    too easy (or I’m just too old) – I could give you her real name, her character’s name, and her character’s handle. and quote about a dozen lines from the movie :)

    but I already bought my gala ticket!

      ditto on all counts including the gala ticket. The trick question is to link not to female protagonist, but link to the male protagonist, link it to the current TV show that he’s on, and then force a link to the BBC show of the same TV character, and then ask what summer movie the star of the BBC show is starring in this summer, and then ask what everyone thinks is the name of his character that he plays there but does not show up in IMDB.
