I could ask you to check every image in these two categories and all of their subcategories to see if the actress appears, since that would be an objective question, but I'll let you formulate the question yourself.

Basically, I want to know if the actress has a subcategory named after them in either of these categories, or appears in the filename of the images that are not in any any of the subcategories.

And yes, I know that someone reading this thread could mess with us by editing those 'lists', but I can live with that risk. Just let us know whether she is 'listed' as of the moment that you load the webpages for the first time.

And yes, I know that these are not really lists, but stay with me here!

Balki Bartokomous, let us know if this is still a 'no'.
What?

@JECE, are you asking me to go to the link and see if the person is still not there, in the event there have been changes?

Do you have any reason to think that the lists have changed?

It feels kind of like a new question to keep reviewing a changing list, but I don’t see why any of these lists would have changed in a day or two. What am I missing?

I share Balki's confusion on this point.

I still think Balki is wrong, and that the answer is Salóme Gunnarsdóttir. She is an actress from Iceland, who ticks all the boxes. As long as you are reviewing old answers, Balki, can you review THIS, too? Thanks.

Yes. You may ignore the request, of course.

How is Iceland a country where the primary language is English?

There is icelandic, of course, but English is common

Aimee Anne Duffy (born 23 June 1984) is a Welsh singer, songwriter and actress. Her music style has been described as a mixture of soul, blue-eyed soul, pop rock, neo soul and pop music.

Duffy released her debut album, Rockferry, in 2008. It topped the charts in several music markets, and led to worldwide attention. It was preceded by the lead single "Mercy", which reached number one in several countries and the top ten in twelve others. In 2009, Duffy received the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Rockferry, one of three nominations, and won three out of four Brit Awards nominations, for British Breakthrough, Best British Female and Best British Album. In 2010, she made her acting debut in the film Patagonia and released her second studio album Endlessly to moderate success.

In February 2011, she announced an indefinite hiatus from music. She briefly returned in 2015, appearing in the film Legend and later contributed three songs to its soundtrack.

Congratulations Hamish -- you have good taste. (I love Mercy!) But you have not selected the correct person. Not Duffy.

Not related to the game, but just because I'm curious, are either Aimee Duffy or Charlotte Church well known over there across the big pond? I mean are those people that you guys have heard of? Based on Balki's response, I think I kind of want to check out Duffy's music, but I haven't really had my finger on the pulse of pop for years, so I don't know.

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
It's a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And that emptiness you felt
Will disappear
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you, oh, oh
Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away, hey yeah
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time you'll find the way
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
That a hero lies in you
Mmm, that a hero lies in you
