Give me your regional celebrities!

If you are interested in this topic the Initiative staff recommends that you start a new topic as there hasn't been a post in it in 783 days.

Recommended Posts

Our aim at The Initiative is to have a diverse amount of play bys in our gallery and icons, so to help with this I'm asking you to post a list of regional celebrities - what do I mean? Celebrities that are from your specific country or region. These could be actors from regional tv shows or soap operas, models, tv presenters, sports personalities/athletes, musicians.. and so forth. You can post as many or as little as you like, whenever you want but they must be from your home country/state. Post names, images or links.. I can look them up easily enough :)

 

Thanks! <3

We have lots of Romanian singers and actors... just that I don't know how to start in giving you what you need. (Yes, I am known to get blocked by wide requests, and by "anything"!) I need it narrowed down, even if in several different perspectives.

Actors? Singers? For modern day settings? For historical settings? Or should I tell you about the less known playbys I use for characters and NPCs, who aren't all Romanian but not many known in the RPG world (because I like using deceased playbys, from years ago movies).

So, this is a really good idea! Danish actors aren't typically the most widely known, so while you might have a little trouble finding good images of them, I will almost guarantee you that they're free on whatever site you need them for! After their name is the year they were born. Also taking a page out of @Hatter's_Delight's book and listing something they've done.

Sweden can proudly claim the whole Skarsgård clan: StellanAlexander, Gustaf, and Bill. That's not all of them, but all of them that have been in enough pictures that you could probably find something decent to use.

 

Although she's lived a little bit of everywhere, Noomi Rapace.

 

There's also Peter Stormare, your friendly local Swede who fulfills all your Russian bad guy needs. Also popular for the same role is Michael Nyqvist (who is in seriously every single Swedish movie I've ever seen, jfc).

 

Very locally, we have Carina Perenkranz and Pernilla Parszyk, who are known for an act called Judit och Judit (Judith and Judith), where they dress up as twins and do all manner of silliness. They're featured especially in commercials for a Swedish internet company called Com Hem. A few years ago they gave us this fabulous commercial:

 

Among the deceased is Greta Garbo, who was a famous silent movie actress the world fell in love with once talkies became a thing due to her deep and husky voice. After one of her movies flopped, she decided to quit while she was at the top of her game. 

 

And perhaps the most famous Swede of all is Felix Kjellberg... also known as PewDiePie.
