* On ''WesternAnimation/MarvelsSpiderMan'' , Scott Menville had no idea that he was auditioning for Doctor Octopus until official articles came out. He was only given a vague, inaccurate description of his character (a 19 year old high school teacher named Professor Harrison) and nothing else.

** Something similar happened with the English dub regarding the WhamEpisode of [[spoiler:Mami getting mogu-mogu'ed in Episode 3.]] What made it especially shocking for the actress was that she was still scheduled to do her character's lines the next day - she certainly wasn't expecting [[spoiler: to die so suddenly.]]

** A slight variant with Creator/GeorgeCScott: he was told to [[LargeHam ham it up]] for a "practice take" before the real takes. Guess which takes wound up in the actual movie. Scott was not happy, and vowed never to work with Creator/StanleyKubrick again.

Scott was not happy, and vowed never to work with Creator/StanleyKubrick again. He did, however, consider it cleverly done.

* ''Series/{{Westworld}}'':
** Creator/JeffreyWright is one of the few actors who knew that Bernard [[spoiler:is a host]],and even he was only told after the pilot was filmed, to allow him to put some subtle quirks in his body language.
** Defied by Creator/AnthonyHopkins, who specifically demanded to be given the full picture of his character as a condition after he was initially sent scripts with a lot of blacked out lines.

* In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', no one was told about Darth Vader's revelation until just before shooting the scene. And by "no one", we mean Creator/JamesEarlJones (who initially thought it was a lie) and Creator/MarkHamill (who was pulled aside and told the truth, and also didn't believe it): Creator/GeorgeLucas wanted so badly for this to be a secret that the scene was filmed with Creator/DavidProws saying, "No, Obi-Wan killed your father!" Prowse was very upset after the premiere, and told director Irvin Kershner his body language would have been completely different if he'd known the truth. As a consequence, the overdubbing for the scene is rather terrible; it looks like Vader has palsy or something, because his gesturing for emphasis doesn't fit the overdubbed line ''at all'' while you can pretty clearly see that it would fit "No, Obi-Wan killed your father" perfectly.

* Ryan Drummond said this along with poor voice direction was a big factor in why the dub for ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' was so poor. The actors all recorded their lines seperately, and their scripts only had their respective characters lines, and absolutely zero story context was written in or given to them, even if they were talking to another character. Not helping was that voice director Lani Minella's direction only ammounted to "sound excited" or "sound angry".

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance:'' The Unknown [[spoiler:AKA a time-displaced young Xehanort]] has [[ColdHam absolutely zero personal investment in the plot of which he is part]]. His voice actor was given his lines completely out of context to ensure that he had as little investment as his character did.
