No one would doubt Ursula Andres's beauty but I look at Judi Drench as an attractive woman too.  Eye of the beholder.

I going to slap myself silly :doh:because if I were anyone else reading this post, I'd think that that guy had lost it.  So for the record >insert George's post

While Ursula Andress is much better-looking than Judi Dench (in ANYONE's humble opinion)

George

I was thinking Helen Mirren (don't know why, she is wasn't even in the discussion) in my mind not Judy Dench, I mean fine actress  but she's no beauty.  Ok.  I'm glad I got that out of the way now.  I was trying to download a picture of her when she was younger but I'm not sure how to do that.

Guess 2 is disqualified.

 

Guess 1 is correct.

 

She played the only "Eunice" I could remember.    Ok, let's see, next round, I'll need to think a moment....

Sherlock Holmes?

George

Although this IS a British role, it is NOT Sherlock Holmes nor anything Holmesian nor by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Shakespearean, perhaps.  Not one of the Henrys.  Lumley sort of throws a wrench into this, but if male actors can play female Shakespearean parts, there's no reason she can't play a man.

Macbeth?

Ah, Lumley didn't play a man.  :)  (It can be argued she didn't play a woman, either.)

This role is not Shakespeare, nor Shakepearean (no Marlowe, no Chaucer, etc.)  It's not anything you would have been assigned to read in school.    I'm sure you'll figure out the right answer as soon as you figure out the right question.

Frankenstein's monster?

George

You may have read "Frankenstein" in school.    Although Mary Shelley was English, Victor Frankenstein was Swiss/ Italian and  "the monster" doesn't really have a nationality.    This round is UNARGUABLY a British character.    And has not been around nearly as long as Frankenstein (nor Holmes, for that matter.)
