JOEL KINNAMAN Whether as the sinister, streetwise Detective Holder in The Killing or the supremely charismatic and formidable Governor Conway in House of Cards, there’s one thing we can all agree on about Joel Kinnaman—the Swedish-born actor is extremely flexible in his craft and can throw down some impressive acting démarches through a variety of roles. Reductive as it may sound, Kinnaman’s appeal as an actor largely lies in this very versatility as someone who can dissolve his ego and subsume his character’s persona to the fullest, which gives breathing room for the litheness of his craft to play out so well in such varying genres. As he prepares for the release of Suicide Squad, one of his biggest film projects to date, we talk to him about his journey into acting, what keeps him from creatively burning out, and some humiliating but laughable experiences on set.

DEBORAH ANN WOLL When it comes to fandom, television has never played a bigger role than it does now. For example, “binge-watching” exists as a real term in the Oxford Dictionary. To “Netflix and Chill” for an entire weekend has become the new normal. And every now and again, a special series comes along that makes a Fangirl out of all of us. Or in this instance, a very special actress who has become a tour de force in the world of sci-fi and fantasy. Deborah Ann Woll is a classic beauty whose most prominent roles on True Blood and Daredevil blur the lines between reality and fantasy. Her depth and incredible range brings complexity to the characters she plays. For those of us who have become fans of her work, Deborah Ann Woll is queen.

IWAN RHEON In case you’ve been living under the rock for the past six years, Iwan Rheon plays the maliciously disturbing Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones and is arguably the most hated man on television today. He makes torture and cruelty look pleasurable, inflicting some of his flagrant abuses with a boyish glee on his face. But more importantly, Rheon has become the emblem of the show’s darkest impulses.

JULIAN MORRIS Julian Morris is going to take Hollywood by storm but he just doesn’t know it yet. You may not be very familiar with his work on the big screen but watch this space come 2017.  However, if you’re an avid television fan like we are, you may recognise Julian from his previous roles in several primetime network shows.

EDGAR RAMIREZ All I can hear over the phone is Ramirez's baritone 'umm' that lasts a good amount of time. In the end he decides to come back to it later and affably asks for the second question. All throughout our lengthy chat, I though it was very gracious that he never once implied impatience or tried to hurry things along. Instead he carefully measured every response and made sure to namedrop the entire supporting cast of writers, directors and fellow thespians that have enabled his journey thus far as mentors and inspiration.

SCOOT MCNAIRY What's your regular day? What's your routine? I wake up in the morning and i have a cup of coffee, thats about the only thing that is routine. I wake up with an open mind every morning cause you never know what the day is going to throw at you. So its hard to have a routine. I just try to not stop moving and if I feel like I have time I will go for a ride on the motorcycle.

MUSIC

YUNA Yuna is in a happy place. Her new album Chapters marks her re-emergence into the music scene as she takes on a radical departure from her indie folk sound and dips her toes into the sultry pool of contemporary R&B. The profound change suits her well and growing up certainly has its perks. Chapters is a no holds barred album, inspired by a wrecked real-life relationship as Yuna draws the strength to bare her soul, displaying a rare vulnerability her audience yearns for. Her distinctive honeyed vocals are unabashedly laced with newfound confidence, further reinforced through a musical kinship as she collaborates with other powerhouses such as Usher and Jhené Aiko in this new album which has found its way into Billboard’s Top 10.

ZELLA DAY Let’s be honest, there’s nothing quite like a good music festival. It’s all about that moment when the sun falls, a dusty breeze surrounds you and music fills the fiery desert sky. There’s a romance to it all; and music lovers will employ militant tactics to ensure they don’t miss it. With strategy and precision, they’ll make their way to a beer garden and jet across the fairgrounds just in time to catch the last 10 minutes of a set. Capturing that moment is everything.

SAM PALLADIO We heard that you have recently performed a solo show at the L.A. Troubadour and Stagecoach! 2016 seems to be going alright for you. How do you feel? I feel like I'm on a total music high. The Troubadour has such history to it and to be able to say I sold out my first headline show in L.A. there is so amazing! It was a magical night and I have to say it was a highlight of my music career so far. Stagecoach was also such a blast and I couldn't believe the amount of people that showed up for my set. I reckon about 8000.

KID INK Kid Ink isn’t a household name (yet), but you’ve heard his music at least once today. At 29 the young Los Angeles native is a veteran in the music industry.

Using everything that surrounds him as inspiration Kid Ink wants a long career in music, and isn’t afraid of the challenges or switching things around.

VANESSA PRAGER Vanessa, from a very young age, were you conscious of your talent? Not so much. I remember in my pre teens getting interested in wanting to draw and make things but the whole process was a later development relative to some other artists.
