And you didn't notice: 5 actors who were replaced by their siblings on camera
Sometimes actors are replaced on the set by stunt doubles and stuntmen. They can appear in the frame with bed scenes or, for example, perform complex physical stunts. An important nuance: the "double" must be similar to the actor (face and physique). This is so that the audience will not see the replacement. So, in the media franchise "Star Wars", Keira Knightley became Natalie Portman's double. Notice.
