** ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'': Dominic Keating put a lot of effort into fleshing out the character of Malcolm Reed, viewing him as a lonely man who disproportionately magnifies the few emotional connections he's able to make, only to spend most of the first two seasons as "that stuffy British guy who gets [[TheWorfEffect Worfed]] all the time".

** Jolene Blalock was a self-described trekkie and studied Leonard Nimoy's performances as Spock and learned Vulcan to play T'Pol, even though as MsFanservice was stuffed into a ridiculous catsuit and often put into situations where she was stripped of it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SchittsCreek'': InUniverse, Moira Rose is cast as Dr. Beatrice Mandrake in ''The Crows Have Eyes III: The Crowening'' and takes it very seriously, even going so far as to rewrite her dialogue and making up a middle name for her character. Rathern that ridicule her for it, the show portrays this as an admirable trait since Moira is aware that this is likely the best she can do as an actress so she intends to do it well.

Added DiffLines:

* While working as The Shark of the Wrestling/DungeonOfDoom in Wrestling/{{WCW}} in 1996, Wrestling/JohnTenta sat for a 24-hour process to have his [[http://www.lsu.edu LSU Tigers]] tattoo turned into a shark. Not long after that, he stopped doing the gimmick.

Added DiffLines:

* While most critics have bashed ''Film/Hellboy2019'' as a whole, even those who disliked it have admitted that it's not because of Creator/DavidHarbour, who does his damnedest to save the movie from itself despite the immense pressure of having to follow up Creator/RonPerlman's beloved performance.


* ''Film/UniversalSoldierTheReturn'': Creator/MichaelJaiWhite as the primary villain SETH gives a genuinely earnest performance without going overboard (along with Van Damme, but he has DullSurprise in literally everything he's ever done). By contrast, Wrestling/BillGoldberg, who plays the secondary villain, is ChewingTheScenery the entire time.

Added DiffLines:

*''Film/SaloOrThe120DaysOfSodom'' was an inversion. Actress Hélène Surgère said that the mood on the set was actually rather jovial. The presence of teenagers, many of whom had never acted before, resulted in a lighthearted production process, including cast members playing practical jokes on each other. She added that the film was truly made in the editing room and that the filmmakers didn't realize how grim the film really was until it was completed.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/MichaelSheen as Aro is one of the most convincing portrayals of a human-eating monster in the series. His giddiness and HamAndCheese performance are completely in character and give off the feel of a serial killer.

Added DiffLines:

** "The Last of the Starks" took very little time to be labeled the worst episode of the series's run upon airing, for its contrived plotting, baffling developments, and character assassination. But Emilia Clarke largely repeated Stephen Dillane's feat, managing to sell Daenerys's utter grief and shock at the multiple DiabolusExMachina thrust upon her and making her far more sympathetic than was probably intended.


* Most of the cast in the [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]' dub of ''Anime/SonicX'' put a good amount of emotion into their lines. Especially Creator/LisaOrtiz as Amy Rose, despite not having much to do aside from being a {{Tsundere}}. Even then, when she was pissed, there was a lot of energy, and in rare moments like when she [[spoiler:finally sees Sonic again after waiting three years]] in the finale of season 2, her [[spoiler:crying love confession]] sounds genuinely sweet.

Added DiffLines:

* Out of the four ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' dubs that were localized by [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]], ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' had the [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Macekre absolute least amount of effort put into it]]. But the cast for the dub pulled a very great performance. Especially Bella Hudson as Aki, whose performance was more emotional than her Japanese voice by Ayumi kinoshita.

** Likewise, Creator/MikePollock as Dr. Eggman is also considered one of the best 4Kids castings for ''Sonic X''. When the Sonic characters were officially recasted again back in 2010, fans were pleased to know that Pollock was the only actor from the 4Kids cast that retained his role.

Added DiffLines:

** The actors in the GagDub ''WebVideo/BackstrokeOfTheWest'' deliver a genuinely solid, impressive, and serious performance, despite the [[WordSalad utter absurdity]] of the translation. NarmCharm at its finest.


** Evangelyne Lily herself hated Tauriel's [[RomanticPlotTumor incredibly tacked-on love triangle subplot]], but she still clearly tried her best with it. She ''almost'' manages to sell lines like "Why does it hurt so much?"
