A lot depends on the cast in a movie: it often guarantees the quality of the film and attracts viewers who prefer to see their favorites on screen. However, despite the huge number of actors in the modern industry, we are not particularly surprised by their appearance on the screen: they are all familiar to us in one way or another.

But remember your surprise when your favorite musician or any other famous person unexpectedly appears in the film, even for a few moments! It seems that this movie has its own zest!

Stephen Hawking

How in a series about scientists, in “The Big Bang Theory,” a real scientist, and even a real one, might not appear! In 2012, in episode 21 of the fifth season, Sheldon quarreled with one of the smartest people on the planet.

John Towner Williams

The same composer who wrote the music for “Star Wars” (“Imperial March” and others), as well as many cult films such as “Schindler’s List”, “Jurassic Park” and “Harry Potter”. He played a bartender in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Sunrise" (2019). It was impossible not to immortalize such a person on the screen!

Charles III

The current king of Great Britain, then Prince Charles, starred as himself in an episode of the soap opera Coronation Street. On December 8, 2000, viewers were delighted with the unexpected appearance of a representative of the royal family, especially on the live broadcast of the anniversary episode.

Ian Brown

You definitely remember this fleeting episode in the film “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” (2004), because in addition to the self-rotating teaspoon, the famous rock musician and frontman of the group “The Stone Roses” is present in this frame. It's funny that in a movie about wizards, its bohemian hero reads Stephen Hawking's book on time.

Sarah Ferguson

In one of the episodes of the series "Friends" in 1998, the guys go to London, where Joey behaves like an exaggerated tourist, which his comrades reproach him for. But it is he who manages to accidentally meet Prince Andrew’s ex-wife and receive a compliment from her.

Peter Jackson

The famous New Zealand director made a surprise appearance in the action-comedy Hot Fuzz (2007). The fact is that one day Peter Jackson met director Edgar Wright, they struck up a conversation, and Peter himself offered to appear in Edgar’s new film. He couldn’t come up with anything better than to give him the role of the evil Santa.

Princess Beatrice

The granddaughter of Elizabeth II appeared in the film “The Young Victoria” (2009) as a maid of honor and was not even listed in the credits. But look how much happiness and excitement is on this face!

Iggy Pop

In addition to the surprise, fans of the legendary sci-fi were pleased that in a very dark episode of the series “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” the musician brought a bit of humor and surprised everyone with his excellent acting. This is not the only cameo of the series, but it is the most memorable.

Elizabeth II

It’s not clear who looks cooler: the Queen or James Bond? In 2012, the Summer Olympic Games were held in London, Elizabeth II was offered to star in a short skit that would open the games. Surprisingly, she immediately agreed. The plot was comical in nature, combining pink colors, dogs scurrying here and there, royal equanimity and attributes of James Bond films, played here by Daniel Craig.

Bonus: Princes William and Harry

The princes are devoted fans of the star saga. The brothers secretly filmed Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) as stormtroopers, but the episode never made it into the final cut. In addition, they were much taller than the rest of the castmates, which also prevented the royal cameo. But they definitely made every boy’s dream come true!
