    Erm...i played Tom Sawyer a few times, i responded to that name, i answered like him, accent and everything.  Although i’m strictly method acting.  Nothing about my personality is the same when i’m acting

    Shouldn't be.

    I've seen a few shows with younger kids that will have the same first names as their character.  Probably to make it a little easier.  

    Also, The Office, used their real names for some of their characters.

    Not at all.  What my name is has no relation to how I would choose to portray a character.

    The character name has no bearing on being able to portray them to any actor.

    A similar name to his or her own?  No - of course not.  Why would you think that?
