Nic Cage is the Meryl Streep of bats–t-crazy characters

If you want to get at the essence of Nicolas Cage, you’ll find it in his new, bananas revenge thriller, “Mandy.” His whole career may well have been leading up to this moment. Recently, I rewatched 1987’s “Moonstruck,” in which a fledgling Cage turns the volume all the way up in one scene: “I lost…

Season 2 Brings New Dangers for the ‘The Gifted’ Characters

As Season 2 of The Gifted begins, a new age is dawning while mutants are fractured. Here’s what to expect from your favorite characters when The Gifted: Dawn of the Mutant Age premieres on Tuesday, September 25th at 8 PM on FOX.

The Strucker Family

The Strucker family is the heart of Fox’s The Gifted. The family finds themselves at the center of the mutant drama when kids Lauren–played by Natalie Alyn Lind–and Andy– played by Percy Hynes White– discover they have powers. This puts them at odds with their father Reed, played by Stephen Moyer, who works as an attorney prosecuting mutants. However, once he discovers that his children are mutants, he abandons his job.

The Strucker family joins the Mutant Underground, a group aimed at protecting mutants. They are in hiding from the Sentinel Services, an organization which hunts mutants. Caitlin Strucker, played by Amy Acker, is able to put her nursing skills to use by helping those injured while her husband uses his knowledge to help the Underground free some of the mutants who have been captured.

However, as tensions grow and the fighting becomes more intense, the Strucker family’s bonds are tested. Lauren and Andy must come to grips with their new, dangerous powers and their family’s history. Reed struggles to learn more about his past and his father, revealing new secrets- and possibly mutant abilities of his own. And with the creation of the Inner Circle, the Struckers are faced with a difficult decision that could tear them apart.


Marcos Diaz is a mutant who goes by the name Eclipse. He is played by actor Sean Teale.
Eclipse has the ability to absorb and manipulate photons, controlling light, heat, and energy. He can also project powerful beams of energy from his hands. Eclipse is an original mutant created for The Gifted, but does share some traits with the X-Men character Sunspot.

As a child, Marcos was kicked out by his family for being a mutant. He had to live on the streets, eventually joining a Colombian drug cartel. Marcos is haunted by these events in his past and the things he had to do to survive. He only left the cartel after meeting and falling in love with fellow mutant Polaris. By her side, he became one of the leaders of the Mutant Underground. His goal is to protect the other mutants, especially Polaris and their unborn child. When Polaris is arrested Marcos will do anything to get her out of jail- including going back to working for his old cartel boss again.

The Mutant Underground faces many challenges. There are those, including Polaris, who think the organization should take a more radical approach in dealing with those who oppose them. Marcos is the one who must try to hold the group together, even if it means going against the woman he loves.


Lorna Dane is a mutant who goes by the name Polaris. She is played by Emma Dumont. Polaris is proud of her mutant abilities and doesn’t believe in hiding them. Polaris can manipulate various forms of magnetism, giving her the power to move metallic objects and sense the presence of metal even allowing her to control electric currents. She can also use metal to make herself levitate- which is why she chooses to wear steel toe boots. In the comics, Polaris is the daughter of the powerful mutant Magneto. On The Gifted, Magneto has only been alluded to, but Polaris knows her father was once the King of the Inner Circle.

Alongside Thunderbird, Polaris helped found the Mutant Underground. Their goal is to protect others like them. While forming the Underground Polaris met Marcos Diaz aka Eclipse and the two fell in love. Polaris is currently pregnant with Marcos’ baby. The unborn mutant child strengthens Lorna’s already impressive abilities. Along with her pregnancy, Polaris must deal with increasing pressure as a leader and a woman with bipolar disorder.

Polaris has a tough choice to make when it comes to leaving the Mutant Underground. While she co-founded the group, she has come to disagree with its methods. She wants to take more action, especially with the life of her child on the line. She no longer believes that humans and mutants can co-exist. This places Polaris in a difficult position as she must decide between the man she loves and what she believes is right.


John Proudstar is the mutant Thunderbird. He is played by Blair Redford. Thunderbird is the leader of the Mutant Underground, chosen for this job by the X-Men before they disappeared. Thunderbird has superhuman strength, speed, reflexes, and durability. He also has superhuman tracking skills helped by his enhanced senses. With his military training and Apache background, he is a natural leader and a skilled combatant.

Thunderbird takes the responsibility of Mutant Underground very seriously. While Eclipse and Polaris can be impulsive, he is calm and strategic. Even when it is revealed that his former best friend, Pulse, has been turned into an agent for the Sentinel Services he puts the safety of the Underground and the mutants ahead of his own feelings of anger and sadness.

Thunderbird develops a relationship with fellow mutant Blink after helping to rescue her from the police. He helps her learn to control her powers and she comforts him over the death of their other mutant friends. With Polaris and some of the other mutants leaving the Mutant Underground to join the Inner Circle, Thunderbird is left questioning his leadership skills and with an even stronger desire to keep his friends safe.


Clarice Fong is a mutant who goes by the name of Blink. She is played by actress Jamie Chung. Blink has the ability to create portals which allow herself and others to teleport from one location to another. Like most of the other mutants, Blink is still learning to master this power, especially the ability to hold the portals open for a long period of time.

Before joining the Mutant Underground Blink had a very rough life. Unlike some of the other mutants, Blink cannot pass as human in society because of her appearance. Because of this, she grew up in a special foster care for mutants, forced to hide her abilities for her own protection. Eventually, Blink grew tired of hiding and went to live on her own. Blink joined a gang of mutant runaways, not knowing they were affiliated with the Brotherhood, a mutant terrorist organization. Once she discovered their criminal activities, she left that group as well. Eventually, Blink was caught by the police and placed in a mutant detention center. However, she eventually escaped, putting her face to face with the Mutant Underground.

At first, Blink is hesitant to join the Mutant Underground- which makes sense based on her previous experiences. She believes that their fight is not one she shares. However, over time she comes to trust the other mutants. She begins to act as a mentor to Lauren who is also discovering her mutant powers. She even develops a relationship with Thunderbird. The two bond when he teaches her how to hone her abilities.

With big changes shaking up the Mutant Underground, it looks like it may be time for Blink to stop running and take her place as a leader. She has finally found a place where she belongs and now she must fight to protect it.

