Many of us who grew up with the entire Harry Potter franchise remember waiting in those incredibly long queues for the latest book to be released, eagerly sprinted to the cinema for the flicks and desperately trying to dodge spoilers about character plots.

We also know that once it gets rebooted, we're officially OLD. Daniel Radcliffe will always be our Harry, Emma Watson our Hermione, and Rupert Grint our ginger nut Ron. 

The actor who played the title role has now confirmed his thoughts that the hugely popular franchise will be rebooted, and we're totally in denial. Please don't do this to us.

Radcliffe spoke to IGN about playing the boy wizard in the formative film series, sharing his affirmation that "some other version" of the movies will be created in the future.

"I’m sure there will be some other version of it. I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more in stage play Cursed Child."

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has kept the wizarding world alive (and is allegedly getting five films), as well as Pottermore and Harry Potter World. Radcliffe didn't rule out the possibility of a Harry Potter TV spin-off.

The actor recently revealed that the spin-off would be intriguing especially if it featured the Marauders- the name given to the group of friends featuring Harry's papa James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew and Sirius Black.

The Marauders gang aren't alive before the final book or movie, the movie would presumably be a prequel. "I feel like there are other stories from that world that you could absolutely turn into a TV series, 100 percent," Daniel told TV Guide.

"A series with the older generation Marauders, that could be very cool." Amen, Daniel, Amen.

“To a certain extent with things like the play and Fantastic Beasts, I think people are still interested in talking to me about it, but nothing’s been happening in that area,” he told E! News in May of last year.

“At the moment, I’m very much enjoying playing lots of different stuff.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter he wouldn’t mind reprising his role.

“I’m never going to close that door, but I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it,” he said at the time.

Radcliffe's latest role sees him take on the part of a low-level angel in Miracle Workers who must convince God to let humans survive.

Claire Foy has gained international recognition for her powerful portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown, Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web and now as Janet Armstrong in First Man.

As part of her acceptance speech for the #SeeHer recognition gong at the Critics' Choice Awards, she delivered a moving statement about the complexities of female roles.

She became the third actor to receive the accolade, which was launched by the Association of National Advertisers in 2016.

She followed in Viola Davis' and Gal Gadot's footsteps, winning the award which aims to increase the number of accurate depictions of women across the media.

Foy made sure to speak about how numerous people refer to her role in the 2018 Neil Armstrong biopic First Man as "just the wife", which she strongly opposes.

“I’ve had the opportunity to play some extraordinary women, for all sorts of reasons, and none more so than Janet Armstrong,” Foy said.

"She lived her life with such bravery and resilience and determination and love," she added.

“I can’t tell you how many times during the making of the movie and in the press tour that people said to me, ‘Well that part is normally the part of just the wife’." 

“And there’s no such thing as ‘just the wife’.” This statement got rapturous applause from the star-studded audience, clearly emphatically agreeing with the British actress.

Foy illustrated that it’s an actor’s responsibility to question who they portray, how they portray them and “how we want people to see themselves on screen” to create change.

Viola Davis presented Foy with the award, and Foy explained how she’d previously watched Davis’ acceptance speech for the 2016 #SeeHer award in preparation for her own.

She was eternally inspired by the outstanding Widows actor’s words that “the greatest privilege in your life is to be who you are.” WE STAN.

The actress concluded by saying she hopes the #SeeHer award will give her “encouragement” to be “brave enough to face and see myself”, and that she hopes it will also help others to do the same.

Thank the Lord, we're getting the answers to all of our 2019 questions.

The main question, of course, being: Where the hell are Lindsay Lohan's iconique characters RIGHT THIS MOMENT?

Strap yourselves in, gals. Lindsay spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her thoughts on the roles, and her answers seem pretty legit.

Take a look at what the former child-star had to say, some of her answers may surprise you:

Anna Coleman: Freaky Friday

Anna Coleman was the cool gal we all wanted to be, with Jamie Lee Curtis playing the famous role of Anna's badass mom.

"Anna Coleman is now running for office. Secretary of State, with Michelle Obama probably and Oprah Winfrey. In 2020, so be sure to vote for her."

