It’s been nearly nine years since the spies of MI5 solved their final case on the BBC drama Spooks. The show was one of the most popular and enduring dramas of the 00s, running for ten series after it debuted in 2002. Recent months have seen Spooks enjoy a resurgence after all of the series were uploaded to the BBC iPlayer at the start of the UK’s lockdown, introducing it to a whole new generation of viewers, as well as giving its original fanbase the chance to catch it again. With that in mind, we checked in on all of the fictional MI5 agents to see what the actors behind them have been up to since leaving their undercover lives behind...Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Quinn (Series 1-3, 10)Shortly after his role on Spooks came to an end, Matthew made the jump to the big screen, starring as Mr. Darcy in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice in 2005.From there, he played Daniel in 2007’s Death At A Funeral, portrayed John Birt in 2008 film Frost/Nixon and appeared as Stiva in 2012’s Anna Karenina. Other film roles include The Three Musketeers, Robin Hood and The Current War.TV wise, Matthew reunited on screen with former Spooks co-star Keeley Hawes in Ashes To Ashes in 2007 – two years after the pair married in real life. They remain together to this day and have two children. In 2010, he won a TV Bafta for Best Supporting Actor for his role in BBC drama Criminal Justice. After making a cameo appearance in the final episode of Spooks in 2011, Matthew had a lead role in BBC One’s period drama Ripper Street from 2012 to 2016 and appeared in two US TV movies. Most recently, he played Major Charles Ingram in ITV’s Quiz, a dramatisation of the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? coughing scandal, while he also appears as Tom Wambsgans in the critically acclaimed HBO series Succession.David Oyelowo as Danny Hunter (Series 1-3)Since David left his role as Danny at the end of the third series, he’s gone on to have a massive film career. He won huge critical acclaim for his portrayal of Martin Luther King Jr in 2014’s Selma, which saw him win the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture and Black Reel Award for Best Actor, as well as earning Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice nominations. In the same year, David also gave an acclaimed performance in HBO film Nightingale, for which he picked up a Critics’ Choice Television Award and Black Reel Award for Best Actor. David also took the lead role in 2016’s A United Kingdom, and starred in Queen of Katwe in the same year. His other film credits include Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), Lincoln (2012), Jack Reacher (2012), The Butler (2013) and Gringo (2018). David has also continued to make appearances on the small screen too, playing Javert in the BBC’s 2018 adaptation of Les Miserables and Edward in Channel 4’s 2013 drama Complicit, as well as providing the voice of Scar in The Lion Guard animated series and Alexsandr Kallus in Star Wars Rebels.  Keeley Hawes as Zoe Reynolds (Series 1-3)Keeley has taken on a wide range of roles since her character absconded after being charged with conspiracy to murder. In one of her first post-Spooks roles, she appeared in a modern reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, before having a guest role in two episodes of The Vicar Of Dibley in 2006. From there, Keeley took the lead role in Life On Mars spin-off Ashes To Ashes as DI Alex Drake, before playing another cop in 2010 ITV drama, Identity. Four years later, she was the main antagonist in the second series of Line Of Duty, with her character Lindsay Denton also returning for the third season in 2016. Arguably her most famous role came in another of Jed Mercurio’s series, Bodyguard, where she played home secretary Julia Montague in 2018. Keeley also had a main role in the second series of BBC drama The Missing, and until 2019, played Louisa Durrell in The Durrells. Other major roles include Mrs Wilson, Upstairs Downstairs and The Hollow Crown. Peter Firth as Sir Harry Pearce (Series 1-10)After Spooks finished on TV in 2011, Peter reprised his role as Harry in the 2015 spin-off film Spooks: The Greater Good, which starred Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harington. The same year saw him play Jacob Marley in the BBC’s Dickensian, before he then went on to appear as the Duke Of Cumberland in ITV’s Victoria. Other roles have included military drama Mayday, and ITV’s Undeniable, while Peter most recently appeared on TV in a 2018 episode of Sky One drama Strike Back: Retribution. Hugh Simon as Malcolm Wynn-Jones (Series 1-10)Like Peter Frith, Hugh also reprised his role as Malcolm in the Spooks film in 2015, having  played Dr Holland in the second series of Channel 4’s period drama The Mill in 2014.  He has also made guest appearances in shows like Doctors, Vera, Endeavour and Last Tango in Halifax, and has starred alongside Rowan Atkinson as Dr Paul in ITV’s Maigret TV films. Most recently, Hugh popped up in two episodes of Victoria in 2019 as Colonel Sibthrope, as well as Sky One sitcom Brassic and was most recently seen at the start of the 2020 in an episode of The Trial Of Christine Keeler. Jenny Agutter as Tessa Phillips (Series 1-2)Jenny was already a celebrated actor when she joined the cast of Spooks, but these days she is arguably best known for playing Sister Julienne in Call The Midwife since 2012. She’s also appeared in ITV drama series Monday Monday, and the BBC’s The Invisables and The Alan Clark Diaries, as well as making guest appearances in the likes of Agatha Christie’s Marple, New Tricks and Midsomer Murders. Jenny has also appeared in two Marvel films, playing Councilwoman Hawley in 2012’s The Avengers and 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Rory MacGregor as Colin Wells (Series 1-5)After wrapping up his role as Colin, Rory has had a number of guest roles in the likes of Casualty, New Tricks, Primeval and Ashes To Ashes. According to IMDb, his last credited TV role was in 2011, when he appeared in an episode of Doctors. Lisa Faulkner as Helen Flynn (Series 1)Lisa’s role in Spooks was short-lived to say the least, with her character Helen memorably killed off via a deep fat fryer 7in the second episode of the first series. From there, she appeared in two series of Murder In Suburbia as Det.

