Harrison Ford is one of those actors who’s known and loved by multiple generations of movie-goers. It’s pretty much impossible to not know at least one of his iconic roles in movies, such as Indiana Jones or Blade Runner. However, the actor has proven many times that there’s much more to like about him than the roles he plays, from his efforts to help the planet to times he’s saved someone’s life off-screen.

Our favorite films and series have the power of taking us on a dreamlike journey over the span of a couple of hours or episodes.

But these actors have played someone who is the complete opposite of them.Bright Side has compiled a list of actors who have portrayed characters that are the complete opposite of themselves.
Sometimes, the characters we see played on screen and the actors and actresses who bring them to life could not be more different. For example, between character and performer, the age difference is something very flexible — it is not uncommon to see adults acting as teenagers or teenagers playing adults in convincing roles. They make it clear that, when it comes to talent and dedication, age is just a number that does not hinder a prodigious performance.
Some teen films were the leap to success in the career of many actors. Especially if the roles they played were part of a cult movie.

Celebrities don’t always agree when they get an offer to play a role from directors and producers. The reasons for this are different: some are afraid that viewers will find the movie boring, others don’t trust young directors and simply don’t see themselves in this role. For example, Charlize Theron didn’t want to play the mother of the main character in Wonder Woman because she considers herself too young for this role.
It might be difficult to imagine our favorite movie characters played by other actors. After all, it’s like the actors who eventually played the roles were always meant for them, and the directors probably didn’t even consider other artists for the part.

There’s a chance that any of the big Hollywood names you know got to where they are today because they made the right call throughout their careers. But there is no doubt that one of the most important questions in any actor’s career is which roles to take and which ones to let pass by.
