Most audiences are very much aware that it was not Daniel Craig who was skiing down the mountain, and unless it really is Tom Cruise, then there is a high chance that the Hollywood actor is being played by his stunt double.
There were a few scenes where the actors and actresses had been replaced by other actors and actresses just because they did not fit the role or could not be on set when the scene was being filmed.
1. Hugo Weaving – Avengers: Infinity War
MCU’s very first big villain was in Captain America: The First Avenger-Red Skull. Hugo Weaving had played the role of Johann Schmidt. Avengers: Infinity War brought back Red Skull, but the character had been played the by the actor, Ross Marquand.
2. Natalie Portman – Thor: The Dark World
Natalie Portman’s character, Jane Foster had been plagued with a lot of problems, and the astrophysicist was MIA since Thor: The Dark World. A few reshoots on Alan Taylor’s film had added a very steamy scene where Thor had kissed Jane. A lot of fans would have handed their Infinity Stones for an opportunity to kiss the actor, but Portman was not the one who kissed him as she could not be on set. The actor’s wife, Elsa Pataky had stepped into this role.
3. Paul Walker – Furious 7
When Paul Walker has passed away in the year, 2013, the director Chris Morgan was not sure how to complete the film. By using Walker’s two brothers and more than 350 VFX shots, Morgan had completed the movie. Cody and Caleb Walker had helped Furious 7 become a huge success.
4. Damion Poitier – Guardians of the Galaxy
Damion Poitier had played the role of the Mad Titan, Thanos in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Then, Josh Brolin had filled up the role of Thanos.
5. Penelope Cruz – Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides does have a very memorable cast of Penélope Cruz and also Ian McShane. Cruz was pregnant during the filming of the movie, and the franchise is known to be a very stunt-laden one.
