Period Drama Actors - Multiple Choice Game!

Right-ho, so it's about time for a game again. The rules are simple (as they always are, right?) - guess the answer, and then comment with your guesses. The point of the game is to guess what Period Drama the actor/actress I mention does NOT act in. Mark the not. :-) So three of the multiple answers will be movies the actor/tress does act in - you have to find the one it doesn't act in. Got it? :-P

I won't publish the comments till next week, when I shall release the answers. Another thing: Do not go and google the actors and actresses. You can click on their names - I have always added a link to a picture of the actors' face, just in case you have no clue who I'm talking about it. But don't google them, or you might see a picture of them in a Period Drama and voilĂ , thou hast cheated. (Also, please don't google the Period Dramas. Play fair, peasants.)

Have fun!
