Although many of us have been told that we have a double, only a few find their resemblance to a famous face so creepy that they have made it into a money maker.
From Meghan Markle to the queen, these celebrity doubles are so persuasive, they have signed for the similar agency Aboodooey and enjoy a glimpse into the A-list lifestyle.
There is also & # 39; Prince Harry & # 39 ;, who has flown business class to China to attend a billionaire's birthday party and & # 39; Ron Weasley & # 39 ;, who also acts as Ed Sheeran.
Meanwhile, & # 39; Harry Potter & # 39; unable to have his hair cut since the age of 14, while & # 39; David Beckham & # 39; was once stopped at the airport security for a photo.

When Meghan first appeared in Suits, I sent a lot of people over to tell me how much they thought I looked like her.
I was a fan of the show myself, but had never seen the similarity. Often strangers came out on evenings and asked for photos to be taken with me. I used to find it strange then, but I always went around it and laughed about it.
But once she started to appear more in the news about her association with Harry, I had many more comments about how much I looked like her. Often I was in a store and I was approached or while I saw a customer at work.
It always seemed strange to me because I could never see the parable myself. At this point my sister asked me if she could take some pictures and send them to a desk.
The funniest time I've seen for Meghan was when I was do a promo shoot in London with a Prince Harry lookalike and a Corgi dog.
We walked around casually when a lady approached us and asked why we were walking through London. When chatting with her, we realized that she thought we were the real royals who ran the queen's dog!
I have been very busy with lookalike work for the last 18 months, mostly corporate & # 39; s and & # 39; appearing & # 39; like Meghan at corporate events, usually with a Prince Harry lookalike to make it more realistic.
If I were to look like any other celebrity, it would be Margot Robbie – who wouldn't want to look like her?
But I laughed well as Meghan. It has never been a burden or has kept me from my daily life and I have been able to get a little extra income from it, so I certainly can't complain!

Rhys Whitlock, 35, from London
I became a Prince Harry lookalike at the very moment that his profile became unbelievably high after his engagement announcement to Meghan Markle.
Suddenly I was on the front & # 39; s of the press, I did live TV interviews and I did photo shoots a few times a week.
It's a part-time job right now, but it would be great if it could ever be my full-time job – I absolutely love it!
Before I did this, my regular job was as a project developer. I get a lot more job satisfaction as a look-alike and I love the executive aspect of the work.
Each task can be completely different from the previous one and that keeps it interesting. I never believed that within 12 months I would be flown to Macau, China on live TV, in bus stop texts in London, business class for a billionaire's birthday party, EasyJet & # 39; s Best Prince Harry lookalike competition and won on the stage would perform in the West End in London.

If he could look like any other celebrity, Rhys (photo) would like to be Ryan Reynolds. He said: & # 39; It is surprising how common it is in this industry to play more than one celebrity & # 39;
I am regularly asked to attend photo shoots for advertisements in the national press for things like a replica wedding cake and diapers for supermarkets.
One of the most surreal experiences was when I performed walkabouts for celebrity spoof photographer Alison Jackson.
She photographed the reactions of the audience when I became Harry and walked around in London locations such as Buckingham Palace and London Fashion Week with a Meghan look-alike. It fooled many tourists because many people have no idea of the look-alike industry concept.
Aside from Harry, if I could look like any other celebrity, it would be Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds. It would be nice to be body-double in his films!
Every time I watch his films, I see some resemblance – of course I would have to wear brown contact lenses and dye my hair to complete the transformation. IIt is surprising how often it is to play more than one celebrity in this industry!
Since appearing as Prince Harry, Rhys (photo) business class has flown to China for a billionaire's birthday party and has performed on stage in London's West End

