The illusion of knowing someone is abruptly dispelled when you think you do. Some actors are at comfortable presenting roles that are close to their hearts. Then there are actors who are totally unrelated to the parts they play. Even if you might assume Liev Schreiber scowls at veggies like Ray Donovan, he’ll tell you he’s a forgetful klutz. Rami Malek must have a lot of intensity, am I right? Beating him up and telling him not to talk more than six times a day? Nope. He talks all the time. 11 actors whose personalities contrast with the characters they play.
We frequently assume that the character we see in a movie actually looks that way, but then there’s Machete. It’s probably for the best that Danny Trejo is a genuinely wonderful person who has long since led a morally upright life. Read on to learn about actors who play some of our favorite roles yet are not exactly like the characters they play.
#1 Danny Trejo
Danny Trejo spent time behind bars and received boxing training in San Quentin. Through his job as a drug counselor after becoming clean and sober, he came across acting. Trejo gained popularity with casting directors and agents because of his menacing appearance and past. Still, in real life, he has spent many years being a family man and a straight shooter.
Trejo's appearance as if he could eat your face lends his characters in films and TV series an essential quality. He has unwittingly developed a career as a gruesome villain. He does, however, have a wicked sense of humor.
#3 Tom Felton
Tom Felton is obviously not the Slytherin monster he portrays in his renowned role as Draco Malfoy in real life. He is a kind man who cherishes the Harry Potter fandom, likes life, and has a complicated relationship with fame.
Jack Gleeson and Felton have comparable on-screen and television personas. He is almost as hated as Joffrey in Game of Thrones as Draco Malfoy. He also made a frightening murder suspect appearance in Murder in the First.
#4 Bryan Cranston
Bryan Cranston is, in fact, affable, silly, and wonderfully funny. He's also sensitive and kind. He is known for sobbing when recounting Jane's death scene in Breaking Bad. He is a person, a talented craftsman, and a clown.
In both movies and television episodes, he was perfect in his performance as Walter White. In Trumbo and All the Way, he played both Dalton Trumbo and President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Additionally, when disguised as a lion, he had a tantrum while hosting a lovely 60th celebration on Kimmel. Cranston doesn't think twice about abandoning everything.
#5 Keanu Reeves
In truth, despite being a voracious reader, a life philosopher, and an exceptionally clever actor, Keanu Reeves has had to deal with being called a doofus throughout his career. Since he keeps so much to himself, many people have attempted to fill in the blanks. Reeves' friends and family assert that most of this speculation has been false.
He reluctantly joined in on the Sad Keanu meme, admitting that "having your picture snapped when you're eating a sandwich is still bothersome. It makes me sad.
#6 Lena Headey
In real life, Lena Headey is a pleasant and energetic individual. A huge sob from the sister who was plotting, loving, and caring for her brother Cersei. She has described herself in the past as a "clumsy geek."
Lena Headey portrays the vile, incestuous, and narcissistic Cersei on Game of Thrones convincingly despite being a clumsy geek. Although she has portrayed numerous other roles with less despicable traits, none have been as memorable as this one.
#7 Rory McCann
In real life, Rory McCann characterizes himself as "goofy" and "a little bit foolish." He was such a diva on the Game of Thrones set that Maisie Williams had to manage him. McCann has worked as a bouncer, logger, musician, and tree surgeon.
Because he is so likable and quick on his feet intellectually, McCann gives the hate-filled Hound in both film and television plays a distinct, sympathetic quality. He also played up that funny side when he was Michael Armstrong in Hot Fuzz. When he wants to avoid being harassed in public, he takes on the Hound persona.
#8 Iwan Rheon
Iwan Rheon is a singer/songwriter who has a record out, despite not engaging in sadism on a regular basis. Rheon detested seeing Sansa Stark endure his character's cruel treatment in Game of Thrones, but he supported her when she developed bravery.
Rheon adored playing the bad guy in his film and television appearances even though he was aware of how hated his Game of Thrones character Ramsay Bolton was. He is as enthusiastic about doing what he loves as Ramsay is. Music appeals to Rheon. Before killing them, Ramsay likes tormenting captives both physically and mentally. Passions come in many forms, but they are always the same.
#9 Liev Schreiber
In actuality: When Liev Schreiber was younger, he was given the nickname "Huggy" because of his sweetness and good disposition. As an adult, he is articulate, perceptive, funny, clumsy, and occasionally forgetful.
He frequently projects a threatening air throughout his performances for films and television and has said, "This is a problem I've had my whole life." He has "Slavic fat pads" (his cheeks), which Schreiber claims make him look like a "homicidal chipmunk."
#10 Jack Gleeson
Jack Gleeson, a thoughtful and sympathetic man, raised concern about "unjust misogyny" in Game of Thrones in real life. He even briefly gave up acting after completing his major role in the show. He has now made a comeback to acting, co-founded a theatre company, and is older, wiser, and funnier than ever about the whole thing.
#11 Rami Malek
In reality, he is not Elliot Alderson. In no way. He's my total opposite," Rami Malek said. "I'm a person who is enthusiastic. I am fueled by love. I like to talk. On occasion, Elliot has assisted Malek in making a secure environment. The creator of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail, instructed him to offer the Elliot to everyone who approached him and to himself since "no one messes with that person."
His most illustrious role in film and television was as a stoic, mad hacker on Mr. Robot. But Malek will likely have a variety of options following the season.
#12 Nolan Gould
Nolan Gould finished high school at the age of 13. He has an IQ of 150. He became more well-liked by MILFs as he grew bigger and assumed his young man physique. “ I'm a hit with approximately 35 and above, and I play along, but I'm not going to do anything, he asserts... It is still illegal. I don't want a vulnerable woman serving out my prison term. I'm not waiting around for you to go.
In his delightfully dumb portrayal of Luke Dunphy on Modern Family, Gould downplays his talent in a rare act of humility. Gould has additionally made television and film appearances.
