Chinese Actor Du Yiheng, Who Was Andy Lau’s Body Double For 10 Years, Just Won An International Acting Award
Good things come to those who wait and work hard.
Chinese actor Du Yiheng, 42, looks a lot like Andy Lau. So much, in fact, that he spent a decade as the 59-year-old Heavenly King's body double.
Yiheng first started out as singer in the '90s to very little success and he eventually became a backup dancer for Jacky Cheung’s concerts.
In 2000, he won talent show Super Star Impersonators — no prizes for who he mimicked — and was soon contacted by Andy’s team.
They offered him a job as Andy’s body double and Yiheng would take Andy's place whenever the star had to shoot dangerous stunts. According to Chinese media, Yiheng was in “almost every single one” of Andy’s movies from 2000 to 2010.
