11 Actors Who Requested To Change Their Scripts And Brilliantly Shaped Their Characters

The actor’s duties are more than just learning lines by heart and repeating them in front of the cameras. A skilled actor knows how to bring their characters to life and deal with unexpected challenges. Actors should adopt their characters in the most passionate ways.

But the characters sometimes go far beyond the script. Then, the actors speak out their opinions about the characters. They don’t even follow the director’s instructions and decide to change the scripts.

Not many actors are willing to get an extreme weight gain or have a special diet to lose extra kilos within a month. But some actors did request a change to bring us more convincing characters. Indeed, these actors have shown their brilliant acting skills and dedication. There is little doubt that acting isn’t an easy job.

Today, we have compiled a list of 11 actors who decided to change the script, and they made it. Scrolling down and enjoy!
