Six Degrees of Separation Blog-a-Thon




Nostra of My Filmviews has created another blog-a-thon based on the idea of six degrees of separation where it would be the idea for this new blog-a-thon. The rules are simple. Connect an actor/actress with the movies they’re in or a director who helmed that film with another actor/actress/filmmaker in six steps or less. Alex of And So It Begins... decided to choose me since I’m such a gamer for these things as he wanted to connect actor Stephen Dillane with the legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.

Alrighty then.


1. Stephen Dillane co-starred with Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty


2. Jessica Chastain is about to appear in the film Miss Julie that is directed by Liv Ullmann.


3. Liv Ullmann starred in Persona (and 9 other films) that were directed by Ingmar Bergman.



OK, now I pass the baton to Chris of moviesandsongs365 to connect Ingmar Bergman to Toshiro Mifune.

And the gauntlet was dropped.

Nice work on connecting those guys.
Thanks for the baton! That's a tough assignment, I'll have to think :)

Bergman to Mifune. Nice.

@Fisti-I love these challenges. Just give me 10-20 minutes for my brain to work and... BAM! Just like that.

@Chris-I hope you can get the connection as I already figured it out.

@Wendell Ottley-What better way to connect a master in cinema with one of the great actors of cinema.

Awesome job! I thought this one sounded tough, so that's cool that you got it to work in three.

@Brittani-Well, I'm a sucker for these things and it gives me the chance to work my brain.

Wow I totally forgot Stephen Dillane was in ZDT. Great job connecting them in just 3 steps, Steven!

@ruth-It took a bit of time for me to remember he was in that film as it was a small role. Once I remembered that, it suddenly became easy for me to connect him to Bergman.

Nice quick connection here. I love Dillane in ZD30. He really nailed that cold government cadence.

@Alex Withrow-Thanks. It took me 20 minutes to pretty much figure it out.
