In a recent interview with Your Entertainment Corner, actor Dana Lee described his character, Doc, as the “Taiwanese grandfather [Harley Quinn] never had.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Daisy Ridley hyped Rey’s upcoming lightsaber battle with Kylo Ren on a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

We have a great fight. A great fight. And I was really happy that the Vanity Fair pictures did show a bit of it. It’s a great fight. Like I’ve become such a better fighter and they made the lightsabers lighter, so it actually looks like we’re swinging light and not like heavy, heavy [swords].

This fight, we did, it was November, we had water being thrown at us, and I got a great deal of respect because I did not, I was ‘I’m not gonna complain about the cold, I’m just not gonna do it (laughs)—so it was like a real thing of stamina. It feels really epic, and it felt epic even at the time. Imagine, we had the waves like this, and they’re gonna make the waves bigger, and one can only imagine what it’s gonna look like.

Doctor Who

Last season had a very different feel and energy than the previous ones in the rejuvenated modern Who, but I enjoyed it. I hope Ryan’s father doesn’t continue to join them on adventures, though. It already feels like they struggle sometimes to find something for everyone to do as it is.
