Check out these 20 actors hanging out with their photo doubles and stand-ins.

A stand-in for film and TV is a person who substitutes for the actor before filming, for technical purposes such as lighting or blocking.

Stand-ins assist in the production process because lighting setup can be a slow and tedious process. During this time the actor will often times be somewhere else. Stand-ins allow the director of photography to adjust the lights for the scene and the camera operators to light and focus scenes.

The director will often times ask stand-ins to deliver the scene dialogue and walk through (blocking) the scenes to be filmed. This will help speed up the day’s production and is a necessary and valuable cast member.

Stand-ins are different from body doubles, who actually replace the actors on camera from behind, in makeup or during stunts. Stand-ins do not appea ron camera. Sometimes, the job of a stand-ins and double are done by the same person.

Stand-ins do not necessarily look like the actor, but usually they have the same skin tone, hair color, height and even build as the actor so that lighting in a scene will be done correctly.

Some celebrities require that they always have the same stand-ins. For example, Adam Bryant is Robin Williams official stand-in.
