Hollywood may sound like a great place to be with all the fame and glamour, but only if the star was fortunate enough to score a breakthrough role that shaped his career.

Fortunately for us, they were saved with last minute casting! Here are nine well-known actors and actresses who almost abandoned their employment before they became famous.
This sporty, feisty star had been through plenty before she was eventually remembered by Hollywood. Looking at Gal Gadot, it’s hard to imagine that this beautiful actress should not be thrown aside by anyone. Once she won Miss Israel’s title and served with the Israeli Defense Force, the biggest challenge to her was Hollywood. She thought she had enough after several refusals, but then Jack Snyder asked her to a secret audition and Gal Gadot eventually took on the part of Wonder Woman!
Do you see such a stunning and skilled actor stood on the verge of quitting acting? This, however, is true! Henry Cavill got so many denials that eventually he decided to join the force. Then, happily, Superman had come along and changed his life for good. And we now have the ability to enjoy his talent in The Witcher, too.

He suffered a great deal at the outset of his career to find a respectable place to play. His first major breakthrough was with the Alias TV series but his post-production involvement was significantly reduced. Bradley Cooper was struggling with depression at the time, and was talking seriously about calling it a break.

While she was just 8 years old she played Hermione, spending all her youth and teen years on and off screen sets. The actress admitted she was sick of such lifestyle and deeply worried about giving up acting.

Danes Homeland Star has been attempting to find a spot for two disastrous years.

Johansson Scarlett Johansson may be one of the most famous actors in Hollywood but as a young woman in the industry she has had a tough time. She spoke about leaving acting in her teens, even though it was her biggest joy.

Hemsworth Nowadays, everybody likes Chris Hemsworth and thinks he’s a brilliant star but he suffered with those minor parts earlier in the day, not realizing what’s going to happen next. Following a small part in Star Trek in 2009, Chris Hemsworth had an eight-month period where he couldn’t play any major role. It cost him a fee, as he kept going from audition to audition, but without any performance. Ultimately, he decided it was time to leave everything and go back to Australia, but one more time he went to another audition. For The Cabin in the Woods it was an audition and he played the part! He then joined Red Dawn and eventually became the leading man of Thor-a film that characterized his reputation for years to come.
