You May Have To Look Twice: Actors And Their Stunt Doubles

Hollywood is filled with much more than just actors, directors, and producers. A lot is going on behind the scenes that help make a movie great. There are Costume designers and makeup teams, but the real magic comes from the stunt performers. Typically, the actor gets praise for their part in the movie, but the stunt workers hardly ever get recognition. It’s all part of the illusion; audiences are supposed to feel like someone else is playing the character. Many actors do give credit to their stunt doubles and pose for a picture showing off their similarities.
