Thank you for your post @Cleoriff 

Look forward to the pm with your eight answers after the WRQ opens at 12 noon

 

A hinto to all the quizzers...

A couple of questions are a bit tricky this time but there are no QI-style questions, where the answer is not what most people think...

Good luck

Re: White Room Quiz - Wed 3 June 2020

Just to clarify @Mi-Amigo, for this question:
Q2 [MOVIES - 1] Who played the character Charles Xavier in the X-men movies?
Do you mean the "old" X-Men movies or the more recent ones (or do you want both)?

Good point @gmarkj 

 

The quiz book I used gave the answer to the older movies, but on checking I realised there is also the more recent movies.

as I didn`t qualify this in the question, I will accept either... 

[if anyone knows both, you may, of course, pm them but there is no bonus for that]