6 Missing ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters Who Need to Return

Through seven seasons, we’ve witnessed the deaths of many beloved characters as well as those we couldn’t wait to see get theirs. But not every exit is a death, and many characters who have gone away still live, tucked in the darkest corners of Westeros or stretched to the farthest reaches of the Known World. With six episodes left, they could still come back one last time. After all, Gendry returned, so there’s hope for these favorites.

Hot Pie

“So the Night King has this dragon and… you know, just give me another wolf biscuit.”

Hot Pie is the rare Game of Thrones character to actually achieve his happy ending. He dodged both a violent death and a lifetime in the Night’s Watch by a hair. He had the good sense to not push his luck, instead choosing the less exciting but also less getting-murdered life of the rural baker. The nice thing to do would be to let him live out his happy life in peace.

By all accounts, the last season promises to be truly heartrending. Heroes may die, alliances may crumble, and whatever the outcome, we only have six more episodes to spend in this incarnation of Westeros. What can ease the pain better than baked goods and a friendly face? We need Hot Pie — if only to remind us that happy endings are possible, even in the Seven Kingdoms.

Salladhor Saan

Seriously, the spinoff could just be these two talking for six seasons.

Westeros in a rich and fascinating place, but it’s just one small part of a much larger world. Beyond the Narrow Sea live a host of colorful characters unlike anyone normally found in Westeros. One of the best of these is Salladhor Saan, a smooth-talking pirate and sellsail so filled with untapped potential he could star in his own spinoff.

Salladhor hires out his fleet to Stannis at the urging of Davos, but he bails when the battle turns. Still, Davos often convinces Salladhor to do the right thing — for the right price, of course. With the Greyjoy siblings out of commission, Daenerys could use a capable naval commander with a strong fleet. Plus, the dashing pirate’s return would promise more screen time for his old friend Davos, and when is that a bad thing?

Ilyn Payne

The Execution of Ned Stark.

Who doesn’t want to see Arya complete her kill list? Young Arya looked on helplessly as Ilyn Payne took her father’s head at the orders of King Joffrey, earning the King’s Justice one of the first spots on Arya’s list. Arya has grown so much since then as a person and as a killer. Should they meet, would she pay back a life for a life or has she forgiven him, knowing he had no choice but to obey the King?

Ilyn Payne gradually disappeared after actor Wilko Johnson contracted terminal cancer, forcing him to leave the show. Thanks to a life-saving operation, however, Johnson made a full recovery and has since expressed interest in once again portraying the mute knight. His return to Westeros would be a feel-good moment in a show steeped in death.

The Direwolves

“Who’s a good boy?”

Life in Westeros is no easier for its fauna than it is for its people, and the Direwolves are no exception. Against all odds, Ghost and Nymeria have managed to survive. Arya sent Nymeria away to save her life, but the former Stark companion didn’t seem to keen on a reunion at their last meeting. Meanwhile, Ghost has lived up to his namesake. He was last seen welcoming his master, Jon Snow, back from the dead.

The direwolves’ roles have always been constrained due to the cost of rendering them on screen. With a larger budget for season eight, hopefully the CGI canines will play a more prominent role. Jon, Daenerys, and their allies need all the help they can get against the Night King. Besides, it wouldn’t be a true Stark reunion without the surviving direwolves.

Meera Reed

“Boy, is everyone going to thank me when this is over.”

Pop culture is full of unsung heroes, and Meera Reed may well top that list. Sent by her father — along with her brother, Jojen — to protect the younger Stark brothers, she winds up joining Bran’s journey to find the Three-Eyed Raven. One by one Bran’s team falls, including Jojen, until it’s up to Meera alone to both protect Bran and pull his sled across miles of frozen wastes.

After literally saving his life a number of times, she barely gets a thank you from the newly-Raven-ed Bran. Even a glorious death would have beaten the shrugging-off she received. Whatever the new Three-Eyed Raven contributes to the fight against the White Walkers, Westeros will have Meera to thank for it. Her story deserves a better end.

Syrio Forel

“Not Today!”

We never saw a body, so Syrio Forel could still be alive. Last seen delaying Meryn Trant and the Lannister guards long enough for Arya to escape, Syrio faced down a fully armed and armored Trant with only a broken practice sword. Given the latter’s reputation for cowardice and incompetence, the First Sword of Braavos may well have survived the duel.

Syrio’s supposed death was one of the first tragedies that led Arya on her path toward becoming a faceless assassin and an expert at the sword. Should Arya’s sword master reappear in Westeros, would he be proud of his former pupil’s skill or horrified at what she’s become? And if he did manage to hold off Meryn Trant and the Lannister guards with a broken wooden sword, imagine how he could help Jon and Daenerys’ forces with a real one.

Margot Robbie Teases “Unexplored” DC Characters in Harley Quinn Movie

Margot Robbie has opened up about the Harley Quinn spin-off movie she’s producing in which she’ll also star. The film, called Birds of Prey, will be directed by indie filmmaker Cathy Yan and is set to be an R-rated “girl gang” movie.

FANDOM chatted with Robbie ahead of the release of her latest film, Terminal, and asked her who she’d like in Harley’s girl gang.

While she stopped short of naming specific characters, she said: “I will say that there are a lot of unexplored DC female characters who are unique and complicated and dark and funny and exciting — and not just for their superpowers. Actually, the ones that excite me most don’t have superpowers at all but they have, you know, pretty great backstories and all could kind of live in the world with Harley and create this cool dynamic. Because I don’t think girl groups… I mean all my girlfriends, we’re a huge girl gang and we’re not all the same person, everyone’s very different. I guess I was really trying to put that on screen — the way we exist in everyday life as a big girl gang. Why can’t we watch that in films more?”

Robbie followed up by suggesting she’d love it if her friends could actually be in the movie – if only they were actors.

“The women who inspire me most, honestly, are my friends and they’re not actors,” she said. “I mean, I have friends who are actors but most of my closest friends aren’t really in the industry.”

Who Could She Be Talking About?

That Harley Quinn spin-off movie is coming but which Birds of Prey will join her?

So, no clues on casting but there’s plenty in Robbie’s words to set us off guessing which DC characters might be joining Harley Quinn as one of the ‘Birds of Prey’. At the very least, it allows us to discount (probably) the likes of the frequently explored Catwoman and Poison Ivy – the two other ‘Gotham City Sirens’ who, next to Quinn, make up the trio of female villains slated to feature in their own standalone movie, which may or may not still be happening. Unpowered comic book ‘Birds of Prey’ characters include Batgirl and Batwoman as well as Huntress and martial arts maestro Jade Canary.

