Why Hollywood won't cast Laurent de Vere anymore 


If you’re looking for an example of a child celebrity who couldn’t cut it as an adult, look no further. The career of Laurent de Vere seemed to be set to shine for decades to come when he appeared in the critically acclaimed Ravenel at the young age of seven and took our breaths away with his performance. But, just like many other child stars, he has fallen before his rise to the cinematic stardom could even begin.

Before the success of Ravenel , de Vere was known as “the cute baby brother” of other child actor Auguste de Vere. According to their mother, the de Vere brothers were inseparable and Laurent would often hang out at the set while Auguste was filming. That was where he got noticed by a director and offered a role in Ravenel , a movie that turned out to be a worldwide box-office success. Little Laurent later proved that he was not just a one-movie-star and his talent shined in Acquitart , The Battle of Marlas and Green but for a Season in upcoming years. Critics and movie lovers praised him and promised him great heights, and not for nothing he was one of the highest paid child actors. But it seemed to be too much too soon for the young star and, after losing his family in a terrible plane crash, Laurent de Vere went on a downward spiral so extreme that not even The Council Studios could save the young star from destroying not only his own career but also every movie he touched. Scandals, PR messes, and never ending drama is what de Vere is known for nowadays.

What happened to Hollywood’s brightest star and why is his career is in shambles? Here are a few theories as to why Hollywood won't cast Laurent de Vere anymore.

Troubled teen
Being a teenager is not easy, especially if your puberty happens in front of cameras, but Laurent de Vere took it to the next level. We still remember the reports of his troublesome behaviour around the set of Arles, but it all exploded when  the movie was actually cancelled and the director Regent himself announced that he had“never met anyone so spoiled and difficult to work with as Laurent”, and promised that The Council Studios would never hire him again as “he is a curse for any movie set”. Those were big words from a big name director and, followed by horror stories from the cast and crew of Arles, they were the first nails in the coffin of Laurent’s career.

Box Office Poison
After young Laurent was dropped from The Council Studios it was hard to find anyone who would want to work with him. Seemingly out of desperation, he made some questionable choices and while nothing bad could be said about his acting, the movies he starred in during his late teens were critical and box office failures. So much so that people were wondering if Regent calling him “a curse” was more than a metaphor.

Nicaise, drugs and PR horror
When eleven year old actor Nicaise in an interview with Hollywood Life was asked what he loves the most about being famous, he answered “chalis”. The shocked reporter could only stare in horror as Nicaise explained that his costar Laurent was famous for using the drug to relax and so Nicaise had asked Laurent to share. While in the case of this horrific drug scandal Laurent ended up proven innocent by both LA police and Nicaise himself who later admitted to having lied, it was a PR nightmare and ruined another movie’s chance to shine. Chastillion was boycotted by many despite its good reviews and the fact that Laurent seemed to attract trouble didn't go unnoticed by both press and the industry.

Death of Aimeric Fortaine
If Laurent’s career had any chance of recovering when Nicaise came clean and some film industry members were willing to give him another chance, Laurent lost any love Hollywood had for him when his costar and nineteen-year-old actor Aimeric Fortaine killed himself. It wasn’t the suicide itself that caused the uproar but the fact that multiple sources reported a fight between Laurent and Aimeric that had reduced the younger actor to tears just hours before Aimeric was found dead. Aimeric’s grief-stricken father Guion told press all about how his son had been bullied by Laurent on and off the set for months, even implying that the suicide note named Laurent to blame. Laurent himself refused to comment but his management released a statement denying the awful  allegations, and while the Fortaine family never brought the case to court it was obvious where the general public stood on this one.

Lack of public life
We’ve all heard the saying “any publicity is better than no publicity”. While we’re not sure we could handle any more scandals involving Laurent, it’s been pointed out before that in Hollywood, your personality and personal life area part of the package. After all, fans need something to talk about! Laurent hid away from the spotlight after the tragic plane crash that killed his family and, of course, everyone understood his need to have some private time. But seven years later he still seems to drop off the Earth whenever he’s not on a movie set. There have been no girlfriends (or boyfriends!), reports of luxurious private properties and shiny cars, scandalous party photos, or even him casually walking a dog with a Starbucks cup in his hand at Calabasas. Laurent refuses to talk about his private life in interviews as well, and we’re still surprised he has a Twitter account (you guessed it, he tweets once every few months). Spotting Laurent seems to be less likely than seeing a unicorn these days, with even paparazzi having given up on hunting him down, and press is everything in Hollywood.

I want you to audition for The Summer Palace. Nobody could be a better Andrew than you.

From: Berenger [15:29]
I cannot guarantee you the role, that power is out of my hands, but I think they will see you’re made for it. Will you, please, please, audition for it? They will announce that movie is in plans tomorrow and auditions probably start within a month. I can send Enguerran all the details.

To: Berenger [15:33]
Regent will not hire me, you know that.

To: Berenger [15:33]
But congratulations on the movie deal! Auguste would be proud.

From: Berenger [15:34]
Regent and TCS has nothing to do with it.

From: Berenger [15:36]
I sold the rights to Delpha Movies, Makedon will direct it.

To: Berenger [15:37]
First of all, I wish I could see Regent’s face when he finds out but that would involve seeing his face so...

To: Berenger [15:38]
Secondly, Makedon would never hire me. He is known for his work ethic and would never get involved in any drama. He probably won’t even let me near Delpha.

From: Berenger [15:39]
Just try it, please?

To: Berenger [15:40]
I will.

From: Berenger [15:40]
Thank you, Laurent!

Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but I am worried that “The Summer Palace” will stray too far from the book. I mean, Makedon is known for historical war movies like “Kingsmeet” and “Isthima”, both absolutely amazing (I cried four times during “Isthima”, years later even the name of that movie makes my eyes teary) but TSP is nothing like that? I just hope they will not make it all space wars and impressive 3D scenes and actually focus on the main story? Andrew’s and Ryan’s love story is epic and deserves to be in the front, I don’t want it to be brushed aside because Makedon will get to play with spaceships? You know what I am saying?

man, that makes me sad. i hope berenger gets some input in the script, he has always talked about how important lgbtqa+ is to him and andrew and ryan are his babies. i am all for andrew leading those space battles but not at the expense of cutting out andrew and ryan’s love story.

5Times Damen and Jokaste Gave Us Serious Relationship Goals
By Terri Finnis, BuzzFeed Staff


Let’s be honest, we all want what they have. Warning: This post will restore your faith in love. BRACE YOURSELF.

1. When Damen courted Jokaste
Yes, you heard it right. In a recent interview with Vogue, Jokaste revealed how she and Damen got together. According to the stunning model, they met when Jokaste had just ended a terrible relationship and was not interested in starting a new one. Actually, she had been quite done with love. But Damen who has described Jokaste as the most gorgeous woman right after his mother (how cute is that?) fell in love with Jokaste and wanted to prove he was nothing like her ex. He pulled a page from medieval romance books and courted her. According to her, he made her feel like a queen, never crossed any lines, and was such a gentleman that she couldn’t help but fall for him. And the best part? He has never stopped treating her well and sources around them often talk about how romantic and in love they still are four years into their relationship.

2. When Kyrina posted this adorable video
According to Jokaste’s friend and fellow model Kyrina, they were on vacation in Greece when she heard shrieks and giggles coming from the hotel room next to hers. She didn’t hesitate to pull out her phone and sneakily filmed the video of Jokaste and Damen who were in their pajamas jumping up and down on their massive hotel bed. You have to see it to believe it!

3. When Jokaste cried during Damen’s Oscars Acceptance Speech
The Victoria's Secret model cried when her boyfriend won an Oscar for Best Actor (for Isthima) and it was so touching that half of us missed what Damen said. Apparently Jokaste was "overcome with emotion" when Damen thanked her for her support and love, finishing the speech with “I love you so much.” Honestly, that made us teary eyed as well. And can we all talk about how beautiful Jokaste still looked with tears slipping down her face?

