A TikToker has said his resemblance to the late Heath Ledger has led to stares in public and people online thinking they’ve seen a “ghost”.
Speaking to NeedToKnow.Online, Scar said: “I’ve had a lot of people tell me that they were scrolling on social media and had to stop because they thought they saw a ghost.
“I’m not mistaken for him in public, because we all know he’s no longer with us, but I do get people staring while in the park or any public place.”
The content creator, who is from Italy and based in London, said he was living a “normal” life until he moved to Perth, Australia when a girl mentioned the similarity in appearance.
Comments on his videos frequently mention his likeness to Ledger. On a recent video, one fan wrote: “Came here because woah Heath Ledger doppelganger.”
His resemblance has also landed him a role as Ledger in an upcoming film, titled Fatal Addiction, which will be released on streaming platforms in December this year.
“I simply got a call from a lookalikes agency and they asked if I wanted to play as Heath for a movie,” Scar said.
He added: “I am glad that thanks to Heath, I’ve had the opportunity to be on a movie set and sometimes it feels like I’ve been able to do stuff thanks to him, even if we’ve never met.
“I don’t know if he can hear me, but I feel like I owe him – basically, I love the guy.”
Ledger is best known for his roles in The Dark Knight, Brokeback Mountain and A Knight’s Tale. His last feature film appearance was in 2009’s The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus.
