11 Celebrities Who Went Off the Radar and Then Made a Triumphant Return

8 months ago

Reaching the zenith of fame and maintaining that position is incredibly challenging, as is evident from the lives of actors and actresses. A brief hiatus from the film industry often leads to the public forgetting them, but fortunately, some celebrities manage to make a resounding comeback, shining brighter than ever.

Brendan Fraser

Brendan was one of the brightest stars of the 90s in Hollywood. However, in 2008, he virtually disappeared off the radar. He returned to the screens almost two decades later, taking on the lead role in the movie Whale. When the film was screened at the Venice Film Festival in September 2022, Fraser received a six-minute standing ovation, which left him visibly emotional.

Lindsay Lohan

The star of romcoms from the 2000s, Lindsay Lohan, has been mainly appearing in TV series recently. She also starred in a horror movie that wasn’t that successful among the public. Now the actress has decided to go back to the genre that made her famous. In 2022, the film Falling for Christmas was released, where the star played the lead role.

Taylor Lautner

Taylor Lautner got extremely popular thanks to The Twilight Saga franchise where he played the werewolf guy named Jacob. However, since then we haven’t heard much from the actor because he wasn’t there on the big screen for a long time. Luckily, his break is over now. In 2022, we saw Lautner in one of the main roles in the movie Home Team.

Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty became famous thanks to Beverly Hills, 90210, and Charmed. Recently the actress hasn’t been a frequent guest in bright movie projects because she had been fighting a serious disease. The fight continues today too but Shannen decided to get back to the big screen. In Dec 2021, the movie Fortress, where she starred together with Bruce Willis, was released.

Courteney Cox

We haven’t seen Courteney Cox in feature movies since 2016. In 2022, a reboot of the legendary franchise Scream was released, where the star returned to her role. A sixth Scream film is expected to be released in 2023.

Jack Gleeson

When the plotline for the character named Joffrey, in Game of Thrones, was over, the actor stopped his work for about 6 years. But apparently, he’s decided to conquer the hearts of the audience again. In 2021, the movie Rebecca’s Boyfriend starring Jack was released in Ireland. We also hope to see him in some big Hollywood projects too.

Nina Dobrev

The star of the series The Vampire Diaries decided to remind the public about herself by playing the main role in the Netflix romantic comedy, Love Hard. The film is imbued with a Christmas atmosphere, and there is every reason to believe that the movie will have a firm place among those films that we love to watch so much during the winter holidays.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker didn’t disappear from the big screen after the end of Sex and the City, which became an important stage in her career growth. But her following work could hardly be compared with the image of Carrie Bradshaw. In 2021, Parker made the whole world talk about her again by playing the same character in And Just Like That... In 2022, we saw the return of the cult childhood comedy Hocus Pocus 2, where the star played a witch.

Megan Fox

It might seem like people have already forgotten about the star of Transformers and Jennifer´s Body by the 2020s but Megan decided to put herself out there again. In 2021, fans started discussing the actress’s extravagant outfits she was posing in for photographers. In 2022, she starred in the film Big Gold Brick together with Oscar Isaac.

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst hasn’t appeared in feature films for about 4 years. It can be assumed that the actress decided to devote more time to her family because in 2017 she got married. Luckily, in 2021, Kirsten made a comeback to the big screen. She played in The Power of the Dog with Benedict Cumberbatch as her on-screen partner.

Winona Ryder

After the scandal in 2002, when Winona Ryder was caught attempting a major theft in a Beverly Hills store, it seemed that the actress’s career was over. However, everything changed with the release of the series Stranger Things, where she played one of the central characters

And here’s how the actors who starred in the cult series Game of Thrones have changed since the first episode and now.