4. When Jokaste was having none of that “bisexuality threatens me” bullshit
When Damen posted the most gorgeous photo of him and his castmate Torveld Patras re-enacting the famous romantic “Isthima” scene on his Instagram, the internet went crazy. While most fans found the photo hilarious and praised the heavens for blessing us with two stunning actors in one photo, some fans left comments pointing out how Jokaste should be worried since Damen is bisexual and Torveld is gay. (oh, internet.) It wasn’t long until Jokaste herself replied to a comment that said “bet five bucks theyre banging”. Her classy response said: “Just because someone is bisexual it doesn’t mean they can’t be monogamous. I love and trust Damen and this comment is so rude.” Bravo girl!

5. When Damen proposed
If stories of Damen’s romantic overtures and courtship melted your hearts wait until you hear how he proposed (we already cannot wait for the wedding!). Jokaste posted a photo of her hand, showing off her engagement ring on her Instagram with a long caption. “I said YES!” she wrote. “I am the  happiest woman in the world! Damen proposed and I can’t believe I get to call him my fiancé and soon to be husband. ♥ Not only did he ask permission to marry me from my parents but he also surprised me with the most amazing proposal. A year ago Damen and I saw the most beautiful house and I jokingly told him I could imagine living and having a family there. He secretly bought the house and took me there today, gave me the keys and then got on one knee and told me the most romantic and beautiful speech that I want to keep between us, but, yes, I teared up. Can’t believe I got so lucky to have him in my life.” HE BOUGHT HER THE DREAM FAMILY HOUSE AND THE RING. How is Damen even real? We are so happy for both of them!

[21:18] Lydos: ??????????????????????



Jokaste Atros and Damianos Akielos BREAK UP


Jokaste Atros is officially single. Just weeks before their wedding was scheduled to take place, her 4-year relationship with Damen Akielos is over. And apparently it’s a mess. Model Jokaste and her boyfriend, Hollywood sweetheart Damen, were lovey-dovey just days ago on Twitter when Damen posted how much he missed Jokaste while on another movie premiere tour in Europe, and Jokaste replied with “miss you too, my darling! xxx”. Which is why their split came as an utter shock to everyone.

How do we know? A source close to Jokaste confirmed she’s back in her old LA apartment and is crying on shoulders of her closest friends. Fans also spotted her red Ferrari parked there. And just minutes ago Damen’s bodyguard Pallas tweeted:

Pallas @bulletpr00fstuff
tips for mending a broken heart besides rum anynone???

He deleted his tweet as soon as fans started to ask him questions, but what’s once been put on internet stays on internet forever. Fans quickly put 2 and 2 together since Pallas was spotted escorting Damen out of LAX today and it wasn’t too far fetched to assume he was still on the duty.

Sources close to Damen say that just this morning the actor was gushing to his fellow cast members about going home to Jokaste. The question is, what happened? We will keep you updated.

I always said Jokaste is in it for the fame and I was right. She was just another Instagram model before she got together with Damen, and now she’s one of VS angels. They started to date right after Damen got role in Isthima and she went to every event and public sighting he had. And yes, none of it is a proof she used him, but we also had tons of photos and stuff with Damen being all hearteyes while she looked like someone who is just playing a role of girlfriend. I am digging up all my old posts to put together a list but yeah, not surprised.

I am sorry but are we forgetting Aimeric? I am appalled that Delpha Movies hired someone like Laurent de Vere. You know who would have been a good fit for Andrew? Aimeric. And he might have gotten that role if Laurent wouldn’t have bullied him into suicide.

looksofanangelI: am sorry but are we forgetting Aimeric? [..]

To play the devil’s advocate, we don’t know if it’s actually true, there is no proof besides some gossip about their fight and Aimeric’s dad talking about it. I remember Vannes said in an interview that there were no problems on set and that Aimeric and Laurent got along just fine as far as she knew. I know it must have been hard for Aimeric’s family and they might have wanted to find someone to blame but I don’t think we can say that Laurent is guilty without any real proof.

Transcript: Makedon North talks new movie The Summer Palace at The Washington Post
By Washington Post Live

We sat down with director Makedon North two days after film studio Delpha Movies announced the cast of their upcoming movie The Summer Palace, a sci-fi romance set in space, based on one of last year’s bestselling books with the same title. There has been a lot of buzz around the movie, controversial casting, and Makedon North going out of his comfort zone.

THE WASHINGTON POST: Tell us a bit, Makedon, about how it all started? How did you decide or agree to direct the movie? A lot of people were surprised Berenger chose Delpha Movies.

MAKEDON NORTH: [LAUGHS] I would have paid to see Regent’s face. [LAUGHS AGAIN] In all seriousness, of course everyone was talking about The Summer Palace and how it could be the movie of the year. I mean, my god, that book was fantastic. And you know I don’t usually spend time reading gay space romances. [LAUGHS] I had no doubt where that script was going to go, all of Berenger’s previous book adaptations were done by TCS and they had great success. But then we got a call from Berenger’s management and they said he really wanted me to do the movie, so it happened.

THE WASHINGTON POST: Did they said why Berenger wanted you to direct it?

MAKEDON NORTH: No, not really. We actually met up soon after the deal was done to discuss the script and he did tell me he loved Kingsmeet so there is that.

THE WASHINGTON POST: And also the small fact that you’re one of the best directors out there.


THE WASHINGTON POST: So you have a script of what we all assume will be an amazing movie and Berenger’s full support. What’s next?

MAKEDON NORTH: I know you want me to talk about the cast [LAUGHS], but I have to say, we did spend a lot of time with Berenger. I was very excited about The Summer Palace but also I wanted to be absolutely sure we would do the book justice. I wanted him to tell me what he wanted out of the movie, besides, you know, a big paycheck and beautiful movie. And I made it clear that as a straight man I might miss small nuances of the love story. So we had a lot of discussions, not just two of us but the whole team, and we made sure that before we cast anyone we’d truly know what each and every character means for this story, how and what we want them to be. There were moments where I doubted I was the right man for this but Berenger was very convincing, I remember he said that “look, I know you will have to work harder than ever on this one, but if you really want to do it, you will have my full support, I would be honored to have you as the director”. And that’s when I knew it would be okay, we will do this story justice.

THE WASHINGTON POST: That sounds wonderful, to have that support and trust.

MAKEDON NORTH: It is. I gave Berenger my word I will do my best and that’s what I am doing. I expect everyone else to do the same.

THE WASHINGTON POST: And speaking of that. There has been a lot of— many people are questioning the casting choices, especially Laurent de Vere. How did casting happen? Did you know who you wanted to have for the movie or was it a surprise even to you?

MAKEDON NORTH: I knew about Damen. He’s Ryan through and through. It was only the matter of convincing him.

THE WASHINGTON POST: Clearly he would agree, he has always praised you for the work you did with Isthima, and he got an Oscar for it.

MAKEDON NORTH: I don’t think Oscars are on your mind when your almost wife fucks your brother. Damen has always been too soft. Kastor is, excuse my language here, a piece of shit. And I had a lot of respect for their father Theomedes was one of my closest friends, he loved both of his sons equally and did everything to raise them well, but I can say nothing good about Kastor.

THE WASHINGTON POST: There were rumors he was originally casted for Isthima.

MAKEDON NORTH: He was. But he was too busy drinking and having parties, so I asked Damen to do the job. Maybe that’s where it started, who knows, but you don’t do this to your own blood. And make a public scandal of it too.

THE WASHINGTON POST: So— eventually Damen agreed?

