In movies and series, many actors are action heroes who jump out of cars or planes and fight their enemies with force. Some scenes are obviously not without danger. Fortunately, there are trained stunt doubles who play our Hollywood stars so well in perilous scenes that it goes unnoticed. Many of these stuntmen and women even look like the stars - but see for yourself!

#1 Chris Pratt & Tony McFarr

McFarr then mimicked the action hero in films such as "Jurassic World", "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom", "Passengers" and the second part of "Guardians of the Galaxy".

#2 Halle Berry & Anisha Gibbs 

In “John Wick 3”, Anisha Gibbs played the action scenes for Hollywood star Halle Berry. She told People magazine at the time: “The most interesting challenge for the stunt work in John Wick 3 was working with the dogs, which was totally new for both me and Halle! [...] Everything has to be rehearsed over and over again until it’s absolutely perfect to ensure the safety of the dogs, and we had to spend a ton of time with them off-camera to have them get comfortable with us, learn our scents, and know who to ‘attack’ when the time was right.”

#3 Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson & Tanoai Reed

The well-trained body seems to run in the family, as Tanoai Reed is not only Dwayne Johnson's stunt double, but also his cousin! The two have previously starred together in several films, including “Skyscraper“ which was released in 2018. During their collaboration, Reed has already been injured once or twice. But even without his famous cousin, Reed has gained a foothold in the industry. His credits include roles in various films, such as “Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle“, “Blood and Bone“ and “American Gladiator”.

#7 Elijah Wood und Kiran Shah

As it was not possible to represent the size of the hobbits in “The Lord of the Rings” only with CGI, it was necessary to find a double for Elijah Wood. Indeed, Kiran Shah is considered the smallest stuntman in the world! So he not only played an important role in Peter Jackson's film adaptation, but was also seen in dozens of other blockbusters. As an actor, among others in: various parts of “Star Wars“, “The Chronicles of Narnia: The King of Narnia“ and “Alice in Wonderland”.

#12 Chris Hemsworth und Bobby Holland Hanton

In order for Chris Hemsworth's stunt double to become so broad-shouldered, he had to stuff himself. It is said that he ate up to 35 meals a day to look like the actor. He also had to grow out his beard and hair so he could dub him as realistically as possible in the „Thor” and “Avengers“ movies. But in the meantime, the resemblance was not long in coming.
