Whether it's John Wayne in The Searchers or Anthony Hopkins in Silence Of The Lambs, great actors are sometimes lucky enough to play a character who they seem to truly embody. While it doesn't happen very often, when it does it's something to behold and reminds you just how magical movies can be. All actors strive towards that iconic role which will secure their place as one of the greatest performers in the history of cinema, but few manage to get a shot at pulling it off. Incredible screenplays are hardly falling out of the sky over Hollywood, and the result is that great actors often find themselves picking up work which doesn't reflect their innate ability as a performer.

From established character actors to rising stars fresh from breakthrough performances, here are ten amazing actors yet to realise their full potential.
