Alongside the big stars and household names that fill movie theaters, there are a whole bunch of unsung heroes who pull off the daredevil feats that we love to see. Stunt doubles have a vital and irreplaceable job within the Hollywood circuit, risking their lives for our entertainment.

A flick through Imgur reveals some of these modest heroes, people we've seen but never put a name to the face of. These actors and their stunt doubles are uncannily alike – and the blockbusters of 2015 would not have been possible without them.

What's extra adorable about the stunt doubles for Mad Max: Fury Road is that two of them fell in love and got married while working on the movie.

Dayne & Dana - love at first site on set!

Dane Grant – who filled in for Jacob Tomuri (pictured above) – describes falling in love with Furiosa's double, Dayna, on set, the moment the 'stars aligned':

"We've said it before and it's quite cheesy, but it really was love at first sight. While we were punching each other we were falling for each other – quite rapidly."

Awwww! Love really does blossom in the most unlikely places...
