Tim Curry (Dr. Frank-N-Furter)
THEN: Back in the 1970s, Tim Curry was primarily a stage actor, until one of the musicals he starred in, The Rocky Horror Show, was turned into a film. Curry led the insanity as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a self-described “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.”
NOW: Curry’s performance in The Rocky Horror Picture Show led the star to years of notables film roles in monosyllabic classics like It and Clue, and even Legend. He also continued acting on the stage, earning himself three Tony nominations for Best Actor in a Musical, and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 Tony Awards.
