13 Actors Who Had Their Siblings Play Their Body Double In Iconic Movies

Let’s see if you saw any of these.

Actors pay really outstanding effort to whatever role they’re given and that’s what good actors do, right? With that said some actors go the extra mile and rather than using a body double for filler content, they sometimes have a little fun and include their siblings to act for them which as a concept and in execution is the coolest thing ever. It’s nice to know that some of the scenes from our favourite movies have the actors playing it but these scenes are done in such a professional manner that no one can tell whether it’s the real actor or their sibling playing them.


Here’s a list of 13 actors who at some point in their career used their sibling as a double:
