How Does 1D Measure Up?
One Direction get poked and prodded for the creation of their Madame Tussauds wax figures.
Ready your cameras, Directioners. Soon you can get up close and personal with One Direction — or at least, their wax likenesses.
The chart-blazing boy band is set to be immortalized by Madame Tussauds, the world-famous waxworks museum. The group's five members — Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson — have been measured from head to toe in preparation for their wax figures, which will launch in April.
“I’m just kind of a bit overwhelmed,” Styles said of joining the wax museum's comprehensive collection of famed figures. “We’ve been to Madame Tussauds and we’ve seen the kind of people who are in there. It’s crazy to think that we will be up there with them.”
Added Payne: “We actually first heard when we were at Madame Tussauds looking at all the figures, so it was even more like, ‘Wow, we’re actually going to get one of these made.’ They’re so amazing — the quality of work that goes on over there is mad.”