MAKEDON NORTH: He did, he came and did the audition and, as I predicted, he was brilliant. Nobody on that day had any doubt he would be Ryan.


MAKEDON NORTH: [LAUGHS] He showed up and I told him to leave. Well, I said: “I will not risk you ruining this movie.” And he looked at me with a grin and said “I did not reckon you a coward.” And I remember thinking “fuck me, he is Andrew”. Of course I didn’t say that to him. [LAUGHS] But I did let him audition. And, you know, he was impressive, stunning. The whole audition I was torn between excitement that we have found Andrew and being terrified of how good he was. That kid is so talented I had a moment where I wondered if I was dreaming him up. I don’t know if he knows how good he is, but there was this moment in the audition, a scene where Andrew cries when he finds out Ryan is alive, and half of the room was crying. It was like nothing I have ever seen!

THE WASHINGTON POST: He really sounds perfect for the role.

MAKEDON NORTH: He is. And I know there is all the gossip and trouble associated with his name, I know. I don’t know how much of it is true or not, but I know I really want him for this movie. So as long as he doesn’t cause any issues — and this goes for everyone in my cast, I don’t judge Laurent more than anyone else — if people show up and do their job well, I am happy to have them on the set. If they can’t focus on the movie and cause trouble, they are out.

THE WASHINGTON POST: Did Damen and Laurent have audition scenes together as well?

From: Enguerran [08:33]
You will have to be on your best behavior. If we lose the role now when Makedon has praised you, I don’t think you will ever get another.




To: Enguerran [08:35]
When am I not on my best behavior?




From: Enguerran [08:36]
I am not joking, Laurent.




To: Enguerran [08:38]
I know. Jord is looking out for what Regent will send our way. I have no doubt he will try to get me fired. I cannot promise you anything, but you know I want this role. I will do whatever I can to keep it.




To: Enguerran [08:39]
And no, that doesn’t include photoshoots with puppies or kittens.




From: Enguerran [08:41]
If we can pull this one off, we have a chance at turning your career around. Even if Nicaise can’t get enough proof against Regent.




From: Enguerran [08:42]
Also, Damen asked me your number. Should I give it to him?




To: Enguerran [08:42]




From: Enguerran [08:43]
Damen Akielos? Your castmate? The one who spilled his coffee all over the floor when you came into the room?




To: Enguerran [08:43]
Shut up, I know who Damen is. Why does he need my number?




From: Enguerran [08:44]
Oh, Laurent.

From Brothers to Enemies: Kastor and Damen Akielos
by Ellen Luciani

Even without the pressures of high profile careers and fame, it’s not uncommon to hear stories of friends turning enemies, and family feuds certainly are not unheard of either. But this one still blows our minds, so we’ll be getting to the bottom of the feud between brothers Kastor and Damen Akielos and trying to find out why they fell out.

The obvious reason, of course, is model Jokaste Altros, Damen’s ex fiance who is currently pregnant with Kastor’s baby. We reported that, not even a week after TMZ broke the news of Jokaste’s and Damen’s break up, Jokaste and Kastor were spotted looking very much in love, and soon after news of Jokaste’s pregnancy was all over the internet. It shocked many as Jokaste and Damen were one of those Hollywood’s couples that everyone admired, their wedding was highly anticipated and we could imagine them growing old together. And while Damen and Kastor were often busy with completely different filming schedules and couldn’t spend a lot of time together, there didn’t seem to be any animosity between the brothers. They mentioned each other in interviews, and photos of them having barbecues, training together, or doing other family stuff were posted on their social media accounts. And just four days before the break up news, when asked on twitter to name three most important people in his life, Damen replied: “Jokaste, Kastor, Nikandros”. So we tried to dig deep and to figure out why Kastor made the choices he did.

Firstly, sibling rivalry is real, there have been a lot of studies on it. In a recent article of Psychology Today, Deborah Gold, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychiatry and sociology, talked about her findings when researching this topic. While her study on brother/brother ties is not yet completed, she shares a common theme found in her siblings studies. "The thing that rides through with brothers that doesn't come across in other sibling pairs is this notion of parental and societal comparison. Somehow with boys, it seems far more natural to compare them. Almost from day one, the fundamental developmental markers--who gets a tooth first, who crawls, walks, speaks first--are held up on a larger-than-life scale. And this comparison appears to continue from school to college to the workplace. Who has the biggest house, who makes the most money, drives the best car are constant topics of discussion. In our society, men are supposed to be achievement-oriented, aggressive. They're supposed to succeed." [Source] And apparently it’s even more rough when there are two siblings, two brothers only. With Kastor being the eldest, and Damen being much more successful in his acting career and relationships, we can see how this could have caused Kastor to feel threatened. It’s also worth to mention that Kastor and Damen do not share the same mother, and we’re sure Freud would have a lot to say about that.

Family therapist Dr. Paul Hokemeyer also adds that for celebrity siblings there is extra pressure, not only from society, but internally as well. "Celebrities need attention and external validation,” he explains. “And sometimes that consumes them with self-obsession—qualities that destroy relationships. Envy can get ugly."

What’s interesting is that some fans have shared their inputs on social media—and before you write them off as obsessed and dumb, we found quite a few interesting posts. This one is an analysis of times Kastor and Damen mentioned each other in interviews, and it shines a light on how Damen always talked about Kastor as family, mentioned him when asked who inspires him, motivates him. Damen also shared intimate family details involving both of them, while Kastor only ever mentions Damen if an interviewer brings up his brother. Even more, Kastor has never mentioned anything that would make clear his feelings for Damen are positive. Another post compares their careers and times when Damen did better, including the time Kastor was fired from movie Isthima and Damen was hired instead. Another one has compiled “evidence” that Jokaste and Kastor might have gone behind Damen’s back for years, but it’s mostly speculation with no solid proof. And while Jokaste has been silent on the subject, we struggle to believe this rumor.

Neither Damen or Kastor have commented on the situation, so it’s unclear if their relationship has any chance to recover, but they both have removed each other from social media following list and these days that’s the equivalent of “I don't want to know  you anymore.” Whatever their relationship is, we wish all the best for all parties involved.

Transcript: Laurent de Vere and Damen Akielos about shooting “The Summer Palace”
By Washington Post Live

We sat down with Laurent de Vere (Andrew Weir) and Damen Akielos (Ryan Scott) two weeks into shooting of The Summer Palace, a fantasy romance set in space, directed by Makedon North. There was a lot of uproar about casting but so far news from set is positive and the general public is getting more and more excited. We wanted to ask Laurent and Damen how are they dealing with the pressure, how are they getting along and what can we expect from the movie.

THE WASHINGTON POST: First of all, I have to ask. Damen, did you really drop coffee on the floor when you met Laurent? [LAUGHTER]



THE WASHINGTON POST: That’s a great first impression to have.

LAURENT DE VERE: Luckily for Damen, I knew him already.


DAMEN AKIELOS: How old were we? I think I was about sixteen, so Laurent must have been… ten?


DAMEN AKIELOS: It was right after my mother died. Kastor was off doing some movie and it was summer, so I was home all the time, driving my father crazy. [LAUGHS] I think it was Hypermenestra [Damen’s stepmother - TWP] who came up with the idea and Auguste’s [Auguste de Vere - TWP] parents agreed. They were renting a house that summer near ours so I got sent over to make friends. My father wanted me to have a friend who I could relate to, most of my classmates didn’t spend half a year filming, and so Auguste and I spent that summer together. Laurent was there as well, with a pile of books. [LAUGHS] Has he ever told you that he was Berenger’s first critic? It was ridiculous, Auguste and I were climbing trees while Berenger was arguing with a child about character development.

LAURENT DE VERE: Hey! He liked my opinions.

DAMEN AKIELOS: He did. [GRINS] They could talk for hours. And Berenger would make notes.

