To get used to a particular role is a very difficult task, requiring great professionalism, but sometimes it happens that actors and actresses are so talented reincarnate into their character, that they become literally one with him. So, no matter how many successful and colorful movies did not follow that very "star" role, the audience will forever associate the actor with that very character.
For example, there is hardly a person who would not be familiar with the charismatic Mr. Bean. But the name of the actor Rowan Atkinson, who gave the world this bright character, is not known to everyone. Today OBOZREVATEL offers to talk about the talented filmmakers who became hostages of the same image.
Since we're talking about Mr. Bean, let's start with him. The first episode of the show, recounting the adventures of the ridiculous and funny Englishman, was released in 1990. Comedy series gathered at the screens more than 20 million viewers. For Rowan Atkinson, this role was a great success, but at the same time this "curse", because to get out of the image of silly goody-goody in a red tie, he failed.
Samantha Jones has become for the fans of the cult TV series "Sex and the City" a real icon, a guru in sexual matters and just one of the brightest heroines of the project. Despite the difficulties in the relationship with the main actress Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall coped brilliantly with the role of Carrie Bradshaw's girlfriend. In addition to the series, the filmography of the actress has about a hundred films and TV movies, as well as many theatrical roles. However, for the public Cattrall has always remained a heartbreaker Samantha.
Tobey Maguire's career began in 1993 with the film "This Boy's Life" with Robert De Niro. Then the young actor was only 18 years old. However, the celebrity film did not bring much success, as did many subsequent projects. But the real glory fell on Maguire thanks to the cult superhero trilogy "Spider-Man", where he starred. The last part was released in 2007. Since then, no matter how talented the actor has been in other projects, most audiences call him Peter Parker.
The first film of the "Alien" trilogy was released back in 1979, and after its premiere Sigourney Weaver could safely call herself a world-class star. The role of Ellen Ripley brought her a lot of awards and nominations, including an Oscar. After this, in a career of an actress there were dozens of successful films, but to overtake her own success in the cult films about alien invaders, she never could - for most Weaver was and remains Lieutenant Ripley. True, a new generation of movie buffs associates the actress more with Grace Augustine - the head of the program "Avatar" in the cult fantasy of the same name.
In 2004, Hugh Laurie was offered to star in a TV series about the misanthropic doctor Gregory House. This role helped the British actor to wake up really famous. World fame and two Golden Globes, and with them a direct association with "Dr. House", from which Laurie can not get rid to this day.
