WHAT A CHARACTER! Monday posts

Happy Monday! It’s difficult to believe it’s already Day 3 of the WHAT A CHARACTER! blogathon.

The WAC blogathon, hosted by myself, Kellee of Outspoken and Freckled, and Aurora of Once Upon A Screen, is our tribute to those supporting players who manage to steal nearly every scene of the classic movie they’re in, but didn’t always get their due in terms of fame, money, or awards.

Although most never played leading roles, we look forward to their appearances — as the butler, the maid, the hotel manager, or the ever-loyal best friend — almost as much as those of the major stars, or in some cases, even more. Today’s posts honor the following lesser-known, but well-loved, thespians:

    1. Thanks Kellee! I think it worked out great, so many awesome posts about these really unsung actors. Hope everyone got some ideas for blogs to follow 🙂
