Yet, at times, they make cameos in their own films either to fill a small role or because they simply feel like having some time on screen.

Whether they act in small or large roles, some viewers miss their cameos entirely. Did you catch these director’s appearance in these films?

Director M. Night Shyamalan has been known to appear in many of his own films, however, one of the most memorable is from The Sixth Sense, arguably his best work. However, he isn’t particularly known for his acting abilities, and keeps his cameos relatively small, but just long enough that audiences might recognize that it’s him.

This is the case in The Sixth Sense, where Shyamalan makes an appearance as a doctor who is concerned that Cole’s mother might be hurting him, resulting in the boy’s explainable behavior.
