Who hasn’t dreamed of being able to make a copy of themselves and delegate all the hard work to it? As incredible as it sounds, some celebrities have this possibility. In the most difficult moments of filming, producers often substitute stuntmen for stars. They are responsible for recording the riskiest scenes, as, most of the time, they are experienced professionals, capable of executing the movements correctly and safely, unlike the actors.
We, from incredible.club, we decided to highlight 22 stuntmen, responsible for helping the stars to make their work even better and their lives a little easier. And in the bonus, you can also check that it is not always the main actor who appears in the scenes of the final version of some films. Check out!
