In Hollywood, different genres and grossing movies are churned out constantly. Some become a must-see, others don’t do quite well, but that doesn’t mean a lot of work doesn’t go into the production of these movies regardless of the budget or quality. For some roles and scripts, it might seem like you see the actor from the start of the movie till the end, but in fact, there’s the double stunt element that is usually used in movies to achieve specific scenes. For clarity, a stunt double is a look-alike version of the actor who helps out, especially for stunts that the actor can’t readily do such as fight scenes, jumping from a building, choreography, among others. Hence, here is a reveal of some famous actors and actresses, and their stunt doubles in some of your favorite movies.
