While I had no problem remembering the other famous Redgrave sister, I think Lynn was just as famous as Vanessa.

I think Lynn garnered more fame in the United States. I think that's why more quiz takers remember her better.

Never heard of 5 of them and couldnt think of Wanda Sykes. I think Vanessa Redgrave is definitely the more well known of the two sisters.

After hearing she's from big bang theory, I'm glad I have no idea who she is. I grew up watching Popular Mechanics for Kids with Elisha Cuthbert so that was a no brainer :)

I really think you should accept alternate spellings of Kaley and Hilary. I've never noticed that Swank only puts one L in her first name, and that Kaley doesn't have an I.

Got them all except for Edie Falco and Kaley Cuoco, who I've never even heard about. American TV people, I'm guessing?

Edie Falco is from The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie, while Kaley Cuoco is from The Big Bang Theory.

Another vote for Lynn Redgrave. I put her in first too, before switching to Vanessa. She was a marvelous actress, multiple Oscar nominations, and fantastic on Stage. Seeing her doing Shakespeare was one of my all time theatrical experiences.

Typed in Edith Falco and it wouldn't take it. Could you please accept that in the future? That could be why many people are getting that one wrong.

Same here. But then I remembered Edie when Edith wasn't accepted. Edith still should be acceptable as it is her first name.

She was the cheerleader on Heroes. That's how I know her. Though I've never seen anything she was in including that show.
