Most of you reading this will be aware that certain TV shows and many movies will use stunt/body doubles for their actors and actresses. This will often be for their own protection, or for the fact they lack certain talents or capabilities that are needed for the productions in question. However, despite having this knowledge, it is easy to miss these doubles due to how seamlessly things are edited. But, we’re here to bring you some awesome images showing actors and actresses posing alongside their doubles. Take a look!

There’s no doubt in our minds that you’re feeling pretty mind blown right now. Isn’t it fascinating how some actors and actresses have doubles that are of the opposite gender to them? You’d think you’d be able to spot something like that but it just goes to show how talented editors are.

Another great thing about being a stunt double is that you don’t often have as much fame as the leading actors and actresses. This isn’t meant in a derogatory way, we simply mean that it must be awesome to hang out with stars and be in films and TV shows without having to carry the weight of constantly being hounded by paparazzi.
