That's a wrap for Keegan Allen!
The 27-year-old actor is the latest main cast member to say goodbye to Pretty Little Liars, filming his final scenes for the show on Tuesday.
Allen, who has been on the show since its first season, couldn't help but get emotional bidding farewell to his co-stars -- and on-screen love Troian Bellisario in particular.
"I absolutely love you Troian Bellisario," Allen captioned an Instagram snap of the actress playing guitar. "And as our characters drift off into space and away from our control, I remain grateful I could inhabit their existence with you right there to ground and protect me. I will miss these subtle moments and quick, brief glimpses of you and this whole surreal experience."
In these last hours embodying our characters, I want to »
Saying goodbye is rarely easy, especially when you’re saying goodbye to someone you really care deeply about. In fact, having meaningful relationships with people in general isn’t very easy, but thankfully we can always count on movies to distract us from real life. Of course, watching someone say goodbye in a movie is often just as emotionally difficult, as anyone who has seen The Iron Giant can surely attest. Recognizing that there have been a whole bunch of powerful goodbyes in the history of film, CineFix has put together a list of the “21 Best Character Departures Of All Time.”
The video is more than just a rundown of the rankings, as it also offers quick explanations for why these departures are so impactful or memorable. The list includes the aforementioned Iron Giant (though it thankfully doesn’t show the “Superman” moment, as then we’d never stop ...

The following editorial was co-authored by the Oscar-nominated team behind “Virguna,” the director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara, whose short documentary “The White Helmets” launches on Netflix globally today.
As the U.S, and Russia agree upon another tentative ceasefire in Syria, civilians on the ground are not holding their breath that the fighting will end. Syrian civilians have been let down far too many times. Instead, the Syrian people are continuing to do as they have done for the past few years, taking humanitarian matters into their own hands to minimize loss of life.
The White Helmets, a group of nearly 3,000 civilian volunteer rescue workers, exemplify this spirit. These are the men and women who run into smoldering rubble, the aftermath of airstrikes, dig out the dead and injured. They come from all walks of life and have each pledged to save anyone in need, no matter their creed, »

Last Year’s Winner: “Inside Amy Schumer” Was It an Upset? No. Still Eligible? Yes. Hot Streak: “SNL” has been nominated for Outstanding Variety Series nine years in a row. Previously, it was nominated for four straight years between 2001 and 2004, but it hasn’t won the category since 1993. Fun Fact: This is only the second year of this category’s existence. Previously, all variety series — sketch and talk — competed against each other.
“Inside Amy Schumer” took home the trophy last year, making it the defending champ of the Variety Sketch category. But that was the year of Schumer, where the show really took off as “Trainwreck” dominated the box office. Can she keep things rolling in the new year without a hit film promoting her (extremely great) Comedy Central series?
Perhaps, but a »

Saying goodbye can be so hard.
Rizzoli & Isles Season 7 Episode 13 mixed heartfelt video tributes with one last case. There were lots of tearful goodbyes as Jane, Maura and Vince all quit the police force to move onto new adventures.
Jane will be teaching FBI recruits, Maura will be in Paris writing a novel, and Vince is retiring.
After seven years with these characters, I almost wish there was a spin-off series showing what everyone is doing next.
I hate endings. The truth is, I hate beginnings too. I like middles, the comfortable steady sameness.
Vince Permalink: I hate endings. The truth is, I hate beginnings too. I like middles, the comfortable steady... Added: September 05, 2016
I agree with Vince and several others – goodbyes are hard and not fun.
Almost all the video tributes talked about how these people are family to each other, and not just the Rizzolis. The characters have »

It's not a goodbye, it's a see you later. Perhaps that's just one of the many quotes going through Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' head after sending their eldest son off to college. Before arriving at any dorm room, however, the daytime talk-show host took to Instagram to share a photo of her three kids. And yes, 19-year-old Michael Consuelos was the main man on mama's mind. "Saying goodbye to big bro, the college freshman," she shared on social media. "(Whilst conspiring to take over his bedroom.)"

