The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders[edit]

Resolved

The link in the filmography is to the Robin Wright-Penn/Morgan Freeman film and not to the superior (IMO) TV series where Alex Kingston starred with Daniel Craig. TheOneOnTheLeft (talk) 11:14, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

  • If the image is non-free then you may need to upload it to Wikipedia (Commons does not allow fair use)
  • If the image isn't freely licensed and there is no fair use rationale then it cannot be uploaded or used.
  • If the image has already been deleted you may want to try Commons Undeletion Request

Done. I found one on Flickr with a CC license. Pburka (talk) 01:33, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Place of Birth[edit]

The article states that Alex was born and grew up in Surrey, however all other sources say London. There are no citations supporting this. This needs to be amended in the article, or proper citations added. Belfry (talk) 02:04, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

"Born just outside of London, England, in the suburban area of Surrey"[1]. Drbits (talk) 07:12, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

paternal great-great-grandmother was Jewish[edit]

What is the relevance of this: 'paternal great-great-grandmother was Jewish' ? She does actually look and talks Jewish! [takes one to know one] Even if her father was Halachically Jewish she would at best be half Jewish. I propose an 9/15 JONJ rating. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.168.28.134 (talk) 00:34, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Why is this important enough to mention in "Early life"? It should be under "Personal life" as part of the Who Do You Think You Are? discussion.
The phrase "She does actually look and talks Jewish" is considered an ethnic insult by most US Jews. There is no Jewish look or speech pattern, because Jews have dispersed around the world. The traits the previous writer identifies as "Jewish" are probably from her German mother[2]. Drbits (talk) 06:20, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Divorce date[edit]

Will the editor who keeps adding a divorce date for Kingston's marriage to Florian Haertel please stop. The date of the divorce is not confirmed. In the latest edit the sources added only state that "Kingston is ‘devastated’ at the collapse of her second marriage" (reported in October 2010) and "The couple parted four years ago" (reported in 2014). Neither of them explicitly provide a date for the divorce, just an approximate date for the breakdown of the marriage. There are other reports from that period that suggest they were still married at that time:

Please stop jumping to conclusions about when she divorced based on reports dated roughly to the approximate time her marriage broke down. A divorce date should not be added unless it is accompanied by a source that explicitly discusses her divorce, rather than the breakdown of her marriage in general terms. Betty Logan (talk) 14:20, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Alex Kingston married Ralph Fiennes September 1993 and they were divorced 28 October 1997[3].
Alex Kingston married Florian Haertel 29 December 1998[4] and they were divorced in 2010[5].
