MARISA Abela looks eerily similar to the late Amy Winehouse as she continues to film controversial biopic Black To Black about the late star.
Dressed in a blue shirt and denim jeans Marisa, 26, was joined by Eddie Marsan, 54, who plays Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse.

The duo risked backlash from Amy’s devoted fans by filming at the Rehab singer’s real Camden home.
Amy’s body was tragically found in the North London property in 2011 when she was just 27-year-old.
Despite criticism the film is in poor taste Mitch has publicly backed Marisa to play his daughter.
Mitch said: “Marisa is Marisa and Amy is Amy… so it’s no big deal if they aren’t mirror images.
“Marisa is a great choice for the role.”
The film is set for release next year.
