There’s a reason why the most successful films and franchises have stood the test of time: the iconic characters. As reboots and remakes have continued to remain popular, and perhaps even grown in popularity, that means new actors taking on these timeless roles of the characters that we all know and love. Here are some of the most beloved characters that have been portrayed by different actors over the years. Which ones are your favorite?
The first live action Wonder Woman was portrayed by Ellie Wood Walker, and it was just 5 minutes long! Without a doubt, Lynda Carter made this role truly iconic from 1975 until 1979. Now, Gal Gadot has brought Wonder Woman back to prominence, starring in the role in the 2017 Wonder Woman film.
The iconic role of Sarah Connor in the Terminator film franchise was first brought to life by actress Linda Hamilton. The character was later portrayed by two Game of Thrones leads: Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke, as well as actress Willa Taylor. Hamilton later reprised the role in 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate.
