comment WWII Movie (what one is it?)
I doubt is was Hugh Jackman. ""It wasn't until I was 22 that I ever thought about my hobby (acting) being something I could make a living out of. .." He was born in 1968, so would have been 22 in 1990.

comment Why not use Red Woman to take down King's Landing?
All the key players? For the Baratheon/Lannister children that is Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen. Her 'blood sacrifice' from Stannis was apparently good for 3 deaths, and weakened him so much that she dare not use more of his blood (and went looking for other sons of kings for more). For that reason I think they had to make some hard choices.

comment Was this character from 'Better Call Saul' also in 'Breaking bad'?
Oh, she's only in one episode of BtVS. ..Dead Man's Party. It is way funny though, in that she has a 'significant role'.

In fact, that looks more like Nancy Lenehan who was in both Pleasantville and Buffy the Vampire Slayer though I don't recall her being in Breaking Bad..

It looks nothing like the skank from BB. She (Dale Dickey) was also in Iron Man 3 as the mother of one of the injured troops on Extremis and she has much more 'exaggerated' features than the woman seen here.
