These incredible transformations of actors make them almost unrecognisable, and its all thanks to the incredible and pioneering work of makeup artist Dick Smith who was one of the first to experiment with new techniques in the field that would go on to revolutionize the industry.

Sadly Smith passed away on July the 30th of this year, but to celebrate the work he did and what he has contributed to television and movies throughout the years, here are some incredible transformations.
