Actor Richard Madden shared a sweet throwback photo from his days as a “Game of Thrones” cast member.

Madden, who played Robb Stark on the HBO hit series which began its eighth and final season on Sunday, took to Instagram Thursday to share a photo of himself and fellow “Thrones” stars Kit Harington and Alfie Allen. Harington plays the lead character, Jon Snow, while Allen portrays Theon Greyjoy.

“#TBT This is Kit, Alfie and I after our first read-through of S1 Ep1 of Game of Thrones about 10 years ago. KIDZ,” he wrote.

ACTOR RICHARD MADDEN SAYS HE ‘DREADS’ FILMING SEX SCENES

The photo quickly elicited surprised reactions from other “Thrones” actors.

“Oh my god you’re babiesssss,” commented actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark.

“Legends,” wrote John Bradley West, who plays Sam Tarly on the show.

“Oh my god,” wrote “Modern Family” actress Sarah Hyland.

Other fans expressed sadness Madden is no longer apart of the show, as his character was killed off in a previous season.

“Robb deserved better,” one person wrote.

“Omg, so innocent, so unaware of what the series would do to your characters, lol. I don’t think I’ll ever forgive George R.R. Martin for killing Robb. He was/is my favorite character,” said another.

“Adorable,” wrote a third.

Madden made headlines earlier this week after revealing in a separate interview with Elle that he doesn’t care to film sex scenes — in fact, he “dreads” them.

‘GAME OF THRONES’ STAR KIT HARINGTON CLAIMS HE ALMOST LOST A BODY PART WHILE FILMING DRAGON SCENE

“I dread doing these things,” Madden, 32, told the magazine, which probed the Scottish actor about his sex scenes in the upcoming movie, “Rocketman.” In the film, which will hit the big screen on May 31, Madden plays singer-songwriter Elton John’s former lover and manager John Reid.

Madden added it doesn’t matter if an intimate scene involves women or men — he’d prefer to skip it regardless.

“With one, you get stubble rash, right?” he said. “That’s basically it. Otherwise, there’s no difference. It’s storytelling.”

An Ecuadorian judge has ordered the arrest of a former foreign minister, highlighting political tensions in the country that evicted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from the country’s London embassy last week.

Ricardo Patiño says in a video message on social media that he’s being wrongfully pursued for calling for peaceful protests against President Lenin Moreno.

Ecuadorian prosecutors said Thursday they’ve asked Interpol to help detain Patiño for allegedly urging people to take over public institutions and shut down roads last year. They say he is suspected of “instigation.”

Patiño is an ally of former President Rafael Correa, who granted asylum to Assange in 2012 and who has been feuding with Moreno.

Beyoncé penned a heartfelt tribute to former first lady Michelle Obama for Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2019.

The “Halo” singer wrote that “loving” the former first lady “came naturally” because “of how she carried herself.”

“Because she resembled us and was moving in spaces where, as black Americans, we weren’t exactly meant to be, she seemed so powerful,” she wrote of Obama.

BEYONCE DROPS SURPRISE LIVE ALBUM WITH RELEASE OF NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY

Beyoncé wrote she first met the first lady on the eve before former President Barack Obama’s first inauguration. She described the first lady as “strong and ambitious.”

She wrote she was “honored to know such a brilliant black woman who’s spoken about the sacrifice it takes to balance her passions while remaining a supportive partner and mother.”

She concluded her tribute saying she was “so grateful” that her children “live in a world where Michelle Obama shines as a beacon of hope who inspires all of us to do better and be better.”

Obama paid tribute to Beyoncé this week after the singer surprised fans early Wednesday morning by dropping a unannounced live album as her documentary “Homecoming” began streaming on Netflix. Obama tweeted that she was “so proud” the “Single Ladies” singer. She also posted a video of her message to the Grammy Award-winning musician.

“To you, my dear friend, I just want to say: Keep telling the truth, because you can do it in a way that no one else can,” Obama said.

The company behind blood pressure medication tablets has expanded a recall for two products after trace amounts of a possible cancer-causing ingredient was detected in the tablets.

Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited said its Losartan Potassium Tablets USP and Losartan Potassium/hydrochlorothiazide tablets, USP, are affected by the recall.

FROZEN TUNA SOLD IN NEW YORK, CONNECTICUT RECALLED AMID SALMONELLA OUTBREAK

The ingredient detected was identified as N-Methylnitrosobutyric acid (NMBA), a known animal and potential human carcinogen. The company said the recall only affects products found to have more than the FDA-allowable amount of NMBA.

The company issued an initial recall in December, followed by two more in January and March. The fourth recall includes an additional 36 lots of Losartan Potassium Tablets USP and 68 lots of Losartan Potassium/hydrochlorothiazide Tablets, USP.

A full list of the impacted products can be found here.

A 42-year-old man has been charged with critically wounding a fellow student at a university in Chicago.