Hallie Parker and Annie James: The Parent Trap

Her most infamous child star role, where Lohan played twins living in separate worlds who have NO IDEA they're related until they meet at camp and switch places.

"I think that they've swapped. I think Hallie is in London as a parenting counsellor, and then Annie is in California running a vineyard."

Maggie Peyton: Herbie Fully Loaded

The aspiring race car driver whose life is changed by her car, Herbie. Who can forget this character?

"Maggie Peyton is now the VP of Tesla."

Ashley Albright: Just My Luck

The gal who got to smooch none other than Chris Pine, and get her luck turned golden at the same time. We're jelly.

"Ashley Albright is running a fashion house. She's like a Diane Von Furstenburg with really good luck."

Aubrey Fleming: I Know Who Killed Me

Aspiring pianist and writer Aubrey disappears on a night out in the 2007 psychological thriller, and yet another random twin who was separated at birth turns up.

"So there's two ways I can go with this, because we didn't know if she had a sister or not. One is six feet under, the other one is FBI. They've both changed their names, so it's CIA, FBI and they're friends with Anna Coleman. So they're taking over the White House."

Cady Heron: Mean Girls

Cady is arguably the most famous character in the Lindsay Lohan repertoire, and lately featured as part of Ariana Grande's iconic Thank U, Next music video.

"Cady Heron is definitely back in Africa building homes for orphan gorillas. For sure, obviously."

Elizabeth 'Lola' Steppe: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

The Broadway obsessed 15-year-old gal played by Lohan who gets embroiled in the New Yorker life with Megan Fox.

"Lola would be a director on Broadway. She'd be directing Mean Girls right now, duh."

Rachel Wilcox: Georgia Rule

Rachel's a rebel who gets caught up in drug use, sex and drinking at 17. Jane Fonda plays the badass granny who turns Rachel's life around.

"Rachel would be a lawyer, definitely a female activist, for sure."

Casey Stuart: Life Size

The tomboy who plays quarterback on the seventh grade football team. Casey sets the world into crazy mode by trying to RESURRECT her dead mother. Yup, that was a plot-line, with Tyra Banks.

"Casey would be living in Texas dating a really famous football player. She'd be friends with Giselle and Tom Brady, they'd have kids parties together.

So there you have it: a comprehensive breakdown of every Lindsay Lohan character's lives in modern day.

According to the woman herself; "I'm pretty sure they could put every character together and create a really good Capitol Hill office."

Hmm, interesting notion. The standard at the moment doesn't exactly seem sky high to be fair…

Check out the original video below;

As far as modern-day Lindsay Lohan herself goes… who know's what character's she'll decide to play next.

In the wise words of Jamie Lee Curtis:

Emilia Clarke and Nicholas Hoult are set to star in a new movie about criminal couple Bonnie and Clyde.

The X-Men star and the Game of Thrones actress will star in Go Down Together, a movie about the iconic Depression-era lovers and outlaws.

This isn’t the first time that Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow have had a big-screen outing, as the charismatic Warren Beatty and the stunning Faye Dunaway played them in 1967.

The upcoming movie is based on Jeff Guinn’s book by the same name, in which he uncovered an incredible amount of detail about the couple!

Michael Sucsy, whose short resume includes The Vow and Grey Gardens, has been tapped to direct.

Go Down Together is the latest of many new project for Jennifer Lawrence’s beau, whose role in the X-Men franchise has made him seriously hot prospect.

Actresses tend to get significantly more attention than their male counterparts with women such as Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts never out of the spotlight.

But that doesn’t mean they get more work.

A survey of the top 100 grossing domestic films of 2013 conducted by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University revealed that women only make up:

  • 29% of major characters
  • 30% of speaking characters
  • 15% of protagonists

It also found that female characters were less likely than male characters to be in positions of leadership or have clear goals.

The study looked into the individual stories to see the impact of women in their roles and the types of characters they portray.

Isn’t it sad that women still can’t be seen in positions of power and leadership, even in fiction?
