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!

For the Jack Reacher movies, Tom Cruise had to learn to be a foot taller.

Leticia Olsen, per my reply above...falling unexpectedly can easily cause cracked ribs. I'm sure she fell a lot with accelerated learning on pointe.

Allison Aspden, I have heard that in several articles in the past year. I'm sure she fell a lot learning to be on pointe. As skinny as she was, it wouldn't take much to crack a few ribs in an unexpected fall. No many years of pre point ballet to prepare her.

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?

Good for them! They got paid for what they learned.
