How The Staircase Adds a Meta Twist to a Known True Crime Story

Antonio felt that Colin’s likability as a celebrity figure—who doesn’t love him in Bridget Jones’s Diary?—was an advantage, explaining, “It allowed you to connect with with the character in the way that you should right away because we meet a person who’s a grieving husband and you need to connect with him in that moment. And then as things unfold, you have to start looking at him differently.”

And is where the writers started to stray from the documentary, which had stopped being filmed at this point.

By episode five, Colin really starts to pull on the heartstrings as he plays Michael, who is convicted and sent to prison. Once there, he’s beaten by fellow inmates and his kids are starting to move on with their lives, leaving him alone and the shell of the man viewers first met.

Episode five further shocks viewers with its reveal that The Staircase documentary editor Sophie Brunet (Juliette Binoche) started a long-distance relationship with Michael while he was in prison. She sends him books and letters in which she promises him that he will be free soon enough, inadvertently drawing her own credibility into question—and sparking a debate between the filmmakers.

Donny Osmond feared never walking again after singer was left ‘unable to move’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Donny Osmond underwent back and neck surgery in 2019 which had left him temporarily unable to move. The Puppy Love singer revealed his arms and legs went numb during the final performance of the musician and his sister Marie Osmond’s Las Vegas residency.

During their final show three years ago, Donny knew immediately something was wrong with him but the star’s eager fans were none the wiser.

The 64-year-old spoke candidly about the incident which led to a 12-month nightmare for the musician and proved a challenging time for the musician.

While on the stage at the Flamingo Hotel, Donny explained he continued to perform after his body went numb.

“I couldn’t feel my arms, then suddenly my legs too,” he explained. “I didn’t tell anyone what was happening to me. I just kept dancing and finished the show.”

The performer later visited doctors who found his spine had shifted due in part to previous dancing injuries, including one sustained when he won the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, called Dancing With The Stars in 2009.

While his back and neck surgery was successful, Donny had a shocking discovery during his recovery while at his home in Utah.

The former teen idol discovered that he had contracted a secondary infection and was unable to move.

Donny told the Mirror: “I thought everything was going to be fine, but it couldn’t have been worse.

Addressing his wife, the performer added: “She knows exactly the sort of determination that I have and she knew I would be fine.”

Donny and Debbie have lived in marital bliss ever since they exchanged their wedding vows more than four decades ago.

The longtime lovebirds became experts at maintaining their unbreakable bond even before saying “I do,” and it all started on the day Donny gave his spouse a kiss in 1976.

Debbie was playing hard to get, and I wanted to plan something really, really special for our first kiss,” the Masked Singer alum once told Utah Valley Magazine of a sweet date he put together for Debbie.

“I told her a limo would show up at her house at a certain time, and then we were headed to Sundance for dinner.”

Following their meal, Debbie went on a scavenger hunt to find presents that Donny hid for her.

Once she neared the end, her then-boyfriend asked her for a kiss and, of course, Debbie didn’t say no.

Donny has since taken up a solo Las Vegas Residency following his return to the stage.

Winona Ryder Calls Stranger Things Kid “the Next Meryl Streep”

Winona Ryder has real love—and respect—for her Stranger Things co-stars.

Ahead of the show’s season four premiere on May 27, the two-time Academy Award nominee reflected back on the legacy of the show, while heaping some major praise on its younger cast members.

“I continue to be blown away by these kids,” Winona told E! News. “I was their age when the show takes place. These kids are just magic.”

She can hardly even call them kids anymore. Millie Bobby Brown, who was just 12 when she was cast on Stranger Things, is now 18 years old.

Seeing Millie in her season four wig has made some people do a double-take because she bears a striking to resemblance to a younger Winona. “It was wild seeing her like that,” Winona said. “When I was that age, I had dyed-black [hair], goth going on. But there is definitely a resemblance.”

Winona, who has worked with just about every accomplished actress in the industry, saved perhaps her highest accolades for 20-year-old Sadie Sink, who plays Max. 

“Sadie is like Liv Ullmann,” Winona gushed. “She’s going to be like Meryl Streep.” No pressure, Sadie!
