It's Not All Photo-ops and Free Champagne for Celebrity Lookalikes

July 21, 2015 1 min read

Ever wondered what it'd be like to wake up as Taylor Swift or George Clooney? Barack Obama? For celebrity lookalikes, they get a taste of that whenever they're out in public. And for some of them the temptation to identify too closely with their doppleganger can be irresistible. Andy Harmer, the 32-year-old founder of Britain's Lookalikes Talent Agency, is a David Beckham impersonator.  "Sometimes I dream that I’m really him...and then I wake up and realize I’m just a normal bloke from Eastbourne." david beckham lookalike Harmer's agency employs 270 celebrity impersonators who may take decoy limos, pull PR stunts, and of course do public appearances. But looking like a celebrity can be a curse if the celeb in question hits on scandal or falls from the public eye. After one popular personality who fell from grace with the public, Harmer said the lookalike was promptly released. "It’s just too on the wrong side of wrong...The poor guy can’t go out in public any more." But is it healthy to indulge the public need for constant access to celebrity? Is it healthy to lose one's own personality in cultivating the speech and mannerisms of a stranger? Ricky Gervais impersonator Tim Oliver says he feels the confusion at times, especially when he's asked to give speeches at weddings as Gervais. "It’s weird, my life is like a made-up character." Would you want to look like a celebrity? Blessing or curse? Let us know! h/t: Daily Mail  Do you follow us on Instagram?
