Final touches on King Colin Firth's waxwork

Wednesday October 12, 2011

Colin Firth is used to handling statuettes – and now he will have to get to grips with being one.

The Oscar-winning King's Speech star is being turned into a wax figure for London attraction Madame Tussauds later this year.

Model-makers have finished off the first stage by completing a clay version of his head.

Principal sculptor Louis Wiltshire has put the finishing touches to the lifelike image which will be used to create a mould for the final cast of the actor's head.
