About Tom Ellis 

There is a huge difference in real life and reel life. Only a few people have the same nature in both films and in real life only to some extent. And when this happens you can see a more realistic performance as one doesn’t have to do a lot of effort to adapt to the character. In contrast to that, some actors adapt the characters which are just opposite to real life. These sorts of characters are challenges to actors and need great homework. But if the homework is done properly, the audience will surely have a wow reaction.

Likewise, these sorts of opposite characters is also an opportunity for an actor to become mature in acting. These types of roles are not only challenging but are a bit scary for those actors who follow method acting. Acting is just not about getting into the character properly but also getting out of it properly. And if one doesn’t know the right technique for entering and exiting out of such roles, it may create problems in their life for a long time.
