Have You Ever Been Shocked To See An Actor Randomly Pop Up In A Show Or Movie?

It shouldn’t be mind-blowing but sometimes it is!

We all know that actors often have a HUGE back catalogue of work, and I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that an actor you know and love has played a million different parts before.

But sometimes it just does! Like, have you ever been watching something and thought, “oh my god, that’s so-and-so from thingamajig”?

Today I Learned that the actress who played Miss Trunchbull is also the kind motherly mid-wife in Children of Men. My mind has been blown.

Here’s what we want to know – has there ever been a time you were surprised to learn an actor you know played another part and you never even noticed?

^ Sorry, I know this is complicated! Hopefully some examples will help…

Maybe you missed Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey as Miss Dickinson in St Trinian’s?

Or maybe you were surprised to learn Karl Urban of The Boys fame also appeared in the The Lord of the Rings trilogy as Éomer?


Amazon Prime Video/New Line Cinema

Or maybe it gagged you to find out that THE Donald Glover once starred in Girls as Hannah’s boyfriend?
