Model Answer 1:
There are a number of actors from my country who are very popular among the people, but very few of them is as popular as Keanu Reeves. So, today, I would like to talk about this great actor who has remained a poster boy of the Hollywood film industry for almost three decades.

Keanu Reeves is a Canadian actor, producer, director and musician who was born in 1964. After starting his film career in 1984, he soon rose to his fame for his starring roles in several blockbuster films, including comedies from the Bill and Ted franchise (1989–present); action thrillers Point Break (1991), Speed (1994), and the John Wick franchise (2014–present); psychological thriller The Devil's Advocate (1997); supernatural action horror Constantine (2005); and sci-fi action series The Matrix (1999–present). He has also appeared in drama films such as Dangerous Liaisons (1988), My Own Private Idaho (1991), and Little Buddha (1993), as well as the romantic horror Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).

Therefore, it is fair to suggest that he is one of those gifted actors who excel in all kinds of acting and movies. Anyway, even though, Keanu Reeves has enjoyed a very successful professional life, his personal life has gone through some tragic incidents. For example, his daughter died only a week before she was supposed to be born. A couple of years later, he lost the woman, he loved so dearly, in a car accident. Notably, even though, this actor has enjoyed such success in his career, he doesn’t live a very lavish and glamorous life like many other stars.

Anyway, Keanu Reeves is so popular, mainly because he always seems to be himself and so natural in all the movies, he acts. Besides, he lives a rather modest life for such a successful Hollywood star. In fact, he even openly claims that he doesn’t find much happiness in luxury mansions and expensive cars. His generosity in giving charity also makes him a very popular person. In fact, he has set up a cancer charity while also donating $80 million of his $114 million earning from his movie “The Matrix”.


Sample Answer 2:
I am from a little Indian town and my country is famous for making great movies. Movie actors are highly revered in my country and they are idols for thousands of youths and adults alike.

Now getting back to my favourite actor - it has to be Aamir Khan who is also known as the "Mr Perfectionist". His full name is Mohammed Aamir Hussain Khan and he is a much esteemed Indian actor, filmmaker and television talk-show host.

Well, Mr Aamir has a very diverse acting career and he has acted (and still acting) in many genres of movies including romantic, comedy, drama, romantic comedy, historical drama, thriller and so on. He still acts in major Bollywood films. Some of his biggest hit movies are "Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak", "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar", "Lagaan", "3 Idiots", "Taare Zameen Par" and "PK".

Well, I've read a few comprehensive articles about this actor, and according to these articles, he started acting at a very young age and his family went through financial hardship despite being related to the film-making industry. It was so difficult a situation that he was at risk to be expelled from school due to the non-payment of school fees. He also played tennis and became a state-level champion. His early acting career was also challenging and once he was recognised as a talented actor, he never had to look back. He is one of the richest actors in India now and brand-ambassador for big brands like Coca-Cola, Samsung, Snapdeal and Tata Sky. Mr Khan is married to Kiran Rao and the father of three children.

Due to his powerful acting and appearance in impressive films over a time of 3 decades in Hindi movies, he has successfully established himself as one of the most popular and influential actors in India. His standing for humanitarian, social and political causes also makes him so popular. Khan was awarded the "Padma Bhushan" in 2010, one of the Indian government’s highest civilian awards and mass people love him for his acting, personality and attitude.
