Cinema 4D Theatre at Madame Tussauds (Above)
Since the studios where the sculptors work are not open to the public, few people know how our exquisite figures are created.
Over the years, hundreds of celebrities have made their way through Madame Tussauds’ “Stage Door” to the sittings studio, built specially to ensure privacy and confidentiality. Our Studio Secrets Seminar takes you behind the closed doors into a Studio Sitting.
