They stepped out to become ordinary human beings, but were destined to become something greater. Here is the list of stars who accidentally became actors.
15. Rosario Dawson
The backstory of this beautiful actress is short, devoid of real struggle, and is like a fantasy tale. Imagine that you are sitting at your house and some big shots come out of nowhere, and make you an offer you cannot refuse. Same thing happened with Dawson. At the age of 15, Dawson was sitting on the front porch, and discovered by photographer Larry Clark and his assistance Harmony Korine. Both of them were working on the 1995 movie ‘Kids’. This sudden discovery by them, landed Dawson in a supporting role, in the same movie.
14. Sharlto Copley
Becoming a helping hand to someone, actually pays you back. After completing high school, Copley began his career as a TV producer. During this time, he met Neil Blomkamp, whom he assisted by providing computers, as the latter used to work as a 3D animator. But as time passed by, the latter ended up becoming the director of the sci-fi hit ‘District 9’ (2009). And guess what! Blomkamp returned the favor by offering Copley his first lead role.
