Even "Game of Thrones" Superfans Might Not Know These Facts About Sophie Turner

  • Popsugar
Even
There's no doubt that Game of Thrones, over the course of the last eight years, has turned its cast of mostly unknown leading actors into bonafide A-list stars. Among the biggest breakouts of the series is Sophie Turner, who was just 14 years old when she began filming her first scenes as Sansa Stark in 2010. Because she's been in the spotlight for most of her young-adult life, it feels like we know everything about her, from her fashion sense to her love life and more. But there's probably still a few things you might not know about her!

Sophie was born in 1996 and grew up in Warwickshire, England, with her family. She began acting with a local theater company, the Playbox Theatre, when she was just 3 years old.

  • Popsugar
The Madeleine McCann disappearance case has intrigued people across the world for more than a decade. When the 3-year-old girl disappeared while on a family vacation in Portugal, her family was immediately thrust into the spotlight. Madeleine's case is the subject of a new Netflix documentary, and is one of many true crime stories being highlighted in today's true crime boom, which is drawing attention back to her parents as well.

Madeleine McCann's parents are Kate and Gerry McCann, who both were doctors, according to Country Living. Kate also became an author in the years following her daughter's disappearance, writing a 2011 memoir about their experience entitled Madeleine: Our Daughter's Disappearance and the Continuing Search for Her. At the time of Madeleine's disappearance in 2007, the couple were both in their late 30s.

Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish Still Remember Everything That Went Down on Pretty Little Liars

Us: The Voice Lupita Nyong'o's Evil Character Uses Was Inspired by a Real Person
There are a few things you should know before watching Jordan Peele's latest horror masterpiece, Us: don't see it without a buddy (you'll need someone to help sneak you out of the theater when you inevitably pee your pants out of fear); be prepared to never want to use scissors ever again; and brace yourself for the bone-chilling voice Lupita Nyong'o uses as her evil doppelgänger, named "Red."

Technically, Nyong'o plays two roles in the film: the paranoid but relatively normal suburban wife and mother of two named Adelaide, and Red, the jumpsuit-wearing identical killer who comes after her. When Red crashes Adelaide's beachside vacation with her family, she's not alone - she brings along demonic versions of Adelaide's husband, son, and daughter, too, and explains they're called the "Tethered." Adelaide's family physically looks exactly like their Tethered counterparts, down to the way they creepily mimic their movements. But

Everything You Need to Know About Catch-22 Before You Catch the Series on Hulu
You've probably heard an example of a "catch-22" before, but if you were one of the few high school students who wasn't assigned to read Joseph Heller's satirical 1961 novel that inspired the phrase, here's the gist. Taking place during World War II, Catch-22 follows a Us Army Air Forces bomber named Captain John Yossarian and his fellow airmen while they are based on an island in the Mediterranean. The pilots all desperately want to be sent home, but unfortunately, they're all caught in a no-win situation because of an implicit military rule called Catch-22.

According to the rule, a pilot deemed crazy is not fit to fly a plane and should be sent home. One can only be deemed crazy by the army psychiatrist through a medical evaluation. Requesting a medical evaluation implies that the pilot is sane enough to be self-aware. Here's the real issue: if Captain Yossarian

8 Potential Names For Harry and Meghan's Future Royal
As the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child gets closer, we imagine the royal couple already have a few possible names picked out. Even though Harry and Meghan are keeping the baby's sex a surprise, it doesn't hurt to speculate what the little one's moniker will be. This will be the pair's first child, so we can't make any guesses based off the names of former children. However, there's a long tradition of family names being handed down to royal babies, so it's likely that Harry and Meghan's future child will be given a name with some history. Here are just a few of the names we could see for the forthcoming royal baby.

Vanessa Hudgens Has a New Netflix Christmas Movie - No, It's Not a Princess Switch Sequel

Vanessa Hudgens Has a New Netflix Christmas Movie - No, It's Not a Princess Switch Sequel
Vanessa Hudgens is treating us to yet another Christmas movie on Netflix, and no, it's not a sequel to The Princess Switch. Netflix hasn't confirmed any news about a sequel to that gem of a holiday movie, but not to worry - this one sounds just as good, if not better. Hudgens will executive produce and star in The Knight Before Christmas, "a movie about a medieval English knight who is magically transported to present day where he ends up falling for a high school science teacher," Netflix revealed on Twitter. Time travel and romance? Oh heck yes.

How Travel Channel's Kellee Edwards Is Inspiring Black Girls to Love the Great Outdoors

  • Popsugar
Several minutes into her speech at the 2019 Los Angeles Travel and Adventure Show, Kellee Edwards, the host of Travel Channel's Mysterious Islands (and the first black woman to lead a show on the network), has encountered a small issue: she's the sole black woman scheduled to speak at the two-day conference, and her presentation about what it means to connect with communities while traveling isn't working the way it should - but much like every other aspect of her life, she's prepared to take control of the situation with authority, fearlessness, and a smile.