Chicago police say Dejuan Doby pulled out a knife while in a classroom Tuesday at East-West University and stabbed a 20-year-old student in the back. Doby faces one count of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery.

Responding police officers arrested the Chicago resident at the school. The classmate was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but university officials have since said his condition has stabilized.

A Cook County judge on Thursday ordered Doby held on $7,000 bail and barred Doby from having any contact with the victim.

Doby doesn’t have a listed phone number to pursue comment.

NASA wants to send astronauts to the Moon’s mysterious South Pole

Westlake Legal Group nasa-wants-to-send-astronauts-to-the-moons-mysterious-south-pole NASA wants to send astronauts to the Moon’s mysterious South Pole fox-news/science/air-and-space/nasa fox-news/science/air-and-space/moon fox news fnc/science fnc Chris Ciaccia article 004c78ac-dd9b-57b5-97d0-84794645a30d

As President Trump continues to push America’s space exploration program forward with a plan to have astronauts return to the Moon by 2024, NASA is attempting to do its part. The space agency wants to send astronauts to the Moon’s South Pole — a mysterious region that has never been explored by man.

On Monday, the government space agency said the South Pole, which is abundant with ice and perhaps other resources as well, is a target ripe for exploration.

“We know the South Pole region contains ice and may be rich in other resources based on our observations from orbit, but, otherwise, it’s a completely unexplored world,” Steven Clarke, deputy associate administrator in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said in a statement. “The South Pole is far from the Apollo landing sites clustered around the equator, so it will offer us a new challenge and a new environment to explore as we build our capabilities to travel farther into space.”

AMERICANS WILL RETURN TO MOON BY 2024 — WITH OR WITHOUT NASA, PENCE SAYS

In August 2018, researchers found frozen surface water on the Moon’s polar regions, which could be broken down and eventually used for rocket fuel or oxygen to breathe. The scientists added surface ice could mean there is ice elsewhere in the solar system.

The map was created from images from the camera aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. (Credit: NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University)

Though humans have never walked on the South Pole of the Moon, it is “the most thoroughly investigated region on the Moon” — at least, robotically.

The elliptical, polar orbit of NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is closest to the Moon during its pass over the South Pole region and has collected incredibly precise information about the region during its orbits over the past decade.

“We’ve mapped every square meter, even areas of permanent shadow,” Noah Petro, an LRO project scientist based at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, added in the statement.

WATER MAY BE ALL OVER THE MOON, GIVING NEW HOPE FOR SUSTAINED LIFE

The water on the lunar surface is solid, due to the frigid temperatures in space, the lack of an atmosphere and the low angle at which sunlight hits the Moon’s surface in the polar regions. At times, the temperatures in the polar regions can reach -414 degrees Fahrenheit, which NASA described as “some of the lowest temperatures in the solar system.”

While the presence of water on the Moon is nothing new, (it was first discovered on the Moon in 2009 by three spacecraft, according to Space.com), the presence of ice on the polar regions could make lunar colonies a possibility. It would let astronauts harvest the water without having to bring it from Earth.

The presence of water on the Moon’s surface has also led some researchers to theorize its surface could have supported life billions of years ago.

“That record of water collection is a record that can help us understand how water and other volatiles have been moving around the solar system, so we’re very interested in getting to these locations and sampling the material there,” John W. Keller, a lunar scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, said in the statement.

Get the Look: Meghan Markle’s signature messy bun

Real-life royal Meghan Markle has made the messy bun hairstyle one officially fit for a princess, sporting the go-to ‘do time and time again since marrying into the British monarchy last spring.

Though some fashion insiders describe Markle as a royal style rebel, the former actress once revealed – long before she became the Duchess of Sussex – that she most enjoys approaching style and beauty with an effortless ethos.

“When I get ready to go out, it’s half hour and we’re out of the door. I don’t want to waste time getting ready: I want to go and have fun,” the California native told Esquire in 2013.

GET THE LOOK: JOANNA GAINES’ GLOWING, NATURAL MAKEUP

To that end, L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist Jonathan Colombini told Fox News Lifestyle just how to create Markle’s signature messy bun from the comfort of your own royal residence.

Based out of Cie Salon in Malibu, the celeb stylist’s clientele includes Kendall and Kendall Jenner, Olivia Culpo, Cindy Crawford, Kristin Chenoweth, Iggy Azalea, Ariel Winter, Laura Prepon and Camila Alves.

“This is always one of my favorite hairstyles. In the 18 years I’ve been doing hair, this look remains timeless. I’ve seen it repeated numerous times over the years,” Colombini dished. “It’s a great go-to for red carpet or a casual dinner with girlfriends.”

Surprisingly, he claims that just-washed hair is not the ideal canvas for the style.

As inspired by Markle, the bun can be coiffed as a high, middle, low or slightly sideways style — the royal has rocked them all. (Getty Images)

“To achieve this look it’s always best on day old hair. If the hair is clean, prep the hair with a great texture or dry shampoo to create grit,” Colombini detailed, suggesting to prep with R Mohla & Co’s Outer Space Flexible Hairspray.