RON WEASLEY AND ED SHEERAN
Lewis, 26, from Lincolnshire
I went to the cinema with my family to see Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, and my parents were shocked to see the resemblance to the young redheaded Ron Weasley. It was like standing on the big screen.
As more films were released and the Harry Potter world grew, my mother wanted to find me a look-alike agent. Being a ginger-haired teenager and being bullied at school, it wasn't a business that I wanted to go through at that time.
As I grew older, my self-confidence grew and I took it upon myself to approach a desk. Since then I have not looked back and I have been on Ron Weasley for almost six years.
As Ed Sheeran's popularity increased, I started to compare myself with him. I once went out with my guitar because I had to have it repaired and a ridiculous amount of people following me and my girlfriend asked for selfies and just sneaky photos, as if I hadn't seen them.
I also went to Ed live in Wembley and got a lot of attention again, made fans cry with excitement and even their parents told me to leave me the way I was & # 39; chilling & # 39; for my performance!
On one occasion my friends dared me to queue up and enter a nightclub. They wanted to see how far I could go to be a lookalike Ed. Surprised, the bouncer let me in and said it was a pleasure meeting me.
I also got my friends and they couldn't believe it! Just a few moments after the manager came to give me a VIP pass and free drinks – what a night that was!
It's amazing that I catch a glimpse of the lifestyle of celebrities, maybe not the & # 39; papped & # 39; bit, but I usually like the attention. Being ginger has finally paid off!

Elizabeth Davis, from London
I went to my friend's wedding last summer and wore a flower dress with a long jacket and matching hat.
I received a lot of attention that day, during which the friends of the bride wanted to have their photos taken with me.
I couldn't quite understand why I was so popular with everyone, until later in the day when her father thanked the queen for the & # 39; s fitting of the wedding in her busy schedule & # 39 ;.
But my mother was a dead bell for the queen, so it looks like I followed her.
For years my friends called me Queenie, but only last year did I decide to make a career out of it.
Elizabeth Davis, from London, was mistaken for the first time because she looked like Her Majesty when she attended her friend's wedding
The double told how the appearance should be hereditary and said: & # 39; My mother was a dead bell for the queen, so it looks like I ran after her & # 39;
Speaking of a time when she was in the same room as the Queen Mother, Elizabeth explained: “She absolutely saw me, because she spent a lot of time on the other side of the room. I had an idea that I might have reminded her of someone! & # 39;
The funniest time I made a mistake for Her Majesty was when I was in my time In the mid-1940s, my uncle who worked for the Queen Mother in Lancaster House invited us to a position where she and Princess Margaret would be present.
I didn't meet the Queen Mother, but she definitely saw me because she was staring at me from the other side of the room for quite some time. I had an idea that I might have reminded her of someone!
Once I was invited to meet an eight-year-old girl from New York. She was convinced that I was the queen, bowed to me when I arrived, and sang a song to me.
She was very sweet, so I invited her to drink tea in my house (the palace) on her next visit, but I am not sure how I could get it if she accepted me on the offer!
I only became a queen last year. I am offered many jobs with regard to official openings for birthday greetings and have recently filmed an advertisement for television.
It is not a full-time job, but I always have something to do. I used to work as a teaching assistant for people with special needs at a local university.
I have always loved the royal family and the queen is a wonderful woman, hardworking, resilient and very stylish just like me. I wouldn't want to look like another celebrity because no one is as famous as Queen Elizabeth!
If she were given the choice, Elizabeth would not look like another celebrity like she said: & # 39; Nobody is as famous as Queen Elizabeth! & # 39;
Denise Ohnona, West Lancashire
The first time I was mistaken that I was Kate Moss was when I was about sixteen and walked past a bar in Liverpool city center.
A group of people all started screaming "there is Kate Moss!" and a man came by and asked if he could be my agent. I was very shy and insecure then and ran away so quickly.
Another time I was eating at a restaurant with my partner in Camden and a group sat next to us who kept whispering to each other and trying to be discreet, taking turns looking at our table.
First my partner noticed and then I realized what was going on. I left the table to use the bathroom and two of the people at the table came to my partner, all excited and saying, "OMG, are you with Kate Moss?" He just grinned a little and shrugged his shoulders not to confirm or deny a little pleasure.
In the past year I have started to take this more seriously and life has changed considerably.
I now live a double life, one in my small home village with my family as the mother of my two girls that I love and my other life where I am traveling, attending modeling or attending events.
Before I became a lookalike and a mother, I worked in the telecommunications industry 9-5 for ten years in an office, but I much prefer being a double.
Kate Moss is unique in its kind, an icon that I highly respect and admire. She knows how to work with the camera and is also a very smart businesswoman. I think I'll keep looking like Kate Moss, by the way, I'm not sure if there are any other Kate Moss lookalikes.

