Going for Gold

Was going to do this tomorrow but I won’t have chance.

I’m going to share facts about actors lives, Henry Kelly style. You can guess who the actors are but the aim of the game is to piece together which film unites them.

Make sense?

I’ll probably save the most obvious actor until last.

No idea how to score it probably won’t bother as I’m no @jook

All a bit of fun and my aim is to educate you in utterly pointless trivia about undoubtedly obscure actors. Might make it a weekly thing.

Any questions? Get them in quick as going for gold is about to begin…

Are you going to be using the Hans Zimmer theme music?

GOING FOR GOLD: WHO AM I?

Quite a large cast today, unlikely you’ll know any of them besides the star but there’s a few film nerds might be able to figure out. You will know the film though.

I WILL NOT BE POSTING CAREER FACTS, ONLY PERSONAL ONES

ACTOR 1

I was born in Kansas City in 1927, I was married to a Hallmark greeting card artist. My. children are called Dix and John and formed a punk rock band.

ACTOR 2

I was born in Aurora in 1957, when I turned 21 I found out my parents had spent every penny I made as a child actor. I was hit by a car in 1976 and remained in a full leg cast for 8 months.

ACTOR 3

I was born in Dallas in 1957. My son, Leif, is a (non-famous) actor. I have been called the most famour man in Lowville where the local video store twice wore out the VHS copy of the film in which we all star. I am now a vet, specialising in cows and horses.

I think I know it, do you just need to guess the film or wait for all the clues?

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

ACTOR 4

I was born in Wigan in 1934. My father played rugby. for Scotland, Great Britain, and Wigan, and died during a rugby game. My wife was in Eastenders, my son had a regular part in four Bond films. My daughter died from coronavirus this May.

CONGRATS.

actual end thread as I don’t know how to set rules or create a system.