“It’s mean to be effortless, yet chic. Whenever I create this look, I like to have the back twisted part fairly structured and the front to be a bit more lived in.”

“To begin, section out about an inch of your hairline from the center to just above the ear. Then, loosely pull back the hair (excluding the hairline) and either twist the ends into a French twist or chignon,” he said.

As inspired by Markle, the bun can be coiffed as a high, middle, low or slightly sideways style near the nape of the neck – the royal has rocked them all.

After clipping the twist in place – like with Conair’s classic bobby pins – Colombini advised moving to work on the rest of the tresses.

“With the hairline that was left out, you can add a curl with a one-inch barrel iron – like the T3 Body Waver. Either a center part or side part would work,” the hair pro continued. “Let the bits of your hairline fall naturally or you can tuck behind the ear.”

“To finish, give a good spray with L’Oréal Paris Strong Hold Hairspray for extra security,” Colombini concluded.

Voila! A chic, sleek look that even the Queen would surely approve of.

Powerful Emirati crown prince entangled by Mueller report

One of the most-powerful leaders in the United Arab Emirates has found himself entangled in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian interference in America’s 2016 election.

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, believed to be the Emirates’ day-to-day ruler, is the only world leader included in Mueller’s cast-of-characters index near the end of the 448-page report.

His inclusion, stemming from his mysterious role in a 2017 meeting between a Trump associate and a Russian middleman for Vladimir Putin in the Seychelles, stands out against otherwise-glancing references to the wider Mideast.

But left unsaid — or possibly redacted — is what motivated the UAE to insert itself as a middleman in contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Notre Dame Cathedral bees survive devastating fire: ‘Our Lady’s bees are still alive’

Hundreds of thousands of bees that lived on the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris have survived the devastating fire that erupted earlier this week, French beekeepers confirmed.

The approximately 180,000 bees were apparently intoxicated by the smoke of the flames, Notre Dame beekeeper Nicolas Geant told The Associated Press Friday.

“It’s a big day. I am so relieved,” he said. “I saw satellite photos that showed the three hives didn’t burn.”

NOTRE DAME FIRE LIKELY CAUSED BY ELECTRICAL SHORT-CIRCUIT, INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE

“Instead of killing them, the CO2 (from smoke) makes them drunk, puts them to sleep,” he explained.

Beeopic, a Paris-based urban beekeeping company, posted about the surviving bees on its Instagram page Thursday.

“Our bees at Notre Dame Cathedral are still alive,” the post said in French. “Confirmation from the site managers!! Our Lady’s bees are still alive!”

The day before, the company had posted a satellite picture of the hives that were still intact on the sacristy roof but said the fate of the bees was unknown at the time.

The three beehives were installed in 2013 on the roof of the sacristy at the south end of the cathedral. The sacristy, which is made of stone, sits lower than the cathedral’s main roof — made of wood — which burned and collapsed along with the spire during the fire on Monday.

Even though smoke is harmless to bees — and is often used by beekeepers to sedate the colony to access their hives — excessive heat can kill them by melting the wax that protects the hives. European bees, unlike some other species, stay with their colony in times of danger.

NOTRE DAME WORSHIPERS COULD PRAY IN ‘EPHEMERAL CATHEDRAL’ MADE OF WOOD; SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW SCOPE OF DAMAGE

“When bees sense fire, they gorge themselves on honey and stay to protect their queen, who doesn’t move,” Geant explained.

“I saw how big the flames were, so I immediately thought it was going to kill the bees. Even though they were 30 meters [nearly 100 feet] lower than the top roof, the wax in the hives melts at 63 degrees Celsius [145.4 Fahrenheit],” he added.

However, when Notre Dame officials got to the roof, they found the bees buzzing in and out of their hives.

“I wouldn’t call it a miracle, but I’m very, very happy,” Geant said.

The hives, which produce about 165 pounds of honey every year, were added to the sacristy as part of a Paris-wide initiative to boost declining bee numbers. Hives were also introduced above Paris’ gilded Opera.

Investigators in Paris said Thursday they believe an electrical short-circuit is most likely the cause behind the massive fire at the cathedral, though an investigation is ongoing.

Fox News’ Barnini Chakraborty and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Rob Gronkowski not only left his mark on the NFL as one of the greatest tight ends in history but it was also revealed earlier this week he left a mark on the Super Bowl trophy.

A video released by the New England Patriots from their celebration at Fenway Park on April 3 ahead of the Boston Red Sox home opener showed the behemoth athlete using the Vince Lombardi Trophy as a baseball bat. He used it to bunt a baseball and dented the trophy.

Gronkowski appeared unbothered when he tweeted his response Friday about his actions, only saying “Oopsies”.

The three-time Super Bowl champion announced his retirement in March in an Instagram post.

His former teammate Jason McCourty said the dent was “Gronkowski’s parting gift.”
