One actor that was prolific in the 80's and 90s, is the late Kevin Peter Hall. At 7' 4" tall, he is one of the most imposing character actors ever. In 1987 he got the role of the alien in Predator (1987) and changed the face of cinema. But, we never saw his face, unless you were observant enough to see him piloting the helicopter at the end of the film.
Here's a clip talking about the man and the costume in the behind-the-scenes film "The Making of Predator." If you've never seen Kevin Peter Hall, or want to know how they made the costume, check it out.
