The daily gossip: Tributes pour in for Chadwick Boseman, Emma Roberts announces pregnancy, and more

Harry Potter spoilers ahead (but really, you should know this by now). James Phelps, the actor who portrayed Fred Weasley in the Harry Potter films, discovered the fate of his character the same way we did, by reading the book. Phelps was in Japan when the final novel was released, and was riding a bullet train when, to his surprise, he read that Fred died. “I’m a bit shell-shocked at this point, because I didn’t realize how attached I got to the character,” he told Metro. Just as Phelps was processing his emotions, the ticket officer interrupted. “I actually said, ‘Mate, come on, I’ve just died here, let me have a bit of time to myself!'” [People, Metro]
