Actors Whose Lives Are More Interesting Than Their Characters

Celebs who choose to keep their lives adventurous rather than playing it safe and insurable are a daring bunch who are often willing to risk their lives for the welfare of others.

After playing Andrea on The Walking Dead, Laurie Holden decided she wanted to make a real difference in the world, so she went undercover to help free Colombian sex slaves.

Pictured above in her "disguise", Laurie joined Operation Underground Railroad and put her acting skills to work while busting up a sex slavery ring in Cartagena, helping save 55 girls.

She was chosen for the Operation because she'd already worked her magic in Cambodia and Vietnam, proving that Andrea's life was boring compared to Laurie's, even with all the zombies lurking about.

Elizabeth Taylor was known for playing characters who made an emotional impact on the audience, but Liz made an even bigger impact on the world by being part of an AIDS drug smuggling ring.

Before she started the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation she helped combat the AIDS epidemic directly by running an illegal AIDS drug ring out of her mansion in Bel Air.

Liz supplied the infected with an experimental HIV drug and let them use her home as a safe haven, despite the fact her work had begun to alienate her in Hollywood as celebs refused to get on board.

To date, the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation has raised over $270 million to fight the syndrome, and now it's really hard to imagine a world where battling AIDS was a shunnable offense in Hollywood.
