In 2004, the historical and adventure drama Troy was released and impressed audiences around the world. Directed by Wolfgang Petersen, the film allowed us to enjoy the magnificent Greece and the impregnable Troy. The film became famous in many ways thanks to its star cast.

OBOZREVATEL offers to recall how famous celebrities looked at the beginning of their careers and what they are doing now. It should be noted that age has made them even more attractive and in demand (to see the photos, scroll to the end of the page).

Brad Pitt as Achilles

The film was not easy for Brad Pitt, who was 41 years old at the time of filming. The actor spent six months training sword fighting techniques and suffered a "landmark" injury to his Achilles tendon. According to the plot of the film, the Achilles' heel is the only vulnerable point of the hero. Now 59 years old, the actor continues to be invited to successful projects. His last successful works were Deadpool 2 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.


Eric Bana as Hector

Bana played one of the film's main characters, the eldest son of the King of Troy. Bana's candidacy was suggested by Brad Pitt, who said that the courageous actor would look great in the film. At the time of filming, the man was 36 years old. Currently, the actor has over 40 films in his career. In 2021, he appeared in the film City of Secrets. The Hollywood star lives with journalist Rebecca Glisson and has two children with her.


Orlando Bloom as Paris

Paris is the second son of the King of Troy, who stole Helen of Troy from the Spartan King Menelaus. Orlando Bloom became famous not only for his roles in Troy, but also in The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and four parts of Pirates of the Caribbean. The British actor is now 46 years old. He continues to captivate audiences on the big screen, married to singer Katy Perry, with whom he has a daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom.


Diane Kruger as Helen of Troy

Helen of Troy is Menelaus' wife and later Paris' lover. The German fashion model beat more than 3,000 competitors at the casting call. But the girl had to work on herself, as the director demanded that she conform to the "Greek form" and gain 7 kilograms. During the filming, the artist was 28 years old. Now the actress is 46 and occasionally appears on the big screen. Since 2016, Diana has been in a relationship with actor Norman Reedus. On 2 November 2018, the couple had a daughter, Nova.


Brian Cox as Agamemnon

Brian Cox was seen in Three as the Greek ruler Agamemnon. The Scotsman became famous for The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, X-Men 2 and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. He was also the first actor to play Hannibal Lecter in the film Manhunter. In 2022, the man turned 76 years old. Cox has been married to actress Nicole Ansari since 2002. The couple has two sons.