THE WASHINGTON POST: The books did amazing though.

LAURENT DE VERE: I take no credit there [SMILES], Berenger is very talented. I was just happy to have someone to talk to about books. But I liked Damen as well because he always brought sweets. [GRINS]

DAMEN AKIELOS: Did I ever tell you I did it because Auguste told me you like them? I really wanted to impress you since Auguste talked so highly of you. I knew that if you wouldn’t like me, Auguste wouldn’t be my friend.

LAURENT DE VERE: I was ten, Damen.


THE WASHINGTON POST: So you are childhood friends?

DAMEN AKIELOS: No. Actually, we haven’t talked since…

LAURENT DE VERE: Funeral, when my parents and Auguste died. Damen came and he wanted to offer his support. I think you said “I am so sorry, I know how it feels.” [DAMEN NODS] And, of course, I totally forgot Damen had lost his mother and I was so upset and angry at everyone and everything, I screamed at him. Told him that he doesn’t know anything, he still has a brother while I didn’t and that he should get lost. [SILENCE] Sorry, I don’t really like to talk about that time.

THE WASHINGTON POST: Of course. So, now you two get to make a movie together? Were you worried about working together?

LAURENT DE VERE: I wasn’t. Well, I hoped that Damen wouldn’t hold our last conversation over my head, but I genuinely looked forward to working with him. He’s a great actor.

DAMEN AKIELOS: Yes, I can say the same. If you’ve seen any of Laurent’s movies, you have to be excited to get an opportunity to work with him. So you can’t blame me for spilling coffee.

LAURENT DE VERE: [LAUGHS] You’re unbelievable.

THE WASHINGTON POST: It must be great to have a good relationship on set when you have to play a couple, makes it easier. You read those stories where main actors hate each other and directors have to pull their hairs out to finish the movie.

LAURENT DE VERE: Damen is a great kisser, that helps the chemistry. [BOTH BURST INTO LAUGHTER]

DAMEN AKIELOS: Sorry, sorry. It’s an inside joke, we’re being rude.

THE WASHINGTON POST: No problem! So, Andrew and Ryan. Do you have anything in common with your characters or are they nothing like you?

shouldn’t you celebrate? he was your crush as well :D

Torveld Patras:
i have a feeling he’s more into tall, dark and handsome ;)

Damen Akielos:
i think he knows that Makedon might rip him apart if anything happens
he won’t risk being sacked
also i am not sure it’s a good idea right now, i am still trying to figure out things with jokaste and kastor

Torveld Patras:
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help! Or if you need a drink.

Torveld Patras:
I would offer rebound sex but sadly that’s not an option.

Damen Akielos:
yeah no, your boyfriend will kill me

Torveld Patras:
Don’t worry, Laurent would kill you first.

Damen Akielos:
seriously, we are not together!



14-year-old actor Nicaise LeBeau was injured last night when, according the the police, the car he was passenger in plowed into embankment and overturned, killing the driver. Another driver caused the accident and fled the scene, law enforcement sources tell us they couldn’t identify this other driver since his car had no license plate. It is unclear if that hints to an attempt on LeBeau’s life, but we are told that police is not treating this as a vehicular homicide… yet.

Nicaise LeBeau was rushed to Jacobi Hospital and was reported to be in critical condition. Sources tell us he suffered broken ribs, a broken jaw, broken femurs, a lung puncture, minor brain injuries, and abdominal injuries, and required multiple surgeries. His publicist said he would likely remain in the hospital for several weeks if not months, but thankfully this morning LeBeau was stable and has shown some signs of responsiveness.

With those injuries, he’s lucky to be alive. And I am curious who spilled that info, the hospital should watch their stuff more.

And no word about the driver who died, just because he wasn’t famous. Not even his name? Seriously what kind of journalism is this? RIP. Sending my prayers to his family.

TMZ you disappoint me, where are closeups of dead bodies and and long exposure shots of bloody limbs? Seriously, this is so disgusting, at least remove that video! I hope tmz gets in legal trouble, Nicaise is a minor, ffs! That's so rude and disrespectful. I'm pretty sure the other driver was just a paparazzi. Because princess Diana was not enough they need some kid blood as well. Disgusting animals.

I haven't seen any of his movies but I feel that watching one now would be appropriate way of showing support. Any suggestions for the movie?

how do you tell another person you are dating when they don't know?

You don't tell them anything because you are not dating. Because you just break up with someone and do not need to make stupid decisions. And you are filming in a movie together and do not want to mess it up.

Just tell him, ffs.

i don’t want to reblog those photos because i think that’s a massive breach in laurent’s privacy but ngl i want to know why is he visiting nicaise. i mean, i can understand them working out some issues (nicaise was just a kid when chalis stuff happened) but there is a big jump from ‘ok, i forgive you’ and ‘i will rush to your hospital bed’?

oh noes, two people were spotted in the same city block and my tumblr timeline explodes with the same post over and over. meanwhile the new privacy legislation has been passed in the congress and nobody cares. we are truly an amazing generation. *stops ranting and goes for a comfort ice cream*. maybe we need to ask laurent or that other cute-face to walk into congress. that seems the only way how to draw tumblrs attention. stay classy tumblr.

It’s actually nice to think that Laurent might be mentoring Nicaise, if anyone, he knows how Hollywood can treat you like garbage and help Nicaise to make better choices than he did. I can totally see him go all dad mode on Nicaise after the drug scandal. Contrary to the popular belief, people can change, people can work out their issues. And Nicaise needs all the support he can get right now. So yeah, I am here for Laurent visiting Nicaise in the hospital.

Laurent was spotted grabbing coffee at Jacobi Hospital’s lobby just a few minutes ago, he’s been in the hospital for about ten hours. According to some fans his bodyguards are also there. I am not sure how I feel about talking about this though. Guys, do you think  we share the photos/updates or not?

i think we should stop speculating about all of this. i mean, Nicaise is in very serious condition and i just don’t like that we treat it like next piece of gossip to chat about.

5 Times Damen and Laurent Made Us Jealous
By Terri Finnis, BuzzFeed Staff

Because we all want a friend like that.

In case you are unaware and live under a rock, Damen Akielos and Laurent de Vere are filming in a movie together. And not only we get to be excited to see them together on the big screen, they have also given us some serious friendship goals. Apparently they met as kids, reunited as adults and have been BFFs ever since.

1. Childhood friends
In an interview with The Washington Post, Damen and Laurent revealed they have known eachother since forever. Apparently Damen was friends with Laurent’s brother, but not only he was friends with the oldest of de Vere children, apparently he was so invested in impressing Laurent, he used to bring over sweets every time for little Laurent who had a sweet tooth. Friends who bring you candies? They are the best.

2. Hilarious interviews
If you haven’t seen or read any of their recent interviews, you are missing out big time! These two are making jokes left and right (can we send a flower basket to Damen for giving us the opportunity to hear Laurent laugh?), pulling pranks on each other and having so much fun that we’re a bit jealous and want to be a part of their bromance as well. In the most recent interview with  The Hollywood Reporter Laurent talked about how there is never a dull day when they are filming because of Damen, and their director Makedon North confirmed it, telling to the reporters: “Yesterday they played tag and somehow managed to involve half of the crew, I would fire them if they were also not doing their job with just as much enthusiasm.” And he even told that Laurent won.

3. Their selfies
Damen is known for posting selfies on his Instagram, but Laurent doesn’t even have one. He’s known to be very guarded and private so it’s no surprise. Until now, at least. Damen has given us more selfies of him and Laurent than we could have ever asked for. Apparently, Laurent doesn’t mind to share if it’s not paparazzi who are trying to take his photos. And, guys, what photos they are. Our favorite one is with them posing in their costumes for The Summer Palace movie, their space suits are all bloody and dirty, and so is their makeup, but Damen’s sneaking in a kiss on Laurent’s cheek and we can’t help but make awwwing noises at the cuteness of it all.

