This Town’s Ben Rose on becoming Bardon Quinn and working with ‘brilliant’ co-star Michelle Dockery

Ben Rose is one to watch. Stepping into the vintage Levi’s and army boots of angst-ridden teen, Bardon Quinn, the Ripley-born star joins the cast of Steven Knight’s new drama, This Town.  Set in 1981 amid social tensions and unrest in the Midlands, cousins Dante (Levi Brown) and Bardon (Ben Rose) form a band with pals Jeannie (Eve Austin), Fiona (Freya Parks) and Matty (Shyvonne Ahmmad), using music to figuratively and literally escape their lives.  © BBCBen Rose portrays angst-ridden teen Bardon Quinn After signing on to the series, Ben – a seasoned musician and backing guitarist for Miles Kane – bonded with his cast mates behind the scenes, helping the likes of Levi Brown and Eve Austin get to grips with their instruments.  “We had to do a lot of work together to get us sounding and feeling like a band because they’d never done it before,” reflected Ben. “Obviously, they’re learning everything from scratch and they had a lot of work to do which they did brilliantly, but it was intense.”  “From when …

Christine Quinn Files Restraining Order Against Husband Christian Dumontet After His Arrests

Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has filed for a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband, Christian Dumontet, in the wake of his arrest for alleged domestic violence. According to court documents obtained by ET, Quinn claims Dumontet flew into a fit of rage when she tried to talk to him about the family’s expenses and that she was growing dissatisfied with “his lack of financial contribution and what I perceived as a lack of effort he made to be a true partner.” At this point, Quinn claims, he became angry and started throwing things at her, including decorative items that had metal rods in them. She also claims Dumontet pulled out his penis and started urinating on the floor and threw dog feces at her. Per the court filing, that Quinn claims the marriage had been in deteriorating for some time, but his arrest last week convinced her to leave Dumontet for good. She claims she secretly started making plans to leave the next day with their 3-year-old son, the day Dumontet was arrested on March 19 for alleged domestic …

Sign up to our free Living Well email for advice on living a happier, healthier and longer life Live your life healthier and happier with our free weekly Living Well newsletter Royal-favourite designer Richard Quinn presented a feminine, romantic and floral-themed 2024 autumn/winter collection at London Fashion Week. The curved catwalk, that went around the vast and grade-listed 1901 Ballroom at Andaz London, was signposted by huge bouquets of pink and white roses and puddle-length floral-themed curtains. A live band, including a string quartet and a pianist, quickly put guests into a trance as the show began. The London-based fashion and print designer incorporated vintage-inspired bridal wear that emphasised curves and accentuated long limbs – similar to high society elegance. Quinn is said to be inspired by the late Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family. She made a surprise appearance on the front row of his LFW show in 2018, alongside US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and awarded him with the first The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. The …

The Thrill of Late Antiquity | Josephine Quinn

The Thrill of Late Antiquity | Josephine Quinn

A man looks back on half a life, beginning with his childhood, his schooling, and his higher education. As a student he is absorbed by theological questions, and for many years he rejects the Christian faith of his youth before eventually returning to the church. In the meantime we hear of his migrations as an illustrious teacher between cities on two continents, and the narrative ends with his mother’s death. This is a famous story, but it is no longer Saint Augustine’s alone: the renowned medieval historian (and frequent contributor to these pages) Peter Brown hews close to Augustine’s Confessions of 397 CE in his own more entertaining memoir, Journeys of the Mind. And however deliberately Brown draws them out, there are uncanny parallels between these two lives lived 1,500 years apart. Augustine reports in the autobiographical sketch he wrote in his early forties that he went to school first in his hometown of Thagaste (in modern Algeria), then in Madauros, a day’s journey south. Brown describes his studies first at a prep school in …

Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Joseph Quinn are Marvel’s ‘Fantastic Four’

Marvel has officially unveiled the lead cast of 2025’s The Fantastic Four. Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us, The Mandalorian) will play Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, Pieces of a Woman) will play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things, A Quiet Place: Day One) will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Bear, Andor) will play Ben Grimm/The Thing. Marvel announced the news on Feb. 14 with a celebratory Valentine’s Day card — perhaps an unintentional nod to Pascal, Quinn, and Moss-Bachrach’s status as certified Internet Boyfriends. Tweet may have been deleted This will be the first Fantastic Four movie to be set in the MCU, which all became possible when Disney acquired the rights to the characters in their 2019 acquisition of Fox. We’ve already seen the results of this merger play out in moments teasing the X-Men‘s arrival in the MCU, like Pietro Maximoff’s (Evan Peters) appearance in WandaVision, or in Hank McCoy/Beast’s (Kelsey Grammer) brief cameo in The Marvels‘ mid-credit sequence. The Fantastic Four will be …

The MacRumors Show: One Week With Apple Vision Pro ft. Quinn Nelson

On this week’s episode of The MacRumors Show, Snazzy Labs‘ Quinn Nelson joins us to talk about the first week using Apple’s long-awaited Vision Pro headset.

A significant portion of our dialogue is dedicated to the technical aspects of the Vision Pro, including its display quality, brightness, and the challenges users might face with hand gestures and text selection.

Washington Commanders hiring Dan Quinn as coach, sources say

Washington Commanders hiring Dan Quinn as coach, sources say

The Washington Commanders have an agreement with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to hire him as coach, according to two people with knowledge of the decision. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the team had not yet announced the move. Washington was the final NFL team to fill its head-coaching vacancy. Quinn, 53, spent the past three seasons running the defense for the NFC East-rival Cowboys after five-plus seasons coaching the Atlanta Falcons. Quinn coached the Falcons to a Super Bowl appearance in 2016 before being fired after an 0-5 start in 2020. He became Washington’s choice after Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, considered a top candidate, told teams Tuesday he was staying with Detroit and the Seahawks hired Baltimore defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald on Wednesday. Controlling owner Josh Harris, new general manager and head of football operations Adam Peters and Quinn give the organization a much-desired new approach after four years of Ron Rivera in charge of everything turned out to be a disappointment. Harris was …

The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II

The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II

The Royal Salute tradition began in 1953 at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, where two royal salutes, one military and the other a world-first – a decorated flagon of aged Speyside Scotch whiskies – marked the occasion. To this day, a new Royal Salute expression greets each significant event in the British monarchy, from the union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the most recent milestone in 2023 – the coronation of King Charles III. Distinguished by the exclusive use of whiskies aged 21 years and beyond, this practice also gave rise to the distillery’s informal motto: We begin where others end. This visionary approach led the house to embark on an exceptional journey with the Fashion Collection by Richard Quinn in 2021. At its core, Royal Salute is a celebration of British excellence, and so in its collaboration with the designer, it heralded a new chapter honouring British artistry and design. The first release quickly became a coveted collectible for its milestone meeting of whisky and fashion. Consisting of two bottles, each …
