Anyone who has watched Game of Thrones is probably hating Joffrey Baratheon. He is the very definition of a spoiled kid, and he’s beyond irritating. Jack Gleeson played Joffrey well – too well. In fact, he played it so well that it’s hard to see him in any other role now. His impression as Joffrey is forever engraved in the mind of many Game of Thrones fans, and it won’t ever fade away.
Well, that’s good acting, isn’t it? So, into your character that your fans just can’t see you in any other role. Here is our top 4 list of actors who are so immersed with their role, they are stuck with it now. We can’t see them playing any role other than that.
1. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean”
“Pirates of the Caribbean” was a great movie, but it wouldn’t be as good without the charismatic yet very greedy and petty Jack Sparrow – captain of the infamous Black Pearl.
Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow – it is almost as if he was born for this role. Everything about him just screams pirate and fun. Johnny’s Jack Sparrow is a treat to watch, and it fits him as much as he fits it. It’s hard to imagine another actor playing Jack Sparrow now, or Johnny playing another role rather than Jack.
2. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in “Twilight”
Pattinson’s most famous role is no doubt Edward Cullen. Love it or hate it, “Twilight” was quite popular back in the day. It sparked several discussions on online forums. Many people love the movie, but some didn’t. What is certain, however, is that “Twilight” has left quite an impression in the mind of the movie watchers, and hence, Robert Pattinson is forever remembered as Edward Cullen, by both fans and critics of the series.
3. Kate Winslet as Rose Dewitt Bukater in “Titanic”
Rose and Jack’s story will forever live on as one of the most romantic love stories in history. “Titanic” is iconic at this point and the main characters are also understandably remembered for their role. The Rose in Titanic was full of love when she was with Jack. And Kate was able to portray that love convincingly. And that was enough for the fans never to forget her. Kate will always be one of their French girls in the heart of the fans.
4. Sean Connery as James Bonds in “James Bonds” series
Sean Connery’s James Bonds was iconic. He was elegant, handsome and sexy. His charismatic demeaning won him the hearts of the fans back in the 1980s. Even though his last James Bonds was in 1983, many people nowadays still remember him as a cool and witty agent. It was just the right mix of coolness, violence, and confidence in Sean Connery that forever consolidates him in the James Bonds role. It’s hard to see him in any role other than 007.
