Maisie Williams Filmed Her Final ‘Game of Thrones’ Scene Solo: ‘Arya’s Always Bloody Alone’
Maisie Williams is done playing the girl with no name, having wrapped her role as the “Game of Thrones” vicious teen assassin, Arya Stark, back in July. Though she teased her final bow with a picture when she was done, Williams has now given some solid hints about how her face-shifting character might go out when the show’s eighth and final season airs next year — and it’s pretty sweet, if not lonely.

Williams told The Guardian in an interview published Wednesday that her last “Game of Thrones” shoot was “beautiful,” and she “ended on the perfect scene.” However, spoiler alert, the actress said it was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of who she was acting with — which was nobody.

“I was alone – shocker!” Williams said. “Arya’s always bloody alone. But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill,

‘Sesame Street’ Puppeteer Caroll Spinney Retires From Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch Roles

‘Sesame Street’ Puppeteer Caroll Spinney Retires From Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch Roles
Caroll Spinney has been a television mainstay since 1969, but his face has rarely made an appearance.

Disguised beneath a frock of bright yellow feathers and an orange bill, the “Sesame Street” puppeteer was the heart and soul behind Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since the show’s premiere almost 50 years ago.

Now, at the age of 84, Spinney told the New York Times that he is retiring from “Sesame Street” after nearly half a century playing some of the show’s most iconic characters. Come Thursday, Spinney will enter the “Sesame Street” studios in Astoria, Queens for the last time

Roseanne Barr Releases Official Statement on Being Killed Off ‘The Conners,’ Slams ABC for ‘Grim and Morbid’ Decision

Roseanne Barr Releases Official Statement on Being Killed Off ‘The Conners,’ Slams ABC for ‘Grim and Morbid’ Decision
[Warning: If you can’t tell by the headline above, spoilers follow.]

ABC’s “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners” kicked off its season premiere with confirmation that the character once played by Roseanne Barr had been killed off the series after suffering an opioid overdose from pills she was taking to treat a knee injury. Barr took to her Twitter page for an instant reaction to her character’s fate following the conclusion of the episode, defiantly tweeting, “I Ain’T Dead, Bitches!!!!” The actress then published a longer, more official statement along with her rabbi, Shmuley Boteach.

“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of ‘The Conners,’ all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character,” Barr and Boteach wrote. “That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

Christmas Cheer! Pillsbury Just Released Elf-Themed Sugar Cookies Featuring Buddy Himself

It’s time to spread some holiday cheer!

With a little over two months left until Christmas, Pillsbury has released new ready-to-bake sugar cookies inspired by Elf— the 2003 film that follows one of Santa’s elves who learns he’s actually a human and goes to meet his biological father in New York City.

Being that Elf’s main character Buddy (played by Will Ferrell) was obsessed with all things sugar, it’s only fitting that the cookies feature a design of his green and yellow elf hat.

The cookies, which commemorate the 15th anniversary of the film, can be found at Target,

In the Year 2018, We Are All This Young Woman, Sobbing Over a Hug From Prince Harry
A hug from Prince Harry? Yeah, we'd sob too. During the famous royal's tour of Australia with wife Meghan Markle, he greeted fans during a walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens of Melbourne, and one young woman in particular had an extraemotional reaction.

It's no secret that Harry's got quite a fan base - from infants to the elderly - out to see him at each of his tour stops. But for 19-year-old India Brown, getting a hug from the prince was the reason for happy tears.

"Prince Harry just hugged me," India told The Herald Sun. "I didn't expect it to happen because it's actually against protocol. . . . He is someone I've looked up to for many, many, many years. Everything he stands for is amazing. I said, 'I know it's against royal protocol, but can I please have a hug?' He hugged me and I burst into tears.

American Horror Story Will Be Back For a 10th Season of Confusing the Hell Out of Us
We're still waiting for the premiere of American Horror Story season eight, but FX has already granted us another season! The network previously renewed the series for season nine, and now season 10 is officially a go. Even though Ryan Murphy has signed a deal to produce new TV shows and films exclusively on Netflix, his current shows on other networks, like Ahs, American Crime Story, and Pose, will continue to be overseen by him as long as they're on air. As for any seasons beyond the 10th, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said that's totally up to Murphy.

"A lot of that comes down to Ryan and whether he still feels inspired about it," he told Deadline. "Part of what's cool about American Horror Story is its anthology nature. So it comes down to whether Ryan and his collaborators, like [showrunner] Tim Minear, come up with stories that they are excited about.

