‘What Are Some Small Roles With A Huge Impact?” 24 Twitter Users Reply

A Twitter named Brett shared a picture of Regina George’s mom from Mean Girls with the caption, “Name a smaller role with a bigger impact?” People excitedly replied to the tweet, now with thousands of responses, with their all time favorite small roles in TV shows and movies that they felt like were especially memorable for their short screen times. 

Some of the responses were silly, but some were more serious and included mentions from huge horror movies with short-lived characters you might have missed if you weren’t paying attention to them. It turns out Hannibal Lecter was only on screen for five minutes of Silence of the Lambs! A little bit of great acting goes a long way!
