* Some Conservative Americans don't seem to realize that Creator/BradleyCooper, who played Chris Kyle in Film/AmericanSniper, is not a Conservative American like Chris in RealLife as Bradley is a liberal and Democrat Party supporter and has done films that most Conservatives would balk like Film/WeddingCrashers and Film/TheHangover.

*** However, she seems to embrace being Princess Leia. When called back to reprise her role over 30 years later for the sequel trilogy, she stated, "No, Iím a female and in Hollywood itís difficult to get work after 30ómaybe itís getting to be 40 now. I long ago accepted that I am Princess Leia. I have that as a large part of the association with my identity. There wasnít a lot of hesitation."

** This wasn't the first time Hamill's done that - his appearance on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' had him crash-land as Luke Skywalker, and insist on fetching his "[[UncannyFamilyResemblance cousin]]" Mark Hamill whenever he was asked to perform in a sketch

* A tragic music example is Denise Matthews, the pastor [[Music/PrincesAssociates formerly known as Vanity]], a pop singer infamous for her hedonism. When a near-fatal drug overdose left her comatose in 1995, she claimed to have seen Jesus, who said he would save her if she gave up her Vanity act. Upon waking up, she immediately left show business and dedicated the rest of her life to evangelical Christianity, even refusing to collect the royalty payments from her [[OldShame previous albums and movies]]. She sadly passed away in 2016 due to mounting health problems stemming from her OD, and worse, all the media headlines were "Vanity dead at 57," the exact kind of attention she DIDN'T want.

** Creator/TomBaker will forever be seen as the fourth Doctor no matter how much he wants not to (and he really, ''really'' doesn't want to). After playing the role he spent several decades only able to play crazy {{Large Ham}}s or spooky, otherworldly geniuses, or as characters who directly inspired the Doctor's character (Sherlock Holmes, Oscar Wilde, etc). He also came under pressure to perform these roles in the style of the Doctor ("in all but whipping out a Sonic Screwdriver"), because this was all people wanted to see him do. Before he took the part he was considered unusually talented and was winning awards for being an up-and-coming star. After he left the part, he was (in the words of Creator/StevenMoffat) "a mad, sad, bad old ham locked away safely in a voiceover booth".
In fact, this applies to most of the actors who have played the title role, with the exception of Paul [=McGann=] and Creator/ChristopherEccleston, who both played the Doctor for very short periods, and Creator/PeterDavison, who had another starring role in ''Series/AllCreaturesGreatAndSmall'' at the same time, and has had a varied career since, thanks in part to taking Patrick Troughton's (Doctor #2) advice to leave the role after 3 seasons. Creator/DavidTennant seemed to be purposely doing a varied amount of side roles in other works in order to avoid this, despite the fact he was essentially [[PromotedFanboy living out his childhood dream of playing the Doctor]] - when the show took a break of sorts in 2009 he played Theatre/{{Hamlet}}.[[note]]Contrary to popular belief, the show didn't take a break so that he could play ''Hamlet''; it did so to ease the change of production teams in 2010 and Tennant simply put the massive gap to good use.[[/note]]

Late in his life, with short, wavy white hair and ''Doctor Who'' remembered only by TV nostalgia shows and hardcore SF anoraks, he was able to get non-{{Expy}} roles in soap operas and sitcoms that allowed him to act in a different style, but interviews suggest he has a certain amount of bitterness over being forced to waste his talent simply because he was very good in one part.

* ''Series/BojackHorseman'' stars professional actor [=BoJack=] Horseman, who is only known as "the Horse from ''Horsin' Around''", a TastesLikeDiabetes 90s sitcom about a horse that looks after some orphans. Series 3 reveals that in 2007 he attempted PlayingAgainstType as an "[[DarkerAndEdgier edgy]]" character whose EstablishingCharacterMoment is a scene where he literally takes a dump on a VHS copy of ''Horsin' Around'' while shouting "wazzup, bitches!", but this was hugely unsuccessful and he regards it as an OldShame.
