They have been fond of acting since childhood

Fame can find a person at any age: both at 15 and 55. And there is no difference because the main thing is to leave a mark and take part in the creation of a brilliant product. This is proved by the heroes of our selection, who fell in love with the audience only after the age of 40. Before that age, no one paid attention to them and did not consider their talent unique.

OBOZREVATEL will tell you what movies made Patrick Stewart, Morgan Freeman, Christoph Waltz, Steve Carell, and Ian McKellen famous. You'll definitely have something to watch this weekend (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photos).

Patrick Stewart

British actor Patrick Stewart became interested in acting at school when he was 15. In 1969, at the age of 29, he made his television debut. American fame came to him only in 1987, and world fame in 2000. At the age of 60, Stewart played Professor Xavier in the comic book blockbuster X-Men. This is still his most famous film work.

Christoph Walz

Austrian Christoph Waltz studied acting in Vienna and New York, and his entire family was involved in theater. His English-language screen debut was in the 2000 film Orient Express, but it did not make him popular. It was only in 2009, when Quentin Tarantino directed the 53-year-old Christoph in the thriller Inglourious Basterds, that the celebrity conquered the world. In 2015, the celebrity played the main villain in the movie 007: Spectre.

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is incredibly popular these days. It is hard to imagine that the world audience fell in love with him only after his role in the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves".
