Movies have huge impact on how we perceive history. Of course, we don’t believe these TV characters look exactly the same as their historic counterparts, but we do believe that there may be some similarities – which, in reality, is not always the case.
Here are TV characters and what their historical figures really looked like:
Xerxes I in ’300′
Portrayed by Rodrigo Santoro
From the looks to the wardrobe, everything is different.
Alexander III of Macedon (Alexander the Great) in ’Alexander’
Portrayed by Colin Farrell
Aside from the difference in appearance, the film itself is full of historical inaccuracies.
