Maisie Williams Filmed Her Final ‘Game of Thrones’ Scene Solo: ‘Arya’s Always Bloody Alone’

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

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.

Meghan Markle Confided in This Person About Her Pregnancy Before Telling the Royal Family
Meghan Markle is going to be a mom! On Monday, Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry are expecting their first child.

The Conners Premiere Confirms the Dark Way Roseanne Barr's Character Is Killed Off
Ever since Roseanne Barr's racist tweets got the reboot of her '90s comedy Roseanne canceled on ABC, fans of the family sitcom have been wondering one thing: how will the spinoff, The Conners, work without her? Now we finally have an answer, thanks to the show's Oct. 16 premiere.

Warning: spoilers for the first episode of The Conners ahead!

The episode, "Keep on Truckin," picks up just three weeks after Roseanne's season 10 finale, finding the remaining Conners sitting at the kitchen table. Although the family initially believes that the Conner matriarch passed away due to a complication from her knee surgery, it's eventually revealed by the Coroner's Office autopsy that Roseanne overdosed on opioids.

At first Dan (John Goodman) is reluctant to accept this as her cause of death, choosing to blame her unexpected demise on her body's inability to handle such a serious surgery on top of her myriad of other health problems.

Fran Drescher Wants Cardi B to Star in the Nanny Reboot, and I Dare You to Name a Better Duo
Fran Drescher wants to party with Cardi. The actress recently talked about a possible revival of The Nanny and mentioned that if the '90s sitcom were to be rebooted, she'd want Cardi B to star. "Wouldn't she be great as my daughter?" she said in an interview with People. Maybe I'm wrong, but Drescher might be onto something here.

The inspiration behind her genius idea came from one of Cardi B's more recent Instagram posts. Last month during Milan Fashion Week, the rapper stepped out wearing leopard print from head to toe and shouted Fran out in her photo's caption. When asked about Cardi's homage, Drescher told People she was "so flattered."

"I just thought she paid homage to me wearing animal print and said 'Fran Drescher,'" she said. "And then I got my juices flowing and thought, 'Wait a minute, she's from New York, we both have funny voices,

In order to give us an inside look at just how this tragic, incredible true story came together, The Crown's star hopped on the phone with us and shed light on everything from getting her portrayal of Janet just right to how she perfected her onscreen dynamic with Gosling.

The Surprisingly Understandable Reason Royals Aren't Supposed to Eat Shellfish

The Surprisingly Understandable Reason Royals Aren't Supposed to Eat Shellfish
Although it's unlikely that we'll find ourselves hosting a meal for the British royals anytime soon, there is one item that you definitely won't find on our menu: shellfish. The entire royal family is advised to keep their distance from shellfish - including shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, mussels, oysters, and scallops - and the reason isn't as complicated as you might think.

Shellfish has a high risk of causing foodborne illness, and given their hectic travel schedules, royals simply don't have time for food poisoning. As well as shellfish, it is also suggested that royals avoid rare meat, spicy foods, and tap water, especially while traveling abroad. Seafood is one of Meghan Markle's favorite cuisines, so we can't imagine this guideline is going to be easy for her to stick with (but it will be probably

Holy Sh*t! Did You Catch This Vietnamese Woman Wearing Jack's Necklace on This Is Us?

Holy Sh*t! Did You Catch This Vietnamese Woman Wearing Jack's Necklace on This Is Us?
Warning: spoilers for the This Is Us episode "Vietnam" ahead.

Man, those This Is Us writers are geniuses, and the latest episode can absolutely attest to that. Episode four, "Vietnam," tells the story of Jack Pearson's past - from the birth of his younger brother Nicky, all the way through his life-changing time in Vietnam - but the subtle hints throughout the episode that connect so strongly to his future are why we can't get enough of this show. Since the series premiered more than two years ago, Jack's past remained a mystery, his relationship with his brother was rarely explored, and the most we knew about his beloved necklace was that he gave it to Kevin after the boy was injured during his high school football game.

During this week's episode, we see Jack's necklace for the first time on a mystery woman at his camp in Vietnam.

Meghan Markle Doesn't Get a Salary - Here's What She Has Instead

When Princess Eugenie of York married Jack Brooksbank on Oct. 12, a lot of commentary was made on the the idea of Princess Eugenie as a "nonworking" royal - that is, one who has a real job in the real world rather than carrying out royal duties full-time. And it's not just Eugenie (whose job is as a director of an art gallery): many of the lower-ranked royals hold full-time jobs. Her sister Princess Beatrice, for instance, works in the business world for software company Afiniti, and her cousin Peter Philips (son of Princess Anne), is the managing director for Sports Entertainment Limited. But top-tier royals don't hold full-time "real" jobs - as Meghan Markle found out when she married Prince Harry and had to give up her acting career. Without a normal job, how does the duchess make money now?
