Wes Studi Named One of the 25 Greatest Actors of the Century by The New York Times


December 2, 2020

Oscar-winning actor Wes Studi was Number 19 on The New York Times' "25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century (So Far)" list.

NEW YORK - Wes Studi (Cherokee) was named on Sunday to The New York Times' prestigious "25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century (So Far)" list.

Studi comes in at Number 19 on the list. The Times writes about the award-winning actor:

"Wes Studi has one of the screen's most arresting faces - jutting and creased and anchored with the kind of penetrating eyes that insist you match their gaze. Lesser directors like to use his face as a blunt symbol of the Native American experience, as a mask of nobility, of suffering, of pain that's unknowable only because no one has asked the man wearing it. In the right movie, though, Studi doesn't just play with a character's facade; he peels its layers. A master of expressive opacity, he shows you the mask and what lies beneath, both the thinking and the feeling."
