Trivia that mentions this person:
Spider-Man 2 [2004]
  • Mary-Jane Watson is performing in [?] Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest as the ingénue Cecily Cardew. Not only does Wilde's comedy also concern men with double identities (like Peter Parker), but Cecily Cardew is unaware of their purposeful deception until the end of the second act of the three-act play (much like Mary-Jane is unaware of Peter's duality until the end of the second movie in the trilogy).

  • Willy Wonka's line, "The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last" is a quote from [?] Oscar Wilde's play, The Importance of Being Earnest.
