Was something lost in translation?What did these historical foreign actors look like in their prime vs. decades later? The movie industry extends way beyond Hollywood, and all of the actors in this article were born outside of the United States. Some of these international stars were content for fame in their native lands, but some starred in U.S. films and even became naturalized citizens. You probably recognize them from their heyday, but do you know what they looked like decades later? Scottish actor Sean Connery's last big-screen role was in 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and he now makes very few public appearances. British-Irish stage and film actor Peter O'Toole, who played T. E. Lawrence in Lawrence of Arabia, holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations without a win. Italian actress Sophia Loren became the first woman to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance in Two Women. German actress Marlene Dietrich held both German and American citizenship. Canadian actor Christopher Plummer played Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music and won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in 2011's Beginners, which made him, at 82, the oldest actor to win an Academy Award.
Other historical foreign actors you'll see pictures of decades after their heyday include Ann-Margret, Ingrid Bergman, Catherine Deneuve, Roger Moore, Bela Lugosi, Ian McKellen, Maggie Smith, Charlie Chaplin, Omar Sharif, Marcello Mastroianni and many more.