4. Play hard, work hard
Delpha Movies official Instagram account recently posted this photo from The Summer Palace movie set and it’s adorable. You can see Laurent sitting on a couch that looks like a part of the set, with his script in his hands, we’re guessing he was rehearsing his lines. Damen is lying on the couch with head in Laurent’s lap and his own script in his hands, looking very focused. The caption says: “Laurent and Damen working even during a break.”
[© @delphamoviesofficial]

5. What friends are for
This photo of Damen embracing Laurent in the hospital says it all. Damen arrived to the hospital a day after Laurent rushed to visit his past movie partner Nicaise who was severely injured in a car crash, and two of them were spotted hugging it out outside Nicaise’s hospital room. Looks like Damen and Laurent are those friends who will not drop each other when things get hard, and that’s the kind of friendship we all want, isn’t it?

ummmm... wtf nicaise???

LaLaLamen Today at 9:12AM
I am so shocked I don’t even know what to say.
Is he saying Regent and Council Studios are behind his car crash?

Angel | laurent-of-vere   Today at 9:13AM
I think he is??? But like… Regent always talks so highly of him and he’s in all TCS movies? Why would they want to kill their best grossing star?

nicaselove   Today at 9:13AM
Who is the person that tweeted for him (loyaltothethrone)?

LaLaLamen Today at 9:14AM
Nikandros, Damen’s manager. His account is private.

Anna M. Today at 9:14AM
Whaaat? Why is Damen’s manager there?

Angel | laurent-of-vere   Today at 9:15AM
Damen is there too, with all of his bodyguards. And Laurent’s team is there too based on all the photos we’ve seen.

Rusty (Ravenel) Today at 9:15AM
I don’t think Nicaise would joke about that. I know he did the chalis thing with Laurent, but this shit could get him in real trouble.

caspers   Today at 9:15AM
defamation suit in 3.. 2.. 1

Dumbledore Today at 9:16AM
drama really always happens wherever laurent is

nicaselove   Today at 9:17AM
If what he tweeted is true, I hope Nicaise is safe. This is some scary shit.

LaLaLamen Today at 9:19AM
Damen has like four or five bodyguards with him, same with Laurent. I don’t know who is targeting him, but I think it’s true. Why else they would bring an army of bodyguards to the hospital?


How to dress like Laurent de Vere
by Charls

From his ice blue eyes and wavy golden locks to his famous laced shirts with the top undone to sharp, bold patterns, silks and leathers and skin tight jeans, Laurent de Vere knows what suits him. He looks gorgeous in both streetwear (often combining snuggly fitting jeans with soft knitted oversized sweaters or bold jackets and graphic tees) and most famous fashion house pieces (his favorite being Pet Ancel), and whatever it is he wears, he pulls it off with an ease. World's greatest designers all want to dress him, so today we are taking a look back at some of his all time best outfits.

Before starting to look for Laurent’s favorite clothing items in stores, it’s worth to mention that his blond hair is a big part of the look, whether flowing free, put up in a bun or braided, they are always made and look the part. When asked about his hair on red carpet, Laurent freely admits to not having a personal groomer or hair stylist, he likes to take care of it himself. His routine is very simple and surprisingly low maintenance - don’t wash it too often, use a good conditioner and have some products to help styling it. He loves sea salt spray for a bit of grit and texture, and some gel when putting the hair up.

Simple and classy
This look sums up Laurent’s everyday style the best - black skin tight jeans, black ankle boots and white laced silk shirt from Pet Ancel. Black pants and white shirts sounds boring, but the lace detailing on silky sheen of the shirt is what keeps it interesting. Combined with minimal but sleek accessories - some rings or a watch, this is Laurent’s to go look.

Pop of color
There might be more black trousers and jackets in Laurent’s wardrobe than all the other colors combined, but he knows how to keep it interesting - he isn’t afraid to wear shirts that will stand out, whether it’s baby blue that compliments his eyes, bubble gum pink that he doesn’t shy away from or gorgeous burgundy that makes us think he has some royal blood. While most of Laurent’s shirts are custom maid, here are some images to give you an inspiration.

[Gallery of images]

Blue and gold
If there is a color duo that reminds us of Laurent it’s baby blue and gold. That iconic time when he wore light blue suit with golden star embroidery to Oscars is still fresh in our memories, especially when he later took off the jacket and revealed the most gorgeous, almost see through shirt. His outfit was the most talked about that year and we still struggle to remember anyone else’s red carpet looks from that year.

Long coats
While Laurent prefers the warm, sunny LA weather he travels often. His favorite piece of clothing for cold days seems to be a long, structured, trench or tuxedo coat. While he keeps the golden rule for pants - the skinnier, the better, his coats are often a bit oversized. His coats, just like shirts, usually have interesting details: ribbon details along the sleeves, embroidered applique, colorful elements or specially designed buttons.

Cozy and comfortable
While we love Laurent’s exquisite shirts and jackets that stand out, there’s something marvelous about seeing him in soft and cozy outfits. When Laurent is not on the red carpet, he will often choose warm knitwear over silk or leather. Some fans have branded it as his “airport outfit” as Laurent likes to be comfortable when flying, and yet still look pulled together and stylish. Our most favorite sweater is the burgundy red one that he is seen wearing often during filming his newest movie. It looks super soft and at least a few sizes too big on Laurent, similar to one we have seen his costar Damen Akielos wear. But hey, it looks amazing on him, so we don’t mind them sharing!

The Council Studios And Curse of Child Stars

TCS is one of the most successful film companies in the world, it seems like they have had a neverending strings of hit movies for the past fifteen years and can do no wrong when it comes to making films. They have made many unknown actors into big name stars and there’s not doubt that every talent in Hollywood dreams to be hired by TCS. But it’s not always sunshine and rainbows for the stars themselves, sadly not everyone who has been made famous by TCS lives a happy life afterwards. Actually, it seems like more TCS child stars end up on the wrong path than the right one. We’ve watched them grow up and meet with sad realities of adult lives, not dealing well with fame, getting into legal troubles, and even worse, passing away too soon. Here are five TCS child stars that faced unlikely or tragic fates.

Auguste de Vere
Auguste was a prolific child actor, most known for his roles in “Steeplechase” and “The Battle of Marlas”. He was considered TCS “first child star” and had many outstanding performances. Auguste had a wholesome image and was loved by both movie critics and general public. Unlike many other child stars, Auguste didn’t run into any trouble during his teenage years and kept his clean-cut image intact. His work ethic inspired many as much as his attitude towards fame. While Auguste knew that life in the limelight will never be the same, he was never reported to act entitled, he actually loved the simple life and spent most of his time with his family and friends. Tragically, Auguste died in a plane crash when he was only 19 years old.

Thevenin Touars
Thevenin was only three years younger than Auguste, hired soon after TCS seemed to realize that child stars were a good investment, they could shape young careers exactly how they wanted and make sure the talent is kept for their studio only. It helped that young actors gathered their own fanbase as well, a fanbase that might have previously ignored TCS movies and now had actors to admire and look up to. Thevenin was the first child actor that director Regent worked with, and it is probably his success that made Regent want to work with child stars more than adults. But for Thevenin being famous and rich wasn’t enough, he was only fourteen when newspapers started to report on his troubling behaviours. Rumors of depression, self harm and substance abuse were flying around and while TCS denied everything, most likely not wanting to be associated with anything but perfectly clean image, it seemed as Thevenin faded in front of everyone’s eyes. At seventeen he was caught and videotaped shooting up heroin in the backseat of a car. He was found dead only three weeks later and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office confirmed the cause of death was an accidental heroin overdose.

