All movies, whether long or short, memorable or forgettable, count with the same element: a cast of actors to bring them to life. The film industry has had hundreds of them since its beginnings: from the days of "Gone with the Wind," "Sunset Boulevard," "A Street Car Named Desire," "Psycho," the era where "A galaxy far, far, away," became a phenomenon," to the current movie trends of superhero anthologies, horror film franchises, and coming-of-age film adaptions; all movies become a reality due to the actors and actresses devoting their entire selves into their stories.
Some of these performers are selective, specifically concentrated on one or two specific genres, and others take-on whatever project comes their way. Some are on every tabloid, others are known for solely through their movies, heard about once a year at best, and others are just known because they're in a major motion picture every year. For movie buffs, their names are complementary to their starring movies.
