Which Actors Have Totally, Shockingly Different Vibes Than The Character They Play?

I will never forget hearing Stephanie Beatriz's real voice for the first time.

TV and movie lovers of the BuzzFeed Community, I have a question for you!

Have you ever watched a TV show or movie where an actor plays a character soooo convincingly, you were shocked when you saw them for the first time outside of it?

I'll start. I was totally floored when I first heard Stephanie Beatriz's real voice after only having watched her play Rosa Diaz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Hear me out: I know she's an ~actor~, but Rosa Diaz is so edgy and her voice is so deep, I was 100% not expecting Stephanie's sweet, high voice and bubbly personality the first time I saw her in an interview outside of the show. It was wild!

I've heard people say similar things about Tom Hiddleston and his iconic Marvel character, Loki, too.

Tom comes across as such a polite, kind person in interviews, which is basically the polar opposite of the chaos that is Loki.
