Kit Harington may be forever imprinted in many minds as Jon Snow on 'Game of Thrones' a role which garnered the actor and producer a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor Television Series Drama in 2019 and two Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2019. After 'Game of Thrones', Harington went onto produce and star in the BBC drama series 'Gunpowder'. Harington's film career has included roles in the historical romance 'Pompeii' and the British period drama 'Testament of Youth'. He also lent his voice talents to the 'How to Train Your Dragon' franchise in which he has voiced the character Eret.
Tobias Menzies also a former 'Game of Thrones' star seems to have made it to every binge-worthy show of late. Besides his role as Edmure Tully on 'Game of Thrones' he is also known for playing "Black Jack" Randall on the hit show 'Outlander' which garnered him a Golden Globe Award nomination. He is also known for his role as Brutus on HBO's 'Rome' and more recently has impressed the audience and critics alike with his portrayal of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in the third and fourth seasons of 'The Crown', which earned him further nominations for a Golden Globe Award and a Primetime Emmy Award.
Minnie Driver's breakout role may have been in 'Circle of Friends' but it was her Academy award-nominated role in 'Good Will Hunting' that truly cemented her status as an international star. Driver also went onto have a critically successful run on television particularly with her performance in the series 'The Riches' for which she was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe. She has also starred in several other series such as 'About a Boy', 'Speechless' and had a recurring role on 'Will & Grace'.
Anna Paquin famously made her acting debut in 'The Piano' for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of 11, making her the second-youngest winner in Oscar history. Paquin has managed to continue her success into adulthood as well starring in films like 'Almost Famous', 'Jane Eyre', 'Amistad' and 'The Irishman'. However, it is her television career that has arguably been more successful in adulthood particularly her role as Sookie Stackhouse in the vampire drama series 'True Blood'. For her performance in the series, Paquin won the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama in 2009, and was nominated for an additional Golden Globe Award in 2010.
The voiceover in the trailer of Season 2 of 'Modern Love' tells us that love comes in all forms and proceeds to show us just how many forms we can expect from the second season of the hugely popular series. From a formerly married couple falling back in love with each other to two teenagers grappling with their sexuality to a couple out on their first dates in ages, at whatever stage of romance you may find yourself in there is bound to be something that speaks to you in the second season of 'Modern Love'.
