Stunt doubles are a very important part of movie and television production, they can do those crazy stunts that are either too dangerous, too complicated for the actors to do or because the insurance companies simply won’t allow it. But it’s not often you get to see what each stunt double actually looks like (beats the point if we saw them clearly in the movies).
So here are 14 pictures of famous actors with their stunt doubles on set of various films and TV shows:
