9 Actors Who Got Way Deep Into Their Character By Method Acting

Many greatest actors in Hollywood nailed their roles in different movies, using method acting. That is an approach that enables actors to portray the most convincing characters. That means they don’t let go of their character even when the cameras stop rolling. Method acting requires extreme dedication, determination, and skills from the actors to bring the character to life.

Some of Hollywood’s famous actors adopted this approach, such as Warren Beatty, Marlon Brando, Robert de Niro, Meryl Streep, and Daniel Day-Lewis. Therefore, many iconic and remarkable characters and performances come as the direct results of the Method. Welsh actor Christian Bale is an example. He is prominent for undergoing extreme physical transformations for his roles in the 2000 movie American Psycho. Leonardo DiCaprio is also worth mentioning. His role in The Revenant- Hugh Glass requires unique skills to convince the character. Thanks to the Method, they nail their characters.

Today, we’ve gathered  9 actors who fully manifest their characters on-screen.

Superhero’s ego is sometimes hard to balance. And when Tom found his Peter Parker role as a high school kid, he decided to immerse himself in the high school climate. He sat in classes he wasn’t supposed to be in. People just burst out laughing when he said he was playing Spider-Man.

#2 Kate Winslet in Ammonite

Michael revealed that he kept his distance from others during filming to help him access his mental health after the movie wrapped up.

#7 Natalie Portman in Black Swan
