Famous People NPCs in WoW

Oprah Winfrey – media proprieter, business woman and now retired talk show host was been described as the most influential and powerful woman in the world (CNN and Time), the most influential black person of her generation (Life), and most powerful celebrity for 4 years (Forbes).  
Paris Hilton, American heiress (great granddaughter of Conrad Hilton of the Hilton chain hotels), socialite and businesswoman, and Tinkerbell, named after her Chihuahua accessory dog.  Oh, but this is fantastic, if you have The Eye of Divinity (which is now no longer available in game since Cata) and you equip it next to her, you can see Ricole Nichie (Nicole Richie – daughter of Lionel Richie, and best friend of Paris Hilton).
Fabian Lanzonelli is very likely named after Fabio Lanzoni, the Italian model with the flowing locks, often featured on the covers of romance novels dressed low cut shirts like this NPC is.

(Interestingly, the above 3 famous people all sell bags in game…)

Named for Amelia Earhart, the famed American airwoman, who disappeared over the central Pacific ocean.
Though his stature doesn’t befit the name, The Rokk is probably a reference to the wrestler (and now actor) the Rock, Dwayne Johnson, who often said “Do you smell what the Rock is cookin’?!”  He does have a kitchen assistant, Gargoth, who does fit The Rock’s physical appearance….

Harrison Jones is a combination of Harrison Ford/Indiana Jones, and is an archaeologist much like IJ.  And good looking to boot.  Here he is looking hot and swish.

 Here is Harrison Jones in his adventure outfit.  Still sexy!

Clarice Foster is a combination of Jodie Foster/Clarice Starling from The Silence of the Lambs.