Meghan Markle Had a Little Scare During the Royal Tour, but She Laughed It Off Like a Champ
It may be the Halloween season, but we don't think Meghan Markle was planning on getting a quick scare during her royal tour stop in Melbourne, Australia, with Prince Harry.

The couple attended a reception at Victoria's Government House on Oct. 18 and saw a number of school displays, but one in particular left Meghan giggling. While racing her husband using 3D printed cars, Meghan was suddenly taken by surprise as they took off.

"I was not expecting that!" she exclaimed, laughing with shock from the demonstration. The Trinity Grammar School boys asked her if she'd like another chance, to which she replied, "No, thank you!" through her giggles. Watch Meghan's real-time reaction above, and then read on to see more snaps from the pair's day in Melbourne.

It's Time to Answer Hill House's Biggest Mystery: What's Behind That Red Door?
Warning: Big spoilers for The Haunting of Hill House ahead!

I could sit here and type out praise for Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House all day long. The horror series effectively delivers genuine scare after scare while also serving up a gut-wrenching story of grief, love, and the lengths we'll go to protect our family. Oh, and it also unpacks a handful of compelling mysteries over the course of its 10 episodes that will gnaw away at you until you reach the final few scenes. One of the biggest among them is: what's behind that freakin' red door? Before I get to that, though, let's back up a second and review.

Olivia (Carla Gugino) and Hugh Crain (Henry Thomas) move their five children into the sprawling, decaying Hill House estate for a few months one Summer in hopes of flipping it and making a ton of money off the sale.

How American Horror Story: Apocalypse Director Sarah Paulson Brought Closure to the Murder House
Now that was the crossover episode we've been dreaming of. American Horror Story: Apocalypse just gave us pretty much everything we could have asked for during its trip back to the Murder House. With help from Madison (Emma Roberts) and Behold (Billy Porter), we saw Vivien (Connie Britton) and Ben (Dylan McDermott) rekindle their marriage! We saw Violet (Taissa Farmiga) and a now evil-free Tate (Evan Peters) find their way back together. We saw Moira (Frances Conroy) move on, to be with her mother, who forgave and thanked her for pulling the plug on her. We also saw Ben cry while staring into the sun and masturbating, which is not something we were particularly asking for, but we got it anyway! Most importantly,...

Consider This Wishful Thinking, but What If Nicky Is Actually Still Alive on This Is Us?

Consider This Wishful Thinking, but What If Nicky Is Actually Still Alive on This Is Us?
This Is Us has been full of crazy twists over the past three seasons, but one of the biggest curveballs was that Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) actually has a younger brother named Nicky (Michael Angarano). In the latest episode, "Vietnam," we got a closer look at the Pearson boys' bond, and the whole thing is incredibly bittersweet. Just like with Jack's storyline, we're slowly falling in love with a character that is no longer alive in present day. While Jack tells Rebecca that his younger brother died in the war, what if the show is actually setting us up for another shocking twist?

Consider this wishful thinking, but maybe Nicky is still alive. Since episode four aired, a few theories have been circulating about the fate of the younger Pearson brother, and they're pretty convincing. Perhaps when Jack says Nicky died, he means that the brother he knew died, and the war ultimately changed him.

Nonetheless, Chris insists he taught younger brothers Chris and Liam "everything they know", from how to stir a mischief to using their imagination.

On this week's all-new Total Divas, the retired WWE star bravely opened up about the harassment she's received after "private photos were stolen and released" to the public. According to the British-born athlete, she was inundated with disparaging remarks about her body and private life following this scandal. "I've had enough of people trying to degrade me all the time," Paige explained in a confessional. "Now it's just really hard to go out and say hello to the fans.

Oh, Wow - Iron Fist Has Been Canceled by Netflix After 2 Seasons

In a move that's both surprising and somehow not surprising in the least, Netflix has decided to cancel Iron Fist.

The critically panned Marvel superhero series debuted its second season in early September, attempting to improve upon the gripes both fans and the media had with it during the first go-around. Season two ends with Colleen Wing (a bright light within the series) teaming up with Misty Knight, which suggested the Daughters of the Dragon weren't far off. Apparently that storyline and the massive cliffhanger the second season leaves off on weren't enough to save the show. It marks the first Marvel show to get the ax from the streaming giant.

"Marvel's Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix," Netflix and Marvel said in a joint statement to Deadline on Oct. 12. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all
