Wes Studi

Studi in 2019 Wesley Studi (; born December 17, 1947) is a Native American (Cherokee Nation) actor and film producer. He has garnered critical acclaim and awards throughout his career, particularly for his portrayal of Native Americans in film. He has appeared in Academy Award-winning films, such as ''Dances with Wolves'' (1990) and ''The Last of the Mohicans'' (1992), and in the Academy Award-nominated films ''Geronimo: An American Legend'' (1993) and ''The New World'' (2005). He is also known for portraying Sagat in ''Street Fighter'' (1994). Other films he has appeared in are ''Hostiles'', ''Heat'', ''Mystery Men'', ''Avatar'', ''A Million Ways to Die in the West'', and the television series ''Penny Dreadful''. In 2019, he received an Academy Honorary Award, becoming the first Native American and the second Indigenous person from North America to be honored by the Academy (the first was Buffy Sainte-Marie).}}

In December 2020, ''The New York Times'' ranked him #19 in its list of the "25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century (So Far)," noting “Wes Studi has one of the screen’s most arresting faces — jutting and creased and anchored with the kind of penetrating eyes that insist you match their gaze. Lesser directors like to use his face as a blunt symbol of the Native American experience, as a mask of nobility, of suffering, of pain that’s unknowable only because no one has asked the man wearing it. In the right movie, though, Studi doesn’t just play with a character’s facade; he peels its layers. A master of expressive opacity, he shows you the mask and what lies beneath, both the thinking and the feeling.” Provided by Wikipedia
