What makes a Cancer a great actor/actress?

If I asked you to recall a famous movie scene, I bet you’d take one that’s highly emotional or dramatic. Why? Probably because of the actor or actress found in it. Although Leos often get all the credit for their performances – after all, they are the drama queens of the Zodiac on or off the screen! – this time we want to pay it to Cancers.

What Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Tom Cruise have in common?

Cancers may appear shy and reserved, but they are not. Their mysteriousness is something that makes them stand out from the moment you meet them. They’re not a kind of an open-book people like Saggitarius’. Cancers will slowly reveal their true nature to you, merely because they are too cautious.

On the other hand, Cancers are amiable persons, with a wide sense of humor. Think about Tom Hanks or Robin Williams – they brought that light, warm humor with every role they played.

One of their biggest assets which they gladly employ on the screen is their ability to get into different moods and positions within a second. Although it may seem exhausting for those who are friends with Cancers in real life, the alternating moods on the screen grow a dominant performance. Thanks to that, they can play outstandingly diverse roles across genres, which is seen in Meryl Streep’s career, for example.

They never fail to surprise you. Cancers are warm, deeply emotional (although they might not appear like it, because of their quiet demeanor), with a strong sense of imagination and intuition. That’s what gives them tools to convey a powerful artistic expression regardless of the genre.

They have a great talent for mimicry, and they can connect to the people on the emotional level better than any other zodiac sign. That gives them a broad palette of feelings, behavior, and traits to work with, which makes them great actors/actresses.
