Please, please, please tell me that I’m not the only person who does this. As much as I’d like to sit still and stare at the television in a daze to forget life around me, I can’t - I have to be in motion, or else I can’t concentrate on what I’m watching.

One of my favorite things to do when I’ve got something on the TV is to set up my laptop to research whatever it is that I’m watching. From character bios to fan conspiracy theories, I’m all over it.

My son and I have been slowly working our way through the Netflix series, “Anne with an E,” which is based on Anne of Green Gables and although I wore out my paperback copy of the book when I was younger, my adult self forgot about some of the characters and so I started researching.

And just like that, down the rabbit hole, I fell. Before I knew what I was doing, I was looking up the real names of fictional movie characters generally only known by their nickname or first name.

How many real names of these fictional characters do you remember?