In May, Robbie revealed that she wasn’t involved with any other Harley Quinn projects. She told Moviefone: “I want to make a girl gang, R-rated film that Harley is a part of. And we started working on it from there. Meanwhile, over the course of the next few years, the studio was exploring other Harley Quinn spin-offs. But I was not a part of those versions, I was always focused on this one with Christina… I know that they were exploring ‘Gotham City Sirens’ with David Ayer, and I know they were exploring a Joker and Harley Quinn movie, and they were exploring doing I don’t know what else. I wasn’t a part of those. I was focusing on this. I kept presenting it to the studio until they felt it was at a point where they were ready to do it. And now we’re all in.”

Terminal is released to UK Cinemas on  July 6 and will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital from August 6. The film is out now in the US.

I Made the Daily Beast Staff Tell Me Which ‘Sex and the City’ Characters They Are

On June 6, 1998, Sex and the City premiered on HBO.

Twenty years later, I learned that someone I work with self-identifies as Berger, the man who infamously dumped Carrie Bradshaw via post-coital Post-it note. I also learned that you shouldn’t ask your entire office which Sex and the City character they are unless you want to be completely mystified by the people you work with every day and start to question if you can ever really know anyone at all.

I couldn’t help but wonder, in this year of our future governor Cynthia Nixon 2018, why people weren’t more ashamed to out themselves as a Carrie. And to my co-workers who did not respond to me, or simply responded with the name of the character a BuzzFeed quiz assigned them, in the immortal words of Kim Cattrall: “We’ve never been friends. We’ve been colleagues.”

5 Anime Side Characters Who Deserve to Take the Lead

Viewers can usually spot the main character in an anime. Often, they visually stand out from the other characters or their backstory or introduction gives it away. Unsurprisingly, these characters’ stories take center stage. After all, they’re the stars.

But it’s the supporting cast members who help them achieve their goals by providing guidance, friendship, or comic relief. When done well, these characters’ personalities and backstories can actually steal the spotlight from the lead, leaving fans begging for more. So, here are a five anime side characters who deserve to take the lead.

Kakashi Hatake — Naruto

anime side characters who deserve to take the lead Kakashi Hatake from Naruto

Despite the series literally being named after the main character, Naruto Uzumaki, the show still has many secondary characters that could take the lead, such as Kakashi Hatake, a shinobi from the Konohagakure’s Hatake clan. Hatake has an interesting backstory full of pain, anguish, and growth that’s worth further exploration. He loses his mother as a child, and subsequently his father, Sakumo Hatake, a ninja renowned for saving the Hidden Leaf Village on more than one occasion.

His father’s death, in particular, adversely affects the young ninja, as he watched his father fall from grace within the village after choosing to save his comrades over completing a mission. The disgraced ninja fell into a depression, which led to his untimely death and Kakashi’s obsession with completing missions — even at the cost of his comrades. Yet, despite his troubled past, Kakashi doesn’t become evil like so many other Naruto characters. In time, he even comes to understand his father’s decision when faced with a similar choice.

Consequently, Hatake’s becomes more confident and self-reliant, which helps him to acquire the skills necessary to become a mentor to the village’s young ninjas. Despite his reputation and solid ninja skills, Hatake has shown no signs of arrogance. His modesty, tragic backstory, and ninja abilities make him the perfect choice to take the lead. It also doesn’t hurt that Naruto creator, Masashi Kishimoto, agrees. Kishimoto said in an interview that if he were to create a Naruto series with a different lead, Hatake would be his first pick.

Levi Ackerman — Attack on Titan

anime side characters who deserve to take the lead Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan

Levi Ackerman (or Captain Levi to his comrades in arms) is the squad captain of the Special Operations Squad within the Scout Regiment. As such, many refer to him as humanity’s strongest soldier. But the decorated soldier’s past is filled with pain and loss. Not only did he lose his mother and friends, he also lost his entire squad. Despite this, he has never drifted away from his duties or lost his composure. His emotions stay hidden until he completes his mission. It’s a commendable quality that few characters in Attack on Titan possess, including the series’ main character, Eren Jaeger.

His skills on the battlefield, eccentric behavior (don’t stop by when he’s on a cleaning rampage), and cold charm draws viewers in. (Besides that, the squad captain has distinguishing features, such as the red cravat, that distinguishes him from the rest of the cast.) Despite his unapproachable and cold demeanor, Levi’s dexterity and suave personality make him more likable and deserving of the spotlight than Eren Jaeger, who spends most of his time on screen yelling and putting his comrades in unnecessary danger.

Roy Mustang — Fullmetal Alchemist

anime side characters who deserve to take the lead Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist

Roy Mustang, also known as the Flame Alchemist, is one of the leads of the Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA)series. Even so, he can carry the show all by himself. Earning many accolades during his time in the Ishval Civil War and as a state alchemist, Mustang is a remarkable and capable commander capable of becoming the next Führer of Amestris and the main protagonist.

Although on the surface Mustang seems selfish and narcissistic, his heart is in the right place. It’s thanks to his self-absorbed façade that he can push his subordinates further than they expected. But besides his power and intelligence, he has a sensitive side that comes to light when he learns of his dear friend’s, Maes Hughes, death. A loss that affects him greatly and speeds up his plans of becoming Führer.

Not to mention, Roy Mustang is an attractive, sophisticated, powerful man in the prime of his life. With his dark, piercing eyes and baby face, the Flame Alchemist deserves to take the lead of the FMA franchise. His time during the war as a “hero of a massacre” and idealistic plans for Amestris make for a compelling story.

Shoto Todoroki — My Hero Academia

anime side characters who deserve to take the lead Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia

Even with a cast full of bizarre superheroes, Shoto Todoroki is still one of the most unique characters on My Hero Academia. Despite not having many scenes in the first couple of episodes, his rivalry with Izuku Midoriya and unfriendly personality make him one of the most popular characters in the series, according to Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump. He even beat out the main leads, Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo.

Todoroki is the son of the second strongest hero, Endeavor. His father’s obsession with All Might has led Endeavor to create offspring to surpass the world’s number one hero. His fixation with All Might took priority over his family, causing Todoroki to develop an aloof personality. Even so, Todoroki is still able to grow from it. He develops his own fighting style and ethics on heroism that put his father to shame.

Todoroki’s ability to overcome his issues makes him an incredibly sympathetic and likable character. Midoriya even mentions that Todoroki has all of the makings of a protagonist — unlike himself. Maybe there’s a spinoff series in the young hero’s future.

