While watching a movie, have you ever had a feeling that maybe you’ve seen a character somewhere in the same movie?
Well yes, it’s absolutely possible. There are fair chances that you had been right at times. There are some movies in which the same actors have played different roles and went unrecognized. It is very easy to miss such characters while watching a movie.
There are movies like Back to the Future: Part II in which Michael J. Fox, who plays the main character, Marty, also played Marty’s daughter. This is not the only movie in which multiple characters are played by a single actor. There are many other movies too.
It is quite shocking as well as interesting for the audience because even after playing multiple characters, these actors almost went unrecognizable. It is indeed impressive and the actors have done a great job. All the actors who played such roles deserve some appreciation.
In this article, we have collected the actors who have played different characters in the same movies. And, they’ve done their jobs so well that there is a very little catch to find out the difference. So, without wasting much time, let’s begin!!
