Artists are shown crafting the features of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson with painstaking care. The clay moulds will be used for the group”s new wax figures.
In March, it was revealed that the boys would be immortalised in the famous museum. Since then, One Direction have been closely involved in the creative process and had two sittings for their waxworks, which each cost £150,000 to make.
Madame Tussauds”s spokeswoman Nicole Fenner told ! Online that the 1D boys loved every minute of the experience. “On hearing that they were going to get wax figures at Madame Tussauds, one word that Louis, Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall all repeated was “honoured” – I think they”re excited to be featured alongside some of their own heroes at the attraction,” she said.
“Our studios team had great fun working with the band at two sittings, taking hundreds of precise measurements and working hard to not only recreate totally accurate physical likenesses of the boys, but inject something of their energy and personalities into their figures too.”
Harry Styles was overwhelmed at the idea of being immortalised alongside his bandmates. “We”ve been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It”s crazy to think that we will be up there with them,” he said back in March.
Zayn Malik agreed saying, “All the biggest stars in the world get these wax figures made of them and why are we, five normal lads, getting these made”.
The band make their debut at Madame Tussauds London on 18 April. They will be sat on a school-style double bench so fans will be able to sit down and get up close and personal – with 1D”s wax figures at least.
