Side-By-Side Pics Of Characters People “Refuse To Believe” Are Played By The Same Actors

In Hollywood, there’s plenty of parallel universes, with each movie having its own (little) world. However, whether we’re talking about a ship crossing the Atlantic or a dystopian Chicago, these places need inhabitants too. Otherwise, we just wouldn’t care about them.

So actors cross these boundaries, assuming different identities with each leap into a new setting. And some of their transformations are so radical, it’s hard to even realize the same person is behind them.

Inspired by  Lindsey Nielson , TikTok users started to point out which characters they refuse to believe are played by the same actor, so we decided to build upon this interesting idea and expand it into a list!

1. Sirius Black From Harry Potter And Zorg From Fifth Element

Lindsey said she was just lying around watching TV and scrolling through TikTok when she saw  @Juliana.eliz  share a video on Zooey Deschanel between her two characters as Jess from New Girl and Jovie from Elf. “The first thing that came to my mind was Catherine O’Hara. During Christmas, I watched a lot of Home Alone and had just finished Schitt’s Creek and surprisingly didn’t put two and two together ’til I decided to look up the cast and that’s when I realized and my mind was blown! And thought so would everyone else’s if I make this and so it did!” said she.

“I absolutely love the actress Catherine O’Hara which is why I was so ashamed when I didn’t realize this sooner,” Lindsey added. “I love her roles in Nightmare before Christmas (Sally, Shock) and Beetlejuice (Delia Deetz) and so many more!”

Of course, the visuals are just part of a viral TikTok and this trend may have not started if it wasn’t for the perfect audio track too. “I chose that particular song because it seemed to pair well with the introduction and then the beat drop for the climax when finding out the two characters as  @Juliana.eliz  did as well!” Lindsey explained why she settled on a remix of Roisin Murphy’s – Rama Lama (Bang Bang).

As for the actors, I think they definitely would appreciate getting featured in one of these TikToks. “I think that’s what all actors want, to show as much versatility as they can, and do as many different kinds of things as they can,” Daniel Radcliffe  said in one interview , and I think he was speaking for all of his colleagues!
