WHATEVER HAPPENED TO…?
Acting is an enormously difficult profession.
It can be so trying that you’ve got to love it passionately to keep doing it. There’s always a tremendous amount of competition. You never know if you’ll be able to continue working. You can be beautiful, incredibly talented and have tons of charisma. But the next job could end up being your last. Nothing will protect you from that. It’s just the nature of the business. Even if you’re wildly popular, fame can be fleeting.
What’s definitely discouraging is running across deserving people that never got their due or, on the other hand, had it and lost it. EW invited their readers to put together a list of film performers who have yet (at this point in time) to live up to their fabulous potential. Some are working occasionally. A few are employed steadily but are not big stars at this juncture. Then there are the ones that have disappeared from the scene all together.
It’s unfortunate. Quite a number of these actors really have something. They just haven’t found the right roles. Let’s hope that things turn around for them.
Among the people featured here are: GRETCHEN MOL, THORA BIRCH, MENA SUVARI and MICHAEL PARE.
