A successful actor's / actress's career would be long, and so they would obviously portray a large number of characters. However there will be a few roles that are often associated with the actor itself, and at times the public recognizes them via those roles and in fact the the role that they are remembered for irrrespective of other roles. They can be a Star-Making Role or a Star-Derailing Role, or one that was a Career Resurrection after the latter.