Laurent de Vere
Laurent was first known just as the brother of Auguste de Vere, but after his performance in “Ravenel”, the highest grossing movie domestically and internationally that year, it was clear that he was a shining star with or without de Vere surname. Every movie he starred in outdid the previous one and he was promised great heights. Laurent lost his family in the plane crash at the young age of thirteen, and not long after reports of his downward spiral started. It’s unclear why TCS didn’t let the young boy grieve the loss properly, instead he was pushed into another movie project just days after the crash. It was no surprise that Laurent couldn’t handle the loss and massive workload at the same time, but greed of TCS had no limits and a year later Laurent was filming “Arles”, a movie that Laurent and Auguste were supposed to do together, and that might have been the last straw for the young actor. A month later movie was cancelled, Regent and TCS publicly shamed Laurent and promised to never work with him again. After that Laurent had a hard time finding new projects, he got involved in drug scandals and his career never really recovered. When another TCS star, Aimeric Fortaine, killed himself and his family blamed Laurent, even his fans ran out of love for Laurent. But looks like Laurent is working on his redemption, hired for what is promised to be this years hit, “The Summer Palace” movie, Laurent might get another chance in Hollywood. We can just hope that Delpha Movies treat their breadwinners better than other companies.

Aimeric Fortaine
Aimeric rose to fame soon after TCS dropped Laurent. His blond hair, blue eyes and beautiful face were eerily similar to Laurent’s, so much so that it seemed that TCS are literally trying to replace Laurent. To Aimeric’s credit, he soon proved himself to be more than just a replacement, the young boy was not lacking acting talent and shined bright in multiple smaller roles. His breakout movie was “Soldier”, and it earned TCS a good penny. Aimeric was the first star that TCS let work outside their own projects, and many were surprised when Vannes hired Aimeric and Laurent de Vere to be in the same film, a move that Vannes reportedly regrets up to this day. While at first it seemed that Aimeric and Laurent got along just fine and could even be spotted eating lunch together, it might have all ben just a facade for PR. Aimeric committed a suicide three months into filming, just hours after crew saw both actors having a massive fight, Laurent reportedly bringing Aimeric to tears. And Aimeric’s family too told the press that Laurent had been a constant source of distress for their son. And while they never sued Laurent or provided any proof to back up their claims, the implications that Laurent was to be blamed were clear.

Nicaise LaBeau
Nicaise was the first TCS child star that never pretended to have a sweet and friendly image, even at the young age of eight, when he joined TCS, Nicaise was mischievous and sharp tongued. His interviews were always an entertainment, and it was obvious that unlike other shy rising stars, Nicaise knew his value from the beginning. Sources talked about Nicaise getting paid more than any other TCS child or adult star, and he clearly loved the life of luxury. But while reporters talked about how spoiled the young actor was, movie critics praised him. And it was no surprise that Nicaise earned an Oscar as the best actor for his leading role in “Blue Earring”, breaking the record for the youngest Academy Award winner. Maybe it was the award or maybe Nicaise knew better how to play the industry, but despite many scandals he got himself into, TCS kept him and Nicaise remained Regent’s favorite for years to come. But it looks like something has changed in their relationship as Nicaise went to Twitter soon after waking up in a hospital after a horrible car crash, and he made bold claims, blaming TCS and Regent specifically in attempted homicide. While TCS and Regent denied accusations, we are curious to know why Nicaise seems to have allied himself with Laurent de Vere, an actor whose career Nicaise himself helped to destroy. Maybe there is a reason why so many TCS child stars go down the rabbit hole and Nicaise, who has never played by Hollywood’s rules, is not having it.

Half of my dashboard is talking about “The Summer Palace”, and I admit I haven’t read the book, so I have no idea what it is about. But in my mind it’s a story about two Indiana Jones / The Martians who travel around planets getting into trouble.

How did you know you were in love with Aimeric?

From: Jord [05:46]
Laurent, it's not even 6AM.

From: Jord [05:46]
And I don't know. Does anyone? And honestly, I don't even know if I was.

To: Jord [05:51]
I don't know. I've never been in love.

From: Jord [05:52]
Why are we having this conversation? Did something happen?

To: Jord [05:52]

From: Jord [05:54]
You do know it's okay, right? Enguerran will be mad and lecture you about your career choices but Makedon won't mind. If anything it sells the movie.

To: Jord [05:55]
I have to go.

From: Jord [05:56]
Just talk with Damen.

They found him.



14-year-old actor Nicaise LeBeau was severely injured when a driver of another car caused an accident and fled the scene. The car had no license plate and it was unclear if it was a vehicular homicide or just hit and run.

TMZ has learned that today the man behind the wheel - Govart Gagnon - was arrested.

UPDATE -------------------------------

2:55 PM -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ there is no bail option as they have enough evidence to not want to let Govart Gagnon go.

3:10 PM -- Cops have found the car that was involved in the accident.

3:30 PM -- Gagnon refuses to cooperate and has requested a lawyer.

6:50 PM -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Gagnon has confessed to attempted murder of Nicaise LaBeau. He claims he was paid to do so but refuses to tell by whom.

11:40 PM -- Cops just had a press conference… Govart Gagnon has been found dead in his cell. Police has ruled out suicide.

Transcript: Film mogul Regent is a child molester: Nicaise LaBeau tells his story
By The New Yorker


When 14-year-old actor Nicaise LeBeau was horribly injured in a car crash, The Council Studios rushed to release a supportive statement and wish Nicaise a speedy recovery; director Regent was quoted to say: “Nicaise is a shining star that Hollywood cannot live without, my thoughts and prayers are with him.” No surprise that everyone was shocked when Nicaise tweeted that he blames Regent and his movie company for the car crash. The Council Studios called the allegations “upsetting and blatant lies”, Regent blamed his former star Laurent de Vere for influencing Nicaise. We expected Regent to file a defamation lawsuit, but Nicaise plans to take Regent to court himself for allegations much worse than defamation. In an interview with The New Yorker, Nicaise talks about pedophilia allegations and why his life might still be in danger.
We met in a private hospital in LA where Nicaise is still recovering from his many injuries. There were numerous levels of security to bypass and multiple bodyguards both outside and inside Nicaise’s room. We had exchanged emails before the interview, and I met the manager that Nicaise has been working with. It was this manager who’d been typing Nicaise’s recent tweets (due to his injuries Nicaise wasn’t able to use his hands) and he stayed with us during the interview along with two bodyguards. Nicaise seemed unbothered by their presence despite the heavy conversation, and at times it was hard to remember I was talking to a 14-year-old kid.

THE NEW YORKER: That’s a lot of security you have.

NICAISE LABEAU: Better safe than sorry, right?

TNY: You were telling me about the death threats, about the messages.

NL: Yes. Nik [Nikandros, his manager] will send you all the screenshots if you want. I have received at least one every day. ( His manager nods. )

TNY: I am sure people will be curious, why you are talking to the press and not the police?

NL: I am talking to both, but he [Regent] has people everywhere. I have enough evidence to bring him to court, but I want a fair trial. I think this increases my chances. And I am petty ( Nicaise grins, his manager laughs ), I want him to know how it feels to be publicly destroyed.

TNY: Is that what he is trying to do right now?

NL: With me? No, he’s trying to kill me. But he has done it to many others. The thing is, he only likes us when we are kids, when our voices haven’t broken yet. When you are too old for him to fuck you, he drags your name through the mud, making sure nobody will ever be on your side, and disposes of you. Another one takes your place. ( At this point it’s evident that the bodyguards have not been previously informed about the subject of our interview, there is some distress, and it takes time for Nicaise to calm everyone down.)

NL: Sorry.

TNY: No problem. Did you mention others?

NL: I cannot name names, it’s not my place, but I am sure you will hear about them soon.

TNY: How do you know about the others?

