Faces Of Period Drama Game

The game this week took a bit to put together but it's based on a new idea I had. The basic idea is I give you a photo and you tell me the character's name, actor's name and the name of the period drama they are from. This round should be fairly easy but in future rounds I might make the game a bit harder. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think! 

To Play: Look at the faces from period dramas below and guess the character's name, actor's name and what period drama each one is from. Try to guess without looking up the answers. Leave your guesses in a comment. I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next Saturday.

Scoring: Ten points for each actor, character and period drama guessed correctly. A maximum of 360 points can be earned!

1. Ramola Garai playing Kate Nickleby from Nicholas Nickleby (2002)

2. I can't recall the actor's name, but this is Mr. Elton from Emma (2009). He was perfectly cast for this, IMHO.

3. Carey Mulligan as Kitty Bennet from P&P (2005).

4. This looks like Ioan Gruffold as Horatio Hornblower from the film with the same name, but I've never seen it.

5. Gillian Anderson as Miss Havisham in Great Expectations.

6. Is that Greg Wise?? I feel like I should know this one...

7. Jane Eyre, perhaps? This doesn't look very familiar.

8. Ooh! I know this is from He Knew He Was Right, but I can't remember the actor and character names!

9. Judi Dench, but I don't recognize the film.

10. Dan Stevens as Edward Ferrars in S&S (2008).

11. Kate Beckinsale as Emma Woodhouse in Emma (1996).

12. Tom Hiddleston as William Buxton in Return to Cranford.

#3 is Carey Mulligan, I think as Kitty Bennet in P&P2005

#4 looks like Ioan Gruffudd

#6 is Rufus Sewell, I think in "Amazing Grace"

#7 looks like Samantha Morton, and I'm goign to guess she's playing Jane Eyre here, but I haven't seen her version yet.

#9 is Dame Judi Dench, possibly as Mrs. Fairfax in Jane Eyre, though I've only seen that version once.

#11 is Kate Beckinsale

#12 is Tom Hiddleston

Very fun game!
