Only if, there was an Oscar for this as well.
While watching the film or television series, we often forget that the characters we are stormed by are indeed the actors who’re playing the role.
It’s amazing to see how costumes and aura created in the scene transform the artist into something which isn’t real life. The production and direction team even uses prosthetics expert to make actors appear older or younger than he/she is.
In the entire process, actors transform themselves so well into the scene that it becomes hard to guess what could be their real age. We all have celebrities walking the red carpet on awards night, but how many of them looked the same in the film/tv show?
