In famous movies and TV shows, there are times when a certain character portrayed by an actor or actress is quite memorable, because of either the script, the character development, or the performance of the actor as well.
With such achievements, the actors and actresses may manage to land other successful roles in different movies, making us even remember more about them. However, there are also some stars who just shine for a little bit before going all the way into the oblivion.
1. Liv Tyler
Tyler gained international recognition for playing Arwen in The Lord of the Rings and Grace in Armageddon. She recently appeared alongside Brad Pitt in the science fiction flick Ad Astra. Well, we’d enjoy seeing her on the screen more frequently. Currently, Liv is occupied with caring for her three children and volunteering.
2. Madchen Amick
A number of men’s hearts have been crushed by Shelly, the waitress from Twin Peaks. Since then, she has primarily appeared in TV shows, short movies, and MVs. Amick dedicates her time to her daughter and son, which means her family.
We find it intriguing that her daughter Mina Tobias Amick-Alexis became interested in music and created a Twin Peaks-themed music video.
3. Matthew Lillard
The Scooby-Doo and Scream star had a successful start to his career in the 1990s and worked hard in the 2000s, but recently, he has only been seen in crime dramas. Even David Lynch collaborated with him on the newest Twin Peaks season.
4. Matt LeBlanc
Thanks to his portrayal of Joey in Friends, Matt gained international recognition. He made the decision to take a break from his career in the 2000s, and the break lasted a little longer than all of us anticipated.
LeBlanc didn’t have a significant comeback: he first hosted Top Gear and then made an appearance in another sitcom. However, we are optimistic that this charismatic actor will soon land a fantastic role.
5. Nicollette Sheridan
You undoubtedly remember Edie Britt, the real estate agent known for her scandalous personality and countless relationships, if you’ve watched at least a few Desperate Housewives episodes.
Nicollette Sheridan, the actress who played Edie, has experienced numerous high-profile divorces, scandals, and legal disputes. She has been in many TV shows, but she has chosen to take a break from acting to assist in caring for her mother.
6. Nikki Reed
Rosalie Hale from Twilight isn’t easily recognizable in the picture on the right. Since then, the actress hasn’t been a part of any noteworthy films, but we think her best work is still to come. She also currently volunteers in animal shelters and defends animal rights.
7. Scott Mechlowicz
Scott began his career at the age of 22 and shot to fame after the release of the movie Eurotrip. Following it, he was given a few excellent roles, but in 2018, he stopped appearing on screen. Given that he is just 41, we are hopeful that he will make a comeback. Many well-known actors began their careers considerably later.
8. Shannyn Sossamon
The films 40 Days and 40 Nights, One Missed Call, and a love triangle starring Heath Ledger in A Knight’s Tale all helped the actress become well-known. Shannyn primarily appears in unaffiliated movies and shorts. She is also occupied with parenting her two sons.
9. Wentworth Miller
The actor first appeared on screen thanks to his role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. His protagonist had a difficult life there as he turned into a sea monster.
And in Prison Break, Miller himself received the significant part of Michael Scofield. He later appeared in additional programs and even wrote screenplays. Furthermore, he declared a few years ago that he would stop playing Scofield and that Prison Break would not be returning.
