List of characters played by multiple actors in the same film

This is a list of characters who have been played by multiple actors in the same film. This does not include:

  • Stunt doubles/body doubles
  • Infants or very young children played by twins (Nearly all children below a certain age are played by twins in order to adhere to child labor laws.)
  • Actors playing a younger/older version of a character in a brief flash-back/flash-forward (However, actors who play the same character at different ages for an extended portion of the movie may be included).
  • Large puppets or animatronic characters controlled by multiple performers
  • Characters with shape-shifting abilities who are almost always played by one actor except when using their abilities. (e.g. The T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day or Mystique from the X-Men Trilogy) Exceptions may be made for characters for whom there is no one "default" actor.

Shih's English was very poor, so actor Keye Luke supplied his speaking voice.
Schwarzenegger was cast based on his appearance, but the producers were initially unaware of his thick Austrian accent, and dubbed over his voice with a more classical voice actor. Some modern screenings of this have restored Schwarzenegger's voice to the film.

I

After the death of Heath Ledger one-third of the way through filming, production was shut down for a few months. Then it was re-started when the three actors agreed to complete Ledger's role.

L

Spilsbury had the look, but his voice couldn't cut it. So, his lines were dubbed over by Keach.
