16 Actors Who Look Completely Different When Letting Go Of Their Characters

There are a lot of factors that can contribute to an actor’s good look, especially when they’re in front of the camera. Asides from their born pretty faces, they also get help from other extras, and even crew members like production assistants, grips, and wardrobe stylists—basically, those who operate behind the camera.

Before the actors begin acting, they need a small group of make-up artists, hair stylists, and wardrobe stylists. These behind-the-stage professionals perform touch-ups, dab at sweaty areas, powder noses, comb, brush, and apply gel to lose hair, tuck it away and spray it, tighten ties, run the lint rollers, and bring out a recently steam-ironed blazer.

Many performers appear quite different from the personas that made them famous, while some actors flawlessly shift from their on-camera roles to their real lives. A little cosmetics here, a little synthetic hair there, and presto. If you happen to come across one of them in real life, you will probably see a completely different person.

#1 Worf vs. Michael Dorn

Worf is one of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s most sage characters, and he takes himself seriously. But in addition to being a skilled smiler on the red carpet, actor Michael Dorn is also pretty attractive when he skips the cosmetics and hair extensions.

#2 The Tramp vs. Charlie Chaplin

The’s correct: Without that big mustache, heavy eyeliner, and silly stride, this silent era actor turned out to be a quite attractive person. Who would have thought it?

#3 Daisy Mason vs. Sophie McShera

On the program, this Downton Abbey helper appears to be very unassuming, but when actor Sophie McShera walks the red carpet, she is completely glamorous.

#4 Kitty Sanchez vs. Judy Greer

Judy Greer is a smart (and stylish!) woman, despite what her strange Arrested Development persona would have you believe.

#5 Ichabod Crane vs. Tom Mison

See the difference glasses, a simple beard trim, and a haircut can make for a guy? This Sleepy Hollow actor carries himself like a contemporary, well-groomed man.

#6 Daenerys Targaryen vs. Emilia Clarke

While Emilia Clarke’s character in Game of Thrones has golden curls that fall to her shoulders and are waist length, in real life she usually wears her hair in a dark chocolate brown color and favors gorgeous red lipstick over bronze makeup.

#7 Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett vs. Taryn Manning

Leave it to Orange Is The New Black to fully convert Taryn Manning into a whole new person; obviously, hair, makeup, teeth, and clothing make all the difference.

#8 Jerri Blank vs. Amy Sedaris

You might not recognize this actress from Strangers With Candy just by glancing at her in character. Amy Sedaris, however, appears to be a very different person in real life without the heavy eyeliner, ridiculous outfits, and silly facial expressions.

#9 Blanca Flores vs. Laura Gómez

Laura Gómez, who plays Blanca Flores on Orange Is The New Black, has a drastically different appearance from her on-screen persona. Her real-life appearance is stunning, from her smokey eye to her sophisticated topknot to her lovely outfit.

#10 Steve Urkel vs. Jaleel White

Actor Jaleel White has seen significant transformation from his days as Family Matters’ favorite star. With his flawless facial hair and sharp black suit, he is now more gorgeous than ever.

#11 Cersei Lannister vs. Lena Headey

Lena Headey chooses a shaggy brown bob in contrast to her on-screen counterpart, who sports the long mane of Game of Thrones aristocracy. She also has decidedly un-Cersei tattoos.

#12 Suzanne Warren vs. Uzo Aduba

Actress Uzo Aduba lets her hair down as she rocks stunning evening outfits and crimson lips on the red carpet, in contrast to her Orange Is The New Black character, who dresses in a khaki jumpsuit and wears her hair in bantu knots.

#13 Gilly vs. Hannah Murray

Although it may be difficult to envision English actress Hannah Murray looking put together when you watch her role on Game of Thrones, she is actually very attractive in real life. And she also has stunning red hair.

#14 Quark vs. Armin Shimerman

One of the funniest characters in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was Quark, a member of the alien species Ferengi. Off-screen, Armin Shimerman, who played the character, is barely identifiable.

#15 Khal Drogo vs. Jason Momoa

Actor Jason Momoa is equally as attractive as Khal Drogo, despite not having the same tattoos, eyeliner, or stylish facial hair.

#16 Pepper vs. Naomi Grossman

There is no way you would know that actress Naomi Grossman portrays Pepper from American Horror Story: Freak Show if you saw her strolling down the street.
