Can a class that implments an Interface declare a member that differs from the Interface definition?

Last Modified: 2012-08-12
I thought the answer to this question was no

public interface Iface
   void func1(string name);
   void func2(string name, string surname);

public class MyClass : IFace
  public void func1(string name, int age);
  public void func2(string name, string surname, string address);

Open in new window

Is the above leagal or does the class have to declare members that exactly match the Interface definition?
