6 epic skills actors have to master for the role

In this post, we'll be showing you instances where favorite actors were forced to learn a new skill in order to perform iconic roles – some of these are absolutely unbelievable!

Sometimes it's not uncommon to forget that even our charismatic TV stars need to get their skill-learning game on. It's not always a bed of roses and they often have to learn skills that they never had any prior knowledge of.

Playing such unfamiliar roles in movies is a huge responsibility and may even take years of practice and hard work before these actors are able to perfect their skills.

Which of these skills do you think was the hardest to learn? Are any of your favorite actors, films or series on the list? Tell us in the comments!

Allison Aspden, not so far fetched if when balancing on your toes you fall. I don't think I'd really want to be a ballerina as it us hard on the ties and feet in general.

I'm a lefty but l reckon learning new skills like playing tennis and the violin left handed when you are right handed must be particularly challenging

Many top actors do the hard yards! By the way I loved Dothraki in GOT 😃

Some of these claims appear a bit far-fetched. Like the claim re Natalie Portman & her multiple cracked ribs.

The hardest for me was the Game of Thrones language. When else would you ever use it?

🥺I didn’t know doing ballet can cause multiple ribs injuries. How about the legs and the feet??🙆‍♀️

Good on Streep for learning the guitar as many mime; check Sweet and Lowdown to see Sean Penn miming quite badly as Gypsy Jazz guitarist. Good movie though in spite of that.
