For an action movie to generate hype these days, it has to have some increasingly dangerous stunts. After all, what good is an action movie, if there are no mind-blowing action sequences to see? Even if you are not a fan of action movies, you can’t deny the fact that it is really fantastic to be a daring stunt double. Stunt-doubles, are supposed to be as identical as possible to the main actor’s physique. At times, they also act as stand-ins to get lights and camera, etc. in the proper position before the actors take to the set, but, here the focus is on stunt doubles. These are daring men and women who have spent years on training to become experts at various athletic activities like running, gymnastics and martial arts. They are required to have their bodies in prime physical condition to undertake dangerous stunts without getting hurt.
A large number of the stuntmen and women are so similar to celebrities that they can literally be out on the streets and nobody would be able to spot the difference easily. Some of them look so identical to a star that they keep getting work in all the movies where the star works.
The thing about good stunt doubles is that they generally don’t even let the audiences feel that the heroic action on screen is not being performed by the beloved actor. However, while they perform the death-defying action in front of the cameras, things are not usually so serious for the stunt-doubles, and often they share a light moment or two with the star that they fill in for. Here we are going to share with you some incredibly funny photographs of actors with their stunt doubles. Go ahead and take a look!