HARRY POTTER AND HERMIONE GRANGER
Luke Williams, 31, and Kathryn Burnett, 32, are a real couple from London
The first day at school after the summer vacation, a classmate, I looked like the boy in the movies and that's where it came from.
It has had a huge impact on my life from the age of 14, I have been a full-time look-alike playing at events around the world.
Kathryn was told that she looked like Hermione Granger when she was little because she had the same hair. When she was with me, everyone started calling us Harry and Hermione.
When we are at events, the children and some adults think they are the & # 39; real & # 39; Harry & Hermione have met – not the actors. It is a very magical moment and can be very special.
We work all year round, especially in the summer and at Halloween. We are booked at all kinds of events, from large festivals and corporate events to very magical birthday parties and sometimes we are even invited to weddings. I once gave a bride away in full costume!
We love the movies, books and the entire franchise. I think I'd love to look Johnny deep if I could choose another lookalike, but the boy wizard will do it!
Kathryn would like to be Emilia Clarke or Sophie Turner or any Game of Thrones character.
But we love what we do. We are lucky that we travel all over the world and go to the most amazing events and magical places. It has a few downside.
Kathryn is subject to a bit of bulling on social media, but she doesn't let it get her down, it only makes her stronger, while I haven't been able to choose my haircut since I was 14!

Mark Woodward, from Worcestershire
I was first confused with the football legend while working at a golf club. I had never grown a beard and one day I thought why not? I showed up after a few days off and the staff and members kept saying you looked like Beckham, which was a great compliment!
I never thought I looked like David Beckham before, but I am a huge admirer of what he has achieved in his professional and private life. He is still incredibly busy and always in the spotlight.
The funniest time I was mistaken for him was when I returned from vacation. I got up and put my bags in the X-ray machine, walked through the security point and was then asked to stand aside, the staff came by and wanted a photo. Everyone looked, it was really embarrassing.
I have always been busy with many sports and while I wanted to become a professional football player at school, for which I had a number of tests. I finally decided that golf would be my career. I am now a P.G.A. Professional golfer, which I really enjoy.
Since starting an Instagram account, the feedback has been really positive. I am connected by a number of agencies and will just see what the future holds.
I receive more bookings and questions, with vacancies ranging from presentation evenings, YouTube, photo shoots, birthdays and store openings. I thanked my parents for the genes!
It seems that David Beckham is a huge compliment and I enjoy the journey. It is very nice and makes people smile.

Edgar DiCaprio, 28, from London
I have always liked to experiment with different hairstyles and try new things with my hair.
In 2015 I decided to try a new comb-over haircut, so many people had it that I didn't even think about looking like Leonardo DiCaprio.
I was first mistaken for Leonardo DiCaprio when I went on vacation to Spain with my girlfriend and she pointed out that many people pointed their fingers and took photos.
I could not really understand why and became a little self-conscious, maybe I had something on my face or did I wear something that was not normal for Spanish citizens?
I then saw a large family persuade their child to come to me – the little boy was a bit reluctant and shy, and later he agreed, and when he approached me he said: & Mr. DiCaprio, my mother loves you, can she take a photo with you? & # 39 ;.
My girlfriend started laughing and said: & # 39; They think you are Leonardo DiCaprio! & # 39; I was in total shock because it never hit me,

The lookalike (photo) has never before tried to look at someone else or pretend to be a model or to behave himself
When the Great Gatsby theme became popular, Edgar (photo) was stopped every day and told that he looked like Leonardo DiCaprio
I waved goodbye to them and before I knew it I had gathered around 30 people who asked for signatures and a photo.
Before that, I didn't really think about ever trying to look or pretend to be someone else, because I actually intended to model / act myself.
However, when I changed my image and the theme of Great Gatsby became very popular, it was almost an everyday thing where people would approach me to say that I look like Leonardo DiCaprio. I have to admit that I love attention, so this was a pleasant experience.
I was also part of an Egyptian Prank Show where real Egyptian celebrities were fooled into thinking I was Leonardo DiCaprio.
And when I was in Dubai, the message spread pretty quickly and every night when I left the film studio, I left many fans outside and waited for a photo and signature.
While I was accompanied on the set by two bodyguards, it seemed even more realistic that I was Leonardo DiCaprio.
I am regularly booked for Great Gatsby theme parties, so I get at least two bookings per month, varying from weddings, work parties, seasonal events and birthdays.
Fortunately I am a big fan of Leonardo DiCaprio and I always have been, I think all his work (especially Great Gatsby) is spectacular.
I absolutely love being his look-alike. It never thought negatively about me.
