The Actors behind the Masks, Who played these famous roles?
Below are some of the popular characters in moves that we’ve all seen. Yet the actors behind these roles remain generally unknown. These are the actors behind the masks:
1. Darth Maul
Darth Maul, the one bad guys we would have loved to see more of. His role was played by Ray Park. You may also recognize him as Toad in X-Men, and Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
2. The Faun (Pan’s Labyrinth)
This movie turned out to be a cult classic, the role of the faun was played by Doug Jones. Some of his other films all include Hellboy II: The Golden Army and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
Played by Ron Perlman. Perlman must be quite used to layers of latex, seeing as hes also done three seasons of Beauty And The Beast.
How do you get a naked woman in a PG-13 movie? You paint her blue and put all kinds of latex layers on her. This role was played by none other than Super model Rebeca Romijn.
5. Michael Myers
Played by Tyler Mane. If you don’t know the movie, then you have a serious gap in your education. He also played Sabretooth in X-Men and Ajax in Troy.
6. Jason Voorhees
Played by Derek Mears. Some of his roles since then was the “Classic” Predator in the Movie Predator. In Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides he played Master-at-Arms, and in more recently roles in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Edward.
7. Darth Vader
If not the most viral and well known villian of all time, but do you know who played this role? Who was the man behind the mask? I doubt if anyone would have known who he was as the actors strolled down the red carpet.

Played by Bill nighy, we know him as playing Viktor in the Underworld film series.
