Museum- I'M NOT REALLY...
As a matter of course, actors portray people who they are not.  Most of the time these people are characters who never existed and were made up by writers.  Sometimes, however, these same actors do portray historical people who actually did  exist.

On some occasions, ordinary people who are not actors will dress up as historical personages,  for various reasons, i.e. school plays, tableaus, parades, advertising, parties, Halloween, fun, charity, or just because. Here are some images of people who are not really who they seem to be.
