With the miracles of special effects makeup and CGI, more and more often, actors are seemingly unrecognizable from the parts that they play. Think about It, the 2017 horror movie which had people falling in love with the terrifying clown villain, simply because he was played by total hottie Bill Skarsgard. The internet is no stranger to falling in love with unlikely figures - and this latest revelation has been no different.
As Game of Thrones approaches its end, the incredibly frightening Night King enjoyed a starring role in this week's episode (spoilers ahead!). As the leader of an evil army of death called the White Walkers, he descended on Winterfell and tried to take down the living army. Unfortunately for him, Arya Stark managed to ensure that he failed. But the actor who plays the villain has had another victory of sorts. The internet has seen his face, and it's safe to say they're impressed.
We're all pretty used to the magic of makeup.It's pretty incredible that with careful application of a few products, you can essentially look like a completely different person.
The truly skilled can produce some amazing results.Using a steady hand (and a bucketload of talent) some MUAs can trick the eyes and create living, breathing optical illusions.
And that's just in real life.When it comes to the screen, special effects teams can truly perform some visual magic, making us see things that we never thought we'd be able to witness.
It's all pretty spectacular.But there's no feeling that quite compares to seeing the behind the scenes footage of what people look like pre-makeup.
And this is particularly true when it comes to actors.In 2017, Bill Skarsgard starred in terrifically creepy horror remake It, as the titular evil clown.
But when we saw him without makeup...
