Some actors will go to great lengths to prepare for their roles, and Al Pacino is no exception. For his role as the blind retired Army Lieutenant Colonel in Scent of a Woman, Pacino went full method. He trained himself to not focus his eyes on anything, in order to simulate blindness. His dedication to the craft was so great that he became so good at it that the scene where his character, Frank Slade, falls over a garbage can was purely an accident because he couldn’t see anything in front of him. It's a testament to Pacino's commitment to his role, and it's no wonder he won an Oscar for his performance.