Emma Scribbins from 2004 to 2005, before playing Laura Scammell in New Street Law from 2006 to 2007. But an appearance on Celebrity Masterchef in 2010 changed the course of Lisa’s career and personal life. After winning the series, Lisa became closely associated with food, hosting Real Food Family Cook Off and What’s Cooking, as well as making frequent appearances in the This Morning kitchen. She also began a relationship with Masterchef judge John Torode, and the couple are now married, hosting John And Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen on ITV. Away from the cookery world, Lisa played a central role in Max Branning’s Walford revenge storyline on EastEnders in 2017, playing Fi Browning – the daughter of classic villain James Willmott Brown.Shauna Macdonald as Sam Buxton (Series 2-3)Shauna’s first big role after leaving Spooks was in the 2005 horror film The Descent, in which she played Sarah Carter. Her other film roles include 2013’s Filth and 2016’s The Correspondence, while she also had a minor role as a pilot in Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017. On TV, Shauna has popped up in the likes of Ripper Street and Bonekickers, and had main roles in BBC drama The Cry as Dr Wallace and In Plain Sight as Agnes Muncie.

He is now married to another former Spooks star Lara Pulver, although the couple never worked on the show together. Miranda Raison as Jo Portman (Series 4-8)Straight after Spooks, Miranda played Abbey in ITV drama Married Single Other in 2010, and the following year made appearances in Death In Paradise, Merlin and Sugartown. In 2013, she landed her biggest role in the US to date, when she was cast as Caroline Fowlds in 24: Live Another Day, and has appeared in other American TV series including Nightflyers and Warrior. Back home, she played Sylvie in 2018 ITV drama Dark Heart after appearing in a pilot episode two years earlier. If you have children, Miranda’s voice is also probably familiar to you, as she has voiced the character of Millie in Thomas The Tank Engine since 2013. Miranda’s also had a number of stage roles, including productions of Hello/Goodbye, The Winter’s Tale and Harlequinade. Hermione Norris as Ros Myers (Series 5-8)Hermione was best known as Karen Marden in Cold Feet prior to joining the cast of Spooks, and reprised the role when the show returned after a 13-year hiatus in 2016 for four more series. Hermione’s time in ITV drama Kingdom as Beatrice came to an end around the same time as her character was killed off in Spooks in 2009, and she has enjoyed a plethora of other TV roles since. In 2011, she appeared in BBC drama Outcasts, while she starred in ITV mini-series A Mother’s Son the following year.

