Random information on the term “Leading lady”:

A character actor is a supporting actor who plays unusual, interesting, or eccentric characters. The term, often contrasted with that of leading actor, is somewhat abstract and open to interpretation. In a literal sense, all actors can be considered character actors since they all play “characters”, but in the usual sense it is an actor who plays a distinctive and important supporting role.

A character actor may play characters who are very different from the actor’s off-screen real-life personality, while in another sense a character actor may be one who specializes in minor roles. In either case, character actor roles are more substantial than bit parts or non-speaking extras.

A character actor can also be the leading man in his films, such as Wallace Beery, whose major silent film career exploded during the sound era.

The term is used primarily to describe television and film actors. An early use of the term was in the 1883 edition of The Stage, which defined a character actor as “one who portrays individualities and eccentricities”. Actors with a long career history of playing character roles may be difficult for audiences to recognize as being the same actor.

Random information on the term “STAR”:

Star classification is a type of rating scale. It is used by reviewers for ranking things such as films, TV shows, restaurants, and hotels. For example, a system of one to five stars is commonly used in hotel ratings, with five stars being the highest rating.

Repeated symbols used for a ranking date to Mariana Starke’s 1820 guidebook, which used exclamation points to indicate works of art of special value:

…I have endeavored… to furnish Travellers with correct lists of the objects best worth notice…; at the same time marking, with one or more exclamation points (according to their merit), those works which are deemed peculiarly excellent.

Murray’s Handbooks for Travellers and then the Baedeker Guides (starting in 1844) borrowed this system, using stars instead of exclamation points, first for points of interest and later for hotels.

The Michelin restaurant guide introduced a star as a restaurant rating in 1926, which was expanded to a system of one to three stars in 1931.
