When it comes to resemblance Ed Sheeran, Judi Dench‘s 23 year old grandson looks perfect.
Indeed, Samuel Williams is such a close double of Sheeran that fans of the four-time Grammy winner mistook him for the “Shape of You” singer and urged him for photos, according to a new report in The Sun.
“I was in the crowd at one of his shows and a lot of people wanted their photo with me and it got really close,” Williams said of the strange encounter. “People jumped around and jumped over to take a picture.”
The redhead tried to reassure them that he wasn’t who they thought he was.
Fortunately, Sheeran saved the day (working with his team) and helped Williams get out of the crowd. When Williams met Sheeran afterward, he stated that he was responsible for dispatching the cavalry in the form of his security guard: “He said, ‘Oh yeah, I sent him out. You needed the help.”