Kiyomasa Senji — Deadman Wonderland


Also known as Crow, Kiyomasa Senji was a police officer before landing in Deadman Wonderland. It’s thanks to Senji that the main character Ganta Igarashi lasted as long as he did in the amusement park prison. With Senji’s training and support, Ganta was able to use his Branch of Sin, making it possible for him to win and survive until the end.

Besides that, the battle-hardened veteran’s thirst for violence and cool catchphrase, “Dead Center” make him a suitable candidate to take the series’ lead role. Back during his police officer days, Senji used his ability to catch criminals, often crossing the line to capture his target. This made him a target to gangs, and, in the end, Senji lost colleagues, friends, and even his mentor, Domon. But Senji grows from these horrible experiences, becoming stronger and more determined.

But Senji isn’t just a serious badass character. When faced with danger, he shows how charismatic he is by making jokes. He also takes the time to help those weaker than himself, which is commendable. These laudable qualities, which Ganta lacks, make him the ideal choice for a lead role. (Plus, his toned body, messy hair, and eye-patch just scream main character.) Making Senji the lead would likely bring the  Deadman Wonderland anime back to life.

Wes Anderson’s four most fashionable characters and how to channel their vibe

Don’t @ us, we had to cut the list down okay

wes anderson style
The blunt bob. The side clip. The kohl eyes. Everything about Margot was iconic.

Story time: I once bumped into a tall man dressed in a brown corduroy suit with shoulder-length hair. As we crossed paths in Soho, we stared at each other (me in confusion, him with a weirded out expression) and his assistant grinned at me as he rushed past. A few moments later, I realised the dapper gentleman was in fact The Grand Budapest Hotel’s director Wes Anderson and his stylish films suddenly made so much sense.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to watch one of his movies or are an avid follower of the Accidentally Wes Anderson Instagram, there’s no denying that his characters are a cut ahead of the fashion pack. To celebrate the release of his newest title The Isle of Dogs, here’s a roundup of the best Wes Anderson style moments from The Royal Tenenbaums to Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Moonrise Kingdom: Suzy

This Very Troubled Child from Moonrise Kingdom may have stolen a boy scout’s heart with her tough demeanour, but it was her sense of style that won us over. Despite channeling all the angst of an emo teenager, her fashion choices were sweet and chic (which should probably be a tagline for every Wes Anderson movie ever). Even though the film came out in 2012, she sports all of our favourite spring 2018 trends with her pink gingham dress, pastel caped coat, beret and massive basket bag.

He may be a fox, but this mischievous thief gives the most fashionable humans a good run for their money. Stop me if this sounds familiar, he runs around town in a double breasted brown corduroy suit…yeah, apparently the costume designer based Mr Fox’s iconic look off Wes Anderson’s own wardrobe.

From his yellow and burgundy pinstriped pyjama set to a slick tie in shades of brown, he’s a character that oozes all the charm of his voice actor George Clooney. (Side note: what amazing casting.)

Margot Tenenbaum is hands down the most elegant of Wes Anderson’s leading women, as well as one of the auteur’s most enigmatic. She’s even a popular Halloween costume, inspiring the likes of Michelle Williams to dress up as her. Margot’s massive blond fur steals the show in every scene she’s in and she styles it in the quirkiest of ways, whether she’s sporting a powder blue rugby tee or channelling the underwear as outerwear trend with a taupe slip.

The fact that she can rock a bright red barrette without looking like a twelve year old is also an impossible feat, but somehow Gwyneth Paltrow manages it.

Ralph Fiennes’ eccentric hotel concierge M. Gustave cut a dashing figure as he trotted around the halls of the Grand Budapest Hotel, decked out in his sharp bowtie and snazzy suit. Given that ultraviolet has been hailed Pantone’s colour of the year, he and his lobby boy sidekick Zero are bang on the money with their deep purple suits.

The scarlet piping and gold embellishments on his blazer make a world of difference, balanced by his muted grey trousers (topped off with a very on trend side stripe). Tailoring’s the name of the game here though and it’s worth taking a leaf out of M. Gustave’s book, as a bold blazer always makes an impression.

We could go on and on, but half the fun is watching Wes’ archive of films and rediscovering the characters all over again. On that note: his new flick The Isle of Dogs is out on March 30th though there probably won’t be as many fashionable looks in that one – it’s about talking dogs.

7 Times TV Characters Were Mysteriously Recast

Beware the actors you fall in love with on your favorite shows, as one day you could turn on the TV to find them suddenly replaced.

TV series can run for years and sometimes actors, whether they quit or get fired, don’t make it all the way through to the end.

Viewers usually just have to accept the changes without ever getting an explanation for the recast. But don’t worry TV fans, we’re here to uncover the mysteries behind some of TV’s biggest casting changes.

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Ed Skrein and Michael Huisman as Daario

It’s hard enough to keep track of all the characters on Game of Thrones without having the extra challenge of actors being replaced. But that hasn’t stopped the HBO hit from going through several recasts since it first debuted in 2011. While both Tommen Baratheon and The Mountain were recast at certain points, it was before their characters had major storylines so the switch-ups were less noticeable.

The recasting of Khalessi‘s lover, Daario Naharis, on the other hand, was less easy to brush under the rug. Actor Ed Skrein was replaced by Michael Huisman between Seasons 3 and 4 after Skrein landed a leading role in 2015’s The Transporter Refueled. And to complicate things even further, both men look completely different. Daario started out clean shaven with long flowing blonde locks and returned the next season with short dark hair and a beard. But in a world where dragons exist and men come back from the dead, perhaps a makeover isn’t the strangest thing to happen in Westeros.


Riverdale Ross Butler and Charles Melton as Reggie

When Riverdale returned to the CW after its successful first season, there was a new face in the role of Reggie. Archie’s rival was originally played by Ross Butler but wasn’t seen often because of the actor’s busy schedule. Butler stars in 13 Reasons Why, another breakout hit in 2017, so producers had to search for a new Reggie when the Netflix series was picked up for Season 2.

Charles Melton took over the role in the next season, bringing more bad-boy sex appeal to the character. Butler endorsed his replacement in a tweet after leaving the show and thanked producers for choosing another Asian-American to take on the role.


Roseanne Alicia Goranson and Sarah Chalke as Becky

When Alicia Goranson was replaced by Sarah Chalke as Becky in the ’90s sitcom Roseanne the show dealt with it by doing what it does best — making jokes. After five years playing the family’s oldest daughter, Goranson went off to attend college and Chalke took over the role. But to make things even more confusing, Chalke then left in ’95 and Goranson returned until May of 1996, reportedly able to pick up the role whenever her schedule allowed. But then Chalke returned to play Becky in the final season.