NL: It’s not that hard to guess. ( There’s a pause, Nicaise is visibly upset.) But if people want evidence, there are papers, lists, everything. He kept records. I know he blames Laurent’s influence, brain injuries and everything else, but it’s really not just my word against his.

TNY: Speaking of Laurent, there was quite an uproar about him helping you. Everyone assumed you two don’t get along.

NL: Everyone assumed we hate each other. Which I did, for a long time. Regent was very good at convincing me that he loved me, that I was special, the only one. I believed him. He hated Laurent after the Arles fiasco, and I knew that. So, of course, I wanted to impress Regent. The only reason I agreed to do Chastillion was to spread rumors about Laurent doing drugs and giving them to me. (Nicaise gets teary-eyed.) I helped to destroy his career. Laurent would tell you it’s not my fault, but...

TNY: Laurent doesn’t blame you?

NL: No, he actually saved me.

Rusty Ravenel @rustyrav
I am so disgusted I don’t even know what to say

Anna @annamayers
@rustyrav i’m so ???????

gremlin_queen @zero_bubbles
nicaise looks so tiny in the photos, so many injuries and all the hospital machines around him, he’s so brave :(

Tokyo Drift @driftdrift
Wow, Hollywood keeps delivering. Just when I thought nothing could disgust me more.

fearless soul @interestings_
ofc it’s no excuse for regent but @behindblueeyes admitted he wanted to have sex with regent and did it willingly??? to get roles and stuff? that is so fucked up!

Bella @bloggerbella
I have been very vocal about how much I dislike Laurent de Vere, and I still think he’s done a lot of horrible stuff, but I am glad he was there for Nicaise. The part about Laurent hiding their friendship so Nicaise would not be in danger… Damn.

Diana @chasing___cars
@bloggerbella Well, Laurent might know what Regent to Nicaise did from first hand experience.

Bella @bloggerbella
@chasing___cars Shit… SHIT. You might be right. Ughhhhh.

arthur @pizzaparty85
gotta love the sudden silence from the council studios on all social media

Laurent De Vere Updates @laurentupdates
I know there’s a lot of speculation on Twitter right now, but I don’t feel comfortable making any assumptions.

Laurent De Vere Updates @laurentupdates
And I don’t want to make this about Laurent, right now it’s Nicaise who needs love and support.

Rusty Ravenel @rustyrav
wait, wait, i just remembered, @annamayers that time you tweeted about Laurent and Nicaise and then deleted the tweet???

Anna @annamayers
@rustyrav can’t say much but remember how laurent followed me right after?

Nicaise L. @behindblueeyes
@interestings_ You fucking piece of shit, I was eight years old. Do you also want to know if I was wearing skirt too short, got drunk and flirted with him in a dark alley?

Nicaise L. @behindblueeyes
@interestings_ Question: When is a child responsible for their own sexual abuse? Answer: NEVER.

Nicaise L. @behindblueeyes
Two of my bodyguards are shamelessly flirting with each other. And no, I am not talking about Laurent and Damen.

gremlin_queen @zero_bubbles
omg nicaise is an angel and we should all love and cherish him





From: Laurent [23:16]
How did you know you were in love with Jokaste?


To: Laurent [23:17]
i don’t know, i just did?


From: Laurent [23:18]
That’s not helpful at all.


To: Laurent [23:19]
sorry i just don’t know how to explain it. how would u explain it?


From: Laurent [23:33]
I’ve never been in love. It would be pointless anyway.


To: Laurent [23:35]
pointless? why????????


From: Laurent [23:37]
After Regent? Who would want to love me?


To: Laurent [23:38]
are u w/ nicaise?


From: Laurent [23:38]


To: Laurent [23:40]
stay where u are, on my way


From: Laurent [23:42]
What? Why? Damen you don’t have to.





A bodyguard for Laurent de Vere has been shot after a gunman opened fire on Laurent’s car as it was driving through LA traffic. According to the LA Police Department, Laurent de Vere was not in the car, but another actor, Laurent’s partner in an upcoming movie, Damen Akielos was in the car and was not injured. It’s not clear if the gunman was after de Vere or Akielos.

Orlant Rebours, one of Laurent de Vere’s bodyguards, was shot in the arm around midnight, shortly after the car left Akielois’ apartment. Rebours was taken to the hospital to be treated for the gunshot wounds and is reported to be in good condition. He was released two hours after arriving.

Chapter Text



Film mogul, director Regent was arrested in New York City today on charges of rape, criminal sex acts, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct related to his interactions with six minors according to the New York Police Department. “The NYPD thanks the brave victims for their courage in coming forward and seeking justice,” the NYPD said in a statement. 

Regent was taken to court in handcuffs; the hearing opened at 11:00AM and, in a roomful of reporters, the lead prosecutor in the case announced the charges against the film mogul: multiple first-degree and third-degree rape charges. The prosecutor also noted that Regent was using his power and position to lure in young actors and sexually abuse them as well as silence his victims.

Regent pleaded not guilty.

UPDATE -------------------------------

1:00 PM The families of Thevenin Touars and Aimeric Fortaine—two young actors who allegedly were sexually abused by Regent and later committed suicide—intend to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the families’ lawyers told reporters.

2:30 PM A witness has come forward and NYPD has enough evidence that Govart Gagnon, a driver who tried to kill Nicaise LaBeau in a car crash, was hired by Regent. Regent will be additionally charged with first-degree attempted murder.

Come on! People like you are the reason why victims don’t come forward! Do you know how much it takes to talk about the abuse? And in front of the whole world in this case? Also Nicaise LeBeau was almost killed when he did it? Do we even know if some others were not killed?

He might, sure, but I’ll bet anything that was not the reason. I mean, even if you ignore the age he was dropped by TCS and other facts, Nicaise practically spelled it out in his interview. And they shot his bodyguard!

Was Damen there too?

sunlights Today at 3:12PM
i think no? pretty sure he was filming today.

Rusty (Ravenel) Today at 3:13PM
This is just so horrific. I mean, I always liked Laurent, and I never believed even half of the things the press was saying about him, but this is just… He was dragged through the mud when TCS dropped him, and he never said anything against them. I feel so heartbroken for him.

zero-bubbles Today at 3:14PM
@Rusty (Ravenel) omg, i just woke up, did he confirm he was one of the victims?

Rusty (Ravenel) Today at 3:14PM
Yeah. :(

Angel | laurent-of-vere Today at 3:15PM
A journalist asked him (and idk who asks questions like that?) if he was one of the victims & he just said “yes”.

zero-bubbles Today at 3:15PM

sunlights Today at 3:15PM
also, remember how everyone including aimeric’s father blamed laurent??? and now the wrongful death? what???

LaLaLamen Today at 3:16PM
Yeah, I am confused about that one. Wasn’t there a suicide note?

Rusty (Ravenel) Today at 3:16PM
Well, we never actually saw it, and they never sued Laurent for wrongful death, so maybe they were lying? Or perhaps it’s more complicated. Fuck. This makes my head AND heart hurt.

Queen Halvik @halvikismyqueen
Loyse Fortaine is a proof that you should not underestimate mother’s love. She and Nicaise are my heros for getting all the evidence to the police.

Bella @bloggerbella
There is still a shitton of proof Laurent is an asshole. He might be a victim, but he’s still an asshole.

gremlin_queen @zero_bubbles
@bloggerbella really? when does he have time to be one in between charities, helping nicaise, trying to save aimeric, and also taking all the shit media threw at him regards regent?

Bella @bloggerbella
@zero_bubbles Whatever, you can believe that if you want but he’s been rude to too many people.

