There are people so talented that they are able to grasp everything on the fly. Therefore, they do not need special education. There are such people in the acting environment.
Tom Cruise – a priest who became an actor
Tom’s debut took place in a school production presented at the drama festival. Both teachers and the jury highly appreciated it. But Tom Cruise’s career began later. First, he managed to be a Catholic priest and then moved into New York. There a future star performed his first role in the movie. It happened in 1981 in the film «Endless Love». And he became famous after playing in «Risky business» movie.
Christian Bale – started his career in commercial films
The future star of «The Dark Knight» began acting early – at the age of 9. At the age of 10, he played a role in the «Botanist» performance.
When Bale graduated from high school at the age of 16, he did not go to college and continued to make a living by shooting in advertising.
Interestingly, his first full-length film was «Mio, my Mio», which was directed by USSR film director Vladimir Grammatikov in 1987. But this role did not bring him much fame. Bale gained popularity after the release of «American psycho», in which he played a major role. And the trilogy of «The Dark Knight» ascended him over the top.
