Matthews was actually a stage name – she's part of the wealthy Pritzker family, owners of the Hyatt Hotels chain. Although she had a couple of acting roles after A Little Princess, she now runs her own investment fund, Blue Haven Initiative.

Yes, that handsome daddy with the posh accent was none other than SER DAVOS SEAWORTH, THE ONION KNIGHT himself. A Little Princess was one of his earliest roles, but he acted in a whole bunch of things between it and Game of Thrones – including War Horse, Clash of the Titans, and Northanger Abbey.

(Psst... that's him as Prince Rama at the beginning of the movie, too.)
