It must be difficult being an actor or an actress. You put yourself out there time and time again, only for people whove done nothing more than sit on their arses with a handful of popcorn to judge you without mercy. Not only are they judged for their performances, but for their choice of role, their look, their off-screen presence. Its not a lifestyle many could handle, so even the shittiest actor really deserves at least a modicum of respect. But were a fickle bunch, and we get bored easily. I imagine the pressure of keeping us satisfied is quite immense. It cant be easy to go back out there year after year, decade after decade, and still keep that initial spark that got you plucked from obscurity - often an actor who excelled in one decade may fail entirely in the next, and mercilessly, well usually just forget about them and move on. I decided to take a look back at the decade in which I grew up, in which I developed my love of cinema: the 1990s. The age of denim, girl and boy bands and white-boy dreadlocks, the 90s wasnt exactly the classiest of decades. But there were some actors that worked throughout the 90s who committed some fantastic performances to the annals of cinema history only to be chewed up and spat out by the noughties, sometimes never to be seen again. Its unfortunate when it happens, but it happens more often than you might think. So, we toast those 90s legends, who for one reason or another, struggled to thrive in post-Millennium cinemas.
