Tell Us About The Actor You Never Looked At The Same After Seeing Them Play THAT Role

You know the one.

Every once in a while an actor plays a role a little TOO well, and they're forever ingrained in your brain as THAT character.

So, with that in mind, what role did an actor play so well you now permanently can't unsee them as that character, no matter how many other roles they've played?

Maybe Jake Gyllenhaal's performance in Nightcrawler (2014) left you unable to look at the rest of his filmography without being a little unnerved.

Or perhaps Lupita Nyong'o absolutely terrified you in Us (2019), and now you can't unhear her terrifying voice.

Heck, maybe you can't enjoy a Marvel movie because every time Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange is on screen, you can't help but remember his creepy-as-all-heck performance in Atonement (2007).
