Where you've seen him before: If 1999's Shakespeare in Love is too far back for you, you probably remember him from American Horror Story: Asylum. (Oh, and his brother is Voldemort.)

Where you've seen her before: Yvonne had a much different kind of role on NBC's Chuck — she played Sarah, Chuck's love interest on the show.

Ann Dowd as Aunt Lydia
