The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...
What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.
Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. »

Check out Cineplex Magazine's 2017 movie preview!
In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle »

Up until this point, we’d been led to believe that the only character from Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner that would be returning for Arrival director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sequel would be Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), but a new rumor doing the rounds suggests that might not be the case. According to The Terminator Fans – who have nailed a few scoops in the past, we should point out – the former replicant-hunter is going to be joined by one of his old targets, who will be brought back by the power of a fully CG performance.
Blade Runner featured five, possibly six replicant characters: Roy, Pris, Zhora, Leon, Rachel and, depending on who you ask, Deckard himself. The middle pair were very minor characters and were killed off pretty quickly, so we’ll assume Villeneuve and co. won’t be resurrecting them.

A lot of mystery still surrounds the story and production of the long-awaited sequel Blade Runner 2049. Very little is known about the film and how it will connect to Ridley Scott’s original, save the return of Harrison Ford as Detective Rick Deckard. Now, however, The Terminator Fans have posted an intriguing rumour that says a Replicant from the original Blade Runner could be making an appearance via CGI.
Replicants are robots that appear human in very lifelike ways, from their skin to speech patterns, but never physically age. Terminator Fans’ sources say that thanks to the advancement of digital technology to recreate an actor’s younger appearance – such as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator: Salvation and Terminator Genisys or more recently Peter Cushing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – director Denis Villeneuve and the production team will be able to recreate one of the original replicants.
