Just want to confirm. Even those who weren't classically trained for theater but has done a Shakesparian work on the screen qualify here, right? The examples I added are those who I found in the The Other Wiki's list.

I was wondering something similar. I'm not sure simply appearing in a Shakespeare-based work should automatically qualify one to be considered a "Shakespearean Actor". If that were the case, Jamie Kennedy would be one.

I would recommend the definition be refined to include classical training and/or stage experience (if the latter is applicable).

@ Kevin Klawitter: Yeah, I agree. Though, some actors/actresses have appeared in more than one Shakespearean screen adaptation and underwent training for some of the roles that they basically fit. Molly Ringwald for instance.

Also, I've been wondering if the descriptions in the main page are really necessary. As far as I know this is a "List Page" similar to Actors, Producers, Directors, etc. You see, I was suspended for adding Zero Content Examples before and I don't want to get screwed again.

In my mind, this page should not have "any person who has ever played a Shakespeare character" but rather focus on these people where it had some significance. Being "classically trained for theater" is not a requirement in my opinion.

Whether the descriptions are necessary needs more discussion, though.
