Say it loud and say it proud: Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
If that mantra doesn’t immediately make you nostalgic for those days Explosions in the Sky’s “Your Hand in Mine” came on the screen and “Friday Night Lights” began, then you need head straight for Netflix and do some serious binge-watching.
It’s been 10 years since the premiere of “Friday Night Lights,” which was filmed right here in Austin. In honor of the show’s anniversary, the cast reunited at Del Valle high school during the ATX Festival in June.
Entertainment Weekly released footage this week from the cast’s reunion on the field in which they theorize on where they think their characters are today. Tyra Collette is likely back in Dillon, married to Tim Riggins. Jason Street built himself a great life and Luke is probably still pining for Becky. Watch below:
“I’m really looking forward to running on the Marriott Rewards team at the Spartan Race in Chicago and catching up with my former cast mates from the show,” Kelly told “ET.”
Fans can also sign up to run the race with the cast members.
Texas Forever, y’all.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the length of time since the “Friday Night Lights” TV show ended. The show ended in 2011; it has been 10 years since the show debuted in 2006.
Though Zooey Deschanel is the new girl in town, don’t forget that another buzzworthy actress called the capital of Texas home long before: “Magic Mike XXL” actress Amber Heard. The 29-year-old was born in Austin and can currently be seen receiving Channing Tatum’s athletic overtures in the male stripper blockbuster.
Here are five things to know about Heard:
1) Heard, married to actor Johnny Depp since earlier this year, made headlines Wednesday after she was summoned to appear in Australian court over allegations she smuggled her pet dogs into the country. The couple did not declare their Yorkshire terriers, Boo and Pistol, when entering the country in April, according to Australia’s agriculture department. Addressing the Australian government’s response to the incident, Heard told NBC “I have a feeling we’re going to avoid the land Down Under from now on, just as much as we can, thanks to certain politicians there.”
2) As is befitting an actress with Texas ties, Heard made her film debut in 2004’s “Friday Night Lights.”
