Music, film and television star Ross Lynch will come face to face with his new wax figure for Madame Tussauds Orlando on Thursday, May 21 at the attraction’s new location at I-Drive 360, the entertainment and dining destination on International Drive.
Lynch met with Madame Tussauds artists where more than 300 precise measurements of his head and body were taken to create a perfect replica of the rising star. At the sitting, Lynch and his father were discussing several ideas for his figure’s pose, when he naturally fell into a casual stance that was reflective of his personality. Lynch also provided artists with the clothing and accessories for his figure, including a leather jacket, R5 guitar pick necklace, socks and his signature pink underwear, which he said his fans would expect to see.
“This whole experience with the Madame Tussauds team was so cool,” said Lynch. “I’m excited to see how the figure will look, especially since he’s rocking my pink boxers!”
Lynch made his acting debut on the hit Disney Channel show, Austin & Ally, as lead character Austin Moon. He then played the lead male role in the hit Disney Channel original film, Teen Beach Movie, as Brady, which was filmed on location in Puerto Rico. Lynch reprises his role in Teen Beach 2, which debuts this summer.
A talented self-taught musician, not only does Lynch sing and dance, he also plays piano, drums, bass and guitar, which ultimately led to the creation of his pop rock band, R5, whose five founding members include three of his siblings. He has released several singles, and sang on all the songs for the Austin & Ally soundtrack. R5’s second studio album, Sometime Last Night, will be released on July 10, 2015.
Madame Tussauds is world-renowned for the creation of detailed and lifelike wax figures that pay homage to A-list celebrities from film and television, sports icons, musicians from all genres, and notable figures from history and pop culture.
Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and taking more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.
