Young Sheldon has proved to be an international hit, with Season 3 set to air on Nine and 9Now in Australia. We took the time to chat to the stars of the show and find out just how much they know about our country.
Lance Barber takes on Aussie slang
Here down under, we’re used to all kinds of words that Americans aren’t. From ‘crikey!’ to ‘tucker’, we put Lance Barber, who plays Sheldon Cooper’s father George Sr, to the test, to see just how much he knew about the lingo we use in Oz.
Watch the hilarious video above to see which terms he knows and which he struggles to identify.
Cast of Young Sheldon taste test Aussie snacks
We’ve all grown up knowing what Vegemite is (and have different ways of eating it — butter always!) and put Cheezels on our fingers in primary school, but these iconic snacks aren’t available everywhere.
The stars of Young Sheldon, from Iain Armitage (Sheldon Cooper) to Raegan Revord (Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister), tasted some these snacks, and their reactions might shock you. Watch the video to see all their reactions and all the snacks they tried.
Taking on an Aussie accent
They’ve identified the slang and tried the snacks, but can they nail our accent. Watch the video above to find out how they fared when trying their best Aussie accent.
Young Sheldon Season 3 begins on Channel Nine at 7:30pm tonight, with aired episodes available for catch up on 9Now.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Finally Bought a House
Over the last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lived in multiple homes in three different countries, ranging from Frogmore Cottage—the Windsor home they received as a gift from Queen Elizabeth—to a luxurious waterfront home on Vancouver Island in Canada. But according to Page Six, they’re finally putting down roots in the United States, five months after moving due to the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday, the outlet reported that the couple bought a home in Santa Barbara, an hour and a half northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and have been living there since July. “It has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family—to have complete privacy for six weeks since they moved in,” a source said. “They intend to put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy. This is where they want to bring Archie up, where they hope he can have as normal a life as possible.” Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson confirmed the move to the outlet.
The source didn’t reveal any details about the house or what the first-time homebuyers paid, but said they were planning to stay for a while. “They have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie, giving him the chance to play with other children his age.”
It does mean that they’re forgoing the palatial and distinctive mansion that they borrowed from Tyler Perry, but Page Six’s source said that it’s for the better. “While it was a nice favor to them at a very difficult time, Tyler Perry’s house with 18 bedrooms isn’t Harry’s style,” they said. “Yes, he grew up in royalty and the halls of Buckingham Palace, but he prefers more intimate homes with character.” The source added that they were already in the process of buying the home when they filed a lawsuit against paparazzi for photographing them on Perry’s property.
Even before the couple announced their plans to leave the royal family, they were looking at properties in the Los Angeles area. Last September, sources told Vanity Fair that they were trying to buy in Calabasas, but by February, Caitlyn Jenner claimed she heard rumors that their hunt had moved to Malibu.

‘The Crown’ Casts Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip
The Crown has a new Prince Philip. Game of Thrones actor and Oscar nominee Jonathan Pryce is set to appear in both Seasons 5 and 6 as Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Variety reports.
The actor is taking over the role from Tobias Menzies, who played the prince in Season 3 and Season 4, which is set to premiere on Netflix later this year. Matt Smith previously held the role in Seasons 1 and 2. When Pryce joins The Crown for Season 5, he will be accompanied by Imelda Staunton, the series’ next Queen Elizabeth, and Lesley Manville, Season 5’s Princess Margaret.
Pryce earned an Oscar nomination this year for his role in The Two Popes, playing Pope Francis alongside Anthony Hopkins‘ Pope Benedict. He’s also appeared in Glengarry Glen Ross and Tomorrow Never Dies, and more recently played High Sparrow on Game of Thrones.
While the fourth upcoming season of The Crown is due later in 2020, fans will have to wait a while to see Pryce in his Season 5 role. The show is taking a filming break — pre-planned and unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic — and won’t be back for its fifth season until 2022, since Netflix won’t being filming until June of next year.
Creator Peter Morgan originally said that Season 5 would be the final installment of The Crown, but he pleased fans when he revealed last month that the show would continue for Season 6, which will be its last season.
“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” he said at the time. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day – it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
