Double Trouble! – The Stunt Doubles Behind our Favorite Action Stars

Spread the word if you like it! 😉

Gwendoline Christie and Mark Slaughter

Not all stunt doubles look like the main actors they portray. At least, not exactly.

For instance, did you know that Gwendoline Christie – better known as Brienne of Tarth to Game of Thrones fans – has a male stunt double? Here she can be seen posing with him. Stuntman Mark Slaughter does most of Christie’s stunts. Rory McCann – that’s Sandor Clegane for us geeks – has a stunt double too, and he the two decided to get in on Christie’s and Slaughter’s photo op, too!


Johnny Depp and Tony Angelotti

It’s impossible to imagine anyone else but Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow… Or is it? His body double, Tony Angelotti, looks just like everyone’s favorite drunken pirate and it was his job to jump in when his escapades entered dangerous territory. Unfortunately, Angelotti was seriously injured while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and even sued Walt Disney Co. for negligence.


Margot Robbie and Ingrid Kleinig

Trouble follows Harley Quinn everywhere she goes, and when Margot Robbie signed up to play the part it immediately became obvious she wouldn’t be able to do it all alone. Ingrid Kleinig was ready to help her bring the character to life, and the two later teamed up on the set of The Legend of Tarzan. Kleinig also enjoys working with Evangeline Lilly – most recently, she did her stunts for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