Confused yet? So are we. But the Connors made light of the situation with laughter, asking Becky things like “Where the hell have you been?” when she’d return in a different form. Both Goranson and Chalke will appear in the upcoming Roseanne reboot, though the latter will play a character other than Becky.


Gotham Clare Foley, Maggie Geha and Peyton List as Ivy Pepper

The character of young Poison Ivy in Fox’s Gotham has now been recast not once but two different times since the show first debuted in 2014. The role of Ivy Pepper was originated by 14-year-old Clare Foley, but they recast the role with 28-year-old Maggie Geha in Season 3 in order to age the character and get her closer to the sexy supervillain she’s destined to become.

But when Gotham returned for the second half of its fourth season in 2018, Geha had been swapped with actress Peyton List. Ivy 3.0 will be the evilest incarnation yet, described in a press release as “a live wire of crazy energy” who will “set her sights on Gotham, intent on making the city her own green paradise.”

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Janet Hubert and Daphne Maxwell Reid as Aunt Viv

The character of Aunt Viv was played by Janet Hubert for the first three seasons of the ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air before being taken over by Daphne Maxwell Reid in Season 4. Showrunners claimed that Hubert was axed because she violated her contract by getting pregnant, but most people assume it was because of her feud with the show’s star, Will Smith.

The two actors were known for not getting along behind the scenes, with Hubert accused of being difficult on set. The actress spoke out against Smith as recently as 2016 when she released a video slamming the star and accusing him of not helping her and the rest of the cast get more money for being on the show.


Spartacus Andy Whitfield and Liam McIntyre as Spartacus

Andy Whitfield played the titular role in Starz’s historical drama Spartacus for the first season but was diagnosed with cancer before the start of Season 2. Production was put on hold to give Whitfield time to recover from treatment, but he sadly passed away in September 2011 before filming could resume.

Liam McIntyre was tapped to replace the lead actor for the rest of the series, which lasted two more seasons and got even more popular during that time.

Family Guy

Family Guy Meg

Season 1 of the animated series Family Guy had Lacey Chabert in the role of Meg, Peter and Lois’ long-suffering daughter. But the actress became too caught up with her role in Party of Five, not to mention actually going to school herself, so she was replaced by Mila Kunis starting in Season 2.

Creator Seth MacFarlane reportedly thought Kunis was ultimately a better fit anyway and she’s been playing the role ever since.

QUIZ: How Did These ‘The Walking Dead’ Characters Die?

It’s no surprise that there’s a fairly high kill count on The Walking Dead. New characters or original fan favorites (RIP Glenn), the series has proven that no one is safe. As we head into the second half of Season 8, it’s impossible to predict who will make it out alive.

With a constant threat at the remaining survivors’ doorstep and a revolving door of characters to care about who will only break your heart when they go and die on us, there’s a long list of dearly departed on the show. But how well do you remember the final swan song of these characters that met their end at the hands (or teeth) of walkers or other fellow survivors?

*Note: the questions in this quiz relate to the TV series only, not the comics. Also, “death” is considered once the living character passes, not when they reanimate and become undead.

‘The Walking Dead’: Where the Characters Stand Before the Midseason 8 Premiere

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 8 will see plenty of heartbreak and perhaps the end of the “all-out war” between Rick Grimes and Negan.

During the midseason finale, fans discovered that Negan’s Saviors were not so easily defeated by Rick’s Militia. Alexandria was burned down, with its survivors fleeing to the sewers. It was there were Rick reunited with Carl, only to learn that his son was bitten by a walker — a death sentence.

Here’s where the major characters stand before the midseason premiere.


the walking dead season 8 negan

Negan has had more lives than a cat. Seemingly pinned down with Gabriel by a walking herd, he survived, rallied the remaining Saviors, and attacked Alexandria. He waited for Rick to return to ambush him, and the two exchanged blows before Rick fled. He is unrelenting in his quest to display the heads of “the king” aka Ezekiel, “the widow” aka Maggie, and Rick.


the walking dead season 8 carl

Over the last eight seasons, Carl has gone from young man to brave leader. But despite becoming hardened after so many losses, including his mother Lori, Carl still learned compassion. He tried to sacrifice himself so that Negan would spare Alexandria. He helped the mysterious Siddiq to safety, getting bitten by a walker in the process. A bite is a death sentence. If Carl asks Michonne to help him end his own life, it will be the second time she’s had to assist a friend’s suicide — the first being Andrea.


the walking dead season 8 rick

Rick has vowed to kill Negan, and will surely be emboldened to do so after the death of his son and destruction of Alexandria. He will also want revenge against Jadis and the Scavengers, who promised to help him but fled.


Michonne, who thinks of Carl as her own son, will also be emboldened after his death. She has served as Rick’s partner and conscience, and the two may embark on a quest of revenge together.


the walking dead season 8 maggie

Maggie’s top responsibility is to protect her people. “The Widow” vows that the Hilltop will be the last stand of the all-out war, and previews show the remaining Kingdom and Alexandria survivors taking refuge there. Perhaps her pregnancy will finally begin to show as well.


the walking dead season 8 ezekiel

Like Maggie, Ezekiel’s responsibility is to protect his people. With Shiva dead and the Kingdom defenseless and overrun, Ezekiel surrenders himself to the Saviors.


the walking dead season 8 dwight

Dwight finally sided with Rick’s Militia, leading his fellow Saviors into an ambush setup up by Daryl, Tara, Rosita, and Michonne. The continue to question his loyalty but allow him to join them in the sewers. Unfortunately, his betrayal was witnessed by Lauren, who will undoubtedly tell Negan what happened. Negan will be very unhappy to learn of his top lieutenant’s betrayal and will want to take care of him personally.


the walking dead season 8 eugene

Eugene made his choice (perhaps out of self-preservation), creating the ingenious iPod plane that led the walkers away from The Sanctuary. Although he helped Father Gabriel and Dr. Carson escape the Savior stronghold, it’s pretty clear where his loyalties lie. Short of killing Negan himself (which he’s had several opportunities to do), it’s unlikely Rick will ever welcome him back.


Morgan is a wildcard. He gave up his pacifistic ways and became a ruthless killer, gunning down many Saviors. He was last seen hiding at the Kingdom. His character will be joining the sister show, Fear the Walking Dead, after this season. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has said that Season 8B leads directly to Season 4 of Fear, so it’ll be interesting to see how that will play out.

