37 Famous Actors Who Made Appearances in Music Videos

By  | 


If you think about it, music videos are a lot like mini films. In the span of just a few minutes, there's always a pretty epic storyline to go along with those catchy tunes. But when these videos feature famous actors, whether it be a cameo or an opportunity to play a whole new role, it usually takes the visuals to a whole new level.

For instance, have you seen Dianna Agron and Chris Messina in the video for Sam Smith‘s “I'm Not the Only One”? As heartbreaking as it is to watch, these two gave stunning performances that allowed us all to relate to them on a deeper level. It just goes to show why Sam chose the best of the best, he needed actors who can translate the lyrics of a song and turn them into something quite powerful.

See which other stars have impressed us with their appearances in music videos:

1. Rupert Grint in Ed Sheeran's “Lego House”

In one of his interviews, Ed admitted that people had been confusing him for Rupert Grint since he was 11. So, he intentionally chose to put Rupert in this video to poke fun at himself (and to mix people up!).
