Talk:Oona Chaplin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Hi. I apologize for my English. The name of this actress in official form is Oona Castilla, because in Spanish-speaking countries people has two apellidos (~ family names): the first one from father's first family name and the last one from mother's first family name. I.e. the complete name of Rafael Nadal is Rafael Nadal Parera, but nobody calls him Rafael Parera or Mr. Parera. There are exceptions (mainly in Spain), like it could be Oona Chaplin's case, but a comprobation is needed. Regards. (talk) 08:21, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Hiya! First of all, don't worry about your English, it is very good! :) Thanks for pointing this out, but I think at least in the English-speaking world Oona Chaplin really uses the name 'Chaplin' instead of 'Castilla' as her stage name (for example, if you look at the titles of any of the tv series she's been in or google interviews in the British and American press, she's always named as 'Oona Chaplin'). Therefore, her full official name, Oona Castilla Chaplin, is stated in the infobox, but the article is titled 'Oona Chaplin' and she is talked of as 'Chaplin' throughout the article because that is the name she uses in her career. I added to the lead of the article that 'Oona Chaplin' is her stagename, hopefully this makes the difference between her official name and stagename more clear!TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 09:26, 8 June 2013 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3
She is also named as 'Oona Chaplin' in the posters for her two Spanish films, ¿Para qué sirve un oso? and Imago Mortis, so I guess she also uses the stagename there. TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 09:33, 8 June 2013 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3

"Most notable role"[edit]

I've deleted the sentence about her 'most notable role', because there were no sources for this claim, and while GoT might be the biggest tv series she's acted in so far, it is debatable whether she is best known for it. For example, in the UK she is also well known for The Hour and also received a lot of publicity for Dates –– her roles were also more substantial in both. She was also famous in Spain before she ever had any substantial English-language roles. In any case, she's not very famous and mostly works as a supporting actor, so debating on what her most notable role is might be futile. If one wants to add something about her career to the lead, perhaps something like "most notably known for her roles in GoT, The Hour and Dates" could perhaps be better.

"Profile Pic"[edit]

What is with that picture, aren't there any better copyright free ones out there? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:54, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

At least currently none at Commons - unfortunately.--Kmhkmh (talk) 15:54, 4 December 2013 (UTC)


As well as being Spanish, isn't she also British? (talk) 12:27, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
