It’s believed that the most important gift for actors and actresses is the ability to change themselves. However, it often happens that an actor gets stuck in a certain “type” that is hard for them to change thereafter. Viewers begin expecting to see these actors in only one type of role, making it very hard for them to show their multidimensional talent.
viral link has made a list of famous actors and actresses who managed to do something outside of their role type on the big screen. Some of them changed from comedy to a more serious genre, while others decided to stop doing dramatic films and opted for action movies and thrillers.
