Hollywood is full of outstanding actors and actresses who truly make you believe they are another person when you see them on the screen. Many of these actors are praised by millions of TV and movie fans for their work and often showered with awards. However, there are also some actors out there who don’t get nearly enough credit for the amazing work they do. Some of them have even appeared in critically acclaimed films and won awards, but still feel like they fit into the category of “underrated.”
This article will feature 10 people we feel are either worthy of more praise than they get, or are on the way to becoming much more famous than they already are — we’re talking about being a part of the true Hollywood elite. Some have been acting for a long time, while others are fairly new to the scene, either way, these individuals should be much more famous than they currently are. And they probably will be before too long.
10. Gina Torres
Torres has been around for over 20 years in the film and television industry, but still hasn’t turned into the leading lady that many thought she would. You would likely known Gina Torres best for her roles in TV shows such as Suits, Alias, Hannibal and many more. She has also appeared in many great action films and in the early 2000s, and she looked like she could be the next big female action star. Unfortunately, the roles just never came and she never became the household name that we feel she is talented enough to be. She plays a powerful woman arguably better than anyone else on the planet and still gets some roles and some appreciation, but not as much as we feel she deserves.
