Day 26: Greetings from India

No, I’m not in India but let’s pretend that I’ve been finding myself and my doppelgänger in Rajasthan since my last post in April. I know I’ve mentioned it before but I’ve started a Facebook page for my search, different tactic and all that. Please ‘like’ it, and if possible, share it on your Facebook walls with your friends and ask your friends to do the same. And perhaps introduce a bit of cross-pollination by emailing the link for my Facebook page to your family and friends? That would be wonderful. (OK, just one more.)

As always (I know, change the record, right?), I’m needing more lookalike suggestions so PLEASE get in touch with pictures and details or whatever leads you have. I thought I’d share a recent doppelgänger suggestion all the way from India from a guy called Chinnu who emailed me after reading a piece I wrote for Reader’s Digest. He sent a picture of Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and according to many people, well, five people on Facebook, she might just be the best contender yet. But what do you think?

Day 24: Seeing double

Does an identical twin have more than one doppelgänger? And are identical twins ever completely identical – are they, for example, born with moles and birth mark(s) in the same places and do they both have innie (or outie) belly buttons? Of course life experience inevitably lessens the resemblance between identical twins (whether that’s a different haircut, contact lenses or even a tattoo).

On the subject of twins, it’s not the first time I’ve been put in touch with a doppelgänger suggestion who already has their very own lookalike sibling. Caroline, below left, is a fellow writer. Her twin sister, Kelly, is not a writer as far as I know. But who looks more like me? Vote below…

Day 23: Meet woman from Uniqlo advert

Happy Christmas, everyone!

It’s thanks to my friend, Harry, for the next doppelgänger suggestion. He posted a picture of this woman on my Facebook wall after he found her in an an Uniqlo advert in Metro. Anyone know this woman? Unfortunately I don’t even know her name…

Please keep your doppelgänger suggestions coming. The more, the better. In the meantime, reckon woman from Uniqlo advert could be my doppelgänger? Vote below…

Woman from Uniqlo advert or Sophie Robehmed?

Sophie Robehmed or woman from Uniqlo advert?


Day 22: Meet Kate

Kate was the first doppelgänger suggestion I got within minutes of doing a shout out on Facebook on the first day of my search. Kate’s a friend of a friend who also, rather interestingly, already has a doppelgänger in the form of her identical twin sister.

Anyway, what do you think? Let me know on the poll below.

Day 21: Adele’s doppelgänger is called Michelle

A woman called Michelle Meredith has posed, rather convincingly (well, until you get too close), as Adele in a video for Set Fire to the Rain, the third single from 21, that the real Adele hasn’t even made a video for yet. Brilliant.

Day 16: Is there a doctor in the house?

I am looking to speak to a genetics expert or any other doctor/expert with the appropriate experience, expertise and enthusiasm when it comes to doppelgängers and the science behind them – even better if this person has been involved in research on the subject. I am looking for the sort of person who can answer questions like: Why does it happen? How does it happen? And how often does it happen?

I have a few ideas of experts I could speak to but was wondering if any of my blog readers were qualified and wanted to get involved in the project, know someone who would be excellent and would be interested in talking to me about this or could recommend someone who knows their stuff either in the UK or abroad. I would really appreciate it if you could please get in touch with any suggestions you have – either comment below or send an email to sophierobehmed@live.com. Thank you.
