Not all actors manage to break into Hollywood at a young age and settle there from their first attempt. Many of them have to do minor roles in movies and television for a long time and wait until their true success comes. This long-awaited moment comes at 32 for some and even later for others. Nevertheless, it brings the same big amount of joy as it does at an early age.
Melissa McCarthy, 50 years old
You might be familiar with Melissa McCarthy’s face if you watched the Gilmore Girls series. However, despite her long experience in the film industry, world fame didn’t come to the comedian/actress until the age of 41, when she starred in the movie Bridesmaids. Melissa’s role in it brought her an Oscar nomination and started a new whirl in her career.
Margo Martindale, 69 years old
Margo Martindale’s debut on the big screen took place in 1990. Within the first years of her career, she had small roles on television and in movies. Finally, in the year 2004, Margo’s name became world-famous after she was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in the play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. At that moment the actress was 53 years old. After that success, filmmakers started to invite Martindale to movies with top-notch actors, as well as ask her to participate in serious projects. In 2011, Margo got an Emmy Award for the role of Mags Bennett in the crime series, Justified.
