughly, in terms of looking after everyone.

“It’s one of the hard things when you write big, sweeping, epic dramas like this. How do you look after everyone’s storyline, individually?”

In season five, Jorah contracted deadly greyscale and as the disease spread, Iain had to spend increasing time getting prosthetics fitted before filming, taking up to eight hours a day at its peak.

But despite leaving him sleep deprived, the actor didn’t mind – because it reminded him of taking drugs.

He said: “It was like coming in at midnight and being ready to shoot at eight, to then do the ten-hour day.

“It reminded me of some of the drugs I’ve taken. At university, I was pretty spaced out–but in a nice, helpful, acting way.”

Iain Describes “The Long Night” as the Hardest Sequence They Shot Over 8 Seasons

The actor who plays Daenerys’ right-hand man Jorah Mormont reflects on the battle’s outcome, and watching an 11-week night shoot come together in the midst of his own personal trials.

HBO: What was your initial reaction to seeing how the final season unfolds?

Iain Glen: On the whole, I thought [creators] Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] had really excelled in shaping the final endgame. It was always a concern with Game of Thrones how many different storylines and worlds can be sustained through the course of a season, and that became less of a problem with these later seasons because we were all beginning to overlap. But then it became an issue of giving everyone a proper sendoff and journey that meets audiences’ hopes and expectations. When I first read it I went through a real range of emotions.

One thing I think all actors do, when you first get the scripts, you flick to the first page of each one where they list who is in the episode. I saw Episode 1, Episode 2, absolutely, Episode 3, yep there I am it’s all good… and then oh no, chances are I’ve copped it, I’m a goner. So that filled me with a great sense of loss. But I tried to remain patient, and over the course of reading the episodes, it felt right. I felt at peace with it. Because in some ways Jorah has been offering himself, his life, to Daenerys for six or seven seasons. So there was a completeness to it. And also, it was an ending, instead of having that sense of, “Oh I wonder what happens to these people going forward.” Having a beginning, middle and end, it satiates. And the way it was described on the page was very moving and affecting.

HBO: Jorah has always been one of Dany’s most trusted advisors, and he gives her two suggestions early in this season: to forgive Tyrion and make friends with Sansa. Why do these feel important?

Iain Glen: Whatever you say about Jorah, one of his good qualities was that Dany’s best interests were always paramount; in many ways he put that ahead of any self-fulfillment. Jorah realizes that people do need to compromise and come together. He’s very persuaded that Tyrion has Dany’s best interest at heart. He trusts him. With Sansa, he’s trying to encourage a unified front and stop any instinct Dany might have to separate herself. He feels quite strongly that’s not the way to win the war.

HBO: We finally got to see Jorah have a scene with another Mormont in “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.” What was it like working with Bella Ramsey?

Iain Glen: It was a lovely scene to do, she’s such a fine wee actress. One of the delicious things about Thrones, is that these characters who may be connected by lineage or family have been kept lands apart — and it takes eight seasons for people to come together. In the show I never interacted my father [Jeor Mormont] so it was lovely to interact with someone from the same house. She’s a very fiery character. It was funny, and there’s an edge of humor to it; you realize she’s not going to be moved or affected by whatever Jorah says to her, she’s going to be pursuing her path, which is a quality Jorah has too, but he can’t recognize in himself.

“I just wanted to hold it all in my head: what had been basically 10 years of my life.”

HBO: What was it like shooting “The Long Night”?

Iain Glen: It was probably as hard a sequence as we’ve ever shot over the eight-plus years. One aspect of Thrones I’ve always loved is the awesome scale of it. I still feel like a kid on the most extraordinary adventure when I walk onto set, and this was that in spades. I loved being a part of it.

I really recognized that as actors we are the one element within the crew that does not need to be there all day, every day. It was 11 weeks of night shoots, and it was a moving night shoot where they had to adjust with the moon. Part of the dynamic of the episode was the elements, so it had to be cold, dirty, snowy, and windy, but as actors at least we were coming and going. Nevertheless, those weeks I was involved were really hard. An episode like that is really where all the great skills of all the craftsmen, artists, and various departments of the show really have to do their best work, because it’s such a mammoth task to put it all together. I’ve got undying admiration for [director] Miguel Sapochnik and the crew and the way it was put together.

HBO: How about your final fight?

Iain Glen: It was spread over two nights and involved a big fire element. The first night we were set to shoot we had really high winds, so there was a fire issue, but they were going to try and resolve it. I had been waiting for half the season to do what was for me one of the most important scenes. My wife was in dress rehearsal for a play that night, and I rang her to say, “break a leg” and there was no reply so I left a message. And then I was called to set to rehearse the scene, and when I went back, I got a message from her saying she was in the hospital —  she had suffered a brain hemorrhage. The nature of it, after it was all said and done, means it’s never going to happen again, and she’s fully recovered, but I was completely on the floor at the time, a total mess.

And of course there was a connection with Emilia [Clarke, who plays Daenerys], who I know has spoken publicly about her medical issues, and she was brilliant, and she, Miguel and [executive producer] Bernie Caulfield told me to go, get on a flight. We came back two weeks later, and they had all the elements in place, and conditions were good, and it felt like the right time to do it. It was my last scene of the episode, and it was a pretty amazing night. It felt like the right ending for Jorah.

HBO: That’s an incredibly emotional situation to be put in on top of an already emotional performance…what was it like for you once you wrapped?

Iain Glen: It was a very weird and lonely sensation. Once I was done, I just wanted to get out. I just wanted to hold it all in my head: what had been basically 10 years of my life. A massive slice of my working life, and in many ways the most important thing I’ve ever done.

HBO: We’re going to miss Jorah standing by Dany’s side. If he were with her for the rest of the season, what advice would he give?

Iain Glen: Try and find compromise with those people who can help your cause, and try and find forgiveness where you need it.
