■ Much like the first run of Twin Peaks, fu­ture plot points of the 18-episode re­vival of the ’90s show are closely guarded se­crets. Star Kyle MacLach­lan hasn’t even seen be­yond what has aired and is watch­ing it as it un­folds on Show­time. “I like to watch at home alone with a glass of wine,” MacLach­lan told Comic-Con at­ten­dees. “That’s all I need.” Some of his fel­low cast mem­bers, like Naomi Watts, said they have yet to watch a sin­gle episode. Se­ries co-cre­ator David Lynch, who di­rected the re­vival of the in­scrutable show, did not join his cast for the show’s panel at the con­ven­tion. But he still dom­i­nated much of their con­ver­sa­tion as they praised his vi­sion. Watts, who starred in Lynch’s Mul­hol­land Drive, said she still gets a lit­tle starstruck around him. “He’s so unique and living on an­other world,” Watts said. “You just want to join that world.” MacLach­lan, who said he doesn’t know if he would have a tele­vi­sion and film ca­reer were it not for Lynch, said: “He’s very ac­ces­si­ble to all of us and he’s very avail­able. And then there is a point at which he goes into a place that is purely David. This is him as the artist. At that point I be­come like a fan.” ■ Kens­ing­ton Palace has re­leased a por­trait to mark Prince Ge­orge’s fourth birthday. The son of Prince Wil­liam and his wife, Kate, cel­e­brated Ge­orge’s birthday Satur­day. Ge­orge, who is third in line to the throne, is beam­ing in the photo. The palace’s an­nounce­ment said Wil­liam and Kate “are de­lighted to share a new of­fi­cial por­trait of Prince Ge­orge to mark His Royal High­ness’s fourth birthday.” Ge­orge and his 2-year-old sis­ter, Princess Char­lotte, have been trav­el­ing with their par­ents in re­cent days on an of­fi­cial visit to Poland and Ger­many. ■ Coun­try singer Scotty McCreery, an Amer­i­can Idol win­ner and North Carolina na­tive, was cited af­ter au­thor­i­ties found a loaded hand­gun on him at Raleigh-Durham In­ter­na­tional Air­port, au­thor­i­ties said. Au­thor­i­ties told area news or­ga­ni­za­tions that they found a loaded 9mm hand­gun in McCreery’s back­pack at a se­cu­rity check­point on July 13. McCreery, who was fly­ing to Nashville, Tenn., told au­thor­i­ties that he had been at a fir­ing range and for­got to take the gun out, au­thor­i­ties said. The singer had a valid con­cealed carry per­mit, and he was cited for a mis­de­meanor con­cealed weapon per­mit vi­o­la­tion and was re­leased, au­thor­i­ties said. McCreery told WTVD-TV in a state­ment that he has learned a les­son he won’t for­get, adding, “I take gun safety very se­ri­ously.”
