While some actors appear on-screen playing similar characters, others explore new facets of their talents. Sometimes it is very interesting to observe how a professional actor cleverly transforms into a totally different person.
We admire actors who are not afraid of artistic challenges and want to show you 6 of them.
Emma Stone — La La Land And Cruella
Emma Stone often plays pretty girls with a sense of humor. But this time, she will appear as the insidious villain, Cruella.
The film of the same name will be released in 2021 and will tell the story of this charming antagonist who loves everything in black and white and dreams of wearing a fur coat made of Dalmatian skin.
Robbie Coltrane — Harry Potter And Great Expectations
It’s hard to imagine Robbie Coltrane, the actor who played the good-natured Hagrid, without his long hair and beard.
However, in the 2012 film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations, the actor played a completely different character – he played the role of a lawyer, Jaggers.
Elizabeth Banks — Walk Of Shame And The Hunger Games
Elizabeth Banks is not afraid to portray diverse characters. In addition, the actress is willing to sacrifice her beauty to play a character in the most authentic way.
So for the role of Effie in The Hunger Games, she was made up in such a way that you could hardly tell who the beautiful blonde, Banks, really was.
Sophie Turner — Game Of Thrones And Josie
Sophie Turner is known to many for her role as Sansa Stark on the iconic television series Game of Thrones. In addition, the actress also starred in the new X-Men movie.
But in 2018, Turner was featured in the thriller Josie, where she played an insidious avenger and bounty hunter who had nothing in common with the Lady of Winterfell.
Jim Carrey — Ace Ventura: Pet Detective And Dark Crimes
Jim Carrey is an actor who has enough talent to play both comedic and dramatic roles. The fact that Carrey knows how to make people laugh and cry has already been proven by movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Flawless Mind, The Truman Show, and many others.
And recently, he played the title character in the dramatic thriller Dark Crimes.
