Seven performers who claimed that a role entirely transformed them

Pursuing method acting as a career is one thing, but when a job significantly affects an actor’s (Performers) physical or emotional well-being off-screen, even after the film is over, that’s a another story. From horror movies to TV dramas about doctors to memoirs, the roles that actors play often lead them to deal with a lot of personal concerns.

George’s stammer and other tics needed extensive vocal training for Firth to pick up on during “The King’s Speech” filming. Months after the movie’s premiere, he admitted to the Telegraph that he hadn’t entirely broken the practice in real life.

“You can probably hear even from this interview, there are moments when it’s quite infectious,” he said to them.

“You find yourself doing it and if I start thinking about it the worse it gets, if nothing else it’s an insight in to what it feels like.”

Richards, who played a kid in the horror classic being watched by Jamie Lee Curtis, remembers working with Nick Castle on set. Bravo claims that after seeing “Halloween” in its entirety, her opinion of Castle—who played the movie’s antagonist—completely changed.

“Seeing it for the first time all pieced together was a very, very different movie,” Richards said. It was just quite frightening. And up to the age of fifteen following that, I did, in fact, sleep with my mother. I was frightened.”

Perhaps one of the most iconic moments in any horror movie is Marion Crane’s disastrous shower scene at the Bates Motel, but it wasn’t without its effects. The actress who played her, Janet Leigh, has avoided taking showers ever since.

She told the New York Times, “I stopped taking showers and I take baths, only baths.” “I make sure the house’s windows and doors are closed, and I keep the shower curtain and bathroom door open. No matter where the shower head is, I’m constantly staring out the door.”

In the fantasy film “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” from 1988, Bob Hoskins conversed with cartoon characters for an extended period. Hoskins said that he kept seeing and hearing the characters long after the movie ended.

Express quotes him as saying, “I suppose I went a little crazy when working on that. I went crazy. You merely needed to know where the bunny and Jessica bunny would be at all times to hear their voices, which were always just behind the camera. The issue was that I had become proficient at delusions.”

To portray the dying Fantine in “Les Misérables,” Anne Hathaway underwent a physical makeover. However, it now seems that the job also had an emotional toll on her. 

“I was experiencing such physical and mental deprivation. I couldn’t respond to the turmoil of the outside world when I went home without feeling overwhelmed,” she told Vogue. “It took me weeks to get back to feeling like myself. When I returned from the first time I truly poured all into a scene—that was when I filmed Rachel Getting Married—no one was there. It was Adam this time. It’s great that he understands who I am and what I do and supports me in it.”

Although Paulson never smoked much in real life, she gave it her best to portray the renowned lawyer Marcia Clark in the film. She became addicted, as she said in a Stephen Colbert interview.

“When we first started, I was coughing a lot,” Paulson said. “But ultimately, however… I was itching to light up. I started to become very crazy about the cigarettes.”

With his eerie voice and grin, Skarsgård gave the Stephen King classic credit, to the extent that it affected his own mental state. He revealed to Entertainment Weekly that after playing the malevolent clown, the figure began to appear in his nightmares every night, even after the movie was finished.

Skarsgård compared it to being in a really toxic relationship. “Until they are no longer in it, people truly don’t recognize it. “You need to dump this piece of sh—, he or she is destroying your life,” say all of your buddies. After you’re through with it, you realize, “I was so miserable.” However, I wouldn’t say that working on Pennywise was a misery since I really enjoyed it.”