Olivia de Havilland, one of the last remaining stars of Hollywood’s golden age and the oldest living Academy Award winner, died of natural causes on Sunday at her home in Paris. She was 104.Her publicist Lisa Goldberg confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.Gracing the silver screen in both big and small roles, in a career stretching over 50 years, de Havilland was perhaps best known for her performance as Melanie Hamilton in “Gone with the Wind,” and for making multiple films with Errol Flynn. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress twice, for “To Each His Own” in 1946 and for “The Heiress” in 1949.She is also forever enshrined in the history of workplace law, scoring a major legal victory over the Hollywood studio system in 1944 that became informally known as “the de Havilland law.” Her lawsuit against Warner Brothers resulted in California state regulations that limited the extent to which artists could be bound to contracts. It catalysed the eventual end of the powerful studio system, which often constrained actors’ career opportunities.De Havilland had a lifelong personal and professional rivalry with her younger sister, Joan Fontaine, which became a major part of her star persona and the stuff of Hollywood legend. The two actors ― the only pair of siblings to win Oscars in a lead acting category ― clashed over everything from their careers, to their romances, to their mother’s funeral. Fontaine, who died in 2013, said de Havilland resented sharing the spotlight and began antagonising her younger sibling as soon as she was born.“I remember not one act of kindness from Olivia all through my childhood,” Fontaine said in a 1978 interview with People magazine.Both were nominated for the Best Actress Oscar in 1941 ― Fontaine for Alfred Hitchcock’s “Suspicion” and de Havilland for “Hold Back the Dawn.” They were sitting at the same table when Fontaine was announced the winner.“I stared across the table, where Olivia was sitting directly opposite me. ‘Get up there, get up there,’ Olivia whispered commandingly. Now what had I done?” Fontaine later recalled in her memoir. “All the animus we’d felt toward each other as children, the hair-pullings, the savage wrestling watches, the time Olivia fractured my collarbone, all came rushing back in kaleidoscopic imagery. My paralysis was total.”Unlike her sister, de Havilland rarely spoke about the feud. But in an interview with The Associated Press for her 100th birthday in 2016, she referred to Fontaine as “Dragon Lady” and described their relationship as “multi-faceted, varying from endearing to alienating.”“On my part, it was always loving, but sometimes estranged and, in the later years, severed,” de Havilland said. “Dragon Lady, as I eventually decided to call her, was a brilliant, multi-talented person, but with an astigmatism in her perception of people and events which often caused her to react in an unfair and even injurious way.”De Havilland was born in Tokyo on July 1, 1916, to British parents. She grew up in California, where she and Fontaine, a year and a half younger, were raised primarily by her mother, a former theatre actor.As a teenager, she began performing in community theatre productions and gave up a college scholarship when she landed a role in a production of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Hollywood Bowl. She reprised the role in Warner Brothers’ movie adaptation in 1935, which launched her film career.“It was an illustrious beginning,” she told Entertainment Weekly in 2015.The studio paired her with Flynn, who ended up being her co-star in a total of eight feature films. Their onscreen chemistry spurred rumours of a real-life romance, but de Havilland repeatedly denied it. Later in life, she admitted to having feelings for Flynn, saying that their last film together felt like a “loss.”“I experienced a sense of grief and loss, a terrible feeling, but couldn’t define it at the time. I had sort of a sense of that you may know a person one way but not others. Errol and I were not sharing experiences and life but instead sharing the lives of these characters we were playing,” she recalled in a 2006 interview. “But, oh, he did mean a great deal to me, but in that day, a woman did not declare her feelings for a man.” After the success of “Gone with the Wind,” de Havilland’s career continued to soar. In addition to winning two Oscars for Best Actress, she also received nominations for “Hold Back The Dawn” and “The Snake Pit.” In the latter film, released in 1948, de Havilland played a woman living in a psychiatric hospital after experiencing a mental breakdown. The movie’s realism inspired states to reform conditions in mental institutions.De Havilland grew tired of the film industry and her celebrity by the 1950s. She moved to Paris, where she would remain for the rest of her life, taking fewer acting roles and preferring reality over the artifice of Hollywood.“I loved being around real buildings, real castles, real churches—not ones made of canvas,” she told Vanity Fair in 2015. “There were real cobblestones. Somehow the cobblestones amazed me. When I would meet a prince or a duke, he was a real prince, a real duke.” Later films included “Light in the Piazza” (1962) and “Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte” (1964), co-starring her friend Bette Davis. She also returned to theatre and appeared on numerous TV shows, including the NBC miniseries “Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna,” for which she received an Emmy nomination in 1987. As de Havilland got older, her deteriorating vision and hearing forced her to conduct interviews over email. Even in writing, though, she maintained her charm and wit and was candid about her career, including her experiences with sexism in Hollywood ― “a fact of life I simply had to accept,” she said in 2016.“Men felt threatened and mistrustful of women who had good ideas, and one had to employ immense tact when dealing with directors and producers,” she said. Men felt threatened and mistrustful of women who had good ideas, and one had to employ immense tact when dealing with directors and producers.Olivia de HavillandIn 1965, she became the first woman to serve as president of the Cannes Film Festival’s jury. The French government appointed her a chevalier of its Legion of Honor in 2010.U.S. President George W. Bush awarded her the National Medal of the Arts in 2008 “for her persuasive and compelling skill as an actor in roles from Shakespeare’s Hermia to Margaret Mitchell’s Melanie. Her independence, integrity, and grace won creative freedom for herself and her fellow film actors.”Although de Havilland retired from acting in 1988, she still made occasional public appearances to commemorate her films and career. As one of the only surviving stars of “Gone with the Wind,” she often attended anniversary celebrations of the classic film.She was met with a standing ovation when she introduced a presentation of previous Oscar winners at the 75th anniversary of the Academy Awards in 2003.“There have also been tributes and similar occasions that have called me back to Hollywood,” she said in 2015. “I’ve returned so often, I almost feel that I’ve never left.”Before she turned 100, she said that she hoped to live to 110. She remained in good health in her later years, regularly taking the stairs at her home in Paris and doing The New York Times crossword puzzle.At the peak of her stardom, de Havilland had several famous Hollywood romances, including with business mogul Howard Hughes, actor Jimmy Stewart and director John Huston. She married and divorced twice, first to American screenwriter and novelist Marcus Aurelius Goodrich. Their son, Benjamin, died of Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1991.She is survived by her daughter, Gisele, from her second marriage to French journalist Pierre Galante.