Born on Chicago's South Side, Edwards is used to succeeding in environments that would be a challenge for others. As a licensed pilot, certified scuba diver, and seasoned mountain climber, calling Edwards the future of adventure travel would be an understatement. Her journey is a significant accomplishment given the overwhelmingly white male industry she has been called to pursue,

Everything About Jennifer Lopez's New Movie Sounds Amazing, but the Cast Is Especially Insane
The summer of scamming continues! In news that will basically revolutionize the movie industry as we know it, Jennifer Lopez is leading a film inspired by a 2016 New York Magazine article that follows a group of former strippers who finesse $20,000 from their Wall Street clientele through drugs, strip clubs, and the pure hustle. Not only will Hustlers be directed by Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist director Lorene Scafaria, but it features an all-female cast that rivals the randomly amazing cast of Ocean's 8. Two divas from the block, the American princess of Crazy Rich Asians, a Riverdale sweetheart, and more? Seriously, take my money already!

Check out the cast ahead and keep your eyes peeled for more news as filming in NYC begins March 22.

There's a Pretty Cute Story Behind Luke P.'s Bachelorette Audition

  • Popsugar
Hannah Brown will have no fewer than 33 suitors on The Bachelorette's upcoming season. And the literal dozens of men are a lot to keep track of, especially since ABC hasn't shared the Bachelorette contestants' bios yet. But we do know a little about the handful of lucky contestants who already met Hannah on The Bachelor's live finale, one of whom was Luke P. He told Hannah he'd been hoping she'd be the next Bachelorette star, which was probably a flattering thing for her to hear. Could he be the future Mr. Alabama?

Thanks to a report from Luke's local newspaper, fans know that his full name is Luke Parker and that he's from Gainesville, Ga. Luke has already left Georgia for the show's filming, but his family talked to The Gainesville Times about his journey to being on the show. It sounds like faith is pretty important to the former college baseball player,

Exactly Why There's No Spring Season of Dancing With the Stars This Year
If you've been watching Dancing With the Stars for a while, you'll know that the ABC reality competition has a pretty set pattern: one cycle in the Fall and one cycle in the Spring, every year. Occasionally, it shakes things up a little - for instance, last Spring's cycle was a shortened season featuring athletes only - but the schedule is pretty much always the same. That is, until this year. For the first time in years, this Spring will not see a new season of Dancing With the Stars; the show isn't scheduled to return until later this Fall. So what's the reasoning behind this unexpected decision?

Officially, ABC gave no specific reason for the scheduling shake-up. It's speculated, however, that the show took a cycle off to recover and perhaps revamp the aging series, especially after the controversial results of its most recent season. To recap, the Fall

Yes, That's Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee in Netflix's Mötley Crüe Movie

  • Popsugar
If you somehow haven't heard yet, Netflix is coming out with a Mötley Crüe biopic, and it looks seriously wild. Based on Mötley Crüe's bestselling 2001 autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band, this long-awaited biopic will follow the story of the heavy metal band's rise from obscurity to super stardom and international fame during the course of the 1980s. What's even crazier than the stories drugs, alcohol, and groupies told in the book (which are supposedly all true) is the incredibly stacked cast, and we can't imagine a better person to play Mötley Crüe's founding member and drummer Tommy Lee than Machine Gun Kelly.

Plenty of people were surprised to see Colson Baker playing Felix (better known as the jerk who stole the car) in Netflix's insanely popular post-apocalyptic thriller Bird Box (pictured ahead), but they shouldn't be. The 28-year-old Cleveland-born rapper has actually been adding

James Cameron's Terminator 6 Gets a Release Date And an Ominous New Title

  • Popsugar
The film previously known as Terminator 6 just got an upgrade - the gritty installment in the sci-fi action franchise has received an official title and release date, according to The Wrap. From now on, we can all refer to James Cameron's latest stab at the story as Terminator: Dark Fate.

Both of the stars from the 1984 original, Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, have agreed to return for the new installment, which will pick up where T2: Judgement Day left off, ignoring the three subsequent sequels. Hamilton hasn't appeared as Sarah Connor since 1991, but the reboot is in familiar hands. James Cameron, who made the first two films in the franchise, wrote the story and is on board as producer, while Deadpool's Tim Miller is set to direct. The writers room also included David Goyer (The Dark Knight), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel), and Josh Friedman (The Sarah Connor Chronicles).

The Significant Role Charles Manson Plays in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Quentin Tarantino doesn't need an introduction - he's the auteur who brought us gratuitously gory films such as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Django Unchained. Now, he's onto his ninth film with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a $100 million project that convinced even Leonardo DiCaprio to take a hefty pay cut. Since Tarantino only plans to make 10 movies, this is certainly going to be a treat, boasting a cast of the fine actors to prove it. In the movie, the writer-director crafts a narrative that touches upon one of the most disturbing murders in Hollywood history - that of celebrity Sharon Tate under the orders of Charles Manson.

Fictional Elements

The Manson murders won't be the main focus of the plot, which is still being kept under wraps. But we'll certainly see everyone involved in the case, including Tate (Margot Robbie), Manson (Damon Herriman), Manson's followers, and a handful of '60s celebrities.
