Web Gem Wednesday: Boardwalk Gets Buzzed; GoT VFX; Newsroom Interviews

By Charlie Harwood on Sep 19, 2012 to HBO News

Web Gems is intended to give you an entertaining, and sometimes humorous, look at your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else. But also show us just how awesome they really are. My plan is to bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything is HBO related.

Boardwalk Empire Gets Buzzed