Instead of charging developers, Alpaca earns its money through payment for order flow, interest on cash deposits and margin lending, much like Robinhood.“I want to make sure that people even outside the U.S. have access” to a way of building wealth that’s historically only “available to rich people” Alpaca co-founder and CEO Yoshi Yokokawa tells me.Hailing from Japan, Yokokawa followed his friends into the investment banking industry, where he worked at Lehman Brothers until its collapse.After his grandmother got sick, he moved into day-trading for three years and realized “all the broker dealer business tools were pretty bad.” But when he heard of Robinhood in 2013 and saw it actually catering to users’ needs, he thought, “I need to be involved in this new transformation” of fintech.Yokokawa ended up first building a business selling deep learning AI to banks and trading firms in the foreign exchange market.Watching clients struggle to quickly integrate new technology revealed the lack of available developer tools.
Can Robinhood users actually call themselves Robinhood’s, or is it just another tool for the rich to rob the average Joe?Welcome to part 1, where we give a general intro into the series, and touch the surface of the data.Thanks to its revolutionary zero-fee trading model and easy-to-use interface, it’s accumulated over 4 million US users, and forced the whole brokerage industry to rethink its business model.Notably, US bank Charles Schwab recently announced it would eliminate commissions for online trading as well, making the company’s arm mostly reliant on interest gained from customers’ uninvested money.Making trading accessible to and alluring for the masses — including those with smaller pockets — and for the digital-native generation, sounds like a noble cause.The question however is, as always with trading and investing, how sensible are the actual trading and investment decisions being made?
Now, we finally know just what will be arriving day one, and hoo boy, folks: it’s a lot.This morning the official Disney+ Twitter account dropped a brief trailer highlighting just some of the films and TV that will be available – not just new and original content like The Mandalorian, but the vast library of series and films from the company’s near-century’s worth of old material.From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Mandalorian, check out basically everything coming to DisneyPlus in the U.S. on November 12.In what has to be one of the longest threads – if not the longest thread – ever made on Twitter, over the course of several hours the Disney+ account proceeded to tweet, in chronological release order, every single movie, documentary, and TV series that will be available as part of the launch line up.And so, without further ado, here is everything you’ll be able to watch on Day One of Disney+:Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Zero-fee stock trading app Robinhood is launching Cash Management, a new feature that earns users 2.05% APY interest on uninvested money in their account with the ability to spend it through a special Mastercard debit card.“If you have $5000 in your account while you’re thinking about what to invest in, you’d have an extra $105 at the end of the year” thanks to Robinhood Cash Management’s interest, co-CEO Baiju Bhatt tells me.But the product turned into a PR disaster when the Securities Investor Protection Corporation that was supposed to insure users’ funds declared Robinhood ineligible, with its CEO noting it had never agreed to cover checking account.Now despite Bhatt claiming “Cash Management is a brand new program built from the ground up”, it will offer the exact same debit card design and network of 75,000 ATMs .He joins the startup’s recently hired COO, CFO, Chief Compliance Officer, VP of risk & compliance, and VP of legal & regulatory to bring more supervision to Robinhood.That convenience could give Robinhood an edge as its loses one if its key differentiators.
Robinhood may be best known for its free stock trading, but today it’s rolling out a new version of the newsfeed, adding content from Reuters, Barron’s and market coverage from The Wall Street Journal, with no paywall or additional charge.In addition, Robinhood is introducing video into the newsfeed, with ad-free videos from CNN Business, Cheddar and (again) Reuters.The startup, which recently raised $323 million at a $7.6 billion valuation, has been showing more interest in content lately with the acquisition of the financial podcast and newsletter MarketSnacks — and as part of the redesign, the newsletter (now called Snacks) can be read directly in the app.“A lot of this is not even about making investment decisions,” Robinhood’s vice president of Product Josh Elman told me.“[Some users] check Robinhood very, very often just to consume the news and understand the companies that they’re watching, the ones that they are invested in and continuing to hold.”He added that just buying and selling stocks is “sort of a utility,” so Robinhood wants to help its users “to feel informed, to be empowered to make their own decisions.”
