While most lead actors are good-looking, sometimes the stunt double is equally beautiful, more so than the lead actor. A recent stunt double that made the headlines is Chinese actress Liu Yifei’s beautiful Mulan stunt double.
Singaporean actress Rebecca Lim uses a stunt double for her role in Mediacorp drama A Jungle Survivor and she recently went on Instagram story to introduce everyone to her stunt double. The clip starts off showing Ms Lim and the stunt double dressed in identical outfits with their backs to the camera.
In a few seconds, they both turn around and then the stunt double is revealed…
It appears that the stunt double is a man and does not look like Ms Lim at all. But he does look good wearing the matching outfit, one must admit.
