What I like to do is see how someone might manage two very different roles, especially if one of those roles is for a character in a period piece. So, this picspam is going to contrast the period and modern roles of 20 actors/actresses from various countries. Although the costumes and hair immediately come to mind, I also tried to look at other aspects, such as cultural norms and body language, that might have required the actor/actress to approach the roles differently. Hope you enjoy!

I enjoyed very much!

And as someone who watches TVD, those photos of Nina Dobrev remind me of how much sexier and more interesting Katherine is than Elena (imho). Part of it's the hair, part of it's the saccharine, sociopathic attitude.

Duuuude I never knew that Zoe Saldana was also Anamaria in POTC! My mind is blown. And mmm James McAvoy in period attire...I'm digging it.

You can tell how much toning everyone had to do in Dhoom 2 from that picture of Sunehri, it's crazy!

Haha I forgot until right this very second that Zoe Saldana's character in The Terminal was a Trekkie. XD

Awesome idea for a picspam, and I loved the choices you picked, too. :) Some people were just born to be in period films, I think. Keira Knightley is one of them.

A+ for Aamir Khan and Kate Winslet. Such stunning, versatile actors

Also, I had NO idea Zoe Saldana was the Anamaria from PotC

EEEEEEE *TACKLEGLOMPS* So much LOVE for this - especially starting out with bollywood and Aamir Khan and Lagaan (\o/) But beautifully balanced coverage of both TV & cinema as well as asian and western actors.

Have to admit that Jang Geun Seok's wig in Hong Gil Dong was pretty terrible XD And seeing the picture of Eita in Atsu-hime had me going "WHAT HAPPENED TO MINE'S HAIR D: D:" lolol

wow, this picspam is amazing!

I love your idea of comparing time periods between the same actors.

It's great to see how much the image and vibe change when they're representing different characters in different eras.

lovely <3

I've always been slightly more partial to Aamir's look in Lagaan. Hehe.
