The career of a 45-year-old New York-based Israeli model suddenly got a new lease on life when a photographer friend’s pictures of her revealed that she is a dead ringer for US President Donald Trump’s wife, the Miami Herald reported.  So much so that, since the inauguration last month, Herzliya-born Mira Tzur has been hired eight times — at $3,000 a pop — to impersonate First Lady Melania Trump, alongside actor John Di Domenico, who has been impersonating The Donald for years.

Tzur — originally a ballet dancer and today the founder and CEO of a production company — said she feels “great admiration” for the Trumps, which “makes my job even better.” She and Melania, herself a former model, are the same height and weight; have similar facial features; are nearly the same age; and speak with a similar accent.

Watch Mira Tzur and John Di Domenico impersonate the Trumps below:
