We all have names in mind that we can no longer separate from their famous character. These actors have marked the collective imagination and some are condemned to be recognized for a single role despite their desire to move on.
18 celebrities whose significant role sticks to the skin.
1) Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter in the film series Harry Potter
Being a character still talked about years later, it’s obvious that Daniel Radcliffe had to be in this list. The main character of the film version of the wizarding world stars in other films, including the new Weird: The Al Yankovic story, but he will always be the child with the scar.
2) Millie Bobby Brown – Eleven in Stranger Things
Millie’s first role has taken such a big place in popular culture, it’s hard to see her any other way, at least for now. She is excellent in the skin of the investigator Enola Holmes, whose second part has appeared recently, and since she has a great talent, it is quite possible that she will manage to dissociate herself from her character of Eleven in the future.
3) Emma Watson – Hermione Granger in the film series Harry Potter
Obviously, Emma will always and forever be Hermione. She was excellent in The Perks of Being a WallFlowerbut did not have the graces of the public in its interpretation of Belle in the adaptation in real characters of The beauty and the Beast in 2017.
4) Robert Pattinson – Edward Cullen in the saga Twilight
Although convincing in his recent role as Bruce Wayne in the most recent version of Batmanwe can’t completely forget that Robert Pattinson played a scintillating vampire in the feature film series Twilight. Her colleague Kristen Stewart has a little better luck, as she has played several credible characters after her role as Bella.
5) Jamie Lynn Spears – Zoey Brooks in Zoey 101
Jamie Lynn surprised many viewers when she appeared in the Netflix series Sweet Magnolias. Even if her role is secondary, it is difficult to dissociate her from the role which separated her from the celebrity of her sister Britney, at the channel of Nickelodeon.
6) Jennifer Lawrence – Katniss Everdeen in the film series The Hunger Games

Actress Jennifer Lawrence is undeniably talented. She made such an impression on the imagination with her role as heroine Katniss Everdeen in the film adaptation ofThe Hunger Games that unfortunately, many movie fans can no longer separate the actress from the character.
7) Tom Holland – Peter Parker in the movies Spiderman
The cartoon character Spiderman was interpreted by three distinct actors and each time, it is difficult to no longer attach them to the superhero. First there was Tobey Maguire, who remains iconic in the role, but who managed to play believable characters, including his appearance in Gatsby the magnificent. Then there was Andrew Garfield, who has a thriving film and television career, and now Tom Holland, who may be too perfect for the role. He recently starred in the video game adaptation Uncharted and unfortunately, it was less convincing.
8) Zac Efron – Troy Bolton in the trilogy High School Musical
Our crush high school may play a father, a soldier, a bad neighbor, a lifeguard at the beach, Zac Efron will always be seen as Troy Bolton, the handsome basketball player from East High.
9) Taylor Lautner – Jacob Black in the saga Twilight
We have seen very little of Taylor Lautner on screen since her role as a sexy werewolf in the saga Twilight. One of the major reasons for this absence is that the character of Jacob Black does not let go of a sole.
10) Josh Hutcherson – Peeta Mellarck in the film series The Hunger Games
Growing up in front of the camera, Josh Hutcherson had a few roles before his big break in Hunger Games, but very soon after. His last cinematic appearance dates from 2019.
11) Sophia Bush- Brooke Davis in the series The Scott brothers

Long-range series are often fatal for the rest of a career. We can take Sophia Bush as an example, who got very little role after having camped Brooke Davis for 9 seasons. Her ex, who she shared the screen with, Chad Michael Murray, continued to land a few roles, but most of the actors on that show have since faded away.
12) Vanessa Hudgens – Gabriella Montez in the trilogy High School Musical

Just like Zac Efron, we cannot separate Vanessa Hudgens from the young studious Gabriella Montez in the trilogy High School Musical. She has various roles in Christmas movies Princess Switchbut it is much less convincing.
13) Jamie Dornan – Christian Gray in the saga 50 shades of gray
The actors of sensual films 50 shades of gray now have fictitious names glued to their skin. Jamie having interpreted the famous Christian Gray, it is difficult to see him camp other characters.
14) Anya Taylor-Joy – Beth Harmon in the Netflix series The Queen’s Game
We love the uniqueness of Anya Taylor-Joy. The actress is talented. She portrayed Beth Harmon so convincingly that role is now tattooed on her skin. We like to see her in other productions, but The Queen’s Game remains the most remarkable.
15) Dakota Johnson – Anastasia Steele in the saga 50 shades of gray
Like her costar, Dakota performed a role that has caused so much talk that she will have to live with Anastasia forever. She recently appeared in a period film, Persuasionwhich helps to distance herself from the submissive Anastasia, but the roles obtained between these feature films have failed to make us forget the gray.
16) Sarah Michelle Gellar – Buffy Summers in buffy the vampire slayer
Sarah Michelle Gellar was at the height of fame in the early 2000s. Her role as Buffy left its mark on an entire generation, and that may have hurt subsequent roles. She portrayed Daphne in the anime adaptation Scooby Doo and had a long absence from the screens thereafter. Several fans were happy to see her in the role of the school principal in the Netflix movie Do Revenge, with Camila Mendes.
17) Anna Kendrick – Beca Mitchell in the trilogy The perfect score
We remember Anna who passed the auditions with a plastic cup for the A Capella groups of the University. She starred in the next two installments of The perfect score as well as in a few films, but this role of singing student sticks to her skin.
18) Alexis Bledel-Rory Gilmore
Rory’s role was Alexis’ first. This series is a classic even today, and that’s why it’s hard to accept that she plays someone else. His most recent role is that of Ofglen in The Scarlet Maidbut Rory always sticks out a bit.
