* OlderThanSteam: In ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', Polonius mentions having played the role of Julius Caesar as a youth, and being killed by Brutus; it is believed that the same actor in Shakespeare's company played both Polonius and Caesar. It's also believed that the original actor of Hamlet, Richard Burbage, also played Brutus in ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', thus stabbing the same actor in two different plays.
