Nalyze the career and star persona of a contemporary movie star
You are to analyze the career and star persona of a contemporary movie performer
in an essay. You should include the biographical basics, especially as they pertain to the career, but the main thrust should be an examination of the performers star persona and how it has been maintained or altered over the course of the career, both onscreen and in the public eye. A familiarity with the key films (or as many as you can realistically see) is assumed; if you can root your observations about the persona in specific roles or even scenes, so much the better.
The important thing is that you address the qualities and roles that gave the
actor a distinctive personality in the larger pop sphere and consider what sort
of cultural narratives they acted out in their performances and personality.
