Russell Brand to join Madame Tussauds
RUSSELL’S BRAND NEW DOUBLE TO JOIN THE A-LIST LINE-UP AT MADAME TUSSAUDS LONDON
We are proud to announce that we are creating a wax figure of one of Britain’s most flamboyant characters - comedian, broadcaster and actor, Russell Brand. The exceptionally eloquent performer, famous for his big words will join a host of other famous faces in the A-List Party area of the world famous attraction in September.
On becoming immortalised in wax Russell said, "Now that I'm monogamous I want to live vicariously through wax Russell, I insist that he's placed next to wax Helen Mirren and I hope they melt into one sexy blob".
The charismatic performer gave a sitting for the Madame Tussauds studios team in Los Angeles, where over 300 measurements and a catalogue of reference shots were taken. The figure will mirror Brand’s own eccentric style, with big hair, skin-tight trousers, abundant silver jewellery and his trademark ‘guy-liner.’
Liz Edwards, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London said, “Russell Brand is a fabulously larger than life character who has a huge following. He has been continually named by guests as one of the celebs they most want to see in the attraction – and we are happy to oblige. His distinct look will make him a fantasticaly visual figure and we think guests will be queing up to be snapped next to him.”
Brand rose to fame thanks to his quick-fire wit presenting shows such as Big Brother’s Big Mouth, and has also achieved notoriety as a hugely popular stand-up comic. He has gone on to acting success with a number of film appearances including the romantic comedy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Box Office smash Get him to the Greek and forthcoming roles in Despicable Me, The Tempest with Dame Helen Mirren and is currently filming the re-make of Arthur in New York.