@bloggerbella everyone who talks shit about Laurent owes me five dollars

Hollywood And The Council Studios Owe An Apology to Laurent de Vere
By Herrode

When Makedon North cast Laurent de Vere in his upcoming movie, Hollywood had a fit. How dare he? Isn’t he aware how absolutely horrible and unworkable de Vere is? Hasn’t he read all these articles about why Hollywood should not hire Laurent? Doesn’t he remember all those scandals, all those failed movies? “Laurent de Vere is a box office poison,” claimed a celebrity gossip site, “he is like Midas, except his golden touch turns everything into ruins,” said another. On Twitter, #boycottthesummerpalace trended before the filming even started. The movie seemed to be doomed before it was released. And yet, Makedon continued working with Laurent de Vere and unapologetically claimed that Laurent was “talented”, “impressive”, “stunning”. “It’s a shame,” I told a friend after reading an interview with Makedon, “that after everything that Laurent has done, he gets to ruin another movie.”

And the list of things that Laurent had done was endless. Here, at The Council Studios, we still remembered the filming of Arles and how it seemed that Laurent single-handedly managed to ruin everything. We heard stories from cast and crew about how spoiled Laurent was, we heard about how he refused to listen to Regent, we heard how he ripped costumes apart, ruined set pieces, had tantrums and made the set impossible to work at. As a board member of The Council Studios, I agreed that it was for the best to stop the filming, and when Regent insisted we should never work with Laurent again, I agreed to that too. Back then none of us knew, and even worse, none of us tried to know. I never personally visited the set to see what was happening, I never asked Laurent any questions, I pretended not to know that he was forced to work days after the crash that killed his family, I had “forgotten” that Laurent’s late brother was supposed to be his partner in Arles. It was one child actor against the director and co-chairman, we all knew what the right thing to do was.

In Hollywood influence and money are everything, you can get away with murder if you are rich and powerful. And you can destroy those who are below you. Nobody in Hollywood’s inner circles is surprised when an actor is made to look like a failure, when they are blacklisted, when their careers fade, we all know that chances are—said actor has angered someone powerful. So when Laurent’s career kept spiraling down even after Arles, we knew it wasn’t just Laurent destroying his image, we knew that Regent had a say in it. “Laurent did something to deserve it,” is what we would say if you asked. None of us thought anything of it—a powerful movie mogul going after a 14-year-old kid and destroying his life.

We failed Laurent de Vere just like we failed Thevenin Touars, Aimeric Fortaine, and Nicaise LaBeau. We pretended not to know that the system is rigged against them and that there might be an apparent reason why four TCS child stars all walked down the same path, why all of them were “shining stars” but only until their voices broke. Nobody wanted to risk going against the most influential person, we all valued our careers, salaries, and reputations more than we valued the safety and wellbeing of children within the industry.

And even when allegations against Regent started, when Nicaise bravely talked to the press, we still didn’t do anything. We, the board members, hoped that Regent would resign so none of us would have to fire him, we were still afraid and more worried about our own lives than the fact that we had helped to destroy others’. In the end, we fired him—only after our attorneys reassured us we have the grounds to do so, of course. But it was too late. Firing Regent after he was arrested was like taking away a gun of a murderer after he had killed people.

We can no longer pretend not to know and not to see, it’s evident that Laurent wasn’t a spoiled child star on the set of Arles, but a victim desperately trying to escape. We now know that he didn’t “bully Aimeric into suicide”, we know that most if not all Laurent’s scandals had Regent’s hands in them. Laurent lived through all of them and kept working despite Hollywood trying to get rid of him. And Makedon North, who has never played by Hollywood’s rules, noticed what we pretended not to see—that he was still the same talented, incredible actor that he had been before we all sided with his abuser Regent.

There isn’t much we can do besides apologizing and doing our best from now on. Thankfully, there is no statute of limitations for rape in New York or Los Angeles, and there is enough evidence to keep Regent behind bars for a few lifetimes, but he is not the first or the last one who disregards lives of those he deems less powerful or less important. We have to be better and do better, so there are no more Laurents or Aimerics, we have to stop sacrificing children like lambs to make powerful men happy.

Chapter Text



The space romance blasted off overseas with $65.7 million opening as well. Directed by Makedon North, produced by Stavos Dice and Straton Kesus, starring Laurent De Vere and Damen Akielos, this sci-fi romance set in space proved that love for space movies is not dying. The movie was a big risk for Delpha Movies with its controversial casting, a few scandals, and a script that was expected to land in The Council Studios. 

The movie was expected to do around $50 million worth of business but exceeded $55.8 million “Gravity” debut and $55 “The Martian” debut, other space movies that have done great in the past. Overseas the film is going just as strong as domestically, dominating in the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and China. Box office report that domestic audiences were split pretty equally, with fifty-two percent of ticket-buyers being female. 

The Summer Palace not only won over audiences, it also scored 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, with film critics praising it left and right. Reviews have complimented both main actors - Laurent de Vere and Damen Akielos - both of whom have been praised by their director as well. Makedon North, who had admitted this movie was “his biggest challenge”, has never backed down from his choice of cast, and his confidence has landed him another victory.

LaLaLamen Today at 7:13PM
I would say yes. I mean, even if you discount “more of a romance” as a joke, Damen’s hand is glued to Laurent’s back. There are hearteyes everywhere!

Rusty (Ravenel) Today at 7:13PM
I think we have enough material to say they are together, lol. All we need is a Facebook status change.

The bathwater splashed lightly back and forth, making a wet line 19/37ths up Damen's body.

tumsa Today at 7:13PM

Transcript: Damen Akielos about the success of “The Summer Palace”
By Washington Post Live

We sat down with Damen Akielos (Ryan Scott in The Summer Palace movie) a few days after its great opening. We wanted to catch up with him, talk about the movie, his future plans, and some life changes. We met in Damen’s new house on a sunny Sunday afternoon, a few hours after he had made it back from a press tour in Europe.

THE WASHINGTON POST: First of all, Damen, big congratulations with the movie!

DAMEN AKIELOS: Thank you! 

THE WASHINGTON POST: You have been very busy with the press tour and promoting the movie, but how does it feel now when it’s out and doing so good?

DAMEN AKIELOS: It’s been a blast, honestly! This role is very close to my heart and I am forever grateful to Makedon [Makedon North, the director of the movie - TWP] for asking me to play Ryan. Looking back, I can’t believe I almost didn’t accept the role, and now I can’t imagine not playing Ryan. And of course, filming it was amazing, the fantastic cast and crew we had, really, I am very lucky.

THE WASHINGTON POST: You and Makedon worked together on Isthima, you got an Oscar for the role. Why were you not sure about The Summer Palace?

DAMEN AKIELOS: [LONG PAUSE] Well, Jokaste and I had just broken up. I was grieving both my future with her and my relationship with Kastor. It wasn’t the best time, let’s put it that way. But my manager was very persistent. [LAUGHS]

THE WASHINGTON POST: I know it was hard work and long hours, but you seemed to have fun on the set!

DAMEN AKIELOS: I did! I blame Laurent, I think Makedon wanted to fire us many times, we laughed so much. So many ruined takes. [GRINS] 

THE WASHINGTON POST: You and Laurent have been praised for your chemistry-

DAMEN AKIELOS: [LAUGHS] Right? I am telling you, all those pranks paid off big time! But joking aside, Laurent helped me a lot through some hard times, I don’t think I could have done the movie without him.

THE WASHINGTON POST: I am sure he would say the same about you.

DAMEN AKIELOS: You don’t know Laurent then. [GRINS] I mean, probably. We were both having some issues outside of work, and it was nice to have someone to talk to. As an actor, you’re supposed to leave it all outside, and he made it easy. When we were on the set, we were Ryan and Andrew, and then in the evenings, we would have Laurent and Damen conversations. 

[At this point we are interrupted by Laurent himself who is arriving at Damen’s house with coffee for everyone. We resume our interview and Laurent joins us.]
