Persuasion: Recognizable Actors

Here are the actors/actresses on Persuasion movies who I recognized from other old-fashioned films.
(* means I haven’t actually seen it (or all of it); therefore I may not approve of it, but I always hear about that person being in that movie, or may have recognized them from the portions I saw.)

Miss Bates (Emma 1996)

It's interesting to know which actors acted in which films. Plenty of them rotated period drama roles.

Haha, you should add Random Mustachioed Andre/Firmin (Identity Doubtful) Weirdo from POTOTM to Ciaran Hinds' list of other appearances. Ehehehehehehe.

Would you rather hear the story...
