冰與火之歌演員八卦大公開

什麼?瑟曦曾因試鏡「潛規則」丟失角色  What? Cersei lost roles for not flirting.

飾演瑟曦的琳娜‧海蒂 (Lena Headey) 在與梅西‧威廉斯 (Maisie Williams) 對談中,透露她曾經在試鏡中因不和對方調情而喪失演出。

She said: “When I was in my twenties,and doing a lot of audition tapes in the States,a casting director told me: 'The men take these tapes home and watch them and say,'Who would you f*ck?'

她說:「當時我二十幾歲,在美國參加許多錄影帶試鏡。一位選角導演告訴我:這些人會把錄影帶帶回家看。然後問我『你會跟誰上床?』」

琳娜‧海蒂公開這種莫名的潛規則 (Unspoken rules),也凸顯了女性在職場上的地位不平等。更別說最近出現已久的「Mansplaining」(直男癌說教、男性說教)。就連女星珍妮佛‧勞倫斯、臉書營運長雪柔‧桑德伯格都曾表示同工不同酬 (Gender pay gap)、女性領導就是強勢 (Strong、Aggressive、Pushy)等刻板印象。

A woman has to say the same thing ten times,but a man says it once and everybody listens.

同一件事女性得說上十次,大家才會聽;但男性只需要說一次。

再來聽聽這個小故事:一位男上司誤用女同事的信箱,發現性別歧視的嚴重性

Nicole and I worked for a small employment service firm and one complaint always came from our boss: She took too long to work with clients. As her supervisor,I considered this a minor nuisance at best. I figured the reason I got things done faster was from having more experience. So one day I'm emailing a client back-and-forth about his resume and he is just being IMPOSSIBLE. Rude,dismissive,ignoring my questions. Telling me his methods were the industry standards (they weren't) and I couldn't understand the terms he used (I could).

妮可和我在一家小型人力仲介公司工作,但我們的老闆總是抱怨她花太多時間處理客戶。身為她的上司,我頂多當作是小問題處理。我原以為自己做事效率較好是因為經驗豐富的關係。有一天我為了處理一位客戶的履歷,不斷跟他互相來信,他的反應實在不可理喻,他的態度無禮、輕視,還無視我的提問。只告訴我他的方法是業界標準 (明明不是),還用那些我聽不懂的術語 (我懂)。

Anyway I was getting sick of his shit when I noticed something. Thanks to our shared inbox,I'd been signing all communications as "Nicole"

正當我被他搞得身心俱疲時,我發現了一件事。感謝我用到了她的信箱,郵件上都是署名Nicole。

By the time she could get clients to accept that she knew what she was doing,I could get halfway through another client.

等到她還在讓客戶相信她知道自己在做什麼時,我可能已經在處理下一位客戶的事了。

《冰與火之歌》資料遭洩!  Game of Thrones data leak

Hackers claimed to have obtained 1.5 terabytes of data from the company. So far,an upcoming episode of Ballers and Room 104 have apparently been put online. There is also written material that’s allegedly from next week’s fourth episode of Game of Thrones. More is promised to be “coming soon.”

駭客表示已從公司內部竊取1.5TB的資料。目前即將播出的影集《好球天團》以及《104號房》也已遭公布網路,還包括《冰與火之歌》下周即映的第四集內容手稿。駭客聲稱即將曝光更多內容。

遭駭事件讓大家議論紛紛,來聽聽這名網友的評論:

I'd be more worried about an HBO hack that leaked user data,such as credit card info for payments through HBO Go.

我比較擔心HBO遭駭會洩漏使用者的資料,例如我們使用付費程式HBO Go時填入的信用卡資訊。
