Art demands a lot of preparation, dedication, and sacrifice. And when it comes to preparing for a new movie role, an actor has to go through many stages to confirm this very fact every time. To achieve the perfect character, many prefer to embrace the concept of method acting and there are roles where they have to put on heavy costumes, wigs, and deal with multiple layers of prosthesis and makeup on their faces. But, that is just half the battle.
