10 Actors Who Shared Their Dream Roles They Would Do Anything To Portray

In the acting field, actors are offered the chance to serve different types of roles that help them gain more experience in the world of acting. However, some actors are waiting for landing their desired roles on the silver screen.
It is true that casting an actor for a movie is not a piece of cake. Directors not only have a script full of interesting details but need to believe in the cast. For example, just because Scarlett Johansson portrayed Black Widow, a powerful woman in Avengers despite not having any superpowers, doesn’t mean that she can’t take on the role of a Disney princess. Despite nailing one or more roles, many actors and actresses still cherish the hope that one day, they can immerse in their favorite characters.
