Madame Tussauds Budapest Welcomes David Beckham Wax Figure
Madame Tussauds Budapest is joined by a wax figure of one of the world's most famous athletes, fashion icons, and media stars, David Beckham.
The 115-time England international midfielder, former player of Manchester United and Real Madrid, and Messi's current "boss" in Miami will stay in Budapest for a few months.
Beckham's figure is coming to Budapest from Madame Tussauds Prague as a guest and is expected to stay for several weeks. The Hungarian Madame Tussauds has 51 permanent figures, but from time to time exclusive guests also come to Palazzo Dorottya. Just recently, the wax figure of the world's fastest sprinter, Usain Bolt, spent a few months here.
During the production of the figure of the footballer, David Beckham personally met the staff of Madame Tussauds, who had the opportunity to measure the world star's body from head to toe. Thousands of biological data were recorded, from bone size to body weight to the athlete's facial features. The figure - like the other wax figures - was made in a studio near London with the involvement of visual artists, digital specialists, and other experts.
Another popular figure of the exhibition, Lionel Messi, is currently playing for Beckham's team in Miami, and Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce also shot a joint commercial with the star.
Guests can meet the Beckham figure in the interactive cafe part of the production. It awaits visitors standing on a red carpet, surrounded by photographers.
