The Wednesday Night Quiz

Tonight I thought I’d swing back into action with a quiz, I think I will go with ‘Mr(s). X’, the quiz is simple, from the list of ten hints you have to guess who I am talking about, male or female, got it? Place your answers and the hint number you got it on as a comment. The objective is, obviously, to guess the answer in the least amount of Hints. There hints do not vary in difficulty they’re just facts, simple as that. You should by right get the correct answer after the tenth hint Good luck!

1) X was born in Burnley, Lancashire, England, though X spent most of early life in Wigan.

2) X won a scholarship to St Catharine's College, Cambridge and X’s first serious partner, Brian Taylor, a history teacher from Bolton.

3) X has starred alongside Stockard Channing, Donald Sutherland, Will Smith, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom and Christopher Lee.
