Who do you share your birthday with?

Picking, say, 2 September 1972, and browsing through Wikipedia:

Nicolette "Coco" Krebitz, German actress and director (shown to the right on the cover of the New Order album Get Ready)
Bakhtawar Murad, better known as Sonam, Bollywood actress (this was her big hit).
Vincent De Paul, American actor
Marcus Nigsch, better known as Marque, Austrian musician
Sergej Trifunović, Bosnian Serb actor
Yoshiaki Takahashi, Japanese actor (killed in a road accident in 1989)
Erika Narumi, Japanese voice-over actor
Kobun Shizuno, Japanese anime director

Syleena Johnson, American musician. (Though some sources give her birthdate as 1976.)
Alberto Rionda, Spanish musician.

Maurto Denigris, Italian journalist.
Atsushi Kawashima, Japanese TV announcer

Pat Watkins, baseball player
Søren Colding, Danish footballer
Maksim Nizovtsev, Kazakh footballer
James Willis, American football player
Silvia Gemignani, Italian athlete
Katarína Studeníková, Slovakian tennis player
Leon Cameron, Australian rules footballer
Garfield Gonsalves, Antiguan footballer
Mefin Davies, Welsh rugby player
Betty Lise, French athlete
Thomas Schertwitis, Kazakh/German water polo player
Jermaine Guice, American basketball player
Elżbieta Trześniewska, Polish basketball player
Takaharu Murahama, Japanese mixed martial art fighter

Which all goes to show that the birthdates of people in showbiz and sports tend to be fairly well known.

I share mine with J.S.Bach and Fourier, which gives me ever such a warm fuzzy glow :-) It's always seemed quite apposite, really! I suppose technically Bach was part of the entertainment industry, but only stretching the definition to breaking point...

Wikipedia tells me that my birthday is also the anniversary of Thomas Cranmer being burnt at the stake; I think, on the whole, I'd rather avoid emulating that one.

Liberace, Studs Terkel, Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17), David Boreanaz, Henry Fonda, Pope Innocent XI, Louis Vaucquelin, Woody Herman, James Bolam, Robert Fripp, Judy Finnegan, Christian Lacroix, Pierce Brosnan, Olga Korbut, Hazel O'Connor, Debra Winger, Mare Winningham, Kevin MacDonald (Kids in the Hall), Krist Novoselic, Janet Jackson, Tori Spelling, Gabriela Sabatini, and the drummer from the Fratellis.

For a number of years David Boreanaz was listed everywhere as being one year older than me but he is now apparently three years older than me. I guess someone looked up his birth certificate...

Going through all years as nobody famous seems to have been born in 1958 according to Wikipedia (I've never heard of Armi Aavikko, Finnish singer (d.2002))... Edgar Rice Burroughs, C.J. Cherryh, Yvonne De Carlo (Lily Munster), Boxcar Willie, Roh Moo-Hyun, Gloria Estefan, Ruud Gullit, Tony Cascarino, and rather more notoriously, Mohammed Atta.

My birthday is also the death date of Pope Adrian IV, Louis XIV, Siegried Sassoon, Albert Speer, Wladyslaw Gomulka, and for those of us who used to watch football on ITV, Brian Moore.

Former Irish TD Derek McDowell (a good egg)
Current Irish TD Mattie McGrath
Fraser Kemp MP
Pennsylvania State Senator John Eichelberger
Finnish beauty queen and singer Armi Aavikko (died 2002)
Dutch general Mart de Kruif
Saxophonist Dan Plonsey

Not totally famous, but not utterly obscure either!

Only two - Heather O'Reilly (US Women's national soccer player) and Jennifer Heard (Australian actress), I did however discover that I am 5 days older than Lewis Hamilton. I always said January babies are useful. In my year group's defence, especially in non-sport/drama sectors, we still have time to make our marks.