The Walking Dead Season 8 returns on February 25 in the U.S., and the U.K. the following night.

Star Wars: 7 Black Characters You Should Know

 Yesterday, Star Wars: The Last Jedi set a record for the second-largest Thursday night preview gross in North America, trailing only Star Wars: The Force Awakens, earning $ 45 million, reports Variety.

With Disney backing the film—and becoming even more powerful with its acquisition of 21st Century Fox for about $ 60 billion in stock and debt) and another sequel due in 2019—it’s clear Star Wars is a beloved film franchise.

And while there was controversy over the casting of John Boyega, a black British actor as a Stormtrooper in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, there have been iconic black actors and characters throughout the Star Wars universe. Here are seven of the best known:

The Top 10 Fictional Characters of 2017

10. Randall Pearson

Randall Pearson is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
Ron Batzdorff—NBC/NBCU Photo Bank/Getty Images

Pearson’s experience being adopted by a family outside his own race—and how that continues to shape him as an adult—made for the most meaningful and compelling component of broadcast TV’s breakout hit This Is Us. Emmy voters agreed, dubbing Sterling K. Brown’s performance the best by an actor in a drama series.

9. Hannah Baker

Hannah Baker is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
Beth Dubber—Netflix

As played by Katherine Langford, Baker is the kind of protagonist any kid could relate to: warm yet acerbic, beautiful but insecure, popular in some ways, outcast in others. But 13 Reasons Why isn’t just a teen soap; it’s the story of Baker’s suicide, narrated by Baker herself. To critics, that was cause for alarm, prompting schools to warn parents, and parents to accuse Netflix of glamorizing suicide. But in spite—or because—of the Baker-centric controversy, 13 Reasons Why was a huge hit among teens and the year’s most tweeted-about show.

8. Sean Spicer

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
Will Heath—NBC/NBCU Photo Bank/Getty Images

Melissa McCarthy’s relentlessly imaginative and athletic take on the former White House Press Secretary was arguably this year’s sharpest political satire: Her Spicer was all indignation, consumed by an outright hatred of journalists that expressed itself with sputtering fierceness. That caricature kept Spicer in the news long after he might have preferred, and reportedly led President Trump to sour on his most visible mouthpiece, leading to Spicer’s departure.

7. Julia the Muppet

Tiffany Rose—HollyRod Foundation/Getty Images

At a time when there are a growing number of characters with autism on TV (see: The Good Doctor, The A Word, Atypical), Julia is especially well-positioned to educate kids. When she first meets the Sesame Street gang, the Muppet is more focused on her painting than Elmo is, and she doesn’t want to give Big Bird a high-five. But they quickly learn how to include her in playtime—a new friend who’s different but special all the same.

6. Kono Kalakaua and Chin Ho Kelly

Kono Kalakaua and Chin Ho Kelly are one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
CBS/Getty Images

For seven seasons, this police officer (played by Grace Park) and lieutenant (played by Daniel Dae Kim) were two of the most visible Asian-American characters on TV. So when news broke they were going to be written off Hawaii Five-O—Park and Kim quit the CBS drama after reportedly being offered less pay than their white counterparts—it kickstarted a national debate and further exposed the gap between Hollywood’s stated commitment to diversity and its actual hiring practices. (For its part, CBS claimed it offered Park and Kim “large and significant salary increases.”)

5. Dina

Tiffany Haddish as Dina is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
Universal Studios

Tiffany Haddish’s go-for-broke performance as the most unapologetically raunchy member of a quartet of friends didn’t just help Girls Trip more than $ 100 million. It also established Haddish as one of the Hollywood’s biggest rising stars, a status she cemented with a recent guest stint on SNL.

4. Viserion

Viserion is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.

Dragons have long been a part of the Game of Thrones mythology, but never before has one managed to outshine the most beloved ensemble cast on TV: When Viserion was killed and resurrected by the Night King as a force for evil, it upended the show’s gameboard in a way that no human character ever has, portending a thrilling final season.

3. Offred

George Kraychyk—Hulu

In 1985, when Margaret Atwood’s first published The Handmaid’s Tale, her protagonist’s reality—watching her free society turn into a repressive and sexist theocracy—may have seemed farfetched. But in Trump’s America, the character, brought to life on Hulu by Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, has become a symbol of the real-life resistance. Earlier this year, dozens of women donned her iconic Handmaid costume (red robe, white hood) and marched on Capitol Hill to protest a GOP-backed healthcare bill that would have cut funding to Planned Parenthood, among other things.

2. Pennywise

Warner Bros. Entertainment

The shape-shifting clown who torments a group of Maine children made his on-screen debut more than 25 years ago in a TV miniseries. But Bill Skarsgard added even more menace to Stephen King’s creation, revealing both new layers of fangs and a more-monstrous-than-ever appetite. That combination helped make It the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, with excitement building for the planned 2019 sequel. Which is bad news for clowns, who reported losing work thanks to the revived and scarier Pennywise.

1. Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is one of the top 10 fictional characters of 2017.
Warner Bros. Entertainment

Gal Gadot’s superhero—at once a savage warrior and an idealistic naif—packed riveting contradictions and plenty of charisma into her first full-length screen outing (and Justice League, too). She also powered Wonder Woman to more than $ 800 million globally, proving just how many people had been waiting for a superhero like her. That was proven, too, by the thousands of young girls who swung their own lassos of truth this past Halloween, finally able to celebrate a screen idol of their own.

10 Most Badass Female Anime Characters

Anime occasionally gives off the impression that it’s less than kind in the way it represents its female characters. With busty babes, giggling gaggles of schoolgirls, and an abundance of ever-so-short skirts and skimpy outfits, many outsiders may unfairly judge the genre. However, those are just a small sub-section of anime — there are so many more shows and movies that feature powerful, smart, and badass ladies. So, here are 10 female anime characters who kick ass and take names.

Touka Kirishima — Tokyo Ghoul

Name: Touka Kirishima

Quote: “Everything is ‘terrible’? Don’t make me laugh. So what about me? For me, it’s been terrible since I was born.”

Powers: A powerful wing that delivers high-speed attacks, pseudo-electrokinesis, speed, durability.

