Here's your challenge: Using the list below, create 21 sets, each with a historical figure and the actor/actress you would cast to play them. When you're finished, put all of the sets into a collection and send me the link.
Don't feel that you have to stick to actors who have already played these famous people in the movies or that your sets have to revolve around the time period that person comes from. Aside from capturing the "spirit" of that historical person (some research may be required!), let your imagination soar. You could modernize them, Disney-ify them, put them all in different time periods—it's all up to you!