R.I.P. classic Monopoly. R.I.P childhood. R.I.P humanity. Just kidding, it's not that dramatic, but this news is still pretty freaking unreal. Monopoly, the game we all grew up with, is doing away with literally the most important part of the game. Following in the footsteps of Disney parks, Monopoly is also getting rid of their paper money, believe it or not. Saying goodbye to Disney Dollars was traumatic enough, and now Monopoly has to go and rip our hearts out too. Think about it; how will the kiddos of tomorrow learn to make it rain? Crucial knowledge. Instead of cash money, Monopoly will be all about the plastic. The new game is called 'Monopoly Ultimate Banking,' which sounds like the name of every »
Alex Rodriguez will retire from baseball at the end of the week. He will play his final game Friday at Yankee Stadium, according to The New York Post. A tearful Rodriguez announced the news in a press conference Sunday morning at Yankee stadium. "This is a tough day," the 41-year-old said. "I love this game, and I love this team. And today, I'm saying goodbye to both. He also talked about his 18-year-old self, and the pride he has for his accomplishments in his more than two decade-long career. "This is also a proud day," he said. "I was 18 when »

Like all the best fairy tales, Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth is a much more grown-up effort than its fantasy trappings let on. Sure, it’s directed by the man who introduced both The Muppets and Sesame Street to the world, but don’t be fooled by all of the puppets and cute creatures and catchy songs: this is a film geared at children but actually about the end of childhood. Bittersweet, that.
On its face, Labyrinth offers a traditional take on the hero’s journey codified by Joseph Campbell: Jennifer Connelly’s sixteen-year-old Sarah wishes her baby brother would be taken away by Goblin King Jareth (the late, great David Bowie) and, when he is, must travel to a fantasy realm to rescue him. On a deeper and darker level, however, the screenplay by Monty Python’s own Terry Jones is the story of a young woman maturing into an adult, »

It seems production has ceased on Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII. Though there may still be a few pickups here and there, both Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley - who we know will sport a new look for the film - have revealed that they've shot their final scenes, and the movie held its wrap party last weekend. Many fans expect the official title for Episode VIII to be announced during Star Wars Celebration over the weekend, but even if that doesn't happen we're bound to get a few new details. Take a look at the recent Instagram posts by Ridley and Hamill below. And that is a wrap on Star Wars Episode VIII. My heart is brimming. #reyout A photo posted by @daisyridley on Jul 13, 2016 at 8:25am Pdt Saying goodbye is hard when you've had the time of your life. I can't thank the cast and crew enough, »
Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out just seven short months ago, but we are all already looking ahead to the seemingly bright future of the franchise, now under Disney's control. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due out this December, but we all have burning questions we want answered, and that is why we are all very much looking forward to Star Wars: Episode VIII next year. The wait is still long, we just got that much closer to the movie become a reality as both Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill have finished shooting.
Both actors took to their personal Instagram accounts to confirm that they have indeed completed their respective duties, as far as principal photography for Episode VIII is concerned. We had suspected that Hamill was very close to finished, as he teased on Twitter last week that he had finally shaved his "contractually obligated beard, »
Earlier this month, Mark Hamill revealed that production wraps on Star Wars: Episode VIII on Friday, July 22, which coincidentally falls on Star Wars Day at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Unfortunately, there will be no Star Wars panel at Sdcc this year, most likely because Star Wars Celebration is taking place in London this weekend. While there are still a few days left of shooting, both Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley have confirmed on social media that they have both wrapped on this highly-anticipated sequel and the wrap party has already happened. With that, we get a video from Luke Skywalker himself that shows some very sexy Stormtroopers dancing for the crowd
Daisy Ridley announced that she had wrapped on Star Wars 8 by posting an image of her beloved character Rey holding a lightsaber on Instagram. The actress also revealed her "heart is brimming" in the post, but her co-star »

With X-Men: Apocalypse settling for just over $500m at the global box office, in what direction should the series head next? A few thoughts.
The X-Men franchise has never been one to set the box office alight in the way that, say, The Avengers does, with 2014’s Days Of Future Past’s box office topping out at $748 million world wide. Granted, X-Men kickstarted the current cinematic superhero revolution to much acclaim but after the initial two entries in the franchise, public and critical reception began to dwindle, as did box office returns.
X-Men: First Class proved to be the creative shot in the arm that the franchise needed and with Days Of Future Past hitting the highest box office results yet, it was expected that Apocalypse would catapult the series nearer to the billion-dollar club.
But it didn’t. In fact, X-Men: Apocalypse’s take is just north of $500m, »
Bonnie may be channeling her inner Buffy on Friday’s Vampire Diaries (The CW, 8/7c), but there’s one misconception about Ms. Bennett’s new role that Kat Graham would like to clear up: “Bonnie is not evil, she is justified.”

“I’ve always felt that Bonnie was a hero, and what could be seen as an antihero, to a lot of characters in the show,” Graham tells TVLine. “She is never lukewarm, and whenever she is placed in the middle, I’ve always found discomfort in justifying her decisions for that. »
