22 Photos Proving Stunt Doubles Should Get Oscars Too

5 years ago

Modern movies are becoming more and more spectacular. And the more special effects there are, the more necessary stunt doubles become. But still, despite the incredible contribution that stunt doubles make, they are still in the shadow of the actors they replace. And often, viewers don’t even know that the most amazing scenes were made not by their favorite actors but by stunt doubles whose names they don’t know. And makeup artists can make these actors look even more alike.
