Usually main characters in the movies get a lot of screen time, but some films deviate from the norm. Some trying to save them for the big reveal, others just to save a few million bucks of CGI and royalties. Whatever the reasons are, not all characters are created equally.
Here are 9 major characters that are barely seen in the movie.
1. Sauron in The Lord of the Rings
He’s in the first part for a brief moment, and then he’s basically an unseen presence throughout the trilogy. The same footage of the Eye of Sauron doesn’t count.
2. Darth Vader in Star Wars
For such a pivotal character Darth Vader was shoved way deep into the background, only popping up from time to time to perform a Force choke or admit that he’s the father.
3. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs
The entire movie was about this horrible cannibalistic monster and what did we get? Almost no Anthony Hopkins at all!
