Quiz: Celebs And Movie Adaptations


Many of you are cognizant to the fact that I’m  a quiz-loving person– and because recently, I’ve been on a hard-drive based movie marathon, I resolved to design an analogous quiz on how well you know your book-to-movie-adaptations. I’ve always been the type to superimpose onto character faces those of the actors and actresses who bring them to life, so I decided to establish each item in terms of celebrities. The rules for this quiz is simple, and is as follows:

  1.  Each item is subsisted by a set of names, in threes, each of which belonging to a distinct celebrity who starred as fictional character in one of hundreds of movie adaptations based on books.
  2. He or she may have been a protagonist, an antagonist, or a supporting character with a critical role, no less than stellar. Your job is to provide the title of the related movie, and the names of the characters these actors starred as, full or otherwise.
  3. Encode your answers by typing them in the comments section below. Do NOT cheat by sneaking a peek at previous comments’ answers or by Googling them for that matter (you may flip through your books though– honesty system!)
  4. Each movie title and character name is equivalent to one point. I will confirm your scores with a reply to your comment, so do check back if you want to know what it is! A maximum of 60 points may be earned (you need 36 to pass!)

HINTS: All of the movies listed have been released, and may not necessarily have been based from a Young Adult novel. I will also provide a set of pictures after each number, in case you recognize the face and not the name.

So without further ado, here goes!

P.S. None of the pictures are mine, and all were taken from Google Images.


1. Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes


2. Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Logan Lerman


3. Robert Sheehan, Godfrey Gao, Lena Headey


4. Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, Max Irons


5. Douglas Smith, Leven Rambin, Brandon T. Jackson


6. Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore, AnnaSophia Robb


7. Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone


8. Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Abigal Breslin


9. Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell


10. Willow Shields, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone


11. Michael Cera, Kat Dennings, Jay Baruchel


12. Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Dave Franco


13. Anne Hathaway, Chris Pine, Julie Andrews


14. Matthew MacFayden, Rosamund Pike, Rupert Friend


15. Ian McKellan, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage



And that’s it for this quiz! So take a good long look at each picture, and comment your answers below! I hope you have fun answering, and if not, I at least hope to have provided you with enough eye candy 😉 Till next time!

And yup, those were Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Twilight (it is refreshing that you haven’t seen those movies, haha!). Dave Franco was in Warm Bodies yeah! As Perry, Julie’s ex-guy, the one R brain-snacked on XD So yeahp there you have it, pretty good score 😀

      • WOOOOOO!!
        lol I actually have seen those movies, but it was such a long time ago I can’t remember much about them. The only thing I remember about Charlie was when Wonka was all “Mom? Dad?” in a weird voice. Definitely prefer the original film… And ye gods Twilight was just terrible.
