15 Actors Who Disappeared And You Forgot They Existed

There are many stars in Hollywood who have hugely successful careers, some that even span for decades. These actors appear in movie hit after movie hit and their career goes from strong to stronger. However, this is not always the case. Often times, a star rises to fame but falls away just as quickly. What’s strange is that some of these stars are extremely famous, but only for a short period of time. These actors look as though they are set to take off and we imagine that they will be around for many years to come. For reasons that are often unknown, they cannot make their success last. Due to this, we are left to ponder what exactly went wrong for these actors.

This list may remind you of an actor you once loved but haven’t thought about in a long time. Sometimes, we don’t even notice these stars fading away; it happens so gradually that it more often than not goes completely unnoticed. Other times these stars are replaced by new actors that demand our attention and we forget about the old ones. This list will likely leave you confused and puzzled as to how these disappearances happened, and more importantly how you didn’t even notice…

4 Freddie Prinze Jr.

3 Alicia Silverstone

2 Taylor Lautner

1 Rupert Grint

There is no doubt that Rupert Grint had huge success with his role as Ron Weasley in the much loved Harry Potter franchise. When he was just a teenager, the star had gained the level of fame and recognition that many actor’s chase throughout their entire career. Then, since the conclusion of the magic franchise in 2011, Grint all but disappeared. The actor has taken on a couple of smaller roles in Indy movies but nothing that has gained much attention. This may be surprising, since Grint is very clearly a capable and talented actor. Unlike his co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, Grint has not yet made a name for himself separate from Ron Weasley.
