QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–442

A straightforward one, but may not be so easy for people beyond a certain demographic.


Shown above is the change in hairstyle of a very specific actor, of whom many legends abound. One, which I particularly like, it is said that in one of his roles, he was required to write a letter, and the situation demanded that it be in a very specific style that was as close to a certain periodic calligraphy as possible. Apparently, the director made him practise the style so much, that it changed his handwriting forever!

Years later, when I was still a cub reporter, I got the chance to meet him, and asked him how the incident had affected him. “It improved my handwriting,” he simply said.

Identify this actor.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
