Collages of Famous People Portrayed by Different Actors

Portrayals of famous people have always been a staple of film and TV. In this fascinating series called Famous People in Fiction, Reddit user VictorVan assembles collages that show how famous historical and fictional figures have been portrayed on the big screen. In each image, the top half shows a photograph or artistic rendering of the famous person, while pictures and names of the different actors can be seen underneath.

Each character has physical characteristics that are instantly recognizable. Marilyn Monroe, for example, is an unmistakable blonde beauty in all depictions of her, while Albert Einstein is usually portrayed as an aging man with his iconic mustache and wild hair.

Looking at these collages and the many depictions of the same famous person, it’s clear that both filmmakers and viewers are drawn to works with these familiar faces. Our fascination with revisiting the same famous figures time and time again makes it clear that the biopic genre will never go out of style.
