Kate Winslet and her double on the set of the classic film Titanic. You may be thinking to yourself, as the damsel of distress in the movie, what stunts did her double have to fill in for, but think about all of the running around, and the water scenes, all that can be a lot for an actress especially during soots that last for several hours, if not all day, for several days.
Winslet’s double looks the role and was physically fit to do anything needed to truly emulate the actress while staying true to the film’s character, Rose.
Michael Douglas is actually good friends and golfing buddy with his stunt-double, who has been doing amazing stunts for him for 26 years now. Not only are the similarities striking between them, but they share the same first name as well, Michael! Michael Runyard has also doubled for Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Adam Sandler, and Christopher Walken in the past.
Runyard officially began working with Douglas in 1988 on the set of the film "Black Rain," and they remained friends. Here you can see the "twins" on the set of Ant-Man.
The Incredible Hulk(s)
In this photo, you can see Manny Perry a popular American stunt coordinator and stuntman who started his career in the bodybuilding world and won the titles of Mr. USA, Mr. America, and even Mr. World. He later transitioned into stunt performing, with his starring role in The Incredible Hulk, which was beautifully captured in the photo below, alongside Lou Ferrigno (left) and Frank Orsatti (center), who was Bill Bixby's stunt man in the series.
Perry was one of the few African American stuntmen in the business, and today has over 200 stunt and stunt coordinator credits to his name and has gone against some of the top names in action films for over 30 years.
Jamie Alexander and her stunt double, Kylie Furneaux, in the drama series, Blindspot, look as though they could be sisters! Perhaps the fact that they've been working together for over 10 years, things started to rub off on one another. The two are very close offset, and have a lot in common, well except for the fact that Furneaux knows Kung-Fu and can jump out of planes.
Whenever Alexander lands a gig she always calls up her friend, so if you see her doing something extraordinary in a film or TV show, you can be sure Furneaux is behind all the cool tricks.
The King and Her Queen
You've probably already noticed that in order to be a stunt double, you don't have to look exactly like the actor you're portraying, adults stand in for children actors, and male stuntmen stand in for female actresses. But in this case of Regina King and her stunt double on the set of Southland, they absolutely nailed it.
With similar skin tones and eyes, it looks like the stunt woman could easily pass as King's sister.
