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
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
[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.

This Is the Likeliest Place For the Duchess of Sussex to Give Birth
It's official: there's about to be a new addition to the royal family! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they're expecting their first child next Spring, and everyone has royal baby fever all over again. For the next several months, tons of speculation will be swirling about everything, from the baby's potential name to its titles and even its citizenship status. While some of these have already been answered, one of the big questions yet to be revealed is where Meghan will give birth to her and Prince Harry's child.

For security reasons, obviously, the location of the royal birth is not typically announced in advance. History, however, can help us with a pretty good guess. All of the upcoming baby's first cousins - Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis - were born at St. Mary's Hospital in London. This is also the hospital where Harry himself and his older brother,

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.

Roseanne Barr Is Not Pleased With the "Morbid" Way The Conners Killed Off Her Character

Roseanne Barr Is Not Pleased With the
The Conners premiered its first episode on Tuesday night, finally putting to rest any speculation about how the Roseanne spinoff deals with the absence of Roseanne Barr's titular character.

Barr's initial reboot of the show was of course axed by ABC after a string of vile, racist tweets and abrasive behavior from the 65-year-old, and she revealed during an interview a few weeks before the The Conners premiere that the show planned on killing off Roseanne Conner via opioid overdose. Now that we know that is indeed how the character dies - she overdoses on medication prescribed to her following knee surgery - Barr is speaking out about how disappointed she is with the twist in a joint statement 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,

Netflix Officially Grants Elite a Second Season

Over the past few years, Netflix has been expanding its original programming more and more. Now, they've even begun expanding into foreign-language original series. The first was Cable Girls, a historical drama about 1920s phone operators which is headed into its fourth season. For its second Spanish-language original drama, Netflix has produced Elite, a Gossip Girl-esque teen soap. Set in one of the most exclusive private schools in Spain, the contemporary drama follows a handful of working-class scholarship students who are thrown into this privileged, high-drama milieu.

The series debuted on Friday, Oct. 5 with an eight-episode first season. But as we all know, it can be frustrating to fall in love with a show, only to have it never see a second season. So will Netflix be producing another season of Elite? At first Netflix didn't want to comment one way or another, likely because the streaming giant wanted

In Case You Haven't Heard, Mallory Might Be the Most Important Character on Ahs: Apocalypse
If there's anything we've learned from watching several seasons of American Horror Story, it's that everything matters. Whether it's allusions to an overarching theme, clues to a grand theory, or callbacks to another season, nothing is simply a throwaway. So when presented with a mystery like Apocalypse's Mallory, we have to look at everything presented to figure out exactly what's behind that Cindy Lou Who topknot. Is Mallory just a powerful witch, or is she a great deal more?

So far, everything we've seen of Mallory points to her being a witch with an interesting set of abilities. Myrtle even suggests that Cordelia consider Mallory as the next Supreme, which serves as incredibly high praise from the older witch since she's seen a few Supremes in her day. But there's more to Mallory than just her powers - her entire imagery preapocalypse gives us angelic vibes. From her innocent persona,

Meghan Markle Proudly Wore a Pasta Necklace Given to Her by a Cute Kid
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had no shortage of sweet interactions with kids during their trip to Australia, but the most recent one might just top them all. While greeting the crowds along Government House Drive in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, Meghan spotted a young boy named Gavin who was holding a sign saying "I made you a necklace." Crouching down to meet him, she happily accepted the handmade gift and put it on immediately.

According to News.com.au, Gavin made the necklace from pasta dipped in gold paint, and while it's worlds away from Meghan's usual accessory choices (which often come courtesy of Princess Diana's jewelry box), we reckon she pulls off the statement piece perfectly. Meghan continued to wear it as she and Harry worked the crowds, shaking hands and dishing out hugs in their continued efforts to wave goodbye to old-fashioned royal protocol. Take
