Look alikes can earn money
In the world of media today, people who look a lot like singers, actors and models are making a lot of money and not only are they helping themselves but they are considered quite a big asset for the media.

If you believe you look like a particular celebrity or singer or even a model then you should know that there may be some agent or casting director looking for you to play a part. As a look-alike you may be asked to play a part or make an appearance in any kind of media starting from plays, movies and films to videos and even television shows as the demand for look-alikes is always high in the movie industry.
You can make yourself even more accessible to casting agencies and casting directors by doing some research yourself online. As you know the internet is the best way to get to know websites that make sure of such talent of look-alikes and websites that can even ask you for your contact information and where you can meet personally with the agents. It’s pretty amazing how a lot of people out there resemble famous and stunning stars in the Hollywood industry and many of these people have actually made good use of their resemblance by entering the industry and making money for themselves.
Some people who look-alike a celebrity may not want to get this sort of attention and they may also be quiet tired of the comments or compliments they receive but you can make this turn out to your advantage. Firstly, it is actually quite exciting to look-alike a celebrity or royalty you admire or are fond of. Some look-alikes may even just want to showcase their picture on a website just so they and their resemblance can get acknowledged.
In fact, you can even act as a stunt double of a celebrity in an action sequence; of course, for this you will be required to have some experience in martial arts, horse-riding, fights etc. but if you do, then this can be even more advantageous for you because casting agencies would pay a lot of money for stunt doubles who not only look like the actual celebrity but can perform stunts as well. For more popular celebrities, talent agencies and casting agencies may even employ more than one look-alike because their demand will be even greater than for people who look like lesser popular celebrities. So if you look like a celebrity or a royalty, don’t be shy because there are people looking for you and they will have well-paid work for you in the movie industry. http://www.lvtalent.com/
