Many times we have seen films that have marked us and in which the main character is stored in our memory. It also happens that this sometimes leads to the success of the actor who plays that role, filling it with interviews, reflectors and money.
But Hollywood is cruel: one day you're at the top, everything seems to go great, and the day after the whole world just reminds you of a job. This has happened to these actors, who despite making various films, series, commercials and even music videos, are only remembered by one of their characters.
