For most actors, transforming into a distinct personality is part of the job. That might imply using prosthetics, gaining or losing weight, or wearing outrageous wigs and costumes. The celebrities on this list underwent significant changes to play their parts. These personalities bear no resemblance to the previous characters they played on TV shows and movies. These celebrities ended up looking nothing like themselves, whether it was for their roles in horror films or superheroes or becoming equally famous faces. Join us as we explore some of the most incredible on-screen changes.
Cersei Lannister – Lena Headey
Cersei Lannister, played by British actress Lena Headey, is a villainous character in the fantasy series Game of Thrones. In the show’s early seasons, Cersei has long blonde hair that is elaborately braided. She wears rich robes, is often seen sipping from a goblet, and is pulling at the strings of power behind the throne.
Unlike her Game of Thrones character, Lena Headey is rocking a much different look in real life. The actress has dark cropped hair and an array of tattoos – at least 13 that we know of. Cersei Lannister would definitely approve.
