When ‘Back to the Future’ was released in 1985, makeup artists had to imagine what the characters would look like 30 years into the future.
As the three decade mark is approaching, Redditor Native-New-Yawkah decided to show just how close the makeup artists were. These images offer viewers a side-by-side comparison of three central characters. Comparing Lea Thompson to her Lorraine Baines McFly character, it’s clear that the stunning actress aged extremely well. While she definitely looks younger than her 30 year future movie self, the face similarity is uncanny. Taking Biff into account, who was played by Thomas F. Wilson, the artists almost created a twin—even the hairstyle is the same!
Finally, George McFly played by Crispin Glover just needs to lose the glasses.
