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?
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…
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…
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
