Dom Smee is the young man who volunteered to be Richard III’s ‘body double’ in the follow-up Channel 4 Documentary Richard III: The New Evidence.
He was an ideal candidate as his scoliosis was almost Identical to Richard’s. I was lucky enough to meet him when he and an armour expert gave a brilliant talk about how Richard III would have been armed. You can read about it here on a Ricadian blog that I occasionally contribute to: Murrey and Blue
In the novel, Richard Liveth Yet. Richard meets him and has a chat, comparing their experiences, while they visit Leicester. Here is a picture of Dominic, wearing armour which would have been typical of the time.
He is in the process of writing a book and is also trying to raise funds so he can buy his own custom-made harnees (suit of armour). If you want to read more about this click here: The Dominic Smee Armour Fund
