The harder the role, the higher the stakes are for an actor because it’s more likely that their work will be appreciated by the viewers and judges of prestigious movie awards.

We’ll never stop adoring our favorite actors that shave their eyebrows, cut their hair, and do other crazy things without hesitation.
