15 Characters You Never Knew Were The Same Actor

When it comes to famous actors, we usually know everything about them, every movie they were in and everything they ate. The lesser-known actors don't get this same fan infatuation. They're the unloved ones, the background music. Even the most die-hard fans can only name a few of their roles. A further subset of this group are the relative unknowns. The only way that anyone would know these names is because they were obsessed with one of the movies these actors were in and they know everything about the film, like a Star Wars or Harry Potter or something of that ilk. They've seen the behind the scenes stuff and they've dissected the film so much they'll always remember the names. But this is rare. Yet, even though these actors might be a tad anonymous, they have had the opportunity to play well-known characters. Often, these characters are masked or costumed, otherwise we would know what they look like and who they are, right?

It seems that whenever a character is masked or wears costume makeup it makes the actor indistinguishable; we tend not to care about the actor underneath. It's not fair but it helps to keep them anonymous and allows for us to make a list like this. What happens when anonymous actors play more than one recognizable character? It's fun to note that the guy who played the Stay Puft Marshmallow in Ghostbusters also played Godzilla in Godzilla. Now, that's not true, of course, but how cool would it be if it were? We're not about to give away a freebie, so don't get hasty. Let's look at actors who actually have played multiple characters that we know and love. Here are 15 pairs of characters you never knew were played by the same actor.

1 Luke Goss - Jared Nomak and Prince Nuada

Luke Goss, for some reason, plays a lot of villains in film. He doesn't look evil, necessarily, but he seems to have a "look" about him that directors see as dark. His first big role was one of his most recognizable, that of Jared Nomak, the first and the leader of the Reapers, in Blade II. Considering he was completely unknown as an actor at the time and his makeup made him impossible to distinguish, it's no surprise that we didn't care to learn who the actor was. Years later in Hellboy II (he likes sequels), Goss returned to the makeup as Prince Nuada, the amazingly cool-looking Elf Prince set on destroying humankind. While it would be tough to know that it was Goss in both roles, in hindsight, the two characters do look alike.
