Harry Potter has a Russian doppelgänger. Yes, you read that correctly. The beloved wizard, who was brought to life by Daniel Radcliffe in the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling's books, has a look-alike on Instagram that will make you do a double take. According to this Russian website, Instagram user @anupliy, whose real name is Nikolai, is well aware that he resembles Harry Potter — just without the lightning bolt scar, of course.
During an interview with the site, Nikolai revealed he sometimes gets stopped by people on the street and asked for an autograph. He says his friends noticed his resemblance to the sorcerer about five years ago and that he doesn't mind the comparisons because he happens to be a fan of the series, having read it "six to eight times." His least favourite? Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Just don't let Mad-Eye Moody know.
