Celebrities E-G Trivia Questions

1. Henry Fonda's face was printed on a series of postage stamps in May of 2005. What was the significance of this date?

From Quiz
Henry Fonda

Answer: One hundred years since his birth

Henry Fonda was born on May 16, 1905, in Grand Island, Nebraska. The 37 cent stamp that bears his profile, was part of the "Legends of Hollywood" series, and was released May 20, 2005. It was the eleventh in a line that honoured a number of America's most popular actors. A year after his birth Fonda's family moved to Omaha. This is where he would do his schooling and, eventually become a favoured son. Whilst here he became acquainted with Marlon Brando's family who also lived there. Henry would appear with Dorothy Brando (Marlon's mother) in community theatre productions. That said, the pair (Marlon and Fonda) did not socialise and this was due, mainly, to their differences in age.

2. What African nation was Ncouti Gatwa born in?

From Quiz "Hello, I'm the Doctor": Ncouti Gatwa

Answer: Rwanda

Ncouti Gatwa was born on October 15, 1992 in Nyatugenge, the down town section of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. His father, Tharcisse, was a journalist in Rwanda. The Gatwa family fled Rwanda during the genocide of 1994. Over the course of 100 days in the spring of 1994, the Hutu government of Rwanda murdered between 500 and 800 thousand Tutsi citizens. Given the short time frame, it was a killing machine that exceeded the efficiency of Nazi Germany or the Khmer Rouge. Especially disturbing because much of the killing was done with machetes. It was one of the more significant war crimes in a century filled with them. Ncuti is actually his middle name. His given first name is Mizero, which means "hope" in Bantu.

3. Ben Elton's first major success came as co-writer of the sitcom "The Young Ones" for the BBC. With which member of the cast did he write it?

From Quiz Mr Elton's Much Admir'd Work

Answer: Rik Mayall

In the early 1980s, a group of young comedy performers were making waves at The Comedy Store in London. Some were recruited by the fledgling Channel 4 into a project that eventually became "The Comic Strip Presents...", which was first broadcast on the channel's opening night in November 1982. In response, the BBC brought the group in to develop other projects, the first of which was a subversive sitcom that came to be "The Young Ones". Rik Mayall began working on writing the scripts alongside his then girlfriend, Lise Meyer, and a stand-up comedian called Ben Elton. Elton had attended the University of Manchester at the same time as Mayall (graduating two years later), and in 1981 had been hired to take over from Alexi Sayle as compere of The Comedy Store. The success of "The Young Ones" led to the BBC approach Elton to undertake further projects - in 1985, the year after the end of "The Young Ones", Elton was sole writer on the comedy-drama series "Happy Families", while he also wrote "Filthy, Rich and Catflap", featuring Mayall, Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer, all of whom had been in "The Young Ones". The same year saw the start of his collaboration with Richard Curtis as co-writers of "Blackadder".

4. Melanie's mother is a Hollywood actress and her father was a former child stage actor. In what city was Melanie born? Hint: Several of Melanie's movies take place in this major city.

From Quiz Melanie Griffith

Answer: New York City

Born August 9th in New York, New York. Tippi Hedren is Melanie's famous mother, an accomplished actress best known for her Hitchcock performances in "Marnie" and "The Birds". Melanie is her only child. Her father was Peter Atwill Griffith, who appeared on Broadway a few times as a child actor although his adult career was in advertising. Peter is the father of actress and chef Tracy Griffith, Melanie's half-sister.

5. When was William Fichtner born?

From Quiz William Fichtner

Answer: November 27th, 1956

William was born in Long Island on Mitchell Air Force Base.

6. In which country was Ryan Gosling born?

From Quiz Life of Ryan

Answer: Canada

He was born as Ryan Thomas Gosling in London, Ontario, Canada. He was born on November 12, 1980. His father was Thomas Ray Gosling, a salesman and his mother was Donna. Ryan grew up in Cornwall, Ontario. He has an older sister Mandi with whom he lived after their parents divorced.

7. She has always used the name Anita Gillette professionally, and Anita is her given first name. How did she acquire the last name Gillette?

From Quiz Anita Gillette, Underappreciated Brilliance

Answer: It was her married name when she started acting.

She was already married when when she began working as an actress, so she used what was her legal name, Anita Gillette. When she divorced Ronald Gillette, ten years later, she was well-established as an actress under the name Anita Gillette, and continued to use it.

8. Lillian Gish's favorite quote regarding acting came from DW Griffith, but she repeated it so often in interviews, people came to associate it with her. What was the quote?

From Quiz Lillian Gish, Great Star, Great Lady

Answer: "You get a living, you give a life."

Gish lived for the cinema, and the theater. When she wasn't making films, she was appearing on stage. DW Griffith may well have been thinking of Gish when he came up with this quote. It certainly sums up her life well. The other quotes are from well-known actors: "Acting ... personal process" is from Sir Ian McKellan; "Stillness...." is from Morgan Freeman; and "You should ... not yourself" is from Dame Judi Dench.

9. On what instrument does John Shuttleworth accompany himself when performing his self-penned songs?

From Quiz John Shuttleworth - the Man and the Music

Answer: Portable electronic keyboard

Although he has tried other portable keyboards, John's favourite instrument is a Yamaha PSS680 "Musicstation" electronic keyboard, which he uses to accompany most of his songs. It has the advantage of being easily transportable to all of the venues where he performs. The fact that it sounds terrible doesn't seem to bother him at all.

10. In 2006, Kirk Fogg directed and had the leading role in his most successful movie. What was this movie called?

From Quiz Kirk Fogg, from TV host to Director

Answer: Distortion

"Distortion"(2006) is about a former drug addicted cop in his search for his girlfriend who has been abducted. Kirk Fogg played an ex-cop named Porter.

11. When is Rupert's birthday?

From Quiz Do You Know Rupert Grint?
