13 Actors Who Were Really Going Through It While Filming Iconic Roles
Bless their little-engine-that-could hearts, they chugged their battered, bruised, and sickly bodies up that hill to deliver stellar performances. Normally, you would think, “Ugh, acting is so cushy. Try a real job like construction or Alaskan crab fishing.” But these actors pushed through some life-threatening obstacles, and some of them didn’t make it. A heartfelt R.I.P to those who did what they loved till the bitter end. That kind of passion for the craft is commendable. We just hope that 60 years from now, we’ll keel over at the keyboard (or some futurist writing tool) while banging out one of these lists.
That’s the dream anyway, and the folks who really endured while pumping out world-class work have inspired us. Whether they got to the finish line, or sadly had to be replaced, or almost made it, so their faces were digitally imposed on a body double, these actors were really going through some shit while filming these 13 now-iconic roles.