Most badass moment: In the first season of Tokyo Ghoul, Touka shows the power of her ukaku wing kagune when she protects the still-naive Kaneki from the persistent Shuu Tsukiyama. It’s the first time Kaneki sees Touka’s kagune in action and she shows just how formidable a fighter she really is to face off against the much stronger Tsukiyama.

Revy — Black Lagoon

Revy -- Black Lagoon

Name: Revy aka Rebecca Lee, and commonly referred to as “Two Hands”

Quote: “I can show you what color your brain is.”

Powers: Skilled with firearms and other weapons, able to dodge bullets, ambidextrous.

Most badass moment: The foul-mouthed, hard-drinking ambidextrous gun-slinger, Revy, doesn’t take s**t from anyone. From Black Lagoon‘s first episode when she “Two-Hand”-edly takes on a gang of mobsters shooting up a bar or when she mows down boatloads of enemies or when just shoots a mansplaining neo-Nazi at point-blank because he’s boring her, every scene Revy is in is her most badass moment.

Saber — Fate/Zero

Name: Saber aka Artoria Pendragon

Quote: “The weight of my sword is the weight of my pride.”

Powers: Skilled swordswoman, magical energy that can summon Excalibur, potent healing ability.

Most badass moment: In Fate/Zero, Saber summons the light of all past, present, and future warriors to form the extremely powerful Excalibur sword and uses it against the vicious and sadistic, Caster. The sword’s immense power burst moves earth and sea, releasing Caster from this earthly plane.

Akame — Akame ga Kill!


Name: Akame aka Akame of the Demon Sword Murasame

Quote: “It’s because I loved her the most that I wanted to kill her as swiftly as possible.”

Powers: Strength, skilled master swordswoman, speed, agility, reflexes, immune to most poisons.

Most badass moment: In Episode 4 of Akame ga Kill!, Akame faces off against notorious serial killer Zanku the Beheader. The former executioner from one of the Empire’s prisons uses an illusion to make Akame think that her younger sister, Kurome, is standing before her. Zanku thinks this will deter the assassin and make her an easy target, but Akame doesn’t falter for even a moment. She goes in with full force, first destroying his weapon, and then slitting the Beheader’s throat.

Motoko Kusanagi — Ghost in the Shell

Name: Major Motoko Kusanagi

Quote: “Maybe someday your ‘maker’ will come, haul you away, take you apart, and announce the recall of a defective product. What if all that’s left of the ‘real you’ is just a couple of lonely brain cells, huh?”

Powers: Full cybernetic body, weapons expert.

Most badass moment: Having Motoko on this list begs the same fundamental question that the Ghost in the Shell anime asks: is Motoko human or is she machine? If we agree that there’s some part of her that’s human, then yes, she deserves to be here. And she is one kick-ass lady.

Among her many other badass exploits, Major uses her wits and unfaltering poker face against ace sniper Saito in a one-on-one gunfight. While Saito overthinks the problem, Motoko is already several steps ahead, proving her badassery like a powerful chess master.

Usagi Tsukino — Sailor Moon

sailor moon crystal

Name: Usagi Tsukino aka Princess Serenity aka Sailor Moon

Quote: “If the pride of a senshi means hurting each other, I don’t want it. Nothing will come out of fighting. Fighting isn’t the only way to solve things.”

Powers: Moon Spiral Attack, Supersonic Waves, Moon Tiara Boomerang, healing powers (including bringing people back to life), teleportation, can foresee future events and sense evil’s approach.

Most badass moment: Sailor Moon may not have the swords and guns of other women on this list, but her influence on anime and the way women were represented is the reason any of the others are here at all.

When the evil Queen Metaria wrecks her home planet, Sailor Moon must find the strength to defeat her alone. Once she learns to believe in herself, she draws upon the power of her loved ones — and the moon — to unlock the Legendary Silver Crystal‘s full power. Not only does she blast away the evil queen, she also heals the entire planet.

Mikasa Ackerman — Attack on Titan

Name: Mikasa Ackerman

Quote: “My specialty is slicing off meat. If necessary, I can display that talent at any time. So if there’s anyone here who’d like to experience it firsthand, please, step right up.”

Powers: Military genius, prodigious skill in vertical maneuvering equipment, talented fighter, strength.

Most badass moment: One of Mikasa’s earlier moments showing just how badass she is comes in Episode 6 of Attack on Titan‘s first season. Not only does she prove herself as a highly proficient fighter in killing an abnormal Titan running at a crowd at the base of the Wall Rose, she also threatens to execute a merchant selfishly blocking the tunnel for the people’s evacuation.

Kefla — Dragon Ball Super

Kefla Dragon Ball Super

Name: Kefla (a fusion of Kale and Caulifla)

Quote: “You still wanna fight? Bring it on! Have a taste of my power!”

Powers: Flight, energy blast attacks, Fist Cannonball, Gigantic Blast, Continuous Energy Bullets.

Most badass moment: As the Potara fusion of Kale and Caulifla, Kefla is one powerful woman. Combining Kale’s unlimited energy with Caulifla crazy strong abilities, Kefla can easily go toe-to-toe with Goku, meeting him punch-for-punch. It takes Goku reaching Ultra Instinct for him to defeat the combined Saiyans, which is super badass.

Tsunade — Naruto

Tsunade Naruto

Name: Tsunade

Quote: “People become stronger because they have things they cannot forget. That’s what you call growth.”

Powers: Super strength, chakra control, can summon a slug for long-distance communication and healing.

Most badass moment: A female anime character doesn’t always need to be a fighter to be badass. Yes, Tsunade is blunt and has a short temper, but as Hokage, she’s committed to protecting her village. So when Pain comes looking for Naruto in Konohagakure, Tsunade transfers all her chakra power to Katsuyu, a giant slug and Tsunade’s personal summon, to heal and protect the injured and save the village from total destruction.

Kyoka Jiro — My Hero Academia

Kyoka Jiro -- My Hero Academia

Name: Kyoka Jiro

Quote: “If you do this, we just might win. But there’s no time to hesitate, so do it now! You wanna be a hero, don’t you?! Then let’s pass this test.”

Powers: Swordsmanship, and an earphone jack that can produce destructive vibrations, powerful sound waves, sound canceling effect, and can be used as a long-range whip.

Most badass moment: Although Kyoka hasn’t been featured a lot in the My Hero Academia anime series yet (maybe in Season 3?) she has a badass presence in the manga. The no-nonsense bass guitar-playing punk rocker uses her ears/earphone jacks as a long-range whip and can make sound waves that produce ear-shattering vibrations or they can cancel out noise. That’s pretty damn badass.

