* Art Parkinson's most famous role is Rickon Stark in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', where he was infamously given almost nothing to do across the four seasons he appeared in. This caused some fans to wonder if this meant the crew was disappointed in his acting skills, but his performance in ''WesternAnimation/KuboAndTheTwoStrings'' definitely shows he has real chops.

* ColinFirth was known primarily for being a cute British guy in some fluffy romantic comedies, but then he was cast as [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor George VI]] in ''Film/TheKingsSpeech'', and nails a performance of a man who is both unprepared for the Crown and never wanted the job to begin with. His friendship with his speech therapist is wonderfully heartwarming, but the scene in which he [[TheWoobie breaks into tears]] with his wife, under the pressure of TheChainsOfCommanding, are what shows he deserved that Oscar. He also received much critical praise only the year before for ''Literature/ASingleMan'', where his portrayal of a man's grief following the death of his lover was wonderfully sensitive and understated, showing a greater depth to Firth that had not yet been seen.

* Gary Busey: He didn't garner an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor (for ''Film/TheBuddyHollyStory'') for nothing. (I mean, the guy practically ''was'' {{Buddy Holly}}, similar to how Creator/JoaquinPhoenix became [[JohnnyCash The Man in Black]].)

** Additionally, Lelouch Lamperouge in ''CodeGeass''. I have never seen anyone pull off such insanely dramatic laughs, as well as absolutely heartbreaking and magnificently awesome lines in my entire life. Quite a few people may prefer him over Jun Fukuyama.

** Even Dear John. Watch the scene where he's reading the letter to his father [[spoiler: who dies while he's reading it]] and try not to cry

** Rebecca Mader usually just had to show up, be rather hammy and throw in a few trolling comments as Zelena. But in the second half of Season 5 during her romance with Hades, and particularly in the episode "Sisters" she shows Zelena's HiddenDepths and turns in a very genuine performance.

** Kazumi Evans is best known as the NonSingingVoice for Rarity and Princess Luna, and she had her first in-series speaking roles as the deliciously evil Adagio Dazzle and the cultured-to-a-fault Octavia Melody in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]''. But her heartwrenching [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech outburst]] and [[BrokenTears emotional breakdown]] as Moondancer prove her talents go well beyond singing and hamming it up.
** While Kathleen Barr does a great LargeHam as Trixie and Chrysalis, the deeper characterization afforded Trixie in "No Second Prances" allow her to show a greater range as the character.

* Most people wrote Orlando Bloom off as worthless because of his [[MrFanservice popularity with]] [[UnfortunateImplications girls and women]] until his [[TakeThatMe self-deprecating]] appearance on an episode of ''Extras'' and his performance as a near-suicidal failed writer in the London play ''In Celebration.'' Fans could have told these people that all they needed to do was watch him in ''Ned Kelly'' or ''Haven'' to see what he can do. Or ''Film/Elizabethtown''.

* Creator/HenryCavill as Franchise/{{Superman}} in ''Film/ManOfSteel''. Although the movie got mixed reviews, his performance as Superman is universally considered one of the good things in the movie. All the more awesome since he gets to act alongside well-known actors such as Creator/KevinCostner, Creator/MichaelShannon and Creator/RussellCrowe.
* Not a whole lot of people remember that {{Charlize Theron}} was at first dismissed as yet another vacuous pretty face who was to be regarded as nothing more than a flash-in-the-pan screen ingenue who would fade away when she turned 30. Then she transformed herself into serial killer Aileen Wuornos in ''Film/{{Monster}}'' and jaws dropped across the land. Then she [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome won an Academy Award]] and people ''knew'' to take her seriously.

** Smith's casting as Deadshot in ''Film/SuicideSquad'' was met with skepticism, as many thought he would be unable to pull off a villainous, cynical anti-hero like Floyd Lawton. In the end, however, his performance was the most consistently praised element of the film.


Added DiffLines:

* Margot Robbie was also seen as a highlight of ''Suicide Squad'', with Bruce Timm feeling she nailed Harley's character.
