Acting in biopics is always a great challenge. Actors go through a variety of procedures – hair colouring, make-up. Then everything depends on their talent, they must master the movements and facial expressions of the characters they play.
The success of the whole film depends on if they can do it. See such transformations. Some roles require a huge effort, others light characterization. See for yourself! The actors are always on the right.
