Film Roles: Role to Actor

This page covers questions in the style "Who played [character's name or description] in [film title]?".

Note that Films: General also covers many questions in this style (particularly where there are several notable roles or performances in the same film).

Note also that in the interests of succinctness – never mind gender equality – I use the term 'actor' to include both male and female actors.
