Liam McIntyre became a major star because of the Starz television series "Spartacus: War of the Damned" and he followed that up with a feature role in the movie "The Legend of Hercules". Action-adventure roles have made him a popular name with fans and while many actors want to show that they can play any type of role there is a feeling among some fans and social media entertainment observers that sometimes it is best to become a star in one genre before broadening your resume.
Liam McIntyre's projects since his big screen action-adventure film debut in "The Legend of Hercules" have been a couple episodes on the television series "Auckland Daze" and a feature role in the television movie "The Killing Field". He will next be seen in the dramatic movie "The Dream Children" which revolves around a troubled television personality who is fighting to find some meaning in his life in the face of the superficial world he has created.
His projects are dramatic projects that will very likely earn him praise as a versatile actor but for the moment they do not provide that 'buzz' that was his when he starred as Spartacus in the television series "Spartacus: War of the Damned". When that show was on Starz television many fans, in particular women, made sure that was one show that was not missed and social media conversation rooms literally were jam-packed with people talking about him and the show.
There is no question he is a talented dramatic actor but sometimes the best way for an actor to get the starring role projects that they want they sometimes need to have the leverage as a box-office star to not only get the films made but to ensure that they get to star in the particular films.
Liam McIntyre has not said he is moving away from action-adventure films but his next three projects are dramas which at first glance look they will have very little in terms of action-adventure in the film if any at all.
Actions sometimes speak louder than words and fans and entertainment observers will soon find out if Liam McIntyre is making the best decision for his career with his 'break' from action-adventure.
