Default Actors with Scars on their faces.

One thing that seems strange to me is when I see an actor in a major role on TV with a pronounced scar on their face.

At one point you'd never see that, but now you see people with major scars on their faces getting major roles, and not just "thug" or "criminal" type roles.

Off the top of my head, I can think of THREE actors on TV that have major scars on their face.

This guy from Sons of Anarchy, and I've seen him in other things too, just can't think of what it is.



Michael K. Williams, who first rose to fame on TV in HBO's "The Wire" as street enforcer Omar. He also has starred in the show The Philanthropist as Teddy Rist's bodyguard.



And Callan Mulvey, and Australian actor who was nearly killed in a car crash, and had to have facial reconstructive surgery, leaving a scar on the left side of his chin, and the loss of vision in one eye.. He stars on the Australian cop show "Rush"



Any others that you can think of?

I recognize the first guy too; his name is Tommy Flanagan, and he's been in "Gladiator," "Alien vs Predator," "Charlie's Angels Full Throttle," "Attila," "Face/Off," "Braveheart," and many other movies I've never seen before. Apparently he was in "Sin City" as well, but I don't remember seeing him in there.

He was on an episode of 24 Last season.

Think he was an Irish militant with some other guys who tried taking out Clive Owens character.

Neither of these scars come even close to being as major as the other ones posted, but the first two actors that popped into my head when I saw the name of the thread are Joaquin Phoenix and Harrison Ford.

I thought of Humphrey Bogart and Steve Buscemi.

Don't know any TV actors though.

#facepalm to everyone in this thread (myself included).

The only person someone has posted up that even remotely comes close to what I was asking in the 1st post, is Joaquin Phoenix.

Tina Fey???? SERIOUSLY????

You asked for Actors with scars on their face. Tine Fey has a scar on her face and it is rather pronounced, so you tell me what the problem with posting her on here is, she is a bigger star than any of three you posted in your first post.

I honestly don't see a scar on her face. I'll go look through google images, but the point of the thread was sort of a "actors who have major pronounced scars on their faces" type deal.

not a life changing thread, sure, but who cares, it's all in fun.

Seriously though, I don't see any scars on her face and I never have noticed that.

But if she DOES, it can't possibly be anything remotely approaching the three first two I posted.

It is actually a very bad scar. But she wears a lot of makeup to cover it up. It is on her left side of her face from the corner of her mouth and onto her cheek. Similar to Flanagan's but not as bad.

No harm though as you said it is just a thread.

His name is Tommy Flannagen (check the url of the image you posted). He was also in Gladiator as Maximus's 'assistant'.

Hey Groo, just saw this older thread and thought I'd weigh in. Tina does have a fairly pronounced scar and when I watched SNL regularly I would always notice it. Its not as bad as Tommy's cause his is on both sides and deeper but looking at this photo you can clearly see it. It really stands out in Hi-Def though.

Quote:
Since shooting to fame and winning Emmys as the star and creator of 30 Rock, Tina Fey has remained quiet about the dramatic story behind the faint scar that lines that left side of her face.

"It's impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it," Fey, 38, tells Vanity Fair in its January issue.

But when she was 5, the future TV star was playing in the front yard of her Upper Darby, Penn., home when a stranger approached the young Fey and violently cut her cheek.

"She just thought somebody marked her with a pen," says her husband, Jeff Richmond.
And not on her face but Catherina Zeta has a rather significant cut on her throat due to a childhood tracheotomy.
Quote:
I wasn't really posh, no. I went to a little private school, but that's only because I was quite ill as a kid. I'd missed a lot of school because I had a tracheotomy, where they have to stab your throat to make you breathe - I've still got the scar.

Seal - whose scars were cause by a form of Lupus.

Mariska Hargitay - who was in the backseat of the car during the crash which killed her mother Jayne Mansfield. She hides the facial scar with her hair.

As for Tina Fey... her face was slashed by a teenager when she was 5 years old. The scar is hard to miss. http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwik..._Shankbone.jpg

Others that come to mind for me are Jeffrey Donovan from Burn Notice, Jennifer Runyon from Charles In Charge, Diane Lane and Mark Hammill.

They actually wrote Donovan's scar into the show of "Touching Evil", where his character got shot in the forehead.

I remember him saying in an interview that he got it because his brother threw a toy truck and hit him in the head as a kid.

[Show spoiler]James Woods....probably not the type of scars you were referring to, but they're scars, nonetheless.
