Rory Cashin

Happy Birthday to one of our favourite actors of all time!

Sam Jackson was born on 21 December 1948, and over the last almost-seven decades, he was gone on to become one of the most loved actors in modern cinema.

He has, inexplicably, never won an Oscar – and in fact he has only been nominated once – but he has starred in some of the biggest and most popular movies of all time.

So to celebrate him turning the big 6-9, here is a quiz based on his movies.

We give you the character name he played, and you tell us the film it was in.

To give you a little clue, you might be best saying the name out loud to yourself in your best Sam Jackson voice, because it will help immensely in remembering the movie it was from.

Ready? Go!
