Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy in 1929 and popularized by a 1990 play written by John Guare.
I'm watching Harry Potter & The Order of The Phoenix just now & it reminded me that a few years ago I worked out I could do this with the whole cast (I was trying to work out the SDoS to Toby Stephens as it happens but that's beside the point) so, for uh, I dunno, forum bragging rights, what are your best SDoS? Off the top of my head, here are mine...
1) The Entire Harry Potter Cast
Me > My Dad > My Dad's School Friend, who was editor of a UK Sunday paper ? Imelda Staunton, friend of my dad's friend, played Delores Umbridge on my dad's friends advice > entire Harry Potter Cast > JK Rowling
2) Anyone who appeared in the 1st Dr Who Reboot series
Me > My husband > Husbands's former work colleague, cousin of Chris Eccleston > Chris Eccleston
3) Entire Cast of Buffy
Me > My Dad > Dad's School Friend > Sold house to Anthony Head.
