In an early screening of the biopic Back to Black, Marisa Abela resembles the late Amy Winehouse eerily.
MARISA Abela, who is playing Amy Winehouse in the controversial biopic Black To Black, has a striking resemblance to the late singer.
Marisa, 26, wore a blue shirt and denim jeans, and Eddie Marsan, 54, who portrays Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse, also attended the premiere.
Amy’s devoted fanbase could potentially react negatively because the pair used the Rehab singer’s actual home in Camden for filming.
Amy, only 27 years old when she died, was found dead in her North London flat in 2011.
Despite the fact that many people think the film is offensive, Mitch has stood by his choice of Marisa for the role of his daughter.
To which Mitch replied, “It’s not a big deal if Marisa and Amy aren’t mirror images because Marisa is Marisa and Amy is Amy.
“Marisa is a great choice for the role.”
The film is set for release next year.
