sarsgaard Peter Sarsgaard, Kristin Scott Thomas to Star in Seagull on BroadwayChekhov’s The Seagull is back on Broadway, this time with indie movie hipster god Peter Sarsgaard as Trigorin, pretty Brit actress Kristin Scott Thomas as Arkadina and Zoe Kazan (featured in the forthcoming film August) as Masha. Pretty great casting, especially considering Ms. Thomas’ Olivier award for best actress for the last time she performed The Seagull. But how will Mr. Sarsgaard do compared to Alan Cumming’s performance as the broody famous writer who woos an older woman and a budding actress in the Classic Stage Company’s production last spring?

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
