It’s hard to imagine our favorite action movies without risky car chases or bare hand combat scenes. Green backgrounds and digital special effects have helped advance film technologies, but most of these stunts are made possible by liners. Tom Cruise is one of the few actors who insist on doing all his stunts himself, but the majority of actors do not want to take risks and ask for help.
The work that stunt doubles do doesn’t go unnoticed. Actors praise and appreciate their doubles. One actor’s double is actually his cousin. I’m not here to destroy the magic, but seeing these actors and actresses with their doubles frraks me out.
