You can classify an actorâ€™s type using only one film as reference, but these categories are subject to change. Each new role helps to clarify or shift an actorâ€™s designation. Using specific examples from your chosen film, in your blog
- Identify three actors from your film and classify each according to the types of actors listed in your text.
- Explain your reasons for classifying the actors as you do. Use specific references to the film and pay special attention to how these decisions impacted characterization. Also, consider the impact of any realistic or stylized portrayals within the film.
- Focus on one of the actors youâ€™ve discussed. Based on other films the actor has been in, would this actor always be placed in the same category?

Provide evidence (references from other films, including film clips and stills) to support your argument.
