Some actors were born to play a role. With stunning performances, these stars captivate us, move us, and leave us with an enormous impression, even after the end of a film.

These photos were taken for Empire Magazine’s 20th birthday issue. They gathered some of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars and photographed them in a role that brought out the very best in them. Here are some of my favorite shots.
