Real-life can be way more mysterious, interesting, and inspirational than stories sometimes. And there are so many people who need to be applauded or at least for their real-life deeds. And hence, we have books or movies based on such people, so more of us can understand and get to know them. As you know, the movie business is a sucker for a good real-life story and so it’s no big surprise actors and filmmakers are always looking to do biopics. But as exciting as it to make a biopic, it is equally as hard to play a real-life character because there’s a benchmark that the person has already set.
