1/2. - Julian Sands and Hugh Grant, Maurice, 1987. Julian Sands, from US director James Ivory's previous film, A Room With A View, was delayed on Siesta, so Wilby took his role and Hugh Grant took his - and they were soon sharing the 1987 Venice festival's acting prize.
3. - Sam West, Howard's End, 1992. Too old for Leonard Bast in another Merchant-Ivory offering - Indian producer Ismail Merchant and US director James Ivory. So Wilby became Anthony Hopkins' "sanctimonious" son.
