Yes, that’s actual Christopher Lee up top. But we swear Baker comes close.
Multi-time Academy Award winner and nominee Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson’s Thriller) may have retired from the film industry a few years back, but if you follow Baker on social media, you know that he’s still making good use of his talents. Even if he’s playing around at home, using himself as the model.
On Instagram this week, Baker shared a photo of himself as the late, legendary Christopher Lee, using makeup on himself to enhance his natural similarities to Lee.
“I was going to trim my beard because people said I look like Count Dooku but before I trimmed it I thought I’d do a quick out of the kit Count Dooku/Christopher Lee make up,” he noted.
This is what it looks like when two horror legends combine into one!
Before and after, My quick test to become count Dooku. A few shadows and highlights ,taped my drooping upper eyelids and laid some eyebrows. I would like to do this properly and make some appliances and I think I could get pretty close. If I were only a foot taller. #countdooku #outofthekit #rickbaker #makeup
