The quintessence of acting is to impersonate a given character so convincingly that the viewer fully believes in the creation and thus gets drawn into the story of the hero or antagonist. Sometimes, however, it happens that an actor or actress will play so convincingly that then the viewer cannot separate the performance from its performer, no matter how many roles he would later play. On the one hand, this is a considerable ennoblement for a professional actor or actress, but on the other hand, it does not give the viewer full satisfaction from another creation of a given person. So it is a double-edged sword.
BuzzFeed asked its users about such acting performances in movies that made fans unable to look at another star’s performance, separating it from the creation that strongly influenced them. This is how the list was created, which is about the villain roles that flooded the list. You can check it out in our gallery.
