The caption mis-named the British actress “Kamilah Al-Jamil,” which is actually the name of her The Good Place character Tahani’s sister. One of the show’s running gags is that Tahani feels constantly overshadowed by her sister (played by Rebecca Hazelwood), which led the internet to speculate if it was truly a slip up.
Netflix was quick to poke fun at E! on Twitter, and Jamil herself later responded that it was a “joyous mistake.”

The Good Place was in the running for best television series, musical, or comedy last night, but lost the title to The Kominsky Method. The show’s lead actress Kristen Bell also lost the Best Actress in TV comedy title to Rachel Brosnahan in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The Good Place stirred up the hype for the show’s third season last Friday by live-streaming Janet (D’Arcy Carden) in her Void for five hours straight, according to TV Guide, where she did exactly what you think Janet would in her Void: absolutely nothing, but stand and smile.
The Good Place season 3 airs on NBC Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9:30 p.m.
