A body double is a person who stands in for an actor in a particular scene, usually for shots that purportedly show the actor’s nudity or specific body parts, such as the back legs or chest.
Body doubles are commonly used in scenes that involve nudity, intimacy, or physical activity that may be difficult or unsafe for the actor to perform.
They can also be used to create the illusion of more than one person in a scene, or to extend the amount of time an actor can be on set. It’s a common practice in the movie industry.
Filmmakers use body doubles to avoid the risk of injury to the main actors, protect their privacy and to make the movie process more efficient. The use of body doubles in the film industry is a common practice that dates back to the early days of Hollywood.
Body doubles are used for a variety of reasons, such as to protect the privacy and comfort of the actor or to ensure that the scene is filmed in a way that is consistent with the director’s vision.
In Nigeria explicit nudity is forbidden by the regulator, National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB).
In the case of Shanty Town, the director and producers decided to use a body double for the nude scene in order to protect actress Nancy Isime’s privacy and comfort, and to comply with the country’s laws and regulations.
Isime, who has caused a buzz on the social media, has explained how nude scenes in the Shanty Town series were achieved.
The scene which shows her unclad went viral on Friday and sparked debates online on whether or not that was the real nude of the actress.
But, reacting to the conversation, Isime revealed that it was not her nudity that was on display in the scene, but rather a body double.
“Simmer down horny boys and girls. I know those gorgeous body parts excite you but they sadly belong to my beautiful body double. Mine aren’t that succulent,” the actress wrote on her Instagram page.