‘Fire Emblem Warriors’ Could Use These Characters

Nintendo is once against dipping into the world of Dynasty Warriors for another spin-off borrowing one of its first-party IPs. In 2014, we got Hyrule Warriors, in which Link and a cast of series favorite Legend of Zelda characters fought hordes of enemies in an effort to save Hyrule. This time, we have Fire Emblem Warriors, a crossover with the tactical RPG series Fire Emblem.

Fire Emblem Warriors takes a similar approach to Hyrule Warriors in that it features characters from several previous games in the series, most notably Fire Emblem Awakening and the more recent Fire Emblem Fates. The plot follows a young prince and princess as they escape from their conquered homeland and dimension-hop across worlds recruiting Fire Emblem’s legendary heroes to fight alongside them.

While we already have nearly two dozen playable characters confirmed, there’s still a few others we’re hoping Nintendo will reveal before the game launches. Right now there seems to be an imbalance of representation in favor of Awakening and Fates, likely because these two titles reinvigorated interested in the once-dormant series with the former’s release in 2012. Here are some additions we think are no-brainers:

Roy (Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade)

You know it makes sense. Roy from The Binding Blade has been in the spotlight since 2001 when he joined the Super Smash Bros. series with Melee. More recently, Roy featured prominently in the Fire Emblem Heroes mobile game as a rare hero and as a star opponent in the game’s story mode. He was the protagonist of his own game, for crying out loud.

Ike (Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance)

Ike from Path of Radiance is also a Smash Bros. veteran, having started his fighting career in 2008’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Ike has also been an extra downloadable character in both Awakening and Fates and is another rare summon in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Given his popularity, it seems only natural that Nintendo includes him in the ensemble of Warriors — which, to be frank, includes some less-beloved characters like Frederick and Cordelia who might not be common first picks.

Caeda (Fire Emblem Archanea series)

Caeda featured in several games in the Archaena series and may have already been confirmed in Fire Emblem Warriors’ latest trailer; she is standing to the left in one of the shots, though Nintendo hasn’t officially announced her appearance yet.

Caeda is headstrong and a monster on the battlefield. This makes her a strong choice for a game where you have to beat down hundreds of enemies at once.

Tharja (Fire Emblem Awakening)

With her sassy attitude and love for darkness, Tharja has risen in the ranks of fan favorites from the series to date. Tharja’s appeal doesn’t just lie in her skimpy outfit, but in her blatant not-giving-a-damn about anything she doesn’t care about attitude and her commitment to being the nastiest witch around. Kudos, Tharja. Warriors needs more tome (magic) users, and she’d be a great fit.

Donnel (Fire Emblem Awakening)

Donny_confession fire emblem

Hear me out: Donnel may be the biggest of weenies when you first find him — he’s not even part of the main storyline, he’s an optional recruit — but get that little baby over level 15 and holy hell do you have a tank on your hands.

Donnel comes from humble beginnings, the player in Awakening picking him up from a podunk little village and that can’t even give him proper armor. Yes, he has a pot on his head. But putting in the time to drag his lameness around the battlefield takes him from underdog to asset. A powered-up version of him would be amazing in Warriors.

Celica (Fire Emblem Gaiden/Echoes: Shadows of Valentia)

Celica is one of the two protagonists of Fire Emblem Gaiden and its recent remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. She, like those mentioned above, is a strong warrior but more reserved. This makes her an interesting personality foil to the rest of the cast. She can also fight with a sword or use magic, both destructive and healing, and could play multiple support roles on the Warriors battlefield.

Here are the confirmed characters who will appear in Fire Emblem Warriors:

Which Original ‘Walking Dead’ Characters Are Still Alive?

Staying alive on The Walking Dead is tricky.

Aside from the flesh-eating walkers, there’s limited food and resources, and other humans fighting for the little that’s left. Even if you’re strong (like Abraham) or resourceful (Glenn), you may not survive.

Season 7 saw the deaths of series regulars Sasha, Abraham, and of course, the aforementioned Glenn. His death at the hands of Negan was particularly hard because he was one of the original cast members. He was also the moral center of the survivors, refusing to kill (until he was forced to during the raid on the Saviors) and risking his life to save others.

Of the original cast members (which we define as principal or supporting roles from Season 1), only five remain. So who’s still alive as the zombie drama heads into Season 8?

Rick Grimes

As the protagonist of the series, it’s hard to imagine the showrunners killing off Rick. But it’s happened on other shows before (ahem, Game of Thrones). Rick’s survived being shot (thrice!), stabbed, and beaten to a pulp countless times. Rick takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

In the comics, Rick loses a hand (ala Jaime Lannister) to The Governor. Negan nearly took Carl’s hand in the Season 7 premiere — will he take Rick’s limb if not his life?

Carl Grimes

Rick’s son Carl (Chandler Riggs) was mere inches away from having Negan bash his head in during the Season 7 finale. Thankfully, Shiva (a goddamned tiger!) and Ezekiel’s Hilltop fighters intervened. Carl is reckless and impetuous, which can sometimes land him in trouble (like that time he tried to take out Negan solo). The one thing Carl has going for him is that Negan really likes him, which could save him.

Daryl Dixon

If Daryl dies, we riot.

That’s been the mantra for Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) fans. A skilled archer and tracker with an aversion to sleeves, Daryl has survived the most harrowing of near-death situations. Viewers still haven’t gotten over the death of Glenn; if Daryl dies, it might be The Walking Dead’s jump the shark moment.

Carol Peletier

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) has gone from meek and battered housewife to strong and assertive leader. She’s also more than capable on her own, having left the group multiple times only to return in times of need. Carol may have looser morals — she’s known to kill without remorse to ensure her survival — which makes her a survivor. One thing’s for sure — if Carol goes down, she’ll go down fighting.

Morgan James

Morgan (Lennie James) appeared in the first episode of The Walking Dead and didn’t reappear until the third season, finally joining the survivors in Season 5. Now that he is willing to take a human life, Morgan has become a huge threat to the Saviors, and when you’re a threat, you’re a target.

Will all of the original cast make it?

Catch the season premiere of The Walking Dead on October 22 in the U.S. and October 23 in the U.K.

At first I wasn’t going to,” he told the audience, but revealed he changed his mind after seeing the episode in which Glenn is killed.

“I know, it was devastating. I love that show and Glenn was like one of my favorite characters. so I was like crushed,” Chappelle added. “So, in that spirit and with that in mind, I hope you enjoy this.”
