* In a weird reversed example, ''Star Trek''[='s=] Grace Lee Whitney states in her autobiography that she sometime has difficulty differentiating reality and fantasy. For example, she recalls being disillusioned when she filmed an episode of TheWestern ''Bat Masterson'' and saw Gene Barry wincing in pain after stubbing his toe, despite the fact that any injury he sustained while in-character was OnlyAFleshWound. She also apparently tended to get so into roles that she started to forget it was fake. A therapist even told her that part of the reason she was so upset about being written out of ''Star Trek'' was because she had difficulty separating herself from Yeoman Rand.

* On December 23, 2016, in the wake of Creator/CarrieFisher suffering a massive heart attack and being rushed into Intensive Care, dozens of media outlets posted the story carrying a headline that read as if "[[Film/StarWars Princess Leia]]" had the heart attack, and not the actress who portrayed her.

* ''Film/TheParentTrap'' movies have convinced a fair number of people, mainly children, that Creator/HayleyMills and/or Creator/LindsayLohan actually has a twin. Understandable for the 1961 version, since the DoubleVision technique was new at the time.

* Dennis Haysbert (who played President David Palmer on ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'') tells a story about a couple of fans who freaked out when they saw him hanging out with actor Gregory Itzin (who plays President Charles Logan, [[spoiler: the man who ordered his assassination]], on the same show). The fact that the two actors are good friends apparently never occurred to anyone.

* Canadian actor Julian Richings starred in the Casper Van Dien sci-fi/action vehicle ''Film/ThrillSeekers'', in which he played a disaster tourist from the future who went back in time to visit various catastrophes. When Van Dien's character spots him onboard a plane, he immediately realizes that the plane is about to crash. As a result, anytime someone recognized Richings when he had to fly somewhere they would mildly panic, and he had to reassure them that nothing was going to happen to the flight. Nowadays, since his exposure on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', people who recognize him instead go "hey look, it's [[TheGrimReaper Death]]!"

* Infotainment shows constantly referred to the star of ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' as "Doctor [=McDreamy=]". Hey, you... yes, you the guy at ''Series/EntertainmentTonight''! He's got a name. It's Patrick Dempsey! He's only been a fairly well-known actor now for the last 20 years or so.

* Henry Winkler recounts a tale about his appearance at a charity event at a park in L.A. Before the incident, he says, it somewhat grated on him that he was so closely associated with the role of Arthur Fonzarelli on ''Series/HappyDays''. After, he began to understand how much "The Fonz" meant to others, and changed the way he saw the character. While standing around at the park, he heard from behind him the word "Fonzie!", obviously uttered by a young girl. He turned around, and was confronted by a young mother holding the hand of a little girl of eight or nine. The mother was staring, chin on chest, apparently in utter shock, but not for the reason Winkler suspected. After the mother recovered a little, she told Winkler that it was the first time her daughter had ever spoken.
