Why are all the examples here actresses who have played this trope, and not characters that fit it?

Well, the page is on the Actors index. Still, I agree — there seems to be some confusion around this trope. I keep seeing wordings like "this type of character is often also an English Rose" or (in this page's description) "An English Rose is a nostalgic idea of a beautiful young English lady. She is virtuous and possesses a certain type of modest beauty, and is portrayed by an actress of a certain type."
