NOW WITH ANSWERS

“Hang on? Who’s that guy?” you may be wondering. Well, at the moment, he’s not quite as famous as his dad, but that may all change. He’s Brandon Cronenberg, son of David Cronenberg, and his new film, Antiviral , is in UK cinemas at this very moment.

Which has inspired this week’s Blastermind quiz, as we ask you to identify some famous sci-fi-related personalities’ equally (or sometimes even more) famous parents (or in two cases, grandparents). They may be actors, writers or directors… we’re not going to tell you. And their parents may be actors, writers or directors too. Although we will give you two clues: the guy who looks like Monroe out of Grimm isn’t Monroe out of Grimm , and the guy who looks like Morgan out of Chuck isn’t Morgan out of Chuck .

So, it’s a two level quiz; first you have to work out who’s in the picture, then you have to try to recall who their famous forebear might be. There are 20 in all. Good luck.

As usual it’s all just for fun and to give your little grey cells a work-out. Please don’t give answers in the comments section below, but feel free to post answers invisibly in this forum thread .
