Chaucer

The famous author of THE CANTERBURY TALES makes numerous appearances as a minor character in the 'London Bridge' chapter of LONDON. Besides his literary activities, he was a customs official, a Justice of the Peace, and also had a family connection to the king's uncle, John of Gaunt. His role closely follows what details we know of his life.

The first MGM Lion was Irish. The iconic MGM lion, which appears before every MGM film since the studio’s birth, has been a number of different lions since the early 20th century, but the very first MGM Lion was a Dubliner! Slats, born in the Dublin Zoo in 1919, was used on every black and white MGM film between 1924 and 1928. To this day, he is the only MGM lion not to roar, though reportedly he could growl on cue.
