    $\begingroup$ @jmp I didn't think movies tag would be appropriate because the tag description only mentions movies and not tv shows. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The tag is probably out of date. Movies/TV/YouTube are practically the same thing these days! $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


This must have been quite a fun puzzle to create! The connection between these roles is:

They are all played by actors/actresses with body parts (hence the title) in their name.

Like so:

1. Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones = Lena Kathren HEADey
2. Alexander Grayson, Dracula (2013) = Jonathan Rhys MEYErs
3. Bob Lee Swagger, Shooter = Ryan PhilLIPpe
4. Douglas Brackman Jr, L.A. Law = Alan RaCHINs
5. Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr, Rosewood = Morris CHESTnut
6. Norma Louise Bates, Bates Motel = Vera FARMiga
7. Eric Taylor, Friday Night Lights = Kyle CHANDler
8. Sabrina Spellman, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina = Kiernan SHIPka
9. Jen Harding, Dead to Me = Christina AppLEGate
10. Christopher Ewing, Dallas (2012) = Jesse MetCALFe
11. Olivia Pope, Scandal = Kerry WaSHINgton


The list is ordered from the top of the body to the bottom!
